Man, I should be used to it by now but I still think that it is REALLY strange when someone downloads literally hundreds of images from my Deviant page...which let's face it would probably take hours...But they don't leave a single comment. This happened a few times over the weekend. I don't know, I just think that's weird ;)

I'm one of those who faves and run, and comment sparingly. I would prefer to provide more than a comment which just says 'I like this' (which is what a fave represents to me).

Downloading an image (where available) without leaving a fave is weird to me.

Perhaps they could think of the words to say how awesome your art is?

But yes a bit strange.

I've had that happen to me already and even though I never thought of it as being weird, I can see your point. 

Now just imagine if they replied and just said, awesome. I guess to some that would be enough but I like more meat to the comments or at least something unique.

I just know in my own case, f I am going to spend a lot of time downloading a ton of someone's art, I like to make some connection with the creator, however brief. It's easy to call out the folks that download 100 things at one sitting but I realize that comments in general are a very rare thing these days.
