According to deviantArt that is. 
Because in less than a year (at the time this was written that is, hence the date on the images below), they went ahead and geobanned Syria again. I mean, it's utterly fantastic to be the victim of whatever politics and politicians simply because you live in a part of the world that isn't approved by anyone, as it seems. 

It's tiring, I have a ton of back and forth emails between myself and the help desk that opted to stop replying ages ago. But let's give them some credit of trying to solve things before absolutely going nah fuck this in the form of copy/pasted replies that went 'we're trying, please wait' then going back to 'nah, fuck this, not bothering with you anymore, in fact, we are revoking everything we did lol'  

This is how the site looks to me (and had been looking since last year)

annnd this is the first email that went out to them:

nov 14th 2018

today is May 20th 2019 

Last time they bothered answering -properly- was Jan 31st. the last time they bothered answering after a threat was made to make this public March 10th or so. So guess what, it's now public. 


To be honest, I am done trying to put any sort of effort into this place. They made it clear people who are unlucky enough to be in places Israel and the USA politicians don't approve of are not welcome. 

Why am I speaking out again? Because this isn't right. and I also have a foul mouth according to many *cough*staff*cough people

I mean, it does take a special kind of stupid who initially did this:

Well, I'll be damned
Staff reply here: comments.deviantart.com/1/7310…
And we WON! We did it!
and my comment here: https://comments.deviantart.com/1/731065159/4555022355 stating why this is still up

Edit #4: Iran is geobanned too see here Imagine!
Bravo deviantart, bravo, I applaud you
:clap:
Please share this, every bit of support counts. I am probably getting my account perma banned after this journal, but I am voicing this discrimination and I want as many people to see it as possible. 
I know people will have various opinions about this. Voice them as you please, but politics shouldn't meddle with art. This isn't fair. This isn't right. You can't deny me service because some politician says so.
Edit: feb 17th: There's a change.org petition now too


then rushed and apologized after a long week of PR nightmare 
Si vis PacemAs of March 1st 2018, I can officially say we won. Deviantart is accessible again. I've held back on posting anything until I made sure we have officially won and here it is:

I am beyond grateful for everyone who fought with me, for every single comment, for every friend and stranger who chose to take a stand and join their voices to mine. None of this would have happened if it wasn't for you. Yes, you, you've helped make a difference in the world. That difference ensured that people who have to survive through bad situations day in and day out can still come here for a safe haven away from the grim realities outside. Politics should never restrict art, people should not be discriminated against for whatever reason. 
Our actions didn't stop at Syria, no, they also extended to help Iran, and Crimea which all had been geobanned earlier for the same claims. You've changed the world for over 100 million people. Yes, I know that not


to go through the same cycle again while going around Waving banners and screaming equality for all, yeah no. 


There are people here, people who go on about their days the same way as anyone else would. Live, laugh, strive, survive, but that too isn't allowed. Does anyone even remotely think of the people? and I mean the normal civilians, not politicians, not soldiers, just people? because none of what you're doing helps end your so-called-war nor ease it. it just makes an economic collapse happen faster and it denies people out of their most basic rights. 

We are humans. We have no hand at war nor your twisted politics. So damn you to hell a million times over for being hypocrites who wave high banners and shout fancy words while playing this dirty game in the background. 


so here you have it. Congratulations deviantart into turning into a dead horse that isn't worth beating.
