I didn't intend on making a rant until 3 minutes ago. Since they have appeared to cease stealing art I have kept their user's name out but I will add it if they have start stealing again, well here we go! If you are uninterested in this, feel free to scroll to the bottom for my updates~
So there is a user that was caught stealing art and was called out by several people (myself included).The art was eventually removed.
Now, if that was the whole story I wouldn't be making a journal~
There is usually two things that an art thief does at this point, either apologize or continue to be a brat about it. This lovely person chose the latter. I will copy what they say below and comment on it, sentence by sentence. I preface this by saying that if you know the user, DO NOT under ANY CIRCUMSTANCES go and harass this user. Now, with that out of the way lets begin (italics: them, normal: me)
Title: Deal with it.
All ready off to a bad start
Don't trust people
They might be killers or worse.
A bit of an exaggeration, but good intentions I suppose
You don't even know who you are dealing with.
'Dealing with' umm, ok?
People are stupid who trust people who is from the internet.
People on here steal art.
Like you did? Ok, Kettle callin' the pot?
God will judge people who sin every day.
Theft is a sin~ 8th commandment is "Thou shalt not steal" (I had to google this to be sure )
If the people who steal art from other people well then that's on them.
On who? The thief or the artist? The artist shouldn't have to worry 24/7 if someone is going to take their work and claim it as their own. That's why there are laws in place in order to protect artists from theft. But that doesn't matter to you, does it?
People can't be perfect.
*Hannah Montana music plays softly*
Let's face it the world is getting a whole lot worse.
I guess? Not a good way to view things
Judgement day is coming soon.
You can't trust anyone on anything.
That's not a healthy way to think
Ask yourself this 'Am I a good person?
I like to believe so~ On the other hand, you should really do some self-reflection
Don't trust anyone that you don't know.
Solid advice again
You can blame yourselves for letting people steal your artwork on here.
Just because YOU didn't want to put in the time and effort to create something yourself doesn't give you the right to take other artists' work. No. Just NO.
You are in the wrong here.
So deal with it
NO! I will not just 'deal with it' if someone goes and steals art in this site, I will try my damn hardest to find the actual artist to let them know their work has been stolen. I will make sure that the entire site knows what the thief has done/continues to do.
Now for the updates:
~ For my one year anniversary here, I will be doing a redraw of one of my old pieces! Now the question is, what should I redraw? Well that's where you all come in! Please comment either here with what I should redraw!
