That's cool and all what with NFT being the new buzz word having it's fifteen minutes of fame but, now here me out, what about the art thieves HERE on DeviantArt stealing art from other artists HERE on DeviantArt?
I've come across multiple accounts that have ripped off other artists, often removing watermarks, then not crediting the original artist in any way, and posting to their own accounts.
DeviantArt (Wix Inc.) is trying to make more money to raise the price of stock for their investors at the cost of frustrating their user base. I woulden’t be surprised they eventually put the entire site behind a paywall like the Wall Street Journal or the New Yorker
Could someone in @TEAMS please look into doing something about the continuous wave of spam that seems to be endemic.
