Stop making shitty callout journals for deviants who trace art. That's literally what reporting is for.
"of course deviantart never does anything". You want them to permanently IP ban a 13 year old for tracing a picture? They can't. But I mean?
What? You want them to encourage your giant pity party? Your torch flame war? You want 30 more people in the comment section harassing a 14 year old? That's all I'm seeing. OF COURSE they are being defensive. YOU put them there.
Of course someone who cannot draw well is Frankensteining together multiple images from people they like. You just keep REPORTING images. If staff sees them as "just enough", it sucks, but oh well. YOU are the original. That alone should be enough, if the insecurity in you can't handle past that, that's in you.
A child re-creating your image in their own attempts and butchering it is GOING to happen, 7.whatever BILLION people, the internet is GOING to get a hold of your content. Probably just as many you DON'T see on bootleg sites you DON'T see, papers in some kids notebook you DON'T see. What doesn't help is a journal telling hundreds of people to harass this person. Stop it. It doesn't do ANYTHING except air out dirty laundry and generate butthurt, drama and create a bunch of nonsense.
Then you just get paranoia and every post then on out has to be weighed and measured EVEN if it isn't actually an issue. A self depreciating cycle. Stop. Quietly report, keep doing so, shit eventually gets removed. I know it doesn't poweder your asshole and make you FEEL special, but that's kinda just how it goes.
