Well for years DA have ignored the fact that people use their website as a free graphics site allowing untalented thieves to download high quality images they then use for their own uses ensuring that the creative person, the artist, doesn't get paid.
The quality of the art works on the site has not deteriorated, it has plummeted! I've seen quality artists turn their backs on the site forever and wondered why, until today that is.
In the past week I've been presented in my inbox with low quality shots of vaginas, penises and anuses, these images weren't artistic, they weren't even good fetish shots, most of them weren't even good photographs. Some of these shots were poor quality drawings, and some of those were drawn by people who it appears had never actually seen the body part they were representing.
Now the reason for my rant, I woke tonight, preparing to head off to work to find that some asshat has chosen to report my work, in one piece which has received numerous favourites and comments, it was deemed to be pornographic and it has been deleted. No right of reply, no right to comment, the site is becoming another version of Facebook. Well I'm fucked off, I'm going to remove my work, and they can fuck their premium membership too! I did like that I could put shots on here that weren't actually pornographic and people had the chance to appreciate them, it gave me the chance to see others work, quality work that inspired, not the shit that hits my inbox every day, poor quality, bad photographs, rubbish that no one cares about, it takes up my download, wastes my time and I'm over it.
