They said they have a rule against "hate speech" but apparently saying you think President Obama will be assisnated by a black man is not racist at all. Response to my support ticket on that exact comment by someone:

Thank you for contacting deviantART, I will be assisting you with your support ticket.

This situation is not considered to be a problem as you appear to have completely misinterpreted the comment here.

No action will be taken.


You can't misintepret, "I think President Obama will be assassinated by another black man." Ok, that's pretty straight forward. I'm going to make sure to rspond back to them, but I just want to point out how much these lazy assholes cherry pick what they do or do not enforce.

There's a reason DA is the subject of so many Encyclopaedia Dramatica articles. Actually, there are reasons too numerous to list.
LauraD
^ This is true. There's an entire portal at Encyclopaedia Dramatica devoted to the asshattery infesting DA. >_>

Actually they're a bunch of idiots. I've seen/read some things about the mods and their reaction to things. But they can be a smart people when they get things straight. :/ They probably don't have brains. T-T

What you have read is not "hate speech"; it is an opinion.

There is no need for any action here as you have simply misinterpreted and overreacted to the statement.


Wow, awesome defense. Talking about someones assisination by saying it will be done by anohter negro is only an opinion now. I'm almost tempted to reply, "Well, I have the opinion you will be assassinated by a DA member at some point." Of course that will end up with me getting my account deleted and me losing half the hits for my fanfics.

Edit: My response to that:

Oh right, saying a black president will be assassinated by another black is totally a non-hate-fueled "opinion." I'm totally swayed by that argument. KKK members are only choosing their right to have opinions too. The same thing with Alqueda members on the internet. It's not hate-speech as long as DA doesn't want to mod it. I misinterpreted those comments. The same thing with that self-proclaimed Nazi you allow to be here. I must have just misinterpreted what he meant by being a Nazi. He must really be a Jew loving Nazi who's a big fan of unicorns and rainbows and was totally against the holocaust. If talking about people's assassinations is allowed now, I could think of some administrators I could have new "opinions" on, but seeing as how I'm sure a double standard like is famous here will be applied I'll refrain from that. Keep up the good work guys. Like really everyone on internet completely respects DA's total fairness and equality in how they cherry pick when to apply their own rules when they feel like it. Have a nice day.


I checked the "resolved" box, so I probably won't get more responses. He would've probably just continued to squak that pre-written line like a parrot thought.

Gamefaqs considers it a TOS violation to tell people that complaining to MS to change their gamertag will give them a free change. (It doesn't work. Unless your name IS offensive).

But man, telling people to tell MS that their broken 360 has RROD for a free fix is cool.

I may be mad cause I got modded for the top one once. Whenever it pops up though, I submit it to a mod. Cause I'm an ass.

Also 99% sure deviantart doesn't let in underage porn art, but they had a pregnant Haruka sitting their for AGES. It may still be there. Technically, it's not porn, but I think the artist drew it for some kind of fetishy porn value.

This I haven't witnessed.

85% of DA seems to be mindless review whoring, where any comment other than, "OMG kewl cute SO Kawaii," is considered flaming. Of the remainder, 10% are missionaries for insane, contradictory belief systems, like Furries For Jesus. The final 5% actually wants useful art commentary, to improve actual drawing skill. These people usually don't last long.

Well, you might get Ban Hammered anyway for disagreeing with their mods.

Not that this would be wrong. DA deserves what it gets, and moar.

Furries For Jesus.


These people are in fact real.

They are easily the weirdest bunch of Furries out there, after the vores, nazifurs, babyfurs, babynazifurs, and that one guy who I will not name for googling his username will give you his art.

That should go without saying.

One thing can be determined by using the internet. People believe it. It does not matter what it is.

That's pretty lame =/ But I wouldn't really know much about the extent of the problem, since I don't have anything to do w/ Deviantart

And from the sound of it, I don't think I want to have anything to do with it! tongue.gif
Elipse
This is why I left DA...and I no longer upload any pictures...or well barely.

I had a couple of deviations removed because I infringed copyright using Sonic Sprites and making him bleed. XP

Those were so epic...but I retired from all art and crap.

This has nothing common with your thread guys, but im just wondering why ppl use "nazi" everywhere as abuse xD


FWIW, I didn't use it abusivly. There really is a group of people who think the Nazi's had spiffy outfits and like to dress their characters up as Nazis.

People just like to use that word as the "controlling all society" word mostly because you're rarely going to find someone who gets offended and claims we are besmirching the good name of the Nazis, and well, it's recent enough that people actually know who it is without needing a college education.

We could call them "Chinese Government" but that would take too long to type, and people from China would be all "Hey, China rules".

While the Nazi's WERE extremely fashion-forward, it's pretty easy to understand why the term 'Nazi' is derogatory. And yeah, using a term like The People's Republic of China or the even more obtuse 'Pol Pot' just doesn't convey the concept of atrocity quite as succinctly.

Thnx for explanation, who could know it�s all about fashion ^^ So the original historical term was converted into some kind of "net-speak" and means expression of Nazi-(fashion)-fanboys, in one of several cases and also term for DA ill Mods, approximately?


In the United States, Nazi is slang for, "One who disagrees with my political opinion." In rarer cases, the term is used in reference to actual historic events.

Nah, I don't think my guy is as creepy in real life as that guy, but my guy has a terrible, terrible asphyxiation and breath control fetish and enjoys writing snuff stories.

You know someone's fetish is bad when you YEARN for the good ol days of expansion.
