Hey, my first journal of 2013! So, uh... Happy new year, I guess?!
Anyway, I'm just writing this to share a ridiculous note I got a few days ago (but didn't read until today, woops).
Violation Report update for your deviation 'Proud of it'
Your deviation Proud of it was reported for Explicit Pornography. The report was reviewed by a member of the Staff and action was taken, deleting the deviation and marking the report as Resolved.
Additionally, the following comment was provided:
A member of staff has reviewed this deviation and has determined that the theme itself, or one or more details present in the scene, has made the work unacceptable for submission here.
As such this deviation has been removed in accordance with our policies and should not be resubmitted.
The deviation in question: i.imagebanana.com/img/h1ymuvbf…
Because it's, like, totally explicit and I've never seen any pictures worse than that on deviantART!
But the best part is that I can't do anything about it. According to the deviantART policy, obscene stuff isn't allowed on dA. (I didn't believe this at first either, but it's true: about.deviantart.com/policy/et… )
While definitely not explicit pornography, "Proud of it" sure is obscene, I'll give 'em that.
Man, this is so stupid. I can't decide between laughing and facepalming.
Well, at least this time they told me about deleting the deviation...
