So I regularly browse the artistic nude category. I do this not to police or discriminate, but because I enjoy looking at artistic nudes and collecting them in my favourites. However I also tend to report those users who take the piss by disregarding the rules and terms of service of the website.

I regularly leave a polite notice on those deviations that feature erect penises, spread vaginas, spread arses etc. The comment is usually something like :

"Please review the following regarding explicit and pornographic images FAQ #565: You prohibit the submission of 'pornographic imagery'; what do you consider this to be?"

I think most people would agree that this is not aggressive, not patronising, not insulting and not demeaning.

However, I do get the odd user who will message me back with foul, abusive and insulting profanity. Their underlying message is that they are in the right and I am in the wrong. It doesn't matter about DA's policies regarding sexually explicit photography, they are always right because DA is wrong (and therefore by extension I am too). "Art is spontaneous and limitless" most sinners will say.

Well this message is my way of telling those of you who flout the rules a few things about me and my attitude to your 'artwork'.

-I do not care how right you feel you are, you are breaking the rules.
-I am not a policeman, officer, gestapo whatever.
-I am not scared of penises, sex, female genitalia or sexually explicit images.
-I am definitely not intimidated or scared of anyone on this website.
-I am perfectly happy with the size of my own penis, sexual orientation etc and I do not get envious over other men's penises.
-I am not envious regarding the number of page views I get or the number of times my deviations get 'favourited'.
-I am sick of the fappers, masturbaters, wankers who use this site as a way to get themselves off.
-I am sick of those who support users who break the rules of this site, in other words the straight, gay and bi male and female sycophants who leave perverted messages regarding what they would do with x y or z. Please take it somewhere else or take a cold shower.
-I am sick of those who leave nasty messages on deviations that have broken the rules/TOS. If you feed the trolls they will just come back at you, it also reflects badly on those of us who do this in a nice and supportive way.
-I am not responsible for your anger towards DA and their rules.
-I do this because I like DA and what it stands for. DA is not a pornography site and will never be. If you wish to post such images please go to flickr or xhamster.
-I am not perfect, but I understand the rules and TOS for this site. I have the right to report your deviations if they violate these.
-If you block me I can still report you, just in case you are not aware.
-If you sin with one deviation I will check your entire back catalogue of deviations to see that you don't have any more.
-If you are a serial offender don't be surprised if I leave a message on each deviation commentary and also on your page to ensure you are aware of the rules/TOS.
-When you become hostile, offensive, personal it is you who looks stupid and immature. Not me.

I hope this is now clear.

I'm Mostly offended by the stupid amount of mangakas wannabe, naruto worshippers and gothick imaginery, just to name a few. I am more offended by the levels of ultralow quality of most deviantArtIsts than for the amount of (presumably) Porn splashing all over DA. Overall, i'm mostly offended by the great piles of bad taste displayed un numerous profiles that declare him/herselfs artists.

But, you know, i'm happier spending my tme improving my skills ( or the lack of them) than patronicing or witchhunting "Perverts".

Yes, it's against the rules, but the rules are kinda blurry. 

Just to mention: an erected penis IS NOT PORN: Context, context, context ALLWAYS, and before that: quality and Taste.

And if ju didn't know, there are lots of people that fap at the most strage things possible...we can bann teddy bears because DA gets full of flurrylovers, or can we?

Dick is a name.

be aware that i asking for a polite exange of opinions, i expect the same. I am not being rude to you and i avoided direct insults. If you find my arguments bad or porrly exposed, i'll be most happy to share opinions with you.

(not starting a Flame war, just trying to water it before it gets hotter)

And short for Richard  Nixon as in "Tricky Dick". Nasty Nickname, but a good one Don't you agree?

Thanks for being polite and all that...a conversation is better, allways, than a flame war.

WOW! This is really amazing! :wow: It's something that it was needed to be said since a loong time I think!! :nod: I hope we can be friends, and also anti-porn/theft Paladin too if you like! :excited: (like the other user said *chuckles*) Because I  truly appreciate deviantart a lot and what this comunity stands for! Deviantart was never a site for blatant imagery of other people's genitalia, torture and rape,  or any other kind of porn! that it's not art in any way and will never be! 
I think the points you said will clear up a lot of things for all those sinners, cos they are really well thought, precise, nice and clear! :D I think even I wouldn't have said this better! :wow:

I think your report is more than enough. There's no need for you to leave a message with the rules since you don't work for dA, therefore it's not up to you to apply the rules. Having you go around all those galleries leaving such kind of messages (even if they actually deserve them) makes you look like a stalker who has nothing more to do with your life.
