i know everyone else by their tumblr usernames

If you’re gonna delete an artist’s comments from their post, at least be honest with everyone about it. Don’t make excuses like “oh it’s not my ‘blogs style’” or “they wrote too much” or whatever else. Just own it and say “I care about the product, not the person, and so I consciously make every effort to erase them from their own work, because no one needs to know what they have to say about what they pour their hard work and dedication into every day. I’m entitled to display their work apart from them however I choose because it’s the internet and I’m a selfish twit, and they can’t do anything about it so I’m going to take every single advantage of them I can.”
