Cosplay, Fanart and Plagiarism

(gif curtesy to Mel)


TL;DR: An artist traced (!) my cosplay photo without permission, gave me zero credits, sold the prints at a con and denied she’s ever seen my photo.

First, both of us, the cosplayer and the photographer, want to say that it would never have come to this if the artist would have immediately apologized to us in person, instead of being extremely rude to us and letting things escalate. A simple sorry and taking down the prints would’ve sufficed.

In the beginning of January, being hyped with the new SU episodes, I immediately fell in love with Blue Diamond and cosplayed her. Two months ago, a friend let me know that an artist she saw drew a fanart based on my photo. I was extremely flattered and happy, but also kinda sad the artist gave me zero credits. Us cosplayers and photographers work really hard to get a nice result, and everyone is happy when their photo serves as an inspiration for another artwork. I wrote a letter to her stating that I love her art, but I’d like her to credit me as a source of inspiration (adding the screen shot).

For two months, there was silence. I tried it again a few weeks ago, but again, no response. Okay, what can you do…



Last weekend we had a big con in Germany with a huge artist alley and both of us, the photographer and the cosplayer, attended. Suddenly, a friend came to us and said that there’s a girl selling this exact drawing. We were puzzled and decided to go to her booth and look at it ourselves.

sns month

As I have mentioned here, I was working on a sns month that will be hosted from 1st december till 31st december. Each day of the month has their own theme and three different prompts. I even planned one big event, and two smaller ones [→ more information under ›special events‹]

Then, one little information: The last years, bahare re-blogged all the posts that were made for the week on her own blog and tagged them, so y’all could find them easily. I want to do the same, but with a difference. I created a extra sns blog for all the events, like sns weeks, sns days, secret santa sns, sns month - and there we will reblog everything. ›We‹ because I asked friends of mine to help me manage this blog. [You can see here who they are.] The blog is called @snsfestivals.

Also, many of you may already know, but there is a discord group for sns. Discord is basically just a message app, with special and great features, such as voice chats and servers (which are group chats). It’s very safe since you don’t have to give your personal information away and you can control who finds you and not. If you are interested in joining, please drop a message at @dobe-and-teme


 RULES 

  1. You can post any format you want for this month: fanfiction, fanart, videos, gifs, graphics, edits, analysis, headcanon, etc but it’s has to involve sns as a main pairing or Sasuke/Naruto as a main character! Other ships and characters are allowed, but it can not be the focus.
  2. Reposting is not allowed, unless you are the original creator or have been given the permission from the original creator. If you are not the original creator, please make sure to credit the creator and add a link to the original post.
  3. NSFW is allowed! But it must be properly tagged, flagged as sensitive, and/or hidden beneath cuts as necessary. Also please don’t forget to tag it with #nsfw.
  4. Please don’t post things ahead of time! You can certainly work on things before hand, and you can definitely post things late, but don’t post anything for prompts before the prompt day!
  5. Make sure that you tag every post with #snsmonth2017 within the first five tags and the day from which the post belongs to. [like this → #day 7]
  6. Try to stay positive and don’t spread any hate. This should be our month, don’t let some anti ruin it for you. If you see an anti-post, please try to ignore it - it’s not worth it and just ruins the sns month.

SPECIAL EVENTS 」 

→ the big event is the Secret Santa Event, which will take place on the 25th december. Every person that participates has to prepare a sns related presents for someone I assign them with - in exchange, they will get a present from another person. If you are interested in participating, here are some informations. Everyone who is not interested, can skip this part:

 If you are interested in participating, you have to write me a private message, no asks! If there is someone you absolutely don’t want to make a present for, write it please in the message! You can also make three wishes for people you want to make a present for. » Warning! It can happen that this person isn’t participating or I have to assign them with someone else. 
You will not known which person you have to prepare a present for until the 1st december. You can still of course prepare a present even before you know for who it is, since you will likely not know the person personally. But it can happen that the person is a close friend of yours, so it’s better when you start preparing the present when you know for whom it is.
 If you don’t know what you should prepare or you don’t have any ideas, just message me and I will contact the person for you, to ask if they would like anything in particular.
 When you post the present, please add a ›Secret Santa for @url
 Deadline for Registrations: 30th November

 one of the smaller events will take place on one week of december. Bahare did it last year, and I would like to continue with it. Last year she streamed all sns related episodes on rabbit, and I really love the idea. The stream will take place on 7am and 7pm (in Germany, UTC+2) and will last till 10am and 10pm, and we will watch the exact same episodes on both times. If you still have questions, come and ask me!
      → The stream will take place from 11th - 17th december.

 the other small event is the 31st of december. On the last day of the month, I would like to ask you all to spread positive vibes in the fandom.  I want the month to end with something special, something that will make everyone a little more happier. On this day, I want you guys to send lovely asks to your favorite persons! Be it a amazing sns artist, graphic maker, writer, blog or just one of your favorite persons in general. Go and write them something to make them happy. [To the people receiving this asks: It would be nice if you could tag your posts with #snsmonthvibes, so we can find them and reblog them, thank you.]

“You can break my soul, take my life away, beat me, hurt me, kill me, but for the sake of lord..don’t ever touch him”// taegi. 

I’ve already seen a taegi set pic like this but i decide to do another one in my way with gifs so it’s not completely my idea. I’m not the owner of the gifs, i just edit them so please if you’re the owner contact me, i’m already sorry for use them without permission. 

If you repost please give credit. 

Even if you don’t do art, gifsets, edit videos and photos, write fanfics, you are important and fandom wouldn’t exist without you.

That also doesn’t mean that you’re not an artistic type of person.

There are two types of artistic personality:

a creator, who writes, paints, draw, do videos etc.

and a consumer.

The person, who sees art, for whom it’s made. Without them it wouldn’t matter, because there would be nobody to see the creation. It’s one of the most important roles, but many people do it badly.

How to be a good recipient?

First of all, you need to give feedback. Every time you take time to see/read something. And it can’t be any feedback. It must be good.

Doesn’t matter if it’s a fanart, fic, video, poem or something else. Give kudos. Comment it. Even if you didn’t like it. Especially, if you didn’t like it. It takes only 30 seconds to write something and it shows the author that you saw their work and took time to think about it. It really motivates them.

What you should write?

Well, anything you want. “Great job, keep going!”, “I love the way you did it!”, “Wow, amazing work, I’d love to see more!” is enough. Really.

 Of course, if you decide to say something more it’s great! Authors love to read your thoughts about their work. Tell them about the colours they used, how they match the scene and character, how they build the atmosphere with words, how you love the character development, the typhography they made. Tell them about everything that made you “wow, this is amazing”, about the piece that made you smile or cry or laugh or any reaction you had.

Tell them that you are waiting for sequel for this fic. That you can’t wait for the next fanart of this pairing. That you love seeing their work.

Thank them for it. I know that you know that they do it as a hobby, but thank them for spending their time anyway.

Reading this makes their day. And they’ll tell you that.

Okay, but what if you didn’t like it?

Then you have to write a comment anyway. Criticism is the most important for artist. Without it they can’t make progress.

Writing critique is harder than writing a positive feedback. You have to be precise here. The most important rule is:

DO NOT WRITE “I DON’T LIKE IT”

like really

if you want to write something like that, then better don’t write anything.

You must add what you didn’t like, why, and how they can change that. Constructive criticism is the only one which matters. Otherwise you’ll make them not want to create anymore.

So how good criticism looks like?

“The colours you used don’t fit together. If you used warmer shade of red it would look better!”

“The main character of the story is too perfect, you should add them some flaws to make them more real. Perhaps something with their looks - too thin mouth or some scar? Their personality is also too mary sue. Try to give them some bad traits, maybe they can be blunt or a bit ignorant and listen to nobody’s advice?”

“The person you drew has anatomically incorrect legs - it looks like they don’t have knees. Try to work on it looking at some photos.”

The problem with criticism is that inexperienced artists often take it too personally, like an attack. Good solution is to tell them something nice.

“The scenere is beautiful, but…”
“I love how you write descriptions, but there’s something you need to work on…”

When you write comments it’s also important NOT TO DEMAND ANOTHER PIECE OF ART/CHAPTER/SEQUEL/WHATEVER

It makes them not wanting to contiune their work. So, yeah, encourage them, but not demand. “Is there any chance you’ll do it?”, “I can’t wait for more!”, “Please, continue this, I really want to know what happens next!”

What else you can do as a recipient?

Reblog. Not only like, but also reblog, so more people can see it. Don’t repost and if you have to ALWAYS GIVE CREDITS. And no, “source: tumblr” is not a credit (I feel like I should do another post about it)

Buy. I know all of us are broke, but many artists are really cheap (and that makes me sad). Just ask them to do something customized for you, like keychains or something like that. And pay them for it. Or just donate.

And remember

EVEN IF YOU DON’T CREATE YOU ARE IMPORTANT IN FANDOM AND IT WOULDN’T BE THERE WITHOUT YOU

YOU ARE IMPORTANT

YOU MATTER

(feel free to add some things that I forgot and tell me all mistakes I made, it’s late and my brain is tired so I could use some wrong words but I tried)

Let’s talk about reposting, shall we? c:

I’m a little late to the party because I’m a dumdum who thought this was in August, but here we go. Long post ahead.

Funnily enough (or not), because I was late to join this protest, I posted a comic celebrating a follower milestone during the blackout and barely 2 HOURS later, it got reposted on Instagram. I kid you not:

(if you can’t see it, I posted mine 20 hours ago, and the repost was made 19 hours ago)

Anyway, this really puts a bad taste in my mouth. Not only was my work reposted almost immediately after it was made, it was also by someone who doesn’t even follow me AND they even changed up the caption for their own, thereby erasing my message for the comic I made.

I feel really disrespected as a creator. I made that comic to thank my followers, and right off the bat someone who is not even following me goes on and snatches it up.

The intent to repost this before anyone else was clear. Not once have I received a message asking for permission. It’s like… nobody cared to ask me first? It’s okay as long as they slap my name on the description like “lairep on tumblr made this”? Haha. no

Did they directly link the original post? Did they directly link my blog? No. And let’s be real, who’s even going to bother manually typing my name on the searchbar to go to my blog to see more of my posts when they can easily find them on some reposter’s account? Just giving the name is not enough credit. Just giving a name is not enough “exposure” or whatever new excuse a reposter has for doing it.

I’m not asking for much. Just don’t make me feel this way. Like I don’t matter besides providing content for you to peruse as you please. I do this for fun and I enjoy sharing, but I have the right to share in however way I want to. I’m the one making it, not you.

It took me a lot of courage to even start posting anything at all, because I’ve had previous experience of art theft that drove me from drawing and sharing for years… and if this goes on—- let’s just say I don’t want a repeat of that. I want to share, I want to make content, so please don’t do things that would make me want to stop.

Please don’t make other creators feel this way. Let creators feel like they matter. That you appreciate them. That you want them to keep making content you and others would enjoy. Make them feel the joy they give you with their posts. Make them feel like staying in the fandom instead of leaving.

Don’t steal, don’t repost. At the very least, drop a line to ask permission. It’s not hard to click links and type words. Even just to show you respect them as a person. It’ll be worth it, I promise. c:

This has been a long post (and I haven’t even touched on PLAGIARISM), but I had to say my piece. I fully support this blackout for me, my friends, and for other creators who are dealing with this kind of thing every. freaking. day.

Edit: Accidentally posted early instead of drafting, but I wanted to say I love all you artists/writers out there who bring joy and angst to the fandom and I hope you continue doing the thing c: I support you against all thieves, reposters, and plagiarizers.

Reyna Writes: Not Your Choice

Here’s a fic for @miraculousblackout, addressing the concept of reposting to “share the artists’ work with others”.

Enjoy!

~Reyna


The sound of coins hitting the ground distracted Marinette from her grocery list, doubled with the large coin that hit the side of her shoe. There was muffled grumbling behind her–clearly someone was having a clumsy moment, and was not happy about it. Marinette could totally relate.

She bent down, grabbing the coin and turning around.

“Here you go.”

“Oh, thank–” The woman straightened up and paused, the shock that crossed her face echoing Marinette’s once she got a good look at the woman before her.

Ugh. And she had been having such a good day…

“…Symone,” she said, working to at least be civil (though it was more than Symone deserved), holding out the dropped coin for Symone to take. Symone sniffed, snatching the coin back as she straightened her blazer, smoothing out the sleeves as if she wished to intimidate Marinette with her expensive wardrobe.

‼️‼️PLEASE PLEASE READ THIS!!!!!‼️‼️

Hi everyone~!!! I know I haven’t been on in ages and I’m so sorry for that 🙈 but I’ve been super busy with everything and haven’t had the time!

‼️IM OPENING COMMISSIONS AGAIN!!!!‼️

I know I had them open before and tbh didn’t get many. But I wanted to open them again as a friend of mine has been diagnosed with Moyamoya disease, it’s a disease that attacks the arteries in the brain and is very painful for her.

This disease normally only affects people over 40 years old, and has only happened twice in America. My friend is only 18 years old! A big problem is that the only doctor that can help her (who had helped the other two patients) is in America. A lot of family and friends are raising money to help her.

So, I wanted to try and help her myself too! So I wanted to open commissions up again to try and raise money to help her get over Moyamoya.

So, please will you commission me and help me raise money!! Also if you don’t want to commission me and just want to donate that would be such a great help too ☺️ or if you can’t do either, please Reblog this post! Anything to please help 💙💙

anonymous asked:

as a person who creates content myself, I do not understand why you're so pressed about your work being posted. If someone reposts mine and just goes credit: then whatever I'm chill with it why are you making such a big deal out of it, nothing you share on the internet is private and of course people will share it around, you need to chill the fuck out

So here I am, trying to get away from all the negativity in this site and on the internet because I have spent months trying to convince myself to not delete this blog and have been getting more reasons to delete for the last few days. And then I came into my blog to find solitude on the one hour I had before my exam and comes this message. To be honest, I wanted to just delete this message and block your ass from my blog, but since you have rudely told me to “chill the fuck out”, so I closed my app instead, walked into campus with a wide fake smile over my face and hoped that I could “chill” within the next hours of the exams so I can respond to you properly.

Now, since you told me yourself that you are a content creator, I need you to imagine this. Imagine yourself creating whatever content you make. I don’t know how long you need to make them, but let me just generalize it by how long me and my fellow writers needed to write. Let’s say you spent almost a full week creating your content - planning, choosing the images and concept of your content, working on them to be exactly how you wanted them to appear, then finalize it with editing. You lose hours of sleep, losing concentration on your class/work, and even think about the content while you’re out with friends - and then you feel the anxiety about posting them on the internet. You spend minutes, hours, contemplating in front of your screen, thinking - “will people like it? Is it good enough? will I have notes?” And then you take a deep breath and click that “post” button, and off the children of your creation went to the surface of the internet and beyond reach of your followers. And then the whole day and the next you find people looking at our content, giving likes and reblog, adding notes, commenting, giving feedbacks and spreading them around more with reblogs. Imagine how you feel. Doesn’t it feel exhilarating? Do you feel good about yourself and proud to see how people react to your creation? Of course you do.

Now come the reposters. Imagine they come to your blog, copy your creation and repost them on their blog/site/page. They don’t ask permission, they don’t ask if it’s okay to repost them with or without credit, and they don’t credit you properly (no links, just names, not even your full url), or even worse, they repost without taking your captions either. Imagine people coming to their blog, finding the content, and then praising them, giving them likes, reblogging the contents on their blog, adding their notes. Do you feel the spread? Do you get the notes? Do you receive the messages of the viewer asking you if you can share more quality contents as the ones they found? No. They will talk to the reposters. They will add the reposters’ notes. Do they come into your blog to give you a praise? No. Because I know that there are people who are too lazy to find source when it is not added, and because credits without linking back does not bring viewers back into your blog as the source. Do you feel good about this? Do you really feel proud having somebody else receiving feedbacks and praises (and probably more followers) of your hard work instead of yourself?

This is what happens to us. That is what we feel. This is what we are up against. Yes, I am well aware that this is the internet. People have easy access on every content being shared throughout the internet, and the only thing that I am asking (along with everyone else) is to be respected. Why is it so hard to respect our preferences of not having our work being distributed without our knowledge? Why is it so hard to respect our wish to protect our work? Aside from this blog, I also create things for a living. I have my work taken, stolen, being rebranded by plagiarists in real life. It sucks. It hurts. But the most painful thing I have to endure is losing money. Now we spread our work and our contents here for free, and the only thing I gain from sharing my contents are people’s feedbacks, the notes, the likes, the reactions and the respects. Nothing more. Now if I lose all of that, what else do I have left? Why is it so hard to have people ask for permission first? Have you not seen content makers asking people to “not repost”, to “not cut the credits on pictures” and to “not delete caption”? Have you not seen gif makers adding their credit on their gifs instead of captions because people repost them without their knowledge? Do you think people would do this if they are okay having their content reposted?

Look, if you are okay having your credits taken away from you and your content, then it’s fine with me. If you’re okay about people reposting without permission and proper credit, then I have no say on it. If you are okay with plagiarism, then please do not attempt to impose your personal preference to us when we are all here trying to protect our work the only way we can. And if you don’t agree with me, then it’s fine with me. Just don’t tell me how to feel or think, because you have no idea what it’s like to be me.

Help Please

I really did not want to make this post because it just ends up making me look like a prick, but I’m so frustrated and do not know what else to do. So if you follow any of my work artwork, especially, the SasuSaku fanart, I make it a point to ask people not to repost without permission. If you ask then please by all means go ahead. I love for people to share my work. 

That is still IF YOU ask. 

I recently found an Instagram who had reposted my work. I was angry, but I calmly asked her/him to just give credit to my instagram. That’s all it really boiled down to. Credit. 

She does give credit to all other artist. However, after many times of asking her/him:

they refuse to and ignore my plead. I have sent private messages. I have sent public messages. I have even comment on works they have recently added to just reply to me or look at the comment. Nothing

I have tried all I can. I even tried reporting the post as a last resort but Instagram won’t let me as invasion of copy right etc. The other options are not true so I do not wish to report her or him that’s not true. This has really gotten to me more than I like to admit. If anyone has any advice please tell me or any suggestions. Thanks. 

All I want is a credit link. I don’t care if she keeps it up….being ignored just kinda hurts when you’ve worked hard on a piece. 

Let me just say, in the past this has happened before but in the end we talked about it and it was all good. we were able to resolve the problems without issues. And I want to thank them for this because I never knew how bad it could feel for a no response. 

EDIT: I was able to get help about how to report the post! Thank you everyone so so very much! Anyone that like or shared it! It means a lot to me as a small creator. Hopefully this will solve the problem! Once again, Thank you to everyone. 

I’m not quite sure how to approach the situation, I don’t really want to make a huge deal out of it but I’m not going to lie, it kind of hurts.

A very popular blog took one of my edits and merely edited it a bit and changed the font of it. But it’s literally the same as mine, word for word, and they didn’t give me any credit. I came up with the wording myself, it’s not a quote (I wouldn’t have cared if it was a popular quote of some sort). What I’m afraid of is other blogs seeing my original edit and thinking I was the one who copied them, though you can go to my original and compare when the two were posted. I don’t want to cause any unnecessary drama, but I just want to address how I feel about my edits being reposted or even copied. I don’t care if my edit inspires you and you want to make one a bit similar, that’s fine! You don’t have to credit me. But if you repost my edit without any credit, edit my work without any credit, it really really hurts me. I don’t want to make a huge fuss, the edits are fairly simple to make but they’re something I enjoy making and to see a very popular blog I looked up to and admired a lot copy my work is honestly very hurtful.

So I just want to say, please don’t repost my content and don’t edit it to make it your own, unless you credit me!! You don’t even have to credit me if you use my work as your icon or header, so I feel like I’m not asking for much. Sorry for going on about this, I’m just still really surprised and hurt by this and I never expected the blog to do something like this. Ily guys very much but please don’t copy other people’s work and claim it as yours, it’s so disrespectful and NOT a positive thing in the positivity community!!

FAQ

Okay so I’m doing this because people keep asking the same stuff over and over again. Please read this before asking me something. If possible, do not use the IM please I keep that thing for friend and its makes me unconfortable to speak with strangers that way. I mainly answer asks privately. Please remember that English is not my native language. I’m trying my best but I’ll still make mistakes.

Finally I am starting up commissions. I recently got some encouragement to give it a try and plus with having a few examples with the kind of artwork I can make, I may as well make a little money as times are getting a bit tough and I often do find myself in a pinch.

Smooth Predators and Plagiarism

First, I need to say that what I’m about to type bring me no joy whatsoever. What I’m about to post is going to disappoint a whole lot of people, and for that, I am truly, truly sorry.

Last week, AuraJenkins deleted her accounts from both AO3 and Tumblr, including her Hunger Games/YOI crossover fic, Smooth Predators. Based on things she said to not only me but to at least two other people, we were under the impression that she had done so because of personal issues (in general: health and family).

 

However, a few days ago I received some new information regarding a plagiarism accusation against Smooth Predators. Portions of the story are identical to a Hunger Games fic posted on fanfiction.net in 2010 and 2011 named Life Through Sea Green Eyes. The person who noticed the plagiarism first determined that Aura was not the author of the original fic, and then reported it to AO3 about two weeks ago. AO3’s policy is to request that fics with plagiarized content be edited to remove that content or deleted from the archive. We know Aura was contacted by AO3. Clearly, her reaction was to delete the story. (More under the cut)

ultrawantsomecandy  asked:

What's the point in all the hostility... I lost all respect for you after seeing how you chose to handle this.You encourage shares & reblgs but then report & heckle those who do. I'm not sure why your so concerned anyway, your work is plastered with your tags. notice how i didn't swear once in all this, its because im speaking calmly no hate.

“What’s the point in all the hostility” 

Because I am frustrated with the sheer disregard for my hard work and all the time and effort i put into things. 

I’ve had numerous copys of my work blatantly redrawn to the point that it drives me up the Wall. I am very angry and understandably so. 

16,975 SHARES, 4,900 likes, 519 comments. Meanwhile compared to my own posts on my facebook account: 

I average only 50 likes per image, and 

only 382 likes on my whole entire gallery. I fail to see how you don’t think this is an issue. Notice they did not even credit me for my work. I am angry. I am emotional. I should have handled the anon’s asks better. But at this point, it should be understood by people who merely TAKE the art they want and don’t reproduce any THAT ARTISTS LIKE TO BE CREDITED FOR THE WORK THEY DO. This is my passion. This is my life. I wanted to share these images with fandom friends and strangers to show them what I did. I want to make art my career. All of these things are like bits and pieces that go into a Portfolio. Do not take someone else’s things from their portfolio and put it onto your wall just to show someone else without crediting me. It should be made apparent that I deserve a little credit. After all, if my art is that good to be stolen and replicated over and over, shouldn’t I at least get credit for the originals???

“I lost all respect for you after seeing how you chose to handle this. “

I don’t care. I should have done a better job, sure. Does my anger and emotional response excuse my hostility? No. But does it make the anon’s ask less rude? He/She was being extremely rude and I have no time for it. As do I now have no time for a person like you who lost all respect for me. Honey, you didn’t respect me from the beginning. 

“ you encourage shares & reblgs but then report & heckle those who do “

-There is a difference between shares and reblogs and reposting. If you cannot learn the difference, then I feel bad for you. I encourage sharing and reblogging. NOT REPOSTING. The key difference is when I post on my own site, my own page and people sharing the post via the reblog button. That is not reposting. Reposting is when they download the image and save it to their own galleries or edit the image into their own way. It happens on a daily basis. As shown before, They often get more likes and reblogs and shares promoting Their galleries as opposed to mine. Maybe I’m an attention whore, fine. But the art itself that I Made is getting attention anyways. Might as well give the correct person the right amount of attention for making something so eye-grabbing. 

“I’m not sure why your so concerned anyway, your work is plastered with your tags. “

Do you know why those tags are there? It’s because people take and take and take my art and never give me the credit I should get. I put watermarks and my signature on EVERYTHING so if people do see the art, they can realize that the reposter is not the original content creator. HOWEVER, Most people ignore the watermarks and are even keen to DELETING the tags altogether. Just because my art is watermarked doesn’t make the reposting any less horrendous for me. Again, stated previously, their gallery continues to grow whilst mine doesn’t. 

You sound like a person who watches reaction videos on youtube. It’s the same principle at use. A content creator creates a video that goes viral or is eye-catching and awesome to watch. Then comes a REACTION CHANNEL who posts the whole entire video into theirs and just reacts to it. Stealing the views, the likes and comments from the original content creator. Do you honestly think people who post reaction videos leave the original link in the description every single time when they upload 10 videos a day? No they do not. And how much more do you want to bet people click on that original link after already watching the content in the reaction video? Not. very. many. 

It is a one and the same example of what happens when others post my art. They are the reaction channels of the art world. My watermark embedded does nothing to hinder them, and I would also like to mention it hasn’t given me extra attention. I don’t know many people who have found my channel or my galleries because of a reposter. It is not promotion. It is not flattering. It is blatant theft. 

“ notice how i didn’t swear once in all this, its because im speaking calmly no hate. “

Irrelevant. I could care less if you swore up and down my page. My points are still valid and they’re still going to be heard and spread. I may have a potty mouth, but at least I am in the right when you are in the wrong.
