Former mod Lotus of Deviantartwhy here.
If you’re wondering what happened, and where we went, the blog was terminated.
We had a lot of fun with it. I’m sad that it’s gone. We built up this huge following of about 12,000 people and 27,000 posts, Many of our followers were very interactive with us. Hundreds of submissions a week.
Reveling in the silly shitstorms was a blast.
We were sniped by the tumblr police for “improper redistribution” or however it was worded in the email I received.
Meaning, we posted things unsourced. But having a blog like that is treading on thin ice a bit. Yes, we bended the rules a bit, but had we linked to the artists, at least some of those 12,000 would have followed those links to harass them. We did what we could to avoid that by censoring names and leaving out links.
What irritates me the most, isn’t even that our 4 years are gone, but that whatever pissbaby reported, they’re going to see this as a huge victory. kindlyfuckoffwiththatshitman
If I even attempt to remake the blog, under this account and email, I will be terminated immediately and irreversibly. I’d rather that not happen.
I may create a different blog to fill that void. But the subject matter will probably be different;
