I've made great friends through dA, seen and read a lot of truly spectacular works, and have gotten more recognition for my stuff than by any other means.
Now that dA has begun hijacking the COMMENTS people leave by inserting advertising hyperlinks based on keywords? Not worth it. Just not worth it anymore. Want proof or details? See my latest and final posted deviation aptly entitled 'Fin.'
I'd prefer to remain anonymous than become famous by tap dancing inside a box of Lucky Strikes.
Many apologies to the friends I'll miss seeing here. When dA starts adding hyperlinks in people's COMMENTS to sites which are flagged as DANGEROUS by McAfee security software, oh, it is just SO over.
YOU SEE???!!!??? SEE RIGHT THERE???
You idiots, dA. It took a while, but someone finally saw fit to give you enough rope to hang yourselves with it, and you did.
It's been a slice.
