I opened this complaint about antideviantart in regards to his journal obviously being made for spamming (which is against the TOS). If you have anything to add to the complaint, feel free to.

(URL removed)

Update: Nothing could be done with this report because I had shared the URL to it. Until it's taken care of, they said, I wouldn't be allowed to share the URL with anyone if I wanted it taken care of by them.

So I had to open a new report with LJ Abuse. I included the additional links to spam that someone provided on that page. If you have anymore that you want included in the report, please let me know and I'll do it so that everything is included.

I am not reporting antideviantart because of putting 508 friends on his friends list within a matter of hours of being on LJ. I'm reporting him for spamming, which is against LJ's TOS. The only thing I can do is make LJ aware of it, and they'll make the decision about what will be done, even if they choose to do nothing.
Artist's beware has moved!
Do NOT repost your old bewares. They are being archived.

That's just weak. Here were are- A community. A community that gave you fair warning, in a journal called "Artists Beware"

I need not expain anything.
Take your chances with DA, but if you ask me, you're totaly out of line. Why? Because no artist need "be beware" of me. Matter of fact, I've put 2k into a hosting site.

Give you the URL? I'm sorry, I don't see what good can come from it.

You're spamming, that's against LJ TOS. If they decide it isn't spamming, then you're in the clear. Until then, I'm not convinced, because I've heard you've done the same thing in other people's journals, and until LJ staff say something about the report, you're no more than a pest in my mind.

I have an accont on DA, and I know the ins and outs pretty well as a user. I would consider myself knowledgeable enough to figure out that you must've gotten into heat at DA, they probably canceled your account, and now you're backfiring by spamming (or "warning", which you seem to prefer) about DA's policies and what "they're planning on doing in the future".

Oh, I agree wholeheartedly...
...he has a right to his opinion... what he doesn't have a right to do is staple it to everyone's forehead- something he feels he needs to to to be heard and believed, evidently.

I made a report about him myself, not only for the spamming but also for threatening me physically... apparently he's also similarly threatened a DA staff member in the past, as I'm just learning now...

...come to think of it, as I'm learning now no one there has a particularly good opinion of him at DA... big surprise.

Oh, while we're at it, have you seen his Yahoo group? Apparently 'quantity' equals 'quality' with this guy. If his message is so righteous, I wonder why he has to post it in every corner of the internet?

Like I said, he can have his opinion, supported or not. What cheeses me off it he's pissing on everyone's doorstep with his own personal vendetta, and that's wrong.

Not a problem. I'll post the message LJ Abuse sends to me about the report I opened in a later entry.

The report was closed because I shared the URL with others, but I copied and pasted the links to those entries in the new report I made, so they definitely helped.

They'll provide further proof of spam, however, the most I think they're going to do is send him an email telling him to remove the entries or his account will be suspended. But there will also be a warning in there that if he does it again, his account will be suspended without notice.

I just get around to the outcasts last!

Thanks for the effort, all involved...
...see, we can make a difference. :)

I feel all squeaky clean now. Don't you? :D

Re: Thanks for the effort, all involved...
Oh I know already... morons are rather like herpes in that respect, they just keep on turning up.

I have noticed that they haven't as far as I know, spammed any artist groups I've kept track of, although they did break their previous record for force-friending people... 708 now, evidently.

Meh, so they're back, hardly dampens the previous victory, if you ask me. It'll be only a matter of time before they do something else monumentally stupid enough to get that jounral deleted...and then they'll be back again, and on and on.

I just see so far that for all the 'shit' they were going to 'expose slowly over time', all they've managed to do is expose themselves... as the total jackasses they are.

That's heartening, anyway. :)

I'm sure he'll wind up getting his new journal suspended as well.

Re: Thanks for the effort, all involved...
Unlike you idiots that don't learn, and let knowledge go to waste in a community called "Artists beware"- Of whom are to lazt to use google to find out that deviantart is a scam, and trying to make me qualify my statements- I learn.

And if it wasn't for that elfwood jivin' pussy fucker that complained about me "threatening his life" my other journal would still be here.

Thank you very much.
I could be a rat just like you some day.

Re: Thanks for the effort, all involved...
Thanks. You can "learn" all you want to in the world you're living in, but I'm going to stay on this planet rather than make that big of a move. Have a nice life.

Re: Thanks for the effort, all involved...
What knowledge? Your post was a waste of time from the start. Nothing but you bitching and moaning 'cause you been banned...

...cry me a river.

Just letting you know.
