So far, and to my knowledge, I have been blocked by two people on dA.
This is puzzling to me. From that (thankfully limited) experience, it is as if the "block" feature is mostly used by people who misuse the site and expect everything to go their way, without being able to accept that they are objectively wrong.
First one, months or years ago, I do not remember, was a guy who submits his Wolverine or whichever other overrated Marvel character to the New Mutants group. A group where any sane and/or intelligent person realizes only New Mutants-related works should be submitted. It was not only one pic, but a few. None of them had anything to do with New Mutants.
I go to one of the deviations, expecting this to be an honest mistake (after which I would inform the person of it and that's that), and notice said deviation is part of a lot of (and I mean MANY) groups. Only a few of them related to the picture.
So I inform him he must not continue to submit non-NM pics to the group (less politely than I would have if he had not been so cynically submitting to all the groups he could find). After that, I am blocked by him.
Today, I replied to this post:comments.deviantart.com/1/4186…
So... This came up when I searched 'dragon quest v yaoi' and... I'm confused.... Is there something I'm not understanding? If you meant it to be romantic then good, I think this ship needs more shippers. But I don't... Think that this qualifies?
You know, "yaoi" is not necessarily "ettchi".
With the use of this term in our Western culture, we could say yaoi stories can be done without as much as a kiss.
Even in stories with stronger and more graphic ties to "yaoi" (what the term would most likely be used for in Japan), most of the content is non-graphic relationships, with only a few pages having something more.
*sigh* 2 things.
1. I wasn't saying that it didn't BELONG in the yaoi category. I said I wasn't certain and by the fucking way a friend has clarified for me that technically, this picture, if it's meant to be so would be shounen ai so fuck off with your high-and-mighty attitude.
2. I don't fucking know what ettchi even is so shut up.
I'm sorry but just... I was curious okay. And then you come in here assuming I meant ettchi whatever the fuck that means. No. Fuck you. I use yaoi as a general term for most of my fictional gay couples, or I did before a friend corrected me. Shut up okay?
And I am blocked. Apparently, sighing did not help her. What set her off? The "you know" at the start? I have been playing too much Final Fantasy X/X-2, you know? I thought it was a common phrase, you know? Nothing offensive in it, you know?
I am not in the mood to be understanding when such a childish display is sent my way and then the door is shut down on my face. I am verily in the mood of making fun of it (yes, childishly, even). I am thankful I can spend time online without reacting like her. I am thankful, too, that I can spend time online without acting like I am actin at the moment without someone else giving me material.
This is what I would have replied if she had not blocked me. Not nice, but absolutely less than that comment from her deserved:
Following comment goes for coopkat53 from that comment above, who really would be delighted to read it. And yes, I may have better things to do, but anything to educate a lesser being.
Ettchi -> H -> Hentai. Now you know.
Now I am shutting up. Any estimation on when I can start talking in my own gallery again? Or should I just stay silent for eternity? I guess I could try my best to accomodate you. Ah, and speaking of that...
About you and me fucking (something you seem to really want/need, seeing as how many times you brought it up in a single post), when would be the best time? We can arrange something, I guess.
I see in yuor profile (from which I am blocked, thank you) that you consider yourself crazy (not mental hospital crazy, yet). I wonder why.
That's all for now.
Please share your experience if you have had an encounter with a block-button-click-happy person before. What did they do before blocking you? Were they the people actually throwing insults right and left? Were you surprised they blocked you?
