I'm actually very glad that you choose to comment back and that you understand how I felt about it. I got a bit upset when I felt like it was sort of a personal attack in some way, but I do understand what you're coming from and free speech is also important.

Thanks for reconsidering and for letting me know you appreciate my commission :)

I'm very sorry to you exclusively. I know that this is no reason to act against your very cute pic, btw, but there are things that just can't be left unsaid. And it has to do with what happened in this image and other people should be aware of this thing so it couldn't be said over dm's either. If anything, you convinced me I should just upvote the pic since I liked it. I'm just sorry I had to leave a comment like this in here.

You know that with some things, especially prejudice and injustice, raising awareness is way too much important.

So if I understand correctly you basically say that because you don't agree on a comment a moderator makes on a random picture that even though you don't have anything against the picture, you still decide to both downvote it and also feel the need to mention that in the comments?

I'm sorry but that is both very pathetic and childish. If you don't have anything nice to say then just tell the said person who made the comment via personal message and don't make yourself look like a dick. Because that is very rude and uncalled for.

What… the fuck… I probably should be quiet about this so don't also get banned but how many assumptions did I just read there? And one of them even led to a ban too? I wonder what's the general ballpark that derpi's mod team has for controlling what people can and cannot like. What defines as systematic downvoting? Downvoting 3 or more pics with a theme in common? This is honestly disturbing and disconcerting to read. I'm just scared about suddenly waking up and out of nowhere the Derpi staff has seemed my account as out of line. Or will just delete my comment and forget I exist.

I know the artist has nothing to do with this and I honestly have nothing against the image, but just reading this mod judging people unjustly like this makes me unable to leave without downvoting… Jesus Christ wtf is this system of invasion of privacy and hasty judgement?

There's nothing wrong, it's just a couple of handfuls of people who don't like people liking things they don't like.

In brief, with about a hundred thousand active users each month, we have a several users who do not like images related to Pride, or that have Pride Flags, or that have intersex characters, or show anything other than what they consider to be straight relationships. We also have a lot of people who feel equally strongly that we should not allow original characters on the site, and who do not believe that "Your Character Here" images should be allowed on this site, and who are triggered by images tagged "futa" or "hug".

I wish I was making that up, but that's what I found when I looked through the votes.

I've looked through the downvotes and did find some systematic downvoting, and those people have been banned. But the rest just seem to be the "usual noise" images attract with a mix of people offended by their being OCs, and people who are triggered by intersex characters, futas, etc, etc.

And, while I can't expose any confidential information, it's not unusual for downvotes to be made by people who are fans of an artist — we often find that people who downvote one work by an artist also favorite other images by the same artists. Sometimes your most ardent fans can be the most critical …

If you would like to talk about it more, please feel free to PM me. But I think you shouldn't be concerned. We just have a couple of people who have only been on the site a couple of weeks and still think that "taking a stand" against people liking things they don't like is somehow noble. When school starts in the fall they will probably be gone again.
