They said:

Uninterested in my art being hosted on a site with a userbase that appreciates and finds the same Nazi joke funny after 10+ years of repeating it. Also disgusted with the overwhelming support of foalcon. Would prefer not to be involved at all.

ok this is lit
You're probably right. My point is that they will probably continue to make art elsewhere, while also saying that they quit art/the fandom every once in a while. However, I've tired of Parlay's shenanigans long ago, plus anyone who does a takedown on Derpi isn't deserving of my respect, so they can fuck right off and the world would be better for it. I unfollowed a few months ago.

Your comparison falls flat. The dynamics of major corporations selling you streaming and volunteer-run boorus hosting art for free are quite different beyond both being online content. I already do save a fair amount of the art that I like in case an artist or site goes dark. It's not really pirating if all (or at least most) of their content is available for free.
