Those people again! + doctor + ZOO PHOTOS!

Journal Entry: Fri Jun 29, 2012, 11:57 AM


So many things to say today, I need to make it shorter :XD:

At first, THANK YOU for support, people, really!
I went to the doctor on Wednesday, although I already felt better. The doctor said I probably really have salmonellosis and I am already treated for it. Smoked salmon is probably to blame - and I ate it, because I wanted to be healthy :XD:
It is not a big deal, in fact I already feel completely healthy :aww: I have no pain or stomach problems at all. I am just on a diet (I need to drink a lot of coke, mineral water, three litres of drinks in general. And I need to eat over salted rice) and take some pills. But I am ok, just a bit tired. I was warned to not underestimate this illness, so I am a good girl and I stay at home. I just encouraged myself to try to eat some soup and chicken meat - nothing bad happen, so I think I am just fine :D
I was probably lucky - it was likely some weak type of salmonellosis and moreover it was even weaker illness in my case. So great!

Honestly, I was surprised to see you so worried. But the thruth is, that I also thought that getting salmonellosis means a need to get into isolation in a hospital and to get a drip-feed. Fortunately, it was not my case at all. Thanks for all encouraging messages once more :hug:

I must say that when I post something about people on dA, I am often angry and I mention problems - art-thieves, rude people, animal cruelty, porn or spammers. But when I was browsing dA, I found this => - I had to say it really PLEASED me! :aww: it really made me happy :D thank you :aww:

But of course, I need to mention those problems too :XD:
Nowadays I meet many people who love to post comments under somehow popular deviations - just to announce their own galleries! And believe me, I do not mean those ,,Hi Woxys, I like this photo. Please, can you have a look at my art too?". If somebody asks this question, I am even WILLING to go and really have a look and even leave a nice comment.
But people, who need just ,,LINK" as a link to their gallery, are selfish bastards. If you check their activity, you can see they post the SAME comment under deviations of MANY people. They just spam, posting many comments a minute, using art of another people as their own platform.
I usually post some angry answer and just mark their comment as a spam, no big deal.

But there is a type of a spamming comment I REALLY totally hate.
It is a spamming comment, which pretends to be real comment.
Something like:

,,Omg, what a great image!
I do 3D art, I have a dA account here - LINK. I also have my facebook account HERE. Visit me, I love to welcome another people!"

When you check activity of such guy, you can see, that he/she posts the SAME comment everywhere - even that ,,omg, what a great image!" part.
Which means: not only this person is spamming. It is also making an idiot from you.

Yesterday I met a guy, who did exactly that.
He posted many comments like this.
I was shocked, because such spamming is usually made by teenagers.
But that guy was 26 years old!!!!
I posted a comment, saying that his behavior is not acceptable. And that if he was really that great artist as he thinks, he would not have to spam to get attention :P
He just blocked me and continued, this time focusing on young girls, posting more and more spam.

I got angry, because I really hate people who use art of another people for their own self-promotion.
So I contacted dA through help desk, asking them to NOT ban him, but to gave him official warning.
dA was pretty fast!
It took only few hours, but they temporary blocked his account, so he might return soon.
I hope the lesson was learned.

Spammers, do not use art of another people to advertise yourself! :P

I'm happy that you are well again. I wasn't worried you were going to die though but I know it can turn serious so I'm glad you went to the doctors just to be sure :hug:

DA fans will probably donate so you can buy an isolation bubble to live in.
No more home bound

Yay, I'm glad to hear that you feel better :D :huggle:

I know what you mean. It's really annoying. It's happened to me a lots of times to, also creapy (young mostly) guys who's commenting your art with phrases like: Oh very nice artwork, sweetheart. If you'd like to see mine, please check out my gallery and page, lovely.
Thank's for making a journal including this. I hope it opened the minds of a few people who does this (if they're reading ofc).

Well as I said I'm glad to hear you're feeling better (: Take care now! Cheers!^^
