What?

Journal Entry: Thu Nov 8, 2012, 2:47 PM
What's going on?

What's going on that all the lemons are getting deleted?

Oh. A deviant reporting them.

That's depressing to see all the emotions go.

I just want to spread a word that it's no good to report someone's hard work. I'm not trying to bad mouth anyone, but - I mean, maybe it's time to move on with your life instead of reporting deviations for pornographic content.

People actually put their thoughts into their work, and they're full of feelings from deep down.

And I'm sure people don't need pressure on their work that they did out of fun, requests or even commissions.

So yeah. And guys, don't quit because of this.

This is crazy business that we need to deal with; not to run away from.

Maybe we should face this deviant with some faith and bravery, no? :iconhappychinaplz:

I agree.

People work hard on their literature. I'm attached to what I write and I enjoy it when people like it. It makes me sad if someone bashes it or reports it for a silly reason just for attention or out of butthurt. Now, that's really just a sad story and hopefully the staff can be aware of people who know the rules and follow it have their work labeled as a rule-breaker. It's different if someone doesn't label it or it's really explicit content such as a graphic preview picture or stolen art.

The other thing: Lemons are part of writers who enjoy writing about it. It's as much as someone loves to draw or write about their favorite things. I read enough to know lemons can be part of human nature. People like those kinds of things and it's part of what makes us people and human - heck, it's how a lot of people are created born unless they are from a grow-a-child tube where you add water. I personally do not write it, but it seems like something not easy to pull off while keeping it realistic than from a stereotypical or bad point of view. The countries may not seem human, but they take human forms. They laugh, cry, smile, and are filled with emotions like the reader him/herself.

I hope it gets corrected. It's not the first time I heard of people with childish attitudes which leaves to a lot of unhappy people including myself.

I agree completely with what you're saying.

Whatever a writer writes is of his/her hobby or profession and I believe we should respect them and their feelings when they write it down.

No one should report them and abuse that reporting power like the person is doing right now. As our lemons do have mature ratings, I don't see the reason. And copyrighting? We do have author's name in the description.

I believe you about the mature ratings and copyright. It's good to know those who are willing to follow the rules, but still a shame the person still attacks.

I realized something. If they are being deleted for being pornographic literature... how is that wrong when DA has a category when you are submitting labeled EROTIC STORIES. If it wasnt allowed you wouldnt be able to submit it in a category labeled for it!

HillsOfSilence Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
Tada... I think it's okay as long as you have a mature rating.

I mean - if you're being reported for pornographic literature without a mature rating, then it's okay. But many people actually put a mature rating on it.

:icontailowb:
Tailowb Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2012
Yeah... but thats the point. They did have the mature rating and got it taken off. I wish there was a process of CHECKING what people are reporting and it want just one report that made a deviantation get blocked...

rawr. silly deviant doesn't understand the hard work that goes into citrusy goodness. Honestly, I can't write a decent lemon even though I can write other things just fine. So I definitely respect the work that goes into producing the smexy works that I love... people/person needs to stop reporting shisse.

and by the way

sauerkraut
potatoes
sausage

were all in my dinner tonight.

I know most people are reposting their lemons if they get taken down...and I'm actually going to start on a story idea I got with a random generator that features a FinlandxReader lemon. (Not sure if it'll be consentual yet. XD *shot*) Now I'm gonna go stalk down your Sweden one and read it! >:D

I never wrote lemons, love reading them. Seeing them deleted will get me HIGHLY upset. I saved them on my phone's browser favorites to read later. If any and I mean ANY CanadaxReader lemons are deleted, then I'm gonna be so PISSED I'm gonna go and grab Russia with his pipe, Hong Kong with his Fireworks, and England with his magic or something and EFF HIM UP! He's reporting mostly for cover images that don't belong to us. He's attacking demotovationals as well! I WILL NOT TAKE THAT AT ALL! This guy should be BANNED!
