To expect everyone to only speak here when they have something nice to say won't fly. If you're afraid of critical feedback then maybe this isn't the right forum to start a thread on. Every artist has a right to a thread, but not every artist should expect that thread to be full of rainbows and puppy dogs. With art comes critique, both positive and negative. You can't censor out the negative because it might hurt someones feelings, or more likely because it does't serve someones agenda which is what appears to be happening here. It's really shameful that anyone would defend censoring posts. I read the entire thread before it was censored. None of the deleted posts were derogatory. They did poke fun but they were certainly not derogatory.
Sorry CHR1S I tried to get back on yesterday to respond to this but the site was a bit dead.

The image I posted of Thumper from Bambi was just an attempt to lighten the mood. It wasn't forum policy. I didn't mean to imply that people can't express their like or dislike of an artists work.

It was more that I wanted to encourage people to think first then post. There's a very nasty attitude in this place sometimes that makes it unpleasant for new members and especially artists. I've talked to a lot of artists over the last year and many of them won't come near the place which is a massive shame. There is also a culture of people piling in to a topic for a bit of sport at the expense of the poster or the artist. Again not a great thing for the community. If people have a problem with a member they can use the Foe function. If they feel the member is committing some kind of wrong that should be dealt with by the staff they can message direct. Vigilantism never pays off in this place.

You no longer get the title of CMO. Your title is now CPO.

Chief Propaganda Officer

Learn about yourself..

Also, learn about celebrity advertising while you are at it. If you post one more picture of somebody who is well known, in your effort to convey their supposed deep love and support for this artist, I am going to throw up in my mouth. Shameless.

Propaganda Basics
Propaganda is communication that promotes a particular idea or way of thinking. Its message can include facts or deception; in either case, its intent is to persuade the audience to buy in to the message-sender's point of view.

I don't like what somebody said. So I am going to post more of the same.

I am 7 years old.

This is just painful. I'm out.

Also, babbs, why would you post gazillion photos of the same fudge? Literally the same image. Post a pic or two and that is it. These are the redundancies that should be moderated, IMO, and not the luls. Babbs is a troll and I believe the reason he creates these threads are for the sole purpose - luls!

Fully support the quote above my post. I already suggested it once or twice before too :pint:

No worries inkling. I was a little ticked off yesterday as one of my comments was deleted for no reason. My comment asked if someone was censoring the thread and it was immediately deleted....which suggested to me that they didn't want people aware that the thread was being edited/censored. Just rubbed me the wrong way that a thread that seems so overloaded with propaganda and promotion for what I consider to be unoriginal and contrived art. When the posts were being deleted it appeared as if someone trying to manipulate the general opinion of how people really feel about the art.

Babbs, can you please hype it up here and other communities you are part of? Thanks!
