PLEASE WHOEVER READS THIS SIGNAL BOOST THIS!!!
This tumblr user will not listen to us about how important it is to source people’s artwork!! I’ve already reported this person with this message:
Someone with the URL “mutilatedman” has made countless posts degrading artists on the internet who want their art to be sourced back to where it was originally uploaded. Regardless of it being fanwork, there has been a huge dilemma with pixiv users who either have their art work stolen, edited, and posted on countless sites without their permission. Sourcing the original content is important when posting art from pixiv, if not, many of these artists will feel discouraged to continue uploading their work onto their site. As a matter in fact, countless of them have either set the work on private or deleted their accounts due to the lack of attention they are actually receiving. Tumblr user mutilatedman’s behavior upon this situation is unacceptable and could even get in a lot of trouble over this. These are the links and screenshots for evidence.
leads to this
Please do something about this immediately, we the artists and art appreciators are very concerned with people like this; It is certainly most intolerable.
If it’s not too much to ask, I want as many of you as possible to to let the staff know about this!!! Unsourced artwork has been a huge problem for a while but I’ve never seen someone this absolutely disgusting who would treat other artists this way! If they won’t learn their lesson, then it’s time to actually do something about this!
