Flickr has been treating everyone like crap by moderating or removing everybody's photos or deleting their accounts for any reason. I was treated like crap because I had many people blocking me from their Flickr citing that I was stealing their photos using the Flickr Toys Mosaic Maker without permission. Then many people continued to block me for dictating what I can and cannot post as Flickr has a strict no-uploading-any-nudity policy. Then I had five or six of my Flickr accounts terminated without warning.

They also want to moderate everything as I am not a pedrophile or that guy as I have a life and everyone knows that! Flickr can and will delete everyone's accounts for any reason and nobody is going to shell their 50 USD for a pro account.

Tip for consumers: Use 500px or Instagram. Don't use Flickr for it.

RedBubble

The Redbubble Content Team keeps removing everybody's stuff (including mine) due to copyright infringement. Redbubble has received complaints from The Pokémon Company, Hells Angels, and recently, Atari. Four months ago, Redbubble removed my Petal as Sakura Kasugano piece (picture shown), claiming that it infringes copyright on Redbubble. They refused to reinstate the content at issue as it has been over 14 business days as I counter-notified one of my works. Redbubble is in violation of 17 USC 512(g)(2)(c).

Here's this: Any characters we designed or created for webcomics, video games, or other media can wear Converse, Adidas, or Vans (with a few modifications). Atari (the company who owns the RollerCoaster Tycoon franchise), however, does not own any pixel art at all as pixel art is inspired by 80s/90s computer and video games.

The new CEO wants to keep the company in Australia as the company got sued by said companies (above). They should know that Capcom (the company who owns the Street Fighter IP) owns the Sakura Kasugano character/costume.

Tip for consumers: Find Redbubble alternatives without tagging anything that is copyrighted and/or trademarked.

DeviantArt

DeviantArt

DeviantArt has removed around 500 deviations a year for copyright infringement and other violations and has suspended/banned around 100 users a year. The site is full of fetishes (including vore, having their feet tickled, people in bondage, etc.), pornography (including child porn and exaggerated private parts), MLP shindig (for those unfamiliar, this is short for My Little Pony), and cyberbullies. Art theft has been rampant.

If you're an independent (or a professional) artist/graphic designer, DeviantArt doesn't want you. The DeviantArt staff and its volunteers (most of which who live outside of the states that a true online art community doesn't make) are complete nerfherders as they got more problems than the former Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos and the Trump administration and has been treating everyone like crap as they don't do their jobs right. There are alternatives to DeviantArt if you do not want to become a victim of having your stuff removed/relocated, or becoming a victim of having your DeviantArt account being suspended or permanently banned. Everyone knows that I have life as many content creators post their art and graphic designs on the internet as they need to stop saying I don't have life as they are liars and nerfherders who think they don't have jobs outside of the internet.

Plus all this "Don't thank me for the favs" and "Don't thank me for the llamas"? Wow. They are often offended and they are nothing but anti-social cyrils like Neku Sakuraba (from the video games The World Ends With You and KH3D: Dream Drop Distance). The DeviantArt staff and its volunteers are corrupt as the Bahamian nerfherder (as of 2015) is in charge of the "help desk". The admins really need to man up or end up getting arrested/incarcerated for months for corruption.

I'm not sure what shindig they use to abuse their powers with, but I'm pretty sure they'll have to pay for the damage they've already done. Use alternatives to DeviantArt as we hope someday that the staff gets arrested for corruption and the site be permanently closed by the FBI and the Interpol!

Tip for consumers: Use DeviantArt alternatives such as Blogger, WordPress, Behance, ArtStation, Instagram, Pixiv, and Ello. Don't use DeviantArt for it. Just save your stuff before deactivating your DeviantArt account.

Disqus

Disqus

The Disqus staff needs to get professional help, or, not spew their crap for it. There are around 750 mean-spirited site moderators all across Disqus (including conservatives, alt-right, and conspiracy theorists) as they still refused to deal with users or site moderators who cyberbully, harass, threaten, defame, or slander people.

This site needs to be permanently shut down by the FBI and the Interpol for investigation, as the online defamation attorneys and law firms who represent the individuals will ask the individual to seek legal action against Disqus as the commenting platform is going to lose a lot of customers as they will find alternatives to Disqus. Everybody has had enough of this crap as I hope the site will be permanently closed and have its staff and its product support team arrested/sentenced to six months in prison for corruption and failure to terminate any mean-spirited users/moderators.

Update 10/03/2018: I hope Zeta Global (the parent company) also faces legal action from the said online defamation attorneys and law firms.

Tip for consumers: Use Disqus alternatives, such as wpDiscuz and Spot.IM, or use the comment system included in your WordPress themes
