First of all - I cant say how amazing it has been to watch deviantART act as a community over the course of the past week. Deviants from every corner of the world-wide web have joined in with their thoughts, suggestions, and concerns. It doesnt matter what their viewpoint is. The important thing in this case is that they are talking: open dialogue is healthy and it can invoke change.
