venomstrikerdecetico.deviantar…

she's hiding the stolen images in her gallery. If you click her gallery, you don't find them. Click all' and prepare yourself for a whole load of stolen images from online. 
venomstrikerdecetico.deviantar…

We've told her time and time again, all her friends are telling us the same thing, they're saying we should've told her to take them down quietly, she hasn't listened. 

She's even threatened to use someone's bases, and she said and I quote 'You can't stop me.'

I've got a whole heap of evidence against the user, and so far DA staff have done nothing about me.

Please assist us in stopping art thieves on Deviantart and making the website a safe place again to share art, not put up with art thieves.

Even worse, this DA user is UNDERAGE, she joined when she was 11, and she's not 13 yet, the DA minimum age. 

Everything you'll find here:  Every Piece of Evidence (journal proofs added)TFG1001 PRESENTS A JOURNAL WITH EVERY PIECE OF EVIDENCE AGAINST VENOM TO BRING IT ALL TOGETHER TO HAVE HER REPORTED. This will be passed onto a member of staff shortly. TFG1001 is constantly updating this journal with new evidence, the link to this journal has now been sent to DA staff.

UPDATE 27/02/2015
I came across something that absolutely disturbed me entirely...

For all of you that don't know what the point is, the word 'incest' is mentioned.
Definition:
-sexual relations between people classed as being too closely related to marry each other.
-the crime of having sexual intercourse with a parent, child, sibling, or grandchild.

I can confirm, yes the conversation stopped after he said THAT, but I digged deeper, and discovered more information reguarding this matter.
This conversation was 23rd December 2014, this user was reported on a Blog, making harrassment comments and stalking another DA

Proof she's underage, proof she doesn't credit base users, proof she has stolen artwork from online, she has loads of 'horse images' that she claims are hers, and the most disgusting thing she has done recently, she's claiming she's PREGNANT!! Yet we have facebook message proof from a user she lied to, this user's own MOTHER has
