Last video, I'm not responsible if you lose your eyeballs when you see it.
Somebody don't rules well. He will get a banhammer for this. :iconbanhammerplz: :lmao:
FAQ #34: Are there any rules for the journals?
You may not post anything to your journal which would be considered pornography (whether it be image or textual), you may not post racist remarks or other hate speech or post links to websites which host materials which are prohibited under the deviantART terms of service.
Also, you may not use your journal to display unfiltered images which are considered to be Mature Content

Journals which are found to be violating these rules will be subject to removal by the deviantART staff without notice.

creepyjellyfish.deviantart.com…  <-- Stolen Pokemon animations ripped from the games, which are used as his own "free icons"   and as incentive for an absurdly huge and greedy donation drive of 23,600,000 points.

The thief claims that giving credit means he's not breaking any rule and has disabled comments to protect himself from any callout on his claim.

This user has a bunch of underage characters depicted in an inappropriate manner in their gallery, but this one definitely pisses me off the most.  This is just fucking pathetic!

l0rd-black.deviantart.com/gall… This deviant is an obvious pedophile. Characters in hyper tight clothing, BDSM situations, blatant nudity, sexual situations, disgusting clothing, you name it.
Report him and if at all possible, report him to the FBI.
More trash to 404.

Apparently, you can't age up underaged characters, but you can regress the age of a legal one... what the fuck?!
