Thief who says that he uploads his stolen art for a "reason" and because the original artist didn't say "Please do not steal." Is very rude to those who confront him about it as well.

This guy post stolen pics from other artists without any permission..
The list is very long but you could use "who stole my pictures" from Firefox add-ins.

Hi there! Someone has been uploading neopets avatars. You can find the originals here:
www.neopets.com/~the_pet_eater
The user luvmypetz re-uploaded some, and even though I've told her about it, she hasn't replied or done  anything about it (and she's been on). So, I'm hoping you guys can help out! Thanks :)

I think I found an art thief last night. It's basically this guy taking screen shots of female characters from various fandoms (Disney, Naruto, Digimon, DBZ) and makes them bald for the purpose of people getting a hard on. There is also some other work that isn't screenshotted, but looks traced. 

I want to speak up about it, but people are defensive about their fetishes. I also don't want to be seen as some femenazi sjw. Advice?
