I will begin by thanking all of you again for your support, comments and kind words, the are greatly appreciated by myself and the models.
Having had a number of trouble free months this morning I open up to find a message from the powers that be telling me that an image has been placed in storage due to the model appearing to be of a doubtful age.
I have to say now that the other images of this model were not questioned and that some of them had been on DA for 2 years. I am not one as you know for using bad language in my Journals but at this point I have to say "What the Fuck is Going On". It is possible to upload and completely without question a certain genre of images where the subject material is totally questionable regarding age and on occasions blatantly obvious that they are underage, without question, yet they question the age validity of a 30 year old.
Shortly before Christmas I had in my message box a number of notifications that images had been removed due to the supposed content, a high proportion of them contained no nudity at all and had been on the site for a period in excess of 12 moths . I feel that the inconsistent manner in which decisions are made is intolerable and can, with a number of artists on here, reach vendetta proportions. This attitude has led to many artists leaving the site which is a tragedy as their art will be greatly missed. Many of the artists on DA also have grave concerns about the amount of art theft that take place with people joining for a day, downloading 1000's of images and then disappearing into the night with a bundle of stolen art work on their back and there seems to be no action taken to stop it. There has to be an answer to all of the problems associated with DA but they seem to be unimportant and at this point I see no chance of things changing, which is unfortunate.
My apologies for having a grumble but as many of you are aware it is not the first time a situation like this has arisen.
Best regards to all of you.
