.....the ammount of Members on d/a who have sent me notes is good BUT 'horrifying' to learn what does go on here!
Of course, I do know these things happen, BUT not to the extent I am hearing now.

1. If members feel the NEED to completely demolish other members lives by...............continuous HATE comments. GO somewhere else or learn to 'tolerate' people who may be different from you.

2. Artist's are people who are 'sensitive' to pain and misunderstanding.  This is an "artist's website" NOT a place to cause more by demoralising/insensitive remarks /downright stupidity OR complete 'non-caring.'

3. SO many recent 'departures' (maybe more coming up soon) have happened because some of us don't want/cannot speak up.
This I understand.

4. SO many very kind/loving people........I knew! GONE.

ALL this has 'happened' to me too. Luckily I have a 'strong' sense of self and will NOT just 'sit back'! ANY 'offensive' language I will REPORT to d/a and I hope others do too.

All anger is justified BUT not HATE.  Try to 'think' before you say something to anyone wherever you are.

ONCE more I see our Earth as a place for different races to come together NOT fighting between our selves we are running 'out of time!'

To everyone who entrusted me with your e-mails. They are safe. Thank you. I will NOT let you down.

:love: :peace:

I have become wary of those people who have no artwork in their accounts. I'm not attempting to generalize in anyway because I'm sure that there are some people who just enjoy looking at other peoples work, and feel, (probably unjustly) that they have nothing to offer.

However, I have spoken to a couple of people on here who have been bullied, who have reported the bullying and those people have been banned. They just open another account and keep on bullying and harassing that person, and others I'm sure! I checked a few out and none of them had any art in their galleries.

I have no idea why these people are here. They must be miserable souls who have no joy in their lives so they want to make other people miserable and take it out on them.

What they could think about is if they change their attitudes they might change their lives!!!!

Yes................I am 'wary' of this too. I have met several people on here who really do like looking at art.

This is so true and still try to pursue them but it gets very daunting.

Last sentence is so true.

To actually hate someone takes up a lot of energy.  There are plenty of people that I have met that I really didn't like or respect but I would never try to ruin their lives.  I think it is a way of blaming someone else for your misfortunes or a lack of self esteem.

wow. I had no idea that this kind of thing was going on. cyber bullying is something we think we need to train only the young people about, but maybe we adults need to learn about it too. Such a shame, but it seems to be an extension of real life, only it's easier here because of the perceived anonymity. Such a sad commentary on the state of our society today. :no:

Yes, people think that they can hide behind them, but like that awful clown stuff that has been happening, it will all eventually be exposed. And really, it just exposes what kind of people they are inside anyway, if this it what it takes for them to be able to truly "express themselves". Why humanity is so hellbent on hurting each other is beyond my comprehension. Hang in there, Jenny!

Bully's who can express what they wish....yes just sad individuals!

I think all this is a 'direct' result of Donald Trump and the politicians everywhere who speak against 'immigrants?'

I LIVE on one Earth with my fellow humans........Love

I am doing OK......just always hoping for a better understanding of all this SHIT.

Hence all this hype about "inquiry based" learning that is all the rage. While I certainly don't believe in rote learning, I also firmly believe that a good teacher will get the best of his/her students. There is such a serious and scary difference in the level of teaching. because wages are so low who wants to go into teaching as a career and profession these days? Yet teachers are the people who form the future generation and who children spend more of their day with than their own parents a lot of the time.

SO true.  I still remember my best teachersNod
I saw figures/charts of how many Teachers can afford to buy a house in England.............2%
It has always seemed so disgusting that teachers/nurses/care givers receive such bad pay.  All are in jobs where risks are great, kindness and caring paramount and endless testing and problems.No, I disagree!

Wow! I'm genuinely surprised that there could be a big problem with hateful comments/ harassment on DA...  I thought it was a pretty safe website...
Unfortunately, having had to send reports/complaints about to the DA staff before about some important issues myself, I know how slow/ ineffective it can be (very slow feedback from the staff/ little action done to change things) ~~ and that's really a shame cuz it would really help things along!!
At any rate, it's awesome that you're helping! :hug: :hug:

I did too except for some very 'inane' nasty comments and supporting friends who have been 'harassed'

Because of all the 'hate full' news nowadays......it seems that some people can spend their days 'hurting' others!  I reall believe that a LOT of narcisstic/bully' politicians have begun something which is becoming very scary?

I completely agree about d/a being very slow to respond BUT I always use the 'blocked' messages box......this seems to work for me.

Any one can help Lisa..........:love: and :hug:'sss
Thanks for this thoughtful and honest comment.

True. People are easily influenced/swayed by mass opinions (often from politicians)... 
I hope the people spreading hate as a result will realise how futile their actions are... But that's wishful thinking. :/

Yes, anyone can help! :) If I ever come across anything on this site, I'll make sure to block/signal it.

The world is a wonderful place because of the diversity in everything - we should cherish that and spread love.

Very true.............luckily I did NOT come on d/a as a 'young' vulerable woman/person.

Excellent 'assessment' of what happens on these sites. Yes............even though I am older I have wanted sometimes to just go........several times. IF it hadn't been for truly kind people I would NOT be here today.

I did NOT know this about being able to still 'stalk' behind one's backNo, I disagree!

My own feeling is: Because of the Internet..........people who had 'no voice' use the 'net' to do what they cannot do in ordinary life! I am still convinced their are MORE people in this World who do care but they are being 'drowned out' by cowards/bullys.

Oh the 'victims.No, I disagree! '  I feeeeeeel.

Problem is.....we do NOT see these 'hateful' people?

Thank you Alice for this excellent comment.

We are ALL 'naiive' at some point. We can't possibly know that things will happen which are beyond our imaginings.
D/a was my first internet experience too.

I have a 'facebook' page BUT rarely go there!

Yes we do.

So much :love: and :peace:
