Dark secrets that may never be revealed ?

Dear Photomanipulators - UPDATEThis message is addressed to all photomanipulators on DeviantArt.Dear Photomanipulators - UPDATE by CD-STOCK
We, Stock Providers
are fed up with everyone who do not respect our rules.
We are sick and tired of photomanipulators
who do not credit us under their artwork nor notify of our stock use.
When we politely ask you for credit please do not be abusive
- it's immature and unpleasant and after all we ARE entitled to ask.
By DA Rules if we ask for credit in return for free use of our work
(stock photo, texture, png/cutout, premade background etc.)
then you must do it or we are entitled to ask for your art to be taken down.
This also applied to Premiums
