Fake Deviants

Journal Entry: Tue Nov 8, 2011, 7:41 AM
A teacher in New York was teaching her class about bullying and gave them the following exercise to perform. She had the children take out a piece of paper and told them to crumple it up, stomp on it and really mess it up, not to rip it. Then she had them unfold the paper, smooth it out and look at how scarred and dirty it was. She then told them to tell it they're sorry. Now, even though they said they were sorry and tried to fix the paper, she pointed out all the scars they left behind. And that those scars will never go away no matter how hard they tried to fix it. That is what happens when a child bullies another child, they may say they're sorry, but the scars are there forever. The looks on the faces of the children in the classroom told her the message hit home. Copy and paste this if you are against bullying.

No offence, but... There are some people who are getting too fake on dA. They only want posts, comments, or to see how many friends and page views they can get. So let's see who will actually re-post this. This is a test to see who's paying attention. This is a test to see how many people in my friends list actually pay attention to me. Copy and re-post in your own journal. Let's see who the real people are. Re-post this if you aren't a fake.
Don't reply... just copy and paste this in a new bulletin as "Fake Deviants."

I'm not the kind of person to repost such things, especially when it's used as a "test" to see if some of us are "fakes" or not, as you call them. It's very hypocritical to use this as a test for those who actually cares about your work, A.K.A giving you feedback/comments, page views, favorites or whatever defines it for you.

So no, I won't repost this. If I repost this just because I might feel that our relationship is threatened by your message, and that this would be SUFFICIENT to YOU in order to confirm if we really care about your dA activity, then I'd say that my repost, and maybe some others who feel obliged by such a (excuse my bluntness) ridiculous method, might as well be worthless.

However you take this message is up to you, but I'll still keep on watching your deviations.

AKSDJKAJ WHO WROTE THIS CHAIN AMG THIS IS LIKE THE THIRD TIME I SAW IT anyway, I do agree with the bullying part! It's good to spread awareness! :thanks:

that second paragraph makes me rage >:U
After claiming fake deviants "only want posts, comments, or to see how many friends and page views they can get."
They then say "So let's see who will actually re-post this. This is a test to see who's paying attention. This is a test to see how many people in my friends list actually pay attention to me."
Whoever wrote this a hypocrite and just as "fake" as the people they claim to be fake. You wouldn't need to test the friendship of people you trust. And commenting allows one to receive feedback to improve. Deviant Art is not only a place to share art but is also a social network. That's why there are chat rooms and forums. Everyone on dA shares a common interest in art. That is not "fake" at all. LOLRANT
