Dammit!!

Is it such a big deal if I use your freakin' icons??? Is it really?? I mean.... I didn't say they were mine... I just used them. So I forget to credit now and then. Its because I just kinda surf and pic up stuff. And then later, when I'm going through my 'My Documents' folder, I throw it on there. I do it all the time. Who doesn't??

Perhaps this is the backlash I get for making the big stink about my character being stolen from me?? I see this differenly though. I've made a few icons before and I don't have the affinity and closeness to them that I have to the icons. Take them! Take them all and credit if you feel like it! Just don't say they're yours. When you say its yours, made by you and only you, I get mad. I never said the Polaris icons I'm using were made by me. I never even insinuated that fact. But someone had to have a hissy bout it and now I'm stuck having to find new sets of icons. Luckily, I made most of them myself and can leave those alone. -raises her hand- And I promise you... i made these myself from comic pages that people uploaded to the net. There's not law against editing images like that. Plus I didn't steal the page from you, i just stole a 100x100 square of it for myself.

And as i said before... I NEVER CLAIMED THEM AS MY OWN!!!! I just borrowed them for my journal. AN RP JOURNAL, mind you, and it wasn't as if there aren't 800000000000 people playing that same character. How do you know that I didn't get it from them..? And if they didn't credit, then who am I suppose to credit??

Okay... I feel better. I apologize to all the artistic types who think that icon 'stealing' is wrong. I try to credit. Really i do. Sometimes it just slips my mind when I get excited about a new Icon. God... just chill.

-tries to stop her heavy breathing before she passes out-

I don't usually rant... but I can't help it this time. If people would just tell me (it doesn't even have to be politely!) that I have their icon and ask me to credit i wouldn't be so upset. But no. I hear from a friend of a friend of someone I rp with that they're irate that I have their icon and demand that I take it down this instant.

NONE OF THE ICONS I USE ARE MINE UNLESS I SPECIFICALLY SAY THAT I CROPPED THEM. THEN I ONLY CROPPED THEM FROM PRE-EXISTING PHOTOS, IMAGES, ETC. AND THE ORIGINAL WORKS ARE NOT MINE!!!

Its enough to make me feel like not coming back to the net anymore. All my RP's have died so there's no real use for me to even be on here. Only RuneScape and I'm bored with that right now. -sigh-


Oh oh oh!! BTW! I've recently been getting hits on my counter and they're not by me! OMG! If you've been reading me... leave me a comment. I'm dreadfully lonely on the net right now and if you'd like to converse/debate about things or give me some reason to actually keep my journal up. I'll be more than happy to oblige.
