Wagner banned from DeviantArt -Updated

Wagner got banned from DeviantArt (permanently). No surprise there, it was just a question a time. The thing that would really bug me if it was my gallery though, is that DeviantArt has kept his gallery intact. That means DA will keep making money from the ad revenues made when people visit Wagner's gallery. I'm glad I pissed DA enough for them to trash my entire gallery.
Edit: and meanwhile, the neo-Nazis (ANSU) still have their club on DA. :-/

Update: For unknown reasons, Wagner is now unbanned. People might cheer, but don't go thinking DevianTart has changed.

Oh for fuck sakes... This is just another example of how hypocritic asshole mods at deviantart get off by deleting pictures and banning great artists, such as Wagner and yourself.

I wonder if Reiq or Dadward or all the other artists I have on watch will be banned, too. Since they you know draw boobies and porn.

What was the reason they gave for the banning?

I have never even seen the site before I started frequenting here, so maybe I'm missing something...

Why is it called "DeviantArt" when people are getting banned for making... well... deviant art???

Seems like that would be like kicking a starlet off of a porn site because she wasn't in family friendly poses.

I don't know why they banned him. But I imagine it has something to do with drawing adult versions of underraged characters in a sexual context.

Neither do I know why it is called Deviant Art when it's more like Devian Tart, amirite?

Odd, the ANSU isn't listed in Encyclopedia Dramatica. (My search was very cursory, but still...)

DeviantART has an adult content filter users can turn on or off. What difference does it make what is posted? Kind of odd. You would think from a business aspect at least DeviantART would not want to drive away its popular contributors.

Most of his drawings while good, are based off underage characters from kids shows. I gotta say I find it mildly disturbing. Kind of makes me wonder if he's pedophile.

Before anyone says anything I'm not against porn it's just really weird that his drawing are mostly about kids and kids shows.

Wow. Ok.

So seeing pictures of Danica McKellar half naked in a mens magazine probably means they are pedos?

Danica McKellar played Winnie in The "Wonder Years" before you ask.

If they weren't cartoon characters and instead real people (actors, actresses)... I think we would eventually want to see them naked.

Funny enough they do it themselves.

I mean look at the above.

Also, Jessica Alba, Britney Spears, and Jessica Simpson, to name a few, who were Child Actors and are grown up and... well... being naughty.

Guess I'm a pedo for remembering that they were on the shows I watched as a kid.

To be honest though, I only remember Jessica Alba from one movie, "Camp Nowhere" I loved that movie when I was... 8?

bahahah. BRB FBI!

OMG excellet point, people. What ever happened to "self censership"? If you don't want to look at the boobies, DON'T CLICK ON THE BOOBIES!!!!!!!!!11111one1112121111eleven

JESUS!! This same thing happans on FChan and 4Chan. People complain that things are "unfit and stuuuuuupid". SO? Don't look at them if you don't wanna!

DA will still make money, becuz they are stupid. So what? Let's let bigons be bigons and Nazis be Nazis.

But when DA starts invading Poland, then we must take action.

So long, Wagner. :-(

Meanwhile, have you seen this video, Sirkowski?

Probably the best piece of news commentary ever!

NOOOOOO. I cant STRESS how much this Pisses me off. I didnt even know. I got so busy with finally starting art school I hadnt Checked.

I came across Wagners work WAAAYYY back but could never find a source for his images. Then Finally When he gets a Place to post his work, they give him the CHOP!?. DANM that makes me mad. Now I fear there will be a lack of wagner art =/

well atleast I got him to draw me a sweet pic of jade chan. And I hardly even asked.

MAn, this gets me mad. I used to say that DA had a right to ban people because it is their website after all. you cant expect to move into some ones home and to make all the rules. But they are SO unfair about how they enforce thier rules. People Like Dadword and Reiq will never be Banned from DA. Bacause they are either friends with the admins. or they bring in to many hits To DA for them to cut them off. they arent giving much of an image for themselves.

Wagner Was a great artist IMO even when his pieces werent pornographic, they were all great and unique in style. and I sure hope he continues to post his stuff elsewhere.

oh and sorry for the double post but as for the hole pedophile thing? I cant speak on wagners behalf. But I can in a sense understand how the hole drawing kid toons older thing can be exciting. Im no psycholgist (spelling) but I too find some (not all) pics of younger cartoons as adult to be, err uhhmm stimulating ... I guess for lack of a better word.

cant really explain it honestly. Maybe there is something erotic about the hole growing up process in itself? the loss of innocence through adulthood or something like that, kinda turns people on.

like I said I cant explain it, I can merely understand as to why people do it ( if that even makes sense =P )

all I know is that as long as I stay limp wile watching the cartoons. im not worried =P

personally Im just a fan of the curves ^^

Ah, and thanks for the link to Wagner's blogspot. There is a lot of things real cool there.

"The Holy DArtboard" summarizes their banning system pretty well:

I don’t think the problem is knowing what they're rules are, but instead as to who they give lenience to and to who they will ban for the slightest infraction or imagined infraction.
Its not really that much of a surprise though since many people that are used to having no power take every little bit of power obtained to heart as if it was bestowed to them by the gods to use as their whims take them.

eerie how that editorial link by bushido hacks, though on a completely different matter, somehow parallels the issue of DA admins being picky about who gets banned for what. isn't the whole ideal the sharing and discovery of different artists, styles, and ideas? i mean, if Nazis can reportedly get their jollies, why can't i get the chance to see Kim Possible's cookie if i want?? am i just being too idealistic about teh internets??? am i asking too many questions for a post???? is it grammatically correct to go past 3 question marks????? ^_^

Good news: Wagner is back on DevianTART.

Now if only we can impeach Bush, hang Scooter, and Draft the Bush Twins the world will be in a better mood.

Wagner explains why he was banned: for linking to his blog.

So what they are saying is that it is STILL OK for the Neo-Nazis to have a page on DevianTART and link to their Nazi propoganda but Wagner can't link to the site with his dirty work.

DevianTART? More like Dee-Dee-DeevianTART. (Appologies to Carlos Mencia.)
