I’m really, really, really sick of hearing all the drama about pixiv editors vs. pixiv artists and everyone pointing fingers at everyone else and acting so fucking self-righteous and it’s starting to seriously bug me
I’m gonna attempt to have a say here.
How about if you don’t like pixiv editors, don’t follow them, don’t reblog their edits, and ignore them entirely. If you believe there’s nothing wrong with editing, then keep editing, because if it’s what you believe in, no one’s going to be able to stop you anyway. The truth is, no amount of harassment is going to eradicate all of the pixiv edits/editors from tumblr. The quicker everyone gets this through their heads, the better.
I understand each side to a certain degree. I understand the artists not wanting their work messed with, and I understand the editors are not meaning disrespect and still giving credit and how it really is something that’s been going on too long to just stop altogether. But seriously, those who are harassing, bullying, or chastising editors need to just sit down and realize there’s bigger things in this world to worry about, and you’re making all of the artists look bad with your aggressive methods. It is not your job to police anyone else, and that is not what tumblr is for. Do what you came here to do: blog. Let others run their blogs in peace, the way they wish, just like you’d want others to do for you.
Everyone just calm down, don’t follow someone who will cause you undue emotional distress, and just let this whole situation die, because as it stands, we’re all at an impasse and nobody’s winning. Just. Stop.
