What's the Deal?

What's the deal with DA these days? It is becoming more and more pornographic (No, a close-up of some guy's penis hanging out of his pants is not an artist nude.) Art thieves/plagiarists are ignored by the staff. They add a feature that would have been a great boon to DA as an art community (critiques) then make that feature for subscribers only (I was actually a subscriber when that came out and avoided it on principle. It is the one of the few features that should be free).

I love how I constantly hear people in complaints talking about running into bad photos of genitals, yet in my three years of using this site I've never once found any in my day-to-day browsing.

I think cameras and equipment is too easily accessible nowadays. Too many people are just taking nudes because they can and its the only thing which will get them a lot of views on whatever profile they post it on. Happens on Facebook to unfortunately -.-
That seems most likely.

But I like sweaty wet vagina's everywhere.

I don't see the issue.

Penis hanging out of pants =/= porn.

Just thought you might want to know...just for future reference.
According to DA Playboys are not porn either... just for future reference.
