I'm so mad. No wonder I have social phobia. People are just plain mean and rude. You would think people would be grateful I'm watching them. Most people are. Most of you have been very nice to me and leave nice comments. Thanks a lot. This isn't for you. But for those of you who have griped at me for watching you, here is the explanation I don't think you deserve. First, I don't think I'm wrong. Is there a rule somewhere you can't watch "everyone" ?????????? Is watching you hurting you???????? Yes, I do watch a lot of people. Tons. But I don't just watch
random people. I do have a reason for everyone I put in. Yes, I'm Obsessive-Compulsive (not an excuse, but a fact). Yes, I like getting pictures in my mailbox thing. Yes, I do love adding people to my watch. Yes, I have a lot of time to look at pics since I don't work (read my journal about me at… entry to see why not). Yes, I do comment on some Art.
These are not the reasons I'm watching you.
1. I'm not watching you to hurt you.
2. I'm not watching you to steal your work (I'd never do a thing like that).
3. I'm not watching you so you will watch me. If you want to watch me great, if not great.
4. I'm not watching you to get comments. If you want to comment thanks, if not fine.
I mean I'm not holding a gun to anyone's head to watch me or comment. My! Are people so
suspicious? Do they think it's a conspiracy against them?

Now if you still feel I OWE you an explanation, I don't think I do but I will anyway.
1. I do watch people because they make tutorials.
2. I do watch people who make brushes, actions and stuff for Photoshop, Paintshop and Gimp.
3. I do watch people with similar interest and are in groups I like such as neopets, Photoshop.
ETC. I have many interest.
4. I do watch people that live in Texas and are on the same GEOurl page I'm on.
5. And I do watch people I like. I like all kinds of art.
6. There are other reasons I watch people. Non of which is to hurt anyone but I gave you enough.

I feel I have the right to watch who I want and as many people as I want. I feel this site should
be fun. Who are you to destroy my fun, and my happiness? Why can't people just go by the saying "if you can't say nothing nice don't say nothing at all." (I don't mean constructive criticism on
art, that is fine as long as it's meant to help not hurt) Why do you want to hurt me? Why are
people so mean? Yes, I'm a very sensitive person. That happens when you get made fun of all your life for being disabled. I just want to have fun, make friends and collect pics for my
Screenpaver and private collection. I didn't even start here to do art and be watched.
I'm sure most of you understand. Thanks. But for the rest of you who still think I'm a bad evil
person and I shouldn't be watching you, I only have one thing to say - F*CK OFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now if anyone care enough to find out more about me go here…
If you don't that's cool and thanks for reading this.

P.S. If you are going to complain about my typing, spelling, grammar or anything else, keep it to yourself. I don't want to hear it.

I LOVE it when people watch me, the people who are nasty about it are arrogant and they don't understand the word kindness! I would never dream of being nasty to someone because they watch me or comment on my work, i think of it as an honour!! :)

I love it when people watch makes me feel good about myself, to know that someone out there likes my work :D

So, thank you ever so much for watching :hug: it means a lot :D

I don't understand why anyone would be upset that you're watching them. How silly. I'm honoured that you've been watching me for quite a while now. I don't know if I ever properly thanked you. :)


blue-elem3nt Featured By Owner May 23, 2004  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I feel honored by ANYONE who watches me, it confuses me how people could feel otherwise. I just can't understand why people would get upset over someone watching them, it should make them happy if anything. I wouldn't worry about it too much, if there is anything I've learned in life, is that some people were blessed with common sense, and a few seem to lack it (or choose not to use it.... or something)

Well, I'd just like to take the opportunity to thank you for watching me! I haven't been on DA as much as I would like, because for just over a year I've been finding my stride as a soon-to-be stepmother, and some things have to give.

Thanks again for the devwatch!
Miniweat Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2004
I appreciate the watch. Thanks for the lnog explanation too...hehe. But seriously, its good to watch people you like though you probably won't find much in the way of artwork on my page other than writing.

I am a poet and possess no skill in photoshop or the like. But on ocasion I work on collaborations with my friend Joe or my girl friend. Those will be posted on ~TheShortbusBrigade.

heres a :blackrose: to thank you for watching me! :D

Don't worry about those that made you feel bad - it is one of the unfortunate things about the net... some people tend to say and do things they would never say or do in person. Sometimes you just need to find the strength to ignore them - knowing that they are a minority...

I don't know why you are watching me - but I know you have your reasons... It makes me feel part of the community even when I can't be as active as I'd like...
firesprite Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2004
I'm always flattered if somebody wants to watch me. I don't get very many views on my page, and I'm not quite sure why, but it sure was nice to see that you were watching me from the beginning. I hope you enjoy my art, and all of the other people's art on your watch list! Have a good day! *leaves her silly avatar on the page*
degauss Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2004
persoanly, I say thanks a ton for the watch, for whatever reason you may have watched me. I take it as an honor to be watched and hopefully, I can turn out some more worthwhile stuff for you soon.

People are complaining about being watched? Woah, what's up with that? Oh well in all fairness they must have their own reasons for being like that. But anwyays, I was pretty curious as to why I was chosen to be watched by you, so here I am. Thanks for the watch! I'm real sorry that you have to put up with those sorts of people though.

I don't see a problem with you watching as many people as you want. Why someone would complain is beyond me.

You watch as many people as you want, that's your choice ^__^! I can't understand why anyone would have a problem with someone watching them.

I just thought it amusing to see in most of my friends Devwatch sections your name ^_^.

I've read posts by people that bitch about people watching them to get comments etc. I think it's rediculous, I add people to my devwatch because I'm interested in the art that they post. Not to get them to look at mine. Screw them, if they get rude, just take 'em off your watch, they're not worth it. I'm really happy that you like my work, and are watching me. I like sharing my art, so I hope you enjoy everything I put up in the future as well. Forget about the ungrateful ones :hug:

Why do people have issues with people watching them? If they don't wanna be watched, they need to get off DA!!!

Not many people take the time to read poetry and such and less take the time to add the authors to their watch.
Lazy people...

Isn't being watched by someone considered flattery? I hand over several million donuts to each watcher - And I'm flattered people would like to keep track of when I update. DevWatching is similar to how a site can have a newsletter - They send out monthly (or weekly) updates to the people who sign up. There's nothing wrong with it.

(Not directly related, but thanks for the dev-watch. :D)
