Who actually reads my journals?
Let's see who reads this entirely...leave me a one word comment that best describes me, using the SECOND letter of your FIRST name. It can only be ONE word. Then copy and paste this to your journal so I can leave a word about you. Don't just PUT a word and NOT copy, that's no fun.

Cyber bullying is, without question, a growing problem in today's social networking society, and quite literally, a silent killer. It is our feeling, as deviants, that more action should be taken by the DeviantART staff to prevent this.

According to DeviantART's etiquette, cyber bullying would fall under “discouraged commentary”, being known as having “the potential to escalate into an aggressive or abusive situation...we discourage public accusatio:ns and other similar situations.” It is clear that the DeviantART staff does work to keep the peace on DeviantART, and make it a positive experience for all of it's users. They discourage harassment and exploitation of other users and heated public disputes and encourage users to report acts of such nature; however, discouraging is still tolerating, and we do not believe that bullying should be tolerated on DeviantART.

It is important to understand, however, that cyber bullying does not include things such as a mutual argument between two or more people. Cyber bullying is deliberate and personal attacks intended to intimidate, threaten, humiliate, degrade and/or disgrace an individual on the internet, whether or not they are posted publicly or sent privately. This behavior is quite different than two or more people engaging in a personal argument and thus, should be handled differently. Cyber bullying should be considered “Prohibited Commentary”, punishable by banishment. It is a concern of many that simply discouraging such behavior by removing the offending deviations is ineffective in preventing bullying because it allows the bullies to continue their behavior and encourages them to then resort to harassing via private communication.

We understand that there is always more than one side to every conflict and sometimes it can be difficult to define a behavior as “bullying”, because some conflicts are made to look one-sided, but might be a mutual argument. This is why, to be fair, we believe that anyone accused of bullying should be given an opportunity to plead their case before being banished.

Therefore, we as DeviantART users believe that cyber bullying should be treated and handled with more severity than a 'discouraged commentary', and should be treated as an offense that is punishable by banishment.

Hey, everyone I'm AnOptimisticSnarker, but you guys can call me Yoshi (or Marcus) if you want. It isn't my real name (Marcus is though), but you can call me it.

Anyway, I've finally joined this site and I can't wait to put out some stuff on the shows and fanfics I love! If you can't tell by my Favorites page, I have the STRANGEST tastes in shows EVER! There is no rhyme or reason as for why I like shows and stuff, all I know is I like 'em.

I hope to have a great time on this site and to meet some awesome people too! Well, see ya'!

P.S. My numerous OC's will pop in my writings and drawings on occasion. Please don't mind them, they won't bite. (Well, some of them might if provoked...)

My DeviantArt Section. This is here because it's about damn time I put something here like this.

I only do requests for friends. And by friends I mean we need to have talked a considerable amount.

I guess I can take up some commissions. How would one go about doing them exactly though?

Fifteen Facts About ME! YAY! (Adding more because why not?)

1) I am a HUGE Nintendo Fanboy! My mains in Super Smash Bros. are Yoshi, Kirby, Jigglypuff, Pichu, and R.O.B.

2) My favorite color is chartreuse yellow. I'm also really into Astrology! (I'm a Cancer by the way!)

3) My favorite cartoon is Phineas and Ferb, and my favorite anime is Lucky Star.

4) I love Power Rangers, and am keeping up with the latest season Power Rangers Megaforce!

5)Some of my favorite Pokémon include: Wooper, Breloom, Marshtomp, Froakie, Mareep, Clefairy, Jynx, Cyndaquil, Bellsprout, Pichu, and Jigglypuff!

6) I am African-American, thank you for asking, and despite being male, I love romance, being a big hopeless-romantic myself.

7) I can be very optimistic one minute, then snarky and rude the next. How I type depends on my mood and the current moon phase.

8) I love Total Drama (My favorite character is TDI DJ) and Pokémon, though I figured you might know that!

9) I'm pretty lax, but if you piss me off I won't hesitate to give a verbal lashing if I feel you deserve one.

10) I love fanfiction, so I'll probably be reading and favorite-ing some on this site! I also hope to maybe write one, one day.

11) I am a Nostalgia Critic, Linkara, and JesuOtaku fan and a lover of TV Tropes. (Maybe I like it a little too much...)

12) I actually am easily flattered. In real life if were to show up, my face would be red literally half the time during the day.

13) I wish it would snow where I live. Seriously, it's warm approximately ten months out twelve a year where I am.

14) I'm crazy. (Aka the only person I know who doesn't have sugar-rushes and at the same time having too much energy.) And perverted. And I'm not sure or not, but I could have at one point been asexual due to my lack of sexual attractions to people. I get attractions now, but not back when I was just hitting puberty.

15) I probably wouldn't sleep if I didn't have to. I'd be up all night and day long just because.

Oh, I'm good thanks for asking. How 'bout you?

I'm fine. I was walking from Aldershot to my home on feet for the very first time. It took me 50 minutes to make it home. After that, I was reading Michael Grant's Gone Series Book 5: Fear. It's good so far.

Oh wow, that sounds like it was quite the walk. Did you enjoy yourself? And is that the latest book in that particular series?

So, did you get a chance to read Rewind yet? I'm looking forward to seeing what you think of it. :)

All I have to say is thank God Franklin is out of there. Truth be told, he wasn't as bad as I thought he'd be; that might be because he's the Ezekiel of the story. I know some people don't care for Zeke, but I have sympathy for him and what he went through. Still, being racist will only get you eliminated.
