[EDITED ON 06.01] The person (about whom I forgot to mention that they tried to hide their identity by posing as different members of their family, by changing username and accounts multiple times and by opening new sites whenever their BS caught up with them) is back. Today I found out they broke the rules of my graphics site by making modifications that are not allowed to a design, and when I “confronted” them about it they didn’t even acknowledge it (talking as if the issue only concerned a detail of the design). That’s it. I’m done. I’m gonna find out their IP and I’m gonna block them from viewing any site I own. [/END EDIT]
I absolutely can’t stand people who act all nice, soft and generous, only for it to be revealed as fake and a mean to the end of getting something in return, and when they’re caught they start lying and going around acting like they’re victims - when in truth they’re actually the bullies.
There is a person notorious in pretty much all graphics communities (Deviantart, the anime gfx community, the siteworld, etc.) for being basically a lying and harassing bully; they have been going around (for almost a decade now) on sites’ cboxes asking for free things, and whenever they got/get denied they start spreading lies and acting like they’re the ones being bullied by mean people - when it’s actually the other way ‘round; this person has shown this attitude several times with several designers. And they lie not only when denied, but in order to get things as well....and that’s what they did to me.
I’m someone who believes in second chances (this person has had fourth, fifth and beyond chances already), so when this person contacted me sounding like they had finally grown up, knowing their track record I was of course wary but still decided to trust them; so we talked and they even made me a gift....which wasn’t a gift at all, but turned out to be an item to trade in exchange for the thing they were interested in getting. Everything, the kindness and softness and the “gift”, was fake, nothing more than a deceitful and interested attempt to get what they wanted. I of course shut that sh*t down immediately and called that person out upon their behaviour and, after seeing that their tries to guilt-trip me using sob gifs and images (could they be more childish? O.M.G.) didn’t work, they vanished without being heard from again - but it won’t last. That’s that person’s m.o.: after getting caught, they disappear and lays low for a while until they think people forgot what they did and they’re free to try it again without getting caught (which never works/happens LMAO). By the way, this person is over 30....and setting new standards for immaturity.
Sorry for the long rant, but this person made me so mad and I need to vent - and they deserve to be outed for the troll they are.
See you all next time; many cheers. XOXO
