Friends

A few months ago, everyone who was forced over from MSN started appearing twice on their friends' contact lists if they used the Skype program to chat.

A couple of weeks ago, the original "Messenger" contact entry for them was removed from everyone's lists. This means if they never talked to you using Skype, they've just disappeared.

kupoexe, please get in touch. Skype has removed you because of this. Outside of dA I've lost a couple of other friends I speak with regularly because they used the MSN protocol on alternatives like Trillian, or the web chat feature on Outlook.com. They're just gone.

Everyone, we seriously need to look for a new chat program. Skype has had problems delivering messages correctly for the last year and now it's removing our contacts - deliberately. This is a complete failure of the two most basic functions a messaging program is meant to perform.

Hi man, it's been a while! :), how are you doing with the update? have you given up or are you having problems? it's been some time since you last talked about it :(

I have been having problems, particularly with the one feature it seems everyone wants. After this long I won't update it without that. But the bigger hold-up lately is that whenever I make time I find other art deadlines.

I saw how fervently you debated on I Need Feminism, and was wondering if you'd be interested in joining Facts-not-feminism

Thank you for checking my profile to say these kind words, I'm quite surprised you'd still ask after seeing my works and favourites.

I would be interested, but I'm thinking it's probably not a good idea for me to do so. For one thing, the subject matter I tend to work with is an easy target for criticism in the equality debate!

On a more personal level, the argument itself does get me worked up and cause me stress. I can easily imagine getting invested with an active group and that wouldn't be healthy for me.

That's the reason I spoke out against dA's decision to feature that unfair poem, so now they have deplorably just done so a second time you may be interested to read my newer response:

Thank you for your comment once again.

Your art is various anime drawings and your favorites seems comprised mostly of varying fetishes, none of which would disqualify you from the group, as they aren't related to the group's purpose.

But feminism is an easy target in the equality debate. According to feminists, women are so weak that all it takes to render them powerless is to call them names. There are few things in this culture quite as misogynist as feminism.

Mostly the group just posts news updates in the journals. 

I ask that you give our group a look before making a decision. Check out a few submissions and journals, but don't leave comments if you don't feel like it. If after a brief look around you still don't want to join, then so be it. No hard feelings.
