Both parties, stop it right here. Anon goes her/his way and dragon & cface stay calm, both of you. There is a certain heat caused by mutual misunderstandings. Dragonspell is the exact opposite of the power mongering mod who bans people without solid reason and this is the first time I see her acting like this. So there has to be a reason *stares at anon*.
Yes, it's disrespectful to insult other's artwork. Insults are against the common netiquette and can lead to warnings and eventually to a ban on this forum should it become necessary to restore peace.
To resolve this situation I suggest anon to write an apology post and everything is fine. Your warning level will be reduced from mute to warned because from my point of view you have your share of blame as well. Insults, even fake trolls are very rare on this board and are not tolerated. You are no exception. A warning for 7 days is appropriate.
Well, thank you for being the voice of reason once again. I don't know why I should apologize for being the only mature person here while all the others feeling bruised for throwing some hard balls at each other. But I excuse my comments about the artworks of two persons here (though I still find it laughable to make a serious comment on their skills cause they did it for the lulz themselves). And I excuse to the mods dragonspell and zEPHONEs (changed your name again, huh) for being trolling them (because it wasn't trolling, I only defend myself which was my good right). But you know, I am used to get nailed on the cross just for being myself and upright to the bone. I'm a honest member and a good contributer like anyone else, and I will continue who I am, because I have character. At least the mods now know who I am and that my record on ST is justified to some reason.

Lawl, that was one epic clash. SD showed everyone what a whiny ass he really is.
And I'm back!!! I hate dragonspell!!! Die, die, die!!! We should make a ST Club here like that Natsu's Wife thing and rant about those intolerant and xenophobic jCafe old farts here. I'm starting to hate those arrogant fags. And Ryunii with his stupid rules that don't have any relevance outside the Comic's section. RAAAAAAAGEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!
Now here would be the place to go for a bet. Spend a night in the suicide forest to win.
"The perfect place to die." That's how Aokigahara was described in Wataru Tsurumui's bestselling book The Complete Manual of Suicide. A dense, dark forest bordering Mt. Fuji, Aokigahara is infamous throughout Japan as a popular spot for those taking their final journey.
In 2002, 78 bodies were found within it, replacing the previous record of 73 in 1998. By May of 2006, at least 16 new suicides had already been found. More than a few of them were even carrying copies of Tsurumui's book. No one knows how many bodies go undiscovered.
Signs emblazoned with messages such as "Please reconsider" and "Please consult the police before you decide to die!" are nailed to trees throughout the forest. However, the woods have such a reputation that these minor deterrents do little to stop the determined. Local residents say they can always tell who is going into the forest for its stunning natural beauty, who is hunting after the macabre and who is planning never to return.
We've got everything here that points to us being a death spot. Perhaps we should just promote ourselves as 'Suicide City' and encourage people to come here, the exasperated mayor of Aokigahara has been quoted as saying.
Part of the appeal is dying at the foot of the sacred Mt. Fuji. Part of it is the foreboding nature of Aokigahara, so dense and thick that from just a few kilometers inside it no sounds can be heard other than those produced by the forest itself. Legends surround the place; for instance, there are said to be massive underground iron deposits that cause compasses to go haywire, trapping innocents along with the purposely suicidal.
Japan's HYPERLINK "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japan_Self-Defense_Forces"Self Defence Force regularly runs training exercises throughout Aokigahara, and claims to have had no trouble with their military-grade lensatic compasses. They admit, though, that commercially available equipment would be pretty much useless.
Aokigahara is considered the most haunted location in all of Japan, a purgatory for yurei, the unsettled ghosts of Japan who have been torn unnaturally soon from their lives and who howl their suffering on the winds.
Spiritualists say that the trees themselves are filled with a malevolent energy, accumulated from centuries of suicides. They don't want you to go back out.
However, even in these haunted woods, regular humans still have a job to do. Forestry workers rotate in and out of shifts at a station building in Aokigahara, and occasionally they will come upon unfortunate bodies in various states of decomposition, usually hanging from trees or partially eaten by animals.
The bodies are brought down to the station, where a spare room is kept especially for such occasions. In this room are two beds: one for the corpse and one for someone to sleep next to it. Yup, you read that correctly. It is thought that if the corpse is left alone, the lonely and unsettled yurei will scream the whole night through, and the body will move itself into the regular sleeping quarters.
In inimitable style, the workers jan-ken to see who gets to sleep with the body. And you thought your job was rough.
