Seriously, folks, if you didn't hear it from someone with the fancy little staff symbol next to their name, it's simply not true. I encourage everyone to be skeptical of things like this. Ask questions, get the true story, don't just buy in because people say so.
Oh, and while we're at it, SOPA and TPP will not shut down deviantART. Go ahead and oppose it, but do the research to know why it's a bad thing.
