.. so please ignore the 'Don't forget to comment' popup speech bubble that DA has imposed on each artist whenever a viewer faves. I don't mean it. DA IS PUTTING WORDS IN MY MOUTH!
When I see one of these asshat 'Don't fave if you don't comment' descriptions or stamps, it really leaves a bad taste in my mouth. It impinges the artist's ego over a picture that had given me aesthetic pleasure.
And then I instantly fave without commenting. WITH A VENGEANCE.
Sometimes, you just want to bookmark something pretty but don't have anything useful at all to say. Demanding comments is really greedy and assumes the viewer wants to spend time thinking up something meaningful just to bolster your ego. When a fave is just one click that has the same meaning as an applause. Or a thumbs-up in social media.
