I know EXACTLY what you mean about the mature filter..
I chose "other".. here's mine:
Now, I DO see nudity very pure, and very symbolic. That's not what I'm complaining about. I stumbled on a front page deviation one time. Let me enlighten you... >_>
A cell phone camera quality picture, of a man taking an up close picture of his erection. No artistic lighting, was extremely low quality, not even B&W. Description? "This is my erection." It literally was just an excuse to post porn. Maybe he'll link it to cyber forums to show girls his penis.
His gallery? Just cell phone pictures of his erections, flaccid penis, and scrotum.
>_> To me, that's not artistic. People are using DA as a way to upload their porn and naked bodies, or girls to show off their implants, vaginas, and asses.. It's disgusting, if you ask me. Art is being taken advantage of.

I don't mind the mature stuff, it's just if they don't put a filter on it, i mean c'mon, not everyone wants to see that!
Just most of them, ha ha ha ha ha, etc. Cynical me!
The crazy ass shonen ai fan girls with their pairings THAT COULD NOT HAPPEN IF YOU'D READ THE MANGA/WATCH THE ANIME AND PAY ATTENTION YOU'D SEE HOW EVEN IF THEY ARE GAY, THE CHEMISTRY ISN'T THERE! The sane ones i like, shonen ai is okay. But it's the crazies... god... those ones are the annoying ones.
People who make a big deal out of having so many pageviews, at least half of those are accidental or someone didn't even stick around to fave anything. So it doesn;t count. Anyways, why you doing it for the pageviews?
The lack of respect for literature.
The whole porn vs. art argument. Art is interesting, since it's a BROAD TERM THAT ENCOMPASSES A LOT. M'kay?
The fact that dA was banned in China... dammit!
Admins... 'nuff said... I'm not sure what i can or cannot put in my poetry... i really don't relish the thought of a banning... but then again, it might make me infamous! YAY!
People who think because they do traditional work that their better then digital artists and vice versa. Neither one is better, their both equally good, so drop it.
PEOPLE WHO LEAVE SPAM COMMENTS! GOD ALMIGHTY DO NOT DO THAT TO ME! IT'S ANNOYING AND I HATE IT! LEAVE MY PAGE ALONE I WILL NOT ANSWER THEM! the whole crap of it all...
people who rip on fan artists... it's old and stupid...
Other- the sheer amount of emoness, complaining and overall unhapiness radiating from the site XD All those other problems can occur anywhere I think (except the fav and running... but I'm guilty of that, so I can't really complain about it XD).
Mature without filter. My younger sisters browse dA, mature filters are there for a damned reason. And they're not exactly optional, either. If your deviation is not suitable for youngsters, you effing mature it or I report, and someone else will mature it for you. >:U
I mean, I'm not anal about it or anything, not everything with a bad word or semi-boob shaped item should be matured. XD BUT JEEZ, GUYS. nudity/porn/sex-related/and preferably things with used tampons DEFINITELY need to be matured. :U
I don't get angry, I know it's going to solve anything.
From all the idiocy I witnessed, though, one thing stucks out. The fetishists / fantards that fave just about anything that remotely has something to do with the stuff they're into. It gets the most crappy art on the front page, and actual good art stays undiscovered.
It's something I can get a bit snappy about, but angry...? Never.
Mature content w/out filters for me. Damn it, I'm seeing like, pics of ppl masturbating, old men in women's dresses flashing their underwear, and like, people being tied up and having rope as butt floss. Put on some damn filter people. (And in my eyes I don't really see that stuff as art anyway, sry)
