Synfull Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2011
:lol: Can't get rid of me that easily
phoenixleo Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2011
we don't want to get rid of you..someone was saying you deactivated and we were panicking why D: and then ^lightningmonkey said you didn't and your account was active. then i realized there was a typo in the username :lol:
Synfull Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2011
:B easy mistake. I think that's 4 sets of people that have made that typo in the last two weeks in regards to either my dA name or email. I'm not the deactivating account, though it would have seemed fitting since i seem to land myself in some drama every few days >.<
phoenixleo Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2011
deactivations are kind of like pauses for me :P
You do? I never saw you in drama o_O
Synfull Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2011
I really hate people who deactivate for short periods of time. It's like suicide without a note. No one exactly knows why its occurred, rumours start and its the friends that end up having to deal with concerned people because the deviant is out of the picture.

Probably because its all in an odd journal here, a poll there. Nothing minor, but all irritating. Ah well :P
phoenixleo Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2011
I deactivated for short-lengthy periods of time :lol: Though I did let others know it was for personal issues and not dA drama :lol: So it doesn't go to drama :P
Synfull Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2011
There's always bound to be one or 2 that don't get the message so get concerned. I know i was once when you deactivated. Whatever the reason for it, there;s better ways to get off dA for a few days. For example, hand your pass over to a friend to lock yourself out.
