How in the seven hills of hell did you come up that I or other artists think or feel you and voters in general are beneath the them? if you're trollin' for arguments sake please troll on but please understand your claim is pure fantasy. Not for one moment in any of my comments was there any inkling of that intent stated or inferred.
I'm not just trying to stir up an argument. I checked on the comments for this design because I really like it and would like to see it printed. Others initially mentioned seeing it elsewhere but as I read things over, it seemed like you were the most vocal about it being disqualified. Furthermore, it seemed, as I said before, that some of your comments were driven by the fact that you did not submit a design a previous week and were upset about that. I took that as you had a personal issue with this situation and that the motivation for the lengthy posts about how this design supposedly violates a ton of rules was motivated by your own personal issues. So, I spoke up and threw my two cents out there.
I will stand by my comment that at times, the tone in messages (here and elsewhere) defers to the artists and can be dismissive of those who are not. As a relatively new participant (which I admitted right away) and someone who has never submitted a design I will admit that I am still learning about things work here. For me, though, it seems like at times the message is "you're not an artist, you don't know enough to participate." I don't expect you to understand that Midgerock because of the perspective that you have, but this is how I've interpreted things here and on other threads.
