I've decided to write a followup article to Part 1 because apparently many of my points were missed or buried beneath the mountain of personal attacks and poor debate tactics. For those of you who posed questions or want to know the truth, read on. For those of you more interested in bashing Scott Jarkoff or me personally, then close your browser because the truth doesn't matter to you anyway. (To read Part 1, click here.)
I did not get fired from deviantART. I voluntarily stepped down from my dual position as Manager of the Message Network Administration and a Policy Violation Administrator. I did not step down solely because of Scott Jarkoff's termination; that act was however the last straw. For me, it was the last in a steadily growing list of things I was dissatisfied with. Those who have put forth the rumor that I was terminated obviously haven't taken the time to do any sort of research whatsoever, and should do so in the future if they plan to spread information. My resignation post is quite easily found on Euphoric Reality and at deviantART, and has been readily available to the general public since the original date of posting.
I mentioned several issues with site content and policy during my stay at deviantART. Daniel Sowers, the head of the Policy Enforcement Department, can attest to this. We had several differences of opinion throughout the years. Other members of the PV team both current and former can also verify this. Therefore, those who have attempted to cast a bad light on me personally by claiming that "I should have said something beforehand" are, quite simply, speaking in error.
I was not a paid employee until 2005. For over two years, I was a volunteer admin who spent an ungodly amount of time at the site and in the community. The accusation that I "kept quiet" about my misgivings because I was earning a paycheck is also unfounded. While I will not disclose the exact amount of my compensation that began in 2005, I can tell you that it is slightly more than minimum wage, and less than a typical McDonald's employee makes. Keeping quiet about misgivings is not only not in my nature, but it would have been pointless in this case.
