Attention all! I do not fully GET the whole point of getting down on my knees and blowing people for icons but whatever. I did not realize it was a crime to use an icon AFTER someone offered it up. So, here you go. I GOT THIS ICON I USED FROM THIS POST FROM OLIVEJUICE_ICON supposedly. Even though I picked it up MONTHS ago from adopt_me icon community. GOD FORBID. I AM SORRY. I will be sure to slice my wrists right open tonight and bleed for my sins. It's okay. I have a life beyond the internet so I don't get my feathers ruffled over things like this. K? THX. Whatever the lingo is. Thank you everyone, try the veal, and don't forget to tip your waitress.

I will make this post public so everyone can see what a total bitch and icon thief I am. Actually, I am more of a sarcastic bitch than anything. And this icon does kick ass so I really don't mind.

look, just send me an email, a REAL email, and I'll send you the link to the BIG ass zipfile full of icons. You're free to use any of'em, except of course the ones I'm currently using.

Funny you should post this. You know how I love pandas?? I have discovered an icon with a dancing cartwheeling panda. I'm going to use it. Plus, I like that icon. It's totally.. hot beautiful erotic etc? :)

See? I don't see what the deal is. Maybe I am just not as sensitive as some others. I could see if I was using someone's writing, saying it was mine or something. But whenever someone asks about one of my icons I always tell them I got them from the adopt_me community. Please. I am not some kind of icon pirate dammit.

want more icons? I have thousands.

The person who 'made' that icon can NOT claim it unless they took the original picture.

Re: haha
heh. I understand creditting some stuff, like people make some really pretty/cool/scary/whatever icons. But resizing an image and saying OK THATS MINE NOW just baffles me.

And feet scare me, so I didn't steal your feet :P

People are idiots
I once found an awesome icon of Mulder from an episode where he lost his mind, and the text on the icon said something like, "Out of His Mind," which really described me at the time, so I took it and kept it and used it. Some priss from the XF community jumped my shit about it, and how it was HIS icon that he and a friend came up with. I pointed out that technically he didn't own it, as DD's mug or his character's mug was not of his creation, and it wouldn't break my back to go and make the same damn icon in photoshop.

I didn't end up doing it, but I should have. It would have been so awesome to school him in that respect.

People are stupid. Enough said.

Icon war

I think inless the person spent time making the damm icon they need to relize that its just a icon. Your really cool for writing this but I think u have every right to have that icon.

That post is classic. Wish I could steal it .. but, yeah, that would make me a thief & stuff *LMAO*

I ran into this as well with some people (well, a person,) from my past who likes to believe she owns the earth, heaven, and parts of hell. We ended up having the same stupid quiz or something or other in our journals and she flipped and accused me of 'living in her shadow'. Funny thing is, I got the damned thing from a girl on my friends list.

I read a quote in a friend's journal today that totally fit the situation (and this one, as well ..) It said "If I gave a shit, you'd be the first person I'd give it to!"

You commented in my journal, so I stopped by to check yours out.I must agree about the not giving birth thing. I am not pushing any being out of this body. Thanks. My boyfriend has a son, and I tell him if he wants another kid he better give birth to one. Because I'm not having it! I'll friend you so we can get to know each other. Sound good?
