I don't think it's a bad thing to do or anything, it's actually nice to certain people like me. Eh, I just don't really understand why people do it though, because you don't need to thank me, you already did that by creating such awesome art for my unworthy eyes to gaze upon! C:
Some people find it annoying, I don't, but whatever.
Also, most people seem to hate the whole "Mention" thing. I think it's cool, because I'd love to spam my favorite artists messages with my crap XD Plus I would never have to worry about getting mentioned too much because, well, yeah :T
Well, if you excuse me, I'm gonna continue browsing the "Newest" section for new deviants to watch Ima troll
