UPDATE: A friend did a bit of searching and found this person's google+ page here: plus.google.com/11360813113313…
I highly recommend if you have seen her on youtube or on google that you take whatever precautions you feel may be necessary.
UPDATE 2: If you want an easy way to reblog this on tumblr, here's the link to the post I made about it: spyke1985.tumblr.com/post/7885…
Also, I want to genuinely thank you guys for the outpouring of support you have all given this issue. This needs to be exposed. Thank you for helping the community to be a better, cleaner place.
UPDATE 3: Here is the link to the bioware forum post that kittygirl278 made: forum.bioware.com/topic/496377… She also sent in an email to report it. Thank you Kitty!
I'll let the report tell the tale of what's been going on here and what this journal is all about, but I would like to spread the word so that people are not fooled by this individual. Hopefully this will help keep others from being harassed into leaving this site. If what you see disgusts you as much as it does me, feel free to join my friends and I in reporting this individual. dA 'support' needs to wake the hell up.

I and several others have reported this individual over and over again, not only for using copyrighted material and claiming it as her own, but for specifically targeting and harassing and stalking our friend, who is about to delete her account because of this.... 'person', though I hesitate to even gift her with the title.
I myself almost left dA thanks to your blatant lack of caring about art theft, but I decided to stay in a limited capacity, solely to be able to communicate with the people I care about on this site.
I would strongly suggest that you IP ban this individual. I will be actively campaigning against this individual until she is removed from this site. I already have the support of my friends in this. If her psychotic stain is not removed from this site, more people will be harassed and stolen from, and more people will leave because of her.
Is this what you want? If it is, please do feel free to ignore every report I've ever sent in while trying to HELP YOU maintain the integrity of this blasted site.
This is the last report I'm sending in on this woman. If she's not dealt with, I'm gone. I've been on this site nearly six years now, but what I've seen in the past six months with your complete lack of response on this matter of my friend's harassment by this art thief has utterly soured all six of those years.
How you can let a person like this stay on your site is beyond me. This site was supposed to be about artists sharing their art and having a great community to help encourage each others' art, not being stolen from and harassed until they felt compelled to leave because of idiocy.
I'm done. If she doesn't leave, I'm gone.
thane-fanbook.deviantart.com/j… This journal is about this individual. It also features several posts from this individual that are more attempts at contacting my friend to harass her, yet again. She created the brand new account today and left a comment on one of her pieces. This is the fourth account (that we are aware of) this individual has created, all four featuring stolen art, all four used to harass my friend.
siha49.deviantart.com/art/Biow… This is art stolen by her and claimed as her own from Bioware. This art is copyrighted work. She removed the artist's name, source and copyright information, as you can plainly see here: www.wallpaperup.com/uploads/wa… and in the actual Bioware store here: www.deviantart.com/users/outgo…
I would list many more examples, but she deleted the accounts she had the other stolen works on. I realize this may not be an overabundance of evidence, but trust me when I say this has been going on for far too bloody long.
This cannot be allowed to continue. This individual is not the only art thief and stalker/harasser I've seen on this site, but she certainly is one of the most persistent I have seen. That she drove my best friend to leaving this site through six months of steady harassment is more than enough for me to want her gone. The fact that she is a blatant art thief is merely the icing on the cake.
Please people, if you see someone like this who steals and/or pesters someone until they actually feel they need to delete their account to get some peace, report them. For the love of all that's sacred, report them.
Also, feel free to repost this journal anywhere you think it could be seen, submit it to any group you like, etc. Word needs to be spread that this kind of behavior will not be tolerated.
