I originally wrote and posted this elsewhere, but I just need to post it here too and expand on it a bit. This is the only place where I'd publicly go this deep.

Robin Williams made light for the whole world out of his own personal darkness. He is irreplaceable. People like him are a true gift to life and often paying dearly for it, sometimes the ultimate price. That fact about him was not a secret.
It's deeply profound and sad when someone who caused so much joy for so many people for so long is suddenly just gone, let alone the ultimate circumstances thereof.

It is often wondered 'How can someone this funny be so sad?', or the other way around. You know how people like to refer to sad clowns without thinking any further than just this attempt at making an ironic statement.
Often enough the sad truth is that someone is as great at making people laugh as he or she is because he or she are deeply sad or depressed or otherwise very troubled on the inside. Maybe bringing joy to others is their own personal coping mechanism. Maybe the lack of joy is the ultimate realization of what joy means and how important it is.
When it's someone's mission in life to give joy, it's worthy pondering why that might be.

That guy made me laugh really fucking hard here and there for almost all of my life with some of the stupidest shit ever and now he's gone.

He couldn't make light anymore and he went out, but he leaves behind millions and millions of people whose life's he made brighter.
That light will never go out.

I'd like to ask you to refrain from replying to questions that are directed at me on my own profile page. It's literally not your place to do so, regardless of providing a correct answer.

Thanks for your help Thunderstatement, I am currently on my profile from my grandmother's. It seems that I am only unable to log in from my house. I hope I can figure out the problem. Again, Thanks for helping me figure out what the problem was.~

that sounds like something is not working as expected in your home's network, but that's something we can not investigate for you. :)

Uh, greetings sir! I was just wondering, about the rumor about getting rid of the name-wasting deviants, and what not on may 21st, is this true? 
Here's the rumor:

As of May the twenty first, deviantART will be deleting ALL  dA accounts. Not the plz accounts though. But just all name-wasted accounts, or accounts that we think are fake, or that are useless. We are doing this to prevent something that could possibly may happen in the future. If we find this message on you're deviantID, journal, etc. We will know that you are not a fake.

Thank you for listening,

-deviantART staff

Seeing as it's September now, that obviously didn't happen, as it was a hoax.

I almost can't believe that! :lol:
If we ever did anything like that you'd hear it from us, the staff, and not from chain journals.
As for these hoaxes, we can only recommend telling anybody you see posting such that it's simply not true.
