I don't mind demotivational posters because some people are able to create something that many other people can relate to.
HOWEVER they don't belong on dA or any other art sides!

Demotivational posters are when people steal the artwork of others. That is not art, it is stealing.
people DO give credit so it's NOT stealing
don't like it?
Go Cry me river.
Demotivational posters are not art because you take some art someone else made, slap a black border around it, and throw on some words. You don't do anything artistic.
Just not anything special.
A picture would be art. So, a picture surrounded by a black box with white text at the bottom would still be art. It just looks a heck of a lot worse. It's like a child's coloring book. The pictures usually look better BEFORE the child gets to them.
I don't hate on them.
Not to mention that literature doesn't use images that are (more often than not) stolen.
