This thread is is the main offender on here. None of the images posted link back to the original source or crediting the artist. Rule 1 of reposting an image is that you should always credit the artist. How'd one of you feel if I took something you made and posted it without mentioning that you drew it?
A lot of people here probably just take their images from Danbooru, which they can't link to because NSFW ads, so they re-up to an image storage site. Danbooru always links back to the original Pixiv image, so there's nothing stopping you from posting that link. If needing a Pixiv account to view full images is a problem, just make an account. It's simple as that.
Tumblr, aside from being a shithole of deluded SJWs and hipster douchebags, is also home to hundreds of self-righteous thieves. Tumblr users have stolen so many images from people that many a Pixiv user have locked or deleted their Pixiv accounts because of this. Many tumblr users (and probably includes some of you) may claim that having a link makes the image looks uglier. If adding a line of text makes a an image uglier, you are fucking high.
There's no reason why you shouldn't link back to the original source. Artists put hard work into these images they they don't make a single penny off off, refusing to give them any attention in return is despicable. If you need to make excuses not to link back to the artist, you are an asshole.
Also fuck tumblr.
