Just so you know, according to sources godofodd and realitysquared --

- Deviations saying you dislike a member [or their art apparently!] are against the rules (see: my stamp removal, AwesomeLurker's ban) but not officially [except screencaps] as according to the ticket I made.
- Journals and comments calling people out are against the rules [see: butthurtbrigade's removal] and also not [see: I-Call-Bull still being around despite doing the same things].
- Journals are considered deviations [throughout the site and for "reposting deleted content"], but also not [being referred to as separate from deviations in my ticket]. They are equal to deviations in regards to content, but also not as you can possibly maybe who knows really post call-out journals whereas you can't post call-out deviations.
We try to allow users to express their opinions and beliefs freely, but we do draw a line at personal attacks. .... As I've said previously, we're removing content that is considered direct, targeted abuse or harassment, specifically aimed at individual users. ....[but, when I linked to journals and deviations personally attacking me and to ICB...] We are not actively looking at our policies regarding "call out journals" at this time [which contradicts what was said in realitysquared's journal] .... We review reports on a case-by-case basis. .... You're welcome to continue reporting journals and deviations that you feel are abusive and we will review them and take action where it's necessary.

So in other words: Nothing has changed. If you're on the shit list you're still going to get shat on, except this time they can defend it because LOL RULES CHANGED (FOR YOU).

Ah, yes, the big cheeses of dA doing what they do best...which is defend the little people who have thin skin and get their poor little tender tiny feelings hurt by the smallest things.
