The people DEMANDING that an essentially useless feature be returned, goes beyond asinine.
The webcam was just a little thingy that allowed you to display a random image from the interwebs.
Never mind that the dA staff turns a blind eye to repeat plagiarists like HowlingNova being allowed back onto the site, or that they've made it more and more difficult to report art theft. No, lets bitch about a useless bauble being taken away instead!
Look, if you're that desperate to have random web image on your page, all you do, is edit your deviantID widget and add a single line of HTML. That's it.
