I have read and re-read all the posts from deviants and admin regarding the submission agreement and have sadly decided to call it a day.
I care about the art I create and am unhappy at the scope of the rights granted under the submission agreement.
So, after great effort, I elicited the Fax number from the DA chat help room and faxed my Notice of Termination after having removed all my artwork. This Fax has been acknowledged as received by spyed -

Your notice has been received. Thank you!
comment, because you care.
share your kindness, not your hate.
love the art, before yourself.
meditate on this.

So both requirements for termination have been accomplished. Termination should not be so difficult - this only generates distrust.
I have enjoyed my time here and met some wonderful artists. I am sad to leave, but feel I have no choice.
Good fortune to you all.
