Art Theft Website  
Yeah, this stuff again. The site is Anime Galleries, and I've seen quite a bit of uncredited stuff in there, including the FMA Kitties. It's not so well arranged, I ran several searches, and didn't recognize everything, but I did find a couple of offenders...

This was the biggest one, with the FMA kitties and several other pieces I recognize at least vaguely.

This has one I recognize and a few that look like fanart from somewhere or another.

This has just a couple familiar ones.

I know there's things I didn't catch, though... Any rate, the site's TOS does state that claiming someone else's work is against the rules (in here). There's pretty specific guidelines for reporting in there.

"and gives you 10 megs of space for your own albums, so you can store your image work, and share it with others."

The idea is that the galleries are supposed to be for fanart (I doubt a single user has their own fanart in their galleries), and art is posted by the owners, who can then control the use of it.

Also, the art is not credited back to the original user (outside a few I found that were clearly swiped from dA or other sites that store the image using the title and artist name).
