You can call me Oni~
Aye, it is bigger. I don't have anything personal against DA. I like them both (FA and DA). Just wanted to see if there was anyone else who agreed with me that DA's security wasn't any better haha.I think the difference here is DA is a lot bigger than FA, and stands to lose a whole lot more in terms of their user base should something like this happen to them. That alone makes it more likely for the DA staff to keep the hacking situations under wraps just to avoid the bad press that comes along with it.
FA, for having a much smaller and more intimate user base, probably did the right thing by making a public announcement letting us all know what was going on.
I think they did do the right thing. It's inconvenient if you are trying to get commissions or have a commission or two in the works and the artist needs to get ahold of, but can't. However, I'm sure we can all afford to have patience :3
