I just got a warning from a forum moderator on GaiaOnline that telling someone who was bashing someone’s idea in Site Feedback, “…and I don’t see many “we” here. It’s mainly you being a presumptuous pompous-ass who knows nothing about the history of Gaia, nothing about the artists, or pixel/digital art for that matter,” is flaming, when the person I was addressing did 10x worse.
Oh well. GaiaOnline never has to worry about me defending their staff or providing or encouraging the contribution of free ideas to their community again. The next time they want anything from me, they’ll have to pay for it, and not in virtual money. If this is how artists in the community get treated, I’d recommend that others adopt the same attitude towards them that they have towards us.
That reminds me, I need to make a copyright note in my contest.
