The Equal Opportunity Offender


January 1st, 2010

This fellow is a Grade A Douchbag. @ 03:16 pm


I saw this post on a friend's journal.

You know, if you don't like dA, don't dis the artists.  You being a writer, yourself, should understand this.  You can complain that the majority of art on DA is amateurish. Because most of the people on the site Are. Not. Professionals. They never once claimed to be. And if you look at their registration information, they don't require a portfolio OR references. It's an amateurish site to show off people's work in the SAME MANNER that YOUTUBE AND FLICKR, two sites YOU quoted, allow people to show off their 'amateurish' videos and photos.

If you want to see good, higly acclaimed art, you go to a famous art museum like the Musée du Louvre.  Kinda like if I wanted to see good, decently technical information, I would not read 'techcrunch' who's writers seem to think it's okay to belittle artists, and also thinks Youtube is full of "compelling" content.  (Could you have possibly picked a worse site to use as an example of compelling?)


Complaining about the damn site is one thing, but picking certain pics and artists is really going too far sir. Seriously, does TechCrunch actually pay you for your mediocre opinions? Then he posts his update, obviously incapable of taking the same damn criticism he gives, with even more vitriol. You, sir, are worse than the people you are belittling. At least those people are bringing something beautiful in the world. All you're giving us is the same old, same old internet prickishness that we're all sick and tired of.

"This was nothing more than a 2AM post marking a milestone which was repeatedly hyped to me by the company, but was terribly anti-climactic when I actually saw what it was."

And you're a professional writer? Do tell.

Look at it from this side; This guy is getting paid to write an article that barely ascends the quality of the average Livejournal post, but Khaos should keep her work hidden from the world? He's an ignorant hack.

Also, there were several comments disagreeing with him and he's deleting them all. Classy!

Also note: The implicit homophobia of highlighting that the one-millionth Deviation was a gay sex story. Once again, a professional writer?

I bet that the one-millionth Youtube upload was a hundred times worse, whatever the gay-level of it was.

what the ... He bashes DA then uses an old old print Khaosdog, who is EASILy one of the best artists out there, to prove his weak ass pethetic point?

The fact alone that he used an old print shows how poor his credibility is. Not to mention if you bitch about something on the internets, people are going to flock to whatever you're bitching about. Thanks for the free publisity, moron!

It's The Washington Post. Most of the "lifestyle" writers for that paper are uptight pricks. *is a Washingtonian and sees this crap from them everyday*

This is exactly why it made me so upset too, but you said it better than I ever could have.

Even better is the fact that 4 people commented negatively about the article, then he had comments closed so that no one else could show him up publicly on the site for being the massive prick that he is.
