It really is amazing when an artist throws a tantrum no matter the reason. The delusions of grandeur are pretty funny too. :allears:

Man I just want to read the comic. I don't really give a poo poo if Lazerbot himself is or is not a homophobe. Or any of his opinions - I just care about the comic he's writing.

Tell me more about this
"Wireless fun-adaptor" you were speaking of.

It seems the old catchphrase "goons ruin everything" still applies, you shouldn't have touched the poop and as it touched you, you should've just taken a shower instead of smearing it all over you.
Now you made the poop cry and maby it won't draw his comic for you anymore.

I didn't get any sense that he's going to quit drawing the comic. It just sounds to me that he's going to ignore us as an audience.

I believe in a universe that doesn't care, and people that do.




I really don't think anyone said or did anything out of line, and Lazerbot found this thread on his own if I recall. If Stan Lee showed up in the Spider-man thread throwing a tantrum, I wouldn't blame the goons.

No you don't because it wasn't BSS and it has nothing to do with the thread.

Stick to posting actual comic stuff people and leave the Facebook tantrums on Facebook. If Lazerbot wants to lurk the thread and moan about it that's fine, nobody needs to post about it here.

Kate Beaton - run out the forums by LF and YCS goons creeping on her.

LazerBot - read a calm and reasonable off-site discussion on a problematic issue issue in his work; furious.

The two aren't really comparable, LazerBot really needs to learn how to deal with critical discussion, SA is not his official fanclub site.

edit: ^^ sorry, starting writing before you posted that Waterhaul, this is the last I'll say on the subject.

What the gently caress, man. Of all the posts to throw a tantrum over, he picks one that's saying "lay off him guys, it's not like the end of the world?" And to go so far as to say he's disgusted to have this kind of fan? Using gay as a slur was just some unfortunate ignorance that I thought most of the posters were happy to forgive, but this is being a straight-up rear end in a top hat.

Welp, I don't expect Lazy B to be able to stay this agitated for long, but if being an rear end in a top hat becomes his new normal, I guess it's a good excuse for me to swap over to a Dangan Ronpa avatar.

To try and steer things towards something a little more positive, I refound some terrible Youtube videos that I discovered a few years back called "The Gmod Anime" that give me serious TGT vibes.

There's like 10 parts if I remember, I'm rewatching these and laughing my rear end off. It might do something for you, it might not, but it's something I feel is worth sharing with the thread.

On one hand, the style switch was kind of hilarious. On the other hand, it's like he's basically melting down because somebody at some point called him out on having certain viewpoints that weren't very good? I'm wondering if this entire thing is sort of getting to his head.

I mean, I can tolerate his weird-rear end opinions if he keeps doing funny poo poo, but the more drama starts leaking into the comic, the more awkward everything gets.

The overall tone of a lot of commentary about the gay stuff may have been politically correct but comes across as incredibly hectoring and condescending.

What is the best way to contact Lazerbot privately anyway? I'm not even sure if I do have anything to say to him, but if I did, I'm just curious so that I could do so without posting here and importing drama and derailing the thread, and I could just keep it to myself.

It seems like people are only talking to him through very public channels which creates lots of drama though.

Please don't refer to people who actually gives a poo poo about homophobia as SJWs, since that term generally refers to trans-asian otherkin Tumblrites and poo poo like that. It's kind of a lovely thing to call people who actually try to point out legit awful opinions.

Besides, nobody is getting served here, it's just kind of a bunch of crappy drama.

I'm just a bit on the wall about this...
It feels like Lazy took this way to seriously, it's hard to tell the tone people use when their writing but...it seems kind of angry to me. I think I've lost some respect for Lazerbot here....

He's getting far too cocky and that's gotta stop before he destroy's himself.

Lazy, let's get things straight here:
- This isn't a hug-box like DA/Face book. We can criticize your writing,art,etc.
- You not reading the thread is the best thing I've heard from you that wasn't a comic. Though I doubt that's true.
- I really do think your grammar is terrible, and that you should fix it, would it kill you to proof-read?
- I could care less about your views of gays, etc. Please drop it now.
- I respect an author that respects his fans. You called your fans stupid. why?

Uh. I'm thinking about this too much.
Can we please not post any more personal stuff on him...I really want to keep liking the comic. :(

Forgive me if this post is out of line (except Lazy, I could care less right now).
I need to chill my pill.

Considering the original mock-thread tone goons took to him, I don't really get why they're gratifying his deviantart diva thing. Even if you like artist meltdowns, this one is kind of sad and uncomfortable to watch. Hopefully he'll actually stop reading the thread and get over it.

I'm wrappin' it up for my poopoo game and youtube vids for now.

It's funny I bought an account to read this comment, so I wouldn't have to buy a DA account.
(I'd rather pay money than join that circle jerk pron site).
Seeing how this turned out, I'm glad I was able to find the creative convention thread. :unsmith:
It let me get the experience of posting art without getting circle-jerked. Something that's clearly happening to Lazerbot now.
Also can't forget about the mock threads. :P

The peeps on DA talk bad about this site because you have to pay (to support all the people) and that they'd get banned for their rule 34 and whining about "haters hate mai special art". So I just want to thank you right now SA and Goons. Thank you for saving me from that poopoo and giving me a place to develop as an artist. :)

It's a Dirt Devil!
Get it?

I think the problem here is that Lazerbot has some trouble dealing with his popularity. Remember, he most likely got bullied as a kid, so most of the times someone disagreed with him, it was in the context of a direct personal attack. Now that he got popular, many people now have a non-mutual connection to Lazy: they look up to him, respect him as an artist, love his work, etc. Especially with the help of sites like SA and Facebook, where he can read and interact with feedback and opinions of his fans, he never really understood there was a level of anonymity and respect to be had in them. He almost treated them like close friends, direct, open, and proud to have them. But when he noticed that a large part of his fans don't agree with his opinion, one he perhaps feels strongly about, he took it pretty personal, as if his friends betrayed him, or did something he'd be embarrassed about. He never quite got that fans don't have to be people who like you for who you are, but something you do. Likewise, he also failed to notice that fans can be radically different from him, yet still appreciate his work.
If anything, Lazy-B should be thankful to have such a mostly pretty chill following. Fans can have entirely different interests, so a lot of the time something they would see as a tribute could be oppose the creator's ideals and/or intentions completely and, more than enough, wander in very unsettling territory.
I mean, if I had a fanbase like Homestuck or Sonic I'd just break.
