Sorry if this sounds a bit harsh but, I swear, I've seen something this happen before...

"Hey, Lazy-bot your comics pretty funny."
"Oh tanks."
"I just noticed that alot of the bad-guys seem to be gay."
"WHAT? Yur sying thst guy people shuld get spacial treatment!"
"Oh, no, I was just saying -"
"DO YOU KNPW WHO I AM? I'M LAZER-loving-BOT"

I'm a "Death of the Author" kinda person, so I don't really care what Lazerbot is saying on facebook or whatever. Haven't read any of that stuff. I only care about the comic. I guess if the comic itself had enough homophobic stuff to make me uncomfortable (or was bad otherwise), I wouldn't like it as much.

And I honestly don't care about Lazerbot's political views on things. poo poo, if Hitler made a hilarious webcomic, I would read it and probably enjoy it too.

I do wish Lazerbot would continue making the comic, but he really should just do whatever he feels like. This is terrible advice for artists but I don't think he should try to please anyone with his work. It seemed like he was making it for himself more than anyone else (at first at least). I don't know if it's a good idea to call his critics entitled, but at least I don't think I should have any say in what happens in Lazerbot's comic. I just appreciate the comic for what it is. I don't really see him as a serious artist so it doesn't matter to me if he's doing things "right".

Simply put, I love how uniquely and perfectly imperfect both Lazerbot and his comic are. I wouldn't change anything about either of them.

Speaking as someone who despises Death of the Author - this is loving Tails Gets Trolled. Lazerbot doesn't have to be a pillar of virtue or even an okay person to enjoy it. If anything, Lazerbot's many, many flaws enhance the experience.

I think you're referencing something I'm not familiar with, so maybe that's it, but nobody made this argument.
The problem people had was his attitude towards homosexuality outside the fiction. Nobody minds if there are Bad People in a story, or even if they're all from the same group (okay some people might mind, but that's because they'd make a connection to the author's attitude outside the fiction, and personally I think that's naive - if you're concerned about a person's personal views, go read their personal writing, not their make-believe).

I want to clarify, in light of a post that happened while I was typing, that this does not mean you have to be comfortable with or like what a story contains. I'm not saying Furry Guro Erotica has the same merit as everything else, for example

I mentioned it before - not as a complaint but I was just curious why most of the trolls seem to announce that they're gay right before they're killed. Could have just been a running gag. I'm sure it wasn't what set him off but I couldn't remember the exact comment - or if he ever even came out and said it. I'm pretty sure he called someone out on here personally though.

I'd say lock the thread - this one's way overdue for that anyway - and, if he makes any more comics, make a new thread, if we still want to follow him. We'd have to get a mod to lock it, I think, Nunez hasn't been around in ages and ages.

Even better that the original comic was posted on Deviant art. The site where 85% of the people can't take art criticism well, just like Hitler.

Hey, who knows - just because the thread closes doesn't mean the audio books have to stop. There's still plenty of material to cover.
If they never get made, I'm sure some terrible goons will try to it themselves and it will be truly terrible.

You did read "Tails Gets Gay" right? As canonical as it was to justify posting on tailsgetstrolled.com, even I feel a bit uncomfortable having posted it there.

So, uh: Lazerbot seems to have calmed down. He's responded positively to a few people on Facebook and complimented some fan art. He also posted that the "true fans won't have to suffer long" and that "it's not over".

So, SHOCKING NEWS: Lazerbot is prone to mood swings. Who would have thought?

To be fair, it's sort of a rite of passage that every real artist must at one point claim to hate their fans and say they'll never work again.

I am absolutely not surprised and I don't know why everyone was so quick to take him at face value and say WELP GUESS HE'S REALLY DONE FOR THE YEAR REALLY

More than likely he saw that fans were reacting as he wanted them to. He was probably hoping people would beg him to keep making it and now that people have mostly been like "ah well guess it's done" and started to move on, he wants to scramble and take back what he started.
