why the only thing worse than Radium's coding is Zak Smith, the rapist and pants shitter's, basic sense of ethics

So fun fact, all the smilies have titles that I don't know if there's a way to see them in the forums. When I went in to create the original : zak : i just copy/pasted the : shrek : smilie.

Anyways, turns out the title to that had racism in it. Not like kinda racist, it was the loving n-word.

This happens often enough that "load bearing racism in the code" has become kind of a meme among the mods and admins.

Anyways that's gone now because lol hell no I can change this right now.

I believe those show up as the tooltip if you hover over a smilie on the smilies page. The one for :shrek : is now empty, the one for :zak : is "Zak S, pants shitter and abuser."

Elector_Nerdlingen posted:

I'll admit that I was a bit confused too.

So I googled the name Zak S. There are ten results on the first page. All but one mention that Zak S. is, or is alleged to be, a rapist and an abuser. The other result is a twitter account that seems to just irregularly post bad art and worse takes but nothing about being a rapist and an abuser, so that's probably the person who's complaining about people saying that the Zak S. referred to in the search results that are about how Zak S. is a rapist and an abuser, is a rapist and an abuser.

OK, I think I see where the confusion comes from: I get similar results from "Zak S" and "Zak Sabbath", but "Zak Smith" - who is the same alleged abuser and rapist as these other names - includes about three or four links to this person's work in the world of fine art, which is pretty laughable given that his schtick wears really thin really quickly and could probably be reduced to a Photoshop filter fairly easily.

I'm not sure that isn't what happened already, looking it.

Not that anyone's dared to mention. His last RPG credit was 2018.

He's still being allowed to harass people in the Demon City Kickstarter comments, and replies critical of him are being deleted, so I can only assume Mike Evans is still working with him.

Despite, you know, backers telling him that they're going to refuse shipment of rewards since they can't get a refund and would rather burn his work than own it.

Just like how it's implicit that all of Zak's pants are stained brown to below the knee and he smells like a waste treatment plant. Plus, we all assume he either doesn't believe in deodorant, has some truly terrible choices in cologne or both, right?

My favorite part of these comments is the guy who starts off being sort of sympathetic to Zak and then slowly realizes he's talking to a malignant narcissist

Zak S/Zak Sabbath/Zak Smith is definitely the sort of person who thinks cologne (or, as he would say, Axe Body Spray) is just as good as a shower. He also believes Febreeze is fine when you can’t be hosed to make your handicapped partner do the laundry.

A thought. Zak's tactics against Ettin are very clearly designed to cause maximum shame and humiliation and drive him out of communities that supported him in the past. I would imagine the terms of the settlement (probably themselves under NDA and subject a no-disparagement clause) require this post to stay up for a certain number of weeks. Zak almost certainly hopes Ettin will be too humiliated to return after that.

gently caress that. Ettin, if you're reading this at all, this thread should hopefully make it clear just how much contempt the goons have for the Pantshitter-General. You've been the target of a vile piece of litigation through no fault whatsoever of your own. We want you back.

personally if I were an abusive rapist who routinely rips heavy rear end into his own pants I'd probably not keep picking fights that involve letting the people who know about my abuse, surprise sex, and pants ruining habits to go 'actually gently caress you you lying abusive garbage monster I hope you die alone and miserable'. Hypothetically.

The fact that Mike Evans has not told Zak to just shut up in these comments means he's just as culpable as Raggi, despite trying to present himself as a neutral party.

I could've sworn some Kickstarter collaborator of Zak's was like "look, I can't kick him out and I can't just scrap this whole thing, but I wash my hands of this bullshit and I'm sorry." I guess that wasn't this Evans guy, though? Or did he change his mind thanks to Zak's amazing ability to poo poo all over a comments section as if they were his pants?
