First of all, awesome work as usual, Ultra.porn. That badass Preacherbot is great, and I love the sheep/rams/goats. Especially Zoidberg and Fry.
Now, onto the flaming.
Blackkatnorn, you have made eleven posts in this thread, and none of them have had any quality to speak of.
First you made an ostensibly supportive comment, but it was really more of a not-too-subtle effort to advertise your thread. I don't doubt that you thought the first page was the only one, nor do I blame you for it. It happens. But even on the first page, he had quite a few replies about how awesome his art was was, so your sentiments would've been belated, anyway.
Then you posted to explain that other post.
Then you took what was obviously one of his favorite creations and drew some lame MS-Painted-then-Photoshopped version of it, once again trying to grab some attention for yourself. Just a few posts earlier, he'd told TheLampIncident and alexvilagosh that they could use any of his pictures as avatars, except
for the Leela octopus. He'd made it quite clear that he was especially fond and protective of that one, so it made sense for him to react the way he did.
Then you made some avatar buddy joke (someone going to pot-kettle me for that?), in barely legible chatspeak. Once again attention whoring in someone else's art thread. This is especially silly, since Smelly Cat joined in October, while you joined in December. Obviously her name and avatar exist to invade your territory.
Then you laughed at someone else's joking burn from a few posts earlier. It was the fourth time a comment like that had been made in this thread, so I think it was more along the lines of, "Ha, someone sort of made fun of this guy. My feelings are hurt, so I'll show my support."
Then you said something about how you wondered about your next rank (I think that's what you were talking about, anyway. You'll hit Delivery Boy when you make your 50th post, if you don't know) after he reached his. Is your hypothetical ascension worth spamming up Ultra's thread over? He posted in his own thread about how he actually did change rank. Much more justifiable. So, again, you were trying to get some attention in his thread, since no one's paying any attention to yours.
Now, on your seventh post in here, you expressly said something nice about Ulta.porn's art for the first time
. Then you flamed him and called him childish. Now, I don't know what he said to you on AIM (or was that comment just a preventative measure?), but, judging by the content of the posts before that one, I'd say you deserved it.
Then you made a new post to really hammer in your "childish" comment in a very childish way. "Oh yeah! Well! I was less childish than you when I was a child!" Yawn. People who make arguments like that need to grow the fuck up. Not to mention it's another not-too-subtle way of emphasizing how great you think you are in his thread.
Then it looks like you asked some friend of yours to join up and defend you. Her comment is worth addressing, too. This isn't how he treats people who compliment him. He's been nice or at least neutral to everyone else who posted in here, even the ones who criticized his work or speculated about what drugs he was doing. Most of the compliments he got were about how creative and unique his art was. You took one of those creative and unique designs and redrew it, hoping some of his popularity would rub off. Yes, yes, sincerest form of flattery. Some people believe that, but I'm more inclined to look at it as a case of trying to get noticed by borrowing his ideas, since no one would notice yours. I think Ultra.porn's octopus Leela looks a lot better than blackkatnorn's, but I guess that's doomed to be a matter of opinion. No matter whose you think looks better, it was his creation, and your version is an imitation.
Then you made a post dedicated solely to complimenting Cap'n Skusting's art. Kudos for paying attention to something other than yourself, but this isn't the place for that. Save it for Skusting's thread. Or do it in here if you must, but try to at least have a little bit to say about the art that's actually the thread's subject. You know, for balance. I don't know why you have some weird entitlement complex about Ultra.porn's thread. He's told you quite plainly that he doesn't appreciate your attention whoring in here. And I don't blame him for being annoyed by it. To borrow someone's criticism, it's just plain childish.
Then you asked about ooy. More on topic than your other posts in here, but too little too late. He's this kid
, by the way.
Finally, you made some confusing comment about intelligence being a virtue. I don't know what that has to do with anything, really, but yes. It is. So try to display some.
