And Facebook pretty much does exactly what Mev counsels with most of those complaints, don't they?
The difference also between Facebook and tOdd, is that FB is making MONEY. Their model worked, and to some extent it works because there are people for advertisers to reach.
tOdd is sharing that his model did NOT work. He made a bunch of toons, he did a bunch of clever stuff, and he lost money on the site, month after month. So regardless of how much the Deng violator loved the stuff and is now pissed that it's gone, well - it's like bitching about the loss of a favorite TV show, ain't it? If no one else was watching and therefore no advertisers wanted to spend money on it... it gets cancelled.
Now, presumably everything tOdd did on the site is what ultimately got him all that other work and maybe it's not fair to segment the site as a financial loser without giving it some credit for the ABC toons or whatever, and maybe we should be looking at the TOTAL profitability of OT Enterprises writ large, but the bottom line is that businessman Todd Rosenberg has gotta go where the money is, and where people are willing to compensate him for his considerable talents.
Or put another way, "What do you want Deng asshole - for tOdd to starve while making cartoons for you?"
That said, any expectation that the rant at the top of this thread would actually stop such a character is ridiculous. But tOdd knows that.
