Feel better, slamming someone who actually works hard to see the best in everyone he encounters? Lance stood up for you many many times. He's given you the benefit of the doubt even when you threw that benefit straight in the dumpster. He knew you were involved with the ICC formation and kept it a secret when other creators swore they'd never work in any project you were involved in.
You constantly claim how you hate slander and libel, how you despise name-calling; just a few post earlier you jump on your soapbox and complain about how 'Obviously all this thread is has to do with bullying, pissin' and moaning'. Yet you've called Lance 'mealy-mouthed' on your blog, 'lil buddy' here, and taken potshots at almost everyone else. How much lower can you possibly sink? When do your own rules begin to apply to you?
You've also said my Daphne was 'out of her league' when dealing with you. Well, I'll give you that one. She's got integrity, honesty, intelligence, compassion. Yeah, she's way out of her league when dealing with you.
I've talked to you a lot over the past couple years, Rick, but I never realized just how petty you are. I never once realized the lateness of Tales of the Spooky was because of more payment woes. But here you are, still proudly announcing its impending publication as if it were something to be heralded. You hide behind nonsense legalities and pompous righteousness so that you always come out the injured party when the slightest shred of obligation should point the proper path of action clearer than the Lighthouse of Alexandria.
You can't avoid paying what you offered payment for. That's the bottom line, Rick. You've admitted you owe people money for services rendered. All you're doing now is delaying the inevitable, as if you're hoping we'll get so sick of asking we'll eventually give up.
I'm officially sick.
I ain't giving up.
