Consider -- the information I provided to Tycho was FIRST provided to the ecartoonists mailing list. I shared it privately with Gav, with a friend over at PV comics, and with maybe half a dozen others who asked me how things were going (including, late in the day on the 14th, Tycho.)
Consider: Tycho asked you if he could publish the e-mail in something he was writing, and you knew it was going to be a smack-down on Keenspot.
It must be easy to be you.
Your answer strikes me as surprisingly similar to the people who put up websites of lists of names and addresses of abortion doctors, with strikethroughs of the ones who have been killed. Hey, they didn't kill the doctors. Somebody else would've told the real killers those addresses anyway.
99% of readers didn't care about the mud constantly thrown at Keenspot when you were here, either, but I seem to recall it being a problem with you then. Oh, wait, you said behind the scenes. No, my problem is in the scene, how glibly you feel about the negative publicity Keenspot's getting because of your leaving.Is there a problem? I mean, the negative publicity is easy to weather. 99% of your readers don't care how much you make. If there's infighting, back-biting, or harsh words going on behind the scenes at Keenspot, well, I'm pretty sure I didn't start it.
You know what? Tycho was wrong about the inferences he drew about how Keenspot handles affairs. You haven't acknowledged that, so I thought I'd tell you. You've been on the other side of this fence plenty of times, and now you don't seem interested in correcting it.
Yeah, it hurts somewhat. Not Keenspot, but me. You're telling me I'm wrong to feel that way, but somehow, it just does.
