    I've never even heard of theoatmeal before this. God damn I am oblivious.

    Actually, people should stop shitting their pants over something so trivial. It's the internet, and I understand people make a big deal over stupid shit (Such as the Miami Cannibal incident) but honestly. People take comics to and from all sorts of different websites. I also don't find either's comics very funny. (Like so, it's only my opinion.) I think they should just drop it. It's some so stupid to fight over. This, in it's own right, is exactly what religious people do when they fight. It's completely stupid.

    Did you read the article?
    He didn't care about people re-hosting his comic really.
    Funny junk actually tried to sue him for pointing out like 2 years ago
    that they make money of other peoples work.

    Oh wow according to that article the lawyer not only mis-interpreted the drawing to be of his mother (clearly was directed at the FJ creator), but he thinks he is responsible for people calling his number? Now I don't know where he gets that from. As far as I can tell, people are just as pissed as Inman. So they're backing him up by their own choosing.

    I can't fucking stand how serious people take comments on the internet sometimes, I mean, he seriously is taking what these people are saying seriously? It's angry people on the internet saying stupid shit they can't act on. This is obviously someone who isn't in contact with what the internet is like, and is somehow representing FJ on an issue... ABOUT THE FUCKING INTERNET.

    I agree no one should bat an eyelid when their comic gets stolen, their branding and website taken off and then reposted on another website in order for that site to get hits, it's all perfectly fine.

    FunnyJunk pulled down the linked images, but there's still this:
    http://webcache.googleusercontent.co...&ct=clnk&gl=uk

    Seeing as how it has the page views, isn't trying to remove it a wee bit vain and pointless?

    Also, if any of you are well versed in law, doesn't Oatmeal guy have to respond in some legal way? I mean, there's no way this shit will fly in court, but he can't just say "fuck you" and leave it at that can he?
    His lawyer replied to FunnyJunk in a formal matter.

    So was there an actual attack on that website? Because I'm pretty sure people taking the law into their own hands and making raids or attacks is only going to cause Inman's case to suffer.
