I only intended to keep this banner up on the message board for a short time. I’ve since changed it.
Yes, it was a shot back at him after his “C-Spaced” comment, however I tried to make it as classy as I could. He did post a big long thread that he’s leaving the message board..again…so I thought how do I use the words “Space MB” with Slott. It was just a natural.
Thank you to all the folks that have my back, both Zeta, Delta and everyone in between. In looking back at the situation I have nothing but sadness for Dan Slott and the whole situation. I really wish he could be part of this community. It’s a blast here and it has been for 12 years. I wish we had the Slott that first posted on the board that said how he’s a life-long fan. He showed off his first issues and how much he loved the character. I also wish we had the guy who I interviewed on the podcast a couple years ago. He was such a nice guy and I thought it awesome we had a pro on the board talking Spidey.
Two years later we have a guy that pops up every few months to just zone in on the negative comments. He will chime in say the site is negative, leave only to come back a few months later to rinse and repeat.
We have a person that makes sure to take post shots at the site whenever possible even after I said it’s a personal insult. I’ve told him numerous times that the writer of Spider-Man always takes some flack. If they’re not talking about your work then there must be something wrong. I wish he could understand that fact.
I’ve been incredibly busy this week with work and with the upcoming baby preparations so I haven’t had a chance to monitor the board as much as I ‘d like. I’d like to personally thank all the admins on the board. Specifically Kevin who is above and beyond outstanding at his non-paying job. Why a dude would put up with personal pot shots and constantly having his judgments questioned and not get paid for it is beyond me. He is a true friend of mine and of the site.
To the regular visitors of the site, don’t let this get you down. We all love Spider-Man and I do think Mr. Slott does too. However, he has some issues like we all do in accepting criticism and owning up to doing something wrong. I honestly don’t think Farmernudie is Mr. Slott and I agree that Slott owned him an apology for claiming his posts were not his own. However, condemning this site and not taking responsibility is just wrong. You would think after writing a character that is all about responsibility would have rubbed off on him.
