What they don't get is, the fighting and feuding between the developers, is what added to the thriving of the work. On top of the fan base, the arguing and rivalry's, no matter how heated, added the extra boost to making the next best thing for the fans and to try and be on top. I personally know that is how Randy viewed it and that's the way it should be. The people who are clinging to things spawned off of the internet over animated videos, seriously have no concept of real life outside of the computer. Your talking shit on a guy who left the community to go on and start a professional life and focus on his family. There's no need to hold grudges over pixels vs. original art work, when it comes to someone not being alive anymore. One day, his daughter is going to be old enough to google his name. She's going to find out her father had a massive fan base and reached a lot of people through his work, but she's going to have to try and comprehend the deep hatred and deliberately sadistic comments toward her dad as if the person knew him.
As far as I see, the characters were given their proper copyrights. Yes, we all know the characters, however the storyline and videos are soley from HIS mind, HIS doing. So where is the problem? The positive feedback from over million+ views, shows the video reached many. I don't get the negative feedback outside of anything, but jealous. It brought NG extra viewers and members, it motivated many to learn flash, etc. Every corporation is lawsuit happy, with all the years his videos have been on the net and the vast amount of views they all have, if the REAL OWNERS of the characters and images shared the negative views of the minority here, something would have happened already. They don't even care or agree with the negative outlook, why are people still such haters YEARS later?

I actually got a PM like that too that Randy should rot in hell. I think people fail to realize something that you know what you dishonor yourself by talking that way. How you speak and what you do determines who you become. I certainly don't want to be regarded as a scumbag who pisses on the memory of someone who died. Also I am certain most of you wouldn't want someone taking a virtual dump on your graves. The irony is that its me of all people who is actually defending Randy. I really never thought this would ever happen in a million years. But I do know its the right thing to do.
You guys seriously need to let it go. Its already 2012. I fought with Randy, DustinA31, Accana and many others for 7 years. Its unbelievable. And I would hope before the others die or before I do this shit doesn't have to go on much longer.
If some of you really can't look back and see how stupid your arguing was when he was alive and you can't even see how stupid this grudge is now that he is dead, when will you see it? Will you wait till you're 80 years old and going into the nursing home saying "Gee that Randy Solem guy was such an ass." I dunno I mean further trolling someone who is dead is just pointless. Trolling their family members while they are grieving is even worse.
