There usually is a difference.

If you're a good enough troll there usually isn't.

I've been bottling a lot lately. Feels good to argue with someone, even if they are a brick wall reincarnated into the body of a slug that found a keyboard.

Huh, if you don't check in on the BBS daily, you seem to miss important things.
Very proud of you guys for taking action against these art theives. I wish I could've helped us win this Newgrounds victory.


Not only do I not know what's going on, I wouldn't know what to do about it if I did.

I swear you guys are almost as stupid as the occupy wallstreet mob and just as thuggish. If I were them, I would actually be suing this site for harassment due to admins encouraging hate. That right there, would turn the lawsuit inside out. Good job morons, good job.

Wait wait wait wait wait, wait, wait ...wait

...wait.

A guy wearing snow goggles? I thought it was a robot? Utah, you lied to me again!

Also, hateyou1, you're only making yourself look foolish by your posts here. The things you're suggesting are entirely improbable, as well as being provably false, and then you're throwing your hands in the air claiming "nobody has all the facts." A retarded monkey could do a better job defending FADED than you, and considering I'm pretty sure that's actually what you're paid to do, that's pretty sad. Please, just quite while you're not so far behind.

ANYWAY

I'm about to sign off from the Internet for 6 days, minus the occasional visit here and there to save/blam some things and keep my experience rolling. In my absence, it's the job of you fine folks to pick up where I've left off: when a new ripped-off party is revealed, contact them with a direct link to the item in question and just simply say that you've found something that's ripping off their work, that almost 100% of the company's merchandise is from stolen designs and this one happens to be theirs, and you just thought they'd want to know. Contact the various social media outlets they have accounts with and inform them of the business practices of FADED, and point out to them that this probably isn't the kind of company they want to be affiliated with. Do what you do evenly and politely - you're just providing information - and then move on.

If I somehow receive a response from one of the companies I've contacted, I'll drop in here to let you guys know, but I won't be keeping up with the thread. Always remember...

He'd have to be a damned good one. Usually, the easy answer is the right one. He's an idiot.

Oh so apparently every person who acts like an idiot is a troll?

And like it matters? I like arguing on the internet, it's fun.

Suspicious indeed, especially since his view on copyright infringement used to be quite different.

Is any civil action being taken against this company?

I REALLY want them wiped off the face of this earth, and all their douche/scum-bag selves. Seriously Johnny, this is your artwork so you should really come to a decision if you want to take legal action.

The direct link to the shirt appears to be invalid, and I cannot seem to find any instance of it in their store anymore.

legal action costs a lot of money...
but publicly harassing and shaming them into submission is FREE :)

Eh some people (like me) get their kicks from arguing. It's fun, regardless of whether or not the person in question is a troll.

Oh hey look, they also ripped off Tide.

Also, I've noticed that there are only two fanpics (1 2) and both are of the same guy.
Only fan? Or part store owner?

Twitter links don't work. You have to do some crappy crap, not just copy/paste whats in the URL box.

You have to take the "#!" out of the URL, or it just redirects you to the home page.
