I'll make something else now...

For the record I am indifferent to the software. I have no problem with people wanting to create animation with it for fun as long as those with loftier ambitions aren't letting their skills stagnate. I spent a lot of time with 3D movie maker as a kid because I didn't know how else I could create animation and I really wish I had discovered flash sooner. Brad Bird began his first animated film at 11 years old so you're never too young to start!

So please remember that my animated counterpart is a caricature in more ways than one; I didn't really jump on a horse when Skyrim was announced and I'm not about to go postal on someone who wants to use some gimmicky animation software, just consider the alternatives.

Great stuff as always, and there are some who would've benefitted greatly from reading your description (the YouTube vid "Harry Partridge gets served" comes to mind). It'd be great if you also made mention of the alternatives, perhaps in the closing credits. Yeah, everyone loves Flash (I don't really) and ToonBoom, but Pencil is an often overlooked freeware program that is really simple and easy to use (without a user interface designed for children). Synfig is surprisingly powerful as well (also free!); designed for the popular "cut-out" style, whereas Pencil's focus is the traditional (tradigital?). My point is that many fledgling animators make the mistake of seeing a video they like that's really popular and think that having every single piece of equipment the artist owns will grant them the ability to do the same. They mistake tools for talent, and are often discouraged when presented with any program with a mild learning curve. I'm still waiting for the day when people get out of this mindset of "I must own Flash and a Cintiq to be a decent animator," and like you said, consider the alternatives.
