This forum hardly got him recognised in the first place. Ozy and Millie had been appearing for 5 or 6 years previously anyway and it was because it was popular already that a fan forum opened and managed to keep going.
Err... not true. At one point, even, DCS was an active forum participant, and encouraged an onslaught of new membership. Then he started the flaming, and incendiary posts, and I happened to be moderating at the time. We actually almost banned DCS there and then for creating a hostile environment, and for disrupting the easy-going attitude DC has always had.

that's what he was saying. he was saying that Define Cynical didn't make OM popular, OM made Define Cynical popular.

I don't think he was implying that the forum somehow made O&M more popular but the fans, including those on the forum, are what made it popular.

David ignoring the fans (and fan forum) that got him recognized in the first place. Then calling the only fansite that exist just for his works a "toxic" place made me loose respect for him.

In that case we should be touted as amongst his most loyal fans, seeing as I don't know of any other "fan" sites that has people who were willing to admit they loved his work enough to create, join, and stay with a forum about it. Sure, if there are some other people out there that liked his stuff more then whatever, just that as far as I know "Define Cynical" are/were the ONLY fan-forum he has/had/lost.

There's a fan forum for I Drew This, and I believe it's still active even though that comic died years ago.

4chan just turned 6 years old yesterday. That was the joke I was making. Hell of a stretch, I know...

4chan's only 6 years old? O_o I thought you were referring to DC, because its 6th anniversary is sometime around now

DC turns 6 on Monday, true enough. I'd almost forgotten about that connection between 4chan and DC.

That comic was updated so infrequently they probably don't realize its no longer active.


That forum was fun though. Its a rare place where you can be accused of being a right wing nutjob simply by not agreeing with every and anything liberals say. You don't even have to agree with conservatives, simply not being super liberal makes you a right wing nutjob.

Unfortunately, from my experience, that isn't so rare :| especially living in the DC area. I've even been accused of (lets see how accurately I can remember the phrasing...) "close-minded religious bigot that should be institutionalized". When I responded "I think my boyfriend might take issue with that," she tilted her head and her eyes bugged ou, but no response. I at least was able to shut that person up for a bit.
