True. And then there's the flip side

Marvel's Joe Quesada:

It has never ceased to amaze me how some people, in defense of their favorite fictional characters or stories, treat creators and each other, flesh and blood people living actual lives with actual feelings and families, with such disrespect and cruelty as though they were two-dimensional, fictional villains who merely exist on a page or the imagination.

And it never has ceased to amaze me how some creators, in defense of their own creative product, treat long-time fans, flesh and blood people living actual lives with actual feelings and families, with such disrespect and cruelty, due only to honest disagreements over (story) direction, politics, and/or culture, as though they were two-dimensional, fictional villains who merely exist on a page or the imagination.

And by whom were Quesada's words retweeted? Yep, Dan Slott.

You just can't make this sh** up.

That's rich coming from Dan Slott the guy who tells Hobby Lobby supporters to go to "Christ-land" ... the guy who stalked a random woman online and made jokes about her life. The guy who has said all sorts of mean and nasty things about fans who just-so-happen to disagree with his politics.

Joe and his pals dump on fans for years, but as soon as someone fires back they start playing the world's tiniest violin.

Once again a classic case of comic writer narcissism.
Your good old pal Ron Marz is spewing his usual intolerance and hate again as well.

What a group of ignorant hateful people.

Fan: "I just didn't like the book and found it lacking."
Writer: "YOU SHUT THE F*** UP, YOU DISGUSTING INTOLERANT A-HOLE!"
Fan: "I find that comment offensive and obnoxious."
Quesada: "Hey, stop being cruel to that writer."
Fan: "But I was the one who was insulted and cursed at."
Quesada: "Shut up! Can't you see that writers are flesh and blood with feelings and family?"
Fan: "Aren't I also flesh and blood? And don't I have feelings and family?"
Quesada: "Shut up and be more respectful to others, you little snot."

What planet is Quesada living on? You have to be either completely ignorant or living on another planet to not see the poor behavior of Slott, Waid, Marz, Simone, et al. I'd go for the former.

Also, One More Day was just him projecting his divorce onto the character. Seriously.
