Beware Wereandrewtiger

Or, “How not to get a commission ”:

This guy's a pest. He's already hit up [info]wolvar   [link] and[info]phantom_inker [Link ] and Others

Seems this character likes to hit up artists via IM and demand free art in broken english.

(18:06:48) cuprohastes Hang on though. You know I don't do these pictures for free?
(18:07:04) wereandrewtiger i have to go now bye

It occurs to me this guy just thought he’d IM me, spam me a pic and I’d do him some art (for free) and he’s considerably irked that I didn’t do it there and then. As soon as I can get it sorted, this guy’s being blocked…

HA! someone else he torments lol i feel yeah! he ims me like once every 6 months telling me he's Andrew, and how he wants to look at my gallery then asks for free art. if you say no he just doesn't reply and just vanishes.
i make fursuits so he always asks if i can make him one for free, or if i can draw him turning into a werewolf for free. he's really creepy weird.

guy is weird, he is also werewolves2009 on YIM too. iblocked him a while ago but he still ims me once in a while with different aims.

The funniest parts are when he goes "Andrew Rinaldi? Who he?" and tells me not to google his history.

Oh, HIM. He used to IM spam me all the time for free commissions. Usually backed up quickly as soon as I mentioned the word commission since, of course, he wanted free art, and yeah, gets testy if you don't do it.
I blocked him a while ago. (Actually forgot he existed until now XD;;; )

Unfortunately on Trillian and Digsby, you can't block someone unless you add them to your chat list and when you do that it sends out a message to the person asking if it's OK.
Of course Rinaldi doesn't OK it so you find that you can't block the son of a bitch.

Lol.
Apparently this guy is really really bad about this and has been doing it for years.
I've heard most just block him.
I have yet to ever have him IM me but thats because I'm never on messengers XD

This is almost laughably pathetic :}. I'm pretty sure I've heard his name before, but it's always good to have a refresher.

Most artists I've talked to know about him. I also ended up blocking him simply because the conversations were inane and disruptive - not due to specifically asking for free art. Considering some emails I've received, I would not be surprised to learn he's legally mentally retarded. It goes beyond simple bad grammar and social skills.

Hahaahaha oh man I have had nearly the exact same pair of conversations with that guy. Glad to know I'm not the only one because it was really weird.

This is precisely why I don't make my AIM name public.

Welcome to my world. *shakes head*

Just to bring you up to speed. His the biggest pesk in the transformation community to date in history.

Can someone PLEASE make it impossible for him to get back on to AIM again? By that, I mean sign his name up to a bot service that floods his screen with hundreds of AIM windows that will crash his system, or something. I remember back years ago that someone managed to do that but to this date I havn't been able to find anything of the kind yet.

Yep, the guy hit me up as well, and actually got mad when I said I don't draw him for free. Sent me the image as well.
He seems to hit up anyone who's even remotely good and is like CAN U DRAW ME AS DEER!?

Being the mean person I am, I'd tell him I'd do it for him. Then, send a picture of his face on some horrible internet lulz picture.
