Warning: Remedial Comics

I've been meaning to post this up for awhile now. This is not so much a "doesn't pay" client as a "client with a bad attitude you should beware of."

The guy's name is Rob Tracy, writer of Remedial Comics, who goes by quikthnkr on deviantart.

I worked with him briefly before deciding that he was a little too picky for the pay he was offering. Then I ended up running into him again in February: http://flameraven.livejournal.com/273412.html

The reason I'm posting this now, is that he has yet again brought more drama to the table. He posts a spec ad on DA's Job Offers forum, which clearly states that the job needs to be paid; if not, it goes in Projects. Several people, including me, point this out to him, and he goes into full-on rant mode. Lulz ensue.

I will let his actions speak for himself: http://forum.deviantart.com/jobs/offers/1516790/

In short, don't work for this guy.


Update 10/05 Combining all the updates into one massive update here. So the day after the massive drama on dA, the one Rob gloated about winning, he apparently finds this post and gets upset, sending me a Cease and Desist e-mail (that was almost 3 pages long). Briefly worried and thinking he'd go away if I let things cool down, I locked this post and hid a few comments on my dA page.

Apparently this wasn't enough. On 10/3 he sent me another e-mail, saying locking the post so only "my friends" could see did not fit the C&D terms. He informed me that he'd be sending the legal documents out to LJ, dA, and a personal addressed he ripped off my resume. Any attempts by me to reason with him (like "nowhere do my actions constitute libel") have failed.

So the post is once again unlocked. Clearly I cannot reason with his vendetta against me. I tried, but failed.

I also found out last night that the post is also up on fandom_wank. Will he sue the entire Internet when he finds that post? Who knows!

Y'all enjoy the drama. I give up. ;)
