  Comictastic: An Open Letter to Web Cartoonists
The creator of the comictastic comic-strip viewing software (which lets you get around all the moneymaking plans those awful greedy web cartoonists throw at you) has posted an open letter to web cartoonists, and as you might expect, he totally come off like an evil Dutch space pirate.

In conclusion, the choice is yours. Either you can spend your time and money fighting people like me and my users, or you can embrace what I believe to be the future of webcomics, and work with me for everyone's benefit. People want this technology; don't deny them that.

You're either with him or against him, cartoonists! Not only does he want to totally ruin RSS by encouraging people to put ads in it (if people wanted ads, no one would use his software) and then tries to pass off a program that automatically downloads strips daily, which is a wee bit damaging to strips that follow the Modern Tales model of offering today's strip free and charging for archives as just a 'specialized web browser' to boot. And while you can't pester people for money for your comic, he can pester people to register his software! But that's okay!
