: It is the you, the animators who let this situation get out of hand.
: Instead of crying and complaining that it's the executives fault DO SOMETHING about it.
: There's have been a lot of hype over the protest on April 1st. Well April 1st has gone

This last comment made me wonder: What if all the artists in the animation industry just...stopped? Imagine the "house of cards", i.e. all other industries that are dependent on animation for their survival, in a big heap. All the Marketing, the Consumer Products, the tie-in related products (shoes, clothes, toys)... Imagine everything that's taken for granted. It makes ya think.
