Thanks for explaining yourself.
Nobody here hates anyone. We're just fed up with what's been going on and we want to do something positive about it.
You're welcome to join in and say what's on your mind. I'd prefer it if you'd remain respectful towards the other artists and supporters of what's happening. There's no reason for you to be so hostile simply because someone is venting their frustrations or is writing in abstractions. Everyone has their own way of expressing themselves. I delete messages if they become personally insulting or if the language is inappropriate. The messages you've been leaving prior to this are a prime example.
By the way, there are families throughout North America that are reading this message board and I'd appreciate it if everyone would keep this in mind.
Say what you've got to say. Stay aware from being so personally abrasive to other artists. You can voice any opinion you want about executives, but the simple fact of the matter is that a lot of people in this business don't like them and for good reason.
I don't blame animation executives per se for the state things are in. The fault lies with animation artists for letting it go on for so long. Infighting among ourselves has been a big contributing factor to the problem. Nothing is achieved by keeping this old behavior going.
You can save me a lot of deleting time and save yourself a lot of wasted effort at your keyboard if you leave messages as intelligent as the one I'm responding to.
