(member site in question is my new porn comic Id NSFW http://filthyfigments.com/preview/PREV_
okay, I don't pay for anything online either. I listen to online radio and read the samples but never actually buy membership for anything so I'm with you on that. Pot, kettle, black.
but sheeple? as in following a hurd, being a sheep, going mindlessly into stupid things?
like paying someone for their work?
insert snarkyness canned rant
sorry, it's just my house is falling down, my housemates aren't paying rent, I can't find new renters who will pay rent, the plumber AC repair man and roofer and mechanic who I've had to hire this week alone all expect to be payed and I'm trying to find ways to supplement the sales of books because the printer of the books also wants payment....so...I kinda figured that I'd follow the herd and see if, maybe, please, could I possibly be payed for my work as well?
I sell merchandise (that I have to pay to get printed) and go to conventions (that I have to pay for travel housing food table) but outside of the merchandise, I don't get payed for the 5 hours a day I spend actually drawing the comic.
crap, this isn't the point I'm trying to make.
because I, as a consumer, don't pay for the pictures I see on the internet or the information I get from it.
I'm not expecting people to pay for the comic strips of DP. I'm doing ID for the member site and it will pay for the work that the web host and organizer and I'll make some books. but again, off topic.
I'm just irked that an attempt to be reimbursed for work completed is viewed with scorn and ire.
It's expected that everything online should be free and if someone tries to get you to PAY for the art that is supposed to be free then they are a greedy villain.
Says the woman who canceled the pop up advertisement so she could log into livejournal and rant about not paying for things....ah, the irony, it oozes.
