Too bad the talkbacks aren't real. Stephen Worth would have already logged in 5,000 words.

and all the replies to those words would be smartass insults that avoid answering any of his points.

Because it is impossible to answer his points. It's like playing tennis against a ball machine. He wears everybody down sooner or later.

Lest anyone think this John K. spoof is too mean, behold the real deal (From an Eddie Fitgerald talkback post) -

"The kinds of writers we get in animation are hacks and we don't need them at all. They are in the way.

Anyone can write the crap that they cram in the formula scripts we get in animation.

Might as well give that extra money to the artists and let them write their own stuff. Some artists will actually show writing ability and make memorable cartoons that last 50 years and more-like the writers of the Warner Bros. cartoons. They were all artists.

The bad artist writers will not be as bad as the non-artist writers that parasitize us now."

Hey, comment deleted.

I'm sorry you did that, actually. (I get the posts as they come through via Email)

Feel free to post here, anytime, any point.

P.S. And for the record, yes. You are not the only one.

Well, I was under the impression the thing I quoted was about John, not about Stephen. So when I read it again after posting, I realized my mistake and decided to delete it. It might've been interesting to read for some, but it doesn't entirely fit in the discussion :-). If you feel it has merrit, feel free to copy the text from that e-mail and post it again.
