And yes, I understand the point behind the term "spastic". Which is why I can refer to my comment earlier. I was saying that American English derives many words from old english. The same goes true that we can also downplay words that was quite rude.
In no way was I trying to justify Ramyb's title.
No, I understand that's what you were talking about. My point was just that spastic as an adjective isn't really offensive to an American, same thing with those meatballs. Some things are going to be taboo in one culture and acceptable in others, whether they share a language or not. Like somebody said higher up in the thread, we're separated by a common language.
As for his art, I'm not exactly a fan. I won't say that he's breaking any rules, but his art just isn't appealing to me. Not to mention I'm quite suspicious of his and seki's "ethics" when it comes to things I've heard, researched, and dug up about them.
Somehow, I'm not the only one either. Check out the recent reckoning recon.
That's fine as far as I'm concerned. I'd respect people more if they just came out and said exactly what you just said, instead of trying to find reasons why each and every one of his entries should be rejected, whether warranted or not. I'm not defending his art, accusations of lifting concepts, or any questionable antics on other sites, conventions, etc. I'm just saying, if people dislike his art then say it directly (which some people do), instead of saying something like "Oh, he drew a dog sipping soup, that's the same as this shirt with a bird eating a steak".
I'm fine with most of Adder's comments on this site (even if I don't agree with a lot of it), because he doesn't beat around the bush and I always get the impression that he believes every word of what he's saying.
