A visibly upset Aeire was quick to respond to the comments of the Comic Nation staff:
"To those wondering what happened - these guys put my comic on a ratings site without asking my permission or bothering to check and see if that was okay..." "...I hear about it and send them an email saying that I would like to be removed from their list as I don't want to be on a ratings site. It was polite, it wasn't 'bitchy', it was a request..."
"They refused to take me off. They flat-out said no." "...Words were exchanged, my comic was removed, eventually, after an undue amount of hassle on my end that could have been spent working on my "sucky piece of comic shit", as he so eloquently put it..."
"...They informed me that they were taking the ratings system off of their website and attempted to wheedle me into staying by doing so, I told them flat-out that frankly after dealing with their 'staff' I had no interest in being affliated with their website, ever, and I didn't really care if it was a ratings site or not at this point."
"...I was told back a week or two ago or whenever it was by a close friend of mine that my comic was back on their list again, so I sent them an email asking them to remove it and telling them that I had no wish to affiliate with their website. They sent me a reply very quickly and said they would look into it, and then sent me another a little while later apologizing and saying that my site would be removed, and it was. I was at that point quite impressed with the amount that their 'customer service' had matured and was pleased to note that I didn't have to argue, and was happy."
"So now I look on Websnark and see this thing, and I was about to make a comment and let you know, quietly, that my website would not be on their list."... "...And then I see this bullshit post on their forums. Hey wow guys. Way to be mature. Way to be 'professional'. "... What the shit. What a bunch of petty, disgusting, immature children..."
"...You've just guaranteed that I am going to tell everyone I know in the industry about your petty bullshit. Way to go there buddy."
