My apartment has been between 76-78 for over a month and a half now. No AC at all, as it went out in late August. Still has not been fixed. We open the windows and run ceiling fans which helps a bit.

But don't you see the title is a huge problem? Here we have a rather important topic that is rather complicated with no easy solution and articles like this only help polarize people before they even click it for the sake of clicks.

The wording of the article could also be better though it does a decent job, other articles however can be extremely one-sided and null the point for a majority besides the ones looking for confirmation bias.

This is the real issue here which no #metoo hashtags are going to help in.

I've been contemplating on whether I should post this, as it contains some sensitive material. However, when it comes to topics that are as serious as this, I feel that this needs to be known/heard.

I found that post to be quite offensive, especially after reading the article and going over every salacious detail for educational purposes.

They really shouldn't allow for stories like that to be shared. The Internet is no place for such...filth.

The temperature of office spaces? That's about as important a topic as which way around the toilet paper should hang.

As someone who'd always kind of wished to legitimately work in animation, Nick is one of those top places a nothing like me could really only ever dream of. Was there any chance in hell of getting into those doors, that is angering and appalling that someone like that guy was sitting in that place and doing the crap that letter talks about. To mistreat people and screw with their career choices like that, by either threatening to get them blacklisted as the previous article said, or make someone AVOID taking a excellent opportunity for their career because he's there...

If a hell were real, there would certainly be a special place in it for him.

Cartoon Brew have since been trying to guilt fans and people still working on the show, saying that supporting a show inspired by the life of a sexual predator amounts to an untenable situation. When fans spoke out on their comments section, the 'Brew promptly started deleting anyone's voice that was critical of their attempts to shame anyone still finding enjoyment and creativity out of the show.

Amid being P.O.S isn't really surprising but its an extra layer of dumb if he thinks cancelling a successful show is a good idea just because its creator is a shitbag not only are you going to disappoint the fans but a lot of people are going to lose their jobs becuase of the cancellation. Ending the show word do more harm than good but Amid wants to act like a virtue signaling douche.

Talking about "separating creators and creations".

Nah, if it is a hit for Nick as I've heard, don't end it just because of this one assbag. Even if he did come up with it... just wash the hands of him and continue without him. He won't have any say in the future of it or what they choose to do with it, it's ultimately Nick's show. Even a cruddy person can still have at least one good idea. Take it and run with it and let it be his loss thanks to his choices. (He just better not make another cent from it in the future...)

I've never watched the show, is it good? I've seen so many people complain about this show I had never heard about on twitter.

I did see that CartoonBrew was blocking anyone who disagreed, such a lame and proven unsuccessful method, it only makes people go against you. If the show is successful I doubt they'll cancel it, and if Chris Savino was really that big part of the show the show will fail without him anyway without any boycott.

Separating the artist from the art is really subjective, I can do it for many things but there's a few exceptions and that's the same way for most people no matter how much they say they can do it or can't. I mean we all have to deal with it because we're all human and make stupid decisions, we wouldn't enjoy anything if we judged the person that's doing this fun enjoyable stuff.

It's even a decent apology.
I'm kind of impressed!

Yeah, at least better than some others in the past.


Only part that bugs me is the whole "never my intention" thing. Come on... if you're an adult human being, there are some things you shouldn't have to be told. Respect and boundaries is one of them. Where did you miss that lesson, Mr. Savino?

I personally thought it was good, it has a few gross out humor here and there but I personally think its a solid series
