Goats News forum thread on Webcomic Rippers

Jon Rosenberg has a message for makers of webcomic ripper programs, “You All Suck.” I think Jon is also recommending that Comixpedia (and others) stop linking to examples of this trend. It’s something to think about as we’re not trying to promote the use of them per se (just wanted to meet my lawyer word quota for the day). However just to take the other side, as far as I can recall everytime Comixpedia has highlighted a particular program readers have convinced the creators of said programs to rethink their functionality and try to work with creators.

But I”ll definitely think about it some more. I will hopefully run into Jon at the upcoming SPXPo so maybe I can talk to him about it some more.
