I'm confused. This guy, the illustrator and owner of "The Oatmeal" comics/cartoons, got sued because he threatened to file a lawsuit against a website that was illegally profiting off of HIS own comics/cartoons? How is that legal, or...

I love how Funny Junks lawyers first thought in light of the negative response was to essentially look for ways to shut down the fund raiser and away all of the over $100,000 donated (money meant for charity) and then actually entertaining the idea of taking legal action against the people who e-mailed him voicing their displeasure with the situation. Real class act he is.
That's without even mentioning the fact that Funny Junk actually was telling people to harass Inman (The Oatmeal) and had posted multiple ways of contacting him so that they could do so.

The administrator of Funny Junk is pretty ....ing greedy too, from what I've read. I've heard stories about him lying to his users about site traffic being low and urging people to upload more for more traffic. . Seems like a ploy to get more cash from views and adverts.

looks like Charles Carreon (lawyer for funnyjunk) not only feels that suing Matthew Inman is appropriate, but suing the charities that he raised money for too

I can safely say that Charles is going to be up there as one of the most hated human beings in existance. Sure, suing The Oatmeal is a little far, but the AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY!? ARE YOU ....ING INSANE!?

Yeah, Carreon's a major douche. This is why I don't like Funnyjunk. (Okay, other reasons, but this just validates my hatred)

But you know what? It doesn't matter that Carreon is an asshole because Inman made nearly eleven times his goal, $211,223.04. I mean, that's just so amazing. The National Wildlife Federation and the American Cancer Society are the real winners from this whole situation.

And this shall teach us all: Bear Love Good, Cancer Bad.

Anybody else think that's how Carreon sounded? (albeit with heavy wicked witch of the west influences)

Oh and Carreon's mom ....s bears.
