Someone I’ve never heard of got upset that he wasn’t pampered enough by the Pulse, and so he decided to attack Jen Contino at comicon.com. He doesn’t understand the message board format, attacks those who don’t sympathize with him, criticizes Jen for not keeping track of his werewolf series (of which he seems to have published two issues in three years) during a time she was dealing with the lingering death of her grandmother, and obviously doesn’t understand what a bad reputation he’s creating for himself.
