I knew it.  You do realize that blaming other people for your own
failings is extremely immature, right?

You forgot about Doctor Mood, not me.  And you forgot that days had
passed, not hours.  You have this tendency to blame other people for
your own mistakes.  That's what five-year olds do.  Most people grow
out of that stage and assume responsibility for their own actions.

Please.  I haven't read much at all by Grant Morrison.  I though Mr.
Morrison was going to be Jim Morrison.  And for this you insult me?
For Heaven's sake, grow up!

That's a lie.  You used Googlemesh without asking permission first.
Period.  And then you and Andrew neglected to inform me when you
started making plans involving Googlemesh.

It's only offensive to somebody who has the mind of a five-year old.

No guilt?  You don't feel guilty about acting -by your own admission-
like a "dick"?

What you neglect to tell people is that I have sent you e-mail asking
you what your problem with me is.  I frankly still don't know.  Based
on what you've said,  am apparently too "reasonable".

Like I said, you can just kill Googlemesh off.  I am not the least bit
looking forward to seeing the hack job you will do on the characters I
created.  (It's Google LAD, not Google MAN.  Google Man was his

In the future, if you want to use ANY of my characters, please ask.  I
will say "No".

Martin... extremely pissed off now
