(in response to orth1994.deviantart.com/journa…)

So, :icontroyhoward: has been banned, and already we are getting a shitstorm of major proportions.

Right now, many people believe that he didn't "abuse or attack people" and that it was just a "little game" and that they were "eyewitnesses" to the event.

Guess what?

You're all a bunch of fucking liars.

His "game" was nothing more but a failed attempt at getting free fanart.

He did happen to abuse and harass people by threatening them to not only draw troll art of their character, but also mentioned that he would do "worse things" if his requests were not met.

But hey, if you don't believe me, just take a look at these screencaps.

Totally not harassing people there, am I right?

Again. Please fave, comment, and copy and paste this onto your page. We need to spread some truth.

Don't worry your ass about Troy anymore! He was here when several HTF fans got into it with chamynutty back in 2008, and before long he was doing what she did.

Lets end this right here, dry up our tears, and just move on with our lives! OK?

Honestly, I think a suspension would have been better.
"Right now, many people believe that he didn't "abuse or attack people" and that it was just a "little game" and that they were "eyewitnesses" to the event."

Sorry to tell you, but I'm not a "fucking liar". To me, it was a drawing game that went bad and people took waaaay too seriously, and Troy got carried away. Even though I was not involved with the game, I still understood what was going on.

And the fanart was not really his fanart, since it did not consist of his character(s). It was fanart of the show "Happy Tree Friends", but he said that, for the game, Flaky should be a flippy sue. But that's just my view on the whole 'fanart' aspect of this.

Now, I'm not saying he didn't harass anyone. Like I said, he got carried away, and a suspension should have been better, since it might get his act together, telling him "Hey, calm down, your game is getting out of hand." However, I still looked at this situation as a game that was suppose to be fun, but people got too serious about it, in which Troy got carried away, in which everything ended badly and into a humungous flamewar.

What you call "game", is just harsh attempt of mass trolling and chantage.
The fact that he abused others' characters (be it HTF canon characters, FCs or OCs) only makes that worse.
What kind of game is that, when you are forced to draw what he tells, or he will make abusing pic on your character?

Like I said, that is what you think on the matter. On the other hand, I will keep what I think. I just can't believe that someone's ban caused this big of a flamewar. I mean, I'm getting comments on my journal from people I don't even know because of my standing on the situation.

But that's fine. I'll fight for my point as long as I need to.

When you talked about his game, this is exactly what I meant by "people taking it too seriously". No one was forced to do anything. They had the choice to not do what he wanted. Of course, the consequence was a troll picture from him. This is where everyone, including Troy, got a little out of hand. Troy should have been a little nicer, I agree. For example, when he said that he would post the picture in a dA group. That was kind of unsettling. However, everyone thought that their character would be ruined if he drew the picture. The character belongs to the rightful owner, and they have the official say on what their character is. Just because someone else drew a troll pic of someone's character, doesn't mean that they are forever a Sue, or forever humiliated. Any smart person would realize this if they found the humiliated picture. They would know that "Oh, this picture was drawn by someone else, and not the original character owner."

From my point of view, everybody just took things too seriously, including Troy. I'm not on either side of this situation, seeing as how the two major sides are with the ban or against the ban.

I don't think you get it. People was FORCED to participate or else they'll be humiliated. Sure, it was just a picture, but it still counts as humiliation, and that hurts people right into their emotions, do you think that's acceptable? They were not even asked if they wanted to participate, they were just added on the journal and forced to do what he desired, no matter how busy they were to actually work on what he asked for, and he constantly teased a lot of the participants so they'll work faster.

That's unfriendly.

Actually, I do. You say that people were actually forced, or they'll get humiliated. I mentioned somewhere else that it's probably just me that thinks that a single picture isn't something to freak out over, or act like it's the end of the world, or worth getting humiliated about, but if I was involved, I would have said "I'm better than Troy Howard, I will not give him the satisfaction of him seeing me humiliated." Everyone played into his trap to see his watchers beg for mercy, or beg for more time, etc. So wouldn't it be everyone's fault? Of course, Troy is more at fault here, but everyone was just too mad and serious about the situation that they gave what Troy wanted; power. If everyone just stayed calm and didn't let Troy humiliate them, then they wouldn't have been forced to do anything. Then, he could get his punishment without causing so much drama, like it has now.

I do agree that he did get unfriendly, intimidating, and a little out of control, but a suspension would have been a great warning for him, and if he striked again, I wouldn't mind if he got a ban, since he's already been warned.

Of course, if he already got a suspension in the past, then I would understand the ban. Therefore, everything I said about the suspension would be invalid, lol. But I didn't know him forever.

Not the ban itself, but other people's desire to bring him back.
I don't think blatant rudeness and abuse can be justified by non-serious attitude.
Troll pics are simply spit into face of those who created the characters with love. It's just disrespect to people.
So, this game, you say?
"I don't care what you want, are you busy and how is your health condition. I want you to draw a perverted pic for me, and draw it now! Otherwise I'll humiliate your character in my porn pics!"
This is solid reason for BAN. He was acting like this for long time.

I know he has been acting like this for a long time. I'm surprised at how he has been acting like that for a long time, but no one un-watched him, or whatever. I understand that he passed some boundaries, but everyone should get a warning, no matter what they do. I find it unfair for someone to get a perma-ban without some type of warning, like a suspension saying "Stop what you're doing. This is your warning. If you don't take heed of this warning, you're done." I mean, I haven't known him since the day he joined dA, and if he got suspended before, and I didn't know, then everything I just said was invalid, LOL. -derp-

I'm not favoring friendship over justice. Not at all. I mean, he was my friend, and it would be nice for him to be back, but I do believe he needed SOME type of punishment. If he never got suspended before, then suspension would have been better. And, if he did get suspended in the past, then, I guess, I would understand the ban, since he already got a 'warning' for his behavior.


Btw, totally off topic, but I like your art. It's very interesting. c:

If he was acting like this for a long time, then why not be reported until now? If he had been punished before a shitstorm began, then his punishment wouldn't have been as harsh. It would've been a suspension that said "you are going to far" way before he crossed the line into ban territory. If you ask me, I blame dA for it. They shoulda caught him earlier. Because they didn't, the reinforced his behavior by not even saying "Hey, WTF you doing bro?" Because of their mistake, I say he should get a suspension, and a slap on the wrist saying, "you lucked out, don't let us catch you again." And you there lutherine, you apparently know he did this behavior for SO long, meaning I'm sure, you've watched him for a while. Why didn't YOU report him, or get the attention of an admin? If you really think he's done this for so long, and you're such a big supporter of his punishment, then you should be at fault too, for not saying anything sooner. If people really think this behavior has been so bad for so long, they should've said something, before it got this bad, making it their fault too.

He was acting like jerk for a long time, but only currently he begun to blackmail people.
Mods simply didn't know that's happening. I didn't deem him worth of being reported. Other people decided that he should be reported, and mods decided that he deserves ban.
And I am not Christian preacher to care of such people. He wouldn't listen, he would laugh at my face. So, if I participated in his ban, even indirectly, I am happy.

I think most of his art being taken down would have been a huge kick in his balls. After all, his art will still be there, to annoy people and provoke offense. Therefore he's still winning even if it's just by a little bit.

Troy lived off of getting people offended or upset and now it's still going to go on after his ban.

Well, if he was going to blackmail or force other users to draw him free fan art by saying he would draw the owner's OC in a particular way that the owner does not want him to, and then uploading said OC wither or not the owners of OC did what he requested is wrong.

That is actually a pretty good point. This is a 23-year old ADULT who is harassing kids as young as 14 with threats and verbal abuse to make him free stuff.

If this was happening directly, and not online, that's probably be against some kind of law.

You forgot to mention that he aparently made alt accounts to troll other people.

But yes, the ban was deserved. The people trying to deffend him doesn't know the whole story, or are too stupid to understand the situation.

Hopefully he'll never return.

Also note that even people who politely asked him to not make troll-art of them, or downright begged him to just leave them alone, were just taunted more, or threatened with additional 'punishment'

He can't hide bhind the flimsy excuse of "It was just a game!" because he ADMITTED he was being manipulative and was totally giddy about it. Being a dick for amusement is still being a dick. He HAD many opportunities to back out of it but was utterly convinced he could not be held accountable, and could bully whoever he wanted to. Well, turns out he can't.

And that's all that matters; I don't even care if he gets his account back as long as he now knows that he CAN be taken down a peg for acting like a twat. He CAN be called out on his actions and have it be delivered upon. He now knows he is forever on thin ice with the DA Mods, even if he does get his account back. Which is unlikely, unless the bleating of ignorant and uninformed sheep drown out their common sense.
