A few minutes of time with an SVG app and his critics will all but disappear.


Doubtful. Some people enjoy criticizing others' work too much for improved quality to deter them.

But since you have the answers... and since it's so easy (just a few minutes with the right tool), why don't you volunteer to help on the artwork?

Personally, I think the raw sketches have a certain, err... rustic charm. ;-)

Also, consider that the purpose of the work is not to win awards, but to reduce the tension that tends, too easily, to build up in these forums.

I'm not paid to look after OSNews. (What do you think all the ads are for?)

What ads? I pay the nickel a day membership because I enjoy the site. Subscribers don't get ads.

At any rate, I can see that it is pointless to appeal to your better nature because you don't seem to have one. And there is really no need, because you've made it abundantly clear how much your opinion is actually worth. And not just to me, I'd wager. But to pretty much anyone around here who appreciates work done by others on for his or her benefit.

BTW, and in case you didn't know, no one is paid to look after OSNews. It is entirely a volunteer effort. What little money that comes in from ad revenue and membership fees goes to paying for the costs of the site so that the volunteers do not have to pay the bandwidth costs, etc. out of their own pockets.

Have a nice day.

Neither is Thom...he doesn't get paid as OSNews is a volunteer effort.

I happen to enjoy the comics. Keep up the good work Thom.
