It was mr.madsen from little-gamers, but apparantly, the guy was just a tad nervous so his attempt at humor might have come over as way too serious.

Keenspacers! My god, they were like vikings invading. One minute there were none, the next they were everywhere. Didn't talk to them as much as I'd like (and this is a recurring theme ) because a) they have no idea who I am, b) I didn't really know who they were either, and c) I was too shit scared. They probably had weapons.
I also feel that I must clear something. At the Panel I said something that might have sounded like Keenspace/spot was all bad comics, something that was not my intention. I was only humoring the fact that 90% of the stuff sucks, and you can get hosted there even if you draw poop on a stick and call it jesus.

And he's right! We were armed by the sheer power of craziness!
Claude didn't stop drawing, ever, and also managed to sell some of MY books as well! The man is a dynamo!

It's a free service and there's no quality control. If you go by average quality of the 'Space comics and weigh in all the crap produced by little Jimmys the world round, that's going to drag it down. If you have in your hands the sampler book however, for example, and check the quality of the stuff in it, well - it's really good, very much at the same level of most stuff I've seen at the exhibition and in many cases better. Keenspace though carries a stigma of poor quality associated to it, a bit like, say, Skoda, AOL, Geocities websites, etc. - again, because the average quality (weighing in the Jimmys) is bad. But most of you are way above that average quality, so why do you care?
