And I quote:
I have taken down the "Bert is Evil!"site from my server. I would like to thank Sesame Workshop for their patience and restraint all these years. I implore all fans and mirror site hosts of "Bert is Evil" to stop the spread of this site too.
This is not selling out. I was not bullied. I am not being a pussy.
I am doing this because I feel this has gotten too close to reality and I choose to be responsible enough to stop it right here.
I want to thank all the fans who laughed with me all these years. Thank you to the mirror sites who continued the legacy beyond what I started. Thanks to Victor J. Zuylen, N. Ross Gilbert, Wout Reinders and Jasper Hulshoff Pol who helped me build the site back in the early days. Thank you to Tiffany Schlain and the Webby Awards team for believing in me. Many thanks to the press who have helped me get my site noticed (specifically the now defunct magazines Internet Underground and The Web). Thank you to Lloyd Kaufman and the Tromaville.com staff who brought Fractal Cow back to life.
I hope my other projects will receive an ounce of the appreciation you all showed "Bert is Evil!".
Thank you very much.
That's mental! As if we already don't have enough reasons to not like these muppets, they go and cost us one of the funniest sites on the web because some dumb ass towel head can't tell comedy from reality.
Cross am I!
