The fuck are you on about?
The counter to "but it's free!" is that price has no bearing on criticism, just the
critic's level of investment. It's not even a free product, as Morbi is directly compensated for his output and is paid more per page than some of his professional contemporaries, and to dismiss the people who aren't paying is ludicrous.
I mean, do you understand how fucking retarded it would sound if you claimed "but it was free!" when people criticize scanned Rob Liefeld art? It's not even an argument, it's nearly a non-sequiter because it's so far removed from the discussion.
