I mean, I knew they were right. They may be assholes, but I knew they were right when I watched a few of Meyer's videos (never really watched EVS, just know him from his Twitter shenanigans)
I stopped reading comics around One More Day and a lot of /co/ did too back in the day. Back when we were getting pissed on things like Blue Beetle being killed off, the whole Max Lord thing, and were calling on how if companies can throw decades of history in the garbage to chase a fad, the industry would die soon after.
I think most of those people left /co/, all that's left is the "/co/mblr" crowd and stuff shifted more towards cartoons discussions. It was also around the time of the colored horse invasion.
Old /co/ would have loved these guys
