ART BEGAT CRITICISM BEGAT ART

Lest you think we can dish it out but we can't take it, let's take a look at the ugly underbelly of creation: ruthless attacks from strangers. In the spirit of embracing criticism as a means of creating better, um, stuff, here are some snippets from insults of Filler over the past year - sometimes stinging, sometimes thrillingly juvenile, but always very insightful and constructive.




"Oh good.You no longer write about being a whiny bitch. Instead you write about being a whiny bitch and tell us not to worry -- that Filler will still be just as crappy and cathartic as an Alanis Morissette song. Gee, this pair of testicles is just GURGLING with pleasure." - Michael Zacks

"I am getting so sick of your complaining! You preach the gospel of questioning authority and going against the grain but you are coming off like all the other privileged down-trodden whiners." - A persistent sucker.

"This whole site is probably run by some schizo in a padded room who was given a computer so he would stop threatening other institution-mates with imaginary Canadian crack rabbits." - Matthew Edwards

"You write like a girl." - Gregory Waddell

"You remind me of one of those screechy girls who take acid and cut themselves up." - Demmy Rooster

If this column, along with 'Three's Company', 'Friends', and 'Cheers' did not exist, than dolts like me would have mothing to do with ourselves (well almost nothing) and dolts like you would be unemployed." - Michael Zacks

"You must be horribly ugly, unlike myself." - gutter snipe
