The Obvious Troll Part 4 by TomPreston The Obvious Troll Part 4 by TomPreston
Copyright 2012-2013 Brent Black, Dan Roth, & Andrew Dobson
Read the latest Brentalfloss comic at the new website! [link]

And that's the end of the Obvious Troll storybook. Read all 4 parts via the links provided below.

PS: I know I have a "history" with criticism and trolls and what-have-you, But I'd like to remind people of a couple of things. 1) I am only the artist for the Brentalfloss comic, I don't write them. 2) this comic isn't about me. 3) it's not about accepting criticisms, it's about real trolls, ie: the type of people who try to piss others off for lulz. 4) this was written and posted on the Brentalfloss the comic website waaaaay back around November 2012, so it's not based on any recent events or drama. 5) did I mention I didn't write it? If you liked the lyricism please thank Dan and Brent, not me. I'm just the artist.

That was so adorable! You should get this published, even if it is for grown-up kids!

then again a troll is what you see it as. people who gave you well thought out mindful critiques. YOU labeled as a troll  blocked and removed their comments. the thing is it seems you still have not learned in so many years.

then again. we should be mindful of what is written. but seeing this come from you is just funny as hell

For the hundredth time... I didn't write this series. I just drew it.

I'm a bit of both. 
And this is actually pretty heartwarming.

i have noticed people no longer use troll or bully the right way.  saying to someone "you sould not paint over National Geographic photos and sell them it is wrong and aginst site rules, it is cheap and makes you look bad and untalented. at least trace over photos you own the copyright to" makes you a troll/bully.

what are you supposed to say? "good job, you are so talented, I wish I could do a good job like you. I am so jelous! how do you do it? I don't understand why you are not a professional"

or if a terrible storyteller say to someone "i can do such a better job telling stories, this is stupid" to go "OH wow, I looked at your wonderful story telling and I'm sorry but you have no claim if you think this plot is better than the one you bashed. it looks like something from a show for toddlers, Dora the Explorer gets deeper than this" *… (a kid bashed this story saying it was unrealstic and dumb. seeing how a sterile mule cannot have a gypsy varner foal)
