You're so mean, Toxic Mario didn't do anything wrong ... actually no, I'm not gonna fall for any of Toxic's BS.

Anyway, you may find this interesting: i.imgur.com/P4hfMeM.png

The way you act against Toxic-Mario is completely ridiculous. And I'm saying this a voice of reason, not to insult you.


So he apparently insulted you at cons and badmouthed your art, supposedly to give his own art more attention and sell more of it, which might have happened or might not have happened at all, I couldn't tell, because I wasn't there.
And your response is that you jump on the bandwagon and participate in a movement that brings up cons against him, threatens his livelihood with that, that makes EQD denying him art features and that mass-reports his art to Deviantart until the site staff gives in to the pressure and removes his art, because of tracing accusations he did a very good job with disproving by literally making each step of the creation process public.
You accuse him of acting immaturely by insulting you and badmouthing your art and yet, the way you react is even more immature than what you accuse him of; riling up conventions against him once accusations thrown at him show a weakspot and reporting his art pieces until they get taken dow once the draws something suggestive involving foals, something other artists do as well, yet you don't attack them:

Buy Me 2.5 Cover 1


Rarity's little helper...

Are you going to report his art too, now? No, of course you won't, even though it's suggestive art of a foal, the same thing Toxic-Mario did in his comic, because you don't hold a grudge against this artist. Only against Toxic-Mario.

And don't say again now you aren't behind this or that this is justice or whatever shit.
You are the one who is the most vocal about Toxic-Mario and who talks about him the harshest, comments written by you that show this are all over the place everywhere, it is very clear that you are the main instigator who is behind all of this, both behind that the cons ban him and that his art gets reported to Deviantart now for the purposes out of a petty sense of justice for a crime he didn't even commit.
And with your track record of holding a grudge against him, I wouldn't be surprised if you are the one who brought up the tracing accusations in the first place too.


Listen, man, I have no idea what kind of feud you have with Toxic-Mario, but if there are any gripes you have with him, you would be best advised to talk to him in private like a mature person and find an agreement with him both of you are happy with to settle that conflict. Heck, even if it would be true what you said him talking bad about you and your art, you would collect actual evidence for this such as screenshots and voice recordings and ask your watchers to do the same, but you don't do this.
All you do is attacking him and claiming things, but you never bring up any profound proof for those claims.
Leading a vendetta against him, badmouthing him, ruining his reputation and income and sabotaging his art is not the right way to respond to whatever problem you have with him.
In the end, all you accomplish is driving a renowned pony artist out of the fandom for the sake of getting your personal revenge on him, which is not just hurting Toxic-Mario, it will hurt his fans as well and will overall hurt the whole fandom.
This is literally the stuff you and the other ones attacking him are breeding, a pony art community where no artist can feel safe anymore.

If that is your goal, then by all means, continue this vendetta. But it makes you the bad guy, not Toxic-Mario, and you will hurt a lot more people than just him with it.

I don't have a feud with him, I don't need to do anything.
All us artists that don't like him were all looking at each other wondering who it was that reported it, wasn't anyone I knew

I got a note and apparently this was who reported it saturnstar14.deviantart.com/st…

Idk if it really was or they're just saying so to get attention no idea.

Tox can blame me for whatever, but honestly the only thing I've REALLY done is the comments made to him and the screen caps I've taken. All recorded for anyone to see.
I don't go to cons and tell people to not buy from tox. I just tell them to attend his streams and get their own opinion instead

"I don't go to cons and tell people to not buy from tox."

And neither does he tell people not to buy from you. I talked with him and what he did was that he told his customers that he had something to offer that your booth didn't offer.
A lot of vendors are at a convention and people's wallets are limited, so there's definitely competition happening, and pointing out the unique offerings one's booth has is a kind of normal advertising that happens at conventions.
This doesn't mean "luring people away from you", this is a very normal vendor practique that is expected to happen in a competitive setting. Besides, since whatever he advertised was something your booth didn't have anyway, he didn't even try to make people buy a certain product from his booth rather than from your own. He was simply offering people who had visited your booth something in addition to the stuff they maybe bought from you already, but ne never told anyone to not buy stuff from you.

This is either something you're making up for the same purpose of what you accuse him of, to boost your sales by badmouthing another vendor, or you're blowing things out of proportion because you're afraid that he could sell more than you.
And that's something that has to stop. You will never be the only vendor at a con and if another vendor outsells you, then this might be a bitter pill to swallow, but it can happen and it happens to other vendors as well, so this is something you have to expect and deal with. In a way that doesn't involve smearing shit on another vendor to destroy a competitor.
The only one who is acting too competitive here is really you.
