Massifesto (supposedly) AKA: Vin Vidvault & AJ Stang is a severely butthurt and self-proclaimed professional writer whom dwells in the depths of deviantART (and his toilet). He at one point tried to draw. Failing to realize talent is built and not born magically overnight resorted to simply writing (badly) instead and seems to pretend that he never tried to draw all together. He was only recently discovered (despite being incredibly well-known) in the complaints when he posted an extremely biased and elitest opinion on how mediocre artists should not be allowed to critique pro artists, along with other shit no one cares about. Despite being a 31 year old man, he types and thinks like a 13 year old tartlet who's blinded by his own awesomeness. He suffers from Illusory Superiority & Unwarranted Self importance. He also lives in a fantasy world where he is a hero and his watchers are in need of protection, while he furiously faps to all the porn he comissioned of his own characters.
A shitstorm was born
Massifesto believes that money = talent. Much like Paris Hilton thinks. Because he has a severe lack of artistic talent and alot of money he started to commission Top artists. Once the artist is done with the commission, he uploads it to his own gallery. After realizing this brought him secondhand and thirdhand e-fame he did this for all 5000 dollars worth of commissions. This some how fed his ego to gargantuan proportions.
This is where it starts. Massi started a thread in the complaints forum that could be considered the DeviantArt equivalent of /b/, bitching like a little girl, while at the same time stating how awesome & superior he is compared to everyone else. As no one exactly took to being told they're not good enough to judge by a person with a gallery full of other peoples art, the first action taken was to give him to the people that would shoot him down from his high horse the fastest.
He transcended down through the stages of butthurt faster than the speed of light.
I did it for a friend
In his own defense against the hoard that he brought down upon himself, he basically stated that his "friend" was down because a group moderator rejected him for having a third-hand gallery. He failed to mention or show any proof of this "friend". Here is why: His friend doesn't and never will exist. No one in their right mind would befriend someone that behaves like he does.
Proof this so called friend doesn't exist and he's a butthurt 31 year old manchild:
When he saw this didn't work he moved on. More proof that no one cares about him at all is that not a single soul has run to his defense.
I did it on purpose
Yes he actually tries to convince people that he knew that this is how people would have reacted and that he did it all on purpose.
Fuck you, peasants
Following on is a list which strangely resembles some sort of butch army recruitment leaflet.
Now, let's back up for a second and answer these questions.
Are you tired of being insulted by artists who are not skilled enough or famous enough to speak down to you about your art?
Now, most people are not shallow enough to judge critique on how famous someone is. Fuck, going by this opinion, Justin Bieber has a right to critique a pro's art
even if he can't draw jack shit.
Are you tired of them running to each other's defense when you answer back to their insults?
Are you sick of groups that advertise something about the MO of their group and then turn out to just be brown nosing elitists?
A comment from one of his own groups:
Are you tired of admins who make groups only to promote their own crappy work?
Ahem. Who are you to judge whose work is crappy and whose isn't considering you can't even fucking DRAW, and YOU were the one who said:
Are you tired of admins who make their groups about licking the sacks of really elite artists (who probably laugh about it or don't even notice)?
Referring back to the answer to the question about "brown nosing elitists".
