Catching Fire

Last time, you remember, Josh Hoopes, the Sacramento man who has been scamming people looking to work in comics for over a decade, accidentally doxed himself and Rich Johnston at Bleeding Cool got the info.

Johnston offered Hoopes a public deal -- go away and never come back, and Johnston will sit on the info instead of turning it over to the people looking to press charges but unable to because they do not have the info.

At this point, any rational person would go, "I better knock it off."

Hoopes is not rational.

He did another of his bits on Freelanced, using one of his known aliases (Lalit Kumal) and displaying the exact same artwork gallery that everyone knows he uses.  (He does have a new pseudonym, David Houser.)

And he has scammed two more people.

Johnston has given them Hoopes personal information, and both are going to buzz the fuzz.

Mr. Hoopes?  There's an old Polish proverb that says, "When you play with matches, you shouldn't be surprised when you accidentally light one."

David Houser? Why not Doogie Howser (80's/90's reference), or Maxwell Hauser (80's reference... damn I'm good)?

I'm not sure it's a proverb, but there is an old Hick Rule to Live By that says, "If you are going to play with matches, stay away from the gas can."
