Okay, so... there's a certain artist, don't wanna drop names in case, who's taken commission money from me and a friend (probably other people too) wayyy back who never delivered the actual artwork and pretty much swept it under the rug. I'm only bringing this up now because I see he's been taking other commissions which I sorta doubt he's completed. Personally, I've just moved on, but seeing this same thing happening to others is pissing me off.
Here's where it gets complicated. He's not really a bad guy, he's nice, probably just in a bad position. Limited net access trying to get a foothold in a place he just moved to. I'm sure if net trouble wasn't the issue people would've gotten their art already but it's wrong to just forget about what you owed people and act like it never happened, taking even more commissions he probably can't deliver.
So the question is: Does this guy deserve to be on artists-beware for the sake of people NOT getting fucked over? It's highly debatable whether he's a thief or not but bullshit is pretty much guaranteed.
