The Oatmeal/FunnyJunk relationship stops being funny.

To bring you up to speed, Matthew Inman is funny and produces The Oatmeal, a webcomic mostly about absurd or geeky stuff(it's hilarious. Do yourself a favor and check it out), and he posts it online free to air. The problem is that Funnyjunk(whom I refuse to link to) posts it on their site as their own content and refuse to even give him the benefit of a credit for his work.

I'm all about the free sharing of information, but not at the cost of the creator. Give him his credit, or you don't get to share his content.

After taking it on the chin for months, he took a stand.

(un)Funnyjunk calls him a 'fag' and continues to steal his content.

Here is the ongoing story as told by Ars Technica.
