It seems word got to the folks at Chibi-Pa regarding my publicly reminding people about the disrespectful nature with which they treat local anime fans. You see, they’ve added some code (really simple, actually) that forbids the Internet Archive to pull up the old image of their website I reference in this post.
In short: they’re obviously trying to hide the past. It makes it easier to say something along the lines of “that Tom Croom guy is full of shit” if the information is erased… right?
Thanks to some TERRIBLE spelling on their part, it has made it easy to find some of the other sites that reported their wonderful blame the fans tirade that the event promoters posted. Check it out:

Orange Anime (dated November 6, 2006) http://orangeanime.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=14358&start=0
The last one is my personal favorite, especially considering Orange Anime now hosts a room for them (June 25, 2011 update). That speaks so much about that site in so many ways…
