Trisha’s Quote of the Day: Reaping the consequences of being a dick

As a geek of the new age, most people know that the first law of writer/actor Wil Wheaton is “Don’t be a dick.” However, if you’ve ever wondered what Wheaton does when someone he personally knows and likes violates that law, you need to start reading his Tumblr ask responses.

In a follow-up response, Wheaton stated that he wouldn’t be participating in any future Acquisitions, Inc. adventures and encouraged people who wanted to see him introduce a continuous RPG campaign to his web series Tabletop to start watching the Geek & Sundry channel on June 9, when the IndieGoGo-funded campaign called Titansgrave: The Ashes of Valkana will start airing weekly on Tuesdays.

At least this answers the question of, “Will we ever get to see Aeofel and Viari have a contest over who is prettier?” But what I think Wheaton’s response to Kurtz’ actions also does is introduce a model of what other people can do whenever people in their lives are behaving in ways that make them extremely uncomfortable. I doubt Wheaton came to that decision very easily, but it does seem as if he and the people in his life who were hurt by Kurtz’ actions are better off for it.
