In other words, to deserve a douche label you have to do some kind of real-world harm to someone via a scam, censorship, or bully campaign?

Okay, I took down a lot of tags. So let's go over what SHOULD get a tag-

Enraging- really fucking stupid opinions. If this person isn't writing a comic supporting rape, don't tag him with this icon.
Disgusting- Something that really makes you sick. On par with the Dominic Deegan rape or any page of Moon Over June.
Douche- Person with a long history of being an ass. It has to be something having to do WITH THE ARTIST HIMSELF. Not simply for having stupid opinions expressed in his comic.
Mindfuck- There seems to be some confusion about this. This tag is made to notify the comic is completely fucking INSANE. Nothing else.
Atomic Bomb- DO NOT GIVE COMICS THIS TAG. Go on the forum and discuss it.
NSFW- Do not give a comic the tag or the template unless these is nudity IN THE REVIEW ITSELF or the links in the review lead to PORN.

I will also be replacing the icons for better looking ones sometime in the next few days.

I kindda would. He's a douche, no doubt, but no more than most people on the wiki. I mean, what has he done that's so bad besides obnoxiously spout his erroneous political opinions and not update on time? Compare that to some of the real drama whores on this wiki like people who steal charity money, attack their fans, try to remove any criticism of them from the internet or do god knows what else.

Most people we review are dicks. I don't think he passes the bar for the tag.

I think that there is a bit of a loose definition for the {{douche}} label. A lot of the older comics that are Enraging I think do have it (Hathor, Truth for Youth, I'm sure there are others) but we don't know a lot about the actual authors even if they are nuts/outright wrong. Even Sandra & Woo's Novil I'm not too sure about. Is he an idiot that responds poorly to criticism? Yeah, but that's not a long rap sheet compared to others.

The ones that I think rightfully do deserve it include Psyguy (an all-around creep and possible pedophile), David Willis (incredibly mean-spirited to critics to the point of strawmanning and libel), Ctrl+Alt+Del (well-documented loser), Dave Cheung (pornographer who attacks anyone who criticizes him), Andrew Dobson (another well-documented loser, there's a rap sheet 50+ pages long over on the CWCki Forums and his idiotic tweets), Jay Naylor (stealing characters, etc.), Thunt (see his thread), Bleedman, the guy that draws TwoKinds (treats his fanbase like crap, etc.)

Ones that don't include D.C. Simpson (made some catastrophically stupid comics with some unfortunate implications), Truth for Youth (stupid opinions, Enraging tag, but we really don't know a lot about him or how he responds to criticism), Hathor the Cow Goddess (see previous), and I hate to say it, even the VGCats guy (definitely a contender for "Disgusting", for sure). Max West's biggest crime is ripping off punchlines, but reading the author biography he sounds more like a pathetic dweeb than anything else and not necessarily a special case)

Novil got it for trying to sabotage our reviews. as described in the "Reactions" section.  He definitely earned it.

D. C. Simpson?  Maybe not an absolute dick, but even Ozy And Millie fans and she tend not to get along.

Personally, I think Diaz deserves the Douche label, not because of his obnoxious SJW views, or because he's a condescending dick to his critics (as you mentioned, most "artists" on this site share that distinction) but because he's a dick to HIS FANS. The ones who pay him to the tune of nearly 5 grand a month to not meet his very modest comic drawing goals. That's pretty much the same level as Thunt, and the author of Twokinds, but Diaz is less subtle about it. I really don't see how we can justify the label for the likes of those two, and DC Simpson, but not for Diaz.

Oddguy doesn't typically care to use tags; otherwise we'd probably see more of them.

Like I said, tags should be added after discussion and I am no exception to my own rules.

I think this one is honestly bad enough to deserve to "Atom Bomb" tag. It is literally one of the worst, most revolting things I have ever seen in the form of a webcomic. What do you guys think?

This is one of those comics that disgusted me just based on the discription. I'm not going near the thing, but it sure sounds like an A-bomb to me.

I read the review (and made a few minor spelling and format changes to it), and just from the description, I recommend A-bomb too.

Lemme check the comic ...

*30 second elapse*

Since we don't have orbital dropped tungsten rods abomb will do.

I posted my review of Hailey Flower.  Definitely disgusting and NSFW, I don't think anybody would question those.  I do think though that this might warrant a mindfuck or even an a-bomb tag.  Seriously.  But I won't tag those unless I get any agreement.

Hell, I decided it definitely merits a Mindfuck tag, especially after someone placed more information about the artist on it.

Disgusting? Sure. NSFW? I guess in a way. Mindfuck? Hardly. Compare it to something like "God's story" where god is killed by a giant eyeball for being Satan's gay lover, or "Latex BLUE" where a four-titted mouse/horse with a giant dick and tentacles goes on a killing spree. Compared to those "Haily Flower" is pretty straight-forward: Guy with fart fetish draws a bunch of girls faring on each other. And it certainly not bad enough for an A bomb. Again, is it really as bad as something like USAC, Sonichu, or Billy the Heretic? The author section has nothing to do with the Mindfuck tag. You might use it to justify a Douchebag tag, but even with the pedophilia thing I don't think he's a big enough Douche by our standards (we got some real creeps on here).

So I'm not seeing it.

Gamma has asked if adam4d.com qualifies for tags. He's suggested douchebag and enraging. I was the person who (possibly unwisely) put their hand up to have a crack at it and after just briefly looking at it, I'm already pretty enraged. It is also staggeringly homophobic and from what I've seen of it so far, a lot of it is "You're intolerant for not tolerating my intolerance." .It's also been described by many people independently as being a knockoff of The Oatmeal and I read your review on that too, it seems about right though it's a lot less funny than The Oatmeal.

I did already place an enraging tag on my new Adam4d review, but I pretty well assume that it would earn it because it is written by an author with very strong opinions on Christianity who has no room for other interpretations.

I gave almost the whole line of tags for Banana Cream Cake, though I cannot imagine any of them are uncalled for.  Of course, Oddguy can check them out when he wishes and determine if I'm wrong.

How about tagging Monster Lover and Warmage as "Disgusting"?

Monster Lover was already tagged as this (but without asking first); but I actually think both comics deserve it.
