See while they do have a kid now, they ARE both working, meaning they have two incomes. True, prices of everything are going up, but if I were they, I would think they would prioritize THIS after bare necessities for themselves and their daughter.
That said, at this point, YES, small claims court. I no longer have a dog in this fight as I FINALLY got a refund back from Greg after howling at him publically (which was later deleted by Greg and I was reprimanded for), but I agree at this point this is probably one of the only things that will get his attention (besides contacting his advertisers). The court doesn't have to order him to pay everyone back (although that's an option), but they CAN order him to get his act together and get the booklets, the statues, etc back, like within three-six months. Violation of said court order will land his butt in jail.
It is an absolute abomination that it has gone on this long.
I have no problem posting this. His last known email address that I know for certain he was checking is email@example.com
Go hassle him there. DO NOT email the RL store email address. That apparently is no longer being checked, period.
I really hope this gets resolved for all of you. I feel guilty even reading the comic now, knowing what he is doing to you.
