Certainly, the former publisher's criticism of our work is understandable - our's is more entertaining than what had previously been posted in its place. Unlike our predecessor, though, we know how to take criticism in stride and we will not "take our ball and go home."
The former publisher also apparently doesn't understand what parody and sarcasm are. If you're a Pitt fan and can't appreciate parody and sarcasm, Panther Rants believes you must be the most miserable person on the planet. Pitt fans take gobs of abuse due to their undying love for the university's sports programs which continuously come up short. We at Panther Rants are indeed fans of the school's programs, hence we use sarcasm and parody as our outlets and coping mechanisms. If you don't like it, don't read it.
As for the former publisher's insinuations of potential legal actions, Panther Rants fans can be assured that we, the new publishers, will not be scared away. Panther Rants own legal team is looking into the matter and preliminarily believes the former publisher would be laughed out of any attorney's office.
