the usual net art suspects

Late addendum to the "wtf is a net artist" list:

-- Someone from the group of people that everyone's always complaining about being lumped together in the same online gallery exhibitions.

Per Nicholas O'Brien: "One such criticism of the overall impact of these spaces comes from the striking similarity of artists shown in these venues."

It's not that the artists are similar to each other, it's that the shows are similar for including the same group over and over. When one of these artists criticizes the work of another (as happened in Paddy Johnson's GIF show last year), ugly name calling quickly commences.
