A Negative Word about Bill Gaines?

Up until now I've had only good thoughts about Bill Gaines, the genius behind Mad Magazine in its glory days, Tales from the Crypt, Weird Science, and much, much more.

Now I hear that he was responsible for the death of 3-D comics.

I don't know if I should fall into "It-must-be-true-because-it's-on-the-web" trap but this page has a good reputation.

Not that 3-D comics ever mattered to me like Alfred E. or the Old Witch but somehow. . .

And, yes, I know that Gaines never gave his writers and artists real contracts on Mad, which caused Don Martin to go to the vastly inferior Cracked.

Man, a few more posts like this and I can open my own comic shop.
