Even if he were, the stuff he makes is pretty bland anyway. The only thing I've seen that actually shows good building technique and not just a bunch of fancy parts stacked on top of one another are his three jets, and those were only recent developments.
It would be one thing if he actually was on par with a lot of the higher builders in the Lego community, but criticizing because some of us aren't on par is kind of ridiculous. Especially since all he seems to put out are minifigs.
Even if we aren't the best builders, think about the people who ARE the best builders in the Lego community. They're older people with steady jobs. They have money to pay for ridiculous amounts of Lego and can go buy Bricklink orders every week if they want. Older people also have usually settled in on one or two major hobbies along with their jobs. They don't do much else. I don't know about the rest of us, but I don't have a room or corner devoted to my Lego, and it's not all nicely sorted. I only build for maybe a couple hours a week at most, and that's just fiddling around. I have more hobbies and other ways to spend my time than just Lego.
I also don't have a fancy camera and lightbox to take pictures of my MOCs. I've been sitting on a couple creations that I don't have time to photograph because of school, etc.
