What's Alan Moore's Problem?

Why is he such a crabby bastard about 'Watchmen', etc.?

I'm guessing he has his reasons.

What I'm looking for is a concise explanation with as few inside references as possible. (In other words, I'm on the outside looking in, and I need a little help.)

I'm guessing that he had some bad experiences with studios in that past, and he feels burned.

But, if that's the case, were his experiences any worse than what the normal creative type has when they go head to head with the suits? (As much of any of us can possibly know what happened, that is.)

Or is he just reacting more strongly than others to the same nonsense that every creative type has to deal with?
