Empire Online has named Dobby as one of their eight "Most Downtrodden (Yet Inspiring) Characters in Movie History." Wall-E, Spartacus and Napoleon Dynamite were amongst the other "luckless individuals who at least make our lives better." The feature provides a background on both why Dobby is so miserable and so inspiring. Quotage:

Dobby continues to play a heroic role throughout the series, always putting the welfare of others before his own, and plays a role out of all proportion to his size.
The full feature can be found on the Empire Online website right here.

Thanks very much to Gazza for the tip!

Dobby really deserves it. Whenever he’s talking during the books, I talk for him because he always talks really cutely!

I love Dobby. I was annoyed that he wasn’t included in ‘…Goblet of fire’ as well as the other noteable house elves in book four. I hope Dobby and Kreacher get the screen time they deserve in the last (sobs) movie.

It’s interesting that this is about downtrodden (yet inspiring) movie characters yet much of the content of that article refers to house elves in the books. But Dobby truly is inspiring – so positive despite suffering so much.
