    So apparently Leigh is still jealous of the flirting the intern does. I know it's an insecurity on her part and I should be more supportive, but damned if I don't enjoy the stepping up in Leigh's flirting with me it causes.

    This is pretty ridiculous. I don't understand why this comic gets you so upset you have to trash it by using words like "pitiful".

    it doesn't get me 'upset', i just think it's a lame comic. i was leaving it at that but jokerman asked me to explain exactly what was so lame about it. 'pitiful' is a step down from the definition i saw in the dictionary: a desire that is immoral or distasteful. i think you see a lot more anger behind the word 'pitiful' than i actually put there. like, a little kid swings a bat and misses a pitch and i go "wow, that was pitiful". i'm not actually going to follow him to the showers and shove him in a locker. relax.
    It's doubly ridiculous because you have interests that others don't understand and you get shit for it but here you are giving shit in kind.

    you're right that i do get a lot of shit for it- people here have called me tiny-dicked, insane, deluded, and even a bigot, and other shit that is a lot harsher than 'your silly and pitiful nerd nostalgia'.
    Anyway, the sticking point is the intention of the creator. I just asked if you thought it was crafted with the intention of being popular and you said you couldn't assume that, but now you say that it was made knowing that people would eat it up, so what the hell are you talking about.

    I think the creator likes these things and he made a comic about them. The comic is over-the-top and fun.

    i meant that i couldn't assume he did it solely to be eaten up by this demographic. i think he likes the stuff, too- which is how he writes it well enough, and comfortably enough, that you all love it. but i also think for sure that it probably ran through his mind, how to make it even more outrageously relatable to y'all. it's probably a synergy of both.

    I think you're upset because you're getting bent out of shape over a comic book, deriding it and the people who like it and making assumptions about the author which are murky as hell and unsupported thus far. Take your own advice and relax.

    And so, because you get more severe shit thrown at you you are thus entitled to throw a little shit yourself, so long as it isn't as bad or something? It doesn't matter that even if your behaviour is less severe it's still the same behaviour you are subjected to?

    Anyway, your last paragraph does not support the idea that he was pandering. The thought that it would be well recieved "running through his mind" is not a calculated attempt at making something that people would eat up. Do you still think it's pandering or have you changed your mind.

    I'll tell you something I tell most people at the end of arguments such as these where someone hates something other people like: You don't have to like it but saying it's bad instead of recognizing that you just have different tastes is silly and you should let people enjoy what they like. Some ribbing here and there is fine but this is a little much.

    Best shampoo I ever had had oatmeal in it. I have no idea what it was called. I have very fine hair that tends to frizz and also tends to get oily. That shampoo was the perfect chemistry for my scalp, no grease, no frizz.

    Every once in a while I think to myself, "Hey, that oatmeal shampoo was rad!" and I go looking for it and I can never find it. Maybe I dreamed it.

    sarks you're being ridiculous.

    i'm explaining what i don't like about the comics- too full of self-indulgent references and every name drop imaginable. every few pages makes me groan, because i can imagine a 20something liberal who grew up in the late 80s going "heehee, that was cool". i don't like that, it makes it difficult for me to immerse myself in the work. i think it's lame and silly.

    i haven't called anyone a pedophile or a filthy, antisocial geek. you're seriously making me sound way more hateful and judgmental than i'm actually being.
