    They say you’re supposed to beware the “Snark-nado”…. – Some will say there really is such a thing as bad publicity… – Many will say that “Fame has it’s price”….. – But nobody was able to tell that toTiffany!…..She probably deleted those Emails….

But even if mentioned, would still apply in the same way as the negative comments: Once Tiffany sees the views, the rest become sort of… “invisible”…

    What’s really sad, though, is that Tiff’s reaction is, actually, quite accurate in real life. Many would rather get “bad/negative” attention than “none at all.” At least it’s “attention” being paid to them."

    In HS “Behavioral Psychology” class, we did the classic “sociogram.” Everyone was told to name three people in class with whom they want to associate, and then three with whom they absolutely did not want to associate. The class members that got the most “favorable” votes was labeled a “star.” The members that got the most “unfavorable votes” were labeled “rejects.” But the members that go no votes at all were the most unfortunate… they were labeled “isolates.” These were the students to which no one paid attention or even noticed. Of course, it was confidential so no student knew who or what they were, but….

    I think that’s something to which Tiff can relate. Her parents treating her more like an “isolate” but the students like Lu and Bern treating her more like a “reject.” I guess only Ox treats her like a “star.”

    More than a year ago, I was taking a class in which we learned how to put together an issue of the university’s annual literary arts magazine. Well, one of our assignments was to make a video of any one work that was selected for publication and then post said video to YouTube. I and a couple of other classmates made ours (we filmed on location at the school AND at a Burger King), after which one of them edited and then uploaded to YouTube. The class is long over, but I still refuse to view the video because there surely are comments and I don’t want to read what people have said about me. I’ve been trolled online before and I don’t want to read about the possibly horrible comments people may make about me or my appearance.

    Tiffany survives armored in fantasy. I think Mr. Evans IS going for the more humanized Tiffany, once he reveals more of her motives. I just hope she has a better story arc than a real life friend I once had, who interpreted everything as praise and admiration to get through a horrible childhood. She went mad.

    I can’t believe that other search engine hasn’t fixed their glitch yet! I have to admit that the pacing of the Luann story lines sometimes (OK, often) gets annoying, but still… it’s more than a little annoying that someone would ruin a story’s roll-out like that and not even try to fix the error.

    The thing is, this wouldn’t actually happen in real life. My sister watches handful’s of make-up videos, and I doubt anyone is mean enough to use that as leverage to type a nasty comment. If they didn’t like it, they’d just move on.

    What would happen is that Tiff would have less than a hundred views, and probably no comments.

    luannverse and real life are 2 different things first of all…………….. second, sometimes Lue has been very snarky with Tiff(Q was once, but it was more of a “come on!!!!!!!! take a hint, I am not interested in you, I tried to be as discreet as possible in the past but you either did not hear it or pretended you did not hear it so now I have to force you to acknowledge what I am saying” statement than about being intentionally mean) but it has to be about some things that makes it so………….. 1. whether is intentional or not is irrelevant, but Tiff comes across as vain, arrogant and that she sees herself as superior to others 2. Tiff is or was fearful of Lue as Lue has what Tiff does not have (quality friends, smarts if compared to tiff, actual talent specially compared to Tiff, relationship with dad and mom and other things) so in order for Lue not to become her equal in “high school status” she makes sure lue continues having lack of confidence in herself thus less likely to make “good looks her actual priority” (she just dreams about it while reading fashion magazines) as Lue’s beauty is equally comparable to Tiff’s and Tiff can’t have that. Tiff also has not learned to take constructive criticism, and one has to learn to put blind ears to stupid and jealous criticism, but at same time learn to listen to real criticism, even if sometimes they are done in a harsh manner, but use constructive criticisms as a platform of how you can diminish your biggest flaws or falls …………about the real life videos of “lue singing” , too many people love to hide behind anonymous and say nasty things “for fun” and the “not so harsh criticisms” were more about a lot of people did not like the voice used to “portray Luann” which i somewhat agree, the actual singer is actually good, BUT while doing “luann” she put a lot of effort in sounding “childlike” and that came off as not right, came as a “kid who is decent but can’t say if she will do great in the future” despite her winning the lead in west side history, she should have sounded like this …………. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u5TCMHN8Ygc one that has learning to do but one knows she has lot of talent

    Every time some one brings up their name they are giving them more free publicity. I don’t.^There’s a difference between saying their names and actually recommending their programs, etc. Plus, how would you be able to “warn” someone (who has since lived under a rock), not to get “drawn in”? If you didn’t use their names to “properly identify” them, you’d be “setting that person up for failure”. – And I suggest you don’t turn to the TV listings channel, as their name will appear there. And I also suggest you don’t try out for Jeopardy, either. Also, don’t forget about shopping- their names are on something in one of the stores that our female family members, friends, etc. shop in… Lol, maybe even a grocery store or two… Or even the Rockets… you never know which one of them might turn up at their games, “suddenly attached” to one of the players. And what if your business is as an electrician or service repairman, and you make your money on repairing something they own? I don’t think they mind mentioning their names in that instance. – And don’t get me started on "the six degrees (give or take a few) of ‘Former Disney Channel Stars’ "…

    while the Sunday strips are out of sequence with the weekly arcs, it is clear from this week’s thread (and even today) that Luann has grown some while Tiffany remains the same (self obsessed fashion queen). When Tiffany was mocking and misinterpreting Luann’s comment about her ‘conflict’ (related to the job offer), Luann just bit her tongue and said nothing. Normally she might have contributed her own snarky comment. She grew further by realizing the greater importance of the summer teaching job offer over a week with Quill in NYC. As for Tiffany, following her brief excursion with Gunther she returned to her same self, i.e. incapable of perceiving that anyone would think negatively about her; some might say she is the eternal optimist and will thrive in the world as a result

    " if we got to see Panel 4, they would see how happy she is and drag her down.".When you see evil everywhere you look, you’re looking in the wrong place..“Tiffany doesn’t NEED an invitation, she’s TIFFANY”-“What is that supposed to mean?”.It means my beloved Tiffany doesn’t wait for an invitation, she assumes people want her to be with them. .“Throwing her a bone doesn’t make them friends, it just means Luann is sorry for her. Which is pretty horrible that Luann recognizes how sad she is yet makes little effort to be her friend.”.Luann had no idea nobody else would buy from her. She was just being decent, even if you fault her for it. Luann was not being horrible by being nice in a limited way. There was no reason to think Tiffany didn’t have plenty of people wanting all her time. Just because we know otherwise doesn’t mean Luann knows everything..Gunther will be good for my beloved Tiffany.He’s a little shy and socially awkward, but Tiffany will more than make up for it.She has a bright future ahead of her with Gunther by her side..“She has no love in her life from anyone.”.Actually, besides Gunther, Luann and Bernice, Tiffany’s father loves her deeply. He just doesn’t know how to express it other than by providing for her physical needs and steering her to a college which will give her a chance to grow as a person. He’s really a sweet man, just socially awkward, like Gunther.

    “Luann is also a self-centered diva, what’s your point?”.Every once in a while, Luann concentrates on Luann. The big thing is that it is not the only thing she does.

    .“They insult her regardless.”.Every once in a blue moon, they express dislike with something she has said or done.You do it with nearly every post, but it doesn’t mean we don’t love YOU..“Luann is just as bad as Tiffany,”.My beloved Tiffany isn’t bad, she’s just drawn that way.

    I like Tiffany. She is not very tactful, and is certainly self-focussed; but she is never so mean-spirited as her critics. In her own way she tries to be a good person, but is too often something of a bull in a china shop. In the case of YouTube trolling, she is taking the right approach in simply noting how many views her makeup tips have received. In fact, her makeup tips are probably useful; she does know grooming.

    Of course these are all fictional characters, but like with any fiction, you’re supposed to take something from it. . . . . "-———————————Well said.

    You wouldn’t date Tiffany, you’d put her on display, but her gratitude might be worth the effort.

    Tiff has had her share of wild fantasies about intimacy with Quill.

    So you acknowledge how bad Tiffany has it right now. Like I’ve said in the past, should Tiffany’s self-confidence bubble ever burst, we’d be looking at a suicide arc. That’s how bad Tiffany’s situation is . She has no love in her life from anyone. . . . . . "-——————————Well Ox and the rest of the football team liked her well enough to help her move into her dorm. And Crystal has seemed to like her alright, Elwood Druit as well. Gunther has always been rather stupidly attracted to her, so was Aaron. . . and in his whimsical way, so was T.J. .Quill probably dislikes Tiff more than Luann and Bernice. We don’t know why. There may be an untold story there, maybe with his uncle in Hollywood.

    Quill and Tiff in Hollywood was IMO one of the first arcs to be dropped abruptly and left hanging. It had great promise to turn out very interesting, but . . . . . . . . .

    if Tiff is a punching bag it’s only because we’ve made her into one. We do the punching not Evans. Tiffany is never made to be sad… angry sometimes but mostly quite happy (on the outside), because she doesn’t see (or choose to see) anything negative directed at her. She doesn’t feel our punches or those of the other characters.. that she herself punches.

    Tiffany always sees the glass as being “half full”. She’s the “eternal optimist”.

    I read the comments on both videos, and while some were indeed negative, or even racist, they are tame in comparison to what Tiff has received.-Why?-(1) Tiffany has less than 400 hundred views. The mere fact that she has any comments at all is astounding. Yes, a YouTube video with thousands of hits will attract trolls. But one with 350? Probably not.- (2) The commenters on Tiff’s video are insulting her on the basis of what must be either her appearance, or voice. In one of the video you linked, a negative comment revolved around how the speaker often ended their sentences with “yeah”. People comment on real grievances like this: delivery and presentation. Not their superficial judgments of some anonymous girl.

    Some of them end up on shows like “Dancing With The Has Been Celebrities Stars”!

    I was thinking, actually of a rather extreme case of this… the very sad story of actress Dana Plato, of “Different Strokes” fame. After the series ended, she tried several different things to get back into the public eye, including a Playboy spread, etc. She was also arrested for robbing a dry cleaners, or some such thing. Tragically, it wasn’t enough, and she ended up OD’ing on drugs and leaving a son behind.

    “I’m not asking for much, just that Evans find a new character to harass”..Yep, still acting like a real person is being forced to act badly sometimes.I’m not asking for much, just that you redo everything to save my lady love..Besides, it looks to me like he is improving my beloved Tiffany gradually without doing a prefrontal lobotomy.One who really appreciated the artistry would let it evolve rather than demand it change in a revolutionary manner.

    “The content of the videos has a bearing on the kind of talk they generate.”^For the most part. I use YouTube like a “radio station” sometimes, and even the conversations on song vids can “degenerate” into “dumbness”…. – And I was looking at a pet video, where people started getting into a “war” over the “tenacity” of certain breeds (e.g., Pit Bull, Rottweiler, etc.)….or whether or not one should ever use a pet carrier at home….

    ""As for Crystal, there are very few strips where she’s isn’t bashing Tiffany. She’s not really her friend, she just enjoys making fun of her. There aren’t any deep Tiffany/Crystal moments"". . . ."-—————————————-Crystal plays the Bernice role in supplying the final panel humor – often in the form of a put-down. If Crystal did not like Tiff at all, why did she hang out with her for years? .Do you think that Bern is no real friend of Luann because of the evidence we have of all those snide remarks. ? Have there been any really deep moments between Luann and Bern?.Those who believe Tiff is pure evil, cannot imagine Crystal finding anything to like in her. .But I think this strip is more subtle than that. It is an interesting issue.

    Tiffany should not have to improve to not be harassed by the people she went to high school with. People like Luann and Bernice need to improve and, if they can’t be nice to her, leave her alone. . . . "-—————————-Well, it’s a comic and they would all have to improve. The whole crowd are by nature sorta weird.. Perfection has no humor. That’s while some don’t care much for Quill. He lacks any flaws, always says and does the right thing.

    “Tiffany should not have to improve to not be harassed by the people she went to high school with.”.Your problem seems to lie in not understanding the meaning of harass or harassment.They are NOT harassing my beloved Tiffany.They are not pressuring her.They are not intimidating her.They are not attacking her.“People like Luann and Bernice need to improve and, if they can’t be nice to her, leave her alone.”.There you go harassing Luann and Bernice.At least by your definition as best I can understand it.They are being nice to her.They don’t hunt her down to bother her.They sometimes disagree with what she says or does, but that is not harassment.You simply fail to feel the love they have for her.This shows who might consider improving and stop harassing Luann, Bernice and those who like them.(Not that you will, that would take development.)
