For help on how to follow a comic title,
I will respond to you because even though I don’t always agree with what you say or the way you say it, you at least add something to the discussion instead of calling people names.My comment about shutting up was not about you, but a response to the comic posted yesterday about “critics don’t count”, which I consider a backhanded way of telling people to shut up. It is just as unhealthy to surround yourself with people who do nothing but sing your praises as is is to have a lot of negativity in your life. You don’t have to agree with, listen to, change anything in response to, or otherwise acknowledge critics. Outright attempts to squash and silence any criticism at all, however, are not right.And now I will follow my own advice and simply leave. At this point I wish Endtown was posted on a site without comments at all. People from both sides of this argument have ruined this website for me.
Yep, I’m done with this both because I don’t like the story and because I don’t like the readers. Nobody here seems to be able to have a reasonable discussion from either side, though I do notice the “fans” are more likely to simply tell other people to shut up.I quit reading Citizen Dog because I said one strip was pretty bad and the entire crowd told me to get lost. I quit reading Big Top because it’s impossible to even discuss the comic anymore since people treat it like a giant chat room. This website needs real moderators, and not this flagging system that just lets people gang up and bully anyone they don’t like instead of people who are actually breaking the rules.
Maybe if we didn’t give kids 5 hours of homework, make them get up way too early for the bus, often without time for breakfast, etc…Today’s phones and tablets and social media are often blamed, but when I was in high school only a few people even had home computers and everybody still slept in class. It’s hardly a new problem. We just find new things to blame it on. (also, some of us actually do have narcolepsy).
I liked both (though there were far more plot holes and annoyances in HP for me than LOTR) but LOTR is much older and has a much larger and more diverse fanbase. I think Jason wins this round.
Keith beat me to it. Cats are insidious! Do not let them has cheezburger!
Eileen’s not a very good fan if she thinks that looks like Dumbledore’s hat. Even someone who’s only seen Harry Potter movie trailers would know better than that!
For everyone who thinks Hobbes is 100% imaginary, as Watterson himself asked: how do you explain the strip where Calvin plays Houdini and Hobbes ties him to the chair in a way nobody could do it alone? Watterson refuses to give a direct answer, but that’s as close as he comes to saying Hobbes is more than just Calvin’s imagination.
Too much lettuce will give you kidney stones anyway.
No, you’re just not getting any smarter.
