    Yea but you probably wouldn't be in business without those customers. That is the conundrum of working in restaurants. I love running a kitchen but I got sick of the customers.

    haha I know, but, why can't people just be civil. Majority of people know what it's like to be around awful people, but they continue to act like asses. I personally, don't do what I wouldn't like done to myself and I do to people the way I want to be treated, most of the time, I do have my off days, just like everyone else.

    damn 3 times before you told him no. I worked at Mcdonalds as a teen and we told a guy no on the first one. Dude bought a big mac and wanted no pickles. He at it all but the last bite and then came to complain. We told him tough luck. He said hed never be back, our owner told him that was fine, mcdonalds doesnt need his money when they have a billion served on the sign. He came back the next week. I laughed.

    Wacker & Slott have nearly 10,000 posts between them. It shouldn't be too difficult to provide a link to an earlier post as an example of what you're criticizing either professional for. That way, others can determine if they agree with your assessment or if there's something that puts the comment in a different context, such as the posting history of the Spider-Man fan in question.
    I've called many people out on this and asked them to find direct quotes. People never seem to find it. As you said, it should be pretty easy.

    Well, ....to be fair....all of their obnoxious stuff has been long deleted...so one can't just go find it among all of their quotes when the garbage and recycling gets taken to the curb in a tidy fashion every tues or thursday ;)

Then someone said we need quotes and people found others. Than Wacker made fun of some people. That fueled the fire. Then Ben Smith made some comments that fueled the fire. We talked about football on Sunday. More quotes were given.

    I had just commented that this thread was going in circles and then you kind of perpetuated that. Nothing personal.

    For someone who's quick to throw out the victim card towards others, I find this post somewhat ironic.

    Is anybody in this thread telling Mr. Wacker to shut up?

    Also, I can see how the "answer all my questions" thing can get pretty annoying. People do get excited when they see him here and start asking him a lot of questions.

    Mr. Busiek, thanks for the thoughtful response. As usual, you've given me a lot to think about.

    This is true, and appears to be the best response. Instead of engaging him, simply report the insulting post.

    I wish I could just buy a spaceship and fly away from all of these arugments on this thread. It's so sad that we see comments directed toward and coming from some creators up here. This saddens me.
    Check out the O.A.W. Report at www.majinoaw.blogspot.com. You want to see why I say the things I do or understand what's in my head... this is the place to go.

    "Super geniuses", that's not insulting at all. It's amazing, I see posts like this all the time but when the creator calls them out all the sudden they are shouting "you should act in a professional manner!!!!".
