in summation, we like to have fun on the internet and you don'tNope. Not saying that. If I'm rude I expect rudeness, if I'm not I don't expect it. But from some I expect it whether I'm rude or not. Ben Smith for one will go for the cheap shot or the sarcastic response 6 times out of 10. Wacker is the same way. I try not to be rude, but I don't waver from my views or opinions. I think much of what marvel puts out can be a lot better and I think that the direction they take -in my view elvating the villain at the cost of the hero or turning the hero into a villain and back again- isn't a good one and the quality of the stories suffer from quick plot convenience and lazy writing/editing. I've stated that and I've stated reasons and Wacker has often responded with condescension at best and amused cynical enjoyment of my anger at worst. That's why I put him on the ignore list. There is no point in either of us talking to each other or paying attention to each other. Safe in his job and his power he views the comic book characters one way and I view them another. The difference is that he has all the power to change them and I have none. That is the attitude he has brought to every argument we've ever had and he always tops it off with 'drama queen' and/or 'you love it' and finally 'well you must like them, I know you're still buying them, don't deny it' and I can almost hear the laughter as he types.
Doesn't mean that I'm not guilty too. I've posted in anger and later regretted it. I feel guilty about that but after a certain time you can't go back and edit because the words have been there too long.
