And because I've criticized Marvel in the past, and he doesn't like it he's allowed to simply call me "REALLY obnoxious"? OK.
How about this one:
Mr. Mets, should I be sharing my personal info. on the site or not? Does it somehow get me more credit on CBR?
Just in case:
As I've shared in the past when prompted by Mr. Wacker.
My name is Ari Gold. I live in Houston, TX. I shop comics primarily at Bedrock City, though sometimes at Third Planet as well. Wanna be LinkedIn buddies?
EDIT: I sincerely don't believe people should be encouraged to post their personal info. on this site.

I don't want get into a discussion of the rules. Those are usually handled internally. It's time-consuming, a distraction, and a comparison of how Wacker and Slott are treated relative to other posters requires a public airing of private grievances, as well as a discussion about comments that got people banned, which allows the once-banned party an opportunity to get more exposure for a comment that was determined to be out of line, and inappropriate for these boards.
The thread's about Wacker and Slott's behavior online, and whether it's appropriate. I think an important part of determining that is to view their comments in context.
Speaking of which see your PM box.
As for your personal infor, Wacker doesn't seem to like anonymous critics. Especially those he believes are harsher on the internet than they would be to his face.
Others on this board have presented arguments in favor of anonymous criticism.
Wacker can encourage others to post their personal info. And others can ignore his advice.
CBR does have a preference for real names. It's one reason we have a limit on handle changes unless it is to something based on your real name.
I had my sig as a while "I dropped Marvel comics because of Stephen Wacker" with a link to one of the posts where he was particularly jerky or something.
Eventually, y'all told me that each time I posted with that sig it was an affront to SW and a call for him to respond in kind, so I removed it.
You just asked me in PM to again ignore Wacker. I have him on ignore and rarely reply directly to any of his posts . . .
Sorry Shaggy I like you, but that just seems odd to me...
EDIT: It truly has helped. Once in a while though it rears its head where he's just on the board blitzing anyone that criticizes a book he's on, and it becomes harder to ignore. But again, in general I rarely interact directly with Mr. Wacker.
