You know, being the accidental focus of the Flamewar Du Jour is starting to get to me. Sometimes I'm really tempted to just delete the entire comic archive and go live in a cabin in the woods with no Internet connection. But then The Trolls Will Have Won, so I'm suppressing that urge for now.
And no, I don't consider Scott Kurtz one of the above-mentioned Trolls. I've never met him, but the available evidence suggests that he's a really nice and friendly guy who just doesn't believe in weighing his words - a vice, if it is one, that I totally respect. Some of his self-appointed defenders, though ...
Also, apropos of that, would my self-appointed defenders please be a bit less, how you say, enthusiastically militant about the whole silly thing? Especially when you "defend" complete drivel that I'm supposed to have said but actually didn't, but also in general. I'm not joking when I say that I don't enjoy this. Could y'all, like, turn the other cheek on my behalf and let it all die out? Pretty please?
