    Let it die. Make them have to comment on the Facebook page. This forum has spiraled into fanboy masturbation. I mean, when a thread like 'I want to punch this in the face' is getting that much attention you know things are bad. The old guard, that came for the discussion and new comics focus and the podcast, is no longer interested in keeping the jerkoffs at bay. Why keep feeding their tripe? The true forum community comes out in celebratory threads. That's not enough to warrant keeping it going. You'll find the focus will sharpen on Facebook.

    "you don't know what it's like to have to think about the color of your skin all the time."

    Correct, I don't, but only because I don't give a shit about the color of skin. Remove it & we all look a like. If I inquire "I don't understand why you have to think about it all the time" I'm told "that's because you're white privileged"
    You may not see skin - but not everyone can say that. Because it's what they see in the mirror or on their hands, etc. They have to see it. Every day. And there are people who don't ever let you forget that you have that skin. Like the guy who called me a spic without knowing who I was or hearing me speak or anything. In one second, because he was trying to set me up for a mugging or something, he knew because of how I look.

    So yes. Not giving a shit? It is a privilege. That's what people mean when they say you don't know what it's like. Even I thought I could avoid that. I've been proven wrong enough times to know that 'not seeing skin' is a luxury others can't afford.

    Re: Peter and John: Hmmmm. So I guess there ARE rivalries within the comics podcasting universe. This one obviously has some history. Wish there was some comics journalism to cover it.
    Rivalry implies that I give a poop what John does podcast wise. Haven't listened to a full episode since maybe 2006/7? :blush:

    John, on the other hand, does listen. And butts in negatively too often which got him chased away from the 11 O'clock and CGS forums a few years back. He's the epitome of the 'Well, actually...' guy. And then will plug his interviewees ad nauseum. (As proven above). Can't get through a podcast panel without name dropping his 'friends'.

    Solitaire Rose referenced when John decided to make fun of Jamie D and Pants on an episode of his other podcast and it got back to me. So I called him on it. Jamie even thanked me for doing so.

    John also tried to butt in during the Mike debacle somehow feeling John was owed an explanation as to what happened behind the scenes.

    I also know John's biggest issue with some podcasters is that we/they have never invited him on our podcasts. How's that for sour grapes?

    The beauty of it is I have it all well documented for anyone to hear/view. Like a true journalist. Lol

    All he can say about me is that I'm a dick. I mean seriously, this is news??

    To the Word Buffoon. I never said Twomorrows doesn't get nominated.

    Learn some listening comprehension.

    Fact: when the Eisner changed their description to include the word "Journalism", Twomorrows HASN'T won in that category.
