Hi! I was the author of this comic. I've known about the review since it was posted, but I've never really strongly disagreed with it, even at the time. It gets right down to the core problems of the comic and it's an entertaining read. If I recall correctly, the review was written around the time I began to shut the comic down and started being less of an annoying internet shit-head. I don't really have a lot to say other than, I was 13, new to the internet, thought memes were cool, and I was just having fun with it. I think even the review makes that pretty clear. After that comic, I learned the important lesson of being absolutely confident of something before you send it out into the wild web. So, there's a win for the wiki.
At this point, I think the comic is over 7 years old and hasn't been online for 5. That's long enough, right? The only thing that ever bothered me was the inclusion of both of our full names and general locations, which I felt was kind of weird for someone who knew the authors were young teenagers. With that, please humbly consider my desperate plea to delete the article. If the consensus is that it should stay, then it's just a desperate plea to remove the full names and locations. At the very least, my co-author didn't deserve to be mentioned at all, he was a smashing dude with a minimal involvement in the comic and doesn't deserve to be lumped in with my dumb ass.

I hope that read out okay, I know sometimes people like to hide in some passive aggressive type shit in their responses or suck up to get what they want, but generally I just like the happy ending and closure of these kinds of things, and my intention is to close the book on my irritating teenage adventures. I'm sure everyone cares a whole lot.

Thanks.

I think we could stand to remove the review.

If nothing else we could remove the full names and locations of the author's.

My review of Dume got pulled when the author asked us nicely to, after he took said comic off the Internet.  I see no reason not to.

Welp, the comic was deleted, the guy admits it was bad and it isn't a super noteworthy review. Plus he has a legitimate reason to want it gone and he's not being a dick about it. That fills all my criteria for removing something. Put his response in the response section and delete it.

Thank goodness, we were starting to wonder where you'd gotten to, boss (as many a post will attest to.)

Hopefully, that doesn't make you turn back around and leave again. We kind of lost our minds for a bit in your absence (even more than usual.)

Smash wants to send Obama to jail, Long Tom non-ironically wants that Mexican border wall, Plarblman exhibits a certain ... antipathy towards the Democratic Party, izzus most sensibly keeps his mouth shut and I and Sindy want to bring back real socialism to the masses and make The Internationale the BWW anthem as well, I guess (I also lost a bet to one of our Mexican representative over the election). The Zoophobians are still keeping to their zone despite our invitations to take a step outside as of now.

So basically same old same old (I mean, that's like been going on for months) and unlike just about everywhere else on the web I know of, everyone leaves the politics in the politics threads for the best part and act like civilised human beings in the other ones. Well, except for the thread about you where things got a bit stupid. You seem to have that effect on us even when you're not here.

Everyone still generally agrees that they're not big fans of Willis, Diaz and Hunt, so there's at least that still uniting us.

(edit: Nearly forgot - the latest review to be added to the Wiki is in both English *and* Spanish thanks to our South and Central American contingent, so that's kind of exciting.)

Oh hey! Oddguy! You're not dead! You managed to miss out on a week and a half of random forum downtime. Also, Zoophobia ended, so some of the people who exclusively posted in that thread have begun wandering out into the forum proper. Don't be surprised to see people with hundreds of posts you've never noticed before.

There were a couple flare-ups but most of it never escalated beyond heated debate.

Everyone who refuses to kiss the feet of that leather handbag who ran against Trump is a Nazi. You know that.

I want him in a prison built into the border wall with Mexico, and for Hillary to pay for it.
