Abuse and insults.
That's not true. That's the way I deal with people who annoy me. You really should read my posts more thoroughly.
Hey, Jim? Forget the Gutters, forget the Internet.
That's not how you do it in the Real World.
What? And give up show biz?
Your above post goes into your permanent file. not MY permanent file-- the Web's permanent file; from now on, you'll be known webwide as 'the so-so cartoonist who tries to get ahead by shitting on other cartoonists'.
I'm not trying to "get ahead". As always, I'm fucking with people who annoy me
. Again, READ the posts, don't ASSUME.
Danny Hellman, okay, he can do it because he has decades' worth of cred; if Hellman rips your work up, you may not like it, but you have to grin and bear it. (I fucking know.)
That's a common misconception held by stupid people.
You don't have to even be an artist to criticize artists, you just have to have an opinion.
But you? James A Bogner? Who the Hell are you?
I just told you. READ THE POST.
What lifts your online strip so vast a distance above Ed's?
Nobody said anything about that except you. It's not necessary for reasons I just gave.
Do you think it's ethical to promote your strip by dissing other strips, as you do?
I don't do that. Now you're just kidding me!
James, the above are sincere questions.
Really? Did someone other than you
ask them? I guess I missed that.
How about some sincere answers?
Surely you already know my catch-all answer to any questions you ask me. Why don't you say it just to show me you know?
