    And it only gets worse with Facebook.

    Good morning, Cathy clan!

    legaleagle48: I don’t know who the hell peed in your Cheeri-O’s yesterday to make you turn on me the way you did but I’ll have you know that I didn’t appreciate it. Just because I defended you to someone that called you a hater and a troll, that doesn’t mean I was thinly disguising the fact that I agreed with them. Because if I did, I either would have kept silent or I would have just come right out and said I agreed with them.


    And as far as the Cathy/pen/diary storyline goes, just because I don’t remember it doesn’t mean I don’t believe it happened — just the opposite, as a matter of fact [and I even said as much]. I read approximately 81 comics every day — 7 days a week — [yes, I know, as a stay-at-home wife, I’ve obviously got no life] and it’s completely impossible for me to remember every single subject/storyline of every single one of them — especially as long as a year later so I’m sorry that if by my not remembering a specific Cathy comic that was so important to you came across as not believing you. That certainly wasn’t what I meant and I’m sorry if you were offended.


    I’ve been a regular reader/poster here for 5 years now. Anyone that “knows” me knows that if anything, I try to be a peacemaker between people who don’t get along and are very vocal about it so that this little corner of the Go Comics universe is always a pleasant place to visit — not only for us regulars but also for anyone else who just happens to stop by. I’ve quit reading other comics and their comments because of the nastiness there and I’ve just always been determined not to let that happen here. So given that, you can’t possibly imagine how bad I felt after that little “sucker-punch in the stomach” you gave me. I hope it was worth it . . . that by being mean and rude to me, it built you up and made you feel a whole lot better about yourself yesterday. At least my very existence won’t be for nothing as far as you’re concerned and I’ll have cheered you up a least a little bit anyhow.

    Hey, Gretchen’s Mom!
    I have always enjoyed your comments. I am so sorry you were ’sucker-punched (comment-wise) by one of the other commenters! This is not why we are here. Anyone who deals evil to others will get it back by the power of 3.
    Please feel better! There are so many of us who like you and like being here, uplifting others.

    Thanks for your kind words, Teresa, I really appreciate it. You try your best to be kind in what seems like a mostly unkind world and sometimes, this is just the thanks you get for it so it’s always nice to know there are people like you out there who really do appreciate the nice little things that people try to do for them [and others]. Normally I try to let things like that go and not feed the trolls but this just seemed so mean and uncalled-for that I simply couldn’t help but respond to it this time.


    My apologies to all my “Cathy” friends here.

    Oh no! I’m so sorry that this happened to you – you’re so nice and you just want to come to the comics/Cathy for a nice place to enjoy. Most of us are pleasant, but sometimes some are not. :-( Please just ignore him!!! Legaleagle is so thin-skinned that he always starts something with someone every once in a while, and while most of us understand that others’ comments have good intentions, he usually interprets things in a negative manner. And since he’s so thin-skinned, I’m sure he’ll slam me in some way. But, as usual, I’ll ignore him. Just let people like him get themselves in trouble… don’t let him drag you down with him!
    We all have a good time together, so please forget it and remember that the rest of us are friends! Hugs!

    Thanks so much for your kind words, too, Sis. I really appreciate them, as well, and will try my best to follow your advice. All I was trying to do was defend someone from something that someone else said that I didn’t think was right or fair and the unexpected insults I got in return just came from out of nowhere and caught me completely by surprise. And do you know what else got me? Legaleagle didn’t even have anything to say in response to the original commenter but sure didn’t have a problem telling me what he thought of me! Oh, well. What can you do? Haters are just gonna hate and there’s nothing you can do to change their minds or attitudes because that’s just the way they are.
    (((( Hugs )))) to you too!!!!! ;-)

    I wish I had these people here with me right now, eagerly wanting to help me fix whatever’s going on with my laptop, because I sure could use the advice. And to think this thing is still practically brand new too — it’s only about 3 months old!!!!!


    Hi, rgcviper!


    lightenup: I cleared out all my cookies last night before doing a complete hard shut down and I’m still having the same problems I described yesterday. I’m not a GC “Pro” like you [and a lot of others] are. Do you think that might have anything to do with not being able to see my calendar anymore? That unless I give them money now, I can no longer see it? How much do they charge to be a “Pro”? What all do you get for the money? [But even if that part were true, that still doesn’t explain what’s going on at the other (2) websites that I’m having problems with too.] Well, on the upside, it cuts down on quite a bit of comment reading and writing that I now no longer have to worry about anymore, that’s for sure!!!!! ;-)


    Hello and Happy Thursday, fellow “Cathy” fans. Hope everyone is staying warm as best they can! ;-)

    Wow!! So sorry that happened to you of all people!! I hope there just might have been some misunderstanding of what you were trying to say — I got it just fine. I think since so many of the comments sites are so vicious, some folks might find it hard to believe that anyone might be trying to be nice, but we have always made the effort to keep Cathy on a civil grounding — even when we disagree. I hope you’ve recovered!!

    My computer crashed about a month ago and I’m having all kinds of trouble too. I think somebody is messing with all the comics — the ones I got from one of the Seattle papers (I think it’s Comics Kingdom) are now included with the Oregon paper, and I can’t even get to the other site anymore. My Gocomics were really late today — which usually means they are having trouble with something — in the past it has been AOL for me. I wish they would stop “improving,” because I just get everything working right and they screw around with it. I don’t like the new “Add Strip” because I keep moving the cursor off of it before I can get where I want to “add” the comic, and then I have to start over. Anyway, be patient, they will probably fix the problem eventually — or you can write to them and complain like I do if it goes on too long.

    Regarding your computer, I don’t think being a Pro will make a difference. So are you saying that this has only been a problem on your new computer?
    And all of the problems you’re having is regarding leaving or seeing comments? Also, do you normally get to your comics via email, or do you go directly to Any details will help
    p.s. I agree with your assessment yesterday. I think you meant well, but he didn’t take it well (not sure why, but that’s typical… many others have clashed with him also. Remember Aaron and Billy had trouble with him also? So, it’s not you, it’s him.

    Personally, the snacks would’ve attracted me more than the technology. That’s just me, though.
    You might try the Comics Kingdom website to access the Comics Kingdom strips. For a rate of around $20 a year (pretty reasonable), you have access to a LOT of good comics. Good luck.

    HI, MOM. So sorry to hear of your trouble with another commenter recently. I always try to remember that communication online often comes out as we didn’t exactly mean it, so maybe it was just a misunderstanding. You’re definitely an upbeat, positive person, and I enjoy seeing you here on the “Cathy” page and around GoComics.

    Hello, “Cathy” Clan.

    GretchensMom, please accept my sincere apology. You’re right — I should have realized that you were only trying to keep the peace by responding to the real troll in the room. However, I did respond directly to him/her/it, and asked him/her/it exactly what I did to him/her/it to deserve the unwarranted attack. I misinterpreted your comment to mean that you sometimes think that I am a troll (nothing could be further from the truth, as a matter of fact; I have never gone out of my way to insult anyone. In fact, if your friends had bothered to read what I originally posted, they would have seen that and not automatically assumed that I was out to beat up on anyone, least of all you!

    To put it as succinctly as I can: Just because you disagree with what I say (or how I say it), it doesn’t make me a troll. I. AM. NOT. A. TROLL.

    Got that? Good. Now, let’s move on.
