    They’re right, you know. It’s very spooky.

    It’s bad enough when GT pushes his liberal views on us, but a week of mail reading is just hogwash!

    When did Mark get white hair anyway? Yeah, I know Mike is getting white around the temples anyway…

    Maybe it was his experience living with Chase…

    Nobody is pushing anything on you. You have to come to him. If you don’t like what they serve at a restaurant, then why eat there? It’s no as though there aren’t other choices. (You can read Mallard Filmore instead.) It is not as though reading cartoons is necessary to your existence.

    This is the whole absurdity of trolling on the Gocomics page. People read cartoons for pleasure they get from doing so. People read Doonesbury on this page because they like Doonesbury, presumably. It’s not like a newspaper where you might read something you dislike just because it is there, on the page, next to other things you want to read. The majority of people who read Doonesbury here, or any other cartoon on Gocomics, are people who like cartoons, and like this cartoon enough to go to this page to read it. The comment section exists so that people of similar taste can chat about the thing they have all come here to read. Why would someone who hates Doonesbury come to this page? Why would someone attack GT in a place where his friends (if sometimes critical friends) gather? -- I can only think of one reason: they want an audience they can sneer at and insult with impunity. Brisbane Kid’s comment is pretty mild as trolling goes, and maybe he likes Doonesbury overall in spite of everything. So, correct me, Kid, if I am wrong about you.

    Nevertheless, there is some kind of pathology at work in the troll.

    A question for everybody concerning trolling on discussion pages like this, or even more so pages that are actually serious public forums (fora?) as on news sites, rather than humor sites.

    Some places allow their discussion pages to be complete free-for-alls where rational and polite discussion mixes with sociopathy, paranoia, hatefulness, venom, and simply strongly held contrary views.
    Other places mediate the discussion by not posting comment that are abusive or off-topic.
    At least one place posts everything, but requires that the posting be made under the real name and town of the poster, so that those who make nasty comments cannot at least do so behind a mask of anonymity.

    Do any of you who happen to read this have an opinion about this?

    The online environment is not like a newspaper or a public forum. It is not Hyde Park Corner, nor a community bulletin board, nor the “letters” section of the Times. It is something NEW, and is not actually like the things that we metaphorically compare it to. Just a thought.

    Ah, but the troll does enjoy complaining, creating rancour, and generally disturbing others, preferably from the comfort and anonymity of a keyboard. So the troll goes looking for where they can do that. So neoCons come to Doonesbury, for example, to belittle and complain and share their faux outrage.

    Besides, commenting on Mallard Fillmore is no fun, nobody’s reading it, so no one will see your “witty” remarks. Although if there were witty or erudite remarks, then at least there might be something funny or intelligent on the Fillmore comic page.

    I have this image in my head of a cartoon… maybe Harry Bliss… with Hobbs on a Shrink couch complaining about living with an adolesent for over 40 years.

    Mark does not have one foot in the grave. He has no feet at all.

    Why does Mike look like a younger Larry King?
