X_tech — I don’t understand either. The site is free; the strips are a gift, and there’s no coercion. Why would someone willingly read a comic, then come to its forum, which I consider to be just like walking into the cartoonist’s art gallery, just to write mean-spirited critiques and even diatribes about the perceived faults of the strip. It’s rude and unnecessary, Why spoil other people’s enjoyment? Yesterday’s “Agnes” forum was an even more horrid example.
