    I’d wear that shirt!

    I’m glad you made the “mistake.” I hadn’t even considered the possibility it could be Vera, but once you brought it up it made for a verrrry interesting “what if” alternate direction.

    On average, about half a foot?

    With her Lunarian physiology, wouldn’t Mysta get better results from a moon tan? It worked for Golden Earring…

    To make a pun.

    Technically, a “URL” that one needs to copy and paste into the address bar is different from a “link” that needs only to be clicked on. I was discussing and debating this difference on another comic’s comment section just yesterday.

    Aw, geez… where’s Will Decker when you need him?

    I’m glad to hear that, because I never thought we were anywhere near arguing at all. :-)

    I’m only trying to point out, albeit with incomplete information, that there might be a way to see some sort of pattern in GoComics’ actions.

    Where you might see “inconsistency”, I might see a consistent double standard of ignoring benign off-site links while focusing on every instance that contains even the slightest perception of legal exposure.

    And from my experience, if there’s a disagreement in principles between a big company and an average Joe, Joe don’t stand a chance. But if there’s a similar disagreement between two companies with expensive lawyers on payroll and retainer, like GoComics and Twitter, well let’s just say that either side is going to tolerate a LOT MORE liberties taken by the opposition before deciding to escalate the fight. Plus, GoComics picking a fight with Twitter is David vs. Goliath. GC isn’t going there…

    I can’t control the actions of others, so trolls are gonna troll, haters gonna hate, and flaggers gonna flag. But I can control my actions, and I choose (hopefully wisely) to try and add value, insight, and context to comment threads by easily providing off-site URLs for others to follow. They will always refer to trustworthy, law-abiding sites containing limited but pertinent “fair use” materials or offering genuine licensed works that fully compensate any and all rights holders.

    I do this in the belief that any repercussions will be borne my me alone, and as long as that’s the case then it’s a risk I’m willing to continue taking.Because I also believe that, if my posts aren’t undercutting any legitimate business’s ability to make a profit, infringing on any rights holder’s intellectual property, or being mean to other readers — well, then the reliable corporate employee motivation of “why take action if I can take a break instead” will likely keep me out of the crosshairs.

    But what you described is that both of them are out. That’s not the way it should be either but it provides a cautionary tale of karmic payback that you would hope discourages trouble-making rabble-rousers.

    That is a distinction I did not think about. A case could be made that GoComics could broadly define the term “links” to include both.
