POKING A PIG DEPT...
I notice that on the FACEBOOK page of someone whose post on the so-called comics industry I addressed in some detail recently, the usual pathetic band of desperadoes have congregated to take a pop at me. The writer of the post has taken refuge behind the convenient (though erroneous) claim that I 'distorted and manipulated' what he was saying, but, tellingly, fails to provide even one example. Way to go, that man! That's because such claims are easy to make, but impossible to substantiate, as the merest glance at my rebuttal shows that I comprehensively exposed the fragile foundation on which his tenuous assertions were built.
From obsessing on a throwaway, humorous remark of mine and categorizing it as a 'violent statement', to permitting derogatory remarks from a former Debenhams' employee (if anyone's a 'nob', it's you, CS), it's nothing more than a love-fest between a small bunch of deluded individuals devoted to a minor, short-lived comic from 30 years ago. The comic was second-rate back then, and time hasn't altered its status one whit. Strange that my small group of obsessed detractors are all pals of one another, or connected in some way. Strange - and telling.
And isn't it odd that whenever they take against someone who holds a different opinion to them, they never address the subject, but instead try to dismiss their perceived opponent as a 'troll'. Are some people really that insecure? Yup, seems like it. The fact that some of them try to submit sniping comments to my blog on an almost daily basis (which I never publish, to increase their vexation) reveals who the real trolls are. An irony that appears lost on them.
Right, let's get back to talking about comics. Real comics, I mean - not mere pretenders to the name.
