I had this verbal explosion in the last post about YWiB. You bring up a good point about it being inflammatory rhetoric. I guess my problem with it is that I bloody HATE inflammatory rhetoric. I’ve also realized that, on further review, the other writers on YWiB are kinda funny. For instance, the once-mentioned Seven Deadly Sins article wasn’t written by him, it was written by Lilith Ester, one of three writers on YWiB that don’t suck. So it’s just Solomon that takes my face in his hands and physically grinds my teeth for me. He’s a damn bully, but hey, maybe in the future the writers of those crap webcomics will look upon him fondly for being rough on them. Or not, considering how I feel about people who chased me with sticks when I was little.

MGK is right, it’s a matter of taste. A lot of people seem to like him because he’s a dick. I don’t like him… because he’s a dick. Yeah, he’s being a dick to a cadre of webcomics writers/artists that may or may not be dicks, but in the end he’s still a big, honking dick. He gets on his targets’ backs for masturbating with MS Paint, but just what the fuck does he think he’s doing? Just because flaming people excites him and he fondles Notepad when he thinks it’s sleeping, instead of getting it on with webcomic tripe, doesn’t mean he’s not doing the same thing. I’m not saying he’s doing the exact same thing, that’s a ridiculous notion. But just because he’s not wasting Kleenex at the same alarming rate his targets are doesn’t suddenly make it not self-masturbatory.

So, Solomon shouldn’t have taken Mookie to task for trivializing rape?

He’s not just a big, honking dick, he’s a big, honking dick who’s right!

The thing is . . . the reasoning that people use to attack him should protect him. You think Solomon’s ways are wrong and no one should do them? You’re undercutting your own position by gunning for Solomon.
