    Uhhh ... here's an idea. Why not try to make something funny yourself?

    Seriously, all you guys are idiots "wah, wah wah, this isn't funny - I could show you what's funny, but i'm not going to because you don't deserve it!"

    I don't need to. I don't have my own website that supposed to be amusing. I'm a consumer, expressing my distaste with a product that never should have been made. Trying to save the sanity of future readers by encouraging the removal of this comic from the internet.

    Also, be fair. Some have come up with versions of the comic that are quite funny. Mine just happen to be abrasive (one was so abrasive that it was removed from the internet as well.

    A "consumer"? Have you ever paid for anything here? Do you even look at/click on ads? Oh let me guess, you block those too because you ...

    Here's an idea: how about you try to go make a website.

    No wait, here's a better idea: why don't you go troll at a different website!

    MFD has become the equivalent of banner advert sized signatures on forums that only amuse the original poster. Here's one step further than the dialog free version...

    Frame 1 : Tired cliché. Frame 2 : Worn out cliché. Frame 3 : No one laughs.

    Technically speaking, I guess the advertisers are the consumers and the readers are the product. But if the readership drops due to the inclusion of say, extremely pointless and unfunny content, then the advertisers will be upset, and they will leave too.

    Some of the responses are a lot funnier than the original.

    Think of it this way - what if your favorite "free" (ad-supported) over-the-air radio or TV station started playing annoying, boring or offensive content (or at least, moreso than usual). You would be perfectly justified in complaining, and guess what? People do complain to TV and radio networks all the time.

    BTW, I hope you are not implying that blocking ads is "freeloading". Maybe you would also agree with some of TV execs who claim that skipping TV ads is "stealing".

    Do you watch/listen to EVERY commercial that plays on your favorite TV/radio station?

    A consumer is someone who consumes. In this case poor quality cartoon content. There's nothing that says money/goods have to change hands. So you'll have to try a bit harder to be a dick.

    I also want to point out that I also contribute to the content of the website via the forums. I can tell that neither of you trolls (bowser and ~) do because if you did, you would be "registered" users.

    On the subject of advertising: No I don't remove ads. Just today I clipped an ad from this site and posted a comment about it in the forums. This statement does nothing more than prove that I view the ads, which is more than you can say. Do YOU view and click on ads? Arrogant prick.

  • SomeCoder (unregistered) in reply to Adrian

    Yes, I thought that as well.

    Comic = FAIL

  • T $ (cs) in reply to LKM

    I'm very pleased with the look and feel of this. I'm wondering how long before there are comments that work their way into being comic book series of their own, complete with recurring characters and themes.

    Going around with MasterPlanAsshat and stating "here is your mug" or "give me teh codez" on every post is not being a useful contributor.... Sorry.

    Shouldn't you guys just ignore it? By constantly going to the comments page and participating in the discussion... you're actually increasing page views.

    But that's beside the point -- no editor/producer/blogger is going to listen to a handful of whining "this is poop" comments... have any of you sent Alex a non-anonymous, thoughtful opinion? Perhaps, engage in a one-on-one dialog? I doubt it... that's no fun, but peeing in the pool sure is!

  • Morbii (cs) in reply to ArghMyEyes

    Maybe this was sarcastic, but I don't see how it implies that they are poor. It implies that they are all kids, though.

    We have. One strip was amended with a better joke that a registered user supplied. Since then, the strips just trudge on.

    If you actually looked farther than up our own ass, you'd find that that's not what I do. Do some research.

    You obviously missed the thread over in General Discussion... Alex was a part of that thread and had positive things to say about it.

    Well, it looks like the TDWTF supports posting (and receiving feedback on) your own version of the comic... so, where are these supposedly funnier comics? There are a few clever jabs, but not a single funnier* one.

    The southpark one I thought was hysterical. But then again, that episodes of SP was great.
