Raider13: insightful? I think the spellchecker just didn't get what you were trying to type - they are not that good. Unless you mean it is full on inciting, as in inciting a fight? In which case it would be a neologism...
I think Plasma just abhors an empty comments field. Notice he is usually the first commenter? Maybe he is the webmaster in a cunning disguise. From his gift of stating the obvious I also suspect she's my flatmate though, and she's not working.
Actually Galdon, while I didn't down-vote him, I found his comment to be so obvious as to be insulting. Of course the last line is meant to be the on that makes the whole thing funnier. Sometimes Scott misses, but those of us who read his stuff daily recognize when he does not (as now). To point it out is to take away some of the humor. His post was stupid. I did not vote it down however because it was not egregiously stupid. If I voted all stupid posts down I would spend most of my time doing that rather than enjoying the comics (which would be a waste of time).
In short, you are correct that his posting is factually correct insofar as his opinion statement is based on a fact that we all agree on. You are incorrect in stating that there is nothing wrong with his post. It was an idiotic posting adding nothing to the conversation and taking away somewhat of the humor itself.
Nicely done Galdon i usually ignore the longer posts but yous was incitefull and brilliant..and for once I'm not being sarcastic...weird. And what the heck is up with the spell check not knowing how to spell incitefull? I know i misspelled it but the spell checks ideas were worse.
OK!!! I have had ENOUGH of this. I've been watching the bashing of the user named Plasma over numerous strips without comment, but i've about had enough, he does not say anything offensive, his posts have no leet speak. He has done absolutely nothing to warrant the intense hatred his comments are treated with. So what if a person likes to comment, some comic strips have ENTIRE FORUMS dedicated to commenting on the comic!
I do not believe you people even READ his posts but rather snap off a quick insult at him and down rate regardless of what he says, just for that little bit of a false sense of superiority. By latching onto him to harass and bully, every one of you who has done this are by all rights trolls. You might think its 'ok' to do so because so many others do it, but it is not. Seriously what did he do, just look at this one post, down rated to -14 at the time of my posting, and the only two other coments on this page are to insult him. but look at his post, READ IT, and i challenge you to find something wrong with it. there is none.
I am personally surprised that you people yourselves hadn't seen the ban hammer for this kind of behavior yet.
