People like Mike (aka Stillanerd) are the audience Dan dreads will steadily multiply, as they are, so he tries to shop around trying to recruit as many new readers as possible before they become the “cranky vets” who see through the sheer shock of the new and see and now expect the same old song.

    Hmmm. Isn't that odd. Cheesedique posts a picture from that site here and now that site is speaking about this thread.

    and also this...

    Thanks for taking the time read and comment, Cheesedique. There was a part of me that wanted to register and comment on CBR yesterday, but years ago it was made clear that tactfully defending myself when Dan Slott throws personal attacks my way was somehow off limits. I wanted to find a way to digitally shake your hand, so your comment allows me to do so now. Again, good stuff.

    It was a sheer pleasure to watch someone a.) dismantle Dan Slott’s run on ASM in a clear and concise way, and b.) call him out on his diversionary tactics.

    I’m surprised his buddy Mr. Mets didn’t find an excuse to step in and stop the beat-down. Anyone who can expose Dan Slott’s giant logical fallacy smoke screen gets three cheers in my book.

    i don’t think he understands what “death of the author "actually is. or a troll.

    Well, I like Dan Slott and that's all that really matters to me


    Honestly, it doesn't matter who the writer is, there will always be a vocal minority of people who hate what is going on right now.

    For sure. It happens all the time.. Everything always used to be better, until the new thing comes out, and then the new thing sucks and the old, previously bad thing becomes underrated and great. Some people just hate popular things, some people have so much of their identity tied into being different or more refined or "having high standards" that they cannot like the current popular thing.

    That's not sarcasm, either.

    I read through the site and it was fun if not creepy but every blog started with a false premise. If I were Slott it would drive me insane

    Seems to be failing.

    As a geophysicist, let me tell you what the craziest thing on that page ACTUALLY is: the phrase "seal the ozone layer." DAFUQ?

    The dude that runs that blog has way too much time on his hands and a scarily impressive imagination.

    I'm kind of speechless.

    -Pav, who... um...
    You were Spider-Man then. You and Peter had agreed on it. But he came back right when you started feeling comfortable.

    You know what it means when he comes back
    .

    I feel like this isn't the first time we've run across Mr. Ernst.

    Just can't remember the reason for last time. Oh wait! It was Peter crying while Otto erased the memories of his loved ones during their mind-fight.
