I wish comics shops had more of an emphasis on other genres and had gentle introduction sections for both kids and those new to comics as well as more female-positive collections. I don't go to comics shops very often (they're few and far between)… [more]

Unfortunately, I'd say you need to get back up on the ladders and double check the battery connections on all 6. Why do they seem always to go off in the middle of the night, and how do they know when to do it? I don't know if this is… [more]

It's weird to hear someone alerted the cops to two kids walking down the street. All age-appropriateness and cultural shifts aside, if I saw a single 6 year old walking down the street, it might give me pause if I couldn't see a nearby adult… [more]

I use Sublime Text 2 on a Mac as my text editor as of late. My favorite feature is the keystroke to wrap selected text in a link, which I do lots of to write basic HTML for posts. [more]

Yeah, I'm sorry how this played out yesterday Joe, but you do often get into arguments on the site about this topic, and your deleted post on the heels of the earlier attacks felt like half double post, half get your own blog about this subject… [more]

I saw David Chang's screed yesterday and was really disappointed in it. It really does read like "the internet ruins everything, and I used to find obscure bands but now everyone can hear their music and that sucks" but I like David Chang,… [more]

I watched this last night on TiVo and it was really cute and funny, made both seem more human, but what you don't see in the clip is it goes on and on throughout the night on the show. Later they play a guessing game and Kidman keeps it up and keeps… [more]

I think there should be a note any time a comment is deleted I think that's a bit too much and would inundate contentious discussions, and introduce tons of MetaTalk style comments in the blue. As a mod I should be more precise with… [more]

The original comment and a jokey response to it were flagged and deleted. None of the follow up comments (all made minutes after the deletion) were flagged. As always, we can't have mod eyes and ears everywhere so you should flag things like this… [more]

Yeah, I agree with Ivan upthread that any of these proposed solutions would put more emphasis and attention on deleted comments that would ultimately be problematic. I think we'll stick to the current status quo and ask people to flag replies to… [more]
