it's some sort of greatest hits of whinging and excuse making.

I've actually started writing comics over the last few months, but I am decidedly amateur and learning the form. Me putting up a comic script to VERSUS YOU would do what... ? prove you've been writing comics for twenty years?


Oh, I wouldn't want you to go toe to toe with me, the results would be pitiable. You were simply being spiteful for no reason. I know how many hits I've had, and they are quite a few. It's just silly to praise me on one hand and then attack my vanity.


and I think it's silly to be smug about page hits when we know how you like to get them.

886 PAGE VIEWS I DIDN'T HAVE BEFORE, MAFAKA!

also praising you/attacking you vanity is more related to frustration that you CAN create a comic that is haunting but you CHOOSE to create awful, boring dross.

You got it once, so why can't you get it again?

but out loud it's more like, "the wesults would be... PITIABLE!!"

and then the doors to the shark pit beneath me start to open, and then there's sort of a rusty wheeze and they jam, and you start jumping from foot to foot and sobbing about how nothing ever works right.

but maybe that's making you sound more interesting than you actually are.

886 Page Views is the new 2% bodyfat.

It's also a really nice address, within walking distance of the park and metro, and the schools round here have excellent scores. Crime is minimal, and there's an excellent independent Chai Latte place nearby.

Dang it...say what you will, but his methods worked. It's very much like a train wreck and I can't look away. The Clarissa comic is well drawn for a cartoony style (kind of reminds me of MAD magazine a bit) but the subject material is honestly horrifying. I get the feeling that if I keep on reading I will honestly regret it.

Well, I actually just stumbled upon the ending photo. Man, that's just freaking horrible. What's wrong with you, man?

It's sad that a guy who writes shitty comics for a living doesn't have a better handle on criticism. He should watch more stand-up comedy, those guys know how to handle people.

He doesn't have a lair. Like Vizzini, he has two friends in the whole world who eventually leave him for someone cooler and more talented.

I wonder: would Tat even notice a difference of 886 page views, let alone be able to attribute it to one source? A little research (which is probably wildly inaccurate) suggests he gets tens of thousands of hits per month (one site said upward of 57,000). How low does your traffic need to be before you can actually say, "Look, I posted on a forum, and my numbers went up!" ...Jason?

My god, are we really stooping to interacting with this guy again? Can't we just stick to wild speculation about why he keeps coming back?

And the easy one! He likes being insulted! It gets his rocks off.

He has the weirdest parental controls ever set on him so he only has about 100 sites he can visit. So he comes back every couple years.

He believes in trickle down economics. No, I don't know how this relates to sinfest.
