I strongly believe it reflects Tat's desire to swing the B&-Hammer

Then That should read the constitution first.
You don't change the world by silencing dissenters - that olny creates division and sweep under the rug the resentment that builds slowly against you.

Someone's confusing "free speech" with "freedom from consequences", I see. Smile

Yeah... free speech means you can say whatever you want. It doesn't mean we have to listen to you, or give you a (literal) forum in which to speak.

EDIT: and free speech only applies to the government - privately-run internet forums can ban any kind of speech they want.

Because we totally need to unite with people who believe in corrective rape.

Sure you can say whatever you want but don't act horrified when what you get back isn't kittens and sunshine.

Depends on what "D" means. There's the one everyone Assumes it means, but there are others...

Defrag? Yeah, there's a lot of IT girls [and boys] saying Defrag tools are a waste of time.
Dollars? IT girls and boys should get equal D's. If IT-girl is underpaid, Some "D" may indeed make her happier.
Desk space? Not having your own cubicle can make you feel your IT job is temporary, leading to insecurity.
Democracy? Has IT-girl been made to feel that her vote doesn't count?

Dell? Yuck. Dell suck.

[Edit] Diversity? I just watched a Penn & Teller "Bullshit" story about universities, and exposing undergraduates to Diversity. They made it sound like racial profiling [they showed a lecturer explaining how blacks are late to class - because they are black] I'd be interested in how the "Diversity" line would work out in the Sinfest world.

I think you're all taking the meaning of the comic too literally.

My opinion is that Tat is getting upset at all the negativity and vitriol being spewed back and forth on these forums. Not just here in this forum when controversial comics are posted but in all areas. And is planning on doing some clean up if it doesn't change, if he hasn't already started.

I see it as a warning to people to cool down and have civil conversations and stop attacking or insulting the people, irregardless of their opinions.

I lurk these forums from time to time and it's just mind boggling how poisonous the atmosphere here can get the moment ANYTHING controversial appears in one of Tat's strips or in a thread elsewhere. While not everyone is malicious both sides of the argument have people that would much rather attack the person than the argument.

My opinion is that Tat simply wanted to show Minique again.

But I wish he'd show Minique doing something else. I'm beginning to associate her with banning people. That, and wearing divisive glasses.

A lot of times I feel like Tat puts the characters in positions that would get most people to comment. Sure, he could've put Minique in the park with those funky shades and had her interact with the ice cream man. But perhaps the thread wouldn't even make 4 pages (unless someone drops by saying FEMINISM EVIL RARA).

It occured to me after reading this strip:

While I suspect we are supposed to assume the 'D' is, well, *that* (because there are people in this world WHO REALLY SAY AND BELIEVE THINGS LIKE THAT)...

In the context of the Sinfest World, it is entirely possible the poster also *meant* The 'D'evil. A bit of the old bomf bomf aaannnnddd now that is a euphamism in my head damnit that is not what I meant brain.
