JK Rowling loves freedom of speech and she will sue anyone who says otherwise.

Did she actually sue or threaten to sue someone?

She's just gearing up for a run at high office now that her writing career is over.

Where did all these fecking spambots come from?  They're dredging up threads from 20 years ago.

Utter Hosreshit!

I don't like Spam! I'm not a big fan of Luncheon Meat either.

Aye, because no-one in these parts would ever do that would they?

So if you're fixing your iPod do you use ordinary Cheddar or would you go for a nice bit of Brie to entice out the lodged headphone jack? ::)

I'm guilty myself, but to be fair to me I don't write in Cryllic when I do it. Uncle Vlad is watching us!

Like a scab I can't stop picking, and I know it's unhealthy for me and I've got to stop, but I keep going to the Megaverse FB page and being annoyed with what's there. It's a sense that 2000 AD fandom is kind of eating itself - like, it won't be happy until it's completely undermined and destroyed the thing that it exists because of. Like an out of control parasite.

They're obsessed with typos in the prog, voraciously truffling for them and then having a feeding frenzy when they find one. As if making a comic is so fucking easy and making the odd mistake a crime against some kind of saintly, perfect reader who never makes mistakes but is only ever the victim of other people's.




There's so much ill will and deep, festering wounds between things like the ECBT podcasts and creators that it's causing well-meaning contributors to lose out to an ongoing fan / creator feud that I only partly understand but where, clearly, peaceful solutions are not being sought. So, a recent article on podcasts was advertised and then pulled from downthetubes.net, due to the inclusion of the ECBT. If, like me, you're more interested in the comic than the fandom-diaspora then you might not know that ECBT stands for Everything Comes Back to 2000AD, who appear to be at war with other fans of and many employees of the thing that "everything comes back to".


If you're female, and you appear on the Megaverse, then you can guarantee (cast iron, 100%) that you'll be sexually objectified, and that it will not be challenged.








I know, I know ... the solution is not to look. It's to find somewhere healthier to be.
