They don't want people reporting on certain things, or offering a view that's not beneficial, they view geek websites as if we worked for them in marketing. It's pretty sad that any comic book "journalist" that's been in those environments would have any problem believing what went on between us and DC.
Honestly, the black listing told me you guys were doing a good job. It's been painfully obvious that many comic news sites have not been giving honest reviews of titles, whether because they were paid off or because they were afraid of "reprisals", but it has caused me to drastically reduce where I go to get my news. News sites should not be afraid to tell the truth. If a book is bad, or a company is making bad decisions, that is EXACTLY the kind of thing a news source needs to be covering as well as good new and good books.
