a. because posters like me and the adminstrators of the site beg them to come back
b. yet you notice that you never take the whole review into account. This is one time where I just turned the page and to be honest it didn't really bug me until I read Old Man and HOJ's reviews and then I remembered that shit and realized that it definitely had an adverse effect on my view of the book. Also, outside influences are a reality as to one's OPINION about something. You have stated that you think some of us argue things that are unimportant to you. COOL WE FUCKING GET IT PUNCHY. YOU ARE THE WISEST BESTEST REVIEWER HERE SORRY WE OFFENDED YOU. Get the fuck over it already... two pages of you bickering back and forth cause I said hey yeah I agree with you Old Man. You don't see the pointlessness in that. You know you aren't gonna sway us and we know you aren't gonna be swayed so why continue on about it in your smug way? There are three of us who thought it was important, why are OUR opinions less valid than YOURS?
a. You begged them? Fuck them, if they quit, let them, if I bother them that much, they don't deserve to be here, I'm pretty harmless.
b. I just like discussing comics (or arguing) and it's bickering like this which keeps the thread interesting, we get more reviews for books that are controversial and cause heated threads. And plus, I really don't think it's relevant, and it's perpetuating a Simpsons Comic Book Guy stereotype of pedantic smart-assery that isn't becoming. I expect better from my fellow posters than such nitpicking. I never said anyone's opinion is lesser than mine, just I'd rather get their opinion on something actually relevant. And Smug? Me? Fuck off! I'm not the one getting on my high horse about a fucking recap page! (Well, technically I'm on my high horse about other people getting on theirs, but who got on a high horse first? Not me!)
I don't even know why I'm arguing about this with you, it's not you I'm annoyed with.
