At first i was against the new artistic direction. Everytime i opened a news article i thought to myself "what an idiot", but truth be told I read lots more news articles now than I used to.
And I enjoy them.

Perhaps I was the idiot and Jude was right.

That didn't work out too well for Syd Barrett, so it's probably not a good idea.

Which pretty much defeats the initiative.

Like I said, Jude should spend some time checking out Deadspin for ideas how to present the snark without getting too heavy handed about it.

I think we need a series of Snark Article Civil War banners.

Use that picture for the "I'm with Jude Terror" banners.

There is obviously no middle ground to be had between dry, copy and pasted articles and ones that are practically parody.

I don't care for the snark in this post. Please change the tone of your posts because I don't like it. I would prefer if you made posts that were more informative with less sarcasm. Since you perform this service for free, it is your duty to do it to my specifications.

Seems like I must be the douchebag because I actually like to read comic news here and lately can't get any of it here.

How dare you be critical of my posts. I will now try to belittle you and make you feel like your were wrong to not enjoy my every post.
