Well, I'm not technically banned myself, and I'm under the impression Scott can probably go back after a few days or something, but I don't know what to make of it really. Regardless, for me, I'd hate to see a friendship, or whatever you might call an internet friendship, with someone I admire and whose comics I was reading since I was 10 years old go down the tubes over something so dumb. Messing around on newsarama just isn't worth that, to me. I imagine Scott feels the same way. So no more Liefeld threads for me - it's the end of an era, and I imagine Rob will come around eventually, as he must know deep down I'm a fan or he would have just banned me.
I guess that newsarama thread really got to him, which surprised me, because I thought it was much more light-hearted than the usual venom that gets spewed over there, but that just goes to show, I guess, why I shouldn't presume to know what someone would take offensively and what he wouldn't, which is why I will simply avoid those threads entirely.
The bottom line, I like posting on Rob's boards so I'm going to be more careful not to offend him. In addition, I'm serious about promoting Blud Blood and these anthologies on the internet, so I'm going to try to avoid fighting with people online entirely - then I make something positive out of something that started out negative. A difficult resolution to carry out on the internet, where arguing is second nature for most of us, but that is what I am going to try to do.
