The biggest problem I have with this is that DC chose to run this contest WHEN WORLDWIDE SUICIDE PREVENTION DAY IS SEPTEMBER 10. All of next week is Suicide Prevention Week. Good looking out, DC.

Also, Palmiotti's response WAS on facebook and he DID take it down. Several people, myself included, were pointing out exactly how it was a horrible idea and then how the Looney Toons argument didn't hold water. (Case in point: Elmer shooting Daffy isn't the same as Daffy getting depressed and turning the shotgun on himself. It's like saying a sex scene and a rape scene are the same thing.)

DC's going to do what they're going to do. They're going to think what they're going to think. The only way to combat bad speech is with good speech, so I'm putting up $50 in a different contest. http://contestedharley.tumblr.com

Shaun Rodriguez This sure is a lot of words for, "People should do whatever they want free of criticism or analysis, including me."

The only reason your words are ever seen or heard is because your hot opinions take up half the thread.

Some people are fine with being the scum of the earth as long as they can reassure themselves they're not 'liberal politically correct thought policing hippies'.

Something stronger then that I'm afraid... greed.

Ashe P. Samuels Lies. Those people aren't self-aware enough to realize they're the scum of the earth.

Shaun Rodriguez How dumb do you have to be to repeat yourself three times before you start to feel like you're repeating yourself?

Who gets to decide that its world ANYTHING day? There's no official international body with oversight over suicide, I don't choose to recognised some other person's tokenism so its not world anything day for me, I do not recognise the self-appointed moral authority involved here.

No, its not suicide. Its a cartoon, and the character doesn't die.

Mark Chiddicks Up until context came out, no one knew that. Do you expect people to know that this was a joke by Harley about what the writers were doing? And your entire point stinks of gross insensitivity to the feelings of others
