I'm thinking that clawing my way out of zero buffer hell is f-ing awesome and well worth the sweat.

MissElaney:He's a New York business democrat who pushes tax cuts in order to benefit his industry.

Smh and sincerely wishing it were that simple.

edit: [spoiler]Gotta laugh at that "democrat" label... the man is clearly out for himself, political parties be damned. And sorry, gonna call this now, 16 June 2018, because it's painfully predictable: that when this thing runs its course and we're all climbing out of the smoking ashes, the remaining Repubs will be all like "the Dems are to blame for him." Party of individual responsibility lol.[/spoiler]

I don't understand the obsession with him on this forum.

Old Boy's impetuousness and total lack of coherent policy outside of serving himself is directly affecting my ability to do my job, and only tangentially via his disruption of the post-WWII alliance of democracies.

Back to the point, I don't put a whole hell of a lot of stock in tests like this. People can hold a lot of contradiction within themselves.

Maaan, after previously posting some really bitter “this is why I do this” ranting, I’ve deleted that and settled on a copy-paste of my comic profile. Is there an expectation for more than that?

PW did NSFW ads, or linked to NSFW works?

Per my understanding, that doesn’t sound consistent with their policies.

Staying on target: When I see someone on the front page (or elsewhere) who's breached certain arbitrary metrics (e.g. hundredth page) I like to drop them a congratulatory comment... I'd encourage others to do the same. Feels like cheering on a marathon runner.

Got a family including a young child, got a 50+ hour a week salaried job, really looking forward to retirement as a time when I can finally update at a pace that will do justice to my audience.

-Have a signature that has a link to your comic for this forum.

-Send Centcomm a PM with fan art for Datachasers. It's the biggest comic here and they do post stuff like that in their normal update flow. (edit: fan art for other works is also a good calling card, but results may vary)

-Remember to do the VDSD... most won't.

Sorry to rain on this invisible parade, but ratings are not working.

To be specific, giving a rating didn't change the displayed number on the page.

When I see a new webcomic, I always assume that it's a flash in the pan. Even more so when I can tell that the author is young, and much more so when the art is exceptional. Ninety nine percent of them won't go the distance, not over the years. Webcomics are hard work, with labor measured in the thousands of hours. Most people aren't capable of that level of sustained exertion, not without significant external pressure.

So for those of you still living the dream, you are truly rare and awesome.

Throwing office furniture followed by a bum rush is the recommended close-range tactic.

ChristianRepass:I was among the first to complain about it on this site, but now, I feel completely hopeless about the whole situation. This may sound dramatic, but the United States is no longer a democracy, but an autocracy for the rich and powerful.


So, you gonna sit on your hands?

Listen, I get it that hopelessness is super easy and cynicism is super cool and "I gotta go to work tomorrow" and all that. But I mean, who gets out of bed for easy? I mean man, you publish a webcomic, so I'd assume you know a little bit about persistence. Or as the super suave and attractive and well-read cynics out there may put it, tilting against windmills.

Vote, prod your friends and family to vote, push donations however modest to worthwhile candidates, volunteer for worthwhile candidates, go to protests, organize a protest, write your representative, call your representative, run for representative (no seriously: school districts, sewer districts, ward committees, there's a bajillion at the junior junior varsity league level)... and these are all the nice, vanilla options that we have at our disposal in America in 2018--think about what it's going to take to drag Russia into the 20th century! Hopelessness is part and parcel of the autocracy's toolkit--so are you content to be their tool?

If you think small, persistent actions won't change the world, then they won't. But that arc of history over your avatar's head doesn't bend towards justice on its own.

Ambrose_Folly:You shouldn't vote for politicians on only 1 issue.


Excellent advice that could be followed by people of all political persuasions.

And while I would continue to push my previous assertion about Net Neutrality and a certain political party, I'd also encourage voting with respect to the looming issues that we'll feel for the rest of our lifetimes, which are--in my opinion--1) inaction on human-driven climate change and 2) open corruption (of which Net Neutrality is a subset).

MK_Wizard:This is a scary thought, but how is this going to affect a lot of other webcomics and webcomic hosting sites? Project Wonderful was popular everywhere so... what's everyone going to turn to now?


Initial indications are that the "independents" are going to badly suffer.

MissElaney:Do you want to just punish a collective or do you want to actually do something that might have an impact?

Yes, you will likely be voting out people who are against net neutrality because this has become a partisan issue, but you're still basically treating your ballot like a scratch ticket, and unless you somehow could get Ajit Pai impeached, the show is going to march on. If you just want to go spitefully vote for a letter, you need to be willing to end up with people like Joe Donnelly (a pro-gun democrat senator) and kick out people like Lisa Murkowski (a pro-planned-parenthood republican senator) for no reason other than the letter next to their name regardless of whether they are the actual assholes who are accepting money from companies pushing to end net neutrality (like Mo Brooks, Cathy McMorris-Rodgers, George Holding, Morgan Griffith...).

It'd be a dick move of me to just shoot you down without pointing out an alternative idea, so, here you go.

On top of paying attention to the specific senators who are funded by companies that lobby against net neutrality and voting against these individals, follow up with your wallet. Turn to your ISP and look for local companies that support net neutrality so you can tell Comcast to go fuck itself because you and Wave Broadband or whatever are buddies now and send a letter to the chairman about it.

Do the same thing with your cellphone. It is indeed more difficult to tell phone providers to go fuck themselves because practically all of them are salivating over this shit (Verizon and AT&T each dumped something to the tune of $15 million apiece on lobbying against net neutrality), but considering that Google dropped like $18,000,000 in support of net neutrality, you can always spring for a Google Nexus, give Google Fi a chance and shoot a letter to the board of your late cell provider.



Hey, thanks for the measured response. You have great suggestions that the modern, informed citizen and consumer should follow:

-Look at your representative's plaforms & voting record; I'm not advising voting for an axe murderer (or a serial adulterer for that matter) just because they're the "correct" party.
-Select ISPs and cell phone providers for those that don't spend your money lobbying for anti-consumer stuff.

I would also agree that "the show is going to march on" unless something changes. There is a bipartisan effort in the Senate (see previous thread on this topic, as well as the news) to take this out of the FCC's hands. The current (and Republican) House of Representatives leadership is not interested in working towards this. Therefore I persist that the most immediate lever towards taking back Net Neutrality is upending control of the House.

And that means throwing out the House Republicans in November.

(You can keep Senator Murkowski, she's ok-ish)

JuicyGrey:Is it people are too afraid anymore to act, because they fears some kind of retribution? Sorry, but you already are getting one for not to acting and it is this...


Here is an action item for Americans: Vote against Republican lawmakers this November.

They did this, they should face the music.
