... that you went to the beach is a fact. I could see how it might be surprising if someone disputes a fact.@David_D, EXACTLY! I do not think sharing my experience/providing "testimony" is worthy of ANY comments - agree, disagree, or otherwise. A person asked for experiences with online comic book providers. I provided MY experience. Others provided THEIR experience. I did not agree, disagree, or whatever on any of THEIR posts because I do not feel it is my place to do so. I can only share MY experience. The person who requested that others share their experience, it is up to THAT person to read everyone's post and then make her/his own decision as to which company she/he prefers to use. THAT person gets to judge and have her/his own experience, but that judgment does not include agreeing or disagreeing, etc. THAT person can/should thank the rest of us for sharing our knowledge & experience so she/he has now gotten a variety of experiences from us to make her/his decision. I am glad that you had a positive experience with DCBS, and it is perfectly acceptable for you to share that experience. It is not my place to agree or disagree with that. How can I agree with YOUR experience? How can I disagree with YOUR experience? Our experiences HAPPENED, regardless of what others think of it, and I feel it is rude to place a judgment of any kind on one's experience (vs one's opinion) as it looks like an attempt to co-opt that person's experience. I thought I was being a nice forum member, helping out another forum member by responding to her/his request for help. If I had had no experience with DCBS at all, I would not have posted anything. But, since I HAVE had years of experience with them, AND she/he ASKED for this to be shared with her/him, I did so. I had no idea that people on forums feel compelled to like, dislike, agree, etc with EVERYTHING, including someone's experience. It's like if I shared that I went to the beach this weekend, and people disagreed with that. Really?
My experience with DCBS was not posted as a "discussion", or something that needed critical review, dislike, or disagree . . .
To get your panties in a bunch & "disagree" because your little fanboy ass is hurt for poor DCBS, well all I can say is you need to get yourselves a little self reflection time, and step the fuck off my shit! DCBS SUCKS! I WOULD NEVER USE THEM. Disagree with THAT mo-fo's!
Yes, we do see it differently. I see these at discussions. And I don't see the reactions as attempts to undermine, or hiding. Rather, they are simply more speech added to the discussion.@David_D it is very clear that we see things differently - which is OK. I disagree that, because I have had a factual experience that sucked, this makes it an opinion now rather than a fact. Like the beach analogy, other people may have had their own experience with the beach & feel it is a good beach. Good for them. They are free to share their experience with others. Again, that does not negate my experience or opinion. Rather than having the beach lovers label and/or judge my experience, let them post their own and trust that the objective reader of ALL the posts will judge for themselves if they want to go to the beach or not. I say DCBS sucks. You say it doesn't. Let the person who started this discussion thread decide for themselves without undermining one another's experiences.
To be fair, the spotlights have always been, from the beginning, the guys talking about the issues they've read, or what stood out to them. They were always meant to be a discussion, and not a complete guidebook or a dry info dump. If they left out stories you wanted to hear them discuss, then I get why that would be frustrating. And personally I think there has been a lot of great work in the Brand New Day era. But I don't think them researching stories a lot of them haven't read just to complete the era would be the organic way of going about the discussion.The point that I made was that even the iThis was the point that I was trying to make as well. As thorough as your reviews were of the past ages, it was disappointing to see such a large gap completely ignored. Again as I said in my first post, what was there was great, and I don't think anyone is denying it. I think you might have gotten a few complaints if you skipped a storyline or two, but you all skipped 4 years of spider-man continuity! Somebody pull up a wiki and write some notes! lolThat's understandable matt from a personal stand point, but the show couldn't find anyone who HAD been reading for the last 100 issues? That's a big jump from 2008 to 2012, and again significant stuff happened in the spidey-verse before the start of the Dying Wish story
