    Not sure what that means, but I hope it's purely comic related. Your previous comment ('Dissenting voices will not be tolerated') seems to refer to cancel culture, which in its current incarnation is not a real thing.


LGDB is OPENLY saying we cannot criticize ANYONE (such as Donny Cates) unless we also have the same profession.

You know its crazy. I know its crazy. Yet that's where we are at.

    Cancel culture, aside from originally being a tool to punish the left (not the right),


Things are so divided I suspect whomever controls the media controls the narrative.

    is currently manifested as people voicing their opinions and voting with their wallets, which is supposed to be how things work in what passes for a 'free market'.


You are voicing your opinion on Cates - LGDB is saying you don't have the RIGHT or AUTHORITY to do that...plus you might hurt Donny's fee-fees.


    Quote:
    That people are held accountable for their dissenting or contrarian voices is something I have no problem with.


If I am of the opinion some of Cates plots are illogical and give examples - how exactly should I be held 'accountable'? Sounds a bit sinister.


    Quote:
    However, in the case of comic / entertainment criticism, there is no objective standard so its really an exercise in futility.


The objective standard is what we have read in the past. We are comparing apples to apples.

Until things get better at Marvel (which will be never given the openly partisan personnel) make mine MANGA!




You address Omnipotence...tread carefully.
