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

    Sure, but he has no authority. I'm humouring him to the extent that my patience will allow.


Well he has the authority of a moderator on this forum. So if he wanted to cancel your voice, he could.

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

    Well, that's the problem with capitalist media.


...as opposed to the communist media...are there any problems with that media?


    Quote:
    Those with the means control the narrative. Guess which ideology pushes for that control? Hint: It ain't mine.


Who banned whom from twitter again? Actually don't answer that - matter for another forum.

      Quote:
      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:
    You seemed to be referring to cancel culture (correct?). I was saying that in the arena of entertainment, people vote with their wallets. Thus, the accountability is people not buying their wares, which is perfectly fair.


Exactly which is why Marvel's sales are down (despite using every dirty trick in the book to make it appear otherwise) and a large number of their best writers have jumped ship.


    Quote:
    In the arena of voicing anonymous opinions about comics or whatever, there is no accountability because there is no mechanism to silence opinions other than by confronting and debunking them.


That just promotes free speech.

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

      Quote:

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



    Quote:
    That's not an objective standard.


It is if you have a basic understanding of writing and logic.

If Thor and Odin have been portrayed as behaving in a certain manner for 50 years and then all of a sudden they behave in the complete opposite manner...and we can point that out...is that subjective or objective.

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



    Quote:
    Partisanship in a corporation is an illusion. Marvel is in it to make money. They are a corporate machine, not an advocacy group.


Marvel comics are NOT in it to make money. They haven't been for several years. Go woke...etc.






You address Omnipotence...tread carefully.
