"Whedonesque - twinned with North Korea."

Oh fantastic! :D

Remember when we were told not to keep criticism to LJ and to post on boards? Someone said that. I forget who.

Nobody takes criticism seriously if it isn't on Whedonesque.

Criticism is banned from Whedonesque.

Therefore, there is no criticism.

Except the small groups of slut-shamers and bigots, of course.

I don't know which is funnier, this or essays criticizing Joss's work being rejected for being too critical.

He's a god, don't you understand?

Personally I started giggling over some comment that it's 'good' that Buffy got so drunk that she blacked out and 'somehow' wound up pregnant because it shows that she's not perfect.

Yeah, I think we got the 'not perfect' part at the bank robbing (and that was 100% free of consent issues)

As a fan of the character, I don't think the show ever claimed she was perfect to begin with.

The comics on the other hand don't portray her as anything other than a complete incompetent who can't think, fight, plan or do much else than take up space. All she does is get beat up and get saved. There was a time when could save herself and sometimes other people along with her.

Dare I ask what happened?

If you dislike the comics you are forbidden to post on comics threads on pain of instant banishment, disembowellment and possible dusting.

Not very clever. Wonder who thought that would be a good move?

The board owner announced:

New rule:

If you do not like the comics, you are no longer allowed to post in comics threads. Post again and you're banned from this site forever. All this at the mods' discretion.

There will be no discussion of this rule here on the board, in this thread or any other thread.

VERY short-sighted.

Wow. Usually people are slightly less *obvious* when they do things like that. I think that no matter how much I loved the comics (and I haven't read them and don't feel at all like I'm missing anything), I would immediately stop visiting that site.

Quoted for truth.

Wow.

I rarely read Whedonesque, and I've never commented on the comics there -- largely because I don't, for the most part, like them -- but, wow.

Is there a rule against slagging off moderators for imposing draconian rules that cannot be named?

The funny thing is, I have an account there that I've never used... And now I can't! (Because I couldn't care less about the latest ventures of random Firefly actors.)

My thoughts exactly...and I don't even read the comics!
