I can understand if they wanted it 'Member's only', so to speak, but to say 'you were _wrong_ to even think of this' is just ridiculous and possibly even bigotted.

I'll go out on a limb and say no, editting isn't bad.

It's not a question of activity so much as scope. Deletion of threads (especially multi-page ones) removes a lot more information than you ever could edit from one post.

And considering that the first reaction was to politically question the moderator's actions, despite Ralph's own show of class and tact in accepting it... really, damned if you do, damned if you don't.

I'd also just like to clarify that any issue I had with the thread locking was based mostly on the rather ugly comments left by Junior right before he locked them, instead of just saying "I don't care for this to be discussed further". Which seemed to me, as much as anything, to be trumpeting his ow...

Yeah, I know, if he's deleted threads then they can't be used as proof. I just figure, if people are gonna say "Mr Mod-person, I don't think you know the whole story", they should be willing to at least point in the right direction. I know it'll make more work for the mods, but much less than it wou...

Wow, people really love this whole anti-Christian propaganda conspiracy idea. Even when he acts abrasive, as already admitted here, it gets turned around to "Is it because he is CHRISTIAN?!?!?!" Look, Ralph didn't have to be a jerk when locking or deleting threads. And he didn't HAVE to make a fuss ...

I have to say...I liked it a lot better before. I don't know if I can get used to this. I don't think we've seen enough to know whether we'll like the new comic better or less than the old comic. The changes do seem to make it into a different comic. I hate to see the old one end, but the new, simi...

I'm not seeing anything substantial to indicate Ben is doing this out of some "religious necessity". To the contrary, I think Mr. Rubber Ottah explained things nicely. This is about strip complexity, not religion. I didn't see it either, but we have people here who talk about RHJunior's motivations...

Not sure. People change their minds over time, go through different stages of life. Maybe he thought it was ok then, but has grown concerned with it over time. Ann Rice changed her perspective from when she wrote vampire novels to novels about Christ, Tony Stewart switched from Indycar to Nascar fu...

Simple rejection? No, not bigotted. If he'd simply never used 'tulpa' it wouldn't matter in the slightest, there'd be no point in bringing any of it up. I'm just hung up on the point where all of a sudden this Eastern concept he chose to use is apparently suddenly no longer acceptable... it was East...

I did want to ask why it wasn't easier to just say 'Uh, yeah, tulpa is one name for the phenomenom, but the Posse are something more/else/different than that.' Is it so hard to gloss over it and say that tulpas are just the Eastern documenting of a more widespread occurrence, one which is not necess...

Lastly, it's not living your religion that makes you bigotted. Bigotry only comes through persecution and rejection of other life, cultures and beliefs. So long as you're not doing that, you're fine. So how does this square with your assertion that overhauling the comic verges on intolerance and bi...

Hey, I'll label anyone as intolerant and bigoted if I feel that is the case. ANYONE. And when you actively reject something, as is claimed to be the case here, because it does not fit within your own comfort zone of beliefs, so that it seems like you're even denying the possibility that, as quoted, ...

The Ookami Lobo arc was pretty outlandish, but it would be explanable that those were "real" tulpa's instead of the "In name only" ones that the posse were (see my previous post for information) Meh, that kinda lessens the impact though. I mean, Ben is no longer a 'tulpa master', so there's no pers...

Afraid I agree with Namrepus. It's a little insulting, not to mention verging on intolerant and bigoted, to completely overhaul the comic because somehow it suddently doesn't jibe with your religious beliefs. Especially since RHJunior is the sole creative force behind the comic. He may discuss thing...

Hey guys, why not give him the time to walk yall through all the changes he's planned before passing judgement? Like I've said, I wasn't entirely fond of the idea at first either, but now that I know more of what's planned, I think it'll be a change for the better. Just give RH the time to show you...

Well, I think it kinda confuses the less-priveleged to state as fact things that aren't public or referential to an established source. But that aside... I'm throwing my vote in for 'skeptical' about this change. Fact is, most of the earlier arcs, and some of the non-connected strips, depended heavi...
