So take note!!
-Bad writing is bad
-Lack of joke is does not want
-wasted effort is wasted
-filler comic is filler no matter how hard it tries to not be
-You are not a philosopher and this comic is not a philosophy piece, so stop trying to make it that.
Oh and regarding the last frame
It's spelled fuck, F U C K, fuck
Allow me to address your points one at a time.
1.) You're right. I've been unreliable in this area for a while.
2.) I'll address this further in a moment. It ties into one of my other answers.
3.) Why is it wasted effort? I admit my main goal with the Captain strip was to get a comic posted, no matter my other desires. I managed to do so, which means at least that goal was fulfilled. However, I agree it was pretty much a longer version of some of the other Captain strips, and that I could have and should have done something else.
4.) I assume this is directed towards wednesday's comic/pondering. Yes, it was filler. I was tired, and I wanted to upload something at the very least. There was no attempt to not make it filler.
5.) Wait a minute. You're declaring what the comic is and what it isn't? And furthermore, you're declaring what I am/am not? Usually I would just say that it was your opinion/interpretation, but something in the tone indicated to me that you thought you controlled what the comic was for people other then yourself. Which is delusional. While I do make the comic for an audience in many ways, it's also a part of me, a warped reflection if you will; and I'm not made entirely of bad/weird jokes and occasionally witty asides. I enjoy thinking, exploring paradoxes and other questions in depth, and sometimes I just feel like sharing these thoughts. I don't see myself as a philosopher and don't claim to be one, except in the broad sense that anyone can ponder the mysteries of the universe. Ultimately, the comic is in my control, and I can do what I want with it.
And as far as swearing goes, my family reads this comic. Last time I let a swear word slip in there, my mom admonished me for it in a comment on my blog.
Think about that for a second.

The fact that you can think on an abstract level doesn't mean you can preach to us in the form of a filler comic. That, I agree with Niko on. However, I see the point of both of your cases, and I'd have to say you both can argue. The point is, you shouldn't. This is casual. Can't we all just get along? I like your new idea to update once a week, though.
