He locked mine rather abruptly. Under the auspices of everyone
was being rude to each other.
The only person anyone else saw being rude was RH, storming in and nixing an uncomfortable thread.
I'm not sure if removing his Moderator status is the best
option, since...well...they are
his comics and that's what these forums are about. But in the end, he started "trolling" first.
The opening volley was HO, subverting all three comics with his own personal views. Myself and several others suggested that perhaps he should place them in their own
strip, or perhaps in his journal, but those were met with either total disdain or open hostility in a few cases. One person even told me that if I didn't like the way things were going, I should "help" him by buying more of his work. And they didn't say it very nice, either.
On the surface, Ralph doesn't seem too angry about this. Privately, he's probably furious, cause' I sure as heck know that I
would be, but I'm not Ralph. But as he says, he should have passed the reins over to someone else a long time ago.
Now Ralph can concentrate on what he needs to be doing, rather than trying to keep the peace in a warzone where, more often than not, he fired the first shot.
