[Comic for Tuesday, July 26, 2005]


Mercedes: Then is it true you banned the plaintiff from your forums to prevent him from defending himself?
Fred: I banned him because he was being abusive and disruptive to the other posters.

Mercedes: Are you CERTAIN your argument with the plaintiff had no bearing on this ban? It's timing hardly seems objective. you mean to say that anger played ABSOLUTELY no part in that decision?

Fred: Can I honestly say that? No. But I made a decision I thought was in the best interests of my readers. If I was also angry... Well, it's never a good idea to tick off the guy with admin privileges.

Mercedes: Then let me phrase it another way. Do you think you have a problem with anger?
Fred: Why do I get the feeling that if I say no, I'll get hit with a giant mallet?
