|After reading several negative posts regarding CTRL-ALT-DEL I would like to point out at least a few glaring problems I have with these \'flamers\' POV\'s.
First, CAD is released with 4 episodes each week....that doesn\'t leave time to do a ton of in-depth backgrounds and lighting and facial expressions etc.
The sites that bash CAD (worst webcomics wiki, AE etc) state their opinions in language that rivals (if it is actually his own language) that of Tim himself when flaming others, calling him \'Tim F^uckly\' (hurhurhur, you idiots). These sites also use personal information, true or untrue, I have no idea because the information is so convoluted and most of the people posting about the pedophilia aspect sound like three-year-olds. Regardless, if we all payed attention to personal lives, no one would purchase Michael Jackson\'s music, watch a movie with Christian Bale in it, or give a flying leap about hundreds of other mainstream persons (David Letterman, David Boreanaz, Tiger Woods etc.).
To speak briefly about the miscarriage episodes. While so many want to just look at the comic and say \'WTF man!! This doesn\'t belong, you have defiled comic-dom.\' I would point out that, if the stories are true that he dealt with his girlfriends miscarriage horribly, maybe he was trying to make amends through Ethan for a horrible thing that he did in the past. Sometimes the medium we work most with is the only way we can convey feelings. The episodes aren\'t meant to be funny, but sometimes, as good authors know, things just have to be written down before they eat us alive inside.
I\'m not saying the comic is always funny, sometimes I run into comics that aren\'t but the majority of them I enjoy very much. I think of comic writers the same way I do comedians, you take your act to the stage and test it on the audience. If they boo you off the stage, it\'s time to rework the material, refine your delivery or whatnot and get back out there and try again. CAD seems to have a fairly large following so either Tim is doing something right, or there are just that many more idiots out there that are easily amused. Personally, I\'m of the opinion that those who criticize the comic constantly and literally have NOTHING good to say about it are trying their damnedest to not say anything good because they are either incompetent parrots repeating what others have already written, or they\'re so hardcore in their criticism of comics that only true graphic novels and comic books earn their respect.
Finally, a note regarding people who call Tim an egotistical e-peen freak banhammering everyone who critiques him on his website: NO SH!T? I own a website....people want to be rude to me and post stories about pedophilia and hate on my comics, so why not allow them to post on my forums and cause disruption and mayhem? When you own a website, you have the right to refuse service to anyone. My family owns a small business and I can guarantee you if someone comes in and badmouths our business, we don\'t allow them back. They can stand on the street corner (e.g. create their own website to bash us) if they like, but they aren\'t allowed back on our property and they sure as hell aren\'t allowed back inside the business itself. You are more idiotic than I could imagine if you think anyone would open up their own website and allow bashing of themselves and their work to go on there. It\'s a horrible business practice unless you have a website that is specifically built for debates (political, religious etc.) in which case that is the purpose of the site you set up. This is not what CAD forums were created for, so just shut up already.
