Comments-wise things are dead at the moment, but it's been an unusually busy 48 hours. I'm sure our volume of comments is low compared to many blogs, but it’s still more than we have time to monitor.
As we stated in our opening entry about three weeks ago, this blog's primary purpose is to show more of our work and publicize our self-published book. The comments section was a secondary feature. While dissenting opinions and criticism are welcome (we don’t expect everyone to agree with us), argumentative trolls are another matter. We're not here to provide them a soap box at our expense. They’re free to start their own blogs or frequent other forums. But if we’re to continue creating more cartoons and holding our regular jobs, our comments section has to close. We don’t have the extra time to police a 24-hour open debate forum.
We’re grateful for the compliments we have received, both publicly and privately. We’re even glad critics have chimed in. But we’re especially thankful to those posters who have taken the time and effort to the defend the American ideals we try to get across in our cartoons.
We hope you’ll stay tuned for more of our work. And we can still be reached by e-mail.Posted by Forkum at March 24, 2003 11:58 PM
