: Why on Earth would you let somebody's personal oppinion emabarass you? If you don't agree with it, that's fine. It's MY oppinion. I'm perfectly content with that, just as you should be with your own oppinion. That's kind of the theory behind them. I'm not wetting my undies over the fact you have something different to say about the same subject. It's not entirely important to me to have a reaction to how someone may or may not feel. You shouldn't let it effect you so.
It isn't your opinion that embarrasses me, it's the context.
If it weren't that the board practically jumps out its skin to viciously attack anyone who they perceive as some sort of threat to Kevin's honor. I find it embarrassing to be a Kevin Smith fan and board member when that's going on.
And regardless of whether you disliked Burton and his work yesterday, last week, last month, last year, or since God was a wee young'un sucking on His Mama's teat, the timing of this post coincides with one another of these silly incidents.
Your opinion of nearly all of Burton's work is, let's face it, off-topic here, so the only reason to bring him up is to "diss" him over his statement in response to Kevin's playful little bit of, well, self-promotion as much as anything. Well, like I said, reacting to that is retarded. No matter how easy it is to judge from here, we really, really don't know what or how Burton was told or asked about this, so can't know if it would be reasonable to recognize the humor.
So, if you have something productive to say, cool… I'm all about opinions, dude. "Oppinions", I'm not sure about, though.
but if you just want to go off on a knee-jerk rant to impress Kevin with your conformity to how you perceive him and how you have his back, then please leave it be. Some of here like to at least imagine that we have some dignity.
