    This is going to get into politics so we should probably just not discuss it.

    Cman previously insinuated that there is only a few that are responsible for the no politics rule. So depending on who it is it might be allowed. I wouldn't be so quick to think it will be shut down. Depends on the poster. The more OG the better.

    Dilbert?

    I dont think I've even looked at the comics section (or "Funny section" for the ole timers) since Bill Watterson sent Calvin & Hobbes out to pasture.... a sad day indeed

    Yeah, I didn't realize Dilbert was still in papers. Mainly because I haven't picked up a newspaper in like 15 years.

    I never really fell in love with Dilbert the way a lot of people did. I only ever cared about Far Side and C&H.

    The subject is certainly politics adjacent... let's just focus on the social aspect.

    Scott Adams says he's basing his opinion on a poll... I think he's being disingenuous.

    And I'm sure the Black community as a whole is upset that the guy who writes Dilbert has given up on them.

    This whole thing is based on a partisan push poll. Really we cannot discuss it without politics breaking out all around the discussion so my suggestion is just to not discuss it,

    I am saddened to learn that Dilbert is racist.

    Now, if you want to talk about shitty comic strips, look no further than the shit-eating Family Circus.

    I'm wondering what could have happened in Scott Adams' life that could inspire such public dipshittery.

    Here here..

    I never read the strip which is apparently just as well....no need to read the inane rantings of yet another angry-as-hell, dumb-as-rocks racist.

    What a lovely way to go. You get a eureka moment and when it's gone so are you.

    I make it a point to read the funnies everyday and it’s really something just how not funny most strips are. Ziggy? Garfield? Cathy? Curtis? Just uniformly awful.
