thecapncummings asked: On the whole internet troll subject what do you think is the best avenue to combat this whole thing? I'm not a fan of complaining about it maybe just being positive and promoting good behavior? I've been taught being a good example is always best. Thoughts?

brianmichaelbendis:

Just be the best version of yourself, use playground rules, you don’t fight with bullies, you don’t get in the mud,  

as a good friend of mine reminds me every time someone in this business takes a swing at me: you don’t punch a pile of shit because all that will happen is you will get shit on you

 I just wish that the larger higher profile forums would take a much harder stance on what they allow on their message boards. I am all for free speech but hate speech, rape speech, and general negativity on your forums is creating an unfriendly and frankly inaccurate atmosphere.

 as I have said on this tumbler I have met women who have admitted to me that they have to pose as men on some higher profile message boards so they can have a decent conversation about comics without being Internet pawwed.

 I have told the people who own these boards and they have done nothing about it because they’d rather have the traffic even though I think the traffic would be higher if people were allowed to have a conversation without being bullied or harassed.

all I can do is not cooperate with those sites anymore.  and I do not.  for which it has been explained to me I am perceived as a pain in the ass. oh well.

"The message that we send when we don’t represent the broader culture in our stories is that ‘You are other’. As a community, as an organism, it is a thing that makes us ill. It is actually bad for us."

— Kelly Sue DeConnick (kellysue) , speaking about the continuing need to diversify the kind of characters that appear in comics, as part of the ECCC panel—Broadening Comics Readership. (via robot6)
