If you're going to borrow the gentleman's artwork, don't you think it would be kind to make the image a link back to the artist's site?

Linking an image back to the source site is one of the rules of "Netiquette," isn't it? I fucking hate those rules. Besides, the URL of the site is visible at the bottom of the picture. :-P

Michael Van Vleet | August 1, 2001
Yeah, but the artist put that there as insurance against people just nicking the comic. Same reason there's a copyright notice. Doesn't excuse the lack of a link. See, first netiquette is ignored, then soon dogs are sleeping with cats and there's anarchy in the streets. It's a slippery slope.

Remember the Lawn Gestapo? Netiquette feels to me like rules of the Web Gestapo. I'll surf the web any way I please, thank you very much. (For the record, I'd be a little annoyed at Mitzman if he didn't mention or link to the source at all, except for the fact that the URL is right there in the image.)

well i'm sorry to offend anyone netiquette fiend. if you really were interested in starting something with me you should post an email or your real name. i'm not afraid to do that. and besides that there is an url, it is properly showing where it came from. i put this up for people's enjoyment yet you seem to be the first to bitch about it, i care not, and i care not for netiquette. as far as i'm concerned netiquette can suck my ass

Just for clarification on that commercial: What happens is there's this guy sitting in his apartment/office/whatever and the entire room is loaded up with historical stuff relating to Aaron Burr (guess he's a Burr buff). Anyway, he's listening to the rad Go »

The <Insert Noun Here>

So what do you TC posters think of the new fall season? The Apprentice is good as always, Survivor isn't too bad, Rescue Me is excellent if you like Denis Leary cyncial humor, but the best so far is The Lost. Go »
