First thing's first: this comic was late and we must atone. If you have an iPhone and the WikiTap App, then you are essentially carrying The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy in your pocket and you should have an appropriate wallpaper. Enjoy this one that I made for myself; it is now for all of you!

On to the post.

Well, it's finally happened. We're officially big-time, and the way I can safely make such a bold claim is because we have our first confirmed troll!

For the edification of those outside of the know, "troll" is a pejorative term used to describe some fuck-tard who finds a website that allows them to leave anonymous feed-back and then makes unsolicited comments about subject matter far outside of their capacity of understanding.

A few months ago I (in my unknowing and internet-virgin ways) made an animation about intellectual property law and kinetic typography animations that uses language some would call... incendiary.

Of course, taking a hard position about anything on the Internet summons these creatures like a clarion call without parallel. One of them, seeing today's comic, left a comment that suggests that I am a hypocrite because I used the Nissan logo without their permission. I may be a hypocrite, but not because of this. (this work is clearly satire and not derived from any protected material)

I hope that the longer I have work on the Internet that people will see and comment about, the easier ignoring these people will become. I hope.

It's like when you start jogging; the first few months are horrible, and then one day it starts getting easier, bit by little bit. But at first, it feels like your lungs are bleeding out of your eye-sockets.
