Something Positive: Cthulu on Furries

Your rating: None Average: 5 (2 votes)

Recent "Something Positive" comic by R. K. Milholland comments on the ubiquitous nature of furry flamewars on the net. Very amusing, provided you're not thin-skinned (thin-furred?).This is not the first time R. K. has used his webcomic to comment on sensitive furry issues (see here and here). While R. K. is not furry himself, he reportedly has a few furry friends, including Circles creators Iyu and Aethan.

I think it's hilarious. And he's right, too: the best way to stop a flamewar--for you, personally--is not to participate in it. It's like the old question: What if they gave a war and nobody came? The thing is, with wars of words alone, you can refuse to be a part of it. And, ideally, no one would come. People would either speak their minds without resorting to personal attacks, or else keep their collective mouths shut. But though this isn't that perfect of a world, the best thing YOU can do, to keep from getting those hackles raised, is to shrug it off and don't get maddened by it all. That's what I do. Just enjoy the happy fuzzy things in life...

Smile! The world could use another happy person.

Agreed. Unfortunately, the only problem with not participating in flamewars is that nobody notices you're not participating in them.

This is true. But at least then _I_ don't get the stress of flaming and being flamed.

Smile! The world could use another happy person.
