Can't honestly say this board is like a pub. What, are we all drunks? My right to free speech ends where your nose begins. And vice versa. If free speech is subject to any idiot causing violence because he doesn't like it, it's not really free speech, is it?

The worst thing is the the more Kirby fanatics try to make Stan look bad, the worst they make Kirby look. Jack deserves a much better calibre of fans.

And, disagree with Krigstein about the quality of many of those Marvel comics. Which great artistic talent like Steve Ditko, Jack Kirby, Wally Wood, and others were responsible for, largely uncredited by Stan Lee.

Well, Lee's most recent output has certainly been great too, hasn't it?  Stripperella and the Super Heroes show are great contributions to the culture, aren't they?

No, what's old is Lee's line of BS. Krigstein worked in the Marvel Bullpen and knew exactly what he was talking about.

Simply put, there shouldn't be any sacred cows with respect to what is discussed on this board. If posting something critical of a sacred cow is arrogant, then this board is useless as a forum in discussing anything but banalities.
