EDITED TO ADD: GUYS, THE NEW SITE IS AT GEEKGIRLSRULE.NET I appreciate the feedback, but I don’t get here very often, so your comments don’t get approved that quickly. And there’s a new Dickwolves post there. Yeah, I wasn’t going to get into this, but a lot of the debate around it is really… Read More Geek Girls Rule! #133 – Penny Arcade and the Dickwolves
Yeah, I wasn’t going to get into this, but a lot of the debate around it is really starting to get on my nerves. So, last week the Penny Arcade guys posted this comic.

I’ve been blogging over at the California Chapter of NOW’s blog for a while, which explains some of the slowdown over here. And today I did something for them that is equally germane to this blog, but I’m not going to repost it in its entirety, so go there and read it.

Occasionally, not often, but occasionally, I get trolls here. When I do, on those rare occasions, unless they’ve said something actionable in a court of law, I leave them up.
