What a shame

Speaking of comics moonbats, Avi reports that writers Kurt Busiek and Gail Simone are a bit befuddled at being Twitter blocked by artist Greg Capullo:

Good to see them getting some of their own medicine, especially from a peer in the biz.

Busiek blocked me some time back, and I had never tweeted anything to/about him up to that point. (He probably saw some of the back-and-forths between Ron Marz, Dan Slott, Mark Waid, et. al. and decided to be ... "proactive.")

Simone, on the other hand, blocked Doug Ernst and I after we pressed her on the question of whether only white people can be racist. She was, at the time, busily retweeting messages from a radical feminist whose position was just that. (Simone never answered the question, natch.)

I particularly like how pathetic they are about it. You get the feeling they've never been blocked before and are hoping someone tells Greg for them that they think he's awesome.

Honestly, I think tweeters overuse the block function. It should be used for people who are being way out of line and obsessive or people you know in your everyday lives and can't stand, not people you simply disagree with. Then again, given how intellectually deficient Kurt and Gail are, I can't blame someone for not wanting to hear their claptrap.

Indeed. I've only ever blocked spammers and those who just keep flooding my timeline with stuff even after the debate/argument is long over.

Once again they show their hypocrisy. Notice they block anyone to get into their safe space, but they can't handle it when someone gives them the same treatment.
