.. You guys should really stop commenting your own work after each strip, it just completely destroys immersion and takes the edge off the whole AlP feeling. The notes are so _intensely_ lame, as opposed to the comic itself which is brilliant- the contrast is just soo rough. Couldn't you just put it elsewhere on the site, like, for people who care enough about anecdotes concerning your personal lives and shit to actually go look for it? It's hard to understand how you can create something as hilarious as AlP and then manage to erase all that cred by being such dorks in the blog-text below the comic. Stop it. Really.

There is only one person blogging in there: the comic's creator, Bernie Hou.

I think the word you should be looking for is "oh..."

Dude, who the hell are you to judge Bernie? It's his site, he pays for it so that you can ejoy aLp for FREE! He can do anything with it!

Did you actualy read those comments read? Some of them are storys and events Bernie inspired himself form to make the comic and are useful the grasp whole humor of the stip. You may from the US and even from New York, you may know all of those things, but aLp has an audience from all over the world, how the hell should we know of local events in the US? Why should we miss on the fun just because you don't like some comments?

When you'll make a webcomic as good as Bernie's about a city and make it so that anyone can understand all the punch lines without commenting anything, then you might be in possition to make suggestions, not comments!

Well, it seems like you've managed to get yourself into a little war immediately after signing in. Funny. And I always thought ignorance was bliss...

Anyhow, there is a site where you can enjoy the comic without the comments. Guess it's there especially for people like you.

Here you go:

Hey you know, I know what the dude's saying. It's not gonna change what I do, but he has a valid opinion, the comic doesn't need the blog, and he doesn't like the blog. That's cool. Thing is, if he doesn't wanna read it, he doesn't have to. I'm not gonna go hiding it so people who like it have to work harder to find it.

Thanks though guys.

He could just not scroll down. My screen is set at 1280x1024 and I only see the comments when its a short strip.

I vote we burn him for being an asshole.
He's one of those people who will sit through a program, then write i and complain about how offensive or crap it was; if you dont like it, dont watch it ( or read it in this case ).
Failing that go to hell and die, I love this comic and the blog always adds to it by explaining where Bernie gets his ideas.

At the very least, we should deny him his piece of cake, and instead just share it amongst ourselves.

And the cookies, well, I think we should just eat the cookies right in front of him, and not give him any.

Only give him peanut butter on saltines, with nothing to drink. That will show him.

Quick! Someone strap him into a chair! I'll staple his eyes open, and then we can leave him to watch Battlefield Earth.

If we force him to watch endless reruns of Lordi's "The Kin" until he actually understands it (I know the ten or so people I played it to, TWICE, didn't) that'd be enough punishment. And a source of enlightenment for me and all those who have watched the Kin and like me, don't get it.

Heh... I can think of ENDLESS add-ons to that "However." Here's just the one.
"... However.. I need to read the forums rules that I believe state, 'don't be an ass'."

Call me an ass myself but it's kind of assy (kind of like "classy", but not so classy... just assy) to post something like this.
Dude, don't read the notes if you don't like them.

Allright, that's enough of that.

I think he gets it by now. As Bernie said, each is entitled to his or her opinion. But this specific opinion is not going to change the site.

First, this is directed toward the person(s) who think ALP loses cred because of the commentary at the bottom. Everyone else is cool in my opinion. So, look, first of all, it's kind of cool to know what's going on with the writer(s). It gives you some insight as to who they are, and as I am a writer, (a novelist), I dig that. Secondly, you don't have to scroll down and look at the commentary. If you don't like it, don't pay attention to it. That's all. Simple as that. Bernie, you're doin' a great job, keep it up. Commentary and all.[/b]

Just happened to stumble upon this old post I made a long time ago, in a galaxy far far away. Gotta love the reactions here. Go nerd-brigade! It doesn't change a thing though. AlP is still a brilliant comic, and the blog is still dorky. No harm in that. I didn't mean it like, you know, as a personal assault on this dude. Dorks have done lots of good stuff for the human race. Like inventing the hydrogen bomb! So I guess I'll just do what that guy said about reading it on another site, and be on my merry way. But please, for the love of GOD, don't do anything rash, like banning me! I don't know what I'd do! Where I'd go! Oh, the flames! The burns! I promise I'll buy you all new Xena-suits.

Your first comment was about us posting. There's a flaw there -- only Bernieh posts there. Now I'm not accusing you of rule number whatever-it-is (don't be an ass), because I've done it myself. But really, if you don't want to read it, don't read it. Simple, right? Right.

EDIT: My bad. I didn't read Munan's old post before typing this one. Completely ignore this. Completely. Like, fat guy trying to hit on a hot girl completely ignore. This. ...Completely.

I think that's against the geneva convention.

And humanity itself.

I've always enjoyed the comments after each comic.

Now if it were as boring as most DVD commentaries are, well then...that would be a different story.
