At least the GEnie folks knew what comic book was... I spent some time on a 
Disney conference on the RIME network; I sent out messages there over a two
year period and only found two people who would admit to ever reading a 
comic!  One was a fan of the (now defunct) Disney Tailspin comics.  The other
was simply trying to sell me some old comics lying around the house...

Once I posted something about Carl Barks and was told that I was off-topic 
and should take my comments to the "Politics" conference!  (And I did say 
Barks and NOT Marx!)  I think if I said "Don Rosa" they would think I was 
talking about a character in a Zorro movie... :)

This mail list, on the other hand, is a dream come true.  But sometimes I 
get so ovewhelmed by all the information presented here I feel I am trying 
to take a drink from a fire hose.
