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.
