You mean, like you're doing now? Or perhaps how you responded to the post prior to this one? Look man, my point was that you are certainly free to have a conflicting opinion to my own, but I disagree wholeheartedly with the 'more angst now vs. less angst then' view you seemingly took.
I found your patronizing manner not worth replying to in the manner which I would have normally.
Ah. Well, I'm sorry if clarifying the definition of terms before speaking is patronizing. I certainly didn't mean to offend you in any way.
I said that I don't read X-Men consistently. I do occasionally pick up an issue. I don't read Ultimate X-Men. I read the first collected volume, and found that I didn't like the book.
I hate quoting you so much, because it's a tad insulting, but you know, I thought my opinion was clear and focused on only the Ultimate X-Men title. And I referred specifically to the fact you read the first couple of issues and didn't like it, and you refuised to give any of the rest of the issues a shot.
If you'd bothered to read the other posts from this thread that I've posted, you realize that I have never said anything against the Ultimate universe, and that I have read Ultimate Spider-Man. For the record, I like it and Ultimates as well.
Yes, and if you'd bothered to read the beginning of your own post this time out, you would probably see how ironic it is to chastise someone for being patronizing, then succumbing to it yourself less than three paragraphs later.
I read your posts. And I share the same views about the Ultimates universe. Cool stuff. My entire point has really nothing to do about attacking your opinion of the book, it is trying to clarify that it is certainly NOT more angst-ridden now than it was then.
I didn't respond to all of your previous points because I didn't feel the need. I'm not going to respond to all of your current points for the same reason.
Well, I'd have preferred some evidence to the contrary about what I was on about, but I guess your refusal to continue this means you concede that my points are correct.
This is a joke.
I don't feel like getting into a nitpicking duel. You have your opinion, I have mine. You aren't going to change mine, and I don't feel the need to try and change yours. So back off. This is on the edge of becoming personal, and I won't go there. If you want to preach about the level of angst in X-Men for the last forty years (approx.) find someone else.
I agree wholeheartedly, and I would like to point out that while I did defend the Ultimate X-Men title, I didn't want to personally offend you in terms of your opinion of the book. It's not like I have stock in the company. It's just that I read SOOOO much criticism of the book, and it all revolves around the same 'It's so angst-ridden' type of complaint, that it gets on my nerves. It does touch a nerve with me, I'll be honest. So respond or don't, I was hoping that we'd at least exchange points of view, and again, I apologize for being patronizing if it came off that way.
Uh...Set phasers to...er...apologize or something.
