And by the above post, I mean that people who register on the forum should have to demonstrate that they have at least a passing knowledge of this comic.

A example is how, to comment on the nethack comic Dudley's Dungeon you need to ID a nethack symbol.

Upon registering you should have to not only submit proof that your not a bot (the whole "type the letters you see in this image" thing), but have to submit proof that your not a raptor as well.

So it's really mostly syntactical ugly that has crippled it so. Odd, or actually not that much so. Also @Johnw: I was referring to tabs in the codebox. I don't care what your fancy IDE does. ( defun march (steps) ( loop for i from 1 to steps if (evenp i) append (list &quo...

Anyway to fix LISPs messiness?

Making use of tabs and returns (which DuSTman didn't do) would be a nice start, but I feel that there must be some other way.

LISP's popularity (or lack thereof)

I've heard a lot of great things about LISP and those things make me wonder why its not a more popular language than it is. People actually use it, but compared to C, C++ and microslave languages no one seems to use it at all. Sometimes it even appears to me that COBOL and FORTRAN are more popular l...

Ya I still really don't understand what happened, nor do I care. I wasn't in love with that girl so that bit didn't affect me much emotionally. Also the false accusations revealed her to be very thoroughly a bitch. The sad part is how such a beautiful morning (in terms of nature) was ruined so compl...

A sad story (c92)

This comic reminded me of a sad story this summer. I was seventeen years old and at a summer camp at some college in Vermont. I had too much dark chocolate so I didn't go to sleep that night. At around four thirty I gave up on trying to fall asleep put on my clothes and went outside. The landscape ...

It's fixed. Escaping double quotes doesn't always work right so I just use single quotes; I thought I had fixed them everywhere. Thanks. Also, don't forget, I could be a bot who starts forums (and associated webcomics) and then sells access to other bots. Checked just now, refreshed the page a bunc...

I think I found a bug in comic 36

For the caption (<img title="caption">) of comic 36, the double quotes are not escaped so it reads: A leading expert characterized the situation as instead of: A leading expert characterized the situation as "retarded" If doing that was intentional, mods can make this topic go aw...
