Re: Utlimate Spider-Man is half black, half Hispanic

I don't think it's necessarily racism. Depends who's saying it. I can understand a lot of comic fans disliking change. Peter Parker is Spider-Man. That's how it's always been (not quite true but I'll gloss over Reilly), that's how they want it. In mythology, Thor was red-haired but Marvel wants thei...

Re: Free Dandy in The Sunday Post

Re: Hello, I'm new...except I'm not

Nope, email address is ok. And I have an spam filter with certain words that automatically reject (as opposed to spam folder), so it depends what's in the email (I probably know what that is but not worth messing about with it as it works so well 99% of the time).

Re: Hello, I'm new...except I'm not

Been unable to log-in and the new password send didn't work for me (I expect it probably contains some word that I've spam filtered). So for chrissmillie, now read starscape.
