The first rule of holes is to stop digging once you find yourself in one.

Adams should have apologized rather than trying to justify the unjustifiable.

He didn’t, and now finds himself in a yet deeper hole.

Some people need to learn through painful personal experience. Scott Adams may be one of those people.

What do these people have against Dilbert?

calling his intelligence into question.

Adams kinda made their case for 'em.

Mary Elizabeth Williams of Salon offers a more analytical take. "...it's a profound statement of cynicism about the nature of online community..."

Anyone who does not have a "profound cynicism" with any so-called "online community" is a moron.

But what Ms. 3-Name is really upset about is that someone liberals love made a "statement" against it. In liberal land, you DO NOT speak against the group. Your reasons, as Ms. 3-Name exerts herself to indicate, are completely irrelevent. The group is life. Disagreement is death. For liberals, there is nothing else - nothing.

And the purpose of 3-Named Leftist Kapos is to make sure liberals never forget that.

“Anyone can be anyone on the internet.” - Wow. That’s some kind of power there.

About 30% of the time Dilbert makes me laugh which is a much better rate than most of the stuff I read on the Internet or see in the papers, the few times I read them anymore. That’s about all that I ask of Scott Adams.

Adams was revealed to have been using an online pseudonym to bash message board users who did not have nice things to say about him.

I mean, I like Dilbert and the little brouhaha over Adams' comments on women was ridiculous. But this is just lame. Time to let it go, Scott.
