Here's an answer to the "social strata" rant earlier by that other letter sender to the same mailing list:

"When you're using your own money to produce things on your own like comic books, then, yes it matters.

Comic book people who produce their own books should think about "uncool" stuff like distribution and marketing. Unless of course you're doing it for-fucking-art's-sake.

When you're making your own money and you want to make sure you're getting your money's worth before you buy something, then fair reviews matter.

Truth is, not everyone can afford to buy a comic book. Some people would like to actually buy a meal first, get clothes, make sure they get a roof over their heads and have enough left to commute to work everyday so yeah, you can't blame people for being picky.

And yeah, labels matter for people who make it their jobs to label people."
