    ^I disagree. I like the comics. The information articles don’t interest me that much, because I already know pretty much everything they bring to the table, and every now and then they have a small technical misinformation. (Except for the “only one wipe of a HDD is required”… that was a big one) For the most part, they help people figure out how to effectively use their computers, and I enjoy the comics. Frankly, if there were a flag feature on this site, your comment would be flagged. I hope they remove it.

    Keep up the good work HTG.

    To HTG sucks: Nobody forced you to visit this site, and if you don’t like it why don’t you just quietly leave? If you can do better, start your own site. No need to trash anything.

    To HTG sucks: I find it funny and lame that you have to hide behind a fake name to troll. I’m sorry, your life must be sad and boring if you find it productive/amusing to come here and trash talk anonymously.

    @HTG *you-know-what* Seriously? That’s like walking into a concert and shouting “You *you-know-what*!” when you didn’t even hear the singer properly.

    Great comic. Almost wish I could’ve read the removed comment ;)

    I’m with @JahPickney. I missed the flagged/removed comment, but I enjoy the comic and the daily articles. Thanks, HTG!

    On the nose. In almost every video that people take of cops, the cops are always ordering people to stop filming them, although the cops think nothing of having cameras everywhere to film everyone else.

    that reminds me old the old cop line for “consent” vehicle searches, “if you’ve nothing to hide then you won’t mind if i search your car…” reply “you admit that you don’t think i’ve got nothing to hide, and no, i do not consent to your searching my car.”
