> I agree with his statement about the marriage bringing a stability to the character that changed his stories drastically. While he may be a bit enthusiastic, he certainly didn't sound like an idiot. There is truth to the statement that a healthy marriage has a comforting effect to it due to the sense of stability it allows.

I don't buy that for one second in that this entire story could have been told wiht a married Peter. Further the "comfort of a marriage" is really just that of a relationship. So if your argument is that Peter should never be in a relationship that's one thing but I don't think that is what you are saying.

As for Victor, I'm sorry but he's been trolling all week. Its one thing to be happy with BND but he specifically writes post (see the above one) designed to aggitate those who are against it. He's gotten as good as he's given but its still trolling and if he's going to accuse someone like me of being reactionary and then turned around and give the most reactionary post I've read on this board in a while, I'm going to call him on it.

Hypocrisy sounds idiotic in my opinion, if you don't feel that way its certainly your right.

That is what I'm saying. Peter Parker was never meant to be in a secure, longterm relationship. It changess the dynamics of the character and of the hero.

You weren't pointing out hypocrisy. You were saying that his statement sounded idiotic. There is a big differnce. As big a difference as there is in take my reply as a show of support for hypocrisy.
