> But if you're going to be loud and outspoken

I'm not sure how anyone can be loud considering that most of the feedback has been written. And I don't see anything wrong with being outspoken. (And you obviously don't either, as you are quite outspoken in this post).

>to creators who had nothing to do with the story

These creators are giving approval to the current status quo. That makes criticism of those approvals appropriate.

>for over a year...

It hasn't been over a year, but I hope the "outspokenness" goes for years and years. I've equated fan response to the boy who cried wolf. I am not surprised that Marvel underestimated the negative fan reaction initially, since negative fan reaction is a normal thing. But I think that Guggenheim is slowly learning that this time a lot of fans are not following the normal pattern of criticize, complain, and move on and keep buying.

> don't be surprised when they A) stop taking you seriously and B) start answering with quips instead of making genuine arguments like they did directly following OMD.

They never made genuine arguments (with the possible exception of Brevoort). If you go back and read Quesada's CBR interview it consists of strawmen, false dilemmas, slippery slope, and condescension.

> And there is a grain of sense there. If you perceive a civil union as marriage, then yes, by living together for 5+ years, Peter and MJ were still married in a legal sense.

If that's true, why has Marvel gone to such great lengths to wipe out the "m" word?

> The only way anyone loses anything is if you view marriage as something that has to do with a ceremony

I don't think that is anyone's definition of marriage, anywhere, ever.
