    Unless, of course, you intention is to try and invalidate my argument by ignoring it, as you've done, and casting aspersions on my character instead?[/quote

      It's my time, not yours, and I'll spend it however I damned well please, so unless you actually have something to say about the content that I've posted, I don't feel the need to respond to anything you say, because to employ your own standards of what counts as acceptable armchair psychology, any arguments I might make would be wasted on someone whose only agenda is to discredit me by passive-aggressive means.

    I'm not trying to " diagnose you " or even discredit you; I am addressing the content of your post. But the Why of the post is just as important as the What, so I want to know, in your own words, why you think it is important to record the sales data for Amazing Spider-Man since Brand New Day, and what you think you get out of doing so.

    Especially when the action is counter-intuitive to the kind of direction you want Marvel to stop taking; outrage is just as valuable to Marvel as praise. It is disinterest that kills their sales, not outrage; of all the people who have stopped buying ASM, what might the proportion of people who protested on the internet be compared to the people who simply stopped buying and devoted their energies elsewhere?
