a better example would be you wouldn't take drugs at a party where some people are doing drugs and some people aren't, you normally take drugs but you have a personal vendetta against this specific drug because one of your regular dealers that has never done you wrong says it's shit, even though he's never tried it himself, he just doesn't want anything to do with it, because it's based on a drug he is well known for supplying, but this stuff is new and different, and the people that sell it are also highly respected dealers, and they swear it's great, and you could try it, because in this metaphor drugs aren't addictive, so if you don't like it you never have to try it again.
Yeah, drug dealer metaphors just................boggle my mind.
The point to learn here is that people should be honest about their position on the prequels, if they like Watchmen, and they're excited, then they should go buy it, same for those who'd rather read them and do a negative review if it so seems to them.
It shouldn't matter to them what Moore believes or doesn't believe, and I don't think that makes him automatically wrong.
sorry about the drug dealer metaphor, I couldn't think of anything else and you had already set up the "at a party" basis for it, so I had to follow on.
But yeah, I totally agree, people should be honest about what they feel, and Moore's opinions should have no control over them at all.
Moore isn't right or wrong, he's stating an opinion, which is true to himself, but I feel like he's doing it in a manipulative way. He wants to spit venom at DC, and making statements like this is the only way he can, in the vain hopes that they will hurt DC's fortunes..
