'PIBGORN': McEldowney & Universal UClick remove comments section
(courtesy of Universal UClick)
Universal UClick announced Thursday that it has decided, in partnership with the artist, to remove the feature's online comments section due to the "mature" nature of the conversation.
"The Pibgorn comments sections have long presented a prickly issue," the syndicate writes. "The atmosphere was at odds with both Brooke's intentions in creating and displaying his art, and with our goals for the GoComics community. It was a problem with no easy solution."
In apologizing for the sudden switch, the syndicate notes: "We hope that Pibgorn fans will continue to enjoy Brooke's work and the other great talents on display here at Gocomics.com, and that you will continue to take part in the GoComics community."
If "Pibgorn" fans are determined to make their voices heard elsewhere, it will be eminently interesting -- and fruitful -- to follow where they might migrate.
