    More shallow commentary by Molton.

    He is an onion with one layer. Peel it back and nothing is in there.

    “He keeps getting under your skin well enough.”

    I’d like to see him in a “Cartoon Off” with a talented cartoonist. His one layer would get KO’d in the first round.

    As a pro critic, you should see his lack of depth and be critical of it.
    .
    If he were a conservative with such simple messages, I bet you would have a field day with him. Are you giving Molton a pass because you agree with him.

    You know he is giving him a pass, he gives everyone a pass that see’s eye to eye with him.

    I’m not actually giving him any kind of a pass at all. I’m amused by the fact that he irritates you — and it’s always a bonus when it riles up Asheville Troller — which has nothing to do with Molton’s abilities or lack thereof.

    By the way, I’m not a pro-critic of political cartoons.

  5. Asheville Dweller

    Ummmm you are quite the defender of his political cartoons, you have blasted me for it in the past. Just because people like to kiss up to you doesnt make you right or righteous.

    And He doesnt irritates me and neither do you but your self justification on all your reasons for what ever you come up with does give me a chuckle.

    Makes me glad that Im not a sad, shallow human being that begs for attention or validation from my peers in my community.

    Ummmm you are quite the defender of his political cartoons, you have blasted me for it in the past.

    I have blasted you for being nothing but a font of negativity so often that I have lost track. I have never seen you post anything even remotely constructive.

    Just because people like to kiss up to you doesnt make you right or righteous.

    Never claimed it did — and if you think everyone kisses up to me, you haven’t been reading very carefully.

    Makes me glad that Im not a sad, shallow human being that begs for attention or validation from my peers in my community.

    You achieved being sad and shallow with no help whatever. Congratulations.

  7. Asheville Dweller

    You blast me and other folks all the time but its ok because your part of the in crowd around here.

    Im sorry Im not sad nor shallow just a realist that doesnt looks at the world with closed eyes.

    No, actually you’re just a troll who shows up (under a screen name — so brave) from time to time to talk about how everyone and everything in Asheville is so awful.

  9. Asheville Dweller

    You have no real defense so you Attack of my using of screen name (even if I used my real name you would NEVER believe it) you never call anyone else out on their screen names, but most of those folks you agree with so no need to. And you resort to calling me a troll, I give examples and back up what I say so Im a troll, how classless of you for not being able to handle a discussion or any critisim of something, when being a critic yourself.

    I didnt say everything is Asheville is awful, never have.

  10. Ken Hanke

    you never call anyone else out on their screen names

    Oh, that is demonstrably not true.

    give examples and back up what I say so Im a troll, how classless of you for not being able to handle a discussion or any critisim of something, when being a critic yourself.

    Oh, please, you haven’t given anything but your opinion that I’m part of some imaginary in-crowd. That’s about it.

    I didnt say everything is Asheville is awful, never have

    I’ve never seen you praise or support anything. Everyone I know thinks you’re a troll. Most of them think you should just be banned. Of course, I realize everyone I know is part of some vast network of cool Asheville, etc., etc.

    Are y’all commenting on the cartoon or sniping at each other? We suspect the latter, and moderated commenters continuing this line will be held… and unmoderated folks may be switched to moderated, per the policy you agree to when you register.
