  • DeCarlo Rules: On a relatated note, the real FIRST Vampironica appeared in Larry Welz' underground comic Cherry Poptart #1 [link]. That can be had right now, CGCed at 9.4, at the Buy-It-Now price of $280 on ebay. Although the book had several subsequent printings, only the first printing ($2 cover price) contains the Vampironica story. Much, much scarcer than B&V #261 & 262, but then far fewer people seem to be aware of its existence. It may not be the same Vampironica as the one that appears in her own comic book from ACP, but then you can easily make the argument that neither is the Vampironica from B&V 261-262.

  • rusty: Apparently Betty and Veronica #261 and 262 (1987 series) are popular now due to Vampironica.  Somebody actually purchased a copy of #261 for $299 on ebay recently.

Oldiesmann: I'm also very disappointed at these events but the wrong people were punished. It's obvious that De Carlo Rules and his sockpuppet Cosmo were the cause of this. I have great respect for Dan Decarlo, the artist but not his rules. It's obvious he runs this board, not you. Yes, there is an asshole on this board and it's the 3 of you.


For the record, I'm NOT Alexandra Cabot, Mr. Lodge, Rusty, Cosmo or anybody else. Check your IP addresses.

Don't know how long you've been around here but "Alexandra Cabot"/"B-ko" has been on here starting arguments forever.  Sorry but your take is just wrong.  I've quit the board several times because of her (his?) nonsense.  I would love it if it's over forever, but given the history I'm guessing it will be back sooner than later.

Well so long Ronnie. I hope you and Alexandra find some board where foul language and negative attitudes are more appreciated and you'll have a good time.

Best of luck.

I got 2 boxes of neon colored pencils at Staples. My aide & I got a drink at KFC. There's a guy who a table filled with books . And some times he has comics too. I looked through them . Sadly no Archie. I used some Neon colored pencils to color Rose Nylund in that Golden Girls Coloring Book. I finished 3 pictures of the girls when I finish 12 I'm going hang in my comic frames. I'll post a picture of it on Twitter.  Tonight I colored a picture of Dorothy & Blanche. It's not finished yet.

- Unpopular opinion: I will miss Alexandra
- @Ronnie, I hope you reconsider and stay.
- It's a good thing the applaud/smite funtions were disabled that way Cosmo (or anyone else for that matter) won't be allowed to go on more smiting sprees anymore.
- I don't know but Vegan Jughead comments still make me think he is spazaru(even though he denies it ;) [size=78%] ).[/size]

FWIW, there've been times when I've been randomly smiled by a member of this board. And it wasn't Cosmo and it certainly didn't happen on the hour every hour, but it was a member who's now banned from this forum.


I also hope that Ronnie stays.

Did anyone ever think to ask Ronnie for a list of links to the posts for which she received the smites? If not, then how do you know the smites were gratuitous, rather than deserved? If Cosmo is a new member, it seems logical to me he might be spending time reading through a lot of older posts. If he found some offensive and rude, isn't that what the smite button existed for? And if he found a LOT of them rude, then that's just mute testimony to the behavior of people who feel free to abuse the power of free speech in a completely unmoderated setting.

Cosmo was attacked for the smiting, and accused of being an "asshole" (Ronnie's word, not mine). Judging from that one thread she posted (which is deserving of a smite in and of itself), I would tend to believe she was not innocent and victimized, but fully capable of the kind of rudeness for which the smiting button existed. Cosmo responded to the accusation in a restrained and polite manner, so I have no reason to think he's just someone who's sitting behind a keyboard cackling with maniacal glee thinking "I will DESTROY you! HAHAHAHAH!!!" Besides which, why then would he single out Ronnie? She's not that active in posting.

On the other hand, it seems some people don't require any proof of wrongdoing other than a mere accusation. The number of smites doesn't matter, not if you can't show me the posts that were smited to try to justify that the smites were unwarranted. You can't just smite a person multiple times by going to their profile page. You need to smite a specific post for what it contains. That's the only way it works. If Ronnie's posts that were smited were innocent of any offense, then let her show them to everyone. There's no way for anyone else to discover that for themselves, because only Ronnie got alerted when any of her posts received a smiting.

Well, if anyone is interested (I admit after considering it hypothetically, when I realized she only had 20 posts, I figured it wouldn't take up too much of my time):

http://www.archiefans.com/profile/?u=61;area=showposts;start=0

Not too surprisingly to me after the brouhaha created by her accusatory thread, I find the general tone of her posts (short as they are) to be bitter and snarky, with nearly half of them containing some sort of offensive comment, rude remark, or vulgarity.

Are people that hung up on superhero comics? :idiot2:

Superhero comics are basically for basement-dwelling dweebs that don't have a life (here's a penny, go buy one, I want change back). For them a date is a nut that's something to eat and sex involves a sock and a supple right wrist along with the latest DC/Marvel comic for encouragement.

Well, I admit there's nothing offensive in that one. I only quote it here for irony. At least she got to experience the drama firsthand by starting some herself.

So I find 9 arguably smite-worthy comments out of a mere 20 very short posts. Pretty high percentile there. If I was looking at fifty or one hundred posts of a few sentences to a paragraph each, maybe I'd just brush those questionable things off as of no account, merely random instances. But for such a limited total word count, she manages to be much more offensive than makes me comfortable, especially considering that the post I reprinted above in its entirety (#9) is one of the few containing more than a couple of sentences.

I will not miss her. She contributed nothing of any real value that I can see.

SJW is difficult as a descriptor. It says little and implies a lot when you refer to social justice warriors. I'm probably a social justice warrior, or a partial SJW. Whatever that means.

I still don't understand how Archie Comics, something so inoffensive and banal (at least the classic ones), can inspire such vitriol in people. It boggles my mind.


I think people like Alexandra/Ronnie come on the forums to feel good about themselves because they think they can one up these innocent Archie Comics fans. They believe most Archie fans are stupid because the comics are so simplistic. 


There is enough negativity in this world. I come here to relax and have fun. Why not talk about other hobbies/interests you enjoy if there's nothing going on in the Archie-verse? There are enough places on the internet i.e. Reddit, the YouTube comments section were these negative types can go play word games with each other.
