Templar: Special FAQ update!

Hey guys! New page, and question-answering time. I've been getting a few emails and comments, and it's easier to answer 'em all at once in one place.


What's up with all the John McCain banner ads on the site?

I belong to a few ad networks. Some let me pick which ads I run, some don't. One ad network in particular is serving the John McCain ads, and it happens to be one of the ones that doesn't ask me my opinion on what it serves. It also happens to be the best-paying one I'm on.

So what's up? Capitalism. That's what. I gotta buy that ink and paper and pizza, guys. I don't like John McCain, but Republican money spends just as well as Democrat. If his campaign guys wanna waste their time flooding my favorite network and running expensive ads on a webcomic site, I'm not gonna stop 'em.

If it's any consolation, they should be thinning out in the near future.

BAW HAW HAW! Are you seriously on Gaia?!?

Sure am! I'm also on The Webcomic List Forums, Half Pixel, Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, Deviant Art, Something Awful, and a bunch of other stuff I can't really remember right now. I don't know, I'm an easy lay when it comes to this "social networking"/forum crap.

Search the usernames IronSpike, Iron_Spike, Iron Spike, etcetera. Whoever you find is probably me.

I also have an alt on Gaia, because sometimes the kids in the Comic Creators subforum ban me from posting in their ego stroke threads when I tell them Kodansha isn't raring to publish their Chobits knockoff. Nobody gets it. But that kinda makes it better.

Can you tell me what you think of my comic?

Oh God, I am so freaking sorry, but I just don't have the time. I already don't answer half of my email, I can't give you a fair assessment. Don't loathe me.

I think that's it for now.

Oh, but wait, I forget: I HAVE A FACEBOOK FAN GROUP! Join, should the fancy strike you! I didn't start it, but I post there and answer questions and stuff.
