Additionally, SMBC comics do deal with real topics now and again. I've had a number of strips on religion, evolution, relationships, parents, etc. Of course, many are just ridiculous jokes, but I'd like to think at least a couple are worthy of a little chatter.
I could also cite a number of comics that have healthy forums despite having comics that don't necessitate a lot of discussion. In fact, explosm.net is probably the best example of this.
In any case, I'm definitely happy just having the comment board, but I sure wouldn't mind having a few more voices in the forum. Have a life concern? A controversial view? A crappy joke? Consider checking it out.

In other news, I'm running ads on the following sites currently:
January 23, 2008 UPDATE: I'm running ads at Explosm(NSFW) and Starslip Crisis today. If you're not familiar with them, they're both good comics, though very different from each other. If you're someone looking to buy ads with SMBC, traffic will be much higher than average for the next week or so. So, if you've been on the fence, now's the time.
Sorry for the racial slurs some moron posted on the comment board. It took me a little while to figure out how to delete it. These things will be taken care of more quickly in the future.
Meanwhile! I'll be learning a little computer programming (Java) for the first time this semester. I hope SMBC's nerds in residence will be willing to help when I have trouble.
