But not contributing much. If he wants to make a point, he should write down his point, not post some stupid comic.

Jeez, relax…it is a joke. I thought it was funny, whilst also making a point, which is really obvious, and does not require written text. I don’t know how many off-topic “funny” remarks have been posted in this thread, and you’re raging against an on-topic cartoon? The forum rules allow image only posts if they are on-topic btw, and the cartoon makes a good point regarding the application of TLJ’s in-universe logic. It’s a nitpick to an extend, but it is also a valid criticism, considering the film features both a slow chase, where the bad guys somehow cannot get in range to kill the good guys for the reason of plot convenience, and a ship, that is used by the good guys as a lightspeed torpedo against the bad guys at a critical point in the film. It does make it seem, like RJ wanted to have his cake and eat it.

Ps. I should add, that I feel the cartoon is more entertaining than this post.

I’m not raging. And the rules say “No image-only posts unless the image has a direct bearing on the topic at hand and it adds value to the discussion.” I agree that the pic was on-topic, however, whether it adds value to the discussion is very debatable.

You might not feel so, but I do, so there you go. I’m not in favour of disagreeing with an opinion, and then to pass it off as not having value, or something even less pleasant. There’s too much of that going on around here. I would rather discuss the point being made.

I’m not saying the opinion in the comic has no value, I’m saying expressing your opinion by posting someone else’s comic without context is bad form. People have to assume your exact opinion and you can brush off any criticism with “it’s just a joke”, which is a pretty bad excuse in general.
