User Friendly

I used to get my daily fix of User Friendly via Livejournal's RSS feeds. User Friendly is ad-revenue-driven, and wossname who runs it recently canceled the RSS feed, because people reading the comic were avoiding the ads. No ads = no revenue, I hear.

There couldn't have been that many people reading on LJ. (LJ Syndicated Feeds says there's currently less than 500 users, FYI.) I'm trying to keep up with UF, but more than half the time where I look for the site, I can't get it to load. Marketing genius at work, IMO.

That's odd. I've always read it through the website and I've had almost no problems getting through to it. Weird.

I can't blame Illiad for cutting the feed, though, since I think the strip is one of his primary sources of income. So the ads would be important. Annoying, but important.

I don't blame him
Nevertheless, not being able to reach his site means that he's no longer having any impact on me. And I'm an important guy! *snicker*

The Gods of the Internet are trying to tell you that User Friendly is a tired, talentless channelling of Slashdot Anonymous Cowards and that your life would be better without it.

I mean, name a single decent userfriendly comic in the past year.

Name one? No...
My life is better, but not because of giving up User Friendly. It's because of reading Irregular Webcomic.
