I think people are missing the point. The statement that really intrigued me was the one that noted that TV, movies, music and so on do not demand that the people who purchase their products shill for them. Of course they do not demand it. They don’t have to. People already tell everyone about the awesome new movie/band/TV show they saw/heard last Saturday night. People tell friends and co-workers about it. Oh, and what happens with television shows or movies doing low ratings/ticket sales but having a small band of fans? Well, often the stars, the directors and others involved star…well, begging the fans to tell their friends about it, write the network, studio and newspapers to let them know you love the show/movie. So, apparently, we fans are asked to shill for our favorite shows/movies/music afterall. So why the derision of Jimmie Robinson for asking the same of comic fans?
