I don't really like what you said about Jules Verne copying Hergé. I am really displeased with it, even if you just mean it as a joke. You might be not too fond of him, but still, just respect him anyway. (I am seriously irritated looking at that post, just so you know).
Well obviously it isn’t my intention to irritate you, but as you say, my post is obviously a joke, and I feel justified in having made the comment in a lighthearted manner, especially as in the four years since I made it, it has failed to cause any comment.
As to who I am “not too fond of”, I don’t understand the remark, given that I actually like both Jules Verne and
Hergé, and I can’t see how you arrived at the conclusion you came to.
This thread, as far as I remember, is for those who LOVE Jules Verne's works, NOT those who CONDEMN or even HATE them at the utmost intensity.
This is a more serious point.
Firstly, please do not use a thread to dictate what is, and isn’t appropriate; that’s the job of the moderators and Admin, and if they feel it necessary, they will take steps to control members who act inappropriately.
Secondly, there is nothing which says that this thread is dedicated to worship of Jules Verne, and only open to those who are uncritical of him: we run open forums, within the terms and conditions which all members agree to when they join, and, within those terms, it is just as fair for someone to offer an entirely antithetical position as it would be for someone else to gush about his genius.
You may not like their point of view (which is, upon re-reading their post not exactly as you interpret it, as it doesn’t express hatred, as you put it), but you have to let them have their say too.
