I have to agree with the original post's basic point:

When did Hannelore become so gullible?

Ever since her pregnancy "scare" I've been wondering where and when she lost her common sense. Possibly the most interesting character has become nothing more than panic-induced comic relief.

I was about to say, "Yeah, things have been going downhill since the pregnancy scare," but then I looked at all of the comics between then and the Worry Hat arc, and I like Hanners in most of them. (Especially the Mr. Clean one and the dream sequence arc.) I felt that some were kind of "eh," but that nothing was over-the-top; she doesn't especially seem to lack common sense in most of them. (Any more so than she ever did.)

I just haven't been enjoying the Worry Hat arc too much. There have been enough "Hanners worrying over nothing" strips already, so new strips with that theme feel worn out, and the whole thing seemed predictable. Hanners freaking out about blood to the point where she throws out anything with a bloodstain on it is over-the-top even for her character. And as someone pointed out in the WCT thread, Tai is pulling a Faye in that Faye tried to frighten new Coffee of Doom employees with stories about giant coffee spiders (and succeeded with Raven). Gullibility is one of Raven's characteristics, not Hanners's.

Maybe Jeph is morphing Hanners into Raven, since we never see Raven anymore.

I think the visit from her mother may have accelerated her self-infantilism. While I do think the current Hannelore who can't cope with a minor scalp laceration and who goes catatonic when informed of the reason she shouldn't play drums in a mid-thigh skirt is hyper cute, on the verge of being kawai, I'd like to see her make some breakthroughs in coping with her OCD with her therapist, like Faye is.

She has made some breakthroughs in coping with her OCD. She's made friends and spends time with them instead of spending all of her time cleaning. In one strip, Marten asked her to have dinner with him and some others, and at first she answered, "No, I have to clean." Then she changed her mind because she remembered that her therapist told her that she shouldn't let her OCD get in the way of her socializing.

Tai forgot to mention the Vashta Nerada.

Yeah, but how do we know that the books came from a forest where the Vashta Nerada lived?

Maybe you should shut it. And if you don't like where the comic is going, stop reading it. I mean, like, now-ish. Maybe you should just get knocked up to fill up your free time, no?

(not to be mean, but seriously. stop bitching)

This is a forum. Discussions happen here. Discussions are not always fawning adulation and praise--sometimes they involve criticism, complaint, and yes, bitching.

Bitching at someone about bitching is hypocritical in the extreme.

Unless you are a mod, telling someone to shut up in a discussion forum is antithetical to the purpose of both discussions and forums.

Ok, I understand. And I apologize. And that was also one of my first posts. And I was already told to watch the tone.
And as far as I can see, you're bitching at me about bitching about bitching. And if you aren't, I don't understand the point of you attempting to reprimand for something that was resolved. Or did you just not read a couple posts later?

Also, I am pretty sure I am not the only person in the forum who isn't a mod and has told someone to shut up. But I digress, I am sorry for doing so. And I haven't done so since. I apologize for using the word "and" way too much, everyone.

That's good. But the post, though quoting you, was not for you solely. Both the complaining about complaining and the "love it or be silent" demands are chronic here. Every once in a while, people need to be reminded about the purpose of forums, and your post happened to be the trigger point this time.

And as far as I can see, you're bitching at me about bitching about bitching. And if you aren't, I don't understand the point of you attempting to reprimand for something that was resolved. Or did you just not read a couple posts later?

There's a difference between complaining and explaining, both in tone and function. The former ascribes negative value to an action, and the latter describes the action's consequence. And as I have said, this is not merely about you, and I apologize if I have allowed you to come to that conclusion.

Apology accepted. Seeing as how it was a direct quote from me, and there was no one else quoted I came to the conclusion that I was being punished for a mistake that I made. Which is fine. I agree with you, and again, I'm sorry. I wasn't trying to be mean, but the whole point of this thread (in the very beginning) was to basically trash Hanners. And I was just trying to go to the opposite extreme of what was first said. My bad.

Ok, fight's over, shower up!

Relax, I'm just joking! I was just being silly. Honest. You are okay.

I know, its cool. I have the flu and I am a little delirious today. So I have been taking things personally. Ha. Oh man, I need to not have a fever.

Usually I'm so sarcastic and today I can't even pick up on sarcasm.

Thanks for letting me know that I'm alright, yo.

For the person who asked if there is birth control that stops your period completely: why yes, yes there is. (a) Lots of women take one of the major brand mixed pills and skip the sugar pills so no bleeding. Also, many women (like me!) get no period on the progesterone-only pill. Wooooo.

Plus yeah, I'm over the ditzy-cute Hanners stuff. I did find the worry hat cute though. *shrug* Cause you all needed to know my opinion :lol:

Jeph is right (twitter comment).  Definitely the best Hannelore look-alike ever.

I once had a plastic heron next to a pond.  It was as naff as hell, but it actually stopped the real heron coming to take the fish, which nothing else had managed to do.
