I'd like to know what is drawn from the Penny Arcade editorial piece, or see it withdrawn from the sources. --Brian McNeil / talk 22:06, 15 February 2007 (UTC)

Well, the fact that it existed was the main point - it is there to backup the phrase "including satirical commentary by gaming webcomic/blog Penny Arcade" (which is a publication of note in gaming circles). The comic itself is the first link in the editorial, which I felt was better, as there is no obvious link to the editorial (you click "News"). I was tempted to copy the first frame of the comic as an image, but I felt it would be better to just point interested readers to it. GreenReaper 22:25, 15 February 2007 (UTC)
I've added in a quote from Penny Arcade's post that I feel well-represents the intent of the comic. GreenReaper 22:35, 15 February 2007 (UTC)
Jerry's comment needs some context. You need to explain what starforce is to give his dismissive remark context where it has weight. --Brian McNeil / talk 22:45, 15 February 2007 (UTC)
Hmm. Better? I'm trying not to expand it too much, or it'll require a whole article, which would have been perfectly suitable at the time but doesn't seem appropriate for relatively old news that is being used as background material. GreenReaper 23:02, 15 February 2007 (UTC)
