Definitely trolling, in my view... 15:54, 12 July 2020 (UTC) In the explanation the DVD-owner is refered to as cueball, however in the transcript they are the friend, is this just a mix-up or...-- 06:10, 6 January 2014 (UTC)

Which should be changed? The description and transcript completely disagree on who is watching/who is commenting. Ad1217 (talk) 01:06, 6 May 2014 (UTC)
I have corrected both explanation and transcript. As both look like Cueball then neither can be described as being him! Also added more info and links to explain Kynde (talk) 20:52, 8 May 2014 (UTC)
Please do not remove the Cueball references here. He is a standard character here. The category Category:Comics featuring Cueball gives just an overview about all comics showing this stick figure. --Dgbrt (talk) 21:07, 8 May 2014 (UTC)
But who should define who Cueball is? You? I could see him as both here. And somebody did. You have just corrected back so that the Cueball in the explain is switched to the other charachter in the transcript. At least one of these should then be changed to match the other. It is thus also clear that people have different views of what Cueball stands for. Is he the one trolling, or is he the one who knows which movie Blade Runner is?

By the way - I did not remove the reference to the chategory - but only in the text as described above. Kynde (talk) 07:38, 10 May 2014 (UTC)
Now I have corrected the transcript so the Cueball here matches your choice in the explanation. Which I could not say is better that the reverse - but it is less confusing. Randall do not call him Cueball - that is his readers that have used this nane - which is also why there can be more than one "Cueball" in one comic. Neither of these should then be considered to be Cueball in my oppinion. But if you have a way to define why it should be the guy who watches the DVD who is Cueball I would like to hear.

Agreed that it's definitely trolling. Really don't think that paragraph needs the second part about possibly being confused. (Also, I feel like the troller makes a better "Cueball" because they're sort of the "protagonist", in that they're driving the discussion? idk. Doesn't matter too much though.)
