Doesn't look like anyone's touched this during its spotlight as the Incomplete Article of the Day. But really, what else can we say? 199.27.128.66 03:06, 14 November 2013 (UTC)

Maybe how deeply compelling the "need" to fix something wrong on the Internet is? It's not just a plain correction.... it gnaws at you...108.162.219.8 03:17, 14 November 2013 (UTC)

Tried to flesh out/improve the analysis. Still needs some editing for clarity [I'm not sure how formal the tone of this wiki is supposed to be?] but hopefully it's an improvement on the previous edit. 108.162.216.56 17:47, 14 November 2013 (UTC)

I think its good. Hits on all the points, unless anyone sees differently I think it adequately explains the comic. I think all the editing from here is flow and stylistic stuff. And that's minimal. --Lackadaisical (talk) 20:22, 14 November 2013 (UTC)

It's a Cunningham's law reference, guys, that's it. 141.101.106.155 (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

The title "Duty Calls" has a double meaning. One that Cueball needs to go "fix" the internet and that he needs to "be" with his S/O. 108.162.216.47 21:04, 26 August 2015 (UTC) 127.0.0.1 (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

I think this explanation misses the case when someone is factually wrong on the internet, and doesn't just have a different opinion. For example, when someone on Facebook "discovers" that the Mercator map projection is "wrong" and that the "true" one is Gall-Peters (true story), I believe even Randall would feel the need to say something. But of course, the border between factual errors and arguing is very thin... 162.158.150.64 09:50, 8 June 2017 (UTC)
