Thank you Wil for the new post: "The Eternal Struggle." You, sir, are a gentlemen and a scholar. MarkSchneider's attention is now distracted. The downside is that you have only strengthened MarkSchneider's perceived relationship with you by providing the names and pictures of your pets. :) If MarkSchneider was on the Holodeck, I could hear him say, "Computer, make me some friends."

You are correct. Your logic has confounded me. Or you completely missed the point, once again. Go ahead and assume the former. Will--please oh please post something new on your blog so that MarkSchneider will have something to comment on. ;)

Thank you for proving my point. You posted in an earlier comment that you have never met Wil Wheaton. Therefore, YOU DON'T KNOW HIM! Stop acting like you do. That is the point. You are (as we all are) a fan of his work; nothing more. By the way, your above post and your prior posts are a tad creepy. You sound like you already have the drawings ready to make a skin suit of Wil Wheaton. Run Wil. Run; especially if you see a man asking for your help to put furniture in a van. ;) Seriously buddy, you missed the point of my comment. Your "experiences" with Wil are irrelevant. (As a side note, your comments imply that you are best friends with Wil. For example, your previous comment was about what Wil’s wife's reaction would be to his dice collection. Creepy. You don’t know either of them. Comment on his work. Not his relationship with his wife. Creepy.) The point of my post was about "celebrity" and crazed fans who claim to know the celebrity (but don't) and are willing to tell the celebrity that they are perfect and always right. I am sorry, but you appear to fit in that category.

I really like Wil Wheaton. I think he is a great entertainer, actor and writer. I have heard him speak on several occasions; and like many of the above, I think he is awesome. But, I am sorry, the above comments are ridiculous. Just because we like Wil doesn't mean that he wasn't a dick to "Lilith" or in front of Lilith. (Clearly this wasn’t just about a refusal to give an impromptu picture, as Lilith mentioned several other things that apparently offended her.) I am sure Brittany Spears, Lindsay Lohan and other moron celebrities have people around them telling them that they are amazing and to ignore the bad things people are saying about them. Isn't that the problem with being a celebrity -- no one will tell you when you are wrong? I know that it is a really exaggerated comparison (obviously Wil is not like those freak celebrities), but I think the point is valid. Obviously Lilith was offended. Just because we all think Wil is awesome doesn't mean that he acted awesome. And it certainly doesn’t mean that he is perfect. Maybe he had an off day and was, indeed, a dick. If he was, then he should apologize, and none of us should be telling him that he shouldn’t. Clearly none of us were there. So how would we know what happened? These anecdotes of our encounters with Wil or with another celebrity are irrelevant to whether he was a dick at the Phoenix Comicon or not. The above posts sound like lemmings who would tell their favorite celebrity whatever they want to hear. I am sorry, I am not trying to be rude. I can definitely hear Wil saying something similar to what I just wrote about a celebrity who acted like a jerk and just didn't offer a sincere apology (instead of rationalizations). I mean give me a break. If we are to believe this Lilith chick, she saw Wil being rude to people. The world spins on. Apologize or don’t. Change your behavior next time or don’t. But why listen to a bunch of people who weren't there and don't know you? Anyone (including celebrities and normal people) should apologize when someone tells them that they have been offended. I hope that Wil believes the same. And now, I am sure many of the above will respond with comments attacking me. But, seriously guys, just because someone is a celebrity doesn’t mean that they don’t make mistakes. I sincerely like Wil Wheaton and, although I don’t know him personally (as I am sure none of you do as well), I am sure he is a great guy. Anyways, there is my rant for the month.
