I'm not sure what this means.

True. But there are so many people around here that are like, "Mirage... 2k3... SAME THING! LOLZ!"

Dumb. Wrong.

I read Return to New York and seen the 2k3 episode I actually prefer the 2k3 adaptation over the original Mirage version.
Well there's no accounting for taste, I suppose.

No sh*t. I'm not "griping" about 2k3 any more than I "gripe" about any of the other cartoons... they're not intended for you or I, they're intended for this guy:

Which says more about you than it says anything about me.

Probably right.
