    That is ONE incident. I know perfectly well what the show is like (been there once for a birthday) and I still want to go again. I feel slightly maligned by the way this article makes me sound like a moronic lunatic for wanting to go. Me and my man are nerds for that sort of thing, it doesn't make us lesser beings than you. Sure, I'm not chomping at the bit for front row seats now (though, really, what are the chances at this point? Twice in one year? I doubt it.) Regardless, your insulting tone is uncalled for. You don't have to insinuate it's Wiseman's fault just for going there.

      Hi LLS, No, there was no insinuation that it was Wiseman's fault that he got hit in the eye–it's a terrible injury he's endured and not his fault that it happened. Having been to Medieval Times, however, and having had the pleasure of being the fair maiden selected from the audience to be swept off her feet and taken to the dais to await my noble knight–well, it's not my idea of how I would've spent my honeymoon. There are those, however, who enjoy the show–repeatedly. Just as there are those who enjoy being professional wrestling roadies, seeing Cats or Phantom 32 times, or attending every Trekkie event. To each his own. I'm glad you enjoy the show–many happy returns, just hopefully not, as you mention, in front row seats. If so, bring your kite shield or pavise–which I think they also sell in the gift shop.

        Masterful. Bravo! I really admire an administrator who takes the time to troll the user comments, and I mean that sincerely. I like how L.L.S. is hurt over the idea of the author maligning nerds for the consequences of their honeymoon choice, and so you dig the dagger/dirk/sgian-dubh deeper with your response by comparing her and Wiseman to a laundry list of social deviants. Nice! “To each his own” is like the condescension-flavored icing on the cake! Classic bigotry used for comical effect. If you applied that same sense of moral superiority to a social cause, like combating gay marriage, you could set back LGBT rights twenty years. Hearing your take on the poor, comic book nerds, or immigrants must be an awesome experience. Thumbs up!
