in reply to My favorite web comic is:

I just added an "other" option to the poll. I'd intended one to be there, as people tend to get testy without one. :-)

I originally came up with a list by choosing from my own bookmarks some of the strips which see a lot of traffic, and then looking online for lists of the most popular strips generally. ysth suggested another list, and there was some discussion of how many options a poll should have. Since I have been busy, ysth was kind enough to link all the poll choices, suggest a final list, and post on my behalf. The "other" option got lost in the process. Had I been more attentive, I'd have noted this in the final draft; particularly in a poll like this one, we're not going to please everyone, and being able to vote "none of the above" tends to assuage people's outrage at seeing a list without $x.

As for the choices which are there, one thing I wanted was to stick to web comics, rather than print comics which were also published on the web. Web comics, like blogs, have become quite the phenomenon of do-it-yourself culture which, often, turn out to be better than what the professional writers have had to offer. So if you read over the choices several times, wondering, with increasing frustration, "Where's Nancy?"... well, sorry.

Anyway, I'm sure we missed some good choices, and it'll be interesting to find out about them in the comments.
