...and how many of you kept reading?

...how much time did it take you to start ASM again?

...are you still not reading ASM?

I acctually stopped reading and still haven´t picked up an issue but I think by boycoting days of ASM have been enough. ASM Annual seems intreasting and that story of Harry Osborn not knowing how he´s alive again seems good enough for me to restart ASM.

Never stopped. One More Day was complete crap but Brand New Day is worth reading.

I love Spidey.  Yes it was a stupid decision.  Doesn't change the fact that Spidey is still Spidey.  There's been some good stories.  I may be in the minority but I thought The Other was a horrible storyline and I stuck through that.  I especially like the three times a month versus separate titles.

I dropped Spider-Man altogether during that run. I just took a look at Brand New Day vol. 1 trade and the story is fun and I really enjoyed it, but I wont buy any issues out of principle.

Brand New Day was actually a great read.

I stopped during the One More Day run. I took a look at Brand New Day vol. 1 trade last week and fully enjoyed it. But I am still angered by OMD.

I've been reading Spider-Man for 20 years, but i dropped it after OMD.
And i actually liked Maximum Carnage and even the Clone Saga, but this was so outstandingly bad.

Yeah OMD was bad, but I still keep reading.

Interesting thing about it was the questions in Wizard magazine:
"is BND story bad?", majority answered - yes
"spidey marriage good or bad?", majority answered - good

so I still keep hoping they fix it someday....

I liked The Other Arc, but not OMD.  Myself and my friend who used to be big ASM fans refuse to read anymore until they fix that crap.  Anyway I really like Ultimate Spidey better anyway, actually I like all the Ultimates.

OMD should get rectonned into, hell, the abyss, oblivion, the void, the pit, and all the way back, and then back into those places

You can't really effectively fix this with a retcon without completely erasing things that have happened since OMD, which would be another backwards step in my opinion. I think people have to get over the fact that all that stuff that was undone is undone and we all just have to let the Spider-Man story run it's natural course. I doubt it will be that long before the inevitable Spidey/MJ hook-up, then we'll go through the entire courtship all over again.

Yes OMD was, quite possibly, the worst story in comicbook history (whether you liked Mary Jane or not,) and we feel betrayed by our EIC, but I'm not going to end a relationship with a character that I've developed over many years because of one bad story, no matter how monumentally terrible it is.
