Because Americans think that the Soviets were communist.

Idk how people talking about something makes it a good thing? People talk about Batman and Robin all the time, doesn't make it a good movie.

The consensus is basically that it's out of etiquette to ask someone their orientation, no matter the circumstances. I don't particularly agree with the consensus, I like when people ask me. Though I have to say I very very rarely get asked, most of the time I have to spell it out.

@bonifidehustla: Waid's run isn't like the TV show, which is gritty and very violent. Waid realized that many writers in the past have done those types of stories for Matt and that they would be much better at it than he would. So instead he decided to take the character somewhat back to his roots, where he was more of a swashbuckler. The run still deals with mature topics, and is well written despite what the droves of haters on this website would tell you, but the tone/mood is different than a lot of other modern Daredevil material.

I'm not a "hater". I even said i was a minority on disliking Waid's Daredevil.

I'm not exaggerating when I say I've read every Daredevil comic (Marvel Unlimited) and the darker themes have become synonymous with the character. Along with Cyclops and Iron Fist Daredevil has been one of my favorite characters for years, and I personally don't like the departure.

Moving him to San Francisco and making his identity and powers public knowledge isn't taking him to "his roots" its creating a new avenue for the character. Waid is writing Daredevil more like Spider-Man than anything else and that's not the book I'm interested in when I pick up my comics.

All I said is I want the status quo to return. I can understand how other people might like the more light-hearted stuff and that's their prerogative. To me, it doesn't matter since the universe is rebooting/refreshing soon.

This invalidates your whole argument. You're just believing the propaganda that the Waid haters in the DD discussion thread push because they want the title to be hyper grimdark. And I've read the Miller DD run, it really isn't much different than Waid's. The only thing different about Waid's run is that Matt is actively trying to be happy and to turn his life around. The message is uplifting, and that's what turns of Daredevil fans who like the character because he wallows.

EDIT: it's also important to note that Waid wasn't the first writer to reveal Daredevil's identity. Him coming out was a natural progression of what other writers already decided.
