Suggestion: Good Is Not Soft get usage counts

May I suggest panel three of this strip from Freefall? Max really does nail the trope in his small speech, and Sam's setup is all the context required.

First of all, don't put spaces in the article title. Write it as it is in the URL. Secondly, it is ALL text. A Wall of Text at that. Nobody wants to read all that. It could just add easily be a quote. Thirdly, a good image doesn't need justification. If you have to explain it, it's probably not that great.
Image Source. Please update whenever an image is changed.

Pardon, but that is just text.

Yeah, that falls squarely into "might as well be a page quote" territory.
In that "image", the graphics are irrelevant.

Gonna have to veto as well. We need something that the image alone clearly demonstrates. There was a previous thread where you can see how hard it is to put an image to the trope, but please, if you have an idea then we want to know. Something like Shepard showing how it's done that may have been missed perhaps? Someone who is clearly good or nice acting particularly vicious ([Superman might be a good option?) Another example we may be overlooking?
The mark of a good story means not feeling like The Angry Video Game Nerd hearing it.

Clock's up; locking for inactivity. No action is to be taken based on this thread.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
