Eh, a little?

If I was to do it over again, I probably would have toned down MB's sexism (or talked around it more rather than just letting him be crude). And while the entire idea of WikiBoy is that his suffering and abuse is the joke, that's a joke I probably wouldn't be telling today. (Though I suppose the running gags around Klutz - the guy in the 8foldverse with the bad luck powers that can't catch a break - derives from the same Charlie Brown punching bag place, though it's gentler and less dependent on others being cruel.)

But hey, the spectacle of these assorted easily-distracted goofballs absolutely failing to accomplish their mission gave me a few chuckles fourteen flipping years later, as did the complete lack of any kind of real plot.

Would I do it differently now? Sure. Do I wish I hadn't done it, as was the case with number ten? Nah, it's fine. :-)
