Dilbert also had a flat tie in one of the comics with Antina, if I recall. But I think that was just a mistake. Piepants 11:52, 14 November 2007 (UTC)Piepants
Fair use rationale for Image:Dilbert icon.PNG
Image:Dilbert icon.PNG is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.
Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.
If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.
"Dilmom"? "Mombert"? Not in the last seven years, at least.
I removed the following sentence about Dilbert's mother: "She is frequently referred to as "Dilmom", or "Mombert"." I have been reading every single Dilbert strip, like this: I read all of 2008 from the beginning, then went back to 01/01/07 and went forward, then back to 01/01/06 and went forward, etc. I am currently in August of 2001, and I haven't seen "Dilmom" or "Mombert" once! Therefore, it is not correct to say she "is frequently" referred to by those names, if it hasn't happened once in the last seven years. I'll be interested to see if I ever encounter the name, as I kinda suspect it was made up by fans as a reference nickname. For the longest time, the article read "She is frequently referred to as "Dilmom".", then eventually somebody added the "or "Mombert"." Honestly, "Mombert" at least fits in with Scott Adams's style (Dogbert, Catbert, Ratbert, etc.) . . . but "Dilmom"? Can anybody attest to this ever happening? Have you ever seen her called either of these names in the strip?
Oh, and by the way: NO, what I'm doing is not "original research"; I have simply been looking for verification of a factual claim, and have found none. That's not "research". --126.96.36.199 (talk) 20:05, 9 October 2008 (UTC)
Dilbert on the Autism Spectrum?
"He is a white collar office worker who has a rare medical condition characterized by an extreme intuition about all things mechanical and electrical (and utter social ineptitude), an idea that an animated television episode explored and is titled "The Knack"."
The above definitely sounds he has Asperger syndrome. Combine that with this comic from 2009 and it definitely seems like it. What are your thoughts?
- Unless the author came out and stated it, it would be unsourced original research. However, to comment on your point, you obviously don't spend much time around engineers - either that or Aspergers is VASTLY under diagnosed - because I've known many engineers just like Dilbert.
