I just started reading at and to be honest I have NOOOOOO idea what is going on or the point to it, its just soooo stupid but oddly awesome and I'm a little obessed with it, I think it's because I feel like I connect with the odd characters (I've only met John, Rose and just met Dave so far) But when I read it I type different like;
I don't know why. why? E____E Birdie go bye bye oh heck not again. COMPUTER WHAT WAIT STAPH *takes sword and slices it*

Personally,I really like it. I have no problem with anyone who dislikes it. It took me 3 tries to get past act one. I just can't stand many of the fans. Especially the ones you see fan-girling over karkat and gamzee. You know, the ones that can't name a single plot point in acts 1-4 to save their lives.
I am kind of obsessed with it.............I admit its a flawed work, its very hard to get into, the pacing of the comic as a whole is very poorly planned out, and some things are sloppier than others...........DOESN'T STOP ME FROM LOVING ALL THE GREAT CONCEPTS AND CHARACTERS THOUGH
I read it for a while after seeing fanart of it everywhere, but I don't quite understand the appeal. Same as ~MaceRider said, once the material was really getting influenced by the fans, it lost a lot for me. I understand wanting to keep your fans happy, but...

Out of curiosity, what made you feel like it was getting influenced by fans?
This is a very confusing comment for me, since the first couple of acts were literally fueled by fan suggestions (since it was going off the format of a forum adventure), and then the author stopped taking suggestions once the story got a solid direction. You'd think it would give off the opposite impression.
I stopped reading it a long time ago. Problem Sleuth was pretty cool, but I just stopped caring when it became obvious that Hussy is just pulling shit out of his ass in order to satiate the fanbase.
P.S. Before someone gets on my ass for being a hater or some shit - I fuckin' cosplayed Karkat and am planning one more HS-themed cosplay. Homestuck cosplay is pretty lame as a whole, though. Call me a hypocrite.
I started right from the first page and went from there until around the start of act 3, in which I was too angry to continue.
And before you say it, I know it's act 4 where it apparently gets good. But from what I could see, it still has the elements that annoyed the fuck outa me in there, and I can never bring myself to skip parts of a series, no matter how awful.
