Didn't sign it myself but I did tell a friend about the website and he signed it. No I don't really care the secret is to not give a rats ass. I agree with some sentiments here I wouldn't mind Lucas releasing the originals. I just arguing against those who think the prequals are inferior to originals or think that Lucas owes them something.


this was indeed posted by jimbo and i dont see why he should have any right to use this forum if he is not going to support our cause!

Basically i want to know what the rest of you think.

Come on. He is good for a laugh. And truthfully I've never even seen the non SE version of the OT.

It isn't like *everyone* here hates the SE.

the non-SE version of the OT is quite worth watching...

this is the Off-Topic section and besides, he is not supporting our cause, but he is making his own statements about the OT and the SE, as well as the PT...

Guys, we sometimes need such jimbos, otherwise we'd be forced to quarrel among ourselves and that's bad... yet with jimbo on the board we always know where to spill our negative emotions

See? I'm a nice guy! OK men, load the weapons...
I saw the original theatrical release of the Old Trilogy on the big screen and I'm proud of it...
How did I accomplish that (considering my age) is my secret...

I also think he can be quite annoying, especially with his language, but since he plays the devil's advocate on this forum, banning him would mean that we are not ready to accept different opinions and point of views. And hey, we are the majority here anyway so why feel threatened?

Although I think he should at least have signed the petition...

First of all I don't hate the original trilogy. I just like the Special Editions more. Also banning someone for having different opinions as you makes you sound like the prick. I am only rude to those who are rude to me. The rats ass line is a bender joke that I found funny. For any discussion to be good it requires individuels like me with an opposing view.

I partially agree with Jimbo, and I belive we need even more people who love the SE here, so we can properly discuss this hearing the two sides of it, people who dislike it and people who like it. If you guys know someone who loves the SE more than the original, bring them here! That's right! We need to hear from them too.

But if such person, no matter what side he is, gets annoying, or insults other forum members, than we have to avaliate if that person should remain here, not because of his opinion on the SE thing, but because of his acts. And so far, I haven't seen Jimbo do anything really offensive. So, my answer is no, do not bann him. A person should get VERY annoying to deserve being banned.

If they were old enough to masturbate more fans of the SE would be here.

what im saying is that you should get behind our cause no matter what you want... dont you see whats going on here?

the man is trying to decide for us what version we should see.... what if he said the SE no longer exist and only the originals did... i bet you you'd be signing a petition so fast you wouldnt know what hit you....

but i guess you dont care that people are beginning to make all our decisions for us...
what we should see on tv and hear on radio with this whole FCC thing is just getting out of control...
and now they are telling us what to buy...
well you make your own decision... but i find it very selfish of you to come on here and try to befriend people who you wont even support....

and you call yourself a fan??
are you really?

Who is making a decision for who?

And free speach is a good thing, I belive. We should never bann someone for liking the SE, or for saying "I loved when Greedo shot first", thats their opinions. As I said before, opinions are like clocks and watches, everyone belive his own watch/opinion is correct, but no one truly is, it's impossible , "even for a computer" (got the joke?). What are we discussing here, anyway? The SE's? So let's hear it from people who enjoyed it, and dosen't sign the petition. Let's hear both sides.

but why should a star wars fan not want the original release of Star Wars... this is beyond which is better now...
how will these movies be preserved??

i dont mind if people like the SE because i have said myself that i liked certain aspects of them but still want the originals... for comparison sake... how are you ever going to see how the effects advanced if you dont have the originals...

I would probably be happy if Lucas were to annouce tomarrow the originals are coming to DVD. It will give people what they want. Still I prefer the Special Editions and don't really mind what Lucas is currently doing. I am a fan. I grew up with these movies. I love three of them Attack of the Clones, The Empire Strikes Back, and A New Hope and like two of them The Phantom Menace, Return of the Jedi. I guess its I am really against prequal haters not the original versions. I find that those who prefer the original versions are prequal haters and those who prefer the Special Editions are prequal likers. I am sick to death of people bashing Attack of the Clones. It is so damn great.

I wouldn't go as far as to ban Jimbo.

He can make some good points, when he isn't telling us "fuck you" or "your an asshole" or something equally stupid.


But most of the time, he's just posting crap. but don't ban him for it.
He's kinda funny.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

I DON'T KNOW! But could you at least consider the possibility that some fans might prefer the SE? There are people who enjoy having sex while being burned with candles and beaten in the face with a baseball bat, so why couldn't there be a SW fan who actually enjoyed the SE? No matter how horrible you belive something is, there will be someone who likes it...

Plenty of people like the Special Editions. They made big at the box office. All my friend prefer um.

Did it ever occur to you that most of the people who saw the SE fans went simply to see the movies in the theatre at all?

And if they only saw it once, it've been their first time seeing the SE anyway!


And NONE of my friends prefer them.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.
