Undoubtedly in poor taste.



And I love it.
For as much as some people claim to hate what Star Wars has become, they sure seem incapable of shutting up about it.

when I first posted the joke I just thought I was being funny, but I now realize that I was stooping to Jimbo's level. So I have erased it. I'm sorry.

no need to stoop to his level.

No such luck. He was merely booted due to excessive hate mongering.

Oh ok, that's better. Because killing is wrong, m'kay?

No he's not dead, but he is 'no longer with us'.

I'll admit that I got t'd off by his intolerance. I still have trouble believing that such intolerance still exists. And then people like Jimbo remind me of it. However I will miss the devil's advocate stance he took. Once in a while, he did hit on a nugget of useful pondering that would make you think. De vez en cuando...

Jay, you did the right thing. Better to be more harmonious than allow the ire build up to a virtual overflow.

If he were simply a disagreeable prick who loved to tweak the noses of SE haters, he'd still be around. He provided valid points at times and served as a foil to the predominantly anti-SE group we have here. That's why he was allowed to stay for so long, despite the constant calls for his removal from other members. He added flavor to our discussions, and that will be missed.

Too bad he had to spoil it with his bigotry.

I'm certain that others will rise to the challenge of stimulating debate, and in much more intelligent ways, as well.

Princess Leia: I happen to like nice men.
Han Solo: I'm a nice man.

I kind of liked Jimbo, even though he subscribed to the "any attention is good attention" school of thought. It's just too bad he had to resort to classless comments to get that attention.

We can certainly hold out hope.

you know that really sucks that he got booted, personally i really liked him. and you cant expect a guy to be very friendly to you once you have made a thread to talk about booting him. i feel he got a bad rap yes it stuff in the lack of humanity thread was bad and i feel that should have been his temporary ban not when you guys started complaining about him in that thread. i think that all of you that started arguements with him are just a guilty as he was you and now that he has been banned this forum will be a little less interesting. hope your all very pleased with yourselves.

And I agree with Shimraa. Half the reason Jimbo said stupid crap was just to get a reaction.

Yep, it was all about shock value.

Yes, but what is the purpose of gay bashing in a Star Wars forum? If he was posting at neonaziskinheads.com, I could understand it. But he's at a Star Wars forum and he's being a bigoted jackass. It's completely uncalled for. And don't say he was provoked. Nothing that was said to him would reasonably result in a violent outburst against homosexuality and the accusing of others on this forum of being gay.

I miss out on the Star Wars discourse with Jimbo, too. He was a good counterpoint. But he needs to learn how to do it without getting mean spirited. If it was a formal debate and he pulled that kind of crap, he would have been automatically booted.
