R.I.P. Jimbo................and May The Force Be With You...............Always!!!!

It is days like this that I bow my head, light a smoke, and consider the endless ways in which humanity itself needs a good arse-kicking....so many people, not enough respect for one another. I also consider places where I have found myself feeling quite at home and this is one of them. Thanks for the memories Jimbo, I do hope that **.com doesn't eat you alive.......peace be with you.......you sarcastic, funny, smellin of poodoo, disgusted at life, sack of devil's advocate you!!!!

Your candor will be missed........

Long Live "Everything" Star Wars

He wasn't *that* bad, except (as you said) his biggotry.

I mean, I don't approve of homosexuality either but he was personally insulting a gay man! That's sick.

All in all, I'm glad he's gone.



BUSH CHENEY '04 You KNOW they're gettin re-elected.

I guess we have different tastes in people. I will say I liked the fact that he had guts enough to state his opinions on Star Wars when he knew most would disagree. I just think he should have been more civil and less rude in doing so.

he was rude and offensive long before that thread was made. That's why the thread was made

except, that was not first time he offended people and gay bashed. And the fact is the he didn't learn his lesson the 1st time he was banned and I doubt that if this was the first time he was banned, that he would have learned his lesson this time either.

well I'm sorry if you feel that way. I don't see how we are all as guilty as he is . To me if someone says somthing that pisses me off, I have the right to say so. And I have the right to tell him why I think he is wrong. Maybe some of the times we were rude to him, but its hard to care about wheither or not you offend him if he has already offended you. Most of the time we didn't start the arguments, he did. No one forced him to gay bash , no one forced him to be rude and arrogant. Most of the people on this forum want to have polite, respectful discourse even on subjects when we disagree. Jimbo didn't want that and/or wasn't mature enough to do that. That is why a lot of people disliked him and wanted him gone. And this is not about his views on Star Wars. If it were, we would be asking Jay to ban anyone that liked the SE OT and loved the PT. I think I speak for everyone here when I say, we don't want that, and Jay would never do that. It's not his views that were the problem it is how he expressed his views.
We only offended, were rude, and insulted him after he did the same to us. I think it was self defense.

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


And why the hell should we have to put up with that crap? IMO we don't need that kind of nonsense here. Jay and everyone else tried to tell him to stop, but he wouldn't listen so Jay was forced to get rid of him.



I agree that his devils advocate stance will be missed. And maybe this forum will be a little more boring without him. But if you ask me, we are better off without such an arrogant, ignorant, rude, inmature, bigoted little prick. Sorry, its just how I feel.

~sigh~ Well, I'm not sure what to say.

After this last go 'round, I wasn't going to come back. I had had my fill. Then I thought about it and decided that one person wasn't going to ruin this site for me. I just wasn't going to give him the satisfaction of just crawling back into the woodwork.

Warbler, I'm staying right here. This site is way too cool for me to abandon. I did take the weekend and yesterday to think it over. Nope, like I said, I wasn't going to crawl back into the woodwork. I'm here to stay.

So is it permanent this time?

I'm tempted to say he wouldn't come back after being banned twice, even if Jay un-banned him tommorrow. But considering it is Jimbo of whom I speak... He just might.

Whatever do you mean? *cough*StarWars.com*cough*

Jimbo usually made any argument he made invalid by bringing his crap into it (like the gay bashing). However, he's the only one I've ever gotten into heated debates with here...shame

Hope you said your goodbyes, because jimbo won't be posting here anymore.

So what is everyone's predictions on what name he'll register as again?

(I mean, c'mon... you know he's gonna)

I'm sure Jay has ways of making sure that doesn't happen.

Yeah, an IP ban. However, if he did return it'd probably be HIO LUCAS MEIN FURHER. I don't know.

So it is that we shall lose jimbo and win Luke Skywalker. Sounds like a good trade. Having been here the short period that I have, I did not know jimbo before his temp ban. It is good to have differing opinions on a forum, but I got the idea that jimbo didn't view his as such. How often did he qoute his views as perpetual fact? How often did he not give one crumb of respect to someone who differs from him. Having a difference of opinion with jimbo, expecting to come away with something was like throwing water ballons at a brick wall, expecting the wall to give. Jimbo was good for angering up the blood, but I don't mourn the loss of someone whom gives no one else credit.

Jimbo, godspeed on your journey to find a new haven for your bigotry.Next time, find a board where more than one person agrees with you. You may want to view other opinions, but remember, they are just as valid as yours. Give your opinion while accepting others, and you'll get along fine. That is my advice to you if you are reading this.

As for this forum, a dark chapter has closed, and, given how he was here, I say, "Good riddence to bad rubbish". Don't assume he can't come back. I have three computers in my home. Each one has a unique IP address.

lol
perfect name for him

thx for your kind words Klingon_Jedi


what im thinking is that he may visit for one final freak out...
im guessing something along the lines of
"f**k you guys. these boards suck! your all losers kinda thing"
i've seen so many people do that on forums after a banning...
kinda pathetic really... i mean what are you proving??

Personally, I never had a problem with his opinions on SW. I mean, disagreement is healthy, and it promoted thought on more than one occassion.
However, the possible benefit was far outweighed by his ignorance, crassness, and general lack of respect for others. I also kind of hold him accountable for the degradation of the political debate thread.

Variety is the spice of life, but I hardly think that Jimbo was flavouring things around here more than he was making them sour. (Sorry for that )
His oppostion on things SW related will be missed...but there are others now on the board that have his views, and perhaps they will become more pronounced in his absence. I have to agree most with Klingon Jedi, when he said
