Darth Justin strange in R2s link that you say you will leave me alone and then you launch a huge personal attack against me like that. And you call Lucas a hipocrate.

Not to mention none of my comments were very offensive.


That is a matter of opinion.

As for this wonderful little nugget, I'll just let it speak for itself.

I say much worse things about gays in most other places.


This isn't something to brag about. You give heterosexuals a bad name.

Quote

Do I go whine and threaten to ban people.


I wasn't threatening to ban you. I don't have the power. I simply stated that if you keep on in this manner you will end up permanently banned. Again, you just don't know when to quit. That's fine with me. Dig that grave a little deeper.

I am digging it hard. Attack of the Clones has action sequences with thousands of humans. Still plenty. Notice I keep trying to go back on topic but you keep whinning.

Yep. And you can't make one statement without taking a crack at me. Now what does that say about you?

Dark times are ahead. Jimbo, don't you dare tell me you're a Californian. R2's point is that you make jabs at him for no reason. Anyone who brags about being homophobic needs serious psychiatric help.

THAT IS ENOUGH !!!


NO MORE PERSONAL ATTACKS. THIS GOES FOR EVERYBODY HERE. YES, YOU CAN LOOK AT OTHER TOPIC THREAD AND SEE SOME PERSONAL ATTACKS ON SHIMRAA, BUT IT'S ALL IN GOOD FUN. HE KNOWS, AND SO DO WE. HE DISHES IT OUT JUST AS WELL, AND I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT THAT TYPE OF PERSONAL ATTACT. I'M TALKING ABOUT THE ONES GOING ON IN HERE. IT HAS TO STOP. NOW.

I completely agree w/ you on this subject Dayv. I told Jimbo & Darth Justin to stop in another thread -- the one about the new SW trailer -- and they just kept going. I think that Jay needs to have a talk w/ Jimbo, cause this thread is out of control, especially in the General Star Wars Discussion Forum where things remain G-rated. This kind of thing leads to what MilleniumFalcon.com says about us being phycos & what-not. Bottom line Jimbo, if u can not remain civil in a debate or a personal argument, you are NOT WANTED HERE. Please stop, we don't want someone else as hated as Nile.

Yes, but IMO, he may be setting an example for others as he posts things like he does. I suppose it isn't fair though, but Jay does need to talk to him...

Fine I am gone from this thread until you guys learn to stop getting so damn off topic.

Jimbo, you are seriously so confused.

This topic wouldn't have gone to hell if you hadn't brought your gay-bashing comments in it. Where does gay-bashing come in talking about Star Wars?

Oh, and then you have to whine about me launching a quote, "huge personal attack against me like that." Wow. See, unlike you, I can deal with homosexuals and I don't have to resort to bashing other members to fill my sad, pathetic life with some form of pleasure. No, Jimbo that would be you. Your view and respect of someone changes when you post something like you did. How can you expect anyone to take you seriously? Or for that matter, not to take offense to your post?

That's the end. Now die.

You see DJ, neither Dayv or I posted here after his little comment. That is because there was no way to do so without sending back a personal attack on him, like u did. Please refrain from being drawn into his arguments, and refer to the "Things We Hate" thread to see where these arguments get you. Now, can we please either get back on topic or call this thread DEAD? No more attacks, por favor.

I think I figured out why the characters in the prequels are so boring compared to the OT characters.

In the PT, all of the emotional catalysts are things that normal people can't relate to. Most people can't relate to being super-powerful and chosen to "bring balance" to anything. Most people can't relate to being a senator, and can't sympathise with all of Padme's day-to-day problems.

Luke on the other hand, is just an ordinary kid who dreams of doing something great. It is something people can relate to better. Everyone wants to be the hero, to get the girl--if you don't know that she's your sister. Being stuck at home with a mundane life is something that kids and adults alike can relate to. But most of us can't relate to being separated from our mothers and then finding her dying, tortured by nomads.

So it is really lack of humanity, but lack of normal people.

Why is it a dead topic? I thouht that Jay had to make it so.

What I am saying is, that despite all that Luke achieves, all that Han achieves, they still started as oridinary people. Not a fourteen year old queen-cum-senator. Not a slaveboy with amazing powers. Just a farmer and a smugler.

I get what you're saying. I wouldn't mind being a Jedi, but being Han Solo or Luke or one of the characters from the OT sounds much cooler than being any of the prequel characters (save for the Jedi, as I said).

Ok, to start, Jay does not need to declare the topic "dead," all it takes is a senior member; a few of whom have taken on the responsibility of moderating these forums. The reason for declaring any topic "dead" may result from various things, and in this case it is from us all getting too far off topic. If the posts in the thread are no longer relevent, we must make room for those that are. That being said, this thread is a...

The topic did start up again, and now you are the one off-topic posting DEAD TOPIC DO NOT POST HERE. So I ask, "Why?"
Author

The thread should stay open as long as Jimbo doesn't start "gay-bashing" again.

There is no point in leaving it dead becasue of Jimbo.

JIMBO WASN'T THE ONLY GUILTY PARTY HERE. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO START THIS TOPIC THREAD ON A CLEAN SLATE I SUGGEST STARTING IT OVER AS A NEW TOPIC THREAD. I SHOULD TELL YOU THOUGH THAT IT MUST STAY ON TOPIC.


DEAD TOPIC THREAD. DO NOT POST HERE.

Take it easy with the "dead topic" declarations guys. Nobody here has the right to shut down any thread, even if it's gone wildly off topic. I don't care how many posts you've racked up. While the guidance of long-standing members is appreciated, there are no hard and fast rules regarding thread closures.

Oh, one more thing.

Jimbo, you're done. Goodbye.
