Ken, you actually seem like a kind and gentle person, so let me try, just this once, to explain something...
There are many things in this world that I recognize as being wrong that I am not passionate enough about to protest. For instance, it's wrong how chicken farms treat chickens by stuffing them into tiny cages just so we can have cheap chicken nuggets. There are people protesting that, and they're right. But for me personally, there are are only so many hours in the day and I have to pick my priorities, and I have to admit I enjoy eating chicken nuggets. So if I were to see a group of people protesting about the treatment of chickens, I wouldn't join the protest and I wouldn't stop eating chicken nuggets, but I also wouldn't fight against the protesters either because I know that what they are asking for has merit. If someone came up to me when I was eating a chicken nugget and said "hey, don't you realize you're eating a tortured chicken?", I'd have to say something like "yeah, I know, it's probably wrong, I'm sorry but I don't want to deal with that right now." What I WOULDN'T do is try to convince the person that the treatment of chickens is OK, just because I like chicken nuggets, and start up a facebook page about how stupid the protesters were, just so I could feel better about my own decision to eat chicken nuggets.
I suspect you kinda fall into that camp. You too would like to see the OOT restored/preserved, but you enjoy the SEs and so it's just not a fight you're passionate about joining. That's totally fine! But where we have trouble with you, is that you try and convince us to stop fighting for it, and you tell others how stupid we are to fight for it. That's what I don't understand about the Lucas apologists. We really are on the same side as you... we love Star Wars and we want everyone to be able to enjoy it. We don't want the SE eliminated, and so we don't understand why some fans will actively resist our efforts to bring the original version back - that makes it seem that on some level you must be in favor of the originals being eliminated.
So you are free to not join our efforts and our protests... we understand that not everyone is that passionate about this specific thing. But by the same token, don't actively fight and argue against our protest - we're really all on the same side.
And Kenkraly replies with this...
"I wish some of you would stop calling star wars fans who go to websites like TFN or relbelsum.com Lucas apologists their good sources for star wars news of all of kinds. So just because we support anything GL does where called Lucas apologists?"
That says it all. Stop trying guys. Waste of time.
