    You can bash what you like if it's relevant to the topic being discussed, obviously derailing is not normally permitted (although in the Ep VII forums I see no issue with talking about the EU since the EU may be relevant to almost all post-ROTJ discussion) and neither should insulting other posters be.

    I think it was in a EU thread and on topic. Of course, maybe she shouldn't have added a Calvin and Hobbes drawing where Calvin was dressed like Luke Skywalker and was urinating on the word "Callista" (like the decals you see on cars).

    Yep... something like that might do it.

    Pretty much. I can't speak for EP VII since I haven't been there in a while.

    No, it was resolved. I was just wondering if there was a change in TOS since it appeared to be stricter about character bashing in the past.

    I'd say we're pretty strict on images of Calvin peeing on stuff.

    Sx3 closed my "Owen Lars" thread because it was supposedly Prequel bashing, yet Anakin_Darth's thread from a few months ago wasn't? Hmmmm....

    that Owen Lars thread did seem to smack of "oooh what else can we bash about the PT, now Jar Jar has been done to death?".

    Not that it was probably your intent Garrett,

    but someone on youtube having a negative opinion on something? that's nothing new,

    And Owen was insignificant in the PT anyway and hardly (imo) warrants his own thread negative or positive.

    But that's the point here, is it not? Negative opinions of the films are as valid as postive ones. To those that say, it's just another what can we bash about the PT thread my answer would be, so what?

    Does a person not have that right here?

    And why shouldn't Garret relate his experience here, that's the point of this thread.

    normally I'd agree with that (as I have under my other account throughout this thread and others)

    but to me there is a difference between nitpicking and major negative aspects that should be disscussed.

    If we are to change things in this thread so that both positive and negative threads can co-exist, there needs to be some middle ground, I'm all for debating negative things in either trilogy IF it is a passionate grievance about a plot point or character, but allowing nitpicking threads isn't the way to convince administration of changing their opinions.

    Why is it nitpicking, because it's a minor character? Good use of minor characters can make a movie.

    Personally, I find the Lars storyline to be very problematic. It hurts the saga as a whole.

    well I concede to that point after re-reading the first post of that thread.

    To me Lars did nothing but stand there with about twolines of generic dialogue and thats it, so I consider him just a background character myself but bleh.
