What I mean is, if one side can argue its position, then surely the other side should be allowed to. They're allowed to, but I still don't understand how anyone could justify defending a group of thugs who tortured an innocent woman to death for the purpose of "testing her will". And, funnily enough, I have NEVER, NOT ONCE brought up an individuals personal feelings towards a characater as a means of countering their argument. That doesn't mean there is something wrong with doing so. As far as any so-called warnings by the mods, if I have gotten any, it would be due to bias against Anakin on TF.N, and if I get banned, it will be because someone wants me to leave everyone alone in their Anakin-bashing. I don't allow that sort of thing towards any character--Anakin, Obi-Wan, Mara Jade, anyone (not even the Tuskens, because since there is no bashing of Anakin, there is no need to call the Tuskens thugs in order to defend Anakin)--on the message board that I run, and I think it's sad that it's allowed here. I've seen one person compare them (sort of) to Native Americans, but even that person didn't say that the Tuskens did nothing wrong The Native Americans did nothing wrong. Therefore, if the Tuskens are like the Native Americans, the Tuskens did nothing wrong. JohnWilliams: But I cannot understand why you would think it's understandable to atone for the death of innocents by killing more innocents. Most of the Tuskens in the camp were not innocent. My problem isn't with people saying that Anakin killing the women and children was wrong--my problem is with people who say "Anakin killed children," and by doing so, purposely leave out the men who murdered his mother and make it sound like he is another Richard Davis who kidnapped Polly Klaas. Anakin got angry and lost control. I think people really need to hold off judgment until their own mothers have been tortured to death and they know exactly what they would do. I don't think so much of myself that I feel comfortable saying I wouldn't do the same thing Anakin did.
