    It was difficult, but we prevailed.

    I wouldn't be too hasty in taking credit for shutting the thread down, but I will say "Well Done" for getting some bashers to understand our POV.

    I wonder if it was shut down because the bashers resorted to petty, childish insults to try and run us off. In that way, we would be indirectly respsonsible.

    I guess that's closer to the point, Red 9. One of the bashers is on my list of people who like me now. That's a good example of what we accomplished.

    Yes, make your points in a logical and calm way, and even EU Bashers will be forced to at least credit that you too have a right to an opinion. At least the sane ones.

    The KEY to victory in our crusade is this:

    If you stay calm and decent in your debate, no matter HOW BAD the opposition gets (or how bad they are foaming at the mouth), you effectively (to use an analogy) put up a little black hole (like a dovin basal does) that eats up their antagonism.

    Throughout your missions the focus should be INCREASING UNDERSTANDING between us and them, by use of effective and calm debate. THEY may get angry at first, but by US not being antagonistic in return, they end up punching at air, which of course is a losing battle - for them.

    There is a strong possability that Vertical will delete the "Great Scene from Exploited Universe..." thread.

    As a work of fiction, I support it being restarted in the FanFiction forum where we can take time out to laugh at the little things in the EU that might bug us, like Waru, Dzym, etc. It is a thread that should not be in the preqel forum, but does not need to be deleted. At the core, it is a light-hearted, satirical look at the EU as a whole.

    That being said, if anyone has any more targets, my weapons are primed.

    Black Lead out.

    I bet that we end up being so feared that no one would dare say anything bad about the EU and then we won't be needed... OK bad thought

    On a note about "Great Scene..." Holliday posted this at one point:

    "Finally on a serious note (the only serious note you'll find in this thread, I assure you;) I've been feeling a little bit............guilty about this whole thing...

    It's not what you think--I don't feel guilty about offending the EU fans (that's kind of the point). It's just this: I'm aware that this isn't exactly the appropriate forum for these stories."

    I found that tidbit rather interesting.

    Red 9 to all wings:

    ALERT! ALERT! ALERT!

    THE EXPLOITED UNIVERSE THREAD IS UNDER ATTACK FROM THE ADMINS!!!!

    It would go VERY far in the minds of EU Bashers if some of the squadron come to it's defense!

    Besides, it's funny as ----!

    I'm going in. Cover me!

    Jedi Merkurian:

    Though the thread IS funny, the fact remains that, by Holliday's own admission, the thread was INTENDED to bash the EU. We have done them a favor by making it a NO-FIRE-ZONE. But we'd be contradicting ourselves to SUPPORT it AS A SQUADRON.

    But on a personal level, you can support it if you want. Just don't make it a 'squadron' thing.

    *Copy, Red Leader*

    Besides, it doesn't look like it's going to be deleted, just moved to FanFic (I hope) where it belongs.

    [a pitch-black E-wing screams out of the stars and falls into formation alongside the ships of EU Squadron...]

    Could I come in?

    Just to prove my keenness, can I suggest that someone posts a list of active threads we're fighting in every few days?

    And btw (belatedly) Dev, you were complaning about the squadron's lack of authors. Had you noticed who Black 12 is?-)

    LOL!! Find one of his posts and click on his name. I can't believe you didn't notice...

    On a purely egocentric note - I'm not sure whether I lost the question when I killed my double-post, or whether the maintainer removed it - could I (eager grin) be Gold Leader rather than Black 11?

    If not, no worries... and where's the fight?

    Oh I have to join. Can I fill in somewhere? If not I want to be Gold 2.

    About Gold Squadron, how about calling it Dinner Squadron instead? (j/k)

    Black Lead here:

    Jagged_Fel: you can be Black 11

    Thrawn_McEwok: You have lead on Gold Flight


    Perhaps, since he is a civilian member of the squadron, Matthew Trias would want to be XO for Gold Flight.
