    BUUUT, seriously now...to prevent the lockage of this thread or suchlike, there were some very cogent points raised on the first page. Personally, I've had an experience or three of late with several of the so-called "canonists" over at the AotC board, and 'twould be most wonderful to smooth some of these feathers before heads begin rolling on both sides.

    Granted, most of 'em support George Lucas and his filmmaking acumen, but dare to even mention an "Expanded Universe" work in the film forum -- Ghu forbid -- and verily they doth strike with flaming petards. "Open-mindedness" is what might best be termed an "inoperative" adjective; one so at odds with reality in these areas that it might as well be elided.

    This new proclamation from parts on high might signal a new sea-change in official policy, and might engender a Reaganesque trickle-down effect upon the mindsets of some of the canonist Nazis, as one esteemed fellow here designated them. Certainly, the snippet should be brought to their collective scrutinies ere long.

    EDIT: Hmpf. Alright. For olden times' sake, here's just one more chortle :D --

    "Luke, at that speed, do you think you'll be able to pull out in time?"

    The whole canon debate makes me laugh. Accept what you want.

    So simple. :(

    Precisely.

    Unfortunately, there are those who worship Lucas like he's some sort of deity.

    EDIT: Spelling

    I think you meant deity. Lucas probably isn't that much into dieting.

    And there are those who worship the whole saga like its really important or something.

    ... me included.

    Still.

    Here's the funny thing about canonists...they don't think clearly. If I defend the EU in there, or say why I and others like it, they say this : "The EU is NOT canon."

    Now tell me this...In saying why I and others like the EU, where did I say it's canon? Or if I talk about it in a thread that drifted off course to some other subject, they tell me to go off to the forums where it's accepted. WTF? And I suppose talking about Salacious Crumb's origins is just as important in a spoiler forum about AotC?

    They're all a bunch of 'tards who need to be slapped around. I can't wait to see them lining up next February to buy The Approaching Storm.

    By what I am aware of, no one on our "side" has ever said EU is canon over there in Oz. Then they smack us with their canon rubrick.

    Star Wars is a fictitious universe. Why should anyone get so worked-up over what really "happened" in a made-up world? The reason for this is the fact that these obsessed fanboys have read so much mythological mumbo-jumbo into the saga that they have turned it into a religion.

    Yes. They think that anything George Lucas didn't write is rubbish. Then when Lucas sticks in Jar Jar, midi-chlorians and young Padawans into the films, they start crying for their mommies.

    Of course it doesn't help much that Lucas has spewed so much mytho-babble over the years, giving these people the material with which to build their shrines.

    We (Sturm) quoted the Gamer 6 quote. I guess he just threw it out, without saying anything. But I can see why they thought we were using it as some form of proof or something.

    Its all conflicting offical words. So, screw it and just enjoy the story.

    Sturm: Or if I talk about it in a thread that drifted off course...

    You have to watch those threads that drift off course.
