    Good God, this thread is the epitome of "much ado about nothing."

    This thread really, really does suck.

    I, like the guy above me, have been reading the boards for ages but never felt the need to post because:
    1. all that needed to be talked about was already there,

    and

    2. There have been numerous times when I've seen some poor kid get nailed to the wall because he had a question that was already answered back on page 4,385...I felt that why bother posting a topic if your just going to get slammed by somebody with attitude about previous posts...

    N00bZ deserve the same amount of respect that was given to YOU when YOU were a N00b, so please, just have some patience with them. Afterall, they're here for the same reason we are right?

    As for trolls....let the ADMINS deal with them. Fighting with them just gets them off, so what's the point?

    I think this has been needed for some time....but I am going to miss the POOP.

    Hey Jasman,

    Great message... I post about as often as O.J. shows up on my tv for doing something wrong these days.. but I've been reading theforce.net and it's forums since early 1999 (use to be known as sidestep on the old board, damn ya think I could remember the password eh??)

    Anyway.. with episode II heating up I have come back here to read all the good tid bits on the next flick and have been dismayed to see the actions of some of the members.. It just seems that some people get their kicks with immature behavior.

    I'm glad to see that you and the admins of this site have notice and are working to correct this action.

    Does this mean I don't have a right to defend myself? :D" --Vaderbait



    Here are a couple of funny quotes that apply to the situation: "Never argue with an idiot. People on the sidelines can't tell the difference."

    "Arguing on the Internet is like participating in the Special Olympics. Even if you win, you're still retarded."

    So do trolls returning under new usernames. Bye-bye! [face_devil]

    I agree with jas completely on this. The age-old rule of thumb "if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all" applies. By posting excessively in redundant/offtopic/trolling threads, you just "up" them. If it's a well-meaning newbie, point him in the right direction with a link. If it's a troll, PM an online mod and don't give him the attention he so badly desires.

    Thank you for your cooperation on this, guys! :)

    Can't we have it both ways? Be nice to each other AND have poop and cats and stuff? Everybody poops, right?

    Is posting just one [face_plain] or sarcastic comment posting excessively? I mean a trolls thread is gonna get locked and deleted anyway.

    Well, this board really is being run by dinghy broads.

    EDIT: No, I'm not saying the broads are dirty. Don't blame me, it was Artie Lange's catchphrase.

    Buh-bye again, Arse ... nal.


    Registered another sock right after being banned. I guess he didn't learn much in the past 3 years. Oh, well.

    okay i have read all the posts here and have a few questions.
    1. Like [was it] darthomer said what is the point of the registerde date? if we did away with this no one would know a new member from an old member. This would eliminate the taunts and bashing. Am i right?

    2. We are completely done with the cats, lock pics, and this thread is for me to poop on thing?

    3. No there is no three right now. if i think of it ill edit later.
    Edit:
    3. Can i get a definition of what exactly flaming and spamming is?

    This has been a long time coming, this
    THREAD is long overdue. I mean who
    IS anyone to bash on a newbie? And
    for those who do, you won't catch
    ME giving you any respect. Kudos
    to the Admins for finally getting rid of
    POOP in our vocabulary. now let's get
    ON with discussing this great movie!!!

    YOTS, if you really want to become a mod, you're going about it all wrong.

    In regards to the topic itself, I fully support the campaign against all poop and cat jokes, but I hope we can still reply to threads with at least a little sarcasm, as long as it isn't too harsh.

    It's part of what makes this forum so enjoyable.

    so, are you saying that if I used me little [image=http://www.cse.msu.edu/~shailesh/threadlock.jpg] in a humorous way, not malicious, but just being funny, I'll be banned???
