Dear sweet lord, this is a very sad day. The original petition is ridiculous IMO, why should Lucas have to conform his view of characters he created himself, ideas he came up with to what someone else wrote in the meantime. Even Piell was his character. The Mandalorians were something he came up with. It's his universe and no one should have been in doubt ever since Jango Fett shook up events that anything that was written could be overwritten. Hell, he said so way back when Heir to the Empire came out. Then the forcecast rant was the usual over the top rantiness. That's why we listen. They never said that GL was always perfect, but they defended his right to his creation. Yes, they got a bit too ranty and personal, but when you know that a presenter has a certain bias then if you keep on listening then you will see that bias again and again. But the response from the petition was vastly more smug and insulting. The one thing I truly hate is people who start attacking how other people argue - whilst doing exactly the same things themselves, personally attacking someone whilst simultaneously complaining about personal attacks in a comment. And, to be frank, how many people had ever really heard the word historicity before this petition? Sometimes it's better to use simpler words because the complex ones don't really have much meaning to a large chunk of your audience.
