    Hey Ia are you a Brit? They spell criticize with a 'S'. Anywho... who criticizes what? You gotta be more specific dear when you are refering to a person, k. Oh... MTFBWY

    oh yeah, and ryan-w sucks,

    either I missed something or that was way out of left field

    ryan weiber is a great guy. he helps anyone no matter how simple the task or stupid the question. he makes 2D effects so simple for people with his tutorials at www.ryan-w.com. he has done so much for the fanfilm community, I don't understand how he can suck. :confused:

    Man, the deficit of attention strikes again: There's been no full acknowledging of the meeting time and place (remember the bit about dinner?) so the info stands: the September Meeting is set for Sunday, 14 September at 2pm in the Main Library. Maybe we'll have dinner afterwards. I'll arrange for the room at the library.

    ps: I'm not British, but those who are, that know how to spell, spell criticize, the same as we do in the States. Maybe your thinking of words like licence (license).

    Sorry- you are absolutely wrong on this. The British spell criticize like Ia spelled it- critisize. Before jumping in and trying to disprove something- research it first. I've read enough British publications to recognize and remember how they spell certain words I encourage you to check this out and you will see for yourself. We assume they spell all English words like we do.. but as you already know- they don't.

    Absolutely wrong, huh, Ruckus? It happens I did research it because it sounded incorrect to me. I checked 4 dictionary sites and one of my own home dictionaries. I specifically searched for British spelling differences on Google, too. So, since you are positive you are right (so much that you'd school me, and words are sort of my thing), can you show me one trustworthy usage of the word critisize?Forum postings from people who can't spell don't count. Thanks. Always good to learn from someone who has read enough British publications.

    Well I can't help the ignorant. Just go on Yahoo and type critisize- and see what ya get. Were these British dictionary sites or American ones? Cause ya know if you were looking at American Dictionary spellings- how do think they will spell it? Anyways since I know you are apparently a genius and really did spectacular research like you claimed- shoddy and lazy- I doubt ya did- go to this site and wash some of the ignorance off yourself.

    [link=http://www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:List_of_common_misspellings]Wikipedia[/link]

    p.s.- look up the word jackass while you're at too. Always good to be schooled by a lazy punk.

    Wow, Ruckus, that's quite a flame. I'm trying to decide whether you're attempting to bait me by the name calling, or if this is just a joke (the Wikipedia link in your post goes to a page that says "critisize" is a common misspelling). I took your advice and looked it up on Yahoo and got similar results to Google- a lot of forums by people who misspelled it. Anyhow, hope you're not as angry as you sound.

    To everybody else, sorry for all this fluff. If anybody has anything to say about the September Meeting, please list it below.

    That was part of it yes- it also was showing the American and British differences in spelling words- but this is getting quite lame- whatever- if your ego needs inflating- then I hope you have garnered it.

    Yeah I threw some little punk down the stairs after I went into a Wookie berserker rage! Then I smashed someone's head threw a window and then smashed a chair over them. Then I set the study room on fire and ran away!

    What do you think?

    How about we sit back and think about how pathetic our lives are and what we could be accomplishing instead of sitting here in front of our computers writing these stupid posts?

    Good Idea, huh?

    I guess Brandon and I will attend the next meeting...

    Woah! Everyone, let's just calm down and remember one key thing: you can never be too harsh.

    Some of us prefer the Dark Side, while others prefer the Light Side (though, true, it was never called the "light side," but you get the point).

    Signed,

    Darth Harsh

    Such Anger! Such Language! Even I would never say sucka thing like that. If Brandon was PW'd, he would tell us, do you really think he cares what we think? And besides, him and stef always come to the meetings. Lats all just sit back, heat up some act II popcorn, grab a beer, and pop in ESB...
