Ok, why was that humorous topic locked? I understand if the "converstion" was headed in another direction other than the one in the title but it was all a big joke....? dark4ce, there was a time I agreed with you...now I am not sure. But I respect your opinion...maybe we can discuss this on another post I just posted. JarJar, "Would a merger of groups be beneficial then? To put it bluntly, no." well in response I will quote you "That is your opinion and not fact." "I'm not going to get into all of the why's....." Why not? Why are people sometimes afraid of having a discussion with other people who don't share their views...I used to agree with you JarJar. But nobody else did....maybe talking about it in the open might make some people realize what you think. Try it....well that discussion is for another topic. But back to topic, at first it was obvious humperdink was being silly. Part of the problem, I think is the way some responses rub some people the wrong way. It's kind of weird to tell someone that their opinion is "just an opinion" not fact, when they never said it was a fact. Yet on the same e-mail, you try to make your opinion sound like "a fact". I can see how some might not like the tone that seems to have. But then Adam jokes about having an opinion or not being allowed to give it...and what happens? The topic is locked! I know he was being silly and all but then the topic is locked. It makes his statement seem true. Like if you don't agree with certain people your topic wil be locked or you will be silenced! I am guessing this topic will eventually be locked too but oh, well...at least I got this off my chest. ALL OF US (including myself) need to get back to basics....loving Star Wars and collecting if that is how you show it!
