    We should be "The Rebels". I think that would be good.

    My vote went for smarter than Trekkies . Just for the sake of the old cliché that we hate Trekkies ...
    Well, I hate Star Trek. It's lame. But of course, I can't judge the people who like it based on just that knowledge ...

    I voted for "forcies" but I like Jedites too. What about The Secret Society of Silent Bob?

    My friends and I are called Star Wars Freaks. :) We take it as a compliment...there is nothing wrong with being a Freak.

    How about normal?

    Because, let's face it... Star Trek is fake.

    And Star Wars? Well... that's history. It happened

    [hl=black]a long time ago... in a galaxy far, far away[/hl]. :D

    So it's not our history... so what?

    How about "people that are so bored when they aren't watching a Star Wars movie that they sit around all day posting messages on Star Wars message boards"?

    Good one ledlevee. I think True smart people are out saving the environment or somthing, not posting on these boards.

    I prefer lords of the Dance.

    In Japan the term would be Otaku, the extreme polite form of the word 'you', which has come to mean anyone who is obsessed beyond the point of reason. However in Western culture, that word applies strictly to anime fans. So I'm either a Warsie or a SW Otaku.

    How about "Bantha fodder".

    The truth is It doesn't really matter, as long as you are happy.
