I'll take responsibility to that I suppose, but only due to my ignorance of the unfortunate domestic politics of this forum. Honestly I didn't realize that stating my opinion, even to the extent I did, was in any way an insult to any faction of people.. Im just guessing here, but I suspect that had I said the space battle in ROTS is better than anything in TPM (which I also, incidentally, believe to be true) it wouldn't have been viewed as inflammatory. But to clarify my statement, I love OT! Saw them all at the theater and was as militant about them as any other fan from that era. But I truly believe in matters of special effects the PT (esp ep5 & 6) are just superior. That's not a jab at any fan or even the makers of the OT, just a reality of technological advances and finely honed skills that were utilized to their fullest extent by every arm of the Lucas empire - which had 20+ years of movie making expertize behind them since the OT. In 1977, they were pioneers, pulling amazing things off by the seat of their pants. In 2005, they were grand masters of an art.
