Ok, now that I have your attention, let me ask it a bit more politely.

Can we please stop turning the Rangers forum into a haven for accusation, angry posts, pigheadness and trollish behavior?

Thank you very much.

OnlineDude: I suppose now would not be the time to bring up the old one about the starlet who was so new to Hollywood she slept with the writer...
JMS: But that was only because she heard that in Hollywood, *everyone* screws the writer.
 
Yes. Yes we can.

Actually I'm not really aware of it. I live in the Off-Topic Forum.

But I have noticed a lot of angry folks lately. Let's all calm down and continue counting the days down until January.

I agree, lets all just take a breath and relax and see what happens in January.

I agree, it's all a bit silly getting worked up over something we haven't even seen yet to even form an informed opinion.

Thing is though there is no other Rangers news out there to talk about so that leaves the review.

In another thread, I apologized for starting in on Tobias again. I'll do the same here. I hadn't seen another thread that got really nasty before I posted the question for Tobias. I'm truly sorry for adding to the negativity around here.

A while back, someone around here predicted that the closer we got to the Rangers movie, the more likely we would be to encounter trolls, hostility, and generally some nasty stuff. I said that wouldn't happen, as I had more faith in people.

It was one of the rare instances where the mighty GKarsEye was wrong.

Care to take a shot in the dark as to who that was? (as if this post isn't a big enough hint already)

Sheridan: Are you trying to cheer me up?
Ivanova: No sir, wouldn't dream of it.
Sheridan: Good, I hate being cheered up. It's depressing.
Ivanova: So in that case we're all going to die horrible, painful, lingering deaths.
Sheridan: Thank you, I feel so much better now.

OH, they've gotten nasty, gkarfan. Trust me. We are just an emotional lot, aren't we? And I'll say this once more, and not again: an anonymous review is a very questionable source, automatically. That's why AICN is a source I consider worth ignoring from now on.

I would LOVE to continue this debate when ulterior motives aren't highly suspicious.

Why don't we all start talking in cryptic-mode, like Kosh.

That way, a flame war would look like this:

Yes.
Good.
Go.

No.
Yes.
Good.

Can any of you graphics wizards come up with an image of a scampering Vorlon for me? I'd LOVE to see it!

Even a Sinclair on a broom, maybe?

Drakh started that thread warning us about the dangerous trolls. I remember, I remember. Because he's...Drakh...warning us about evil people. The irony!

Yes I am in agreement here.

We really do need to calm down and get back to our mature discussions, speculations etc.

We all need to treat each other with respect even if we do not see each other face to face.

I am closing this thread now please keep the above in mind when posting.
