Yes, you do have some serious growing up to do seeing as your supposed "joke" was were the name calling began and ended >:oP

Exactly! Clearly you need to learn a little more about the written language. Next time you want to be sarcastic try leaving the insults out and using some (or all) of these :P 8-} :o) Itaics, as they help to convey sarcasm and emotion.




Quote me where I insulted anyone? Where I attacked and demeaned just one member. I never did. All I did was debate the topic.

And I never recall seeing a jet plane flying around with bits of tank on its body....love to see a pic of that new technology

Whatever man. Tell yourself whatever you wsh. Bottom line, they are not CHUG. I know the G stands gor generations, but that shows you how ****** that acronym is. Generations is GENERATIONS> Different reiterations. This makes this line different than Classics or Universe as 100% of classics was g1 and 90% of Universe was as well. Just because there is a subline that is not Prime or movie related does not mean it just automatically gets classified as geewun. Only people with geewun'itis do this. You know, douches who take figures like ROTF Beachcomber, or FOC Shockwave and call them G1 because they are bitter that Hasbro never released a pure G1 version. Springer is a good example. All of you drooled over your Asian market movieverse Springer that was repackaged as a "generations" figure. Yet it looked nothing like it. Just like the Generations Voyagers Blitzwing and Springer. They are barely g1. Name and color. That is all. Springer fits in with FOC because he is a Cybertronian vehicle. You could go as far as to say that Generations Kup or Blurr are not G1 either, because both are basd on IDW.

Its sad how geewunnners hold to the past. LEts embrace the future. And the current and future fate of the GENERATIONS (pay atttention to the definition) is FOC and IDW. And then movie time.......might be 2017 or so before you see your real CHUG Trailbreaker....
I decided to quote the entire post so you couldn't claim I made it up ;) I couldn't care less about the geewun crap because that is always pulled out by people who either can't come up with anything else to back what they are saying, or people who just like to rag on G1 fans [-(

If it really was a joke then I quote;

Can't be 100% sure, but I doubt there are many around who truly believe that all Generations releases are G1 related.

shockblast2 wrote:And I admitted that is what I was doing to Sabrblade in particular. And as a matter of fact, that debate had nothing to do with the rest of you so what the hell do you care, rather than to rip someone for something because they don't agree with your opinion? I mean really? Did it affect you personally? Were you personally offended that I told Sabrblade that he had geewunitis? Because if you would have read the WHOLE thing you would have seen my post where I continously threw myself under the bus. But, you didn't read that far because you decided to pass personal judgment on me before considering the whole situation, didn't you? I wasn't trying to hate on him for his opinion. And I told him that. As a matter of fact I told him I highly respected him because he feels so strongly about his position. There rest of you? I don't know. You all seem to like to rag someone when you don't read the whole story. Next time, look at the situation as a whole before making a judgment on someone.
Again, couldn't care less about your opinion. As I always said, it was the insult in particular that I was commenting about. People who are being respectful don't use the word douches even when they are "joking" as it is disrespectful. Speaking of that, why would you assume any of us hadn't read the entire thread? Why would you assume we "decided to pass personal judgment" on you "before considering the whole situation"? You said something that we could've reported you for, even if it was taken out of context, because it looked like an attack on every collector who had ever re-purposed a toy. That is, essentially, attacking someone for their opinion is it not?

I did look at the situation as a whole and called you out on one comment that went to far, nothing more.

Next time remember what you've already said before saying something like that. Yes it could've been meant a
different way to how it reads, but a little something extra is needed when making jokes online, including making sure your sense of humour is going to be understood by those reading it. I have no interest in fighting with you, and I'm willing to walk away at this point. Hopefully you will take something from this and moderate your jokes in the future so we wont have anymore misunderstandings and instead can have a few laughs.

Crap, posted by mistake and just realized that I can no longer delete posts due to no longer having mod powers.
Well, you "know what you've got when it's gone" or something like that.
