I miss the philosophers forum.
Wait, when did we have that? That must've been after I left.
Way I hear it we had it for awhile but it was closed because the users kept flaming others for their arguments and beliefs. Which is a sure sign that you're not mature enough to be in a debate anyway. Man, what I wouldn't give for an adult sub-forum with a philosopher's forum/critical thinking area. I love a good debate.
Yeah, there was some good stuff in the Philosophers' Forum from time to time.
Ironhidensh mentioned the movie drawing new and younger people, and I agree with that. It seems like after movie 1, we became unable to actually discuss things because we were always hurting someones' feelings over some toy or something. I remember the Concept BB fiasco, and the whole scalper arguement and stuff, and how people had their delicate feelings hurt because some people considered Botcon figures and actual exclusive things to be superior than having six figures you bought at Target. I haven't been on here as long as some of you guys, but I did come in at the tail end of those halcyon days of actually having discussions instead of having some guy write you a book about you sucking because you don't think the new movies are the greatest things ever. That was back when we could dislike something without being told that we're lucky to get new toys or cartoons or whatever at all, when discussion reigned instead of being subservient to pandering to not hurting feelings.
Whew, sorry if that was windy and pseudo-poetic. I'm having one of those days.
You know, I'm kind of glad I skipped being around for those movie days then. Say, did anybody's parents get mad and come on the site? That sounds like something that could happen back then, and yes, those first wave movie toys did kind of suck, but they got reworked a lot.
Also, Counterpunch, what is with this Cake or Death thing?
Man, I must be coming down with something. I had this killer sinus headache for whole day at work. it was a bad one too, i felt it right behind my eye the whole time. Got home, ate something, took some aspirin, and took a 2 hour nap, and I still feel out of it.
