It's similar to the same thread that's started nearly each week in the movie forum.
1. So what if it is?
Every week, at least 1 "the movie ruined Trasnformers/my childhood/my life" thread starts, but so does 1 "the movie is the best thing ever" or crediting the movie with saving or ressurecting a franchise that hadn't gone away and was doing fine for itself.
I don't go whining in all those overly positive threads about over reactions, false claims or repetative threads do I?
No. Because I respect people's opinion and right to express it.
People have opinions, either debate intelligently or avoid, just stop whining about those that differ to yours, or, like some in this thread, responding to comments not even made here.
It just makes you (the generalised you, not specifically you) look stupid.
Did you even read my post? I gave my points about how TF isn't ruined.
Funny how people over looked my on topic comments and decided to centre on my thoughts on how these sorts of threads are repeatative.
OH but look out! You "respect people's opinion and right to express it" yet here you are criticising me for having an opinion of my own ...
2. It is not similar to the other threads. It was a lighthearted joke, one that poked fun at fans who react to every change as though it killed the franchise dead.
If you wanna get angry, get angry at those that actually say something ridiculous, not those you wrongly assume say something because you can't be bothered to read their post or apply any form of context.
Sorry, don't see the difference between this "What do you think ruined Transformers" and the multitude of "Michael Bay raped my childhood" type threads.
Know why I don't see the difference? Because i'm sick and tired of all the negativity.
Okay, fine, that's not how it was intended. It was a joke, I get that. I just didn't find it funny, if anything it was flame baiting (what a suprise, a person takes it out of context, gives an opinion, flames ensure) yet, like I said, I still gave my thoughts on the actual topic of discussion.
So i'm sorry to disappoint you all, but I did contribute my thoughts to the central topic of this thread. But like I said, it was a joke filled with potential flame baiting. And lo and behold the flames did erupt simply because someone "didn't get the joke" because he was too busy trying to "debate intelligently".
Want to bitch at me for taking something out of context? Then look in the mirror because people have obviously missed the part of my first post where I shared my opinions about TF being ruined, and isn't that taking things out of context as well?
But hey, you know what? So I took it out of context, conveying humour and emotion across the internet is not an easy thing to do, but seeing as I obviously have failed to grasp this particular joke (and will no doubt be branded as a humourless arsehole with a stick permanently lodged up his arse even though the majority of people here have absoloutely no idea what my sense of humour is like) I apologise for the derailing this thread and misintepreting the original intent of the thread's purpose.
And I liked Munkys as much as Pretenders. And Micromasters are infinitely cooler than Mini-Cons.
