I know. I followed that thread for a while before I got too disgusted with it. I was thrilled when I heard it got locked. I just don't want to foster a culture of poking fun at people. Nobody benefits.
Just to be clear, the whole "winning the internet" thing is a reference to the sportsmanship thread, where he said something to that effect before making a hasty retreat. I'm just using his own words to poke fun at him for running away from the conversation - twice now.
Guys. Enough. Please.
This thread could've been a fine place to discuss new combos and generate excitement toward the up-and-coming Rebel Aces. If we cut out all the bitching about how OP rebels are, misplaced rules debates, and pointless mudslinging, this thread would probably be about a page long.
Don't like rebels and want to see balance restored to the force? Start a thread about it and watch it go up in flames.
Have a question about rules interactions? Put it on the rules subforum. If it's relevant to this discussion (like Jan), post a link on here but leave the discussion there.
Got a personal problem with somebody on the internet? Realize how ridiculous that is and avoid engaging with them.
But please, please stop trampling every thread into the muck and claim that you somehow "won the internet." You're not winning anything. You are ruining this forum one thread at a time.
Can we PLEASE talk about these leaked cards and how we plan to use them?
How many first time visitors to this forum have become first and last time visitors? How many people have kept great ideas to themselves for fear of attack?
We'll never know.
The fact is, I see this forum DESCRIBED as a friendly, helpful place far, far more often than I've seen it myself. It's depressing.
I know you want to point the finger at me. You've done it before, you can do it again. I won't be offended.
But there are plenty of people who will never post regardless, because it's just not their cup of tea. I have yet to meet someone in real life who isn't tickled by my sense of humor, but when I ask them about their forum activity they confess to being lurkers. This place is
friendly and helpful, so don't let some occasional squabbling convince you otherwise.
And let's all be thankful that nobody brought up firearms this time around. That alone was enough to get the last thread locked, judging by the moderator's response.
