Cap just do yourself a favor and drop it. While I do appreciate what you're doing... it's kind of pointless. You see, I did something similar yesterday and struck quite a nerve apparently. In the process, however, I actually learned something that's kind of disturbing: some people are entirely incapable of being taught a lesson. Meaning that they actually do not understand it. I took that same "almighty, incontrovertible truth" that certain members have been pointing at hopeful fans since day one, and turned it on them. However, while the usual hostile shenanigans ensued... everyone entirely missed the point. Are they so egocentric that they really can't see how immature it is to attack people over their choices/opinions as collectors? Even perfectly reasonable people are turned into hostile idiots over this subject. Yet even the attacked are treated the same despite defending themselves or others.
Which i should have predicted. From now on, just roll your eyes. SHM is threatening to some people (for some reason), and they have a tendancy to lash out. Its actually pretty skreeonk pathetic. I don't remember trying to (snicker) rally the troops when the gorgeous Gigabrain Ghidorah was announced. I don't grit my teeth and rage every time Hazawa Gumi releases a new SD Godzilla. I certainly don't act like they're people.
Ya know what? skreeonk em. They are the minority (around here at least. I know there're uncounted legions ) and the squeaky wheel always gets the grease. Do you think a single one of those people actually went "Wow... that's how I'm acting?"
Besides the mods will start squashing your posts and acting like they're inappropriate for the Whine thread. Which they aren't because they're about people not toys. Though I know people actually seem to not be able to differentiate between the two.
