*stomps lim jyue* :P
er, firstly, my apologies for playing a part in the
drag out smack down off topic threads.
however, a query, now that the issue of writing
"gundam wing sucks" or "first gundam sucks" is tackled
as a freedom of speech. i had nothing against that,
or duckflesh's anti-wing website -- an insubstantial
rant page that i thought was pretty much prepubescent
kindergarten in quality, but still within his rights.
what i DID have something against was a certain
poster slamming other people for talking wistfully
about perfect grade gundam wing kits (a perfect grade
tallgeese in particular) -- a matter of discussion
that is perfectly valid on this mailing list. i
thought it was undescribably obnoxious and flameworthy
(as acceptable as flaming someone is, which i know
isn't, yes, i'm a hothead), and far less acceptable
than off topic threads, as far as freedom of speech
and responsibility are concerned.
er, that's all.
happy owner of a brand spanking new gundam character
encyclopedia...and didn't have to fork over a single
cent for it :)
