“Why I’m glad that I’m not a Crazy”
Now, before I start, I’m not trying to flame anyone or rip on anyone, I’m trying to express my opinions in the best way I know how.
Reading the forums these past few days, I've noticed something.
If you like the AotC figures, you’re SICK TO DEATH of listening to the “whiners” gripe and moan about how much they hate them because they are too preposed, too bulky, too gimmicky, etc.
If you hate the AotC figures, you’re SICK TO DEATH of the “do-gooders” telling you to shut up and take it like a man, and that even though you think they suck, they are still Star Wars figures and you should just accept it and buy them like the SW zombie you are.
What I want to know is this: why do we have to put up with the people who constantly bash other people's opinions?
An opinion is an expression of a person's thoughts and feelings on a subject, it is NOT a blatant claim to how all should feel and it is not an excuse to blast someone should they disagree.
Personally, I like reading what others have to say about the figures and hearing another collector’s opinions, but I do not like to read countless messages from posters saying “I think your opinion on the AotC figures is wrong because it is not the opinion I hold and you should change it based on the dumb-***$ remarks I have made.”
People are going to look at the pictures and form opinions and both sides of the love/hate coin have a right to their opinion and both sides have a right to express their opinion here on the Internet.
So, with that said, I’d like to start this peaceful thread where you can post your opinions and HOPEFULLY, they will be respected in a CIVILIZED manner.
So, if you think Anakin’s retro-vintage style pull out saber is the bomb, feel free to post it without another telling you that you are stupid for thinking so.
If you think Padme’s sculpt is the worst ever, post it without worrying that another will call you the dumbest collector alive for thinking so.
And should some troll blast someone for expressing an opinion, just ignore them and move on, don't give them they attention for which they are looking.
Let the freedom that is the “Polite Thread” where opinions are respected and not trashed begin...
