To Green Knight,

You are my hero!! I am a huge
Transformers fan and when I clicked on
link and when the picture of Optimus
Prime popped up, brimming with weapons,
I almost fell out of my chair. Optimus
is the Transformers version of a paladin
and he is one of my all-time heroes. I'd
like to ask you if you can tell me when
and on what channel this fall will this
new show Transformers: Armada be shown
on. Also, is this new series a result of
the Beast WArs / Machines stuff that
happened or is it a divergent reality of
some sort? I ask because the picture of
Optimus I saw on your link is old school.
Anyways, I feel like a little kid on a
caffiene trip so please forgive me. When
you see this, post what you can. Thanks
a million GReen Knight!! You've made my
day !!

You're not the only one. He's my all-time favorite, too. And though it's not pictured, he's also got that bad-ass rifle of his, back, and he transforms into a semi like before.

It starts August, will be 52 episodes, and will either air on Cartoon Network or WB. Also heard that a new station called "4Kids" may start up this fall and it may be on that. Check http://www.transfandom.com for more information.



<blockquote>Also, is this new series a result of the Beast WArs / Machines stuff that happened or is it a divergent reality of some sort? I ask because the picture of Optimus I saw on your link is old school.</blockquote>

As will be Armada. The year is 2010, 4 years after the end of the original series. Beast Wars and Beast Machines were in the distant future, so it won't have anything to do with that.

Heh, you're not the only one! Anyway, here're some more links:

Funny .. Most of us use our real names ..

Strange that you Mr. Grima Wormtongue refuse to..

I'm impressed really I am, you still lack the ability to have an intelligent debate. Give us some good points why your life is better then anyone else's, explain why you have placed your self above everyone else for that matter.

Why are you better? Are you better for coming on a peaceful message board and insulting people? are you better because you think you have a real life?

my friend, just the fact that you don't have anything better to do then come on this list and start all this proves one thing

It is you that lacks a life, normally I would not even have the time to come on here and post.. But people like you make me sick.. You are no better then anyone else, you are no one in our life's..

Why don't you just show your self out? Or are you capable of an intelligent debate?

from your last post, I doughty it

Um people, can't you recognize a troll when you see one? Whoever this person is, they're just looking to pick a fight. My suggestion, ignore it. Anyone who decides to hold that much bitterness and resentment against people participating in a hobby is not worthy of any attention.
There's no sense in banning him/her, since it can just get a new I.D. so simply ignore and go on with your business as usual. If it gets out of control, we can always track down his IP# and then take corrective action.

Hehe.. that's right daniel..
He's just here to cause trouble.. personally i think he has some sort of penis envy. more than likely he looked over to his right, while he was at a urinal at some con and got jealous of the gamer next to him.
Just ignore him.

To Grima Wormtongue/ Anonymous,

Like I said before, you are a coward
and you have decided that your new found
goal in life is the systematic destruct-
ion of all the gamers/ gaming in the
world? And yet you refrain from giving
your true identity. Spare us the cheap
bravado and self-appointed super hero
mentality of " Oh, I must now save all
these brainwashed souls from the villainy
that is gaming. " What are you, the patron
saint of ridiculous causes? See, I know
your type. You were obviously harmed by
this game or someone in this game on such
a personal level and it's driving you to
spread your verbal poison without regard
for the mass generalizations you are
making. You think that the harm that was
inflicted on you is so bad that you have
to throw it back tenfold against anyone
and anything associated with this game.
Part of me really hates you but more of
pities you. We play, we leave people to
do what they want with there lives. Un-
like you, we don't try to tell people
what to do. And yet you still refuse to
divulge your REAL identity... If you so
truly believe in what you're saying, you
wouldn't need to hide behind anonymity.
For better or worse, you would show your-
self and present your points of view in a
manner that does not insult, degrade, or
demoralize people. You did not and that
proves that as pathetic as you think WE
gamers are, you have us beat hands down
in that category.

Go ahead. Write back and insult us some
more. I know you will. I know that you
will hide behind that Wormtongue identity
which is appropriate since it seems that
the garbage is the only thing that spews
out of your mouth. You will rant and rave
about how we are evil, brainwashing, no
life people who can't relate to anyone or
anything that doesn't role dice or involve
heavy amounts of eating. Bravo!! Bravo!!
you can insult people!! You must be so
proud of yourself. You claim to have a
life and to be normal but you get on a
peaceful forum intended to be fun & blast
people for being different, insinuating
that you've been terribly & emotionally
scarred by this game and now you're sole
goal in life is to destroy the game, make
gamers lives miserable, and save as many
of us as you can from the horrible fate
that awaits us getting together with our
friends for a few hours, not bothering
anyone or telling them what to do with
their lives. Let me give you two pieces
of advice, once should sound familiar &
the other is for your own good.

1) Live and let live.
2) Get a life that consists of something
other than trying to control or malign
ours.

P.S.- And if you can't grow the b#lls to
state your real name and make your issue
or feelings known without blasting people
in one fell swoop instead of treating
people as individuals, then I suggest
you either a) renew your efforts to be-
come the leader of your local Ku KLux
Klan group, or b) become a politician,
since you possess their skill in ignoring
most of the truth and raping / warping
the rest of it to your convenience.

my real name. Unlike you, I'm not afraid
of it Mr. Patron of Cowardly Anonymity )

Anyone else notice that Anonymous is obsessed with mens' penises? He seems like a confused and unhappy lad, and the less said about him the better.
Seriously though, you guys shouldn't let him make you feel ashamed or angry. Who cares what he has to say? "Anonymous" is quite literally a nonentity. Insincere as well, unless he actually believes that insulting people will serve to "shepherd" them out of gaming (Unless he wants us to think he's stupid). Go back to the discussion about gaming that Dan started. That, at least, was interesting.
To start up a new thread, what is everyone's top 5-10 non-WOTC d20 companies? I know Paradigm is a local favorite (By all means, put 'em on your list), for obvious reasons, but what other companies are people buying from? Inquiring minds want to know...

Hey, some of us can't stop looking at our penis. They're lots of fun for boys and girls.
Not me, of course... just, uh, some of us.

Well, well, well,
It is amazing how many of us get worked up over a little insult. Why do all of you feel its necessary to defend gaming? Everyone has different views of the world, and I noticed long ago that ignorance is the hardest affliction to cure. Look at our "anomyous" friend. You couldn't change his mind on the issue of gaming if you beat the information into his thick skull with a brick.
As for the stereotype welcome to my world. Where I grew up DnD was taboo, and not played by "normal" people. Hell, until I came to this gamers paradise called Florida I NEVER mentioned I played DnD to anyone. Then I came to florida, met this cool guy named Peewee, The Stat Monkey God,, and met a wondwerfuly imaginitive and diverse group calling themselves gamers. Doctors, engineers, lawyers, salesman, evolutionary biologists, athletes, and students are just a few of the individuals I have met gaming.
So we represent a diverse group of peoples and ideals; why let the ignorance of one single individual get undeer our skin.? If thats his opinion let him keep it.....IT JUST MEANS MORE ROOM AT THE GAMING TABLE FOR US!!!!

P.S. I just read the editorial about gamers vs players. I always considered myself a player, but moving down here I think all of you out there turned me into a gamer...Damn you all :smile: Oh well, bring on the games

This is great! People are starting to use my terminology in their posts! Perhaps soon I'll have my own entry in the Oxford English Dictionary. :smile:

Dude, I think we've been more than patient with you so far. Please stop your annoying posts. This forum is for the discussion of themes regarding gaming, and while you are very welcome to state your opinion against it, you have violated every single rule of common decency and netiquette.
You are welcome to have an orderly discussion following the common rules of decency. If not, please kindly leave this forum.
Please understand something, it IS possible for the site's owner and administrator to trace your IP#, determine who is your Internet Service provider and seek your account, in order to ban you, or even seek cancelation of your service. It is a little work, but it is not impossible. Please do not force us to take this kind of action.
Again, you are welcomed to state your point, but leave the vulgarity, name calling and indecency in a box. Otherwise, please leave.

To , Grima Wormtongue, or
whoever the hell you are.

I find it both incredibly stupid &
hypocritical on your part that you hate
gaming so much and yet you consistently
use the name Grima Wormtongue, a very
" D&D " sounding name. I guess it just
proves what you have demonstrated in
your posts. Your issue is hatred towards
a select group of people, not gamers in
general. You don't hate gaming; you just
hate a very small group of people who
you feel used gaming as a weapon or a way
to hurt your feelings in a very bad way.
You ramble on about how these people are
homosexuals who brag about having sex
with lots of women and you seem obsessed
with the issue of obesity with regards to
gamers but specifically a number of
select persons. And yet, it comes back
to what I said earlier. You hate these
people, who just " happen to be gamers."
Dude, you think getting on this forum
that is for peaceful discussion about
roleplaying and using it as a slurring
stick of vulgarity, spite, and malice
makes you right, a big man, or a savior
of some kind? No, it only proves that
the only difference between you and a
jackass is that you're not wearing a
saddle on your back. Perhaps the only
right thing you've done is give your real
name, if that is your real name. You
claim you want people to stop gaming,
that it is evil or something? No, that's
not it. Your last few posts have proven
you're real agenda which is to hurt a
specific group of people for something
you beleive is a great offense to you.
Why don't you do us all a favor & deal
with these people directly instead of
coming on this forum and breaking every
rule of decency and decorum established.

You think gamers are pathetic? Bro, I we
looked up the word " pathetic " in the
dictionary, it would have your picture
as a visual aid. GEt your friggin
priorities in order. Why don't you just
step back into your life and out of ours.
What we do with our time is our business
not yours. And for Gods sake, don't be
such a hypocritical cretin " Grima
Wormtongue " and either deal with these
people privately or be aware that for
everything you say or do, there are
consequences. For a guy who hates
"gaming" so much, I find your fondness
for the name Grima Wormtongue ridiculous.

And lastly, just remember that your
ability to post here & the fact that you
still can is only because of the finite
patience of the people that run the site.
But as Daniel Perez said, you are gonna
find out the hard way what happens to
those that abuse the priviledge of
posting in this public forum. And as for
your issue with obesity in gamers, that
has a solution. However, I fear your
stupidity, crudeness, and ignorance may
be a permanent affliction in you.

P.S.- The more you post, the less I hate
you and the more I pity your pathetic
infantile nature. I we ever meet, remind
me to buy you a box of diapers and a
pacifier to take into account what a
crybaby trolling idiot you must be. Get
off this forum and stay off or measures
will be taken to have you taken off.

Signed- Rene' Alfonso

obsession.
