    My Little Pony: Ranting Is Magic

    That's what blackholing was for, but that hasn't been used in a long time. I don't even know if the root DNS blacklist concept is even officially supported anymore.
  2. Is that your only question, or just the first? Challenge: Anyone who can diagram those two sentances gets THREE (3) internet cookies.
  3. Why is this here? (Star Trek vs. Star Wars) *Picks up thread* 42 34 65 32 HUTT HUTT HUTT *Punt*

    Star Trek 2012 Reboot Video Game

    Reboots reboot the entire franchise, and all the little subcontinuities? You sure you want to make that arguement, because Mr. DC and Mr. Marvel (The Right Honorable Lords of Reboots and Resets) would like to point out that exactly how you define "Franchise" is important if you want to split hairs this precisely. And we'll see how long the Trek Prime franchise (or the Trek franchise entirely) remains viable. I remember what the nineties were like, and that's what drove the brand. Remember, Trek becoming the size of World of Warcraft is a contraction that is almost painful to contemplate - and that's probably the best Trek Prime can hope for without a tentpole in the mainstream media.

    Star Trek 2012 Reboot Video Game

    I have severe doubts as to the viability of another Prime series in near to medium term, at least in the form we knew. Modern TV consumption might support another DS9 style series, but grimdark is just too popular right now to make the themes of mainstream Star Trek profitable without the fans. And of course Berman poisoned that well so thoroughly and Coto didn't get the chance he needed. As for the reboot/alternate timeline stuff? Really, were going to have a fight about that? Functionally, it's a reboot - whatever the story excuses are. Those story excuses do continue a long ST tradition though.
  6. That's damning with faint praise there.
  7. THE UFP IN YESTERDAY'S ENTERPRISE WAS LOSING THE WAR. If you want to have a conversation on how a quadrant spanning Klingon Empire does when it eventually contacts the Dominion around the year 3400, we can try, but extrapolating that far is just silly.
  8. RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  9. He actually used a quote. I'm amazed, but I was thinking that for such a momentous occaision, he'd have a point.
  10. What does that have to do with what I said?
  11. To quote another mod on another board: RAAAAAAAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    TCW: Continuity nightmare?

    I haven't seen much of TCW, but of course it's going to be a continuity nightmare, it's an open ended tv series. It has all of the constraints that ST, or in fact any TV Series does. The only show that I've seen able to maintain continuity over long periods was Babylon 5, and JMS wrote virtually every single significant episode himself.
  13. To each their own, but I find that Miss Manners debates generally devolve into talking past each other. Especially without an active, and impartial mod staff that is empowered to close topics and declare winners if people don't obey rules. Of course, I've never really thought that moderation is that great an idea, hence my preference for USENET. I've always thought the relatively unique "style" of ASVS came about as a way to deal with the heavy use of killfilters. The more outrageous or insulting a statement, the more likely it was to be quoted.
  14. Yeah, I'm not exactly a Miss Manners poster. Does SFJ have a list of people banned/deleted? If so, I should check for old aliases.
  15. I should point out that the same can be done in reverse. As an SDN poster with ASVS links, it's obviously only a matter of time before I flame out, curse the mods families and get myself banned. Either that or I get bored and start politics arguments on Facebook I went into the forum that had the most horrific title, the canon one, but yeah, for the most part they were pretty old, but then again, that's when my opinions were formed. Here's a question for you, how long would I last, if - using my normal style - I showed up on SFJ? I doubt they'd tolerate my descriptions of my opponents. They may be old threads, but they were on the front page of their respective forums.
