I wasn't calling you out... just several of the things I've seen posted elsewhere. But to me, it sounds like the author is saying they are getting rid of EU for something crappier, which isn't fair. Now, come Episode VII and it isn't great, then I think it's a legitimate gripe; but to complain about something before it happens, that's where I mean it sounds like the bitter fanboy rant. So basically she is pre-judging the new trilogy because the EU was declared "Legacy" and not canon by Disney.
But, again, Nick, just because Disney says it isn't so, doesn't mean that you can't think it's so in your SW world. Trust me, there are things tinkered with in the Original Trilogy Special Editions that aren't canon to me (Greedo shoots first, etc). I remember complaining about that and having people counter it by saying, "It's Lucas' movies, he can do what he wants." I guess Disney now has those rights to make those changes, but it doesn't mean they own the memory of the Star Wars I love... I hope that's the way you feel about it as well.
Sometimes this EU debate is worse than some of the political ones in the Sarlacc Pit.
This pretty much sums up how I feel. To me it is much like Marvel. The movies don't jive with 100% of everything that has come before, but that doesn't mean I can't enjoy stories, even if they contradict something in a movie series I love. I still love the Zahn books. The fact that they aren't part of the official chronology doesn't really matter at all to me. At some point, the amount of time these characters spend in peril is unrealistic anyway.
