On a slightly different note, Kudos to the mods here over that spammer that hit JD the other day.  I noticed the rather odd pm's from someone I didn't know and that he was banned before I even had a chance to report it.

Agreed, just be lucky if any of you didn't get that PM...

Well it did shatter my mental impression on the stature of Asian men, so maybe it served some purpose after all. :-*

LOL.  Yeah, I was justifiably shocked.

That could've been on any man, and impressions would've been shattered.  Short of having 4 legs, nothing was natural on that.

So ... it's not just my computer then.  I think I was able to sneak one post in there this morning, but that's been about it since last night.
Their software really sucks.  At least these Forums work when you want them to.

It's been screwed up on mine since about 1 o clock today, I can read topics (sometimes) but when I try to post it gives me some page full of SQL errors or some **** like that.

You have to give credit where credit is due. RS did credit JD with the unveiling of the wave 3 Stormtrooper on the front page.

Dan and I are friends on some level since he and I both have some affiliation with FFURG and met up at C3...  He's good guy and we like to think we acknowledge RS when they've got the word too.  Like I've always said Anton, the whole JD/RS thing is less than some make it out to be...  I think it mostly all has always revolved around their forums, and how it was a place we all once enjoyed but have now become a quagmire of rampant stupidity, and not just from the newbs.  There's some longtime members there that are just as stupid in their behavior around those, and other boards.  They also tend to be the ones making it out to be more too.

The beefs have been between some specific people though, not site vs. site really.  Obviously though, I'd say 99.9% stemmed from the forums and how they've been run (and how long-term, good contributors to them were treated) since they were the good old BHC.  Thus we have our own thing here...  As far as news goes though, we're just like Scum and Galactic Hunter with our efforts here, and we tend to mention each other where it's due and not shared info.

Dan is a good guy.

unlike some of RS's staff it seems.

after i joined JD i decided I would check out RS forums but once I saw the 1,000billionkajillion completely stupid and poorly defined rules i just said to myself '**** this' and forgot about it.

the only affiliation i've ever had with RS is when I reported finding a new wave of galactic heroes and got my first name (david) posted on the homepage.

i gotta say a part of me will always hate most the ppl on RS forums, when i first joined i thought I'd found somewhere you could voice your opinion on hasbro and not get a retarded retort from ppl whom must be paid by hasbro or at least have some sort of stake in them since i dare anyone to blast '06s repack collection at any length and watch yourself become intangled in a massive argue fest the likes of which God has never seen(Dune), it is only once you've been at the the height such controversy over having said stupid things that you will have the courage to resign your screenname from RS and find refuge here on a site that isn't overly pimping everything : Master replicas, Gentle Giant, and of course anything repacked,reprinted, or retarded. the only good thing about RS has to be the pn's,Customs and of course the custom alliance. other than that they might as well close it with theforce.net while there at it.

There once was a time when I would have lampooned the RS membership for their lax standards of language. However, to do so today without making proper mention of the current plight some of our newer members seem to be having would be both hypocritical and unbecoming, so.

I think Vator was referring to the trouble that some of the members were having with grammar and the English language in general -- not with JD :).
