You're missing the point. You're tryna prove stuff to uninterested people who really don't care and aren't gonna put in the time to care. All on this board run in the same circle, evidently. So as a peer it wouldn't be hypocritical to care what you guys think or else there need not be a message board to start with.

Education is freedom.

"Now you know... and knowing is..."

So we decide to educate.

ANd you are missing my point. My level of caring goes to knowledge. I have said in numerous posts in this thread what type of people I have issue with. For those that GL is only a black guy because they dont know any better I care enough to edcuate them. If and when I try they turn out to be one of those people that tell me I am wrong even with proof I stop wasting time and just walk away. See how that sounds similar to what you said you do or we should. Look back through this thread. I said the same exact thing twice and before you came in I might add. I CARE about those that are willing to be educated. Everyone else can go jump off the highest edge of Qward. This entire time I have said that I take the time with those who are willing to learn and say goodbye to those who are too ignorant or stubborn to learn. Clearer now?


In case you missed it.

I will say to you guys what I said to the Batfans. Instead of bitching these people out use this as your teachable moment. Explain to them the history if the GL's and how there are more than one and yes there is a black one but he was not the first. If you take the time to do this instead barking at peopl and telling they are idiots you end with some new fans who will then want to go and do the research. Barking on people will just make them say well "gee the Green Lantern comic fans are dicks" and they will want nothing to do with it. Embrace new fans with knwledge of what you love as opposed to alienating them by wasting a teachable moment.

I know this from exeprience with the Batfans and even some people that I have met that believe that the Holocaust never happened. You can show them every Green Lantern comic in the galaxy and they will still tell you that you are wrong. Why waste the energy or doofuses like that.

This.

There's obviously no point in educating the hater trolls, but those who are genuinely ignorant, but willing to admit their fault or at least learn the truth, those people make it worth it.

Great! If that's what YOU do, then what I've been saying on that subject--(drum roll please)........doesn't apply to you! (applause) I just find it odd that you were the main one replying to me about something that doesn't pertain to you. Go figure...

No apologies required, just be less of a jerk and we'll be ok. Thanks for posting the obvious, however

It's just bad message board etiquette to come in and talk like you own the place before you've established yourself as a valuable member of the community I've got over 1500 posts and I still feel a bit like a noob

It's a message board. I read and leave messages. I don't disrespect individuals. That's all that's required. As for post counts, I don't care if you have 1 post count or 30,000 post counts. If what you say is valid then it doesn't matter your post count. That's just comic book guy elitism at it's finest to buy in to that sort of rationale.

It's called being part of a community.

You obviously dont get social etiquette then do you? If you were in a bar that had a fairly regular group of guys that visited it, and this completely new guy comes in and starts shouting at people, saying they're elitists and wrong, you'd probably say that guy was out of line.

This message board is the bar, we are all the regulars and youre the new guy. Not trying to shun you or nothing, but just trying to show you that you need to kind of stick around solidly before anyone gives any real thought to your posts.

Just sayin'.

He'd get his teeth kicked in.

Also, you dont know any of us from Adam. The majority of us doesnt fit the typical "comic book guy" mold of "in mommy's basement with thousands of issues and over weight" stereotype.

Some of us do cool things. Some of us have exciting lives and we share those aspects of our lives along with our shared mutual interests here. So YOUR elitist attitude of "you are wrong, people! Hear me out!" is one of the many things that make these communities tighter- we just leave you out.

For my part, I'll admit to fitting in to many of the CBG stereotypes, but I think I'm nicer.
I never do anything cool, though.

Im sure you do. You just dont realize it. People usually never realize that something they do is cool, they just think its something they like to do.

Ok. Now try this.

Imagine you're an ol'timer who's been frequenting a bar since it's grand opening way back when. Just enjoying your favorite beer and the ambiance. Then... some guys find the place and start to visit the bar regularly, too; just with a lot more to say than you. They then bring up a topic where you feel you have some experience in and you decide to chime in. Now imagine that group of guys all looking at you as if you're the new guy and can't possibly have anything worthwhile to say because they've never noticed you before in a place that is all of a sudden "their" bar.

How would you look at these guys? They assume you're new because you don't make a lot of noise at the bar and try to discredit what you say because of it. And even if you were new...why should that discredit what you say? Elitism at it's finest.

If you do nothing, say nothing, you are nothing. You dont have a foot hold for the simple fact that you seemed to chime in for controversey for its sake, not to contribute.

Youre completely missing what anyone has been doing to you in the first place. No one is trying to "discredit" you.

And the fact that if youre an "old timer" doesnt make any difference. Even if you've been here longer, that doesnt give you the right to spout on and on about how everyone is elitist. It doesnt matter. It doesnt change the fact that you havent been an active part of this community and doesnt give you the right to go and spout on and on about how everyone is like Comic Book Guy. Now if West was saying something like that, I'd listen a bit more. He's been here for ages and he's earned his place. You havent.

What does that have to do with anything?!?

I said we shouldn't be snobs about it. Nobody mentioned "mommy's basement", "issues", or anything to do with being "overweight". I don't have to know a person's private life to deduce if they're responding like a snob about something.
