[quote]Maybe the best way for us to fight back here is to improve our article? More on the history of SD.net and the characters here would certainly make it a more worthwhile article as opposed to the current very basic one.

That's exactly what I had in mind. I didn't know that there was a better article before. Damn them.

Hey Castaldo, how about you register here and then we can debate the merits of whether the SDnet entry should be deleted. Stop sniping at us from afar like a coward.

How is it that Spacebattles gets an entry, TrekBBS gets an entry, but somehow SDN doesn't deserve one?

I registered and made a statement as such.

Here's a comment to add to the people wanting to delete it:

VGCats and 8-bit Theater have their own articles. JibJab and Neurotically Yours each has an article. Homestar Runner has multiple articles, as does Weebl. These obviously advertise the sites in question. So VGCats and 8-bit Theater can have their information condensed into the already existing Webcomic article and then deleted. JibJab, Neurotically Yours, Homestar, and Weebl can all be condensed into a single Macromedia Flash Cartoon article and deleted.

Already done, HG.

LOL! Even someone we banned voted 'strong keep' for us!


Surlethe, that would be nice, but we need to keep in mind that a lot of these dumbasses think that cursing somehow invalidates arguments. :roll:

Eh, I know. I was being slightly facetious; plus, I was aware he was monitoring this thread, so I thought I'd put in a little message for him.

He won't. He's too busy getting assraped by Alyeska...

Other than that, it appears the VFD discussion has stagnated. I still want ComCat banned.

What did ComCat do? All I see is "NN, D" -ComCat.

Otherwise, yes, Alyeska is doing well where I left off last night :wink: .

Idiot Mike: You can't compare ST and SW like Wong does, they are two different universes.

Me: Yes you can, using science. Without a common base of reference, debate and comparison is impossible. Science allows this.

Idiot Mike: You cant use science!

Me: Your attacking the fundamentals of the debate now and declaring yourself a superior authority.

Idiot Mike: No I'm not, and I'm still right!

Idiot Mike: There's nothing good about the site. They insult me!

Me (bringing up new information): Yes; there's unique educational content, entertainment content, and reams of information pertinent to the vs. debate. By the way, cut out with the perceived ad hominems and style over substance fallacies.

Idiot Mike: You haven't raised anything not pointed out above. By the way, look at me; I don't throw around fancy latin terms (though I could, if I were superior enough)

Me: Why don't you address the points?

Idiot Mike: You haven't raised anything not pointed out above. Blah blah blah...oh, look, I made a point without accusing someone of logical fallacies (thus apparently demonstrating myself superior...)!

If he links to this again (Since you do read this I am adressing this to you Mike) and complains how we are slandering him over here, I am going to openly mock him for his stupidity in the VFD thread.

And in case anyone has a stupidity tolerance lower than Alyeska's, here's the VfD thread in question; the stupidity gets worse as one gets closer to the bottom, with Mike_Castaldo engaging in broken-record behavior, black/white fallacies, ad hominems, red herrings, and style-over-substance fallacies.

It truly pains the mind.
