    Also not quite sure what your claymation argument even... means. Like I don't know what you're trying to say there.
    It's just me saying I've heard that argument before, I really don't have anything against it. It's just I still feel they could of done it better, I dunno. Not really a film person...hardcore gamer :p
    Aaron is the animation decent? I've always wanted to watch them but haven't got around to it : /
    Yep it actually is pretty decent.

    Really, Bane? What was this about me forcing my opinion across? When, that curiously enough, appears to be what you are doing. That isn't an opinion, what you just expressed. It was arrogance.
    yeah I'm not sure I where you're getting this stuff from. I just know M that my days on HPF are becoming grossly O limited-- which should please more I than a few of you. Almost every time I make a post someone twists my words around for M whatever reason, it's just not a very good atmosphere O for adult conversation, IMO. I think some of you are great to talk to, but it's getting to where I find myself re-reading posts that I'm about to submit just to make sure that they're Stafford-approved, or Morse-approved, etc. and frankly I have much better things to do with my time. In my opinion.

    I don't see his post as forcing his opinion on Aratron.

    So Crucify the ego, before it's far too late, to leave behind this place so negative and blind and cynical. And you will come to find that we are all one mind, capable of all that's imagined and all conceivable.

    I didn't really see it either, and my opinion is more important than @Stafford if he's targeting me, besides @Bane has my PM now. Before that he didn't know why I reasoning behind not seeing DH2, I really couldn't care less at that point because I know a lot of people would be as confused if not more.

    Bane, you know I really enjoy 99.9% of your posts. You are a great addition to the forum. Im glad you are here and sad to think that others are skrewing the fun for you. But please do your best to ignore the knuckle heads. I know you can.

    Don't you get it? I'm not asking you to put 'In my opinion' at the end of each sentence. I'm merely telling you to stop accusing me of forcing my opinion across. When the closest thing i've ever got to doing so is what i quoted from you. It works both ways.

    Honestly, I think the main problem here is since it's the internet and people generally get into a fairly heated debate, people come off slightly...arrogant? Regardless of the side of debate. Anyways, as for what THAT was about, it was about the fact since you came off arrogant from pointing something out that was somewhat meaningless I thought that I was more important since @Bane was targeting me specifically but since you aren't being arrogant and just simply made yourself seem in-advertantly so my point was pointless. I think the main problem here is, it's not really an even debate, it kind of is but there's more people into the films rather than the books, at least ones who argue for the books > films. I'm not really a confrontational person so I don't go completely out of my way for an argument (which the rest of you do) the worst I do is just be confusing.

    Well, in your case? Apparently not. Calling someone a 'knucklehead' is exactly what you are against. Name calling.

    He was saying something in response to me talking about how I'm finding it increasingly difficult to keep coming back. I don't think he was actually calling you a knuckle head, but of course you blow it out of proportion and act like he's calling you a rotting platypus cunt.

    Yes, and I did not call you a knucklehead. I was refferring to people who give Bane a hard time, and describing them as knuckleheads, which is the nicest description there is.

    OH MY GOD IT WAS A FUCKING JOKE lol. Name calling? Stafford if I do recall correctly you've called many a twat over the years. Don't be so bitter to other members now that you had youre mod privileges taken away. I think on the grand scheme of things the word twat carries more weight than knucklehead...lol.

    No kidding. The Hypocrisy on HPF is ridiculous. It's the main reason I joined COS forums to get away from all the arguing, the fighting, and the nonsense on HPF. I hate checking threads anymore because theres always some sort of argument going on.

  • @RyGuy .. yeah, I just joined yesterday, and I'm seeing all this stupid arguing and it's making me not want to post an opinion in fear of getting my ass reamed out by the one person that DOES seem to blow everything out of proportion.

    Please stay around lol. If anyone messes with you they will have to answer with me, and that is a promise.

    SEE FOLKS. This post makes my point. It isn't the end of Potter that is making people not want to join in on discussions...it is the fact that theres a fight every other day. Who wants to join a forum full of negativity?

    @RyGuy @Richard luckily for you me and @silverarrowgriffin are used to fights from that other site we come from. I actually used to be involved in every BIG issue that came up and for the most part, ran circles around people who couldn't keep up. Honestly I think I ran circles around coon when he came in chat several days ago especially because he got me confused with @aaron lmao. Since this is a forum it's more difficult to run around in circles but unlike a chat I think I can more easily avoid them since I know what I'm doing. :p
