Save for the one in the museum, the rest must've been scrapped or destroyed. And yes, that clearly strikes a nerve around here, but then folks were trying to get on mine from the get-go so I hardly care.
What do you expect? Sci-fi debates are primarily about how folks view their chosen franchise and how to make it better (ie: add more of what I like).
And Kendall, I didn't pull any crap. People who were illogical and wrong tried to claim I was actually the one who was wrong, even after I gave the "agree to disagree" olive branch. I resisted their bogus claims of my so-called errors, and they flamed and attacked. I resisted. They persisted. I showed I wouldn't back down. They crumbled into disarray. End of story.
I'll be damned if resisting lies and attacks based on illogic and error is something I would ever apologize for or allow someone to claim I was in the wrong for having done, and anyone who thinks otherwise can kiss my ass.
The only thing I did wrong was let the time vampires take up a bit too much time out of my day. On that point, I'll freely admit error. But beyond that? Hell no.
No, you stamped your feet, declared victory and went home. It comes across as extremely childish. Now in this case you where at least partially in the right but it doesn't make it any less silly.
Actually, re-reading the last few pages, it seems more like people where talking past each other then too each other.
