It happened, and call it simplified but, if you've ever been to their forum, my god. Filled with right wing nutjobs, ban happy moderators, and an anti-trek, anti-ditl, anti anything better than Star Wars bias...Very UNcool!

You're getting closer but that's still not a rant. You need some serious negative emotions and coherent sentences. A point would also be awesome.

Geez, are you trying to push my buttons?!? The sentence was clear and coherent...Anyone with an OPINION want to chime in? Anyone except 'Granny Grammar' over here?

I think he means that some specific references would be appreciated.

For instance, how exactly are they "anti-ditl"?

No, I'm trying to get you to have an actual rant instead of a vague complaint.

Whose ranting about DITL????
They say that in the Army,
the women are mighty fine.

I'm about confused myself. What exactly are you trying to tell us?

That spacebattles sucks? :D

In his def, there is some serious portal hate going on over there. Then again, they are all under the impression any sci-fi universe would pwn trek.

The Most elegant point made about this topic. Hats off to you Deep.

Here is my take on it, who gives a flying *BEEP* what they think about DITL, Star Trek, Star Wars or anything else for that matter. They are entitled to there rather limited opinions. We know this is a good site, any of us who stick around to post a bit know its a good only community. In fact I think that's enough said on this.

On a more interesting note, changed my avatar.

Regarding SB.com itself, I think I've been there a grand total of twice. Nothing there ever caught my interest, so I didn't stay.

Browing their Vs forums just now, though, brings up a 19 page long thread about Halo Vs Trek. At a wild guess I'm going to say that this rant was sparked by said thread. Not that I know for sure, since I've far better things to waste my time on than reading it.
