      Don't take it to heart, though I can't imagine why anyone would even do that... you say what has to be said. Good night.

        Left you a small happy-package in your PM. I hope I can bring a smile on your face, cause I don't like people to be sad.

          So people are more polarized over Dr. Weir than over Sam, huh? Maybe that's because we know where to criticize the character (anti threads) and where not to (general s4 threads)?

            Remember, Keep the Faith you never know if things could end up to your liking again down the road.
            Beg to differ. Didn't JM say on his blog that he didn't care if 10 times more fans wanted X to happen, it wouldn't have any influence on decisions? All you have to do to know they ignore us here on GW is to look at polls. I mean there aren't enough sock puppets around to sway the percentages that much. IMHO, the Carson situation doesn't even count because I think it was all part of the plan to start with. Personally, I feel like a yo yo. Slightly jerked around.

            Seriously though, I'm not sure what to think at the moment. All I want is an explanation from the mods on why Carter-talk is not being banned. As I said before, it's possible that the insults aren't as bad, which I can agree with to a degree, and if this was the reason, then I'll be fine with it. Basically, I disagreed with you that this is the mods somehow picking sides and going Pro-Carter. I still don't think that's true at all, but it'll be nice to hear why Weir-talk was chosen over Carter-talk.

            More info is all I need.
            I haven't been on any of the Carter threads, but I'm willing to bet the anti-Carter folks don't rise to the level of hatred of certain anti-Weir folks who previously have been allowed free rein. Shutting down discussion at least isolates them where they can spew hatred only among their own kind. I'm also willing to bet that won't satisfy them for long.

              No it won't. I'm sure they'll just pick another thread in which to spew.

                Rather upset that this doesn't matter to him. Doesn't it make more sense to pay attention to what the fans say? I mean, we are the ones who make or break a show, we decide whether to watch or not watch. Major changes in S4 are, whether they like it or not, driving some fans away. They give the impression that they don't care. Beyond that, the fans who make neutral comments or ask neutral questions on his blog are made fun of just as much as antis.

                This whole thing seems like one big, unending argument. Unfortunately, not every fan can be placated.

                  I've got to respectfully disagree. I have yet to find a Carter fan who's participated in the petty anti-wars (read: anti-weir, anti-teyla), because the majority of Carter fans (whom I've seen - and there are several) don't hate Weir or Teyla.

                  Excusing the anti-Carter behavior because there are people out there who are anti-Weir is moot. In my opinion, we're talking about relatively the same group of people who've had problems with each other for over a year now - and very few of them are fans of the Carter character first and foremost.

                  I can let the anti-Carter stuff go, but please don't try to rationalize it by pinning blame on people whose battles have absolutely nothing to do with Carter in the first place.

                    Uh...what? Didn't I say that the level of anti-Carter hatred does not compare to the anti-Weir hatred? I never mentioned the pro-Carter people because I don't know anything about them nor have I read anything in any Carter thread except the one in which we made it clear that we'd like to see both Carter and Weir on SGA and had nothing against Carter. What did I say that inflamed you? Please excuse me if I didn't make myself clear, but nothing I said excuses anti anybody.

                    And yes, there are a couple of people who are largely responsible for getting the Weir discussion thread shut down. I think we all know who they are but talking about them would be bashing other posters.

                      You didn't inflame me with your comments. Last week, maybe I would have been incensed. But at this point, I'm just kinda... bleh... about the whole thing. I'm about *this* close to being over it until September 28th, actually.

                      However, if you're admitting that you've never been in any of the Carter threads, wouldn't it be quite difficult to gauge whether or not the anti-Weir people are more visceral with their hatred than the anti-Carter people?

                      To me, by saying that (especially without knowing for sure), it's suggesting that the anti-Carter fans aren't nearly as bad as the anti-Weir fans. Which, in my opinion, is an excuse for continuous anti-behavior.

                      In essence, I saw a connection between anti-Carter posters and anti-Weir posters that I don't believe exists. I'm sorry if I misunderstood you there.

                      And yes, there are a couple of people who are largely responsible for getting the Weir discussion thread shut down. I think we all know who they are but talking about them would be bashing other posters.
                      If we continue to feed trolls, we are not much better than the trolls. The trolls are showing a lack of respect, but by feeding them we are showing a lack of self-control.

                      I've fallen victim to that mentality more times than I can count over the past 3 years. It sucks. But we do have to take due responsibility for our own actions when threads get shut down.


                      On topic: We can probably expect print ads and commercials for Atlantis soon. I hope they feature the whole team equally, without undue focus on any one or two characters. Otherwise, I'll be pretty irritated.

                          Guys, I understand your discussion of anti-Weir/Carter posters, but I think this thread should be kept to anti Season 4 discussion.

                          It makes sense that every main character, everyone in the credits would get a spot in the ads. Recurring characters... hmm, I doubt it, but we can always hope. As for the commercials - lotsa explosions, that's the type of thing the show runners are into.

                            Good point. I promise to try to stay on topic.

                            Remember when I came here, I said I wasn't very anti? I'm still not, but the things I was anti about then, I'm more anti about than ever now. I am, however, getting antsy. Is it September 28th yet?

                              [nods] The problems seem to loom ever larger as the date gets ever closer. Just not close enough.

                              I have to admit, I'm not completely anti, either. I'm really looking forward to seeing what can be done with this Teyla pregnancy storyline. There's some real potential for character growth there, not only with our mother-to-be, but with Team Sheppard, as well. What's left of it, anyway...

                                I'm looking forward to the first official pictures of the cast (minus Carter). It would get my muse in gear again (I hope).

                                And I really hope Sci-Fi does some great promotion for Atlantis (even if that means putting thier golden girl in the spotlights).

                                As a few others, I am not completely anti, nor am I completely pro (though leaning towards anti). But I'm not sure if I'm looking forward to the new season. I mean, that other years the premiere couldn't come fast enough, but I don't really feel that way now.
