Annael's link doesn't lead me anywhere, but I think she means the post titled "Yeah it does make me deepen my appreciation for LOTR" in the same thread, which is rude and insulting, and explicitly flouts the image guidelines, to boot.

what a word! *writes it down to slip into conversation somewhere...* [In reply to] Can't Post

"Anserous". Who knew? I thought it was a play on not-serious (ie: an-serious) until Aunt Dora looked it up for me.

I love learning new words. Thanks.

Yeah, [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm not sure if this is ok (or even a good thing to think), but one thing that I really loved about that thread was seeing all the replies written with good humor. Obviously, something like that should not be taken seriously, and I nearly didn't reply, myself, at first, but when I saw all the potential fun you could have with it, I couldn't help it! In that sense, I'm almost glad we had something like that! (if that makes sense)

I feel a little sorry for him [In reply to] Can't Post

I figure he's about 13 and unsure of his masculinity - and picked the wrong way and the wrong group to assert it.

There's a lovely scene in Lars and the Real Girl where Lars's older brother, who is about to become a father, tells Lars what it means to be a man:
Lars: I was talking to Bianca, and she was saying that in her culture they have these rites of passages and rituals and cermonies, and, just all kinds of things that, when you do them, go through them, let you know that you're an adult? Doesn't that sound great?
Gus: It does.
Lars: How'd you know?
Gus: How'd I know what?
Lars: That you were a man.
Gus: Ahhh. I couldn't tell ya.
Lars: Was it... okay, was it sex?
Gus: Um. Yeah, yeah, yeah, it's uh, yeah, yeah it's kind of - it's uh - no. Well, it's kind of sex but it's not uh, you know? I don't know. I don't know. It's - uh - good question, good question.
Lars: Yeah, but I have to know
Gus: Okay, you know I can only give you my opinion.
Lars: That's what we want
Gus: Well, it's not like you're one thing or the other, okay? There's still a kid inside but you grow up when you decide to do right, okay, and not what's right for you, what's right for everybody, even when it hurts.
Lars: Okay, like what?
Gus: Like, you know, you don't jerk people around, and you don't cheat on your woman, and you take care of your family, you know, and you admit when you're wrong, or you try to, anyways. That's all I can think of. It sounds like it's easy and for some reason it's not.

I think boys in this society would benefit greatly from a rite of passage where adult men take them in hand and show them what mature males are really like. It seems like too many boys think being male means being able to "best" other people, and the Internet fosters that concept too readily. I would imagine the forums at the Star Wars sites are like those on AICN - lots of spittle and thrown rocks.

I can't find it now, but [In reply to] Can't Post

I would swear he claimed to be 34 or something. Of course that doesn't mean anything. Also, in scrolling through his posts, I notice a real difference in tone, and I almost wonder whether two different people are using the same nickname. Anyway, I think we were reasonable with him, considering the provocation. As flame wars go, I think we kept the temperature pretty low (and hysterical).

And I love what you said about learning from adult men. Case in point was Orcbane's great comment "Now learn something. If you are only with men you are losing. Not winning. Losing." We have some wonderful men on these boards!

the sad thing is, the topic could have been discussed seriously [In reply to] Can't Post

In fact, I think we've talked about it before on the boards: are there more male fans of the book vs. female fans of the movie, and if so, thoughts on why, etc.

There was no need to be inflammatory about it, and that was the unfortunate thing.
