I apologize as well... [In reply to] Can't Post

...if any of my behavior has contributed to the downturn in atmosphere on the boards (I'll freely admit, I prefer to get the last word in a debate! Tongue). I'll try and keep more of check on my posting style in the future. Hopefully, excitement and optimism will win out over doubt or bickering in the coming months as we finally begin our long-expected journey! Smile

My Top 5 Wish List for "The Hobbit"
5. Legolas will surf down Smaug's neck
4. Bilbo will be revealed to a Robot
3. Naked PJ cameo as Ghan-Buri-Ghan
2. Use of not only 3D, but smell-o-vision, plus the inclusion of axes coming out of the seats and poking the audience when appropriate
1. Not only keep the claim that Thorin & Co. ran amok in Mirkwood "molesting people", but depict said incident in vivid detail!!!!!

I have been bighting my tongue. [In reply to] Can't Post

With little real news coming out the threads haven't offered much to sink my beak into. Also turning 64 woke me up. I took an oath to be a kinder and gentler old crow. Besides if I get grumpy I am certain to get a little note.

Apologies [In reply to] Can't Post

I apologize if I've broken any rules or offended anyone. Trust me, it's not my intent, I don't like to offend (or be offended). I will be more careful from now on.

Reading over the whole list [In reply to] Can't Post

I am certainly guilty of occasionally violating some of those standards. My apologies to everyone and anyone that may have been on the receiving end! I promise to buy you some chocolates, if you tell me who you are! Smile

Geordie [In reply to] Can't Post

I feel that I have been debating pretty harshly towards you in the films & book debates of late. If I have crossed the line in any occasion, I sincerely apologize.

A thread like this is a healthy reminder indeed that we are all supposed to behave in a good manner, and I feel guilty for having been a part of the rather heated discussions of late.

The greatest adventure is what lies ahead.

Thank you for posting this! [In reply to] Can't Post

Whilst I am relatively new to these boards, it has been very easy to notice certain problems and unhealthy debates occurring from time to time. I raise my hand and admit that I am not guilt-free in the slightest. As some others have stated of themselves, I am one of those people who are prone to wild moments of passion (I still regret that terrible thread I made about the Arkenstone a month or so ago!).

Therefore, I would like to use this thread as an opportunity to sincerely apologize to anyone and everyone that I may have inadvertently upset during my time here. To paraphrase Peter Quince "You should think I come not to offend, but with good will."

"Radagast is, of course, a worthy wizard, a master of shapes and changes of hue, and he has much lore of herbs and beasts, and birds are especially his friends."-Gandalf, The Lord of the Rings.

mods up [In reply to] Can't Post

I mostly avoid the Hobbit board because I don't want to know everything about the movie before I see it, and the occasional peek in the door has shown a much more rough and tumble atmosphere than I wish to endure. Hopefully this will prove to be oil on the troubled waters.

This is why I love TORN so much. Every site has rules about etiquette, but TORN actually enforces them. No wonder I keep on coming back for education, information and entertainment. And occasionally, to win over a lovely elf maiden for marriage.

You admins are the best, and have done such a great job for so many ages, you must have magic rings to keep it up so tirelessly, and long.

And no, Patty, this probably doesn't mean I'm going to come out of lurking more; I like it just fine, lurking here beneath the bridges between the forums. And the whole sunlight thing...you know....

Hi! [In reply to] Can't Post

Good to see you, sunlight or no.

And all the best to the lovely elf-maiden! We miss her.

Congratulations on that well-crafted reminder - [In reply to] Can't Post

it must have taken quite some time to put together, time which you probably don't really have! Your insistence on maintaining standards is what makes TORn such a special place. Thank you very much. I hope the words are taken to heart and things settle down now, and the unpleasantness passes. Love the title, too - very apt!
