Pokemon Rights Movement
« on: July 02, 2011, 08:17:59 pm »
Much of you should know about Team Plasma making a Pokemon Rights Movement. Now, let's discuss it. I think forcing Pokemon into tiny little balls and forcing them to hurt others of their race (not species....) until one faints from pain/exhaustion is evil and mean. thoughts?

Well i mean pokemon don't really exist you know. but I can't take you, N or team plasma seriously at your word because you all still stuff pokemon in little balls.

theoretically, of course.

Note: Just because somebody likes Pokémon doesn't mean he's a fanboy. A fanboy is someone who worships something as perfect and bash anything else such as Digimon or Neopets, for example, and someone who call other people names for liking something different than them.

If TI-BASIC is the language you're most comfortable with, then I'd suggest learning Axe first and then ASM. Axe is pretty much the perfect combination of TI-BASIC and ASM for people who want to ease into assembly programming.

no, that would be a bigot. Fanboy is a term used to describe a male who is highly devoted and biased in opinion towards a single subject or hobby within a given field. It's not a bad term unless you make it one, and Enu_N said he was a huge fan in his intro, dj

perhaps you haven't noticed but he does hold pokemon in quite significantly high regard. I've heard him talk of little else.

So true. Team Plasma is a noble cause. We're enslaving Pokémon, people!

In some ways it's still considered a rude word, though.

The bold part is what DJ_O described. samebull, if you just want to argue, don't do it here.

I'll admit that he was somewhat setting himself up to be called a highly devoted fan, but the way it was said and definitely WHERE it was said was most of the issue, IMHO.

Yeah true. Some people take offense to being called a fanboy, since it designs a lot of bad people. I also do not see how talking mostly about Pokémon and nothing else is a problem either, as long as the person doesn't cause any troubles on the forums. In any case, calling people a fanboy or names is at risk of causing trouble.

I stand by my earlier application of "fanboy" and I'll point to this topic to support it's dictionary definition.
http://ourl.ca/11927/225339;topicseen#new

I didn't see Enu_N taking offense, fanboy is not a derogatory term, and the argument that followed was baseless and pointless.
End of line.

The term "fanboy" has and is used negatively on the internet, that's why people responded to it in such a way. Omnimaga is meant to be a hostility free environment, and people want to be sure it remains such. I can see that you didn't use the term in a negative way. I think that we should all just move on, I see no need to dwell on something that wasn't meant to be negative or hurtful, right? :)
