Dear Anonymous...

Eleven days ago I put up this entry regarding theforce.net Forcecast contributor Jimmy Mac's comments regarding Roger Ebert's review of Fanboys, which has made some waves, something you can read more about here. Now, I didn't really expect anyone to comment on my little observation (which, I believe, didn't fall strongly one way or the other, although I did lean towards Jimmy's side of things), but someone did...

And didn't bother to leave their name.

Coward.

Here's what Anonymous said:

People don't live forever and to waste too much time on Star wars is wasting your life. I am sorry that it offends people, but it is true of a lot of things people send their time on. Baseball, Starwars, they all aren't things you will look back on your death bed and be happy you wasted years of your life on. Especially, if you are one of those people claiming George Lucas raped your childhood.


Dear Anonymous,

First, When refering to the Star Wars franchise, the first letter in both words are capitalized; and Two: Spend is spelled with a "p" between the "s" and the "e"; Three: read and take a look at this blog carefully. Does it look like I'd claim that George Lucas raped my childhood? Have you ever listened to The Forcecast? Does it sound like Jimmy would claim that George Lucas raped his childhood?

I should thank you for the News-Flash that "People don't live forever" and that involving my time, spare or otherwise, with Star Wars is a waste. If you think up some alternative things to do with my life, please let me know. I do take offense at your comment that baseball is a waste of time, since many people find it as a healthy form of recreation that helps to reduce the stresses of their day.

I would also like to say that you, dear Anonymous, are a coward for not leaving your name or a form of identification/user-ID when you made your comment in my post. You may not be The Worst Person in the World, but you could certainly be called a Pin-Head as well as a coward.

Thank you for reading,

Sincerely,

KA
