: Thank you very much for the comment you little PIMP!

This comment was only comical, and certainly not designed to be taken seriously...please don't treat it as such. If you have been offended, than I apologize. As to YOUR comments, however, I am deeply insulted and angered.

: How dare you say that anyone who does not participate in your Pansey @$$ little contest is not a true indy fan. Perhaps people actually have a LIFE and don't have the time, or maybe contests made by fags like you just doesn't intrest them. What you are saying is everyone who doesn't take this stupid quiz of yours is not an indy fan?!?!?!?!

No, I was hoping for people to take a little interest. Yeah, I was poking fun, but please's ALL FOR fun and fun alone. To hear someone use words like "fags" really is unneccesary for a variety of reasons: 1.) I am straight, thank you...but I take offense at this because some of the best people I have ever known and worked with in my life (be it in college, film, etc.) just happen to be gay, and I don't appreciate such filthy and obviously hurtful comments 2.) Such language is crude, rude, uncalled for and not neccessary 3.) It demonstrates an eighth-grade locker room mentality that I hope surely doesn't reflect the sensitivity and tolerance of the young people in this country.

: Everyone, if you have time, do my contest! Sorry, no prizes though.

: Q. Who is the biggest nerd on the board?
: A. Adam

Are you expecting me to DISAGREE with this? Yeah, I am an Indy nerd...and I say it with pride. But I'm not trying to make myself out to be better than anyone else. Again, the contest was designed for FUN. I put a lot of work into it (and know that I had to do a LOT of research for this -- I don't know half this stuff off the top of my head), and I'm giving away my own personal Indy items to those who earn it by putting time into this thing. Why, you ask? I'll tell you: because I think it'd be fun. That's all.

I'm sorry to feel differently.

A very P.O.'d Adam

Whatever differences you may have with me, please let's just end this here and be done with it. I have no ambitions to start an argument with ANYONE -- and certainly not with another Indy fan, no matter what insults he/she throws at me. Out of respect to each other as well as the readers of this board, let's not take this conversation any further, okay?
