I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt by taking him off my ignore list now that he's back from the realm of the banned.

hey man great post.
good to see someone point out that they're "just toys" and do it in a postive way.
nine times out of ten i can't point that out without it being served up with sarcasm a side of instigation
So yeah, anyways, great post.

Very well said Outbackk! I havent been here on the Tank long myself, but everyone I have messaged and whatnot have been great people! Its nice to have all these people with similar interest and love for a 4 inch piece of plastic! As soon as I start reading threads that are heading towards the negative, I back out and find something else to read. sometimes they are funny but like Outbackk said they are toys and for the most part a reconnection to our childhood. Lets enjoy these little pieces of plastic Crack that hasbro has given us again!

The movie is going to suck.
That being said, I really do agree Outback, the 'Tank is a fantastic place to hang out and there are a ton of really cool dudes around.
What we're seeing isn't so much from negativity itself, but the hostility behind it, which I think is what you were getting at. I trash the movie constantly, but usually with good humor. Others hate the choices made by Hasbro, but can joke about it. The problems only arise when it's taken too seriously and people stop having fun.
So thanks for the uplifting words, that 'Tank benefits greatly from guys like you!
And Mods, not to be a kiss-ass or anything, but you guys really do a pretty stellar job of maintaining the place.

Nice post Outbakk. Negativity here isn't anything new (most of us are probably guilty of getting carried away from time-to-time), but it does seem lately there have been a flood of threads about 'things you hate', 'who you hate', etc. After reading 15+ pages of 'hate' -- my fault, I could have just stopped reading, but I didn't -- I felt like I really didn't want to be a part of this site anymore, but there is a lot of good threads and fun stuff going on, so I'm "trying" to just stay away from certain threads and posters because I'm here to enjoy G.I.joe in all it's incarnations and have a good time. + there are some awesome customizers on here and missing out on what they can do would be a shame.

Sigh... nothing like a big TANK group hug thread! This thread really helps take the focus off all the anticipitory griping about releases thats been goin on. Who has looked at the Custom HISS contest? Holy Schnikes! There is an overload of talent on this site!!
Many pats on the backs to all the customizers on here! I find my self hanging out in the customizing section looking at peoples customs and being blown away at what you guys can do, and also stayin away from the bad juju threads lol.

The negativity was one of the first things I noticed about this site. And it was a big turn-off.
