okay we all know the main reason we dwell in mostly vs. topics as of late: To have some fun watching our favorite characters duke it with each other in a fight, big or small and some entertainment debating about who we think or feel should win. You know the rules and guidelines. However, as much as there is art and fireworks in rumble matches, there are numerous times where we can feel disappointment, sadness, rage, bitterness, intense rivalry, frustration, confusion, shock, and insanity, especially when our favorite side loses or gets hated on a lot by the public.

The vs. threads/forums can be a cruel mistress for sci-fi/comic fans everywhere. Or at least for people who take things seriously on daily basis, (e.g. me). Even for people who do not take it THAT seriously may still feel the above emotions at times.

So, ITT: We list some of the things we hate most in vs. threads/forums. it can either be based on what you logically think or how you feel, AND NO CROSS-EXAMINING/NITPICKING OTHER PEOPLE'S LISTS. I'll start.

1. I hate it when SOME people shoves the necessity for feat logic down my throat and reject abc logic at every turn.

2. When my favorites get little to NO respect or credit at all, no matter how many times someone may try and back them up or support them.

3. When my favorites consistently bashed on and hated by the crowd every day. I know people have a right to their opinion, but if it's still sad if such a thing happens to you.

4. Getting myself into huge (and sometimes inevitable) flame wars over whose series would win/is superior.

5. When most age-old rivalry battles tend to almost always seem to favor that one particular side, (e.g. Star Wars vs. Star Trek).

6. When most fanboys of the winning/overrated side (unless it's my side, which I'm extremely guilty of) get openly arrogant, cocky, smug, conceited, and obnoxious with the losing/underrated side and/or its fanboys (e.g. SF vs. DBZ). Especially when they get more excessive than I would. This is perhaps the absolute worst thing of all time any fan or fanboy has to deal with.

7. When in age-old rivalries (e.g. Pokemon vs. Digimon), you have to go through all the unnecessary shock and disappointment to find out that your side would not only logically get stomped by or lose to the other, but it isn't as strong as you formerly thought it was. The worst part of that is if even the fanboys on your side didn't care about the seriousness of the loss.

8. Whenever I'm arguing on the side of a video game character (against a non-video game character), I have to go through the major hassle of dealing with arguments based on video game mechanics. Pokemon is perhaps the biggest victim of all time when it comes to having to rationalize your own side.

9. Whenever people put up certain company vs. company match-ups (ie Nintendo vs. [insert other company here]) and I swear to God that these are probably the most annoying type of topics there is, if it gets too far.

more to come...

now you guys list yours.

I have only one complaint, when people don't know who a character is, they vote for the other side making it a popularity contest. They don't use any logic or even bother to go to wikipedia!

I've thought of one other complaint. The whole entre "DBZ is FTL" deal. It gets really annoying after a while.

'I'm going to die; if this wasteland doesn't kill me the Avatars will. I'm the last Technomancer; as I go so goes my culture.' The thought was serene, not fearful at all. If he was going to die, he'd die fighting; he'd make sure that the Technomancers were never forgotten. Morshan Sakru: The Last Technomancer would be a name all Avatar would shutter at the thought of for etenity. Morshan now knew what happened to a man who had nothing left to live for but vengence: he became a monster.

Wait, did I say that they weren't FTL? Because I don't recall even stating my opinion. All I said was that the arguments got annoying.

Guys, can we get back on topic? We can save the "DBZ IS FTL!: proven fact or fan fact" for other forums.

To the first person that replied to this topic: I agree, though in real life, it's even worse.

Ripper, you are the man! That's one of the things to like about CBUB. Someone to almost consistently agree with you on the win/loss of a character.

Okay firstly, let me go through this a second time for everyone. Contrary to popular belief, the term "fanboy" isn't necessarily intended to be a pejorative connotation. I perceive the term as no different than addressing someone as a "fan", albeit just slightly more dramatic, extreme, or enthusiastic.

There now does every Havenite here get it now? Cause if you don't, I am not repeating a third time.

Secondly, I directed that example to the match-up of SF vs. DBZ in general, not to a particular member of a forum like you. So please set yourself free of confusion and misunderstanding.
