You know there's no reason to call someone a zealot. I do have strong opinions when it comes to Thor this is true. What gets me more upset than anything are people who are clearly haters but disguise themselves as "intellectuals".

I'm sorry but there is nothing "intellectual" about arguing over a characters state of being, which has been well established, in the MU.

Or downplaying a feat with some of the most repetative and Intuitively ignorant arguments ever thought up.

I'm sorry but those are by definition trolling tactics. They have no merit. They are not some deep attempt at making an intellectual debate. Nor are they a deep discusion on the oppossing duality of, for an example, Thor and Dr. Donald Blake. They are, to put them in their very simplest form "NuH-Uh Thor can't do that/isn't that" comments.

If you see another purpose behind such statements then I appreciate you can try to look past the obvious and see nothing more than an attempt at a "debate". I can not do so.

I am not fooled by some attempts at appearing genuinely interested in a deep sophisticated debate about this character. It is not only apparent, but excruciatinly so, that the posts were not about debate but about attempting to tell one Thor fan why he was "wrong" and nothing more. Which is hysterical in it's very hypocrisy as most of what has been said in opposition, has in fact, been Wrong.

I have no problem with you Jazz. As I see it, you are attempting to keep things civil. But imho it is incredibly rude of you to call other Thor fans Zealots. While praising two individuals who were clearly posting in this topic, not for an intelligent, peaceful debate, but were in fact in here to tell a fan why he was "wrong", in an out right display of unabashed arrogance.

There are those here who DO take things to EXTREME extremes (which is the definition of ZEALOT). There can be NO contestation of that!!! (because it is true, and I have fallen victim to it myself)

I am an EXTREME HARD-CORE Thor fan myself, but I try to temper it with regard to civility and with regard of NOT diminishing and/or weakening my POV's "power" in the eyes of those who would "debate"/dialogue me.

I realize there will always be those who do not share my opinion and I do respect that, but by taking things to extremes only "fuels" fires and perpetuates uncivilty in posts and makes the majority of we Thor fans look bad.

I was not thinking of anyone in particular with the Zealot comment, but as the saying goes: "The actions of a few can ruin it for the whole". The comment (IMO) can/should/ and will be applied to both sides of the fence when applicable.
