    I was thinking of all the things people argue about here and I got to thinking... what is the dumbest thing to argue about in the history of things to argue about, TF wise?

    Personally, I think it's FIRRIB, RIRFIB, etc. The simple answer is... it depends.

    Also, don't start arguing about what the dumbest thing to argue about actually is. Thank you. :lol

    If I ever had the chance to update G1, I would reveal that Rumble and Frenzy take turns answering to both names, just to screw with the other Decepticons. I'd later reveal that they've been doing that for so long that neither remembers which was originally which.

    It's such a stupid and pointless argument. It got to a point where people were arguing over it on someone's Custom Thread.

    Even tho they can be a little dumb I can't help but find geek's like us projecting there sexual prejudices, insecurities and opinions onto toys, comics and cartoons deeply fascinating to read.

    Also, since it is touched on in some of the fiction, sometimes in ways that are meant to be thought-provoking, it's actually a very suitable, completely appropriate topic for discussion. It is only stupid because this excellent topic has already been discussed to death and can't go anywhere it hasn't already been.

    What about arguing about TFs in general? No argument I've ever witnessed was "smart"....it all became pretty dumb in my opinion.

    I hope this thread somehow turns into a bitching thread, so I can say this.

    I don't think there is a single topic which is dumb to argue about, as I have chimed in on RIRFIB and the origin of Cyclonus / Scourge and many other geek debates.

    What I do think is dumb is the way some people argue. By all means, weigh in and say your piece, and at times a sensible rebuttal or well argued point is lovely to see, but know when to stop arguing and move away from the argument. Having the last word isn't winning, sometimes it's just repeating the same banal point in capitals with excessive exclamations until everyone else gets pissed off with you.

    I agree, but sometimes people can't do that. It gets to a point where a simple discussion or debate becomes ridiculously mundane and mind numbing. Which is why I said it just becomes dumb.

    Discussions about Geewunners. Seriously. If you hate G1 fans, don't go to a Transformers forum.

    The whole Cyclonus and his armada debate. Because honestly? Does it even matter? Skywarp and Bombshell cease to exist as actual characters when Cyclonus is created, so does it really matter who was reformatted into him? I view Cyclonus as a completely separate entity from the other two, anyway. >.>

    ______-wunners at all. Whether it's Geewunners, Baywunners, Beastwunners, Aniwunners, any of them. As much as I have favorites, I detest the arguments where people try to invalidate anyone else's fiction/figure choices.

    I pretty much agree here. It's one thing to disagree, and then agree to disagree. It's another to just fly off the wall over stuff.

    I will say something I do find particularly ignorant: arguing whether something is versus "it's the way I remember". Much like the RiRFiB debate, it matters little what one person "remembers it being from childhood" versus simply what is. The Sunbow cartoon depicts a purplish-blue cassette as "RUMBLE" whereas the toys released from Hasbro are packaged as "FRENZY". I mean, call them "Wumble" and "Fwenzy" on your shelf all you like, but to deny what actually exists is simply narrow-minded and ignorant.
