    So happy TFWorld doesn't allow popularity and peer pressure to censor freedom of speech.

    Though I'm not a big fan of the whole "like/dislike" thing, I don't really see that as a lack of freedom of speech, unless you start sorting comments by popularity (like on Facebook, YouTube, etc.) - that's where the real problem comes in. If it's just people agreeing or disagreeing, I don't think it's a big issue.

    I'd never want to go into a FansToys thread again, though. :lol 

    Besides, they've already censored inoffensive words on the boards, one of which I got in trouble over, by getting around the shitty word filter to say it, because the perpetually offended can't handle three-letter acronyms

    They went to court and won against KO makers, not 3rd party. The KO makers were using facsimilies of their molds, packaging and straight up theft of their artwork and logos. Big difference. And yes, it is, and no amount of you saying otherwise will change it. Please read the news before commenting on it, thanks.

    No need to shill for Hasbro, they don't give a crap about you even if you do support them financially.

    There is a simpler solution. All they have to do is make a better product at a competitive price to 3p, if they can.

    3P is the only thing keeping me remotely interested in Transformers. I do have 4 kids though, and they like toys. I gaurentee that I will never buy another toy for any of my kids that says “Hasbro” if they were to shut down 3Ps. Legos are better for kids anyway.

    Because it unites all third-party-loving Transformers fans despite all the tribalism we tend to have in our community, to stand up against a common enemy: fuckwits.
