The only waste of time and space here is your continuous attempts to tear me down. Your myopic ignorance is stunning. Fetts, Mandalorians? SO KARKING WHAT THEY'RE CALLED? They're in the films. I never ARGUED that the "term" was used in the film. You're making up an argument that doesn't exist and then trying to ban me for it. Nice.
We see Y-wings in the film, we see A-wings and B-wings, but you don't karking OFF anyone who refers to the TERM "A-wings" and "B-wings" as arguing or discussing EU. Those terms are NOT in the films, yet we can clearly discuss how they fly or what their tactical purpose is per the films. You dont force others to call them "ships" or deny that they have no aspect in canon. What a retarded, ignorant double standard. (Though, if would start enforcing such anal rules, I would gladly acquiesce.)
How you cant see that point is beyond me, but I guess when you dont even properly interpret the points I'm making...its easy. I agree with your karking point. "Mandalorian" ISN'T IN THE FILM. I'm NOT arguing it. I'm saying aspects of Mandalorians are canon. The EU concept is derived from canon.
Whats embarrassing is that you are using your modship to ENFORCE your point of view on what we both clearly agree is the most irrelevant issue. I have wasted no ones time. Speak for yourself, not "everyone." I respect the rules here. I dropped EU discussion when queeq asked. I don't respect high-on-power hypocrites who expect their faulty opinons not to be debated.
I've made my points. I was done with this osik days ago (i dont even remember when it was). You keep continuing it. I have not broken any rules here. Queeq can say "Ordo, you're an idiot" and we can both move on. Why can't you do the same?
Its a culture, not a race, which shows how unqualified you are to discuss the topic.
Romans made and wore Roman armor. It was part of their military and social culture. If you're in the 2nd century and see someone in Roman armor, it'd be a safe bet they're Roman. Armor is highly cultural.
Culture judgement are made ALL the time in Star Wars...look at the Nemoidians.

First of all, the ship terms are used in the scripts and so forth, not to mention the marketing and various official discussions of them- whereas Mandalorian was only ever, EVER used in the EU as a descriptive term and has absolutely no bearing on then films whatsoever. NONE. That's a pretty feeble position you have adopted there. Everyone knows they are an EU creation. Meanwhile, in analysing the Fetts you are just analysing two people- not a culture, or a race, or any such thing. Just two people who share a style in armour, and that only beause son as following the father. Meaningless in connection to anything wider. The whole idea that the armour means anything, that there is any culture involved, that it is anything other than just armour Jango designed and/or bought, the idea that he is anything other than just a lone (though talented) bounty hunter... all EU. The whole Mandalorian thing is EU. You've lost perspective
The rest of your post is just again waste of time nonsense because I have correctly called you out on something again. And trying to pretend we were agreeing- when a look at your previous posting makes it pretty darn obvious that we were not, and you are just now trying to backtrack- So as said, I am now giving you your official warning. Keep it up and it is a ban. The same goes for if you make another one of your attacks on the moderators.
The only person embarrassing himself here is you. What you say about breaking rules and respect is neither here nor there- you have plainly broken the rules by arguing the point and attacking the mods. Next time- ban.

What fight? Mod fight? Hardly. And the dragon remark was a joke, Ordo. And a reference to a favourite movie of mine, quoting one of my fav lines. Consider it an honour. Mandalorians are EU, that's the end of it. No need to fight over it. Ush and I agree on the matter.
As for Aurra Singh, yeah, I'd expect her wanting the lightsabre as a trophy or something.
Nac, you really need to know when to butt out. You're antagonizing again, as always. Jac, don't join in.
And same here, I was slightly annoyed that they didn't elaborate on Aurra Sing. And yet I'm glad she wasn't the focus of the episode; Cad Bane made a convincing villain! If it had been all about Aurra going 'Oh, I want the Jedi lightsaber!' then we wouldn't have been focusing on the threat of Bane. He was obviously in charge, no matter what skill Sing has.
