Oh how young and naive we were...

I like how the episode discussion threads for Samurai became dramatically smaller and smaller as time went by. This usually happens anyway but I don't think it happened so drastically.





Also, can we not forget that this whole exchange really happened:

For example, spelling "extreme" as "xtreme".

While "Deker" is not a word independent of its association with Power Rangers, the fact of the matter is that there is a correct way to spell it. This isn't arguable. There's no middle ground. "Deker" is correct and "Dekker" is incorrect. End of discussion.

It pisses me off that you and others are acting like I'm somehow A) stupid and/or B) committing a grievous offense by not using the official spelling.

Also, don't you dare bring up Xenotome's 'shame icon' response; that was clearly meant to be a jest, to which I responded equally in jest.

Owned. Fucking owned.
