If you though that shit about the rat in Battlefield 3 was dumb:

http://kotaku.com/5859342/peta-calls-out-nintendo-for-fur+wearing-mario

Quote
The People For the Ethical Treatment of Animals are blasting Nintendo and their beloved gaming plumber Mario over what they claim is a message that it's OK to wear animal furs.

In Super Mario 3D Land, which was released this weekend, one of Mario's many power-ups is a Tanooki suit which grants him the ability to glide across the screen after jumps. The suit looks more like a one-piece jumper or costume than it does a fur, but PETA says the game is sending the wrong message to gamers.

Head, meet desk.  Desk, this is head.  I'm sure you two have much to discuss.

Every time I see PETA protesting against inconsequential shit in video games, I treat myself to a meat lovers pizza purely out of spite.

its as stupid as all the parents, thinking that it helps prevent amok runs if they could forbid and ban games like counter strike, horror movies and blackmetal

its hilarious, sad..and just shows how completly ignorant people can be to real problems.

yeah, and someone called it rumor and made a rumor thread to clarify he takes it as a rumor and not fact,
no fucking shit?? what's the point of posting rumors that have absolutely dick for evidence or come from a source that has no credibility whatsoever

Thoughts? That's something you'd masturbate to, whereas GBK's rumor was just that since the begining, a rumour. It's on the topic title.

if you're going to post rumors with absolutely nothing going for them (unlike someone with a track record like lupinko) then you might as well make up whatever and post it as long as it sounds plausible

Tiltin, what is sometimes up with you that you sound like a angry at everything guy in 80% of your posts, insulting people, swearing in nearly every sentence and write infantile crap like " i want to kill all da animals bla evil petas dumbshit bla blub"

or you post like a hyprocrite yelling around "NEW RUMOR!!! MORRISSEY IS IN THE NEW SMASH BROTHERS. MY FRIEND WORKS WITH SAKURAI AND HE TOLD ME THIS. THOUGHTS?"

thing is, i posted a thread about rumors. My mistake was maybe that i did not write some thing like a rule that the rumor should be from one or more popular game sites.
Or else, like you mentioned with your great example above, everyone could make up some bullshit.

The rumor i posted as the first example in the rumor thread was that EA tries to get origin to be THE online distribution marketplace for nintendo in western regions.

This rumor was posted on multiple game sites, from game informer to kotaku, ign and i guess more. 

4 people, including you find the rumor hilarious and point out that the original source is a relative unknown nintendo fan website. Hours later someone posts the thing  here in the gaming news thread.

So yay, the rumor  just leveled up to a game news. It wasnt mentioned as a rumor here, instead

Origin is the chosen one.

we just read "origin is the chosen one"

Is origin the chosen one? rly..(big miz rly)...

probably not. who knows..fact is nobody knows, and it is nothing less than bullshit but hey..grandmaster tiltin  decided that rumors can be posted in the game news thread.

great decision tiltin. +1 kudos yeah you are doing a great job and are an awesome  and smart admin ..one admin people can laugh about ..even if they get banned because poor tiltin  read a zelda skyward spoiler =(

dumb rumors like those don't deserve a thread. one post in the unimportant thread  is harmless.

He's just being laid back, nobody is as intense as to search every possible interent forum to try to confront and debunk the rumor starter. Yet you are so anal about having "quality content only" (quality = what YOU approve of) in the forums that you want to roll everything you don't like into big piles of "shit posts" (again, what is shit is defined arbitrarily by you), where you could just easily let threads run their course and die out if they aren't relevant enough.

since you seem to have a problem with the "shit thread", why don't you take it to feedback? are you aware that i'm not the only one that merges threads to that place? why aren't you complaining to the other staff members that do the same thing? or to the users that demand that threads be merged there?

sure, for your sake let's disregard that the rumor spread like wildfire and it had to be debunked by a mainstream gaming news site.

why don't you take my feedback? are you aware that the only one who looks like a power tripping dick is you? why do you try to deflect your post-elitist and try to shift the blame on somebody else? if your buddies jumped from a bridge would you do it too?
