Then that would be acknowledging it rather than ignoring it, wouldn't it?

I meant to send to New Line. You know, they get a 1000 person strong petition to change the title, then a 10000 strong petition to keep it as Two Towers.

"Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups." (t-shirt)

It never ceases to amaze me how people can jump to conclusions based on nothing more than their own brash instinct and a dearth of factual information. The fact that people like this not only exist, but thrive is definitive proof that Darwin was wrong. Sometimes I think the human race is devolving. Reading petitions like that only strengthens that thought.

>( doofuses.

Ahahahaha, some of those signatures are great. Too bad so many of them are "False Signature Voided" Ah well.

Maybe Jackson should edit out all the weapons and put walkie talkies instead. Worked for Spielberg, right?

As someone whose father was working in the building across the street from the WTC when it was bombed in 1993...

As someone whose father was working in the building across the street from the WTC on September 11th...

As someone whose father is still traumatized from those events...

I would simply like to tell those petitioners to get over their idiot selves. This is what happens when friends let friends go too far with P.C.

This thread (Click Here) has a petition that beats it out, easily. If it's still around, that is.
Actually, I think they should combine all online "geek" petitions into one that demands George Lucas allow Peter Jackson to direct Episode 3, but not before he renames The Two Towers while getting Tazz a bigger push in the WWF.

It's literally amazing how fans of just about ANYTHING online think they have even a modicum of "power" over creative types.

Well. Papercuts is right. That was just wrong. 5280 signatures! what the hell? i was reading a couple and it seems every few there was one on there saying why have this petition..... its so stupid. Why? What the hell is wrong with people? DO THEY NOT REALIZE when the put that signature spot in there objecting that they actually add to the number count?. damn

As for THE TWO TOWERS people should do their research a little better. At least the website put some explanation up there about how the title came about. The person who started the petition sounded like a moron in his complaint. IF YOUR GOING TO COMPLAIN AT LEAST KNOW WHAT YOUR COMPLAINING ABOUT. And a 1080 signatures? Damn people.... the series is a classic. You dont change the names just because people misunderstand everything and dont bother to learn the truth. Stupid.

Morons.

Next petition will be to rename the old Hakeem Olajawon-Ralph Sampson combo from the 80's. Can't call them the "Twin Towers" anymore as it may offend someone. Same goes for Tim Duncan-David Robinson today.

The movie "Twins" and the Minnesota Twins baseball club will also be renamed, as will all Tower Record stores, the Tower of Power horns, and anyone with the last name Towers.

I love the "The title is clearly meant to refer to the attacks on the World Trade Center" line...

Idiots.

Whew, thank goodness that Akeem and the BigBossman (known as The Twin Towers) never won the Tag Titles or the WWF will get heat and then have to mess around with their history. We all know how much they hate doing that.

(image removed)

ahhh akeem (the big fat chicago gang memeber who found his "African" roots, with Rev. Slick and the abusive Cop Bossman. Ahh the good ol' days when the WWF *wasn't* offensive

Here's an interesting signature from the Star Wars Petition:

Holger Urbanek I don't want a Special Effects Saga!

Now is he for or against Peter Jackson? Cause both he and Lucas have used a hell of a lot of Special effects....

Oh, and SerWolfe, don't worry about the 1080 signatures. Most of them are pages and pages of "False Signature Voided" like I said before.

I love some of those sigs...

"I can't believe the insensitivity of some people in this petition. The least New Line can do is postpone the movie for a while so that the country had time to grieve. Have they no shame!?"

It's been somewhere around 9 months since the attacks. Shouldn't they be over trivial things like names of movies by now? It's obvious it has no correlation.

Edit: I sounded insensitive...
