"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.

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.

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...

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.
