Lol. I can't say that I hate ninjas, but I'm not really fond of them either. Simple reason to. I've found that most ppl who think they're ninjas tend to be full of attitude and of themselves. I would prefer to be a knight or crusader over a ninja any day.

Okay, but what would a knight do when a ninja comes out of nowhere and stabs a poisoned kunai into his neck? ;) jk. It's about changing my XBOX Live gamertag.

Oh Raven... You do not understand the power of a true ninja. All the stereo-tipical ninjas today in movies (The Last Samurai is an example) DO fail... horribly. But a true ninja wouldn't have you know he was there until it was too late. That is the awsomeness of a ninja, not to mention the acrobatics and escapes (similar to Assasin's creed).

I could say things about that like "he is a highly trained assassin, not a ninja" but thats just splitting hairs so I'm not going to. Oh, and Ninja? The way you talk about ninjas is in fact not a ninja, it is more of the assassin field and I'll tell you why. Ninjas were originially just regular joes like you and me who didn't like their fuedal lords in places like japan and such, but also needed to develop a way to counter their samurai escorts. Thus, a ninja, a TRUE ninja is nothing more than a peasant who happens to be good ambushing a group. Ok, so i really wasn't exactly splitting hairs earlier, but that is beside the point. Most of their weapons were simple adapted farm tools.

Ninjas were mercs, nothing else. And no, we are not making a replica of "Thoughts on Ninjas..." here. Everyone from the UESP that was around when that was, should know where this WILL lead. A 10 page long agonizing dillema of 8 people telling 1 person the faults on ninjas while that 1 person keeps reiterating themselves.

As for the topic, no. Just no.

*holds head in hands* You obviously don't understand, nor have the intent to understand, so I'm not even going to argue. Ninjas FTW! *smoke bomb* ;)

1) Check your inbox.
2) You're straying from your own topic. We're talking about GamerTags not ninjas.

1) It was ninja-hating it was a history lesson.
2) It's about changing the GamerTag, not the content. I can have a topic about changing my GamerTag to "HailSatanx666" and it would have nothing to do about morals and guidelines rather than actually, changing the GamerTag.

Now stray off from this. You change it or not, there's 3 for yes, 2 for no.

I'm going to lock this as it's now just arguing about ninjas and it's been open long enough for anyone who was going to vote to vote.
