TV by the numbers declares war

Post by Sue » Thu Mar 05, 2009 6:04 pm

First there was LeWar well now it looks like there is KROWar.
http://tvbythenumbers.com/2009/03/05/heroes-greg-grunberg-doesnt-like-knight-riders-chances/14011

Actor Greg Grunberg http://twitter.com/greggrunberg and website TVbythenumbers have declared an all out war on KRO.
Well lets see http://twitter.com/TVbytheNumbers their twitter is looking rather pathetic... And ours is looking rather cool http://twitter.com/kronline
I am deeply saddened that it has had to come to this, but let there be war then.

Create a webpage and make disparaging comments back then you can be fighting on the internetz. Honestly, just let it go and move on. Not worth it.

Actually what is really fun is when you can find the addresses of the people behind the computers then show up on their front doorstep with a baseball bat or some other blunt instrument

Dee Jay,

Whether it was a misguided attempt at humor or not, making physical threats towards people for disagreeing with our efforts to save the show is thoughtless at best, and does nothing whatsoever to help our cause. The same goes for you KnightCrue.

Given the nature of the comments that have been made thus far, I'm going to give this thread a few more hours to chart a more civil course, at which point, if it hasn't, I'll have no choice but to lock it.

It's a fake war intended to be light hearted and fun by the way. Be sure to read up on LeWar before proceeding.

If we can have some fun with it it could raise public awareness for KR and our campaign to give it a second season.

Sue,

Whilst you may have intended this to be a fake war, once people began threatening to use physical violence against those that don't agree with our desire to ensure the show remains on the air, the line between light hearted fun and completely unacceptable behaviour was crossed.

Look, I know that it may not seem like it, but I'm all for us getting a little payback given the way that we’ve been treated by certain elements of the media since September, so as long as we keep our eyes on the prize, I'm not going to stand in the way of anyone looking to make those who doubt our intestinal fortitude eat some good old fashioned humble pie.

Let's just do it right, and ensure it benefits our cause. :good:

yeah i saw it as humor, sorry to see that it got taken so seriously. it's no surprise that tvbythenumbers hates knight rider, they haven't said one nice thing about the show since it premiered :P

Good point!

Idol threats no matter wether we mean them or not is only going to make us look like a bunch of dicks. That said I would like to %&^$$ a %((*&$£ (&^%^& up their £@$^%$@£. :)

Maybe we should all read a little Sun Tzu ?

I think the whole thing is a tad on the stupid side to begin with. BUT if doing it means that we get more attention for KR then that could be good.
However, a bunch of people sending msgs back & frorth saying our how is better than your show or what not amounts to nothing more than playground fighting imho, and I am not going to create a new account somewhere just so I can electronically stick my tounge out at someone b/c they don't like something I do.
(I have already done that for KR w/Facebook which proved benefical for me personally but still...)

If you were to find were they live I think it would be fnu just to have a KI3T clone sitting out front with the scanner lights going back and forth and have it make some commits every onve in a while

And I read on IMDB that KRO was caught lying about KR08’s ratings in an effort to make the show seem more successful.


:? :shock: when did this happen? I must have been asleep and missed it.

Isn’t that neps guy your leader


Yeah like were all brainwashed following his cult, I mean honestly :roll:

No, KRO is obviously a corrupt website and it has zero credibility here on tvbythenumbers or anywhere else on the internet.


Ummmm I think he could be confused with KOR, easy mistake to make that.

I've heard it all now lol

Neps, Oh mighty Lord and Master we as your loyal disciples ask of you to please stop making juvenile attacks towards TV's Bythenumbers :mrgreen:
