If you don't know what OH stands for then your aren't one.
I don't know who you are and we have never met, but opening a topic called: "Marie Fenring vs Ender Wiggin - SmackDown of the 6 year olds" is a dead giveaway about a severe lack of taste in literature and for me a reason to make as much fun about you as possible.
I also suggest you try to read Dune again and a bit more closely this time. You might end up understanding the word Sietch which is a rather important part of the book.
Wow. Tough Audience.
I do not feel I have a lack of taste in literature. But I do like to have fun and enjoy the works, even to the point of satire.
I don't understand why everything has to be so serious and why insults and incredulity come so easily to mind for some fans.
I do not mean to be insulting - I appreciate the works a great deal - but I'm not an obsessive fan. I'm just a fan. The type of fan who thinks it can be funny to watch blooper reels and out-takes for a good laugh or chuckle.
I would hope that there is room on various dune fan forums for a bit of levity along with the serious discussions that exist there.
Perhaps I'm simply not the type of fan who is welcome at either of the two sites I have initially found.
I don't understand why, but if that is the reality I face, then I will perhaps opt not to contribute much in the near future.
