    herkulease, rather than throw the slam out there, you may ask if he got the cables. Not everybody received hdmi cable with their receivers. I don't believe we did and I know of others who did not.

    Well, it has been rumored that Wil Wheaton is gay.

    Not that there's anything wrong with it.

    Senator Craig, are you busy? :D

    Please see post #3 in this thread, and remove my quote from your comments, if you must post such a thing at all.

    Oh, lighten up. You're the one who used the facetious term of "man crush," and I don't think anyone took THAT the wrong way.

    Humor is good for the soul, and it wasn't directed at you, but at Wheaton.

    I'm sure your if you had a blog, it would be chocked full of enlightened information, witticisms and amazing content. Seems to me, you pretty much showed what being rude is all about from the start. Your first post was hostile, and just the type of thing that gives forums like DBStalk a bad name among the general population. Totally counterproductive, whether Wheaton was a celebrity or not. Hope you learned something as a result. I'd say your posts were the equivalent of shooting off your mouth in the corner bar after a couple of drinks.

    The difference being, sweet-cheeks, is I was poking a little fun at some minor celebrity worship amongst the DBS crowd, whereas you were calling Wheaton gay and dragging me into it. I don't want any part of it. If the distinction is too subtle for you, I will gladly take it to PM and be very blunt.

    Hey, Darling, I wasn't "calling" Wheaton gay; I was repeating an often-laughed about rumor and bringing Senator Craig into this.

    Wil has posted he's got it fixed. He followed advice to unplug his HDMI cable and reboot his TV then plug in the HDMI again. Worked like a charm.

    By bringing it up, you've added a ton of readers on this site who will now have that image planted in their minds. It's libelous and by spreading it you can actually be sued for defamation of character. It's like the girl in high school. Somebody starts a rumor that he slept with her and before long, everybody thinks she's loose. It should never have been brought up. If he is and wants to say so, that's his business, not anybody else's.

    Sheesh. Seems like man_rob is the only one to catch the Simpsons reference. I disliked the Wesley Crusher character as much as the next guy. He was a supreme dork and a guy everybody loved to hate.

    But ya'll are showing some dorkiness to by not catching the Simpsons reference.

    I'm closing this thread, because of your requests, and also because there is no call for insulting anyone at all. Mr. Wheaton, if you are reading this, you have this site's apology for any comments made here.
