    I agree with everything you just said, but for one thing. At the end you mention respect and listening to others viewpoints, but should I have to listen to the viewpoints of the people you described? If they aren't hearing what I am saying then should anyone give them a voice? I mean that it is becoming so difficult to remain tolerant of the intolerant. It is becoming a cycle. Be tolerant of people like this until their ignorance and hate makes you one of them.

    But that was a great rant sarthaz. It is my burden that I am becoming intolerant of the intolerant and those who bounce back and forth between tolerance and intolerance on an hourly basis with lies and half truths to keep everything off balance for their own personal gain.

    I remember that all too well.
    Also the abuse JMS got, especially on Twitter. I was disappointed when he finally ceased all talk about Sense8. Not in JMS, of course, but in the idiots pressuring him into making that decision.

    Wow, a twitter user going under the handle of 'Screen Identity' seems to have pushed JMS over the edge. I read back through the thread, many of the original tweets from the source are now deleted, but JMS responses remain. It seems that Screen Identity took an ultra hard line on B5's ethnic / gender / diversity / race and casting. All this with no appreciation of when the show was made. I have to note with these things CONTEXT is KEY.

    JMS stays very level until pushed too far. I think he did well to stay civil for that long, talk about pushing an agenda whilst removing ALL CONTEXT and when your target is clearly progressive as hell. Way to alienate people and fulfill just about every echo chamber SJW cliche that we have forced upon us by right wing idiots. I sometimes have to facepalm at the militant Sense8 fans who seems to struggle with any other viewpoint other than their own.

    Yeah, really nothing earth-shattering. Maybe there'll be some stories come out after June 1? We'll see!

    "@straczynski Hi I just have 1 small question if you can consider the topic small.

    Has they ever been an interest besides from fans for a show set on Vorlon?"

    Answered JMS (second last tweet this early morning at 1:26 AM):
    "I don't think we could afford to send a crew that far on location."

    1. Had a fun idea. With #Babylon5 coming in June to @PrimeVideo this is the first time in about 15 years the show's been available for viewers to stumble upon for the first time. That gives us two kinds of viewers: newbies with lots of questions....

    2. ...and original viewers (henceforth the First Ones) revisiting it who also have answers. Let's make this account Ground Zero for the two sides to meet in neutral territory for mutual enlightenment. So put the word out near and far to newcomers: Party at Joe's Place!
    JMS is taking questions about B5 on twitter to celebrate the Amazon thing. Loads of stuff in his feed recently. Jan, are you ready to be real busy on Twitter?!

    I suggested either:

    - at least three tweets updating us on all the straczynski-verses

    or

    - his favorite passage from this autobiography "Saved by Superman".

    We'll see...

    JMS 10k tweet

    JMS last tweet after midnight:
    "I'm now 3 twitterings shy of 10K tweets. Any significant questions that should be addressed, suggestions as to what I should speak about or do (other than "knock it off") in tweet #10,000?"

    You all with a twitter account: tell the great maker what should his 10k tweet about...
    But hurry up. This tweet will be coming very soon.
