    He must be joking.... look at this, He wrote this later:

    Why are you people getting irate about this petition? There are a few simple facts here: (1) The sequeal was only completed recently. Movie studios dont make movies unless they thing they're make money off them; (2) Mr. Jackson named the sequal "The Two Towers" to capitalize on the 9/11 tragedy. (3) All this ranting about some "JR Tolkein" has nothing to do with the movie--they are only similarly named. If you have something to say to me, say it directly. You know where to e-mail me: slashdotwidener@yahoo.com. Screaming cowards don't even use your real neams.
    Either he is a lame joker or a really really stupid person.
    I mean "this ranting about some "JR Tolkien" has nothing to do with the movie".
    He just cant be serious.

    3597 Abusive or insulting messages to the petition starter. I haven't read them all but I assume the majority are abusive.

    This guy can't be for real anyway, going by what he said which was quoted by ErionD.

    This guy must be a friggin' moron not to know who JR Tolkien is anyway.

    I hope Frodo comes and kicks his ass.

    I think we need to bulldoze that tower in Piza too. The leaning tower is clearly a symbol that Italians hate the victims of 9/11.

    what he should do is recast the part of Frodo as a 757. fools

    Tolkien was one evil Nostradamus mutha. He KNEW Bin Laden would pull off that plane stunt, and he still went ahead with that crass title 47 years ago. The c***.

    Out of the first 1000 or so entries only a maximum of maybe 50 are genuine, the rest are voided. Then the flame war begins.

    It makes some of this boards previous (and even current) encounters look civilized and polite formal debate.

    I think I want to email the person who set it up and say something like, you are joking aren't you? This was just a big hook with a big meaty worm and you wanted to see what you caught wasn't it. But haven't the guts in case he's actually genuine.

    And if he finds JRR Tolkien's title a gross offensive act, he should possibly come over to the UK to discuss real offensive films such as U-571, The Patriot, Braveheart, Titanic and unfortunately The Great Escape (Which is still a class film)
    Lead me not into temptation... I can find it myself.
