Perhaps understadable. However, it's just a Tolkien reference with a movie icon photo....we all have serious endeavors and more trivial hobbies. Our hobbies sometimes define us better. I prefer the Dune series including new stuff the Lord of the Rings, but I am unique.....

So Say We All.

Is demoted the right word?

Definition of demote
transitive verb
1 : to reduce to a lower grade or rank
demote a student
was demoted from major to captain
2 : to relegate to a less important position
a pitcher demoted to the bullpen

Do we have to start a new vote??? lol
A sarcastic remark toward a Groucho Marx’s letter of resignation to the Friars’ Club: “I don’t want to belong to any club that would accept me as one of its members.” JMO

SoG gets my Vote.

Cool. I’m chuckling over the Groucho reference. Thanks.

Yeah, I picked Gimli, Son of Gloin as my GIM icon/avatar/alter-ego because I am a LOR fan, first off. Love the book and Peter Jackson’s phenomenal rendering of the stories, which he unbelievably improved on, in my opinion. As far as Gimli is concerned, specifically, he is by far my favorite character of the series and he is a dwarf, making him a member of a mining tribe. Although the metal called Mithra* is named in the books and movies as the primary precious metal, it’s easy to imagine that significant quantities of gold and silver were mined by the dwarves, also, making them honorary Gunners.

*Mithril, not mithra. I, of all people, should know better.

Thanks, Scorpio, this is very cool. An undeserved, but very appreciated honor. I will try to live up to my membership in this club and behave accordingly. Thanks again, to every GIM member who voted for my inclusion and to everybody who posted in this thread. You are all an extraordinary and intelligent bunch, which is one of the primary reasons I spend so much time here.
