ok, u do make a good, reasonable point, albeit the darts at people who believe otherwise. honestly, we who say network r being a whole lot less assholey about the whole thing. we are not shutting down the other side. we are not insulting the other side. we are not demanding the other side differs to our viewpoint. we are merely stating what we believe and why. you do that, and then u do those other things i just mentioned. please keep it polite, u get lots more people on ur side that way than by behaving like an asshole.
here r some examples:
Eh... I'd guess Trader Defense Network, myself.
yea, but trader defense network has more of a ring than trader defense navy. i always thought it was the former too. not for any particular reason, just a hunch
[quote who="C.I." reply="59" id="2403462"]I was thinking it might all be latin, but then I thought to hell with that idea! Trader Defense Network all the way.
then we have...
USS might not have Navy in it but IJN as mentioned earlier does. Which proves its more then plausible that thats the meaning.
but then u say...
more then plausible is just saying it has just as much a chance of it being the actual word as network.........wasnt saying it was MORE likely then the others.
seems like u actually did. but then we get to the i-shut-u-down posts:
Theres no reference to a network in any of the lore. They do refer to Defense Forces..........so i doubt they refer to their military as a Defense Network.
um okay. i guess the Frigates (a naval term) a crusier (a naval term) a battlecrusier (a naval term) a battleship (a naval term) a dreadnought ( a naval term) Fleet (a traditionally naval term) doesnt stand as evidence of what the N is then.
But the make believe Fanfic Marines, Army and Air Force does................................................
i'm pretty sure there isnt a mention of ground troops for the TEC at all, which i think you were getting at, allegiance. no need to be an ass about it though. and just because it uses naval terms doesnt mean it is called a navy. think of Halo. UNSC is United Nations Space Command. no navy there. unless i suddenly lost the ability to read.
again, nothing to back it up. Just your opinion, your only arguement is its the future, which doesnt mean squat since you cant prove that thats the mentality of future humans. Trader Defense Navy rolls off your tongue as easy as Network. The TEC isnt a Television Network, its a damn military. IE Navy.
"which doesnt mean squat since you cant prove that thats the mentality of future humans." You disprove your own argument right there.
well...this took up a good chunk of my time. and now i feel vented. do u feel that i vented? good.
