Legolas_no_Miko: Welcome to the forum. :)
Swampfaye: Pay no attention to those people behind the curtain; the ones with the rope and balcony; their bite is worse than their bark. We don't have any Tolkien Thought Police hereabouts, so feel free to sound-off. As long as you present a rational argument (or irrational for that matter) and stick around to defend it, you can say almost anything you like pro or con about Tolkien.
Now if one were to simply say "Tolkien was a nailbiter" with no rational, they might expect some sarcastism in the following posts. Be that as it may, that's what makes this place interesting. :D
