I do pity him, I understood what the ring did to him the very first time i read the book, it started to touch me deeply when i read it for the 56th time. ehehehe, anyway, I think that he deserves all of our love because he is the one that got hurt with Frodo and all those who found or had to carry the Ring, Sam too. Since I like him so much I would was wondering if you guys here at the forum could do me a favor and call him Smeagol, I find that calling him Gollum is mean, because Gollum is not who the character really is. Smeagol wasn't made, in my opinion, to make us all wonder about Gollum, but to make us understand how material things can hurt us. And how the Ring really deeply hurt the poor Smeagol.
