Also, it was pointed out that the post that started this topic here on the Disney Rumors and News board was neither a rumor nor news.

Some replies were brief (including the post that started this topic). Some (such as mine) were more wordy. Some included humor.

There were no personal attacks and nothing that was actually rude (unless read with a rude inner voice).

Disagreeing with a discussion point in a discussion topic on a discussion board is discussion, not rudeness.
We were discussing disboards in general, not this discussion. It got brought up.

They are the ones that have turned into the trolls.
See, it was about the boards and people's behaviors on them as a whole. Not this one thread

Once you realized that the post was made in the wrong area, why not just create a new thread and say "oops...wrong forum...check the new thread here..."

Seems like that would have wrapped-up the discussion pretty quickly.

I can see how some of the early posts come across as being a little rude. But you have to appreciate the context under which those comments were made. The discussion was already a page long before it was made clear that the intent was to have a speculative discussion rather than reporting some news or rumor. Early posters could only take it at face value.

Straying off topic for a few posts really doesn't bother me as long as your posts contain some sort of relevance to the thread, but I still haven't seen your opinion on these things, just posts about how much the people here suck.

I'm not trying to be rude, really, and I'm sorry for your past experiences around here, just state a matter and go back to the topic. Also, try not to double post, if you're quoting multiple posts, there's a nifty "multi-quote" button at the bottom to span multiple points.

Not seeing the "fit"

To the OP's question, I'm not seeing how a Starbucks acquisition would fit into what is essentially an entertainment/merchandising corporation. Perhaps I'm just short sited.

Your absolutely right I don't either, ESPN brings merchandise and other promotional gains, as ABC family does... The only thing Disney could do with Starbucks is put their label on coffee... Like I said it was meant to be a speculation topic that went wrong

I agree

I don't have a problem with Disney buying Starbucks if they want to because the coffee offered now is terrible. I do however feel that if bringing in their coffee means that Disney has to change or do away with iconic shops or restaurants then Disney needs to rethink about it.

you know what i was wondering? and this is just based on the fact that starbucks is going to be in disney wolrd...

what type of things will they sell in starbucks? aside from the usual starbucks stuff, i mean.

i'm a little sad to see main street bakery go. we'll be arriving in february - main street bakery will not be there when we get there. but we'll also be there before starbucks opens up.

we'll be using our free dining plan - so say starbucks will be open when we arrive. does that mean i can use a snack credit for one of there venti custom-made drinks that costs nearly $8 (at least here in canada)?

i know - probably not going to happen.

are they going to have some disney-style branding in starbucks?

just questions i'm throwing out there.

It won't look much different when you do see it. They will do some minor interior construction and put a small sign on the window or facade.

They are NOT tearing down the building to put up this:

If I'm not mistaking I read somewhere on here that they will still sell some of the favorites at Starbucks. Then have the bulk of what main street bakery had somewhere in the new fantasy world.

no - what i meant was, according to my prior post (2 posts ago) that i'm there in between the closing of one and the opening of the other.

i didn't think they were going to tear it down - but assume they will make some changes in the look for a 2 month shut-down period.

"Disney to buy starbucks????"

Whilst I don't agree with the ensuing DISer bashing on either side of whichever argument is being DIScussed, I do feel that the title of the thread, in this case, and the opening post were inappropriate.
As has been suggested, it is neither Rumour (yes I'm a Brit) nor News but it really doesn't warrant the flaming and antagonism going on.

Anyway... lets all get fluffy again, if a Starbucks in WDW is all we've got to complain about, things really ain't that bad are they?

(and I've realised my ambition to use 4 smileys in one post)

Wow, so instead of just letting the post die people have to be rude and attack the OP? If you don't like what he posted why not just NOT respond? The OP didn't do anything wrong but everyone that attacked him did and that seems to be the norm in the Rumors and News forum if you don't like what someone says attack them? This site is supposed to be fun and help people with Disney questions and the Rumors and News forum should be exciting and fun right now with Star Wars, DHS rumored expansion, AK expansion and Fantasy Land expansion and TT opening.
