Strangely enough that's what I thought it was called when I first saw it...I guess my mind played trick on me, because of the cover art.

Hello,

Well I come back to see that nothing has changed, your all still against the hardy boys. While I have read say 20 books in 3 days Casefiles and UB's including burning and RUNNING ON FUMES (not flames) they all seem as interesting, and then I come here and see that you all are still being whiners and making fun of the UB's come to your senses.

Each person is allowed to like the UB's and maybe some of you just have anti-opinions.. You know I am not going to vote in this poll since I have to say that there is no option that says "Neither" you know what? Consider the facts, not everyone here is a UB hater. Though maybe while I wasn't on this site you all transformed.. Did you? It sure seems like it... Anyways just reply to this and make sure you welcome me back to the site....
(Maybe not with open arms, cause I am not part of the UB Haters Cult) Whose your president by the way, are you going to be like Arthur Stench (Running On Fumes) and burn up books. (He burned up cars but you get the point.)

Running on Fumes was awful!
"Hey! Don't do that here. You'll mess up my bedspread."
Rolling his eyes, Joe sat on the window sill and started sawing.
"Thank you, Joe."

Hello,

Well I come back to see that nothing has changed, your all still against the hardy boys UB series. While I have read say 20 books in 3 days Casefiles and UB's including burning (It's Burned!-Bigfootman) and RUNNING ON FUMES (not flames) they all seem as interesting, and then I come here and see that you all are still giving your opions about the UBs, and according to me, that is very bad, therefore I must whine about it for no reason.

Each person is allowed to like the UB's but no one is allowed to say mean things about the UBs or I will come and over-exaggerate things and maybe some of you just have bad taste (anyone in my OPION has bad taste if they hate UBs).. You know I am not going to vote in this poll, I am just doing to drink some wine, since I have to say that there is no option that says "Neither" (depite the fact the Favorite UB polls have no nether option, yet I don't see you whining about that!-Bigfootman) you know what? Consider the facts, (Like the fact that your whining is wasting page space-Bigfootman) not everyone here is a UB hater (Though most are-Bigfootman) . Though maybe while I wasn't on this site you all transformed.. Did you? (You did, because I rember a time when you respected people who hated UBs and not makke a long post whining about them!-Bigfootman)  It sure seems like it... Anyways just reply to this and make sure you welcome me back to the site....(Ok, welcome to the form where people express there opions on the UB, I'm not sure you will like that, considering you are WHINING about people who hate the UBs!-Bigfootman)
(Maybe not with open arms, cause I am not part of the UB Haters Cult, I'm in the everyone who hate UBs stinks cult!) Whose your president (common sense-Bigfootman by the way, are you going to be like Arthur Stench (Running On Fumes) and burn up books. (No, you are going to be like Hardys in the GNs when they don't have gadgets and whine!) (He burned up cars but you get the point)

I know, this is a fake qoute, but I'm sick of of people whining and is claiming that everyone who dissagrees with them are whiners. bozonessinc, maybe you don't relize this, but in fact several Network fans voted in the Favorite UB polls, who you consider to be "Haters" including me. I am not a hater, that would mean I hate Wanted or Murder at the Mall, I do not.

Consider the facts, quite a few members don't like UBs, but still have a favorite book. You call them "haters". You seem to immply that the meaning of "whining" is saying the UBs were a bad series. You seemed to have typed this post up in five minutes. You pointed out my mistake only to make another right before it. You say we burn up books, I would neaver do that, nether would anyone else. You say we have transformered, it is you who has, into a whiner. Your post spells out, "Anyone who hates UBs stinks and is a whiner!" You come randomly into a poll and start blabbering, without checking your post. You say that we hate the Hardy boys, we only hate the UBs, we like the Casefiles, the Bluespines, and the Digests, you seem to be ignoring that, and the reason seems to be the "True Hardy Boys" are the Undercover Brothers in your opion, nothing else is, or I wouldn't have to add the words "UB series) into the sentence. All you are doing is flaming, which you means are just dissing people and sucking at it.

I created this poll because I thought it would only be fair to have a worst UB, not so people would come and start whining. Try stress meditcation, it helps.

bozonessinc, I find this post very un-called for. Why are you starting-up the whole ATAC vs. Network thing, again? While you were gone, that was gone, too. Think about that for a minute. Not to be rude, but maybe your the problem, here.

Also you say you won't vote in this poll because there isn't a neither option. Sorry, but that absolutely ridiculous! I don't say that because I think it's impossible for someone to find two or more books equally bad or equally bad, it's not (although it's highly unlikely and I'm willing to bet that if these two books were in a "favorite UB poll" together, you wouldn't not vote.). I say this because for some reason, you seems to take it as a personal insult, that someone you'd make a "worst UB poll". If someone made a worst Casefiles poll, I wouldn't start ranting and raving. As a matter of fact, on another forum a member posted a series of "worst Casefiles" polls, and I voted...and didn't cry.

Burned.

SDLagent, the majority of what you said was what I was going to say.

bozonessinc: Creating this poll isn?t an attempt to ?trash? the UBs. If we created a similar poll for the Casefiles, would you still say that?

Voting on this poll is just like voting for the ?favourites? poll. There isn?t really a difference. The results are just flipped, that?s all.

BTW, no one has argued about the UBs in a while so I don?t see the problem.

And maybe you?re the one in the cult because you are an activist for the UBs. See? That?s not very nice. Catch up on some posts and you?ll see it?s not a terrible war zone here.

People will take you more seriously when you can comment without the insults and without the apparent holes in your argument. Also, avoid using ?you all?. It generalizes people and makes it sound definitive when it?s not. It also kind of villainizes everyone here and that?s not fair.

I don?t have anything against you but be more careful with your posting. People will start picking on you. You don?t have to be defensive. What you like and what you don?t like doesn?t have to mean anything more than it does. It makes for an easy target and an easier fight when you start off like that. It reflects badly on you and your opinion.

It?s over, done, dead. Let?s be more productive. Okay?

Again, I?m just explaining a perspective here so please don?t take it personally. I'm not ganging up on you.

I think SDLagent and Blondie have said it better then me. Oh yeah, make sure your post is perfect before correcting other people's mistakes, bozonessinc. The book's name is Burned! Not Burning!

And look at the few good UBs topic and you will see that I am not a full hater, I have about six favorite books in the series, no reason to create a poll just to trash the UBs. Ok, maybe, maybe my little comment in the first poll may have sounded like that, but I was perity much talking about the "Triogies" that the athors won't stop making.

There will be no "Nether" option until the Favorite UB Polls get one. It's fair that way.
