Seems like you would subscribe to a sympathetic take on Charlie Brown's field goals as well.
Then you labour under a false assumption. Several, by the looks of it.
I didn't get involved for the sake of JMS. Honestly, I couldn't care less about the guy, one way or the other. Never met him. Never will. I did it because I'm a fan of B5 and I'd like to see it not seek into obscurity.
As for how JMS expresses his opinions; the guy has decades worth of experience in television. I'd take his word over random twitter people any day.
Also, it's worth remembering that this isn't JMS's campaign. All he's done is tell the fans "if you want more B5, it's up to you make some noise." That's it.
Honestly I don't see why you're fixating on the bloke. Nobody else is, so I can only conclude you take personal umbrage with the man, which to me is just sad and totally irrelevant to the discussion.
