:Um... re-reading, I don't think that's it either. There's no evasion at all -- just Verity and Jimmy came scrambling back right as Ratchet was about to answer, interrupting him. Rhetorical questions are not always bad, but retardedly trivial ones do tend to creep in sometimes, and pruning's not a bad thing in such cases. -- [[User:Repowers|Repowers]] 03:03, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

::I agree with your point about the rhetorical questions. Some boneheaded things that come up in the fiction need to be questioned. However, a lot of these posted questions are fan speculation, or are trivial points that only the original author could answer. This seems like an example of fan speculation to me--[[User:Suzyprime|Suzyprime]] 03:12, 12 September 2008 (UTC).

:::Fair enough. I just thought that a deal was made out of having Ratchet not say the word "Autobot", and I really didn't see what issue it made at that point. Prowl was pointing a gun at Ratchet for breaking cover, showing the humans "robots in disguise" etc. I couldn't see Prowl saying "And to make matters worse, you told him our name! We might as well give up now." But I understand if you want to avoid fan speculation, so I'll shut up now. [[User:LiamK|LiamK]] 09:32, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

Rhetorical QuestionsEdit

I made the recent deletion because I don't understand why we put rhetorical questions about legitimate plot points as "errors" or "items of note" on these pages. The most likely reason Ratchet didn't tell Hunter his faction name is found at the end when Prowl shoves a gun into the doc's face and arrests him for breaking cover. Right? Maybe the best place for these questions and speculations is on fan forums like tfworld2005.com or something.--Suzyprime 02:42, 12 September 2008 (UTC)
