You need to calm down.
You are aware that saying this basically means you forfeit the argument, right? I'm not going to get deeply into this, and I'm not going to take sides. This is objective advice. Pre-emptively telling someone to calm down is actually very telling of what you really have to add to the discussion.

Don't forget the use of lasers in place of guns.
I've checked some of the Boo Arc pages, and the change is stupid, but so what? It's miniscule to the point of irrelevance.
Same could be said for dub tranlslations though. I could say so what if Piccolo says "Special Beam Canon". But that doesn't stop a lot of people having a problem with it. Some people might not like things being changed from the original you might think it is irrelevant but others might not.

I think changing Makankosospaghetti to Special Beam Canon is a bit more significant because it actually changes the meaning, with "Ma" apparently meaning demon and the rest being some nonsense about a piercing drill of light. It explains very specifically what the technique is. "Special Beam Canon" also describes the technique, but it's much more vague, and it doesn't mention demon. I understand censoring was an issue, but they could have replaced Ma with "Evil" in that case. All-in-all, Special Beam Canon just fails to convey the author's intent.

Replacing guns with lasers though? It's subjective, but I think they both get the same point across... the only point of contention I can think of would be if those two lunatics who shot Mr. Satan used lasers instead of guns, as that might not get the same gritty, realistic brutality and evil across.

I don't care about those, either.

I don't think it's the best, something about the palette of the later stuff (23rd Budokai and forward) really turns me off.

Also, they're oddly reluctant to use reds in the backgrounds unless they absolutely have to.

Yeah, it was a pretty run-of-the-mill padding episode. I never got what the big deal was.

Agreed. I never liked it that much. Though, I will say, I thought Piccolo looked pretty cool in that episode.

It was fun at first but the second try was really boring.

Ditto.
When someone tells you, "Don't present your opinion as fact," what they're actually saying is, "Don't present your opinion with any conviction. Because I don't like your opinion, and I want to be able to dismiss it as easily as possible." Don't fall for it.

I think characters should just stop appearing when their relevance is over, similar to Launch or Android 17. Even Tenshinhan and Chiaotzu were gone for the majority of the Buu saga.

Come to think of it both Oolong and Puar should have stopped appearing by the end of the Freeza saga at the latest. I know with Yamcha around its hard to ignore Puar, but whatever.

I third this.

I'd have to say The Strongest Fusion is Mr. Kageyama's best song. The vocals (and music, of course) are so much more energetic than Cha-La. And I've also been starting to really like Fusion in general, so that's a thing too.

I never found it that funny, either.

From this, we can gather that the driving episode is universally overrated, and that its actual worth has been inflated somehow.

You can't really gather that from 5 people agreeing. Many people, myself included, still enjoy it.

Most of the filler in DBZ is good.

The only really bad filler is "Fake Namek," some of the extra Goku/Freeza fight padding in the anime on Namek, and maybe some one-off eps I'm forgetting about. I didn't even mind the Garlic Jr. saga much.

I enjoy all the Saiyan Saga filler, even ones like Princess Snake and the others people tend not to like. Most of the Cell and Buu saga filler was so good I didn't even know it was filler. The extra Great Saiyaman eps were good too.
