    no doubt that there are people here gauging what has been leaked and the general consensus of the fans opinions of it

    How exactly would they do that? Put their hands over our eyes and ears?

    This place doesn't have a facepalm emote, so I'll have to use that.

    Well, once a picture is on the this site for 10 seconds it is all ready copied like 1,000 times. I would say not on these sites but in the offices that have all the info.

    I really doubt it. Bay seems to have made it really clear the first go round that he doesn't care what we think so why would he put up the effort of sending out his minions just to keep the people he doesn't care about from figuring things out before the release.

    No... no not at all. That's just crazy talk. *Jots down notes and then scurries away into a ventilation shaft*

    Who told you nonsense like that? I need names, addresses, and maybe a few phone numbers. What time do you usually go to sleep, and how heavy a sleeper are you? Do you have any allergies to chloroform or nylon rope?

    It's moments like this, as you feebly type some kind of anti-Bay commentary, you look over your shoulder expecting to see someone in a combat suit clutching a gun staring at you.

    "You WILL use an emoticon at the end of your sentence to indicate you are being sarcastic in your refference to Bay's movie being unsatisfactory and not actually imply that you are in fact completey serious in your biased analysis!"

    He then hits you over the head with the butt of his gun, rendering you unconcious, and jumps out through the window, his work complete.

    Well, ya know, I wouldn't be surprised if crew members occasionally bounced in on the forums. We all know that Roberto Orci reads the threads, but to go so far as to say "Michael Bay is spying on us Man!" is a little paranoid. I think everyone just needs to kick back, take a swig, and calm... (NECK SNAPS) :bay

    It'd be difficult to deny that they hang around. A lot of script writers are younger than used to be the norm, and with the internet being much more widely used as both a tool of communication between professionals, and a place to hang out, added with the fact that as franchises get older they start being written by the people who grew up with them as a kid, more and more are bound to be online in some for at some point.

    But no, not exactly as spies. Who uses the word cronies anymore anyway? That word always makes me think about 60 year old groupies or something. Which is gross.

    I AM NOT A PLANT.


    And now that I've said that, I fully expect to spend the next 200 posts explaining to people the concept of 'joking'.

    Oh I don't know. If you clicked your heels together and clenched your cheeks really hard you might be able to manage it in one post.

    Watching us? Possibly.

    But only to gauge fan reaction, or see how far we've "cracked the code" on his campaign to keep it all quiet.

    If anyone's misdirecting us, it's Bay himself, and as it was said, he's not really listening to the fans (and that has proven to be successful.) so I seriously doubt he'd go out of his way to send his people our way.

    If anything, I'd say the production folks are the ones keeping a watchful eye over us and seeing what's what.

    Maybe even the writers, since we've actually had interaction with at least one of them.

    All that being said, it's nothing sinister, so even if there were people watching us, it's to find out what we know, what we expect, and how big of a surprise we'll receive once we see the final product.

    It's one thing to find humor in all of this, it's another to become paranoid...or close to the border on it.

    Seriously, it's just a movie, it's not gonna change the world. Once you can relax and have fun with it, you'll have a lot more enjoyment.
