    Quit trying to incite eachother in to arguments.

    Quit making threads calling out "Lovers", "Haters", whatevers... it's not constructive. It's trolling pure and simple.

    From now on any threads labelled as such will be closed.

    Opinions can be asked for without calling for one particular "group" out. There is absoloutely no need for it. Neither "side" seems to be able to conduct themselves with tact or restraint in said threads for long. Why? They're starting off on completely the wrong foot. You post aggressively, you get aggression in kind.

    So let's at least try and start things on the right foot from now on and let the shitstorms occur as naturally as can be rather than waving the red rag at the proverbial bull.

    Thanks for taking the time to read.

    Twin Twist is a troll "Hater", obviously.

    But seriously, thank you for this post.

    Very well said.

    I'm actually kinda ashamed that I accidentally propagated this when I started a thread with "hater" in the title earlier today. I figured that it was the accepted terminology for those who didn't like the film. I guess I could have done a little more research, huh? :wink:

    I did the same thing (although mine was much more malicious and self defeating and made me look like a jerk). I think as fans we are all pretty capable of forgiving/forgeting

    side, How can anyone be mad at someone with a Dr.Orpheus avatar :D

    What's been described in the first post is why I stopped posting in this forum. I personally am not a fan of the film, but I did like certain aspects. I certainly don't want to be labelled a "hater", and I don't see the point of labelling others as "lovers".

    This was what started me down this line of thinking outside of the "Oh god this is horrible to moderate" thing. According to one thread in particular, I was supposedly a hater even though I enjoyed my time with the film well enough. The logic, overall, was totally broken.

    Twin Twist, I...

    ... I think I love you.:eek:  This haters/lovers crap had degenerated the Movie forum past the point where it was fun to read even in an ironic, "God aren't people stupid" way.

    I was a really big fan of that thread.I didnt like the movie but there were a few gems it.

    I tried get everyone to get along like this once but my thread attracted all the snarky assholes so this is really cool.

    Can you feel the love.
