    DAMN...[​IMG]

    Oh goddess help me, my IQ went down* by a couple of points after just browsing through that forum; so many people with so many meaningless yet hypocritical words not seeing the irony.

    So that's where some of the new members come from....






    *I need all my points since I'm low as is >_<

    I can't get in there even with your link. I'm just getting previews for the Zodiac, and Blades of Glory.

    Actually when I click that link like phreakybot I just get redirected to Paramount.com

    *EDIT* Looks like the site's back up

    Well it's mainly just virtrolic, non-constructive bashing of the movie.

    Nobody's going to miss the Movie boards. I've been there a few times, but back then literally every thread was dominated by hatred and bashing. Threads were either about how much the movie sucks and everyone agreeing, or one person posting about something they thought was cool, only to get shot down by fifty other posters.
    TFW seems to have the most agreeable people...

    The main difference is that here the moderators ACTUALLY moderate. So whether you're an enthusiast, a detractor or in-between doesn't matter. It's showing courtesy and respect for opposing opinions that matters here and on the other fan boards. And the nasty vitrolic stuff is usually removed pretty quick :)

    This is why we have so many problems when posters from there migrate here; they carry on acting like they did over there, and get annoyed when they get called for it.

    So I can post that I actually like what I'm seeing about this movie and won't be crucified for it here? Or won't be yelled at saying I'm not a true fan? Nice... :)

    LOL sure seems to be the case. I've taken a look at those boards, so full of ignorance and close-minded people it's rather upsetting (and stomach churning) to crawl through. But one man's trash is another man's treasure.

    Maybe some of our very brave people should go there and inject a little of the optimsm we seem to have? I don't mean get into a flame, just kinda project some positive views without twisting the tie a little too much. Maybe some will ease out of the hate :)

    D00d. If anyone here is stupid enough to play the "True Fan" card in seriousness, you watch them get laughed at for it. Usually by me. :p

    Yeah no worries about that here. I mean the "True fan" card has been played here. But generally the person who plays it gets laughed at and ignored :D 

    Ugh personally it invalidates ANY opinion on the movie when said person accuses another of not being a True fan. The fact that it's 10 years later and members of the community still do that is depressing :redface2:

    Maybe we can try and convince Orci to move over to this board instead! :)

    You are not a true fan, I AM A TRUE FAN!

    Tonight we will dine in Fandom Hell (i.e. Bay's house).

    ...

    Okay I carried that too far.







    So, so true.

    ... *realizes the irony of it* I'll go cry in the corner....
