    Why is it that there's always this huge schism on this site between people who like Bayformers and people who don't. It's ridiculous. We all like transformers, we just have different opinions on how it should've been handled on the big screen. Some of us like the Bayformers and some of us think that Transformers should be more serious for the big screen. Look it doesn't matter what one person says, it's your opinion that matters. If someones opinion really bothers you, just ignore it.

    Look I personally don't like the live action movies (excluding the first one) and if I ever start to do video reviews I will make my fair share of jokes. I may not understand why you like the movie series and may cry myself to sleep knowing they made a lot of money but hey it's your right to like them. So please let's stop hating on people who dislike the movies and let's just get back to what we do best and enjoy Transformers for what it is. Autobots waging their battle to destroy the evil forces of the decepticons.

    I just thought of something. She clearly has it out for Transformers because none of her painfully uncared for comics got picked up for a movie deal. Poor girl is just trying to drag in some idiots to stroke her throbbing ego and make her feel good about her self :( 

    We shouldn't laugh at her, we should pity her.

    It's because I'm right and you're wrong, obviously.

    What pisses me off about the internet "hypersarcasm" that she uses is that it takes no wit if you exaggerate things to the point she does. It's so tiring because it takes no imagination. It doesn't matter if the subject is good or bad. It doesn't even matter what the subject IS. You can claim that ANY movie is 8 hours long and that you didn't care about anyone in it. Doesn't really matter if it's transformers movies, Justin Bieber or Twilight or whatever.

    I'm a VERY cynical and sarcastic person, but this shit is drowning the internet to such a degree almost everywhere it's just depressing.

    Ok, I'm done whining about the internet on the internet now. :D

    I really hope you don't actually believe that, because that's just fucking pathetic on your part. This kind of snarky humour is what Gail is like *all the time* on Twitter. She makes fun of nearly everything.

    The post ends up showing more about the poster than Gail. :p 

    As much as I disagree with her I think "envy" is flung around too often to demonise a disagreeing party. It's wrong when corrupt rich yuppies do it and it's wrong here. Just petty armchair psychology to be honest.

    Thanks man, my butt feels so much better now. :D

    Pretty much all of this. It's clear that Simone isn't trying to be funny as much as she's trying to join the legion of people on the internet who feel they have to bash something to score points. Case in point: her "a black guy just showed up!" comment. It's a poor excuse for a joke. Michael Bay gets ripped for Devastator's "balls", but Simone is just as guilty for going to that place for "comedy".

    I think it's true as they say about fiction: the people who are best at parodying or making fun of something are the people who like what they are parodying.

    If you don't care, didn't really pay attention and don't "get it" then you'll probably just come across as childish and ignorant. After all, if you didn't pay attention then you don't even know what you're making fun of.

    Exceptions may and do exist of course and all that.

    Except that diversity is one of Gail's specialities, and her comics always feature hugely diverse casts of different races, colours, creeds and sexual orientations to that point that she's primarily recognized as being one of the major creators who are addressing the issues surrounding those topics in comics. So, no, she's not just parroting a joke she heard from someone else.

    Fair enough, though I think he accused her more about nitpicking in order to complain rather than ripping off a joke. Of course your post explains rather well why she'd point it out.

    It's just hard to take as anything but a bad joke when her approach is:
    "Some guy got angry and it got all drama thread and this Mcfeely guy said something and some other guy said something and I don't care...and a black guy shows up?"
    (I don't think I'm exaggerating her style too much here)

    Personally I just find the "hypersarcasm" as I called it irritating. I don't think anyone really wants to go into racial territory with this already pretty pointless circle j...er..."back patting" thread. :p 

    It may depend on whether you sparkle or not.
    (Yeah, I know that was bad)

    Well lets see:
    People take the hate MUCH TOO FAR.
    its been 3 movies and trolls/ critics wont shut up.
    it seems the only reason the only reason these people go watch this is simply to have something to complain about online for more than a year, and while people say we bayformer lovers complain to everyone, were always the target of geewuners/ trolls/ critics. and ive had enough

    Actually, if what you say is true about her, then parroting a joke is exactly what she's doing.
