Point taken Chris. Although if you do look at some of my posts as a whole their not all stupid or offensive. I'll grant you the greater percentage of my post may veer more towards the silly but that's just my sensibility. I'll generally gravitate to being more obscure on threads that seem to descend into bland replies rather than think about who might get there nose put out of joint. Tony and I have a little tiff going on a the moment but I don't bare the guy any ill will. I'm just trying to make the point with him to lighten up and that all I'm saying is that the forums tend to end up all the same. Very beige. Tony, if you read this, peace man. I work in the cinema trade and feel I can contribute something of value to the site (if the opiions of a Chief Projectionist in London's West End are of value) and I just don't like to see forums sink into the 'I'm buying this DVD next', 'I've got this DVD on order' kind of banality. And for the record, I am showing Brokeback Mountain at the moment and it is a fine film. Cheers.

There's more than enough life on this site. There are plenty of sites out there that don't allow comments on news and review items for the very reasons we're now encountering - the Internet attracts a lot of t**ts. It really is beyond me why people visit the site simply to cause trouble or spout useless b*****ks. I've given it some thought, and I simply can't think of any conceivable reason for someone to do it. It can't make them feel better about themselves, can it? Surely people don't actually think insulting others makes them a better person in the eyes of others. Who are they trying to impress?

Not aimed at anyone in particular (this time), just more of an observation. I think we're pretty lenient all things considered. There are some sites that will ban you for mentioning the name of retailers they're not affiliated with. We do try to protect our interests, but not to that extent.

What does that mean, you have no interest in gay issues? What is it in reference too? Is Brokeback Mountain a gay only film or something?

I was just saying that it was a dumb joke, and it was homophobic. I'm not exactly appriciative of homophobia, but that doesn't mean I think I'm above the occasional tasteless joke, hell, I've got dozens. It just so happens that this particular tasteless joke wasn't very funny, to me at least. I seriously doubt you have the balls to make a joke about someone's race or religion in the same vein.

That said, I'm going to believe you that you don't really care about your post count.
I remember Fernando saying he was always on the Imdb for SM4 and I went to see if he was the same Fernando there as he was here and there was the Dr. Bleu guy with a link to Fernando's myspace.  I told him who I was and he said Hi to me.  When he left here he was yelling about how much he hated me, Tony, and the admins.

Well maybe that's what's missing from an otherwise decent DVD site. A bit of unpredictability. A bit of life.

I've seen this comment loads of times and it's always from people who have thousands of posts. What benefit do you think I get (in the real world) from upping a post count. Nothing. It only means something to you. Zero my post count. Why count them anyway?

Oops. There's another one.

I'm sorry but the threads always end up really bland and samey. Not all my contributions are stoopid but sometimes I just react badly to the same old post along the lines of 'ooo I like that film too' or 'I'm buying this disc next'. If those posts qualify as high octane to you lot then fine. Be my guest. As for the Brokeback comment, I'm fine with it. I have no interest in gay issues but that doesn't mean it's off limits as far as what I think passes for funny nor does it make me homophobic. Lighten up a bit.

So, Je Ff, where did you see Fernando?

I noticed that too.  The one person I remember from Answers was that Lamar person who liked to "Punk" us.  But I actually ran into Fernando on another board and he told me to tell you all that he says hi and is now respectful.  But on topic, the Brokeback Mountain comment wasn't necessary.  It's not a movie I have any interest in seeing, but no need to be rude.
Generally the topic wasn't funny, but the Brokeback comment was pretty lame and quaintly homophobic.
