Well said, mate.
Not well said. As long as debates are civil, any subject should be open for discussion. I don’t tell anyone else what they should or should not write about, and I expect the same courtesy.
Neither did I. In fact, I specifically said feel free to dissect and rant. My point was to occasionally give some thought to taking a break from trying to beat the franchise and the fans who may not agree with you.
I might have overreacted a bit, so sorry about that. I do feel strongly about such things. I don’t like the suggestion, that there’s some link between negative opinions about the film, and negative behavior in the forum or towards other fans. I think both sides give as much as they get. As such, the idea that too many negative opinions creates some sort of toxic environment or something is alien to me, and it suggests some sort of bias for positive opinions, who apparently don’t have to take a break from praising the franchise. Most of us try to put some thought into these posts, whether positive or negative, and I think these posts should be judged on the merit of their content. It has been suggested by Jason, that too many negative posts allways warrent moderator action. I obviously feel this is not in the best interests of an open forum with a free flow of ideas, but also feel this is a bit disingenuous, considering the mostly negative threads on the prequels and special edition changes on this forum.
