Harmy's STAR WARS Despecialized Edition HD - V2.7 MKV IS OUT NOW
Time

Harmy said:

You know, the problem is a link to the Ultimate Introductory Guide, which contains the links in it, is in the first post of this thread and it’s pinned to the top of the FB page - it would be hard to make it much simpler than that short of actually directly putting the links on FB, which is probably not a good idea, as someone mentioned above.

Reading this again, I’d suggest adding something like “Read the Ultimate Introductory Guide, Which Can Be Found in the First Post, For How To Obtain Links” in the title of each of your threads. You’ll never get everyone to pay attention but maybe more people will that way?

I used to be a regular on here but started to hate coming to the forum because of the bullying and trolling, and a week or so into the release of TESBR the trolling aimed at Ady and his work is back full-force.

It’s one annoying person. Please don’t throw our whole forum under the bus.

But that is how it starts. One turns into two and two turns into four etcetera. Moderators should be deleting and blocking the trolls not encouraging it by doing absolutely nothing until it is too late.

No.

Well, sort of. Bullies and trolls are one thing. But if people have constructive criticism, heck if they just don’t like what they’ve watched, well that’s the risk you take in creating something and releasing it to the public. You have to be ready for all comments, even if some are less than glowing praise. I’m sure adywan can handle a few negative comments after years of handling lots of negative comments.

I wasn’t talking about why you give me flak. I don’t think you have given me flak. I was talking about why Frink is giving me flak. I am pretty certain that if I were black held the opinions that I hold, he would not be giving anywhere near the amount of flak he has given me.

Yeah no shit.

Colorblindness is not a virtue in a world lacking equality.

Honestly mfm, based on your posts about friends and relationships in this thread, you need professional help as well.

So I’m told. I don’t trust them though; they’ll probably just try to medicate me. Which I don’t need.

Don’t see a psychiatrist, see a psychologist or general therapist. They can’t prescribe medications. Even if you see a psychiatrist who can, if you tell them at the beginning that you don’t want to use medication except as an absolute last resort, a good shrink will listen.

Also don’t get discouraged if the first one you go to isn’t right for you. It can take time to find a therapist that fits your needs.

Which reminds me, I should probably call my old therapist and see if I can start going again…

Yes, to CA you must listen.

Is <em>Star Wars</em> Your Favorite Movie?
Time

I’ll just repeat my answer from the other thread.

TV’s Frink said:

I don’t have favorite movies anymore.

With that said, I don’t spend time on a Ghostbusters forum.

And with that said, I don’t know if there’s a Ghostbusters forum with an off-topic section as entertaining as this one.

I will say this:

probably people getting stopped by cops due to race happens more often than I realize. But probably lest often than people on the other side care to admit.

One time is too many.

As long as there are moderators on this board, you can expect to be asked - again - to step away from discussions that have nothing to do with whether of not Disney is going to release the 77 film properly.

My post didn’t suggest that ST fans shouldn’t be welcomed here. If that was your (defensive) take, I would advise to please read again.

What I did was I explained that it should not be a surprise that many people here for the original trilogy dislike these films both individually and on a greater level. I’ve always said that if someone can stand criticism of something they like, and engage in a civil manner, I will always behave in the same way. Most of the Disney ST fans cannot and they are responded to in kind. If you want to banish me or any OOT-only poster to OOT-only threads, and make these general threads a safe space devoid of ST criticism, then put it in the rules somewhere and I will do you a favor. You won’t even have to take moderator action or ask me to leave. I will do it of my own volition, as that is not the type of community I want to belong to.

I understand you don’t dig the new films. I didnt dig any Star Wars releases between 1980 and 2015. I didn’t take that out on the people who did.

You didn’t like Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, or the prequels, so when people mercilessly criticize them, you turn your back and look the other way.

But when people criticize the movies you do like, you get defensive and suddenly its time to put on the moderator hat.

There’s a word for that. It starts with an h…

Let me be clear here since you seem to struggle with subtlety. Reel it in. Your opinion isn’t the only one.

Let me be clear here, since you seem rude and hostile towards people who make you feel insecure and uncomfortable about being a middle age man in pajamas enjoying his Summer of Rogue One. If you weren’t a hypocrite and an asshole, I wouldn’t respond to you in this way. I give people what they give back. There are numerous ST fans and PT fans I’ve come across on this forum that I treat with respect because they act the same way. When someone acts like an insecure child, they deserve to be treated like an insecure child. If you want to ban me because I dared to strike against your authority, then go ahead. It won’t change your insecurity or your hypocrisy.

My only apology would be to Jay, whose forum this is. He’s always been a cool and fair man and I regret for him the hostility these altercations cause on his board.

I much prefer your original “f” post.

You gave his “f” post an A+ while this post gets an F.
