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.
Anchorhead suggested ‘However, maybe give some serious thought to focusing on what you like’ - there’s nowt wrong with that - if you have a problem with that - that’s your problem.
He also said ‘By all means feel free to vent, deconstruct, debate, rage, etc.’ - so what is your problem here?
My problem is with the concept of a moderator giving advice on what people should focus on in their debates. In my opinion the focus should always be on the content, not on the people who write the content, and their motives.
That the seemingly endless repeated and circular negative content in here has become an issue
An issue for whom? For those that don’t agree with that content?
An issue for anyone trying to read through this thread most likely - whether they agree or disagree - whatever their stance. Most topics on the site with seemingly endless repeated and circular negative content will eventually result in a mod trying address the issue therein.
where a moderator has asked members to maybe also give some thought to the things they like about the film - in amongst the ‘free to vent, deconstruct, debate, rage’ - and you give him or me shit for it… says a lot - about you.
What’s that supposed to mean? Moderators can do personal attacks now? I’m advocating for a “discuss the films, and not the fans” policy. I don’t see why that would warrent such a response.
How on earth have you got ‘moderators can make personal attacks now?’ from a moderator has asking members maybe also give some thought to the things they like about the film? And you then giving us shit for it… (Don’t bother replying - it’s rhetorical).
I will stop discussing the subject, since I don’t want to keep going off subject, but this is a serious issue for me.
Probably a very good thing if you’re going to go off on one like this.
‘By all means feel free to vent, deconstruct, debate, rage, etc. I do it occasionally myself. It’s what makes this forum work. However, maybe give some serious thought to focusing on what you like. The stuff we don’t like about the franchise isn’t going away’ - what a terrible thing to suggest. Aye, a serious issue that, indeed…
