Okay, that’s weird. I’ll try to fix it or take it off then. And yeah, it’s the name of the guy’s blog, maybe it is blocking it because of that? Just a picture of Gary, Mark and Carrie on set.

EDIT: Changed it. Hopefully it works now.

Yes it works now. It’s blocked because he doesn’t allow hotlinking because that uses up his bandwidth. You could see it here because the image is loaded into your cache from visiting the original site. If you clear your cache you’ll see the image in my quote no longer appears for you either and you’ll see what I see (the “no hotlinking” message).

To avoid this I preview my post prior to posting and then clear my cache, if the image still shows it’s good to go.

They should probably both unwind a bit. I am not the only one who feels this way.

I suggest a visit to the catina (separately of course)

I just don’t like bullshit. I call it out, I get more bullshit in return. It’s…bullshit, and I’m tired of it.

With that said I’m done. Life is too short.

I didn’t take it personally, but that’s because I don’t place much regard on your posts in general. You said it wasn’t aimed at me (which I think is a lie, since you’re the master of subtle trolling), but you didn’t say it wasn’t aimed at other members; let’s not pretend you didn’t intend for it to reflect on them.

We both know this was an attempt at a gotcha post after what happened in the Politics thread and not a genuine attempt to have a meaningful conversation. Since you ask, my problem is that you engage primarily to stir up trouble and rarely develop a cogent thought that goes beyond a general contradiction—usually mockery—of someone else’s post, after which you smugly strut around bathed in self-satisfaction thanks to another job well done.

You make running the forum a more stressful job than should be necessary and it’s not only me who’s getting a bit fed up with it.

Ah ok we’ve crossed back into admin-making-subtle-threats territory, which is par for the course.

But no it wasn’t aimed at you or anyone else here. You call me a liar, fine, that reflects more on you than me. I’m tired of your shit, I call you out, you call me a liar. Well done.

I don’t even know what that is supposed to mean. You said people here called you something. I asked for proof. You pointed to a conversation where I explicitly said I was not talking about you or anyone else here and you acknowledged it at the time, like it or not. I don’t know what your problem is, but I give up. You’re living in a self-constructed fantasy world and pointing it out is obviously a waste of time.

As Picard had a love for archeology, I like the Indiana Jones comparison.

Can you really see Picard running around punching nazis and looking for the Holy Grail and the Ark of the Covenant, using a whip to climb things and swing from one thing to another and as a weapon, all while wearing a brown leather jacket and fedora?

You mean this guy?


I mean the cerebal Picard from the tv series. If you ask me, that scene just did not fit the Picard from the show. The movies never got Picard right.

Ah, First Contact. It may be the best of the TNG films, but that’s not saying very much.

They never got TNG right in the films.

i like the first two but I’m not a huge fan so I never worried about them getting it “right.”

to be perfectly honest, i’ve never seen this group of men who can’t stand women in movies calling anyone a mary sue.

That would be my experience as well. The handful of mysoginists I know are much meaner about their dislike of female equality.

Whether they are openly misogynistic or just disrespectful of intelligent female equals, they don’t use terms that started in, or live in, the nerd community and blogosphere. They’re angrier than that.

Some are more subtle. Some don’t even think (know?) they’re doing it while they’re doing it.

How patronizing.

Ah see it doesn’t feel great to be talked down to, does it? With that said I was just generalizing, it wasn’t aimed at you. Why so touchy about it though?

I know it wasn’t aimed at me. I wasn’t including myself in your target group and wasn’t offended by it because I’m not suffering from internalized misogyny.

So we’re agreed I wasn’t talking about anyone here then. Glad we cleared that up.

I believe it was this thread where it was condescendingly suggested that those of us criticizing TLJ may be subconscious misogynists.

Source please.

If that’s the best you’ve got, you better read the exchange again. And your whole post is invalidated now, since you’re bitching about people here saying things which in fact they never said, including me.
