It's sad, yes, but those kinds of comments are much worse when it comes to single reviews than forums/message boards, so I think it's best to take out comments completely, such as RT.

It's the same reason why we have message boards. Discussions of opinions. Reviews are the same thing. Fans like and want to discuss and comment on what these professional critics have to say about the movies. After all it's these reviews that make up the scores on places like RT and Metacritic.

We always have a thread on them here for every new movie. Other websites should be no exception.
But with forums/message boards, you have differing opinions from among your peers, not people going after a critic or in some instances, a top critic, such as the differing areas on RT.

It's nothing to do with what comes to fruition, it's the fact that they are the worst kind of behavior. Not on the same level as simple name calling.

If you called someone an idiot, nobody would be giving you any medals for it. But if you threatened to kill someone for it, you'd be seen as the worst kind of fan. And rightfully so.
And that's fine and your opinion, and while I think death threats are as bad as you can get as well, it's still just a bad comment to make as bad as a 'This [singer] or [actor] should die' kind of comment. They're all in bad taste for sure, but it's just something that you have to deal with in a normal basis. Certain types of people are just hateful.
