But as I said, that's up to each reader to make up his or her own mind about. They are not an official news site or a trade, so they aren't under any journalistic obligation to live up to any particular ethical or integrity standard. They post the gossip and things they've heard about the movies we care about, and we judge these reports for ourselves. It just so happens that most of the things they hear (when it's not from Mayimbe) turn out to be true, which is why they've become so prominent in the geek community. As long as they continue to post these accurate scoops, El Mayimbe will be an annoyance I'll have no problem overlooking. It's fine if others can't, but his presence doesn't put the credibility of the other writers on the site in question for me.
Agreed. We have consensus.
Now why can't all debates end like this?
Just caught up on the SHIELD show thread in the Marvel Films section, and... *shudder*
