    great thread idea:up: the biggest problem here is force feeding of views
    Some just can;t accept that someone See's an aspect of the movie in a different way to them and suddenly they are no longer discussing the point they are calling the other Poster names b/c they won't agree with them

    That IS the biggest problem. We should all be able to look at the production of Returns and comment on it whichever way we please. The problem is that some of the posters that are positive about production aren't accepting a snippit of negativity. The problem is that those who are negative about one aspect might be positive about another. Most of us don't take the time to find out and jump on them.

    oh trust me, that works very well too :D, but for the kinds of members of these forums it needs a bit of a closer watch ;)

    besides, who says a Mod has to post under their own nick ;), all thats really improtant is to flood the boards with the right kind of posts (meaning the tone) and usually everything else falls in line.

    Well hopefully the banning of this sections biggest problem will solve some of the jumping
    Guys like Cine just can't help their enthusiasm and never make it personal and i don't mind points being defended if we stick to the points

    one of the big problems of these boards also is that many cant agree to disagree. its always "take no prisoners" mode. that's never gonna work, specially in a message board where 98% of the posts are opinions. i've seen threads where it was pages after pages of two people arguing and refuting every single sentence the other posted and it would just bog the thread down. they certainly know what they're talking about, its just that they wont agree that they have two differing POVs and that they should just leave it at that.

    That's how I feel about Cinnamon as well. I think he is very excited about the movie, but I still think he shouldn't try to force his opinion. I told him my thoughts on that.

    That is a good point. Why can't we agree to disagree at some point. I have seen some of the "Big Boys" do it on many occasions, Fatboy, OldGuy and others.

    I don't think this problem will ever really go away.

    You are probably right my man. I figured we could give it a whirl. I do like puppies on a car though. Behind my goatee I am a softee.

    I was refering to those posters who go back and forth and tend to rip on each other for a bit before coming to an agreement. You don't fit that category you are in a class by yourself.

    I used them because they can flame on while providing intelligent points and stitching witty remarks, but can also say, ok we will disagree. I rarely if ever see you flame anybody. :up:

    :O I feel like I am 20 years older than I am sometimes. Must be the rain that is pelting the east coast.

    I am suprised I haven't opened up a tirade on the boards. I hate rain.
