I think by the time someone shows up to needlessly insult him by saying, "Anyone who would put (Film That Has Nothing to Do with MoS) over (Film That Has Nothing to Do with MoS) doesn't know film at all," the conversation's been derailed too far and needs to be reeled back in.
Yeah that was me. And maybe it wasn't quite on topic, but at the same time, it might have eventually lead to an analysis that would put that poster's opinion of the MoS producer in perspective by analyzing thoughts on film. Plus, I wanted to get my thoughts out and didn't feel it necessary to open a new thread.
This is a geek message board, and we all have thoughts and opinions, and we all want to questions those opinions of others in order to reassess our own. Relax a bit.. conversations are conversations, and they have a tendency of rambling a bit before getting back on point in real life, so why not on a forum?
