James Doohan lost his finger fighting the Nazis. I would hope a little more respect could be shown for his sacrifice.

Grow up.

Mods, please lock this thread.

Chill, grasshopper. This is what you call a "joke thread", and I don't see how we're making fun of Doohan? Mind detailing what's offensive and in poor taste? Besides, after having mods look at this (and post in it!) for 4 days, I don't think it'll close because you order it closed.

Worst possible taste? Hmm you haven't been by the Caption Contest threads yet have you?

if they must do it, Pope Ratzinger must do it, the same way he shot Doohan's finger off

Agreed. We're making fun of the well-known obsessiveness that Trek fans tend to have over "canon;" there's absolutely no ridicule against Doohan implied or intended in anything I've seen here.

Doohan's involvement is peripheral and random at best. It could just as easily be over any other obscure physical characteristic of TOS -- Pine must wear a toupee, the Enterprise bulkheads must be made of plywood, Yelchin must wear a big bushy wig, etc.

Just . . . Jesus. You people are really twisted.

What passes for humor around here is just one jump above booger jokes.

I like to think of myself as a person with a healthy sense of perspective.

Well, we're (or at least, I'm) willing to listen as to why it's so twisted or inappropriate, but you haven't given us much to chew on.

No. It's all in jest, not serious. I doubt James Doohan would want everyone to get all uptight over something like this thread.

Wouldn't really be an appropriate topic for this thread.

If anybody has a problem with the way the forum is being run feel free to start a QSF thread. Be more then happy to entertain any ideas on keeping the forum interesting, without it becoming a spam fest. It's a fine line to walk, since this forum is supposed to be for serious discussion on the movie. Unfortunately, there really isn't any new stuff to talk about right now.
