Look, I have the right to answer the OP, just like everyone else does. It's just that my opinion happens to be in the minority in this thread. That doesn't mean I'm not allowed to post it.

And yeah, it's everyone else replying that's committed the greater incivility. My own negative remarks are directed toward the individuals associated with the movie itself. I'm not flaming or trolling anyone who likes it. Just because I think the 2009 movie was stupid, that doesn't mean I think the fans are also stupid. I'm fully aware that I like books and movies that other people don't.

BTW, there have been plenty of people coming in to the Voyager forum just to rant on about how much they dislike that series. Have I gone on a rampage of trolling them?

No, I have not.

So because other people go in to a part of the board and do what you're doing, it's ok to do that which you believe is your right? Surely it's only a privilege as I'll find it hard to believe you pay to be a premier member.

You really shouldn't make unfounded assumptions. See the attached screenshot. It's my understanding that only paid members get to see and post in the premium members' lounge.

At least I give my reasons. Some of the drive-by negativity is in the vein of "Voyager sucks!" and the poster never says why he thinks that way.

I will be watching STID (that's a really unfortunate acronym, since on a quick glance it can be misread as something a lot worse) later this month, as it's available on video-on-demand and my cable company gave me a free coupon. Based on the previews and copious spoilers I've seen here, I'm not expecting great things, but if there is anything I end up liking about it, I will at least be honest enough to come back and say so.

Well I guess I stand corrected and that explains the self entitlement that blares from every single one of your posts you write.

I sincerely doubt you've read every single one of my posts. And I formed my opinion of nuTrek long before even considering becoming a paid member here.

Here, the spoiler thread and a few other threads, you give off a very negative impression.

I probably give negative impressions if I'm posting about something I don't like.

The opposite tends to be true if it's about something I do like, or if it's one of the very long story threads (where you post 5 words at a time), a caption thread, etc. I was quite enthusiastic about posting in the Shouting Spock thread, and used to enter some of the avatar contests.

As I said, I sincerely doubt you've read all of those.

Will there be a Surgeon General's warning on the cover?

How about an Emergency Medical Hologram's warning?

While it can be annoying to have a lot of people reacting negatively to your opinions, it doesn't automatically become trolling. And up until today's posts everything in this thread has been civil.

You are entitled to have your opinions and post them, everyone else is equally entitled to have theirs and post theirs. We won't all agree. It's important for everyone to stay polite and enjoy the conversation.

You're crossing the line into getting personal, Dimesdan, the self entitlement comment isn't warranted.


Now, let's get back to poking fun at Greg Cox for daring to put Voyager within a TOS novel (Something I'm really intrigued by...)

Voyager + TOS = Janeway/Kirk
