A good example of a callback was Nero screaming Spock's name like Kirk shouted "Khan", which means we had two call backs to in a row so far.
So any time a character shouts another characters name in Star Trek its a callback to Kirk in TWOK?
Given that Nero was inspired by Khan and the way Bana cranks it up, yeah, in that case it clearly was.

Your query was "is this a Mitt Romney 'corporations are people' thing?" which isn't about someone "ripping off" the work of another person.
In a way, that's the whole point. The "can a corporation rip itself off?" ploy neatly ignores the question of whether or not an individual in fact ripped off the work of another individual. Hence the Romney reference, which was meant to highlight the fact that I was talking about people as opposed to corporations. Your response merely ignored this implication and doubled down on the "let's talk about corporations" strategy.

Again, in answer to a question about companies ripping themselves off, you brought up Romney's quote. Those are the two statements I was responding to.
You actually had an entire thread at your disposal, not just two posts floating in some kind of void. Repeating someone else's strawman doesn't make it any less a strawman.

No it does't as they are two different things.

I ignored nothing. I simply gave an answer to your question.

I quoted the posts in question for a reason. That reason being I was focusing on them and their content. I assumed that by quoting Belz post you were doing the same.

Again, not a strawman, but a perfectly valid answer to your question.

If a movie makes someone miserable, they probably need to take a step back and reevaluate their lives.

I'm not agreeing to that at all. And I know that, if they hadn't used the "Khaaaaaaaaaan" line, we'd all be arguing now about the writers' so-obvious, cowardly, missed opportunity at an affectionate callback/homage to ST II.

That's not quite the same thing, though, is it?
Well the reason it was an issue is because it was really two corporations(record guys) fighting over one person.

Had "The Old Man Down The Road" been written/performed by someone like, say, Big Head Todd, I doubt it would have ever come up.

Admittedly, the analogy would have been more correct if the issue was Sowards or Meyer went on to do another space adventure not titled Star Trek and not for Paramount and had a similar scene.

But the point I was trying to make is the only reason people are up in arms about it is because of the direct correlation.

Star Trek neither holds monopolies on death scenes were the heroes are separated by a barrier of some kind (with or without the palm touching), nor scenes where the protagonist screams the antagonist's name in anguish.

No, now I have no idea what you were trying to say.

(I believe the term is "tongue-in-cheek".)

I think we should all just admit that Star Trek Into Darkness is a fun movie to watch. Everyone knows I'm right!

If only it were all fun. I do think the pre title sequence was fun. After that, no so much.

No, we wouldn't. Mind you, the writers probably would have had nuSpock say/do something equally stupid.
