I've seen more legit looking articles from the Onion.

Really... we should set it where people can't start threads unless they have 100 posts and have been around at least a month. The influx of spam threads by new accounts lately is kinda getting bad.

I agree.

Besides, if Abrams had quit the Sci-fi/Fantasy folks would've been all over this.

It would be like saying "I'm done with huge amounts of cash, who needs it?!"

Re: BREAKING-J.J. Abrams exits STAR WARS VII

I don't see why people are sore at this. It was kinda funny. I mean you know we get on this board to talk about a TV show right? People know how we love this stuff, of course some of those people are gonna troll, or do something like this. I give this one a little credit.

I liken it to what on see on here all the time, someone posts something...maybe an idea they had on the new movie, and it never fails that there are always at least two to three (and sometimes more) responses that are, "Whatever we already discussed this" or "Are we really discussing this again" or "Lame" or something along these lines. It often seems like there are members on here that get off on just doing that, in short telling others their posts have no substance and not realizing that with their responses they are doing the same thing...

...kinda like this response.

Who's sore? Lame jokes just bore my ass to tears...and the "lookit me, I'm clever" factor is pathetic.

I wholeheartedly support this idea.

My daddy used to say, "It's so sad when sperm is wasted like that." That's how I feel about johnfilms crap.

Sore was just a broad term...

Maybe J.J. has creative ethics and enjoys making the best movie he can possibly......

I almost got it all out.

Re: BREAKING-J.J. Abrams exits STAR WARS VII

This news about Abrams exiting Star Wars VII, came out on the net on April the First. Only one online news website reported it, everybody else didn't.

Anyway, it's only a April Fool prank.

I don't know. They can't put anything on the Internet that isn't true. (Bonjour!)
