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'd say that carpet-bombing all of the better-known Trek/SciFi/geek/nerd sites with it on April 11 may not have been the ideal method for playing that sort of prank.

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 think that would go too far. A one week delay in starting threads would be more than enough (with 48hrs probably being enough). 99.9% of these jokers would be stopped by any lack of immediate gratification.

So 100 days and a month's membership is too steep in my opinion and would deter a lot of well-intentioned people from joining.

I don't see why people are sore at this. It was kinda funny.
I tend to agree. The leaving "narrative film" line made me chuckle (though I refrained from clicking the link to read more).

I think some folks complain because that's their schtick - they enjoy stomping their foot and pointing their finger in condemnation because if the joke ain't theirs then it ain't funny - no exceptions. It's insecurity on their part and it shows.

All in my super-duper-humble opinion.

I tend to not click on links like t.co that lead to an unknown destination. Now I am actually disappointed it didn't lead to a popular shock site. It is a waste of 300 words.

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

You post a headline that draws me away from watching Natalie Portman's stripper routine in Closer and *this* is the drivel I get? You sir have committed a crime I cannot forgive. . .

I think we've got about all the mileage we're going to get out of this. Closing now.
