Please knock off the cheap rhetorical game-playing and pay attention to what I just said. I've explained myself fairly clearly.

You mean: "I wanted to make a drive-by statement about the Abrams films and not be challenged on it".

You made the statement:

I'm asking you to post statistical proof or to retract the statement. Or were you simply making it up?

I have no problem with intelligent challenges and intellectually honest, non-hostile engagement, Bill.

I'd say nine out of ten people liking a movie is the exact opposite of what you're saying.

Asking for "statistical proof" of a statement that didn't quote any statistics is game-playing, Bill. If I had said "most" people regard the Abramsverse as garbage you would have a point.

So it was a drive-by slam that you actually couldn't support.

That, to me, is intellectually dishonest. But hey, whatever makes you sleep better at night.

Re: Do fans want the prime timeline back? Part 2: Poll edition.

I suppose, to take your numbers, if the 22,000 dislikers on Rotten Tomatoes do not qualify for you as "many" people you are entitled to your opinion, Bill. (I would point out that 10% of a sample does in fact meet the common threshold of "statistical significance" if that's what you prefer.) But since I don't support drawing conclusions from Rotten Tomatoes "statistics" your demand that "proof" be provided in a context irrelevant to the comment remains... well, let's just say it remains what it is. Like I said, I welcome intelligent challenges and honest engagement. I hope to eventually see some from you.

Details like Chekov not being in "Space Seed" or Khan's crew being multi-ethnic?

Thank you for the question, Geoff. No. More along the lines of details like "is there a plot that makes sense" or "does the fantasy tech set up some in-world rules and then stick to them" (the latter being the subject I was originally responding to).

Re: Do fans want the prime timeline back? Part 2: Poll edition.

Less than one out of ten is insignificant in the world of entertainment and doesn't qualify as "many people thinking that Into Darkness is garbage".

I can respect the fact that some people don't like the film but I don't try to misrepresent fandom or general audiences by speaking for them. I let the actual numbers and movie-goers speak for themselves. All I can say is what I think and present the numbers that are available.

I don't think most people care about either if they have a good time. They probably don't care about consistency between the source material and the current incarnation either. The ones who do care are probably "Trekkies" or their equivalent.

I'm a Trekkie and I go to movies to be entertained not pick them apart.

I love that people are going around demanding and trying to provide "proof" of their opinion about the last movie.

"Many" and "most" refer to more than one opinion.
