I think it's the whole "I am doing a drive by, kthxbye" deal that people react to.
Could be, though if that's the logic it's silly. If you think someone is trolling, all you're doing by responding is giving them something to react to.

Then again I believe in giving people the benefit of the doubt.
I always give people the benefit of the doubt until they give me reason to feel otherwise. New user, old user, you don't join, say you joined to slag on something, proceed to slag on said something, also state that you're never commenting again, only to comment again by starting a new thread about it in the wrong forum. That is the quickest way to lose that benefit.

You cannot use the expression "I didn't know not to post twice," because that doesn't matter. If you said you're not going to comment on it again, only to make a new thread about it in one of the topmost visible Trek forums, then you're either lying, or trolling.

Re: Into Darkness. Terrible!

If two senior officers being a relationship was a problem for him he should have quit Trek during TNG.


I agree there were serious problems with the film, and it wasn't targeted at the same people who enjoyed the original Treks. But it's possible to criticize a film without a condescending tone.

Again. Sorry I posted twice. I couldn't find the first one and not knowing forums didn't think it worked so I started again.
With an exact 'copy and paste'? Amazing. Truly.

Thank you for the feedback though.
No problemo.

Or TOS's first season episode 'Court Martial' - Kissing on the bridge! I could add more, but I'd be repeating myself...

I enjoyed the original Treks. I enjoyed this one. I think it was targeted for someone just like me.

I've enjoyed the Abramsverse films far more than most of TNG, DS9, Voyager and Enterprise.

Re: Into Darkness. Terrible!

Well, since this is in the wrong forum, and the exact same point was made in the correct forum, I'm going to close this thread. Feel free to continue the discussion in Star Trek Movies XI+
