It's shocking but I'm thinking that R.Star doesn't deserve Star Trek after his terrible words.
...

I do love the assumptions that if I don't agree with the majority I simply don't deserve it, get it or what not.
That was a joke, not an assumption.

Also: You can drop the worn-out "if I don't agree with the majority" shtick any time. Your opinion is your opinion. So own it, and stop trying to guilt-trip others for holding opinions of their own - that just looks whiny and sort of pathetic.
It would be really nice if the "majority opinion" people would stop trying to guilt-trip those holding the "unpopular opinion" for holding those opinions, too.

Nobody likes feeling ganged up on, no matter which opinion they hold.

Thank you. Though there is a certain amount of irony of a post claiming one should "own opinions" and stop "guilt tripping people" while simultaneously calling one "whiny and pathetic" for expressing an opinion they don't like and implying they shouldn't.. almost like guilt tripping.

Re: Quinto's Spock is too emotional

If you took me seriously R. Star then.. well I really don't know what to say. I would think you'd have interacted with me enough on other forums to know otherwise.

Definitely do!

Though it would seem others are taking a comment I made... full with a emoticon, known for it's stern countenance, seriously.

Uh-uh. This isn't an MA thread, and you should know better.

Balderdash. It was not your opinion which was being thus described, but your four-year habit of moaning in forums all over the board that you've been persecuted for your opinions, which is patent nonsense.

The worst thing which has happened (beyond having those opinions subjected to criticism) is that you've been asked on at least a couple of occasions to refrain from baiting other posters and you received one warning for having persisted in such baiting after having previously been asked to stop. You've got no grounds whatsoever for complaint concerning the fairness of your treatment in this forum at any time; if anything, you've gotten a great deal of slack.

You know perfectly well what you were doing here and you know perfectly well why you were called on it, just as you've been called on it before, and there'll likely be a trolling warning in it for you if I see it again. Now go forth and behave yourself.

Personally, I love Quinto's Spock. Quinto does more emoting with his eyes than most actors do with their whole bodies. Even when he is perfectly still, you can see an inner life to his Spock.
I haven't noticed. I'll have to rewatch the movies looking out for that. I must have been overwhelmed by the whole spectacular.

Maybe Quinto will become my favourite Spock

Last time I looked, teacake was not a moderator, nor are the other regular members who tend to engage in the "let's gang up on the poster with the unpopular opinion" mentality. If there is a "thou shalt not quote any moderators" rule, please link me to it, as I don't recall ever seeing any such rule.

After having once been reminded that this was not an MA thread, you now have a warning for continuing to try to make it one. (As you've already sent me a PM which makes it clear that discussion remains futile, we'll just skip the further comment part. You may take that up with an Admin, if you wish to pursue it.)

Thread closed, since it's now broken.
