    I won't. I think the conversation needs to move on before it gets even more personal, rather than the snipping.

    I don’t feel bad calling out sexism. In fact, I would feel bad if I didn’t call out terrible behavior.

    But, moving on.

    It's a pity you don't know to feel bad when you foolishly call out that which *isn't* sexism as being such. But my days of not expecting sense out of you are decidedly coming to a middle.

    Moving on now, yes.

    Common sense isn't so common. I'd repeat my call for Gossett & Co. to make this and put LFIM in his place, but that would just make it worse (LFIM would never shut up then.....)

    Well, things have fallen off a cliff, in a manner of speaking.

    Not worth their effort. Peters is irrelevant. :borg:

    There's an Ignore feature on this website. If you (or anyone else, for that matter) are having issues with another board member, perhaps you would like to take a brief self-imposed vacation from them.

    Life's too short for cheap shots.

    From the above article:
    OMG! "Lawyer By Training" Alec Peters IS A MORON PURE AND SIMPLE! He' going to get into another lawsuit situation with CBS if he actually goes forward with that. A BOOK based on the Star Trek IP is another form of licensed product, and OF COURSE guidelines for Fan Films aren't going to cover other forms of media as a BOOK is NOT A FAN FILM.

    I really don't get Mr. peters logic here. "It's okay for me to do and sell an AXANAR Art Book because there's nothing against it in the fan film guidelines..."

    WTF?:cardie::confused::rofl:

    I'm going to laugh my ass off if that moron Alec Peters goes forward with such a thing and then wonders why CBS either tries and C&D or just starts a lawsuit about/against said "AXANAR Art Book". Hell, CBS COULD also go after him for the Coffee he was selling in the past too.

    I gotta say, I hope Mr. Peters tries it because I'm sure IF CBS goes after him this time with a lawsuit, they WON'T offer a settlement - and if/when they receive a Judgement for damages CBS will garnish everything he makes to the point he'll have to do EVERYTHING in cash and not even keep a bank account as once CBS sees it, they'll garnish any balance.:rommie:

    How can someone who claims to have worked with major studios as an archivist and props auctioneer have ZERO CLUE about how actual product licensing for any major entertainment IP ACTUALLY WORKS?

    Anyone else notice the massive discrepancies in views on videos and subscribers? Me thinks Alec's paid for a few things.

    I don't understand those 6+million values under "video views". What is that about?

    I believe that's the channel's total views. the + figure would be additional that day.

    I love the pic. Peters is frozen at just the right "insane asshole" look.

    Meanwhile, I refuse to be surprised that he thinks he's going to make money off an Axanar art book without pissing off CBS and Paramount...as if he totally missed the whole Dr. Seuss trek book lawsuit.

    I don't believe there are enough facepalms on the planet to cover this.:rolleyes:

    Although it would explain how Captain Picard went bald! ;)

    If that's what it is, then how can it ever be negative?

    Even though RMB has NOT been served with papers from Peters 2 weeks after the lawsuit was filed, it appears he has a competent attorney and is ready to rumble. This is better than anything LFIM could film.

    We had issues with our own version of a legal beagle in his own mind tried to take us to collections over 1st and last months rent. Well 20 years ago we paid 1st and the last month rent. hows it our fault the difference is 3 grand higher.
    Once our lawyers were done combing all the illegal rent hikes. fake copy and paste court documents he served us with, it isn't looking good for this property managements firm. Personally I just wanted to get this idiot off my back and move on. Last I heard the lawyers we used were contacting this property managers clients.
    I only post this because there are people out there that think if they push hard enough, act like they know what they are doing, they can bluff people into anything.
