Good on you Dread for all of your volunteer work- that is very comendable. Now I should start by saying that I am a 'she' and not a 'he' and I am sorry if I upset you by 'personally attacking' you- didnt mean too. It just makes me wonder why you waste so much time finding so many holes in Moore's work and yes, it is a free country and YOU do, have every right to do so with your time as you please.. I know that there are hhhhhhhheeeeeeeaps of things that piss me off, but I dont spend my time continually dredging up dirt on the issue, so I guess it just amazes me that you do this and you are so passionate about it............now dont get me wrong, I am not a Moore lover, I actually believe that a fundamentalist (speaking metaphorically) is dangerous, regardless of their topic, but I do see that a lot of the issues that pertain to what Moore questions and the themes addressed in this thread, for some reason are endemic to America and I just scratch my head and go, why???

Your getting angry about what I said and completely missing the other 80% of my initial post, is exactly what I am talking about. Sorry, but if the tables were turned, I, just would not be sooooooooo upset- (maybe it is just the Australian 'larikin' humour in me) it wasnt intened as a personal attack, I am not that childish and trivial, it was merely a slight of hand comment, but then I keep on forgetting how paranoid and jumpy some people (no names mentioned!!!) are

Your profile did not specify gender. Sorry if I Offended.

If you frequent FYM, I also post on other topics. I read your whole post...And I stand by my reaction to the part directed at me. I have no reason to address the other part of your post it was well thought out and I agreed with parts of it.

As for people being jumpy maybe they would be less jumpy if you were not making ssumptions about their lives from a message baord.

sorry Dread, I hardly even noticed that part -- it was the general essence of the rest of the post I was applauding.

Moore drama

Moore accused of publicity stunt over Disney 'ban'

Quote:
Less than 24 hours after accusing the Walt Disney Company of pulling the plug on his latest documentary in a blatant attempt at political censorship, the rabble-rousing film-maker Michael Moore has admitted he knew a year ago that Disney had no intention of distributing it.

i'm really not surprised mr moore knew of this earlier. his purpose and the facts he tries to present get so lost in his showmanship.

Exactly. That's one of the two reasons I hardly bother looking at this forum anymore. Besides, it seems like half the threads that are started here are intended solely to annoy particular people and the other half degenerate into that after a few posts. It just gets boring after a while.

Nice post.

if only he used this showmanship without having purpose and facts to present
he would be a brilliant politician

If you don't like the direction in which you think FYM is going, leaving will not change that. I encourage everyone who has various beefs with FYM to advise the moderators and to STAY, and continue to post differing opinions and perspectives.

FYM mods have been criticized as being too American and being anti-American, as too conservative and too liberal, as too censorious and not censorious enough. So I'm not sure what to tell you except that of the six FYM mods (the four "super mods" plus two others who work FYM specially), only three are American (Bonochick, Sicy, and myself); the other three are Australian (Angela Harlem), Dutch (Salome), and British (Anthony). I don't think this internationalism happens in any other forum, as most of the mods are American, and I suspect Elvis assigned us to FYM on purpose to help maintain an international perspective.

We do the best we can, but running away to your respective corners and pouting won't change anything. That will just help FYM to become even more narrow and predictable than you claim it already is.

For the record, I wasn't making any judgement about the FYM mods. I think you all do a great job and I can think of literally no more than one or two occassions when I've actually disagreed with your decisions.

I'm not "running away to [my] corner and pouting." I'm simply making a decision that since I don't really enjoy this forum that much anymore, and since I seem to receive insulting emails from a particular FYMer every time I post here, I may as well stay away. I wouldn't even have said anything about that, but for the fact that I read OzAurora's post and thought she made some good points so I posted a quick message saying so.

I don't know why I'm even bothering to type this really. I mean...it's an internet forum, how much does this really matter to anyone? All I actually wanted to say was that my post was in no way intended as a criticism of any of the mods and I'm sorry it was interpreted that way. That's all.
