Well goodness, I haven’t had much reason to add anything to this thread of recent, it’s been so boring and ho-hum over at Nutrateville that I haven’t had anything worth spending the time to correct or make fun of. The recent meltdown on buying grey market DVD’s was just a repeat of similar self-righteous posturing over the years over there, and making fun of Doug Sulpy is shooting fish in a barrel, so why bother?
But it was fun to take a gander over there today and see that even the posting of the lovely review of my book by Leonard Maltin has gotten some frothing mouths filling with foam again, one nameless loser (oops, sorry Blackbird, exercising my right of free speech too) tirading about me tirading in this thread about my banning from Nutrateville “for five whole pages” like I wrote every post here. Hmmm, maybe he should have actually read it a bit, and seen all the nice folk defending me and wishing me well, or even Mr. Birchard who came over for a snit and an argument. And accusing me of jumping on him for wishing folk a Merry Christmas? I had to go look that one up, and I only kidded him for wishing everyone Merry Christmas a day early, this he takes as a horrible assault? How do these people get through an entire day?
Whatever, it shows that the level of maturity over there is still pretty pathetic. The place is pretty much taken up by anonymous OCD’ers who hide behind their fake monikers and pretend to know something about movies. It’s interesting how many articles of recent I have been seeing about the problems of internet pettiness and the anonymous monikering that allows some pretty unbalanced folk to get on the net and act like petty children. Funny, we don’t seem to have much of that over at Silent Comedy Mafia, everybody knows everybody here.
In any event, thought I’d add a new two cents to this “tirade”, especially as it still seems to be getting a lot of hits every day. I was wondering who the hell was reading it now. Must be some obsessive Nutratevillers who just can’t seem to let go of things, they really do need to get lives.
