I cannot see any warning label with the rest of your info. I can see my own in my posts, but no one else's. My guess is that warning info is for your information and not for public viewing. Thus, you're not branded in our eyes biggrin.gif

Christian, your main Board violation is your Atkins breath. Sorry, but that's the way it is.

I'm currently at "Warn 0%."

Is that actually some indicia of looming board discipline? A sword of Damocles?

Soylent Green, well...it's people!

Kaiser Soze? Keep an eye on the limping quiet guy.

Bruce Willis is dead and oblivious to it!

(Aside, has anyone here heard the supposed twist to Shyamalan's new film? I'm still trying to stifle giggles.)

The sweet girl is the killer in Sleepaway Camp, and she's got something that girls don't got!

That Sleepaway Camp spoilage should be enough in itself to get me over 33%!

And, Peter, lets just say that if the reports are true, this has to represent some sort of watershed, wow-I-can't-believe-he-did-that-and-thinks-it's-clever moment.

Aww, you guys are such teases. I just saw the first trailers while watching 6th Sense (again) on TV the other night. Life is so unfair! tongue.gif

Ha!

I am going to make it my goal to hover at 66%, so whatever it takes to get there I will take it. Any suggestions for films I can spoil?

Hey, speaking of Planet of the Apes (the original),  did you read where Ingrid Bergman's greatest career regret is turning down a part in that film (I'm assuming she was offered the role of Dr. Zira).  Read all about it.

Hey Mike, I already posted that here.
