For what it's worth, I agree with you that discussions about any particular film should not be constrained. I don't think we shouldn't discuss it; I'm just concerned about the "how" of that discussion. I'm not asking that we treat anything with "kid gloves"... but how about, oh, I don't know... "saint gloves"?
I think this point was were I thought Peter had a real point. And I understand your point. And certainly, as a creative person who still aspires to film, television and comics... I would certainly be saddened to come here and see myself being attacked. But I think it is possible to express critical thought about films and the industry with generosity towards the people in it. And not just the Christians... Even the Brett Ratners (for myself) or the Zak Snyders... I mean, if I was hard at work on something and with little info, people were writing it off as "meh" or demanding to know why it was getting made (sentiments I have heard from practically everyone including me)... It would feel a bit like...well...a kick to the crotch. So, I think Peter's initial idea of not being able to discuss the industry for fear of not hurting feelings is too limiting. But I get the core idea Jeff is suggesting of doing so gracefully.
I appreciate that this could be resolved generously on all sides. I may be an agnostic...but I appreciate reading the insights here. I like the folks here. I think Peter and Jeff make valuable contributions to the discussions on this board, and would prefer not to see either gone...by personal choice or force.
Finally, regarding your connectivity issues... ever thought about becoming a Mac?
I agree with this sentiment as well.
