Re: Copyright vs Copywrong

As perhaps a final "pro-copyright, anti-theft" coda, this was published just this week by Variety. Variety reports that each film was downloaded close to 30 million times each on torrent websites. Robocop took a close third at almost 30 million, factoring in illegal downloads from the orig...

Yep. Me too, though largely I'm the one calling it quits. Don't get me wrong: I love the Forums.

It's the rudeness, attacks and animosity I won't miss.


Steve...are you on Skype?


Nope. I work for the phone company. Not really necessary. :oops:

Re: Visual Artist's corner

Not sure if I've shared this here or not (a cursory glance tells me "No") but I've been posting "Picture of the Day" images as well as my last couple of blog entries.

Re: SCIENCE VS RELIGION

Mark - I genuinely like that post...it's remarkably spot-on with my own concerns regarding religion. How many things do followers buy into which fly overtly in the face of established facts? (Evolution; the age of the Universe; etc.) You're quite correct that the sheeplike mind-set is the primary fa...

Re: SCIENCE VS RELIGION

As I'm certain each of you will agree, the majority of all religious stripes tend to be reasonable, sane individuals. It is the fringe and the disenfranchised across all groups that tend to be extremists. I have no statistics, but a percentage of that percentage undoubtedly self-identified as agnost...

I'm too tired to log in as moderator, but this is out of line -- particularly when DOUG isn't here to clobber you.

So allow me: that's an offensive post, Frank. Knock it off.

Re: Visual Artist's corner

I bet you all envy National Geographic's photographers? I've met and talked with a few of them (Ralph Lee Hopkins and Jay Dickman in particular). It sounds like a romantic gig -- and is, in some ways -- but as Andrew notes it's hella work, for a taskmaster organization with exacting standards. I'll...

Re: THE PAVILION ANNEX

Low blow. I say stuff all the time, then I am ignored when I do. I feel it is just fear of the ideas themselves. No...you don't. You may THINK you explain your points, but you really do not. With perhaps two exceptions in the last six months, not a single post of yours goes beyond a handful of sent...

Yep, which is why Sony is objecting so strenuously and threatening to sue.

Re: THE PAVILION ANNEX

You don't post enough verbiage for me to comment on your eloquence. This is the core, if you care to heed it, Frank. I've said this before as well: you're not doing much more than either delivering single thought balloons without details, or telling us to go read it/see it/hear it elsewhere. I have...
