Son, we live in a world that has forums, and those forums have to be guarded by Mods. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Nickman? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Lucy, and you curse GE. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know -- that GE’s moderation, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, keeps threads on track and under the appropriately sized, highlighted green headings.
You want moderation because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that forum -- you need me on that forum. We use words like "stay on topic," "use the appropriate forum," "please delete." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very moderation that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather that you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you get a green handle and edit a post. Either way, I don't give a DAMN what you think about moderation.

Well look I wasn't going to call you that, but I guess it's the right word

Finally got around to watching "The Red Pill" doco last night and seeing what all the fuss was about, no wonder the far left tried to stop it showing in Australia, was very interesting.

Just watched Denial.

Excellent film.

More films like this please. Less films like Thor III.

Worst movie of the year, hands down is mother! The exclamation point in the title is for how terrible it is

Anyone else excited about the possibility of a Flash Point movie? I reckon Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Batman would be epic!

Watched Blade Runner 2049 last night. It's been a long, long time since I saw the first one but from memory I thought (with this new one) they did a really good job on maintaining the feel/style of the original. It's nice to see that Hollywood can still manage to come up with something creative and enjoyable amidst all the **** they churn out, especially this current trend of rebooting old films that don't need to be rebooted.
