Post Re: The Top 100
I know Rob was very disappointed, but "Removed - James can put in a review in it's place" was not something I thought I'd ever see. Don't really understand this.

Post Re: The Top 100
Whether Rob likes or not, I'm going to at least put back the movie titles in the topic...titles.

Ah come on Rob. Just last night I watched Playtime and was excited to read your thoughts on it today, only to find out that you've deleted all your posts in some sort of half-hearted effort to inspire James. Now don't get me wrong, the interest in classic, intelligent film around here is mostly in the shitter, but that doesn't mean you have to rebel against the establishment like this. I can understand leaving, but why delete all your thoughts? You're doing us all a great disfavor and wasting more time on a forum you're fed up with.

P.S. If you do read this and have your write-up on Playtime sitting around, could you send it to me? I'm mighty curious to find out what you thought.

The Cinematic Journey is still up Zepplin at http://reelviews.net/reelviewsforum/viewtopic.php?f=27&t=712, so you can try to find it there.

The easy part of this project's over. Now, since Rob really had to take his ball and go home some of the topics no longer have numbers so I'm going to have to click most of the links on the first two posts to ascertain what goes where. It shouldn't take too long though.

I wish Rob hadn't done that. Berardinelli's participation (or lack thereof) aside, it undermines the participation of those that had written extensively on the films singled out as somehow worthy of getting the tag of "Removed - James can put in a review in it's place". It overvalues James as a forum member (and, in total fairness, he is going to write about what interests him) and colors the participation of everyone else as less worthy. That's unfair to everyone no matter how "minor" the contribution may have been. So, for the record, no matter the state of the forum and how sketchy its future may be, this is no way for someone to make a final appearance.

Well to be fair major, Rob only got rid of his comments but the gist of your post remains the same, it's was a shitty act by a guy who used to be cool that took a journey that made him into a wanker.

Oh and all the topic titles are back up to what they were. I guess the next step is to put all of Rob's comments back in.

A sincere thanks, Patrick, for the repair work on the threads. While I don't know of any one way to spark an interest in the section I can now think of at least one way that doesn't help the situation at all.

Post Re: The Top 100
What exactly happened to Rob that made him snap? It just doesn't seem like something he would do unless he was really agitated. I tried reading through this, but the only thing I'm reading is that he was disappointed that JB isn't participating and therefore deleted all his posts and left. If so, that's weak.

Post Re: The Top 100
First page is now repaired but when there was a "See James review" I just linked it instead of copying and pasting the review. I'm done for the night.

Second page is mostly repaired...can anyone find Rob's comments on The Battle of Algiers in the Cinematic Journey thread cause I can't.

Thanks, Battle of Algiers is now repaired.

Post Re: The Top 100
And it's done. It is what is used to be...except for the lack of pictures and the aforementioned linking to James review instead of copying and pasting.

EDIT: Ed pointed out that there was no Citizen Kane topic which I probably deleted it so that's there and now it's completely totally repaired to the best of my knowledge.

Hey guys,

Rob is not to pleased that I resurrected this area against his wishes and he wants those posts removed or things will get "formal". I don't know or care if he has a case or not but I will be respecting his wishes and be deleting his posts/topics and then making new topics.

:lol: :lol: :lol:
This ranks as the lamest thing I've ever read in my life. The fact that someone would threaten legal action over what transpires on an internet movie forum is beyond words. That's so pathetic I can do nothing but scorn and laugh. Three words come to mind....Get A Life.
