Does this warrant members ganging up on an individual that has
an opposing opinion?
Does this mean that the one individual who enjoys the movie as
it is being released has no respect for the filmmaker or their vision?
I didn't expect the level of dialogue here to degrade to the point where
people are afraid to come in here and express an opinion that may
not be popular with others.
HTF was built upon the promise of respectful dialogue between
members of different opinion. Once again, I find myself having to step
into a thread where the level of discussion has regressed into something
that should not belong in a forum like this.
Some members, who I have previously approached about this kind of
behavior are back in the driver's seat heading the attack.
It will cease immediately.
I find it amazing that a moderator would actually write a post like this. Why not just come out and say "listen, I agree with TomM, and will not tolerate anything else said". Really Ronald, it is sad to see you putting together a a response like this. Do you not relize that so many of us feel extremely strongly about the cut version Disney put out? I'm really disappointed with you making a post like this. You have always been a fair moderator, and this is exactly the type of post that pulls you out of that position. Please allow the voices of us that want the full version of the film be heard...
