I think the poll in this thread shows clearly what the majority wanted - and did not get - thanks to Mr Wells. So the majority who voted on this topic are definitely not being led anywhere by Mr Wells and his attention-seeking antics.

It certainly appears that JW's efforts managed to garner support from both Woody Allen and Martin Scorsese, and this may well have been at least part of the reason for the change of heart.
I don't agree with all of his comments, but this sort of 'attention seeking' should be supported. Without it we may not have had Shane on Blu-ray in the originally intended ratio.
You may say that even a stopped clock is right twice a day, but it would seem churlish to criticise a malfunctioning timepiece even on those two chronologically serendipitous occasions.
