LJ has inched dangerously close to blatant racism in her remarks - and been called out for it.

Hmmm. Haven't seen any evidence of this myself. I do remember a big hubbub about her use of an ambiguous Hitler quote or something at her school, but, to me that was all about stirring the pot at her school, the ethics, the moral dilemmas, etc. (the usual stuff you go through in college), and not hatred. However, everyone and anyone can be offended easily by anything or everything, so that thread seemed to devolve quickly. I think if she were really showing and posting her hatred, I don't think she'd still be around. I think the easily-offended PC crowd is the minority.

Yeah - but that wasn't the first time.

Despite my repuation, I'm not a guy who cares what people say or and I'm not really into all that PC stuff that much, and I'm certainly not easily-offended.  But defending anything said by Hitler because it could be good in another context was a bit much IMO.  Either way, it probably won't come up again. 

Overall, though, LJ and DBB seem to me to have always been respectful of others, and even if it means more overall posts, that's a step in the right direction.

DBB sure, but time and time again LJ has inched dangerously close to blatant racism in her remarks - and been called out for it.

BTW - the consensus is roughly 99% sure that the picture IS her.

I went ahead and made an order at the Deep Discount DVD sale...


Jane Austen the COmplete Collection Boxed Set (for the girlfriend)
Beverly Hills Cop II
Beverly Hills Cop III
Fire in the Sky
The Atomic Cafe

Just around 80$ total - not bad at all.

Age is probably a huge factor too.

I'm just hoping I find the new stuff before they fix the error so I can argue my way down to $4.77

And as far as "substance," I don't think you should actually expect to find much of it on any toy-collecting forums. Like I said before, RS is pretty entertaining because of its geek-fest posting, and if they could get rid of the disrespectful dimwits that post there, it'd be even more so.

There's lack of substance, then there's lack of substance.  We're not talking about a dissertation on nuclear physics versus a tirade about the price of the VOTC.  We're talking about the difference between a thread on the Incredibles or some generic movie and what you liked about it versus a bunch of posts soley comprised of :) 's and !!!!!!!!'s. 

Some people treat it like a chat room where anything that flutters into your head must be posted.

Just saw that I clinched a playoff spot!  Looks like I can give the guys a rest for the remainder of the season.  ;)

Lady Jaye = 42 posts since she became a Mod!  ::)

I'd be willing to bet that less than 1 of them had any degree of substance whatsoever.

Lady Jaye bringing decency to the Scum? I SERIOUSLY doubt it. She's probably one of the WORST padders there, only behind GNT.

Not only is she terrible when it comes to that, but she's been on haitus for months now.  She's going to just be granted moderator status after that?

Given the types of people they want as mods over there, I'm officially eternally grateful to have NOT been chosen.

I'm reading Angels and Demons.

Very fun.


I'm starting to wonder if they might have not been done deciding on if they wanted more (because they left the thread in the forum feedback section open) and I'm shooting myself in the foot for consideration from here on out.

So be it.

Given the fact that they'd pick DBB I think you're right DP.

Of course, if they came over here and read that I had reservations about it, I'd hardly be the frontrunner for the job.  But it's a little insulting regardless given the choice they made.   At least I seemed to be the popular choice among the proletariats...

Thanks :)  When you pick up Jerome Bettis in the 12th or 13th round as insurance never expecting him to play and he's among the league leaders in TD's it helps alot.  Of course, so does Peyton Manning throwing 31 TD's in 10 weeks.

Did Pinkston ever get that 3 yard catch famine needed?

The end is nigh.

What's next?  Cinemaddiction as a mod?

Pretending that this is still the "Scum continues it's downward spiral" Thread, I'll post this here:

It's officially over! 

They apparently didn't choose me to be a mod.

Instead - going with the superior choice of....

Darth Big Boy.
