    Perhaps your concept isn't appreciated because it's clearly wrong and grounded in nothing but your own reactionary tendencies?

    we've got your posts in this very thread equating "women and brown people" in media being a bad thing that's being forced on you at the expense of white male preeminence though. Whether you like it or not, this is why you come across as a racist piece of shit

    no... we called your criticisms racist and sexist first. likely because you used (and continue to use) all the dog whistle buzzwords. That you also use those same terms in many topics is why we call you racist and sexist...

    and face it, people like you aren't fans. you hate watch so you can complain online and delude yourself that you're getting people riled up when in fact you're just another bozo bag for us.

    Here's the thing, Dicky doesn't know fuck all about me or those Youtubers, he just doesn't like their politics, therefore they're Nazis or CHUDS. He makes shit up all of the time, but I don't see you or anyone else but UA asking him to back up his claims. He gets a free pass all of them time.

    There's obviously a subset of the fan base that calls people sexit or what not if they criticize Discovery because we have a third member here that has brought it up. Do you think I or UA have any influence over @Crosis36 ? It's obviously happening. Furthermore; the search function is pretty shitty and people often ask me to search for specific words or phrases in threads that have hundreds of posts, it often hard to find. Sometimes I do find them though. The only other way to find them is to manually scroll through the threads to find what you're looking for. Sorry, but that's not reasonable to ask someone to do. I'm not the only one who has complained about the search function, by the way.

    Rest assured, the next time I encounter something like this I will gladly save the page and happily point it out to you.

    I am once again asking TPTB to change the editing permissions to allow editing of a post for, say, 12 hours after it has been put up. That would allow people to deal with hiccups, typos and other problems within a reasonable timeframe.

    Remember: the supposed rationale for the change, to satisfy the notion that people are not stealth editing posts, is a fool's errand.

    Buffy was so much better when taken away from the manchild Whedon and made into the movie. I get why people were so into the whole thing, but it was pretty obvious whedon was a fucking problem. He was like those atheists who were really trying to get preachy and hateful just like the cult of christianity. All he needed was a little bit of popularity before he would become everything he was mocking.

    Hey look we got an excellent scene with Picard and Ro in Picard season 3.

    Dayton asking what happened to Ensign Sato after I told him that she had died. Then @shootER proceeds to tell him the same thing.

    What's to know?
    They're not philosophers with complex premises.
    Their thumbnails blurbs read like a UA post when you scan past a page of them like comic strip panels.
    UA's posting record is like having a subscription to these twits.

    Such claims are not backed up by evidence or reality. Ro was horrible and her actress was a fucking snob who was shit to fans at conventions. I have seen a number of actors and VAs at cons and Michelle forbes has been the worst ever. By a longshot too. Imagine Ro being more bitchy with a bigger stick up her ass and then you have Forbes talking to the crowd.

    do you get off on a woman reacting to you as if you were a huge creep while speaking to you for money? The convention I saw her at was one where she was the headliner. It was a tiny con in danbury CT. She had clear disdain for the crowd.

    OTOH there was Spice williams, the klingon woman from the fifth movie. she had two or three lines total in the whole start trek universe, and she was cool as fuck. She also played the Guyver (in the suit). She hung out in the dealer room with the five of us who were there telling stories after her panel for hours. The only other person who I had met in such a small con with such an intimate setting was Andrew Lincoln during the prime of TWD. If you ever go to a convention he is at and it is small, he talks to people.

    Ro was just so bothered by being present. Why even bother doing conventions if you dislike the fans that much.

    No, but to someone else, and then she shoots them; yeah, that's Aeon.

    Never really was a fan of Aeon. I was more a head sort of person. I remember watching Reign and realizing the artist of AF could make the most awesome ideas really shitty looking.

    FF keeps a butt-hurt list of people who've scored points off him, and then he draws from that list when he works up a whine-fest.

    I've never met Michelle Forbes (and I've met a LOT of the actors), but I know that some actors just aren't as personable as others. They really run the gamut.

    Did you not say that when you criticized Discovery you were called transphobic or something like that?

    Oh! Yes, yes I was. Specifically because I said Gray was a bland, awful character created just to score PR points.

    You actually are transphobic, Captain Groomers.
    So collect your crocodile tears into a baggie, and enema yourself with them.

    You see that there's a big difference between "Any criticism about Discovery will get you labeled as a hate criminal" vs "Criticizing a trans character for being bland, awful and creating to score PR points will get you labeled as transphobic," right?

    Not saying that it is wrong or right to criticize someone as transphobic in the latter instance, btw. And I'll point out that I have recently stated and will state again for the record that Gray is a bland character who was underwritten IMO. Somehow, I have not been put in some sort of woke jail for expressing this opinion. (I don't particularly believe TPTB created Gray to score PR points or for some other reason, but if I thought so, I would have no problem asserting that opinion.)

    Also, it should not take too much skill to search Discovery for any posts in which other posters formed a posse to get Crosis for daring to criticize Gray on these grounds.

    By the way, for umpteenth time, I never said trans people were groomers. Never. So you can stop lying about that.
