I wonder what would happen if everyone just put Batfan on their Foe list and ignored him. He'd probably realize that the way he's spending time, while he's doing it as he pleases, it is a waste. Or he may not because he really is that thick.

Because you haven't been hostile and insulting enough already? That sounds like the tactic of a bully, who doesn't know how to deal with people. I would probably be less harsh and negative in my comments if the response to my comments wasn't as dismissively insulting, vile and as hostile each and every time I write something, no matter what it is. I could say 'how wonderful that the sky is blue' and people would tell me to GTFO. If you guys weren't constantly saying how awful I was for expressing my opinion that happens to often be negtaive (because, lets' be real when there's something I don't have a problem with I don't usually comment on it) or how awful my opinions are I would probably not even feel the need to defend myself each and every time. But since many of you choose to be confrontational and rude about these things I am often forced into a position to defend myself when I don't necessarily want to.
I at least acknowledge that your own opinions have some validity. Just because I despise the Hollywood consumer culture in all its vapid meaninglessness doesn't mean I can't see where you guys are coming from in your rather optimistic and passionate engagement with popular culture and I would not criticise your positive attitude at all, contrary to what you guys choose to do here with me on the forum. I happen to have a different outlook on Film, the purpose (or lack thereof) of Art, and probably Life in general than most of you who get angry and impatient with people who are on the more negative side of the opinion spectrum. I happen to assume my negativity and see it for what it is: just another outlook. See? No big deal, move on. Fact is, you guys jumped on the opportunity to derail the conversation by focusing on how stupid my small, and insignificant my comment was and how stupid I am for making it.
You know where this whole discussion came from? I had the audacity to write that someone was right about something that I took to mean that box office does not matter over quality and then people started playing semantics because they felt the need to criticise me for something and the rest followed from there because you couldn't just leave it alone. Because when I attack the things you like you probably feel like I'm attacking the people who like it. I don't generally do that, nor do I attack people who dislike stuff or assume they're trolls or whatever. I also don't like to talk about people in third person as if there was no way to talk to me directly about a problem you have with me and my way of expressing myself. Have the courage to actualy do that and we can talk like adults.
