Man, this was just an interested person wanting to know something.
In the time it took to think up and write a sarcastic response, you could just TEACH the person by : SCROLL DOWN *NT*
Then they scroll, 'learn' how, and never piss you off again.
I've been on this board since damn near the begining, and left when the flames start to become more frequent.
What we have here is NEW people, probably seeing this site for the first time after Clerks:TC, and Dogma....or hearing about Fletch.
The point being, at first, it may have been a hip 'major fan ' only site.
Now it is an introductiion to Kevin's world, and you can flame people with 'Read the Summaries'(And its "fun" variations), or be a pal and just answer the q. if the poster does it a few more times, THEN maybe a nod to the summaries is cool. Or ,answer it with a link to the summaries. You'd be suprised how quickly you wouldn't have to deal with these people ever again.
I used to post to ask questions, a LONG time poster pointed me to the way of the Summary really nicely...so I don't really post much, or clutter the board. Most of the info is..In the Summaries!
I don't need to know Kevin's opinion on a movie I rented, I figure he has better things to do. That, and my world is fille dout by reading NewsAskew and all of this boards posts, most of which answer every question.
Now, Kevin is REALLY going mainstream, and most of us, I believe dreagged al our non-Smith loving fans to 'Dogma' and probably bragged about this site where The Man sometimes speaks....if enough people get slammed, it could have some reaction at the Box Office....people might associate Kevin with assholes.
Inevitably, there are some insecure few who will read this and then piss all over it(And me) just to prick wave.
In the meantime, thanks to the posters who have, since day one, been nice, answered my stupid ass questions, and keep the board alive.
For those that think its funny, or are just repressed, rage on.
Butyou ARE right.it IS all in the summaries, or watching the board for a few days.
BTW-What breed of bird was that in the upper left of the screen in the park scene of Chasing Amy?
(I know THAT shit isn't in the summaries).
