Be Excellent to Each Other

Postby TheoW » Wed Aug 19, 2020 8:12 pm

Of late there have been a few two many posts on the forum that have verged into insults and attacks on the author. That really isn't acceptable, and please report such posts that you might run into. It's fine not to like something, not everything is for everyone, and that's fine. But if you don't like, just don't read it.

We're all a bit weird here, that's why we are part of this place. So lets just try to keep it being at least decedent between each other. There is no call for insults or personal attacks.

I think it's really ironic that The Changing Mirror is close to the LAST public media site I visit, with any regularity, to have trouble with trolls. Everywhere else on the 'web has them, and sadly now this place does too.

If (or rather, when) I get something else written it'll be here :)

Party on, dudes!

Just wondering, Theo, was the title to this post a pull from that movie or, if you don't know what the hell I'm talking about, just a coincidence? If it was, awesome use of the reference my friend. If not, it just goes to show great minds think alike.

It's very much a reference to Bill and Ted. I grew up with that movie. :)

I know this is just bragging, and bragging I'm in no position to prove, but I know the fellow who was head of visual effects for "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure," and even worked with him a few times. His name is Mauro Maressa, but that proves nothing because I could look that up in the IMDb.

Splendid fellow, GREAT artist, but he'd be rather shocked to see any input of mine on this site :P

Cool, I rewatched it recently (in advance of the third film coming out), and the effects still hold up pretty well, especially considering it was from 1989.

I'd like to see Ibee M. banned from this site. He has a lengthy out of control history of caustic and biting comments that have nothing to do with a legitimate story critique. He will also occasionally mock writers with extreme sarcasm, posting under various aliases, including "dumbbond", "ShesInDisguise", "MonkeyTennis" and others. Finally, he tries to give the impression that he has some authority to impose his will upon everyone. He may be using an onion router that escapes you picking up duplicate IP addresses. Thank you.

If you feel a comment is out of line, attacking someone, or simply taking things to far, you need to report the post and I will be able to review what was said and by who. As for the possibility of sock puppets, there are some users who use VPNs, anonymizes, onion endpoints or other such tools, and while that does only hide the source IP, it doesn't hide the fact that they are doing that or other information about their machine. I have no plans to block them as I know a few users who use them due to national firewalls. If you believe someone is a sock-puppet, once again report the post and I can look into it.

Ok. Understood. I hereby officially report Ibee M. to be a sock-puppet.

Sorry, I saw it, that one posts really seemed to go nuts after I stopped watching it-I noticed that you locked it because I didnt think it would descend there.
