There are a lot of good people on this board. When my cat passed away a few weeks ago, I received many condolences which made me feel better and I greatly appreciate that!

Henry. First I've heard of your cat passing. I hope you at least played the "Harry & Tonto" album. I wonder if cats or dogs respond to a score, one way for the delicate piano of Bill Conti and another way for the bombastic orchestra of Williams or Goldsmith. Is there a separate thread for such a musing? Anyway, hope another cat is in your abode by now.


I have 3 cats, so I have something to look forward to. Henry, did you get condolence gifts too?

PS: Is there a soundtrack album for Cat Ballou?

This thread is a joke, quite frankly.

For those of you who were born yesterday, this place hasn't gone to the dogs just lately. It's always festered with elitist children.

President Reagan died in 2004 and a few here put on the most disgustingly juvenile displays you could imagine. According to them, Reagan was to blame for disease taking out those who were too fucking stupid to keep their pants up and their mouths shut.

So I don't give credence today to the crying of the self anointed Enlightened on this site with their "there goes the neighborhood" neo-racism.

Please don't anyone explain it for them.
Figuring it out for oneself is so much more satisfying.

Only thing I got from that is that this one guy appears to approve of people dying of AIDS.

How so?

Be specific. Give examples.

When I first joined I found him to be occasionally annoying and provocational to the point of exasperation.
At his worst, prickly--but never hostile.
But once I had him figured out, I learned to have fun with it.
I didn't find him to be abusive, per se.
There are still others here that could more accurately be labelled as such, but they are just better at flying it under the radar.


Good points oct. I think Bruce's blunt replies were probabably taken the wrong way by too many. He never shirked from ribbing people or calling something out but sometimes the tone of the written word loses its meaning/humour/tongue in cheek. He also suffered because he didnt use emojis very well, eg using angry ones when he shouldve used smileys.
He and i gave each other dogs abuse but it was just amusing banter. He had this with a few other posters too. However, where i think he probably endangered himself more was by wandering to the edge of the cliff on politics far far too often.
I will espec miss his contribution to Python subjects and morricone/leone stuff.

You were referring to a different disease then?

No, the post was a statement about hypocrisy.

Wow, really? You're going to play dumb about what you said above?

You wrote: "According to them, Reagan was to blame for disease taking out those who were too fucking stupid to keep their pants up and their mouths shut."

Clearly, you are saying that these victims of AIDS ("those" in your sentence) "were too fucking stupid to keep their pants up and their mouths shut", with the CLEAR implication that THEY are to blame for their deaths.

Apart from bringing politics into discussion here by invoking Reagan (expressly forbidden in the board rules, so I won't get into his policies on this matter), let me just say that THIS wins the award for the most DISGUSTING, TOXIC, and highly offensive thing I have EVER read here on the forum. So congratulations. I hope a hateful bigot like you is banned post-haste. What you wrote is certainly far more offensive than anything Bruce ever posted, as incredibly obnoxious as he could be.

And there you have the very same hysterics I talked about.

It's not right to have to subsidize the irresponsible. And it's not right to piss on a body not yet cold.

Again, the whole point is that the Enlightened are not the nice guys they claim to be.

I remember the 'red days'! Good times! (although we had our own 'toxic members' to deal with at the time, like Latham Conger III).

Ah, the "red days"... there were days where you did not even have to register on this forum, you could just stop by and start posting (under any identity). I remember I always posted as myself anyway, but nowadays, this board would probably be really toxic if it were the same as back then. The Internet was much smaller then... But the Usenet was still thriving... there were groups like rec.music.classical and rec.music.movies (both of which I subscribed to) tons of unmoderated discussions that -- at least for more or less the most part -- remained on topic. ah, the old days. smile
Having said that, I don't have anyone on my ignore list and don't find this forum particularly toxic, but I don't read every thread (in fact, I only read a very few threads... I just don't have the time) and just skip over the stuff I don't like or care for.

Perhaps the most central FSM forum rule to me seems to be: "you don’t have to be Pollyanna but don’t be a jerk, please?", which is more or less the number one rule I impose on myself when posting stuff.

I have no idea what you're on about, but you're swinging really hard at being unpopular. Nevermind opinion, you're purposely being pointedly antagonistic in a thread where someone else got banned.

Is this really the game you want to play at?

I was thinking we might have "the next contestant on the Price is Right" so to speak.
