Him and handfuls of more people who could help out society. We don't have much now unfortunately.
Yeah, he would've been a great inclusion in that Gal Gadot video last year.
As cringey as that was it was still a better effort than WW 1984. Bet it's got more views than the flick too
In fairness, it is easier to finish watching a three-minute video than a 2Ĺ-hour film, but then again I only watched the latter so who knows.

I meant for movies, but sure. Why not.
Probably a silly question to ask when it's almost August, but I take it we're not doing the "best of year" awards thing for 2020 then?

That might have something to do with it. Maybe there's also the matter of how a PM is guaranteed to get someone's attention more so than bumping a thread (and a new user would not necessarily know that you can do that by quoting/mentioning a user in a post, which I'm not sure that any other forums do).

Could he/she be shy? That you (and only you) responded, might suggest you're the only one interested. In a weird way, why NOT take it to PM for more direct conversation on the topic? I'm kidding, mostly, but I can see that thought playing out.

Oh. It's not me, btw. I do weird things from time to time, but that's not as obvious a tactic I think I would take. Hm. Unless this Shout escalation is tier II of my devious plot...

Yeah, no. Not me. For real.
Maybe that's the logic, but then why the gaps between messages? The first one was just a straight-up statement so I disregarded it but then the second message came four months later and had a question in it so this hardly strikes me as the most direct way of handling a conversation, especially when another question comes along in another four months.

Ah, I might as well answer but it's just not an interesting topic. The question's like "how would you change Iron Man 3?". Short answer: I wouldn't. Long answer: No, I would not change Iron Man 3.
Here's a weird scenario. Some guy signs up here almost a year ago and makes exactly one post, a thread complaining about Iron Man 3. I am the only person to respond to this thread and question him. Since then, this user has not posted a reply in the thread but instead sent me three separate PMs - one in September, one in January, and one just this week - in an effort to continue the conversation. I haven't replied to any of his messages because I find this approach so bizarre. Now I'm wondering why he keeps coming back here every few months for seemingly no other reason than to try asking me about Iron Man 3 (and by doing it through PM rather than in the thread).
TETSUOOOOOO
