Suppose you were walking down the street or snowboarding or buying a DVD or filling up at the gas station or WHATEVER and one of your fellow BADMOVIES.ORG members was right beside you.  How would you recognize him/her/it?  Maybe we should have a secret sign or phrase like the Masons or the Elks or a coillege fraternity.  Perhaps we should compile a list of "secret sign" nominations and then choose one.  Here are a few ideas:

* The Vulcan "Live long and prosper" finger spread;
* The "Our Gang" He-Man Woman Haters Club oath: "We, the He-Man Woman Haters Club, promise not to fall for this Valentine's business, because girls are the bunk."
* "Open Sesame"
* "Shazam!"

Please add your nominations . . .

 Thumbdown How about a simple thumbs down to indicate bad movie...?  Thumbdown

Doesn't happy Godzilla (Gojira) always bring a smile to yer face?   BounceGiggle  Can't applaud you again for six hours, RCBela. 

Well, I suppose Badmoviers could use a verbal signal where we immitate the Godzilla-Flipper-bleat.

How about a short code phrase? Something unique to the board that people would recognize, yet simple enough to remember?

Something like "Beware of the Menard."  TeddyR

Or course, if it was Menard you ran into... Buggedout

The FDA has been looking for a generic name for Viagra. After careful consideration by a team of government experts, it recently announced that it has settled on the generic name of Mycoxafloppin. Also considered were Mycoxafailin, Mydixadrupin, Mydixarizin, Dixafix, and of course, Ibepokin.

From Twice Upon A Time: "Okay, I'm scared. Official."

Or in my case, simply look for a guy who can't seem to keep his finger out of his nose, then go into a lengthy exlplenation of where I'm supposed to know you from, and repeat about fifteen or twenty times. It helps if you wear a name tag, and don't get upset if I ask you if we've met & introduce myself several times.

Something I've always wanted to do, is get one of those musical car horns that plays the Il Tempo Gigate honk, from Flakalipka Grande Prix.

I dunno, maybe I just need to get out more.

We could all do a Kurt Thomas and stand on our hands, pretending to climb up some stairs.

We would just have to check the integrity of our undies first.  Buggedout

I already use the "gooble-gobble, one of us" among friends, but anyone could call me out by my collection of cult movie themed T-shirts.  I rarely wear anything else.

I think the problem with the greeting is that you have to be in close proximity to each other.  We need something so that we can find each other over long distances.  I suggest a distinctive call.  Every hour, on the hour, hunch down and let out a loud call like, "Baaaaaaaaachhhhhhaaaaaa!   Baaaaaaaaachhhhhhaaaaaa!  Woooooooo  Whoop  Whoop  Whoop!"  Use a bullhorn to get extra distance out of the call.  If you hear a call, answer it and work your way closer to the other forum member, calling out return calls every few minutes.

I use this to find Katie in the mall.  She comes running immediately.
