I want to be Ripley when I grow up.

I know of several sites that think they have followed this advice, only to aggressively weed out the constructive faction, leaving the real a-holes behind to rule the roost.  Pity.   Lookingup

This place is an anomaly.  A happy aberration.  TeddyR  Andrew is a magician!  (Presumably with a little help from the merry band.)   Cheers

People here are so nice we very rarely have to ban anyone. It's because Andrew has created a culture of friendliness here.

There is a responsibility that I have to "hold the line" and hopefully create a balance of discussion and respect.  However, and this is a big however, I cannot think of any recent time (and I mean in years) when I have needed to do that.  We have been very fortunate to have such a great group of people.  Thank you all, very much.

No: we should thank you for starting this home for all us bad movie lovers. *HUG*  Smile

     The missus and I really appreciate the climate of civility here; over the years, we've had the misfortune of joining sites that seem similar to those small Southern towns in 50's movies, run by "Boss So-And-So", if you don't fit the ruling clique's philosophy, you're villified scourged, and invited to commit seppuku onscreen.

     Even when a friend (whom we'd invited to join),had issues with others here, he was treated with respect, and folks here simply made it plain that he just wasn't a good fit at the time.

     Thank all of you.

If it's true what they say, that GOD created us in His image, then why should we not love creating, and why should we not continue to do so, as carefully and ethically as we can, on whatever scale we're capable of?

     The choice is simple; refuse to create, and refuse to grow, or build, with care and love.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
