Hey, at least it's got more responses than that stupid I Hate Nudity thread.  This makes for a slightly more intelligent conversation than "Unnnn...boobies baaad"

When you invoke the wrath of Godwin's Law on yourself right  in the thread's title, what do you expect?

Why?? To tell you the truth, I have enjoyed this thread for the following reason:  I have learned more about the people on this forum from this thread than any other.  This discussion has been a respectful exchange of ideas on what is an apparently interesting subject: the significance of forums as a legitimate form of communication.

This thread has not stopped anyone from posting on Movies (Bad or Otherwise), so what's the harm?

Besides, once it dies, then it'll become Undead.  And that's much harder to kill.

It's obviously something a lot of people care deeply about, and I find that encouraging. Hate to say it, but this has been the most stimulating thread to come along in a while. I've really been enjoying it.

If only there had been some sign that our 'rambling' had been taken to heart. Still, aside from a couple of typos and missing commas, Nick's latest post is very well written.

I'm not here to dampen ones pursuit of perfection, but I was always curious about those who made up English grammer, spelling, etc. Who determines the right and wrong of a way of doing things that will reflect or lead to an idea of sorts.

Obviously it's a culmination of things. A language must have rules by which all can understand. I'm not voting against a proper post, but I've always disliked law, business rules, and all man made rules that stand in the way of a true goal.

I will try to proof read my post for now on : ) . Wow, Fifty hits on this post.

...so much as guidelines.  Sometimes they can be broken to prove a point or to express an idea clearer.

52 and counting.  Very interesting thread, I think.

If  you really want to write correctly get yourself a good dictionary and  Strunk's  'The  Elements of Style'.  Strunk's book is the grammar bible for  writers.  

I always have a dictionary handy . Spell checkers are okay, but  only the use of a dictionary can insure you using the right word. English is complex  with words pronounced the same and spelled differently  or vice versa.

My only problem is computer keyboards. I've got to be quick on the backspace key.

We all know perfectly well that the best way to kill the Undead is with a 12 gauge blast to the head. Or a Stake. Or Silver Bullets. Or...

    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.
