... is to just disappear for awhile. Everytime a flick is released or whatnot.... the board exploads. And not posts that you wanna read, but things like "I liked your movie. Can I be your friend?"
Mind you, everyone has written these posts, but around movie release time, they're just plain ridiculous.
I usually just look for the reds and shoot for that once a film comes out.
Shit, I remember when Chasing Amy came out and most of the board (myself included) had long since talked and discussed the flick because we saw it at the Mini-Gala. Once 'Amy' was released, the board was flooded with a shitload of people rehashing answers we had long since learned. Initial reaction is always "Fuckin' New Jacks," but we were all there once, and while it's annoying, we just gotta suck it up and help out.
So... hide. And hide well... because it's gonna be a mess. But don't disappear, 'cause this is still the coolest fuckin' place on the web.
And pray that sean's around to tell people to "Read the Fuckin' Summaries!!!"
IS sean still around? Sean.... are you still around?
