dvd talk contests

I wonder why so far behind with the picking of the contest winners. winners have yet to picked for contests that ended over a month ago. not complaining or anything, just curious. Is it that the studios never shipped the dvds?

They're behind? That must be why I haven't received a winners notification...in seven freaking years!

Don't know what you're referring to:

Under the rules for the contests:
"You must live in the United States or Canada."

The only ones which are US only are the Adult ones and that's because Canadian customs is known to seize adult DVDs that they feel don't meet Canada's obscenity rules (which seem to be random and arbitrary like the US's)

just an update. I had planned to pull the winners to all the back contests today but this got delayed due to the malware issue which took 3 full days to resolve.

Oh, oops! Sorry! For some reason I thought Canadians couldnít enter the contests. Goodie, now I can enter!

Yeah, the Canadian Obscenity Rules are random and a lot of the time doesnít make sense whatsoever. They let some stuff in that I didnít think theyíd ever let by, other times they didnít let by stuff that I thought theyíd let by with no problems.

Well I think I won the Caligula dvd but I haven't heard from anyone via e-mail. My name is Robert Reilly but I'm sure there could be many people on here with the same name. You should post the screenames or the cities with the name too.

It's probably not you. There is nothing high class about Caligula
