People like riotinmyskull make me so angry. This is a MOVIE site, and people come here to discuss MOVIES! Just because you think this is a pointless thread, doesn't mean you have to respond in such a rude and condescending manner!

And as to your OP Mark, its an alright movie. It has almost nothing to do with the graphic novel off which it was based, but it is a pretty good little gothic horror film. Don't let people like him prevent you from asking questions in the future. Some of us here on this site like to help people and treat them with respect.

so it's safe to assume you guys haven't read any of the other threads started by the OP.

Or maybe they're aware of the other posts made by you.

Personally, I liked From Hell. Never read the comic though.

Yes. If you have a problem with someone's post the best practice is to report that post rather than responding in kind, or escalating the disagreement.

Mod warning: perhaps you didn't read the note I posted about that post originally. It's a pity for you that you didn't, since you should know by now we don't allow personal attacks here.

It seems every other thread now begins with an apology ( I searched this topic, really I did) because of the rudeness of some members and is really making this forum less and less appealing. When mean spirited posts are made consistenly, I don't think the mods are doing their job by not banning the negative person, just because they didn't resort to name calling.

Re: Is From Hell with Johnny Depp any good?

Since this thread has been reduced to little more than a discussion of who called whom what I'm closing it.

[Please post wisely]

I'd like to amplify wendersfan's comments above: it is disappointing when threads become derailed in this way.

If you think someone is playing posting games &/or seeking to dominate the forum with excessive numbers of thread &/or is a returning banned member, outside of Feedback, within particular threads is not the place to make your point.

So, I am posting to remind members of the "Report This Post To a Moderator" function. And I'm asking that, instead of dumping on fellow members, do please use RTPTaM or the Feedback Forum or PM.

Maybe moderation was undertaken with a light touch here and I am in little doubt that there will be accusations from some that the fun has left the forum as soon as a firmer touch is applied.

Anyhoo, I've cleaned up the original thread and will reopen it for those that would like to contribute constructively.
