Re: Blu-ray.com Refugees

I think it's neat that there is a small exodus of members from there over here now. I recognize some names. Here's hoping the new folks contribute in the main threads, too.

I'm a member over there, but under a different username, so they can't ban me.

I think I've tangled with Rodney in the Star Wars threads, which narrows it down.

Most of the time no. They'll delete the evidence, though. That's why I screenshot their reasons every time I get banned.

Re: Blu-ray.com Refugees

I don't go to bluray . com, was there some specific incident or issue that caused refugees here?

I said the exact same thing. I told everyone, why is this happening now all of a sudden? The Blu-ray mods have always been like this. Having said that, I do notice that the Blu-ray mods have been on a banning spree lately.

Sounds like a bunch of trifling dickheads over there. Here it's just a relaxed group of rich middle-aged dudes with gorgeous wives, private jets, and gigantic dicks.

Re: Blu-ray.com Refugees

I don’t really post much over there, probably because I’m not a child and I enjoy watching movies, not analyzing them.

Once I dared making the comment asking someone if they sat around watching a slipcover when they didn’t get one with their movie and was going to return it. You should seen the response the forum gave me.

I think Jay summed it up pretty well. When there is no more room in hell.
Seriously like with most situations follow the money. Click revenue starts to dry up. Possible "perks" are removed. People start to feel volunteering is not worth their time. Those left behind do not really care. Years of allowing certain individuals to dump their "opinions".
Others feel things have gone to far, so they ask for some kind of method of cleaning. People in "charge" do not want to be told they are slacking.
Promises are made and nothing changes. People are banned for pointing out the slacking. "Opinions" continue.

I'm just still there because there are still members there that we know. Eventually I will get banned again, as usual, so I'm enjoying talking to the members that are left behind while I still can.

Another thing about Blu-ray mods too is that they insult you after they ban you as if they have higher standards or something. Like that time I accidently posted a pic containing an F-bomb. They started talking to me like I was a child or something and banned me. I was like, dude. I didn't know the F-bomb was there.

Again targeting. There were at least 3 active images of others doing the same. Yet no one reported those posts, or they were ignored. Just start recruiting people over here or to rediit. I see only a few people keeping threads alive. Let it die.

I asked for clarification on the rules, because there was an uptick in Threadcrapping and personal insults- specifically people calling others (myself included) idiots for opinions.
Then Permanent ban for "Since I'm so unhappy with the rules & moderation"

Re: Blu-ray.com Refugees

There is one current thread over there that tells you all that you need to know.
The Ghostbusters Afterlife thread

Nothing but unrelenting trolling, which should have been shut down by the mods. Yet they do nothing. If someone bring this up, that person is banned and told to go elsewhere.

The slipcover talk there is bad, but really the steelbook discussions are odder and crazier. I remember when the Wonder Woman 1984 4K steelbook was announced several members of the forum were complaining about how they had to buy a movie that they did not like because it was getting a steelbook release. Didn't make any sense to me, I would rather just spend the $30 on a movie I liked.

Whatís so great about Steelbooks?

Iím still annoyed that slipcovers arenít shrinkwrapped; stores that stuck price tags on them are now largely out of business but thereís still a chance of them going missing in shipment.

Re: Blu-ray.com Refugees

Steelbooks are cool but I'm not going to buy a movie I don't like just to have a steelbook, nor will I pass on a movie I don't like due to lack of a steelbook.
It's a collectible thing like, if there's two options and one is a nice looking steelbook, I might lean towards that.

I get the collector mentality so I probably shouldn't cast aspersions (although my DVD/Blu-ray collecting days are looooong over), but that's pretty fucking stupid.
