    The LGBT stumbling block.

    Pervert.

    The LGBT stumbling block.

    If the world wide web has taught us one thing, it's that if a bunch of people adamantly claim something then it must be true.

    The LGBT stumbling block.

    It's amazing to me how thoughtless people can be on the idea of "love". It's like most people can't get past the idea of Disney princess love they learned from watching cartoons in their childhood. It's also amazing to me that people try and twist the nuanced meaning of words, Greek or English, it doesn't matter...to justify the carnal. People are silly. Love is just a word. It's a word that describes desire. Nothing more or less. Desire, in and of itself, can be very, very good...and it can be very, very bad. It depends on what the desire is directed towards. Loving something evil is not wholesome just because it's "love". Doesn't matter what so-called "kind" of love it is.

    THE BIG LIE.

    Except it isn't the very definition of trolling. A trolling is, according to Merriam-Webster: to antagonize (others) online by deliberately posting inflammatory, irrelevant, or offensive comments or other disruptive content I'll grant that posting a "review" of the movie when one hasn't seen it yet might fit the bill there. That's not what happened. People clicked "I don't want to see this." To presume that was trolling it would need to be proven, something along the lines, that they actually did want to see it but were just clicking they didn't to disrupt things. There is no proof that's what happened. Therefore concluding they are merely trolls is the typical lazy, poor, "fake news" that's the new norm. All indications are that there are myriads of people who are not interested in this movie, legitimately. One doesn't have to look hard to find that. Read any comments section anywhere concerning the movie. The reason why they don't want to see it doesn't make them trolls. There's the strange misconception that if the reason isn't because the movie is bad, fails to entertain, doesn't get laughs, doesn't work emotionally, etc., etc., then the reason must not be sincere. I find it strange that people are so blind -- perhaps intentionally -- nowadays. This is a major battle in a major culture war that may well be a turning point. It's a BIG deal. It doesn't matter if the movie is the most entertaining, well-made, artistic wonder to ever grace the screen. That's entirely irrelevant to how important this is and why this is bothering so many people. Most people who are disenchanted with what's going on probably don't understand this themselves -- but they feel it. They are disgruntled because they sense what's happening. But the best way they can express themselves is to give the move the lowest rating they can and write negative reviews of it. Yes, the reviews, in many cases, are probably not legitimate. But that goes both ways, because both sides sense what's happening. There are many people on the defend-and-sustain bandwagon as there are on the criticize-and-destroy one. And I don't believe either side are insincere in there feelings. This matters. It's a losing battle for the conservative thinking side though.

    That doesn't mean it was "trolled". Just because it made $84M doesn't mean it wouldn't have made double that otherwise, or that the concern and frustration expressed via RT was not genuine. Just reporting what happened. Projections are just that though. They're guesswork.

    The LGBT stumbling block.

    No it isn't. It's a lie they're telling themselves or others to justify something pleasing to the carnal mind. The stumbling block is, as it has always been, things that are pleasing to the carnal mind. It is not "the whole LGBT issue". That's merely the current trendy excuse. Also a lie people like to tell. Well...the harmful part is. The church IS intolerant* -- and well should be. The idea that such intolerance is harmful is nonsense. *Of course the way it is intolerant and what, exactly, it is intolerant against matters. It's been well explained by others...but it's a bit of a silly question if one steps back and looks at it more broadly. It's essentially asking how love and compassion are reconciled with sin and/or sinful drives. The answer isn't complicated. Sin is an intolerable thing BECAUSE of love and compassion.

    Yes. But that's my point. There's a reason that they put the movie (which coincidentally happens to be a huge leftist message, a new character, their first female lead, etc.) between the two huge movies that are the culmination of a decade of successes, and that it comes out less than a month-and-a-half prior to the release of Endgame, and that it has been set up to be integral to the overall story. This isn't 'luck' by any stretch of the imagination.

    If only getting rich was my primary interest. Keep in mind here...my primary point was that anyone who has a problem with SJW politics (as expressed in this case by a vote on RT, but it could be expressed anywhere...this is just the latest example) is labeled a "troll".

    Try 'calculated' or 'planned' or 'conniving' or 'manipulative' or...

    I'm pretty sure "lucky" is very much not the right word here.
  13. The Folk Prophet

    Captain Marvel and the press

    It's the press that's the real problem. The move here is clearly motivated by 2 things. The first, as mentioned, is SJW politics and Hollywood trying to shove them down the populace's throats. But the second is the almighty dollar. When push comes to shove, this is really about money. Manipulating reviews for money is not just a site prerogative. It is fraud.

    Agreed. And, fwiw, I had read a great many of the written responses as to why people were clicking they didn't want to see Captain Marvel, and they were clearly not bot generated, but people who, like me, are highly concerned with Disney's SJW agenda ruining their beloved franchises. They were censored for not goose-stepping along with the leftist narrative. Plain and simple. And whereas RT, being privately owned, can censor anyone they want, the news media at large is supposed to be balanced, neutral, and reporting reality, not constantly shilling for the left. Brie Larson is so concerned with the color of reviewer's skin, but she and her kind seems decidedly unconcerned with actual truth.

    I don't believe the second is what happened. If it did, sure...problem. But of course the exact same problem occurs in reverse. For example, Star Wars: Resistance -- 75% Audience Score. But with page after page after page of varied 1 and 2, and a rare 3 star reviews by legit responses. Then around page 7 of the reviews you get this: Yeah. That looks legit. (And the fact that it has a 92% critics rating?!? Nothing fishy here people. Move along.) This seems pretty cut and dry to me. You have clear examples of positive review data being falsified and no one does anything about it...no news articles...no uproar...no problem. But then people express disinterest in something (whatever the reason may be as to the why) that doesn't align with Hollywood's leftist narrative and, of course...TROLLS!
