Hello! I am new to message boards such as this, but thought that I would give it a try. I had my trepidations as reading the rules it says not to post anything offensive, when /anything/ can be deemed "offensive" to another, yet in reading many threads, I don't see anything I might say that would be any more "offensive" than that already bantered about! So, I will give it a try. I'm a reasonable guy. I'm at a disadvantage as I tend towards the very conservative and follow politics, but am fair-minded. That is already three strikes. Months back I joined a pipe smoking forum where politics were verboten though often discussed and ignored anyway. I mentioned in passing that I wish they would keep politics out of movies (shoving their ideology on others under the guise of it being part of the story) and they banned me! Mentioning that you don't want politics in your films was deemed "political." The moderator suggested there are better places for such "controversial topics" and I finally thought, why the hell not? Asses. So I looked around and found a few expressly conservative sites that seemed boring what with everyone expressing the same topics and views, but I liked this one better even though it does not appear to be expressly conservative. So here I am, I will try not to offend anyone with a conservative POV, in exchange I agree to fairly consider and debate your (more liberal?) view. From the looks of it, there is room for most any topic and discussion so long as it is kept civil. Thanks for having me aboard. BTW, what is a toobfreak? I am an audio guru. I design and build high end music systems. But you can just call me toob.
