Dear Disney Enthusiasts,
First of all, I'd like to thank those of you who posted new "Tangled" park and merchandise photos. It's cool to be able to see new "Tangled" images.
Secondly, I'd like to say that I personally believe that old Uncle Walt would really be disheartened by your unwillingness to accept any deviations from the Almighty Message Posting Norm (Ie: Different salutations, etc.) I think that all of us know by now that Walt didn't become famous, or successful, by accepting the status quo, resting upon his laurels, or trying ALL of the same methods...time and time...and time again...
I am a sturdy enough individual to admit that people from OTHER sites have given me a bad time about my writing style. If there's some sort of verbal Stalinist/ Maoist (Read: "Conformist", 'cause Stalin and Mao actually send me...OOPS, I did it again!) "uniform" that we're all supposed to wear, please let me know, and I'll wear said uniform like a Mickey Mouse- emblazened nun's habit (Wait. I'll not be forgetting the mouse ears).
Thirdly, I'd like to discuss the subject of...SEX!
Well, actually, since many of the people who post here seem to like to pretend that they're Victorians, I'd like to ask exactly WHICH rating this site's conversations ought to conform to. As soon as I am informed about the rating of this site, though, the tables may turn, should I find "inappropriate" wording, etc.
After all, "rules are rules," ya' know!
I think that the most ironic aspect of this entire SNAFU is the fact that many, if not ALL of The Disney Company's movies are dripping with innuendo (Sometimes the innuendo is actually fairly inappropriate for children, even though it's enjoyable for adults)...and with plots which are sex-centric...yes...think about "Cinderella" and "Sleeping Beauty"...
Oh, well, Viva la Revolution! I am NEVER tame, but I can BEHAVE as though I am tame, so just say the word...
Thank you in advance for your replies.
This is the wrong thread to make a statement about how you should behave and make any accusations towards the site. I recall only a few saying that they were putt off by how you write, so it's unfair to label everyone despite not having any issues with how you write.
Second, this is an off-topic post. If you really wanted to explain why you write in that manner we have an off-topic forum where you can discuss anything you want. This thread is about Tangled, and up until that point that was the discussion. Sure, every thread gets derailed at least one, but usually it stays focused on the topic. This, however, is not related to Tangled and in the future, look up the off-topic forums to bring said discussion.
Third, if you really want to know why people are putt off by your writing style, let me elaborate. You see, your writing style is a lot like a letter being written, complete with the formal addresses and talking in a semi-objective manner, almost as if you were professional addressing someone without expressing a lot of emotion. That's fine and good for a professional letter, but considering this is a formal discussion thread it does come off as being weird for some.
To elaborate further, it's been known that spammers and bots often appear in a very courteous manner in order to gain the trust of the members. It often looks to be very robotic and hence why people get suspicious. Again, not saying that you ARE a spammer or a robot, but that your writing style that upset those that don't know you.
Finally, stop the accusations. It's making yourself look very arrogant. There are people here that have been members for YEARS, including the creators of this site and forum. They know how to run it and they know what's right and wrong and will often address it right away. So coming in here in an OFF TOPIC thread and start making claims about how you feel the site is too strict blah blah blah is creating a very bad impression, and considering some people are already bothered by you this is just making things worse.
We may be crazy, opinionated, snarky and silly, but we can be great people if we are treated right. If you want to fit in with this community be respectful, follows the rules and don't pick fights, even if someone else started it and it bothers you. For that sort of thing we have the moderators who will address any issue. They want the best for all of us so if you calm down things will work out for it.
For everyone else, my apologies, but I thought this needed to be addressed.
