The thing you have to remember about SMG is that he's either a troll, and it's very sad he's still getting people to go along with his dumb poo poo, or he's a man who literally never grew past the mindset that first year film students have where they learn an ounce of theory and think they know everything. Which is also sad. None of his arguments are ever in good faith or are so dumb that they may as well not be. I'm not sure why we're giving this one the time of day at this point.

I think the thing you have to remember about SMG is literally nothing because he's a stranger on the internet and it's perverse that he holds such sway over people on a different forum's brains that they can never shut the gently caress up about him even when he's not around and I'm not sure he's even posted in years.

Now, that guy who kept up a year long ruse that he was in favour of a return to the gold standard and then casually revealed one day that it was a joke that got out of hand, that guy was a poster.

SMG tried his poo poo in BSS and got a probation with a "never post in this forum again" warning which was funny.

He's literally posting in CD in some dudes thread where he was asking for advice on what order to do the marvel movies with his girlfriend. His posts are telling the guy to watch Battleship and Skyline instead. He's still active and doing the same annoying shtick. He's not allowed in this sub forum, so let's just not bring up his insane, dumb rear end theories like they or him deserves this much discussion. That's my final word on it.

I think he's cool and I like how mad he makes people. Plus his breakdowns of shot composition made me appreciate a lot of films I'd dismissed as trash in a new light. That's my final word on it.

What? I have no strong opinion about SMG but he's definitely not banned from BSS to my knowledge and I can't speak for X-O but I don't have any interest in enforcing such a ban if it does exist. Also this thread isn't for posting about posters so everyone drop it, and you can move on from theory-crafting about surprise sex while you're all at it too.

is there some regulation that the posters must be X feet off the ground, or a particular latitude of the poster must be at eye level? i dont know why u didnt just move them down 3 inches from the ceiling lol. to be frank “my ceilings were low” has always sounded like an excuse, i think u were just afraid to admit u thought it looked good

It was half the low ceilings and half me being a lazy dumb rear end 20 something and not owning a level or wanting to get one or having anyone there at the time to eyeball if they were level or not. The ceiling issue has been solved but me being lazy and dumb is forever.

...Actually, that might work I guess.

I would watch one of those Marvel One-Shots where Old Man Steve tells Peggy he’s going out for milk and eggs, then sneaks through the Chitauri invasion to return the time stone. And comes back with milk and eggs, naturally.

In general I think posters like that keep things interesting buuuuuuuuut need a stern-rear end slapping when things get too out of hand.

I came to this thread (and past incarnations of it) to get away from SMG because he was banned from here and his awful posts really ended up making GBS threads up CineD so much I no longer visit that subforum. If he's still around, I would strongly advise you to keep that door sealed please.

I apologize for bringing it up. My intention wasn't to open some raw wound. I didn't realize it was as big a thing as it apparently was. It was just some weird rear end thing I came across reading some old threads and just felt the compulsion to say "Wow, what the hell?" I actually thought the post might go unnoticed. My bad.

If I broke some rule I wasn't aware of I'll accept the punishment as penance for inadvertently starting this and causing so much pain.

Like it's way super great that folks find the gimmick so interesting and wacky or whatever, right up to the part where he instigates twenty pages of the aforementioned surprise sex jokes and calls Parkland shooting victims crisis actors and other such interesting wacky plays to troll for reactions that, yes, I will indeed hella bring up whenever relevant because no one would ever let any other poster including myself hear the end of it if they did stuff like that and rightfully so, kthxbyeee

Ok, so believe it or not (and this isn't a sarcastic "believe it or not"-- I was actually surprised when I found out) there's no master list of forum-banned posters that gets handed down to new mods. I checked around though and it seems like SMG was specifically thread-banned from the BSS movie thread, which I'm fine upholding, and I'm waiting to hear back from X-O as to whether that extended to a subforum-wide ban.

I personally don't really like forum-bans very much except in really really dire circumstances because I feel like it shuts the door on people just figuring out how to be more engaging or thoughtful or funny whatever (there are a bunch of BSS posters who I really appreciate now who I found totally insufferable five years ago) but I think in this case the thread-ban seems fine so I won't mess with it. He doesn't seem to have had any interest in posting in BSS at all in about half a decade though so who knows, we can cross that bridge if and when it ever gets built. If X-O has a different opinion I'll defer to that since it sounds like it was his call initially.
