Forum rules
You are free to offer your opinions on a show, episode, book, film, film series, cinematic universe, etc., as long as it applies to that item, and not to the stated or assumed political views of the producers, writers, actors, key grip, best boy, intern, etc., of said item. In short, you want to talk about a show or movie, talk about the show or movie.

Others are free to disagree with your opinion. (You are not entitled to express your opinion in a vacuum.) BUT that opposing opinion must follow the same requirements above that the original opinion had to follow, as well as not bringing in the assumed political views of the original poster. (I leave out "stated" as they should not state any political position here on STPMA.)

ALSO, do not toss about derogatory labels at someone who offers an opinion in opposition to yours. No name calling, political labels (SJW, etc.,) questioning their humanity, morality, ethics, true fan status, or your assumption they are in the business to protect a certain fandom (gatekeeping, etc.). Again, discuss the show or movie not the politics or motives of another poster.

If you dislike something, it's perfectly fine to say so. However, posting your dislike every time someone else says anything positive about a show or movie, essentially stating the same thing over and over again is not acceptable. If you have something new to add, or are replying to a specific point in someone else's comment, okay. But if it's just to state once again, "IT SUCKS!" Don't.

Sorry to dredge up an old thread, but I believe I have come up with a solution: The container ship.

In the CITADEL continuity Jack and I are writing, we've established that the Glomar Explorer from TOTMM Episode 15: "Operation: Jennifer II" (I really should finish that someday...) is rebuilt into a container ship.

So consider this: Like today's container ships, anyone can buy/rent a shipping container and pay for it to be placed on board and taken to a specific port of call. Even "official" shippers, such as the USPS, use this type of transit.

Thoughts?

I'd be curious to read it.

I'll post it sometime this weekend (what I've done with it).

It's the story where Corwin loses her head (quite literally) to save her from being assimilated.
