You are without question a hugely important and insightful member of the Wellesnet Board. You recently wrote, on the SHE WAS REALLY GREAT, WASN'T SHE thread, one of the most eloquent posts that I have run across here, in the many years that I have been a fervent Wellesnet reader in general and fan of your posts in particular. You write wonderful things, and if you have your moments of pretension, incivility, and verbosity, well, so don't we all, including myself, and those who criticize you. But Store is right; why resurrect this thread, which is an ugly thing, especially when you really have nothing new to contribute. FADE TO BLACK still does not have an American distributor, which is where we were at when Jaime Marzol got kicked off the site and the whole thread sputtered to well-deserved oblivion. Let it rest. You know, I avoided posting at Wellesnet for the longest time, and have subsequently considered going away, because of the tendency of the threads to degenerate into the "histrionic pissing contests" that Store has so aptly named. It shouldn't be so. When things start to get ugly, how about we put a check on emotion and ego and shoot for the higher ground? Sometimes it is better not to post than to make one's point, and I suspect this post will, ironically, be a perfect example of that. I am sorry if I am offensive to you, or to anyone else on this site, but I think that Wellesnet has failed to fullfill its complete potential as the essential source for all things Wellesian because a certain pettiness has become dominant in the discourse. The pettiness and rancor that result from insecure egoism almost torpedoed Orson Welles' career; let's not perpetuate it. In the end, the only real way that we can honor Welles's legacy is to avoid the kind of behavior that nearly destroyed it.
