The Lounge is rated Safe For Work. If you're about to post something inappropriate for a shared office environment, then don't post it. No ads, no abuse, and no programming questions. Trolling, (political, climate, religious or whatever) will result in your account being removed.
The thing is, IRL and F2F you can say "That movie sucked - you've no taste" in many ways, and your body language and tone of voice makes it clear. It could be aggressive or humorous. But when you write that in a forum comment, no-one has any idea how you meant it, and people generally assume the worst (paranoid little things that lots of people are.) Yes, that's what smileys were invented for, but when firing comments off people can often not bother with them, or simply forget that the other person can't see the big grin on their face...
On Monday morning at the office someone walks in and says "I just saw X and it was great"
Would anyone here say - That movie sucked "
Yes. I would
and "you've no taste"
depending on who told that, yes I would say it. On people I don't have that much to do with, then I would moderate that part of the sentence.
I find abit amusing your post regarding your signature
I'm pretty sure I would not like to live in a world in which I would never be offended.
I am absolutely certain I don't want to live in a world in which you would never be offended.
You are kind of "asking" for that
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
Ok, so I sent the revised list back to the judges and they came back with this list, sorted alphabetically, of the best sci-fi films ever made. If your fav movie is not on here, it's probably because it isn't really that good.

Keep your friends close. Keep Kill your enemies closer. The End
Dawn of the Dead isn't even sci fi? Clockwork Orange, and many more
you list Metropolis (barely sci fi) but not Brazil (even though also barely sci fi is way better)?
spaceballs? really? How old are your judges? 3? 4?
1. way too many good movies missing obviously because you've never seen them.
2. way too much crap because you've no taste (and just added some you've heard of as being famous but also not ever watched)
NOT [all] "sci fi," and WAY NOT the best.
