My opinion is very important, and deserves its own thread

Well, I say 'opinion', but really I'm the only one fearless enough to say what we're all thinking. Absolutely every one of us.

I mean, if I just contributed to the main thread on the topic, people might skim past my post, and that would be a tragedy.

They'd miss my well-informed totally objective assessment about how the show failed to match up perfectly with my idea of what it should be.

To conclude: blah blah blah doomed blah blah blah 1989 blah blah blah showrunner must go blah blah blah emotions blah blah blah

I would reply in agreement with you, but I feel I should start my own thread stating these facts in a totally neutral and unbiased way.

You'd be the first one EVER to to that in here.

In my unquestionable opinion, of course.

Brilliant thread, just as I was thinking the forum was having a sense of humour failure. Nice one, thank you!

Lazlo,

You are, of course, entitled to your opinion as a Thread Creator - but sorry, you've got it all wrong.

Before this Thread gets cancelled because of low ratings, this is how you should have written it... etc.

8.9 million overnight ratings. One of the top viewed program's on bbc I player. Obviously the show is doomed.

I'd like to jump in and ignore the opening post (cos nobody ever reads em),
and state AS FACT that I haven't watched it yet but I'm SURE it'll be crap cos somebody on here said so.

Doesn't anyone here understand that the only way to convince people of your opinion is to shout REALLY LOUD and insult those who disagree?

Well, that is clearly the statement of a child. As an adult (I have to state that, as it's not clear from my posting...), who knows what he's talking about, you are very clearly wrong. And I will demonstrate this by using my opinions masquerading as fact, then call you stupid for disagreeing.

Notice that I am not even bothering to relate it to the topic of the thread? This is because what I have to say is that important... I will be repeating this on pretty much every thread, except for the one in which out would actually be appropriate...

My feelings are so similar to yours that I'm going to start my own thread with a title that uses the same words as yours but with the words mixed up a little bit so as to fool everyone into thinking my ideas are fresh. Also I will find a better way to insist to everyone that my views matter the most

PS I love it !!!

I'm now going to come back in, ignore any reasonable queries and decide that one differing opinion is in fact a personal attack on me.

I will then inform everybody on the same Doctor Who forum as I am to 'get a life' and/or 'grow up', before flouncing off the thread forever, except for when I refresh it every minute to see if anybody replies.

I, a random 3rd party, will now come on and decry how nobody can have a normal conversation and it will now devolve into everyone agreeing with me, even the ones arguing, trying to incriminate the people who are actually sensible.

You forgot to mention your intellectual superiority and how anyone who disagrees with you is probably an escaped mental patient with an IQ similar to that of a mosquito.

I thought the only way to convince people of your opinion on here was to state it as if it's fact and hope no-one notices? And then when those who do know the difference between opinion and fact inevitably notice, you need to go all defensive and turn the thread into one which is yet another rant against Moffat/RTD (delete as appropriate according to who you do/don't like, seeing as it also seems to be impossible on here to like them both!)

Sorry but your posts just aren't what they used to be. And they're not a patch on the previous poster's comments.

I can't wait for the next poster to come along to really get posting back on track as, really, it's simply lost its way.

Please do better or I wont read any more of your posts.

Edit: But I'll still come on here to tell everyone how unhappy I am about it all...

I will now deride your statement by repeating key points back to you in quotes with the prefix so called.
You're so called "opinion" as a self proclaimed so called "fearless one" is nonsense.

You are alone with your so called "objective assessment" and your so called "conclusion".
Thank you for your contribution to another fine forum discussion.
