In Response to Stacy B.
Now this is certainly the best one I've read in a long time. It's quite new to hear that a forum like this one is dedicated to the writer of LOTR! And even if this is true, I don't see the point of your rant about "grammar and composition". For one thing you seem to forget that fan pages like this one is frequented by a lot of people with a native language other than English (like myself). So every person living on the face of this planet should be able to write (and speak) English without any error, just to please you? Is that it? Please give me a break.
I am fully aware of the fact that I'm not capable of
speaking/writing in English without any errors (in fact I am sure I make a lot of them),
as are most other "foreign" people I'm sure. But that does not give you the
right to try and exclude us from the forums. In fact I'm proud of being able to express
myself more than adequate in five different languages, albeit not error-less.
Besides, IMNERHO(*), this forum is not about language (not to
mention your hurt feelings of aesthetics). This forum is about a movie being made. A movie
about some books we all came to love dearly. And from this point of view the only thing
off-topic here is your complaining! Next time you submit a post to these forums make sure
it's about the movies, please? You are not only "simply hampering discussion",
but more important you are "distorting it".
