why was my (the) fringe thread deleted?

How can cultural elitists like ourselves put TV in the Culture category? Well, where the hell else is it going to fit?

why was my (the) fringe thread deleted?

I'd guess it's becase you and TAsunder immediately set upon each other in a very unpleasant way.

I'm not making a judgment on who started it, but you both participated in it.

first of all, i started that thread a week ago. and it was minding it's own business til the aforementioned tasunder arrived on it and crapped all over me, completely unprovoked. and my response to him was perfectly genteel, as was shipley's.

you SHOULD be making a judgement, because there is one to be made.

let me get this straight... if i want to get a thread to disappear, all i have to do is wander over to it and start shit? is that how it works around here?

meanwhile, i am saying far worse stuff to the aforementioned sunder over on the straight to the heart of stupid thread, and i don't see that one disappearing...

wtf gives?

Maybe you didn't use enough swear words in that other thread like I did in the Fringe one.

I'm not one of the multifarious heads of the beast known as admin, so it's not my job to judge or assign responsibility. I felt I needed to add the second line so you wouldn't jump all over me for commenting.

I think the test is whether the contentiousness completely derails the thread or not. With the Fringe topic, it did. With Marvell's topic, it has not.

I dunno, I felt like I was on the road to reform with my last post, wherein I actually offered an opinion on Fringe finally. What happened after that?

maybe i missed something while i was at lunch, but the last two posts i saw on my thread were shipley and sunderclap discussing the nature of tv pilots.

i don't see how that was derailing anything.

The show's probably cancelled by now anyway.

TBP should create a Fringe thread to see what happens. This time I'll be sure to mention how creepy Lance Reddick's bloodshot right eyeball is.

Yeah, you're right, although it wasn't a very friendly banter. But then, it's really not my call to make, so I'm just speculating on the reasoning. I'll bite my tongue on't.

Just piggyback discussions onto Fringe Food columns.

My participation in this discussion is already tantamount to me sticking my head in a room and asking, "did someone say 'Fringe'?" I probably don't need to expose myself any further.
