Lita is yet to see the reported fabness that is Heath in makeup, clowning around, trying to hurt the guy in the black tights. So, this post is brought to you by the letters ‘Don’t Look’ and the number ‘Spoiler’.
I copy and pasted the link with my eyes shut – I’m so blimmin’ dedicated, oh yes. So, if pedantism and his delicious friend, detail, are your thang, click here to view the mistakes spotted so far in The Dark Knight.
Still on the batty one, Uncy Googy led me to this interesting column, Business Lessons from Batman and The Dark Knight by Seattle blogger Alyssa Royse. Be warned, if you follow that link, you will find death threats and other vile comments left for Alyssa. All because she didn’t much like The Dark Knight.
Royse has now written a follow up post about her first death threat and the barrage of ignorant and misogynistic comments left on her original post.
Holy vicious insanity Batman. Since no one really should have to read through all of them, I’ve selected a small handful of comments that others have asked me to take down:
* Get a life you two dollar whore blogger, The Dark Knight doesn’t suck, you suck! Don’t ever post another blog or unless you want to get ganged up.
* Who let this woman out of the kitchen?
* you are clearly retarded, i hope someone shoots then rapes you
* alyssa darling, why don’t you make yourself useful and go have a baby
* I think a certain “author” needs to go back to playing house before she breaks mommy’s computer.
* I’m sure you’d have no trouble finding a top flight job in either the housekeeping or food service industries. And please, change your pad. Thanks! 🙂
* if you were my wife i would beat you
* This is why women are TOO STUPID to think critically and intelligently about film; AND business for that matter.
Alyssa chose to leave the comments up, but the blog editors later removed them as they clearly violated blog comment policy.
I am leaving them up so that we can all see them, and squirm in discomfort and ask ourselves who we are as a society that these comments even exist.
Who are we that we think a disagreement about a film should result in violent attacks and death?
Who are we that we hide behind anonymous blog comments threatening and harassing each other to feel powerful?
Who are we that we have raised people so weak and violent that they resort to this kind of thing?
Who are we that we cannot embrace dialog and disagreement as an opportunity to learn and grow?
Who are we that we want to silence anyone who disagrees with us?
