Or an age restriction.

Because I'm sick of seeing 13 year olds posting "OMFG Texes Chainsaw Masaker re-mak is soo much beter then the old 1 LOL BRB"

Trying to discuss films most of these kids aren't even old enought to see, added with their bullshit "net-speak" and inability to use a "spell check", throw in the fact most haven't seen a horror film older than 3 or 4 years old really makes me want to punch my computer.

I'm just a year away from being 18 but I joined Fearnet when I was 16. I feel it is unfair to stereotype all 17 and unders as kids who just say "lol", "way" and "no way". I feel that I should be freely allowed to express my opinion like other horror fans regardless of age. Nobody's given me trouble about being a minor and a few members on here have actually said that I was one of the more mature minors they've met on here.

Let me know if I'm out of line here but I just feel like I should be able to state my opinion and I have watched scary movies from now back to the 1930s so I am not just a modern horror junkie. I feel I should just be allowed to say how I feel freely and without harassment.

I agree by reading half the posts on here you would think that Saw is the quintessential horror movie. There is definitively more to horror movies than gore. and in my honest opinion Saw doesn't even reach the pinnacle of the sadistic torture movie genre.

ummmm, im fourteen and i didnt know that there wasnt an age restriction and didnt not wanna be able to join cuz some sites if u put in ur underage then u cant join from that ip. anyway. not all teenagers cant spell and shit. i do respect you for meeting the cast of "The Devils Rejects", but no age restriction. and it doesnt matter how old u r u can still see it. just not in theaters and u cant go rent or buy it. all u have to do is find a copy and pop it in and watch. so dont be such a dumbass. and if u dont like these immature people on here then tell em to fuck off or sumthin. now except for a few word that i PURPOSELY misspelled, my spelling is great. suck on that!!!!

i don't have a problem with kids commenting on the discussions, if they saw the movie, i'm sure they know what they are talking about, i started watching horror movies when i was kid

That's a hard topic to address. I can see both sides. Everyone should be allowed to post their viewpoint, but there are limits. Telling someone to suck it just because you don't like how they worded something? Immaturity at 8 or 80. Nuff said. As long as net speak isn't so predominant that you need an interpreter? I can deal.  On the other hand, I did see a post that was started where the poster couldn't spell the name of the movie the topic was on. I am not in a hurry when I post something. No one should be. Maybe that would help spelling issues. On boards everywhere? Mass confusion on what is expected and what it even is. For consideration:

Review: State what you like/dislike about the subject. Try to avoid spoilers if possible. If it inspires someone to see/buy? You were successful.

Why I bothered: "This app is neat" <The average App Store "review". (That's not a review. It's an opinion. Doesn't tell anyone squat about why they'd like it too. )

Movie Suggestions Posts: The movie title, stated in a way that is searchable. If it is obscure, add dates, stars, etc. so people can find it. Tell why you liked it. Avoid spoilers if possible. Avoid links. Links go bad over time and these forums are a prime example of that. That's why it's good to name the link. If it disappears? People will at least know WHAT you tried to help them find. Trailers are great links. Until that link disappears.

This works for me. I've never had someone comment that they had no clue why I posted what I posted. I hope this helps someone. In today's texting frenzy? People are losing the ability to communicate effectively in more than 12 words. That's a FACT. No matter what age you are.
