I stopped posting there a long time ago, in part because of my admiration for Mr. Bay. Every time there's a TF2 post, a bunch of idiots from the talkbacker squad have to totally trash out MB and the first movie, and I just got completely sick of it. One guy really, really upset me.
They were doing a giveaway of Steve Jablonsky's awesome CD score, and I wanted to check it out, but when I read the talkback, one guy posted "You know, I can see [Michael Bay] listening to the 'Autobots' track, driving down the road in a convertible with the top down letting some 'actress' polish his knob" Well not only does this insult one of my favorite directors, it also makes fun of a powerful track in the movie score, honestly one of the most inspiring pieces in it.
I wanted so bad to let into this idiot and tell him if he's going to think thoughts like that, he needed to keep them to himself. There were a lot of people slagging the movie but that comment just sent me over the edge. Eventually I just quit trying to defend Michael Bay because those fools are just beyond being reached.
What a bunch of pretentious jerks, you know?
