"PS: ... I wish every email was like this--most read like English is the person's third language."

You mean - like most of the posts here on any given day?

CrakrJak: "Why not? The Japanese do it quite well with anime."

Actually, the Japanese don't do the dubbing at all into English. The companies that license the anime do the dubbing, and often it's quite awful.

One of my favorite anime had the lead actress' voice go from a sweet Japanese voice to a squeaky scratchy voice in the English dub. It's horrific. This is why I prefer subtitles, nuances are often lost or destroyed in dubs.

I watch TONS of anime (see below), and with a little practice you get to the point where you barely even notice that you're reading subtitles.



As for the video this thread is related to... meh. It's just a movie clip.

I'm female and I thought it was hilarious. She obviously had something coming what with the nervous glances and the frequent hush-ups from the others around the table. If she were a man in that situation none of the people who are "offended" by it would have said boo. Double standards much? Listen, women fought for equality, so lets all be treated equally. That includes getting punched in the face when you're berating a mentally unstable man.

LillianDulci: Do you have to disagree with me on everything ? Seriously.

what do you suggest? Dubbing?


Why not? The Japanese do it quite well with anime.
That's better than having to rewind the video, and the subs distracting your attention from the actors performance.

I laughed at the clip, but not in a "take that bitch" kinda way. I def would've laughed as much if it was a pesky dude getting it in the schnoz. You should take exception with the comments, not the clip.

The humour is in the shock value and the breaking of taboos, plus that we can all relate to the feeling of getting so frustrated with some fiddly task as well as the feeling when you want to shut some smug idiot up. I don't see much wrong with this.

And I echo davy's sentiments on comments. I very rarely delete comments, and I would guess >99% of the ones I've deleted are spam. I don't think we should censor much here.

Nothing wrong with posting that video.

There would be no objection from anyone if that was a guy getting punched in the face for being a douch bag.

Just another woman that wants both equality AND chivalry.

"I do btw have English as my 3rd language, so I appologise for any badly worded sentences or grammar etc."

That made me LOL. Just because Fancy just tried to use that as an aside insult, and this guy wrote a great reply, better than many English as a first people.

As for the post, I'm with Gerry1of1.

Damn word count.
now where was I.
I would personally never get offended by anything here on this site, cause I know it's for entertainment purpose for those who are bored, if you are searching entertainment on a site where everyone is allowed to submit stuff, you can't afford to be squemish.
We are all retards on some level or the other, but what has the world come to when you have to show violence like this to get a reaction of any kind?

I do btw have English as my 3rd language, so I appologise for any badly worded sentences or grammar etc.

Hey, I didn't even know it had been approved, I've been quite out of touch with the net for some weeks now. I don't remember if I wrote that exact headline as it is quite some time since I submitted it here. I can see how some would get offended by the clip in question, but this being the webz...and filled with so much crap, it gets hard to dig up stuff that gets a reaction from people that is more than "meh, I'm still bored".
This clip even out of context got someone out of the chair to write an mail to the mods, which I consider a great success somehow.
As for the girl in the film... she had it coming, as well as Torkil having a deep resentment of women in the film the outcome isn't really in question.
I would never hurt a girl, but if you see the film then you'll agree with me.
But having managed to offend someone on the internet to the point of writing the mods, I consider that a win. I personally would never get offended by anything here on the site, a

Meh... Probably that person got punched in the face the night before

If you don't like it, don't watch, if you already did, get over it and make some sandwiches

As if that were the worst thing you could see on the internet...

Good enough for the big screen good enough to be out of context on IAB. If your that offended go back to cable television.

As for personal Mod policies, I spend most of my time patrolling the boards for spam/trolls etc and don't approve much content. Call it laziness if you will, but I leave these things to the likes of Fancylad, Madest and Kitty who do a much better job than I do of finding great content and posting it here. Also, when I do approve a post, I rarely change the submitted title and/or description, unless it's gramatically retarded.

And as for commenters, we have no control over that, nor should we. As long as someone's not spamming, posting porn, consistently and desperately trolling, or posting hate-speech, then we don't control that. We ain't da po-lice, nor should we be.

As for content, IAB is an equal-opportunity insulter. We insult everybody.

Meh, like Fancy I just watched it for the first time. I was expecting some horrific bloody beating, but it was just a person getting punched in the nose by an apparently troubled other person. Sure, the person getting punched was a woman, but I fail to see the "crossing-the-line horror" in it... In fact, it relieved my boredom for a couple of seconds, as I certainly didn't see it coming. Which is kinda what we're trying to do here.

Someone referenced Tarantino earlier - true dat, Tarantino had a Jewish American GI (the Bear Jew) clubbing a German's head in with a baseball bat. But yeah, it was an excellent movie overall, if I were offended by the content I wouldn't have gone to see it. Just as I don't click on some IAB links if I know I'm going to find them disgusting.

Maybe the title was misleading "BEst Movie Scene Ever". I don't know if that was the original submitted title or not, though I suspect it was. We rarely change those.

i lol'd at the clip, some people need to grow the drat up and realize its a movie, an act. then comes the really big part about the comments, welcome to the internet author of the letter. hope you enjoy your time here.

p.s. if you want to see a really drated up movie go watch "The Feast" where a 9 year old kid watches his mother get rammed by an old drunk and later gets eaten, digested, and spewed up all over his mother by a monster. Also a woman gets orally raped by a monster while tied to a board and blown up. Its quite fascinating.

just a note in your comment...my lady friend pointed out that your bracket within bracket punctuation is incorrect. It should be ([]) not [()] as you put...ex: There are several different ways of beginning to write an essay (all of them equally helpful [Drew and Bingham, 2001]) and it depends on writers which they prefer. should I punch her in the face now and post it?
