Discussion Post

I was disappointed to see some people (some long term users of this site), defacing our website via the chat box.

I have removed the chat box until further notice, but you can use the comments on this post to get things off your chest. All of these comments will be moderated.

For all those who were wondering what has happened to me, I have just posted an update on the OD4U Google Forum. Those that are subscibed to the forum will recieve this update as an email today.

Scott, I'm not sure whats up but I was upset at some of the judgemental and assuming comments made, almost seemed because you were absent for a spell, it was ok to act out in the manner ppl did, even after you mentioned a few months back your health isn't or wasn't that great. I hope things work out for you and your family, what ever the problem is. You tuned many of us on to excellent docs and informed many more how entertaining and informative docs can actually be. You certainly 'payed it forward' and I sure hope it comes full circle for you. Take care and I thank you for all your efforts in this site. S.Simmons.

Scott,

I just read in the new yorker's review of michael moore's new documentary about capitalism that there's better documentary already out there called, "American Casino." Any way that you could post that on your site? Thanks for your consideration.

I , and a lot of others , love your blog/site and hope the you can stay with your initial drive and select some of the best documentaries for your readers here. Stay in the world; reclusing is such a hard way to go ...

thank you for all the time and effort you've put into these wonderful blog. =] I wish you well, and hope that you return to posting documentaries in the future. Thank you again.

What can I say that hasn't already been said, many of the comments I have read summarise much of I what I wanted to say. But I would like to add a big thank for all your efforts in hosting many outstanding documentaries in a way that offered freedom of access to invaluable information. Much of the material has had a lasting inspiration enough to encourage many people to further education in many important subjects. These important educational resources have been the context of many a breakfast time discussion between me and my son. Your site has been the perfect alternative for many who are still hungry to know things. And for those who couldn’t afford to go to university, who are trapped in long working hours, who are tired but still remain curious, it’s been the perfect antidote in a media world designed to manufacture consent. You have offered choice a rarity in this modern media age and you have been fair in the offering. If I was to offer the analogy of a courtroom drama set up to understand the meaning of life your role would be that of the defendant offering all the evidence enough to keep any jury out from announcing final judgment. Thank you for sharing the bench. So from both of us we thank you again for all your efforts and our thoughts are with you.
