I think as of late the whole BD forum is an overreaction to EVERY title and there are a large number of us who feel the same. It has become the "new drug". Heading off any comments, we that feel this way LOVE films and DO NOT settle for mediocrity or less than as some would try to lead everyone to believe. Condescending posts that alude to that belief do an injustice to those who feel like I and so many others do.
I certainly do not speak for the mods, but I will say with assurance that the mods feel the same and some comments in recent BD software threads by mods reflect that stance. When I got booted out of a thread, a first in four years of heavy posting at AVS, I mentioned to a mod in a PM how it must get old hearing the same bickering over and over about PQ issues. He got a chuckle out of it, because he and the other mods know. Its beyond old for a majority of us.
Many of us who do want the best possible PQ, but we feel like we are back to where the forum was last year with that other major forum dividing issue. It becomes an your either with us or against us situation, all or nothing, and it pisses me off, because I know it doesn't have to be that way.
Most important for many of us is that we know the PQ issues are there, but we aren't or try not to be extremists. We do want the closest possible presentation to film and the theatre as we can get and because some of us take the stance we do, it does not mean we don't want the best PQ.
We would probably get more done and more results from studios to make changes if we were close to being in agreement as opposed to thinking if one person or group doesn't agree entirely with the other, he or they are against us and our intent for better PQ.
IMO perception and approach on how to deal with these issues needs to change and we will get make more progress in the long term for the better of this forum and especially BD.
