...building a RAT SHIP....
March 01, 2008 01:35AM
In keeping with the spirit of ***Anarchy*** I wish to express something about the banning of John Vanlandingham from Special Stage.

I don't agree with some of John's writings, or his manner, but I am outraged that he was banned from Special Stage's forums.

It brings to mind a quote from one of my favorite movies, "The Scent of a Woman", where Al Pacino goes ballistic over a bunch of bullshit at a prep school.

He says, "You're building a rat ship here. A vessel for sea going snitches..." "....I say you are killing the very spirit this institution proclaims it instills. What a sham!"

He goes on to say, "If I were the man I was five years ago I'd take a flame-thrower to this place!!"

Take these quotes and interpret my meaning in whatever manner blows your skirt up.

Here is the entire script from the scene I am referring to.
In my opinion much of it applies to what happened:

Jens, I am right there with you. Sometimes John pisses me off to no end and I frequently diagree with his opinions and communication style. Strangely we get along fine in person and on the phone. That being said SS is not what it used to be. If you don't believe scroll down the Car Construction forum.
