Reading this thread makes me remember why I rarely come here anymore and why the Screened community is so awesome.
Anyway, as long as BB respect the hard work Rorie put into that site and keeps making it as awesome if not more than he made it and the communitty stays then Screened will remain the coolest place for online movie conversation. I'm sure Rorie will do well in the future, he is a talented writer and a really fun personality.
I recently got an offer to work in a documentary about the Mexican war on drugs for Venezuelan tv. Even though it was good money I downright refused, it would've required me to spend two months in Mexico and be in some really shitty places. I got to read some of the info that had been collected and it is ridiculous, the whole South of Mexico is completely controlled by the cartels, and worst of all, they are spreading to Guatemala and the rest of central america. And these aren't just any cartels, these are some of the most violents groups in the world right now.
I always only cared about the community, and over the last year or so it has become more and more like the Gamespot community, except you can curse. So even if they merge, for me it wouldn't be a big change.
