Okay, I'm not trying to start anything here, seriously, but if this thread ends up doing otherwise, I'll take responsibility for my actions. Anyway, this seems to have been an issue here for at least a couple of years or so, but it seems like there's no room for a difference of opinion here on MC. I'm not just speaking for myself, I'm also vouching for a few others... for example, before The Muppets came to fruition, I did cast my doubts about it actually happening, and I based my opinion of Disney's handling of the Muppet franchise, because they have admittedly not utilized the Muppets to the best of their advantage, and they have shelved a number of projects, so I took a "I'll believe it when I see it" attitude towards the movie, and was happy to be proven wrong, I really was. Now, we have speculation of follow-up movie/possibly a sequel so soon after the previous movie... while I still remain a small amount of skepticism, I'm more open-minded about this possibly happening since Disney proved themselves to us last time; however, I notice this time a few others are casting their doubts about this happening because it does seem so soon after the movie we just got, as well as Jason Segel's supposed lack of involvement, and confusion as to whether this is a sequel in the sense that does it continue the plot from the first one, or will it have an entirely different plot, or what? Now here's what the problem is, and I mentioned this in another thread: it's like no other opinions are welcome or wanted on here at MC. If ANYONE here, whether it's myself, or others, cast doubts about something happening, or takes that seeing is believing POV, the rest of the community gets up in arms and whines and complains about these people being "negative", "pessimistic", and basically act like their menaces to the forum. Everytime. Everybody just HAS to be cock-eyed (NOT the way I want to phrase it, but it's the only phrase coming to my mind) and sugary happy-pappy about every news regarding Muppet projects that comes up, otherwise, everyone is like "GARRGHH!! QUIT BRINGING EVERYBODY DOWN WITH YOUR DOOM-AND-GLOOM! YOU'RE RUINING THIS ENTIRE COMMUNITY WITH YOUR NEGATIVE PESSIMISM!" And like I said, it's happening again, this time it's not just me, others are expressing their disbelief and skepticism regarding a sequel to The Muppets, and now we have a thread like this... http://www.muppetcentral.com/forum/...-fan-thread-no-pessimism-allowed.50394/unread Again, it's like a difference of opinion around here is not welcome here... I mean, I held my tongue (rather my fingers) when heralde was being rather pessimistic when Obama supporters celebrated his presidency, but then again, that doesn't really apply to the world of Muppets. I just want to know if we could at least make some allowances for a difference of opinions on this forum? I know we should keep a community of peace and harmony in the community, like the kind of community Jim would want, but I mean really, is everybody getting their underwear in a knot over a small number of people having skepticism really necessary?
