I think I can see why comments were disabled on the website now. Since Rick DeLano is the author of the USA Today article, the article is something that Rick hopes will stand on its own, and so the websites that display it should not be cluttered with all the rabble of dissenters that would inevitably arise.
In another thread his new announcement is posted in which he provides the date (May 28th) when the release date (we don't know it yet) will be announced.
He gives a most revealing statement there:
Also, we will address just who might have…you know…sort of "pushed the button" on this comical media narrative, which spread throughout the internet in twenty four short hours.
Who was behind this amazing example of media buffoonery?
(HINT: It Ain't The Jews!)
The Producers were surprised by the sudden eruption of Internet comments attacking The Principle that seemed to come out of thin air. But apparently Rick has sniffed out what the source was, or else he has friends who could help him do so.
Considering all this, it seems to me that Rick composed this article for publication with the deliberate purpose in mind to make it palatable for the general public, so that they would actually READ it and not turn the page after the first two paragraphs. He really stuck his neck out in the first paragraph, but that was only to SHOCK the readers into thinking, "What the..." and hopefully that would draw them into the second paragraph, where he took a different tack: one that the readers might have expected from the very start.
And so it proceeds to the end, going from one extreme to the other, and it therefore left me with an abiding urge to comment line by line. So his scheme worked on me! I can only imagine it also worked on those who are of the opposite mind to mine, that is, those who buy into the Copernican principle, Galileo's lies, the fairy tales of big bang bad hypothesis and 'evolution
' to boot.
And by having comments disabled, all of these reactions are therefore going to take place on DIFFERENT websites, where readers will not be influenced by the writings of other readers with whose views they disagree.
So disabling comments is all a part of Rick's "fancy footwork" to promote a fair assessment of his film, leaving the feeding-frenzy of knee-jerk reactions in their own little bubble out there, where they can repeatedly stick their foot in their mouth for all to see. And we well will see it all
, all in due time. Some of it we'll see on May 28th.
