Kyle Kersten was a true friend of TCM. One of the first and most active participants of the Message Boards, “Kyle in Hollywood” (aka, hlywdkjk) demonstrated a depth of knowledge and largesse of spirit that made him one of the most popular and respected voices in these forums. This thread is a living memorial to his life and love of movies, which remain with us still.

I was Suspended for a day and a half and I have popped up again.
 
Guess that makes me a "floater", eh?

While I was checking out some other film sites, I discovered these (TCM) Message Boards do not have a good reputation in the outside world - with all the negativity and disputatious behavior hereabouts.
 
It was rather refreshing to "get away from it all" 

 

 

I don't know about any other film sites.  At least, on THIS site, you can kid some people.  Try THAT on most FACEBOOK pages, and you're OUTA there!

I started out with NOTHING...and still have most of it left!

I believe the future of TCM is clear. The somewhat altruistic message of not wanting, needing or caring about viewership and ratings is waning. Whomever gets control will be following the U.S. Dollar.

Interesting statistics..
 
Rotten Tomatoes Top 100 movies of all time :
 
51 are 1959 and earler
 
49 are 1960 and later
 
The older classics in the list are pretty much what you might expect. As for the rest.. well, you decide.
