    He's not a genius and he's not a moron, so I didn't have much choice.

        On the contrary, I'd say he's both.

          I want an "He's got a good cause but lacks good taste in bringing that point out" or some option like that.

          By good taste I don't mean that it's a bad thing to touch taboo stuff, but that "Bowling for Columbine" could've been even better without the "obligatory tear-eyed people" and other over-emotional stuff. That makes the document somewhat fall down to the level of the stuff he's fighting against. The facts do not necessarily need the drama to get the points said (unless it's specifically aimed towards people who can't concentrate hard enough to watch documentaries).

            Unfortunately, that seems to be the majority of human beings.

              Moore is being extremely clever at the moment.

              For example, the guy who runs moorewatch.com posted a link to a site which had a bootlegged version of Fahrenheit 9/11 for download. The idea behind this was to deprive Moore of revenue by allowing people to watch it without paying (following MPAA ideology, perversely) and to show Moore up as a hypocritical greedy capitalist because at Cannes he had said that he was ok with non-commercial copying and sharing of art, including his own, but now that this right-wing site was stealing his money, he'd get angry and reveal his true colours! You know, because he's Moore and lives in NY in a nice apartment, he's a hypocrite and just manipulating the public for his own good. As well as being a nasty liberal progandist in the service of bin Laden.

              A couple of days later:

              Michael Moore:
              “I don’t agree with the copyright laws and I don’t have a problem with people downloading the movie and sharing it with people as long as they’re not trying to make a profit off my labour. I would oppose that,â€‌

              “I do well enough already and I made this film because I want the world, to change. The more people who see it the better, so I’m happy this is happening.â€‌
              Needless to say, Hollywood moguls were not pleased and the "steal f911 for great justice" movement is quietly forgotten.

              In case you're wondering, my position on copyright and other intellectual property (what a notion!) can be best summarised here:

                  OMFG!

                  I almost got busted for breaking copyright laws.

                  fortunately, i was legally using the "intellectual property". I owned the game i was pirating.

                  But NOOO, they couldn't ask if i had it first. I owned UT, but the CD got cracked. that's all! I even stillhave the pieces to prove it.

                    Anyone who is making an effort to show up the idiocy of the current US Administration is OK in my books, but maybe not really a genius. He is just good at what he does

                          You want him to join the side of the current US administration?

                              I wouldn't be too concerned - I have a number of good friends who have almost diametrically opposed political viewpoints to me. Doesn't mean we don't argue about it sometimes, but our other common interests and friendship is strong enough to overcome this.
