Dear mr Col Needham, although we understand that there is a lot of people that can't deal with trolls and the like the fact remain that none of us are forced to post on the messageboards, we do so out of own will.

It is a great way for us to speak in detail about movies in a way that we can't in any other outlet with similar minded peoples. And other topics as well.

The beauty of analyzing film and getting a deeper understanding of them by coming together and bringing up ideas of what a story is REALLY about in a movie that very few people have seen perhaps none in our social circles. Or perhaps finding friends that you otherwise would have no interaction with. Or just recommend obscure independent films that no one has heard about because it wasn't funded by a major company that could afford advertising.

So while we acknowledge that there are negatives with the boards the positives way outweighs the negatives.

So please let us keep our IMDB.

    Please re-open the IMDb message board. It was a place where I got a lot of helpful information on movies. I would very much appreciate it if it was re-opened. Thank you.

    I've greatly reduced my visits to IMDb now that the message boards are gone. Discussions have not moved to social media and I can't find anywhere to engage with online community when it comes to specific plot points or obscure movies.
