Ford: 'I Hate The Internet'

HARRISON FORD hates the internet, because it means anyone can spread malicious gossip about him. The actor, who plays a computer-security specialist in his latest film FIREWALL, sees a need to censor his words to avoid being misrepresented online. He says, "The worst thing about the internet is that anything and everything is up for grabs. How can that be, when I limit my public conversations to about once every couple of years? "Any kind of rubbish goes on the internet and it can have a f**king life of its own."

It’s spelled “Buffoon”. What are you –twelve?You see this proves my point about idiot posters – you are posting on the Internet (one of the most vast sources of facts and information) and you can’t even take the time to check what you are writing.Your stupid response to my post didn’t make sense. I was commenting on Harrison Ford – you are blathering on about Bush and the French in the revolutionary war. You are a pinhead. You are a mental-masturbator that uses the Internet for a cum rag. At least stick to the issue.

ill bet you love the net when its selling all of your movies thou. dont say stupid things and dont do stupid things, and you wont have to worry about the life they take on. hollywood elitism is a disease that most of your type have, if its important to me then it should be important to everyone syndrome. and when you get criticized, then play victim to the big bad people who remind you of your stupidy. acting is just that acting, faking someone elses identity doesnt take a brain surgeon. good luck with the obvious onset of alzheimers.

Props is short for "propers" as in, "proper respect"Props, short for Propers, -Don't forget that the entire word "propers" is used in the song "Respect", written by Otis Redding and most famously recorded by Aretha Franklin in 1967. At least, I think it is ("all I'm askin' in return honey is to give me my propers when I get home")-

So, maybe you should have just stayed being a carpenter instead of climbing the Hollywood ladder as an actor. You and the other celebrity liberals really amuse me. You don’t hesitate to use your celebrity status when you wish to make a political or social statement – and demand that it be heard. But, when the worm turns and what you say is turned back on you it's wrong, immoral, cheap shot, etc, etc? You can’t have it both ways. Accept the life you’ve worked so hard to achieve and, as for the down side of celebrity, DEAL WITH IT. After all, YOU ASKED FOR IT!

Harrison is just showing his age. He preferred an age where there were a few jealously guarded pipes of one-way communication. TV, Radio, these were the days Harrison obviously preferred. A few anointed twits like Walter Cronkite could keep us all in the dark about what's REALLY going on. Keep us non-thinking listeners, viewer & readers.Now, we have literally billions of pipes of information & they are bi-directional. Any assertion can be countered with a hyperlink. The viewer, reader, listener can immediately react & make his opinion known or check other references. This is a bad thing for Harrison Ford? He preferred us all sitting on the couch like good little school children listening to Dan Rather?Yes, a lie can grow & have a life of its own on the Internet & it can do so very quickly. However, he fails to realize that the lie can crash & burn just as fast.During the .com bubble someone leaked false info on a company and their stock plummeted. However, the company's real CEO set the record straight and the stock immediately shot the other way and ended almost at the exact price it started at that morning, before the lie. This is an example of the self-corrective power of the Internet. This is something Harrison hasn't thought about.Naturally, the Internet presents its share of challenges, but to blow off the greatest bi-directional communication medium ever devised is...well...kinda small mindedI guess I'm back to asking: 'why does anyone give a flying f**k what a celebrity thinks about ANYTHING but acting and show business?'

Look, this has nothing to do with Hollywood liberals or Bush – Ford’s issue is one of privacy and having a basic respect for human dignity. As a public figure he is susceptible to public scrutiny and criticism, but as a human being he has an intrinsic right to privacy and to not be subjected to unfair or false attacks. By saying that Harrison Ford gets what comes with the territory is to make an exception for personal abuse. One exception leads to another – it affects us all.I’m not for censoring the Internet – I believe that fair minded and balanced people should come to the defense of people that are being publicly attacked - we can blog too. Usually, we read the rantings of over-opinionated idiots and say nothing.We can’t stop abusers, but we can outweigh them by making sensible postings the majority of postings.

Hey Foon, opps I mean Buffon. Your response proved that my reply to your blog was correct. Did you have your neighbor write that reply for you or did you get that out of a gangster rap magazine? Honestly, I did not take your insult personally and it was a good laugh. To bad that you cannot laugh at a good slam especially when you opened up the door.

Hollywood stars are just a recent version of organ-grinder monkeys....they get so angry when people don't take them seriously. They should just be happy when people throw money in the hat and laugh...even that could be gone one day.

I too was fooled for a while into thinking there was something of value to H.F. I now realize that I was fooled by his silence. I thought it was a matter of "still water running deep" however, now that he is flapping his jaws, I realize that his silence was a clever cover to mask his basic vapidity. He is a typical, biased, overly-emotional Leftist; filled with misinformation, and lacking the ability to separate opinion from fact. Like other "stars" who often lack solid secondary educational credentials, his ability to reason is severely compromised. However, he is "rich" so he doesn't have to have to justify his weak intellect. He can bully on, secure in the belief that his keen intellect and sharp tongue can move the world to a better place, if only the common folks will accept the benefit of his thinking. Lacking formal education, it is easy to believe that one is very clever, and very rational, and very logical. I'm sorry to laugh at H.F, but he waves his foolishness like a standard, so he must be seeking attention.

Hey Spike, I just have to laugh. No one should be offended when YOU call them a moron or bafoon. All they have to do is consider the source. How can you say "no body helped us with our fight for independence" and then in another post say "the French played a BIG PART..."? There's old saying: Keep quiet and people may think you a fool, or speak and prove them right.Thanks for the proof.
