Review deletion bitching
OK, now I'm sure as anything that this doesn't qualify as abusive:
Here's the original submission
And here's my review deletion notification:
This message is to inform you that the following review, which you left for The Magic of The 8 ball on 2/28/08 at 11:09:32 AM, has been deleted:
Score: 1 / 10
Summary: Somebody doesn't know how to use random functions
Review: Read up on them!
Please review the review guidelines in the FAQ to ensure that you're following the rules and to prevent any further action being taken against other reviews you make.
Short and possibly a little tactless - yes - but I was offering genuine advice. It's clear to anyone playing the game with any knowledge of scripting that the guy had just put a load of gotoAndStop() functions on different frames, which is neither the fairest nor most efficient way of coding his project. My suggestion that he look up real random functions would have genuinely helped him in future projects if he took it.
The only reasons I can think of why my review would have been flagged would be either that someone who doesn't know about scripting assumed it to be spam, or that for whistle point farmers anything giving less than a four out of ten is fair game (why even bother having the option to give lower scores?)
So yeah, if anyone can suggest why a review offering a constructive piece of advice and giving a score which reflects of opinion of the game deserved to be flagged, please enlighten me.

gotoAndPlay Flash Movie/Game
Ok so we covered movies... now lets move into the portal... is there a flash animation or game that you can go back to and play regardless of wether you've seen it many times and or beat it in the case of a game?
Dopefission by TMST :P I don't know why - it's just really addictive viewing.

Is There Will Be Blood any good?
Aw, I totally want to see that :( The only person I know who actually likes decent, dramatic films has already been to see it with her dad (LAME), so I'm a little stuck unless I want to be a complete loser and see it on my own.
