1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Seems that way, Soph . . .

    You know, I don't think TC has been 'right,' ever since he made that abysmal film, with Stanley Kubrick. EYES SHUT OPEN, or whatever it was called. That was one, weird flick. [​IMG]

    Maybe TC was planning his own version of "Battlefield Earth"?

    Tom Cruise is a top notch actor and should be respected for his skill

    I think bashing on Brooke Shields is what really did him in.
    She sought proper medical care from an MD, something Tom Cruise is not.

    I think it's for the bad publicity he has gotten from hes performances on Oprah, intervjues and the scientology.

    It's may just be that easy.

    I think that Cruise played the hedge fund deal against Paramount and Redstone blinked, now he's covering his ass. Seriously, how is Cruise damaged goods? His two flicks did $1 billion worldwide this year and that's all that counts in Hollywood.

    Well according to the article, MI-3 did worse than the other two when it was more critically acclaimed. Paramount claims Cruise lost them $150M of lost revenues on the movie, and I don't doubt it, with all the bullshit leading up to the release of MI-3 and negative publicity.
