Cable101, that was harsh...and a tad arrogant don't cha think? I will stand toe to toe with you in a Survivor trivia game anytime, and I have a memory disorder!! I have put S9 and S10, along with four episodes of S11 to poetry. My love and devotion for the show is no lesser or greater than anyone's, but one thing it is not...is questionable. I would elaborate, but I've got nothing to prove.
You say you tend to not be swayed by editing anymore, fine, but are you aware that, though perhaps not swayed...you're totally obsessed with it?
When a player steps up and knocks a target out after three attempts...when in actuality they made ten attempts...that's a "no big deal" editing job that probably would never be noticed because nobody cares. But when it's thirty, that presents a skewed impression of that player's challange performance. Plain and simple. If some Survivor fans don't appreciate it, they don't have to appreciate it. But they also don't have to have their comprehension skills questioned either.
