PKD is Wiped Out on Rifftax
« on: January 04, 2019, 08:49:25 AM »
The sci-fi author PKD - whose full name I cannot even write because the past two times I did, Rifftrax eliminated his last name as it looks like a four-letter-word - was the man behind movies and series: Blade Runner (Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?), BOTH Total Recalls (We Can Remember it For You Wholesale), and Man in the High Castle (Man in the High Castle), as well as lesser known box office bombs Impostor (Impostor), Screamers (Second Variety) and A Scanner Darkly (A Scanner Darkly).  He wrote many science-fiction classics both as novels and short stories.

But when I tried to recommend the rotten "Screamers" as a possible movie to be riffed, I mentioned PKD's full name and his last name was blotted out by Rifftrax.  Ditto when I complained about it!  I have a feeling that whoever is monitoring the Rifftrax boards has never deigned to read a PKD novel or anthology because it's "only" science-fiction, has no idea who this man was and only wants to prevent the slipping in of a four-letter-word.  I think that Rifftrax should not blot out an author's last name because it "looks" like something naughty.  It annihilates PKD's substantial legacy to the American imagination in film and print.

Philip K Dick is one of my favorite authors. Have read everything available that he wrote short of a couple of his non-scifi novels. Was majorly disappointed in the recent Amazon anthology series loosely based on his short stories.

There is a checkbox in your profile to turn censoring on and off:   


Profile : Look and Layout : Leave words uncensored



Edit:  Just tried it and it didn't censor the word dick, so don't know what the OP is talking about.

 I was thinking spammer also, but so far no added links.

Maybe the expectation is to remove some sort of filter which apparently doesn't exist and then spam porno-stuff?  Whatever, this is a weird-ass post.
