I just listened to the episode and it was a 10/10 response. I really appreciate you spending half an hour on the topic.
George - I liked you as Boardroom Executive in Your Magic Touched Me. We actually have a project where we need an experienced Boardroom Executive, so we'll be in touch with your agent about it.
BTW Bad Boy Bubby is a great film I highly recommend you (and everyone) to watch - https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/bad_boy_bubby
Many thanks Charles, looking forward to it!
A quick update - a couple of days ago an actual IMDb employee (not just a devout fan of the weighted scoring system) responded to me on their community board saying that:
- They are aware of my post here (they are watching you!)
- The person who originally replied to me was not an employee, therefore was not speaking on behalf of IMDb, and has in fact been banned for violation of the community guidelines
- One can contact IMDb privately, however all they can say about ratings is covered in the extensive FAQ at https://help.imdb.com/article/imdb/track-movies-tv/ratings-faq/G67Y87TFY... (of course, I had already contacted them privately and they had already provided the link to the FAQ)
So that's that then! Case closed :D
