Re: [mythsoc] loyalty oath
- I have to agree on the issue of discussing the Jackson movies versus JRRT's work. Though visually interesting, the movies are an abomination of the plot, text, spirit and meaning of the text. I don't even find Jackson's final product much better than average as a movie. Average as a movie is a pretty low standard as hollywood productions go. I'd gladly do without any further movie talk.

I did indeed, but I nonetheless disagree with it. This is not a
general-purpose list. Instead, it focusses on mythopoeic literature.
Therefore, I don't view a prospect of being deluged with new
participants that a) want to talk about the movie, not the book; and/or
b) have never read the book, as promising "enrichment" with respect to
the purposes of _this_ list.

1. Goldberry (at least) did work. She had a washing-day while the
hobbits were there.
2. The Lord labored six days.
