This thread went from very interesting cool theoretical discussion, to shared and varied opinions, to some "I really like TRON, but I don't like this about it and I hate that about it, and this is too vague so I'll fill in my own blanks like this and there can be no other plausible interpretations... but I really like TRON" and then some excellent rebuttals, and then more unfortunate "you've failed, and I'm right, and TRON has too many unexplained problem areas that I must fill in like I do, but I really like it"...
I'm sorry. I kind of find it amusing.
I LOVE TRON so much, and the personification of programs as people and their ties to their Users, and the whole concept of what TRON is - both it's universe (or rules if you will) and fantastic story.
Are you a troll Doug Jacoby? Are you here to stir up trouble? If so, you're just wasting your time. The members here will grow bored of you very quickly if you exhibit troll-like behavior. If you're not a troll, take it easy, man! TRON is just a movie - meant to be fun and inspiring (in my opinion). Sure - it's an awesome philosophy as well, with a fantastic premise and story, and amazing visuals (for the time, and even today). But it's just a work of entertainment. It was never meant to be a 100% solid explanation for what goes on inside the digital world and how programs might "feel" and spell out every exact detail of what a digitized User can do inside the digital world. It's a story and a fantastic journey for you to take each time you watch it. I'm with DaveTRON in the whole "I don't want TRON to spell it all out" end. I enjoy the film for what it is, the philosophy behind it, and the cool visuals, and the great fun it is.
I really wanted to jump in to this discussion before it got to the "no - you are wrong and you fail to illustrate your point" crap. Once that happened, I had no desire to share how I see TRON. Of course, DaveTRON really nailed much of what I would have said anyway... and he added a lot of great things I would not have thought of.

I don't know.
I'm thinking Doug Jacoby is a TRON fan who may be a little confused about what he likes and dislikes about the film and how he has interpreted certain elements. I think he brings up interesting points, thought some of them seem off and inaccurate. Everyone is allowed their opinions.
Again, I'm not sure we have a troll here. I'm more inclined right now to think he's been met here with responses he didn't expect and doesn't agree with. Perhaps he feels put on the defensive.
One thing is for sure. We all get along rather well here and show great respect for each member here. Those who have difficulty getting along don't last too long and are not missed when they leave.
Doug - if you really dig TRON and like what The Sector has to offer, just take it easy and be cool. We're all friends here
