    People applaud the action taken.

    They are happy to see the people detracting from everyone else's enjoyment removed.

    Now the removal of an obnoxious person, I totally get. But no way you can convince me that people would be applauding the removal of a person making a quick check on their phone.

    I knew because there wasn't a valid reason forthcoming. You haven't provided on in this entire thread.

    Just 30 posts claiming not to care...

    I would. What you're doing is rude whether you care or not. Obviously you don't care which fits in line with you're doing it in the first place.

    I don't have to convince you of anything. I've stopped trying on that.

    I've repeatedly stated that the behavior offends others and you've repeatedly said you're fine with detracting from the enjoyment of others.

    Have fun contributing to making the world a worse place rather than a better one.

    Your right, not the best example because a light however small coming on in a dark room is a hell of alot more disturbing than small sounds.

    Yeah, I don't buy it...and I'd be an idiot to think you'd cause an uproar over somebody checking their phone vs an obnoxious cell phone abuser.

    This debate isn't fun per se, but I'm highly amused by your self-righteousness throughout it. The fact you think I'm making the world a worse place over something this minor is hilarious to say the least.

    While viewing this thread, it became apaprent that this is the offseason. That's the period of time when people look for things to talk about. This thread may be heading to the type of thread like the infamous "waiter" thread that was here some time ago. I have learned that if you are going to the movies, you should probably:
    A: give your phone to someone else to answer or ignore
    B: Sit beside Sarge and steal his beer and popcorn.
    C: Carry a laser pointer and REALLY annoy someone
    D: Actually watch the movie, uninterrupted.:D

    To you maybe.. not to me. To me, a group of teenagers yucking it up the entire movie is much more distracting than a tiny light going off somwhere in the theatre once or twice for a few seconds.

    Ahhhh.. so you enjoy playing "the hero" role. Makes more sense, now. As if your posts in this thread weren't a cry out for attention enough.

    It really upsets me that you can't put laughing emoticons in a post anymore, but this would certainly deserve one, haha.

    I would never actually do it, but C would be hilarious to see someone attempt, just one time.

    "Ok, everyone.. and riiiiight HERE is where Billy Martin's life begins to go downhill!"

    Suggestion D though.. what a novel concept. Good idea!

    Well then, what was your point? lol

    Talking constantly during a movie is much more disturbing than someone checking their phone for a second, to me. If you agree, then what are we even arguing about?

    The fact that you try not to see it is sad to me.

    The same as the person playing their music too loud expecting everyone else to like it.

    Or the person not knowing or not caring if their smoke is bothering others.

    Or the person carrying on so loudly and obnoxiously that they ruin others enjoyment of a night out.

    All the same poor behavior.

    Great company to keep.

    Maybe that's why you would do it.

    I do it because my enjoyment and that of the majority of others is adversely affected

    That is its own reward

    I can handle it.

    Small price to pay for what's right.

    Uh huh.. are you trying to convince me or yourself?

    ..and i wouldn't do it. As you should have already figured out by this point in the thread, im not bothered by this action like you are, stash.

    Not a small price anymore.. the new theaters they are building are getting ridiculous. 10 bucks per ticket, more if its Big D or 3D. 5 bucks each for a small drink. 7 bucks for a medium popcorn. Almost more expensive than going to a ballgame, lol.
