People need to pay the writer. Don’t ask for stuff for free.
My thoughts: Right on!

So how much do you think he got paid for that interview? Of course, he could have done it for free, for the publicity!
Burn the place to the ground? That’s so “Office Space”. FWIW, I think his message would have been every bit as compelling without the vulgarity.
That interview is from an upcoming film, and I’d guess this is a teaser to help sell the film. And I’d guess that, unlike the WB DVD, he makes money from the film.
IMO, without the vulgarity, there’s no way that this little piece would have made it to as many eyeballs. People love how he cusses, and it makes the thing funnier and more worthy of passing on to lots of people.
It’s true that the point could be made without that kind of language. But the distribution would be lower.
That’s sad, but likely true. I don’t need a bunch of f-bombs to get my attention, but I guess the hoi poloi do.
I just *had* to use that phrase, since a manager kept saying “and ek cetra”, in the process of telling us that we’re going to stop working on something that would never fly, and focus instead on something that will never even start up.
