This certainly isn't justice

I'm not sure how many "Spam Kings" there are, but this one sure took his conviction to the extreme. I certainly hope that we're able to figure out how stop spam, but this is not the outcome anyone would hope for.

Oh, please. Let's hope not::

"First of all, expect some crazy new creatures. If you've seen Hellboy or his epic Pan's Labyrinth, you know del Toro would go beyond Orcs and talking trees. He promises to respect J.R.R. Tolkien's and Peter Jackson's creations, but sees many more new ones. 'I plan to bring myself to The Hobbit,' he said. 'No doubt about that.'"

I loved Pan's Labyrinth, and I enjoyed the first Hellboy. But I really don't want to populate Tolkien's world with del Toro's creatures. I'd be interested in seeing how he sees the creatures that are already there, but I don't want any new ones that aren't in the text.

As you read the article, you'll see that they mention that The Hobbit was Tolkien's tot-sized adventure. I never felt that it was any less imagined, or designed for a younger audience than the LoTR. Did you?
