Uwe Boll is an unpopular man - the type of person gamers love to hate. The German director has bought to the big screen adaptations of games like House of The Dead, Postal and Dungeon Siege and the results have been almost universally poorly received.

So, the question on the minds of many gamers is simple - how do we stop the Boll? The answer is simple - just sign your name on the list.

Speaking to FearNet recently, Uwe Boll had his attention drawn to an online petition geared at trying to stop him from making any more films. The bad news is that Uwe was a bit dismissive of the list, which has so far bagged about 18,000 signatures. The good news is that he let on how many signatures it would take to shut him up.

"18,000 is not enough to convince me," Boll told the interviewer. Then he was asked how many it would take to convince him. "One million. Now we have a new goal."

Personally, I'm not going to sign up. Half of that is sheer laziness, but the other half is that I actually enjoy coming back from the pub and laughing my way through his films with some friends. What about you though? Do you want to stem the flow, or open the floodgates? Let us know in the forums.
