  1. Abric always making people do his work for him. Since ever. I may respond seriously after I go through logs and screenshots. I've reactivated my account and I think The Grim would suit Keeju really well.
  2. <p>No you! D:</p>

  3. <p>Mort! The changes to the website are amazing. I love what you've done with TNG. It loads faster. It looks snazzy. And it's so pretty!</p>

  4. <p>Silly boy.</p>

  5. <p>ELLSBETH! <img src="<fileStore.core_Emoticons>/emoticons/biggrin.png" alt=":D" srcset="<fileStore.core_Emoticons>/emoticons/biggrin@2x.png 2x" width="20" height="20" />!!!!</p>

  6. <p>I appreciate that you think so. I tend to avoid any sort of talk that could cause people to go crazy in serious discussion because of that. It's also the reason I avoid the politics thread (not even a member)! I just figured this time people might be more interested in discussing than getting red in the face. *Crosses fingers*</p>

  7. True true true. It's just whenever racism gets brought up on a message board it tends to turn into something very crazy. And I won't hurt you Jeedup. You're Blue Glowy. It's May Fourth today. So may the 4th be with you.
  8. <p>Naw. Your posts in that thread are useful and interesting. Same with the conflict/discussion between Gorvena, you, a few others. It's just that I find the trolling moments in between lackluster and untalented. Trolling here has really fallen to the wayside. It used to have some actual content behind it.</p>

  9. This is what happens when politics leaves the Political forum. It becomes a travesty of poorly attempted trolling in between useful posts by about six people.
  10. <p>I do try. You know it's all I have up here in the cold embrace of socialism -- satire or at least government sanctioned satire in the form of socialist media.</p>

  11. <p>You complete me.</p>

    <p>At the very least, you complete my satire.</p>

  12. Canada had abolished slavery by 1834 so purchasing "cheap slaves" from Canada wouldn't really have made much sense. Purchasing slaves in any British Colony past the beginning of the 1800s would also have not made much sense. While there were still poor indentured workers, they were "freed" by 1834 in an act of the Commonwealth. I'm just a bit confused here since what I've learned about economics in the South during the years up to the civil war was that slave owners were making massive profits because they didn't have to pay wages. While not all slave owners were bastards who beat their slaves, these folk were just considered livestock. And yes, Uncle Tom's Cabin was a book that brought the plight about slavery to the forefront (while also making black people seem like stupid puppets) and into the homes of many Americans that by this time didn't have slaves. But I think I'm mostly confused because I remember the big huge issue about the statue of Saddam Hussein being torn down by American soldiers in Iraq. It was supposed to be a symbol of that country's freedom from oppression. You know... tearing down a statue that immortalised times that most people didn't want to remember. A symbol of times before occupation or before a war was fought. When that went down it was a big triumph. When this goes down it's a travesty to history?

  14. Do you have the van? So I'm on the phone with Adobe right now waiting on a supervisor to tell me whether I get the upgrade to CS5 for free since the cut-off date for the free upgrade was March 13th and I registered my copy on March 9th. Groovy groovy synth jazz at Adobe.
