Arrow What happened?

First of all I'd just like to thank Paolo for sending that message out to everyone at sb.com. I know that many, like myself, do much more reading than writing on these forums but I can't go a day without my daily dose of political bickering.

On another note, what the hell happened to the politiks section at sb.com? I made a post about this one banned book, not to say that this is at all related, and then a day later our little section went back a month into the past and no one has posted a word in over a week now. Strange,yes, but I'm not one to call shenanigans just yet.

I'm pleased to see that mpd is alive and livin' in yet another forum I have missed your antics and arguments in the past few months. sb.com just isn't the same without someone stirring up the heat.

So this is our new home I take it? has sb.com officially passed into the realm of insignificance or is it just another lull.

i did what now?

hi kev.... sb.com has sadly been spiralling for some time and so i sent out that a.p.b. to salvage whatever / whoever represented any kind of value from places such as this to myself.... and so here you find a smaller colony of newbs, olds and sb.com 'refugees'. and i am glad to see that you made it!

this place is more 'grass roots' and has a proper nice vibe to it. the poli section is 'new' in that it was allowed only after new, regular visitors made a fuss enuff to have it installed... that means, that unlike in other more authoritarian www sites, we have an influence (albeit one guarded by sanction) and thus we have a chance to invest time and effort.

whilst our old stomping ground was, lets say, prone to the more hysterical side of posting (ie MPD's element) here you can and should say what you want, but reverting back to lowest common denominators, doesn't get you too far. to say there is a zero tolerance to flame, is i think too harsh, because with adequate eloquence, arses can still be handed to others.

enjoy.

if you make racially derived statements (which you admit you did, to the extent of even repeating them here) you cannot act with disdain when people call you a racist.

for sure you might wish to reassure us, that such comments aren't true of 'the real MPD' but in here, we can only perceive the MPD that presents himself, and with comments like that, the MPD online is one capable of racist comment (to the extent of even quoting himself in completely new and seperate www sites!!!!) WTF?

you expect others to take responsibility for how they behave online, to the detrement of the site they supposedly serve; but you cannot see how you have no one else to blame but yourself, if people consider you a racist?

now would be a good time for you to either extract your head from your arse my friend, or let sleeping dogs lie.

as eloquent as ever mr Wolf. kudos.

but to emphasise another aspect of this use of slang language; one might also consider context.

a limey no more gorges themselves on citrus fruit, any more than a seppo is full of shit, but those deemed camel jockies or sand monkies, can be said to dwell in such locations and so slander can be enforced thru a sense of prejudice which is otherwise removed due to sheer nonsense.

also, any reference i made of a seppo (just as an example, i am not on the defenisve here) was made to the seppo in question. if i needed to pull my head in because of this, the recipient of the slang was at least there to tell me to do as much. brown baggers etc who were being regarded were not present and thus had no chance to complain or even address the slur.

in addition, i might call a lottery winning friend a 'lucky bastard' but i would never think to call an unknown passer by the same term. to me, the use of seppo, whilst in the minds of strangers might be offensive, was used for those reservedly called friends, who i had hoped knew me well enuff and with adequate affection, that no such offense would ever be taken.

of course the colourful terms of MPD do not cause me offence, but i am not incapable of considering them as they are, in the context in which they are presented.

incidentally, i am racist. i cannot stand the spanish (note, i refer to those from spain, not those who speak spanish)

i don't understand the motives for this regurgitation of ancient and other site history. no one cares MPD so just let it go.

we get it.... its not your fault.... it is their fault for manufacturing in you, something they wanted you to be.... frankly i think the lady doth protest too much.

if you feel compelled to apologise for dancing to the beat of their drum then do so and then move on.

get 'closure' in whatever way you think possible, but just move on. you do yourself no credit, by trying to suggest that you were simply misunderstood because you are not a cross burning, foaming at the mouth zealot. here, you just sound as tho you're trying to make excuses.
