obnoxious, narcissistic, self-aggrandizing, quasi fascistic ones will be tolerated, (obnoxious) communists such as hundredmillionlifetimes will be banned.
nor is mr. reynolds and his all-encompassing theory of the continuum. all are treated with much respect and reverence, and some grovelling
not enough trolling threads.
i think the people who banned him owe him an APOLOGY and should ask him to come back.
Anyway, in answer to gumdrops' original question, I think the forum is certainly a bit quieter than it was a few years ago but "dead" is an overstatement. Look at the Adam Curtis thread: lanugo is claiming Curtis is a shill for the NWO because he seeks to explain global socioeconomic phenomena in terms of the human motives of politicians and business leaders rather than portraying them as depraved psychopaths who cackle madly as they drink the blood of Christian infants; grizzleb, IdleRich, rob_giri and I are disagreeing with him; padraig (u.s.) is sticking up for lanugo and we've already had words like "stupid", "childish" and "fuck off" flung aroung. It's just like old times!
Haha, I can see why you might think that, but HMLT didn't have lanugo's monomaniacal obsession with grand conspiracies and while I often disagree with lanugo, in all fairness he doesn't possess anything like Mr. Lifetimes' raw obnoxiousness.
Agreed on both counts. But yunno, people change...
