Mark left of his own volition. I think it's fair to say that Dissensus didn't turn out like he expected.

It's slightly less fair to say that many of us had our own plans which did not live up to his lofty standards. And even less fair than that to say that we were perhaps not as deferential as he liked.

The other co-founder was Matt Ingram aka Woebot.

Simon Reynolds was a huge inflence on both founders and the forum but was not actually a founder of the place himself.

you guys don't have sweet 16 over there, do you?

While both young men and young women celebrate their Sweet 16 today, sweet 16 traditions such as the candle ceremony, father-daughter dance, passing of heirlooms and the shoe ceremony are typically reserved for young women.

I never heard of boys celebrating sweet 16, it's usually a girls thing. mostly just an excuse to get some presents/cash from parents and relatives, and then head out and find someone 21+ who will buy booze for you and proceed to get drunk (and/or laid). and maybe the spare set of keys to the family car.

18 is a big deal here because you can get legally served in pubs...

There are no, erm, ceremonies though.
