I love Stan and I'm definitely not saying he was crazy but sometimes his posts I couldn't make heads or tails and that's when I get worried about density and private languages, private languages give your writing this alluring texture, people want to learn to speak you, but if it's too much there's no possibility of breaking the cypher, people just give up

all that is definitely interesting isnt it. a lot of people got really angry with stan when he first turned up, before we started treating him like a cuddly mascot

One of the first posts I ever saw on this site was stans 'tentpole of ideology' post which if not for luka bullying him in the comments would have given me a very different impression of the forum

Given the subject of the thread, look at this. Look at the boldness of the diagram in comparison to the text.
