Probably. It's also depressing to watch a 40-something guy get really sycophantic towards the girls of the forum like "omg you are so beautiful!!!!111" :|

I wonder if the girl who got pregnant one year at Bloodstock on a one night stand ever found the father

Yep, I don't remember much about the thread though.

I for one miss the bowel movements thread, I had a once in a decade level shit earlier that needed to be discussed.

I was stood next to you in the tent at Bloodstock (Ward XVI possibly?) but there was no point introducing myself as it was too loud to hear anything anyway.

Quite probably. If it was that band then I think I was extremely hungover at that point.

Ha ha. I don't get to see that any more. He blocked me a while back after completely failing to see that I was arguing for democracy, not supporting fascism. Ho hum...

I don't know Black Lagoon, but I'm still in touch with the other two, along with Kim, Raven, Hamdir, Andiferum, Dansiferum and a bunch of other former forum people.

It was maybe a little past its heyday, but it was still a well populated and viable place to interact with other festival goers. But the last update killed it off. And they don't care.

I remember that! Didn't seem to get that free speech is absolute and you don't have to support what's being said to defend that! Rest assured he still seems to be able to argue opposing points on different threads without apparently noticing!

im about to digress but just to clarify. freedom of speech, or more broadly freedom of expression, is far from absolute. in fact, theres quite a few exceptions. cheers. :)

That was the point, really - Andy basicly argued he couldn't support anyone who defended the free speech of an opinion he didn't like. Just because there are legal limits does not mean people agree on those limits and some are more libertarian than others and do beleive that that freedom should be absolute.

That's the ironic thing about 'human rights' - they grant us freedoms we already had then put limits on them.
