you have the right to free speech, as long as you're not dumb enough to actually try it.

I'm not inclined to defend eumaas on much of anything anymore, but, really, it's apparent to me that there wasn't any intent on his part to deceive people in that false quote. It was done to illustrate a point. I'd say just move on and/or use the "Foe" function.

It's been common practice on here for a long time. I believe it was introduced by rcs or Wolter. If you actually read the board, you'd know that.
"The only thing that really occurs to me that I can say on this is to point out how fascinating it is that the Hassan-i-Sabbah archetype keeps turning up over and over again ... He disappears up into the mountains and is never seen again. Believe me, he'll never be seen again. He'll live forever because of that."

I'd say Wolter deliberately misquotes me about 4.5 times a week, I don't really care.
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

Quite right. I engage in such a practice myself. God save the Queen!

You should know we don't have swimming pools in England, we bathe in muddy puddles and polluted rivers. It explains the state of our teeth.

In America, we bathe in bacon grease and ketchup.
