I hope you're wrong, since if you're right, we'll need some kind of PDD-kindergarten letting new members in. But you're probably right - after all, you wouldn't spew out BS like this if you thought it might be fallacious
Of course I wouldn't. Why would anybody think that? Unless they though I was drunk ... but that's a rare occurrence .
Regarding 2003, I don't know why you would bring up that year? I don't remember much from it, apart from the fact that I dropped participating in the end of it. Was it in 2002 that we voted this place into existence? I remember that it was the year where Orbax had just joined up, and was acting like an ass in COR (ok, not much to go by, but at least "the year he joined up" must provide some hints), and John Smith got this beatiful idea. I seem to remember that we just about managed to gather 25 votes, and today we have far more posts beyond our belt than both the gaming and sports forum.
Well I think 2003 was when the forum started going up strong. Yes the forum started in October of 2002, but it was still taking baby steps at that point. Who was around at that point? John Smith, Spyder, Iron Dragon, Trancedfarmer, Renegade, Izzy, Trancgiant, Lira, desidel, LiquidX, You, Biz, and random CORs? I think the consistent regulars solidifed towards the end of 02. Every now and then I always look up John Smith (our "founder") to see if he's ever around. Unfortunetely he seems to have abandoned us for married life . By the way, I don't think I participated in the vote ... do you have a link to that?
Back to topic: I've started stating much more unbacked BS recently. It seems like that is the only way to provoke some response nowadays.
Yea a lot of topics have become too tedious to refute. I admit I've become far more lazier than I used to be ...
What I love(d?) unconditionally about arctic, was that he was sooo intense and passionate about the debates he took part in, yet managed to do them in a most civilized, thoughtful, and orderly manner. His scolding of Nelly in a thread where she used the constitution as ultimate proof comes to mind as a great example. Similarly in the "gay vs. right wingers"-threads. Pure perfection.
He did get in good arguments with Nellie .

Well give me a break, we need some dresscode here!
