The Intelligencia Emergesgreenspun.com : LUSENET : TB2K spinoff uncensored : One Thread
I cannot thank you enough, Old TB2K forum regular, for having the foresight to continue the tradition of this board. The clean format is a welcome sight, as are the familiar names of those I respect. After only a few days at the ezboard it became clear that the interesting people were not there. Now I have found you.
I knew the old board was history when they banned Flint. Then I knew that the control had fallen into the hands of people who were unable to understand the essence of debate. The beauty of the forum was lost on them while under the influence of the delete key.
It is great to see each of you, and I expect many others to return as the fruity graphics begin to take their toll.
Now get to work. Make me think. Make me laugh. Defend your opinion, and make me defend mine.

I'm no longer particularly upset at not being permitted to participate in such a wide-ranging agreement with Yourdon's opinion and heated, raucous support of his purposes, OR ELSE.
However, I cannot in good faith argue against anyone who holds the correct (my) opinion on anything, than which there is no better. I don't argue just for the sake of argument, picking some contrary position just for sport, you know. I argue to get you to AGREE with me, which is obviously in your best interest. Which you'll come to realize sooner or later, so why not sooner?

"Fruity graphics" LOL! That's just the kind of talk that'll get you banned.
Good to see you here.

Just thought I'd repost my last response on the old board..............my 2 bits on the situation.
Kicking out Flint..........give me a break you dopes!! He was closer to the truth than 99.5% of the folks here. Hell, he was almost as accurate as me in the final assessment! Of course I'm using an alias here but anyone with a speck of intelligence who visited here often since the beginning will know who I am. I am God.......whoops, no I'm not.........just kidding (and deliberately annoying the self-righteous goofs that I know are here!
Ergo, am I banned too just because I spoke firmly about my beliefs that Y2K would be about a 2 or 3 and occasionally said shit because I think writing sh*t is just plain silly?
Or am I persona non grata because I sometimes made light of Andy's extreme paranoia and negative 'We're all gonna die and only gold will save us' attitude?
Let's use some common sense guys! The SPOON is restless. The SPOON knows all. The SPOON commands the entry of Flint into the new forum. If you do not know the SPOON, then please send $25.00 and a self addressed envelope to Box 5541, Fort McMurray, AB. Canada, T9H 3G5 and I will send you detailed information about the SPOON.
Andy, please send $25.00 worth of gold eagle coins..........
Bruce (Beach), please send a used school bus.........
Diane, please send $25.00 worth of good vibes.............
