    lenin was a revisionist of marx's works

    you can have leninism without stalinism, it just isn't called ''leninism''

    This is completely unrelated to the current discussion going on, but where did the IoT acronym come from? I've seen the full forum game title as Imperium Offtopicium, making it IOt, and I've also seen Imperium OffTopicium meaning IOT. But I've never seen Imperium offTopicium.

    We are at the head of a global conglomerate of disparate media and technological interests. We had a net profit of [REDACTED] in the first term of the year and our board members are advised to liquidate their investmenta and flee to New Zealand before tge bubble bursts.

    Rosalind is our agent of contact there. She has been scouting ahead and preparing the ground for our landing.

    Ask me in the right thread and I might deign to answer. [pissed]

    As best I recall after a brief period right at the beginning before things standardized, 'IoT' was only regularly used by NESers/the uninitiated. Some people thought certain users did it deliberately as an elitist back-hand.

    Moderator Action: As a reminder, the very post from over seven years ago instructs everyone thus: This thread is NOT a place to attack others, flame, spam, or discuss things that would be better suited for the OT forum.

    Furthermore, please start a new gaming chat thread, as this one is well overdue for closure.

    Far be it from me to publicly discuss the words of our moderators but why exactly is Argentina "well overdue for closure"?

    I think the question mark is probably meant to go inside the quotation marks but that also seems like it wouldn't make sense and its not like I'm any good at English or just generally expressing opinions anyway

    The staff have noticed thread corruption in rare cases with super long threads. As such, I've made the effort to close threads upwards of 8,000 posts.

    There is no intention to serialise the threads after 1000 posts, move them to the Recycle Bin or anything like that.
