    I deeply disapprove of this thread on the grounds that my postcount is going to take a punch in the gut when the old thread gets archived.

    Is an earlier draft covered? I guess I might have to just go through the contract.

    These threads do not get archived. I think they should do however.

    I disapprove of all archiving. It's much easier to find stuff when they were in their original forums instead of strewn all over the place.

    Can someone tell me if the use of sign up threads still kosher????? As I can see there has been a tightening of the rules of this forum since last time I was here, and I want to make sure I aint stepping on anyones toes.

    Your pc is safe. I don't archive them, they just drift to the bottom. I did think about merging all the old ones at one point.

    I'm wondering if I have a legal leg to stand on if I distributed a copyrighted paper of mine to the nesing community. On, reflection I don't seem to have one.

    Moved from Alternative Timeline Experiment. The nesing community is going to try and explain to me the twisted skein of logic that is Lord of Elves explanation for the euro-centrism. I personally think the arguement started at this point .

    The logic behind which has completely eluded me. So is the whole debate as surreal as I think?

    Anonymoose wants to have a NES where players played insects in the lawn. SimAnt meets A Bug's Life meets National Geographic? GOOD IDEA OR BAD

    I think the whole argument is moot, and has little at all to do with any NES period, and I have ended my involvement in the discussion. The last thing I am going to say about it is that in my opinion Eurocentrism is the product of European colonialism, and the belief by European colonists that they were dealing with inherently inferior cultures and civilizations.

    And yes, it is quite as surreal. More than half of the time you played my words back to me, but it is moot, I have discontinued my involvement. It was turning into a text fight, and I have better things to do on the forum than try to verbally beat things.

    If you're going to verbally beat things you could have at the very least used the proverbial spiked club instead of the proverbial rubber chicken.

    I'm a history enthusiast, not a warrior. :p

    I could make a better argument if I wanted, but I question whether the conversation belongs in any thread on this forum.
