RE: Is Kvining 2 or more persons? Is he Old 300 D? If so WHY?
I bought an 83 SL in March. I visited the Shop to ask a question on the SL forum on something I can't even remember right now. I just happened to notice the OD, was reading a thread about the war, and I posted a reply to somebody's chest beating and I entitled it "The War in Iraq is a Stupid Waste", but being new to the forum, I screwed up and instead of it posting as a reply it started a new thread. I think it shocked some people, because the war still had a lot of support at that time. When I checked back, there were a number of offers to beat me up, put me in a camp, calling me a traitor, etc. Very little on the actual issue of whether the war was a waste. So I decided to fight back.I really never saw any "gentile" discussion forum there. Joe Bauer and Botsnst and Medmech were going after each other with meat axes. Sp0ck and VirginaDude were psychotic. Some other nut kept posting diatribes calling for mass murder of all muslims. Some really disgusting bastard had a real issue with gay people. The place was a freaking zoo. I just wanted to change it from a rant fest to some kind of fact based rant fest. The arrow, as it were, painfuly struck its mark with a lot of unhappy people. I think a lot of resentment started when it became apparent to all that the WMDs did not exist. 90% of the argument was over whether they did or not, and I think the losers in that debate did not like losing.
