SFOTW: Google doesn't carry the binaries groups, so I'd go looking for a free news server. Try going to the following and click on the "servers with binary image groups". You get a list, but I didn't bother trying any of the servers to see if they actually worked.

Rei -

I took you seriously for about 60 seconds. But you know what? It doesn't matter, because you suck. You must hate a lot - the thinly veiled anti-semitic remarks in your posts belie your true intent, which is to waste bandwidth and pollute these forums with your juvenile banter.
2001-08-13 06:53:27 PM  
I am OFFENDED! By ALL of you, no matter your opinions! Heheheh!
2001-08-13 06:56:46 PM  

Reading fark and being a jerk at the same time must be quite difficult for you. And I must wonder - are you typing with your nose? Because, given your posts, I'd think your hands would be too busy to type. Excuse me for a moment, I'm going to print your post out so I can line the bottom of my bird cage with it.

You kids in the back had better sit down. Don't make me have to pull over and come back there. [Uses radio] "45 to base; I have children who are arguing, what do I do?"

This is offtopic, but... What does P.S.A. mean?

The author of this article speaks with the voice of reason. Too bad that is wasted on most.

I am offended by "tard" comments. Simplicity is not a crime. Stupidity is. Please learn the difference.

Hey bonobo, just tell rei you're gay and she'll agree with everything you say.

Gay or liberal. She's soft that way.

I'm wondering if she's the BUTCH or the GIRL in her dyke relationship. I'm leaning towards the BUTCH.

PSA - please stop asking
2001-08-13 07:58:50 PM  
Here's a straight answer. PSA stands for Public Service Announcement....Hey I thought it was a valid question...(ducks)....But remember there are no stupid questions--only stupid people. (Quoted from Mr. Garrison on South Park).

I admit, I agree with this guy wholeheartedly. Of course, I enjoy a good non-visceral argument. Most people don't.
2001-08-13 08:19:07 PM  
Rei, thanks for the info on the inscect penis thing.
Nanook, there are times I don't want to hear the voice of reason. I want one of two things:

1) To biatch,gripe,moan and rant.
2) To be entertained by other people biatching, griping, moaning and ranting.

That's one of the reasons I love fark! There's no shortage of biatching, griping, moaning, and ranting here!
2001-08-13 08:19:46 PM  
In conclusion, everybody whines like a little girl.

2001-08-13 08:29:10 PM  
Yes, Rei. I was taking you seriously. Kinda like I take my sliced bread seriously. Thank you for noticing me.

lalala, but some people whine like a puppy when they get farked in the butt. like rei ;)

Hehe. Just to start arguing with people, I think I'm going to denounce my WorldCitizenship, and become ClanWarrior...The Evil LibertarianLiberalRight-Wing-Fanatic Schizo. None of you will be safe...
You're all gay fundamentalist commies!
2001-08-13 09:18:31 PM  
Lick my nads.

Poster Formerly Known as WorldC: Does this mean you are becoming a Hockey Playing Librarian? I thought you were studying History not Library Science?
2001-08-13 09:24:18 PM  
If any two people agree on everything, one of them is unneccessary. Arguing while maintaining respect for your counterpart is healthy for all concerned. It's maintaining that respect that is so difficult at times. And if you don't agree with me, fark off.
2001-08-13 09:25:41 PM  
As ClanWarrior, I can not study books...books must only be burnt. Unless, of course, they are books make for killin'.
2001-08-13 09:30:18 PM  
why should I respect a big tuna head like you?
2001-08-13 09:32:19 PM  

You win ;)

2001-08-13 09:32:22 PM  
Oh, I'm sorry I misread that and thought you said 'librarian' not libertarian. My bad. Oh and by right wing you mean falling to the far right on the political continuum not the position in hockey. Speaking of burning books. I just rewatched "The Rutles" this past weekend and I love the scene where they are burning the Rutles albums and sales go through the roof because people were buying the albums so that they could burn them. Maybe the RIAA and the publishing industry should try this marketing ploy!

PSA= Psychic Sex Angels

I'm too much of a stupid pussy to argue. Please don't yell at me...

Oh, and if you guys want to watch good stupid flamewars and dumbasses argue, I've never seen a bigger conglomeration of idiots than the ones at the www.voodooextreme.com message boards.
2001-08-13 10:41:56 PM  

There's a indie record label called Fueled By Ramen. I just thought some people would find that amusing, since farkers like ramen so much.
2001-08-13 10:48:13 PM  
BillyC: Is that the label that the B.Lee band is on?
2001-08-13 10:48:53 PM  
You are all incorrect and insignificant and your opinions don't count for squat.

HA HA HA..as of 10:41, I had the last word in this argument.

*I didn't mean it.
2001-08-13 10:49:34 PM  
Yeah, like I'm gonna read more than a paragraph
2001-08-13 11:10:35 PM  
All of you people are farking crazed! I just love you man...do I get your Bud Light?

SFOTW: Respect me because I'm a JENIUS, with a capital J! (And I never make any misteaks!)
2001-08-13 11:24:28 PM  
Pbsaurus: I'm pretty sure they are, but the only band I listen to on that label is the impossibles, who are inconceivably good.
2001-08-13 11:48:39 PM  
A good debater always gets the last word.

it's mine now.

Color me Tickle Me Pink, FP.
2001-08-14 12:28:00 AM  
Hmmm, better to argue on the 'net than "have sex" on it. At least with the first one you're using both hands equally.
2001-08-14 12:39:03 AM  
I debate cause it is fun. Good mental exercise.

I also give up easy. I was raised nihilist so I am okay with most opinions. *grins*
2001-08-14 12:40:47 AM  
I can smash all of you so dont argue with me! I am MASTER!
2001-08-14 12:41:03 AM  
A master debator does it until he's satified.
2001-08-14 12:44:41 AM  
that's just silly nanookanano.
