    It seems to say that even though we claim the site is moderated, if something slips through, it's still the fault of the person making the post, not us, at least in terms of libel.

    So now that you two are both together again at this late hour, why aren't you plotting to take over the world?
     

  11. That was Smurf and I, not Pengwuino.

  14. Keep talking, I'll have the guys at work send at Tomahawk Cruise missile through your window.

    Aww, there goes you and your house. Poof, gone.

  15. Yeah, Smurf and I and I think honestrosewater. Not sure if it was her though. Must have been back in late-mid 04 I think.

    Gosh, I feel sad, when I think how long ago some of that stuff was. 3 years ago, 2 years ago. Its really sad.
