Yes but SO WHAT? IS THAT A SIN? YOU ARE PINK BECAUSE I SAY SO, AND WHEN

YOU DIE YOU ARE GOING STRAIGHT TO HELL! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! And if you

were a REAL MAN, you would agree with me! Nickie is a better preacher

than you, therefore she is automatically RIGHT and automatically WINS, no

matter how *filthy* her sins(tm) are! It's the revival of trial by

ordeal/combat in the modern forum! Trial by precedent MUST DIE!

Besides, you used the word

"others" in a serious context, which means you are EVIL! "Oh no, reverend

nickie is posing a threat to the character armor of others! Nurse, fetch

the thorazine! Oh, no, Doktor Legume causes others to be upset! Oh no, a

mean guy! Oh no, a great furry Yeti in my living room!" MEAN PEOPLE KICK

ASS! REAL people pose a threat to the security of others by there very

STENCH, so do your bitching to your momma, and maybe a tit will fall on

you from the sky.

OH NO! It's the overall viewpoint of SubGeniusdom! Run while you still

can, before we become NeoTech! Or better yet, take up arms and CAST OUT

THE FALSE PROPHETS, you namby-pamby pantywaist buttsuckers! The TRUE

biggest problem with this newsgroup is that when someone such as

iceknife, nenslo, nickie, legume etc attempts to do some launchin',

everybody starts bitchin'! FACE IT, the goodguy badges of "nice" and

"mean" are totally irrelevant next to the TRUE chariot of "kickass" or

"lameass"! Get off your high horses, quit your armchair rationalism, take

up your SWORDS, and FOLLOW ME! The Snurgs await! Or if you're too lazy to

go to Paskastedaskotrakitchetoon, AT LEAST (no, okay chill, they're not

ready to hear that part yet, it's okay, no sense blowing people's minds

when they don't want it, they'll only retreat further, chill man, chill. Ok.)

Folks, this is a very true statement, but it is used to connote its

antithesis. Notice that she has been repeating this same dogma from the

beginning, this anti-dogma dogma, and it is getting LAME AND BORING,

which does more to subvert the purpose of the church than any

antellectual lifeless theorem she may propose ad nauseam. Now who wants

to go to Canada and see some REALLY COOL SHIT in Paskasketoon?
