  1. Sounds like a nice idea, I wonder if it'd be possible to implement it.

    The episodes were restored some time in September. All is fine.

    Do you like Sunset Shimmer?

    Sunset is part of the reason I like EQG so much.

    Do Pedos have a place in Fandoms?

    They don't, or at least I hope they don't. As a fandom that has children within it, we should make it clear that pedos need to get out.

    Does any one recognize this song

    I never watched the show (Littlest Hobo), but I remember it was referenced years ago on a Canadian show called Corner Gas.

    Does any one recognize this song

    That's also the theme song to The Littlest Hobo.

    Spike! Wings or Without?

    I prefer it simply for the fact that, despite me not liking Spike as a character, it was a much needed development of his character.
  9. This one is a classic, and one of my all-time favorite fan songs. It shows it age since none of the people in the song are still doing fan stuff.
  10. It's been pretty chilly today, considering it's summertime now. 14 Celsius is not what I expected in June.

      I'd say that's normal in Canada, no ?

      You would think, but these days I expect 18-24 on average.

    Bought a copy of The Brothers Karamazov recently.

    Bad Ad

    Yeah that's just scareware, it's not actually gonna harm you unless you actually do that shit. This is why I keep adblockers on, people who do this shit.
  14. Does it bother you when black people use the N word in rap music, despite its history?
  15. Someone defending PewDiePie's usage of the N word, which he has since apologized for and takes all blame for, is hardly defending racial slurs. He's defending PewDiePie over a media witch hunt that the Wall Street Journal helped fuel all because he uttered a slur when he was frustrated, which again he apologized for and takes the blame for it. Is he being a bit of a dick? Sure, but he's not a racist. Neither is PewDiePie. I think you're just trying to start drama and you're trying to sensationalize what's happening in the pictures.

    Should racist/bigots in the fandom be exposed?

    I'll jump in once more just to respond to a few things: -It's not being homosexual that's the main problem, it's homosexual acts. It's the same as in Islam. Homosexual sex is seen as nothing more than lustful pleasure that serves no biological purpose, which is why straight couples are approved of since they can have children. It's been that way since Genesis. God creates people with disabilities, diseases and psychological ailments as well, most of the time things you cannot control. You can, as a homosexual, control your sinful sexual urges. (Not saying you are a homosexual, just to be clear) -God may not speak to us directly, but we have the teachings He gave to Jesus. It's only up for interpretation in heretical churches, us in the Orthodox sphere have kept the same doctrine since the founding of the church two millennia ago. Sure you probably don't need religion for it, but it helps. I don't want to derail this thread further into a religion debate, so I'm backing out again. But I wanted to share my piece.

    Competitive is...

    Is TF2 comp (UGC) any different from how it was years ago?

    I've said my piece so I'm good for this thread, but I do enjoy engaging no matter how much I may disagree with something. I do apologize if I said (or wrote, rather) anything rude or abrasive but I do have some passion in what I believe in.

    These are issues the church talks about and has a stance, and I accept that stance. Even though I don't like Islam, Orthodox Christianity has had a long history with Islam and we share common social beliefs. I'm fine being under that than being told I should accept same-sex marriage and liberal ideas, otherwise I'm some kind of backwards wingnut. These are beliefs I do not hold, and I don't like living in a society that accepts it, just like I wouldn't like living in a place where communism was the law of the land.

    I speak from my Eastern Orthodox perspective, the one that rejects many things American Protestantism (and even Catholicism) tries to push. Sorry if my Christianity isn't what your liberal interpretation says it should be. What you see as "Pharisee corruption" I see as honing in a sense of morality that should be retained. I don't condemn sinners and those who do evil things, but I will surely tell them they need to stop doing it. St. Paul did what I believe was necessary, when you reject what he did for the church you get things like Anglicanism, which allows homosexuals to become bishops. Now I'm sure most Catholic priests are gay simply based on how many of them are caught doing so, but in Orthodoxy we don't tolerate it.

    All of my ideas are just things I believe and would prefer, I'm not looking to install policy on how to do all this stuff. And I think this thread should be moved back onto topic, it's gone off into quite the territory.

    Slavery and genocide of native peoples is not exclusive to the West, neither is colonialism.

    If you would want an ideal, multi-racial society that even I would agree is good, you're gonna have to do away with the idea that all cultures are equal. Having one unified culture, (most preferably) one unified faith among the people would be good if you want to keep social cohesion together. In the southwestern United States you have problems of communities ostracizing people for not speaking Spanish, despite them living in a country where English is clearly the most dominant language of the nation. Same with people from the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). If they were to come to my country to settle, then alright. I would obviously much prefer Christian migrants from lands like Lebanon, Egypt and Syria, but for Islam I wouldn't be so fine with it. But both groups would still have to learn the language of the host nation and live within our system of law. As far as religion goes, I think liberalism and secularism have done a lot of harm by trying to allow a free-for-all in these nations and not installing a real sense of morality. I'm not for abortion, pornography, same-sex marriage or the promotion of sex just being something done for carnal pleasure. We've lost our way and now a lot of the (in my opinion) civilized world laughs at the West for allowing this kind of behavior to continue. If given the choice between an Islamic state that outlawed these things, vs. the liberal Western countries that allow them, I think I'd rather live under almighty Shariah. Funny enough, if that multi-racial society excludes whites because they don't want to adopt traditional Western values and despise religion, then I guess they can't come.
