Knew I'd heard this title somewhere. Waylon Jennings.

Yes. I had trouble coming up with a title and didn't want something like "New here" or "Hello" or something boring like that.

"The Three Stooges"; Yes! The only reason that they didn't receive many "OSCARS" has to be attributed to envy.
"The Lord of the Rings"; Yes! Read those when I was in High School; been searching for the same book reading "high" ever since.

"My brothers, all of you, if you are condemned to see the triumph of evil, never applaud it. Never say to evil: you are good; to decadence: you are progess; to death: you are life. Sanctify yourselves in the times wherein God has placed you; bewail the evils and the disorders which God tolerates; oppose them with the energy of your works and your efforts, your life uncontaminated by error, free from being led astray, in such a way that having lived here below, united with the Spirit of the Lord, you will be admitted to be made but one with Him forever and ever: But he who is joined to the Lord is one in spirit." Cardinal Pie of Potiers

These days, I'd say getting the accolades of respectable fans is far more significant than getting recognition from the corrupt film industry. Although, back then, it would have had a veneer of respectability.

Thanks. I think I remember you. If I am correct, you helped me once and had a relative (child?) also on the forum. I forget names.

I hope to be a breath of fresh air, at least, to a musty odour that revealed itself in the reaches of the forum.

I am doing well. I am still me, but my situation is a lot less stressful and far more stable. Overall, I am doing better than the last time I was on forums.

I forgot to post in here earlier, but welcome.  It's good to have you around again.  Maybe I'll pop into chat sometime soon if I get a chance.
The royal feast was done; the King
Sought some new sport to banish care,
And to his jester cried: "Sir Fool,
Kneel now, and make for us a prayer!"

The jester doffed his cap and bells,
And stood the mocking court before;
They could not see the bitter smile
Behind the painted grin he wore.

He bowed his head, and bent his knee
Upon the Monarch's silken stool;
His pleading voice arose: "O Lord,
Be merciful to me, a fool!"

Thanks. I'm in chat now (if you or anybody reading this wants to join). It is very nice in there.

Thanks. It is great to see familiar names.

If you go into chat again, let me know so I can give you voice. I think you might have popped in once a while back.

You lift bro? What about pants on women? On or off? Placentas?

I used to lift, but now I do something else. I look like I lift though.

...

I used to have a placenta, but I don't remember it. Apparently, we were quite inseparable when I was a baby.

Welcome, Insanis!

Thanks. I aim to amuse (in these sorts of situations). A few minutes ago, you had exactly 598 posts and 598 thanks, but you ruined it. It was on the what are you reading thread, but I saw it and it was cool.

The lifting phrase was true. I look like I lift, although I haven't actually lifted a barbell in quite some time. I maintain/build strength in other ways.

(Also, the double meaning of the placenta line is funny to me, but the other meaning is serious. My umbilical cord was too short.)

I think I am going to leave this forum while the problems remain.

It is beginning to affect my perception. I cannot sustain this and nothing is being done about it, despite so many reports and messages. I dealt with CP spam in the IRC chat, but I never wanted to be op or owner and offered to hand it over. It is more responsibility than I wanted. I have a limit to what I can accept and I do not want to have to constantly resist. It is too much here.

If the chat room is constantly being spammed with child porn if it's left by itself then maybe a bunch of us should send KK a PM to have it deleted.  Hardly anyone uses it anyways.

Believe me Insanis this is the best I've seen it in five years, since Gerard started posting that crap.  Other times I'd complain about it and get jumped on by his disciples.  Not this time around.  Between yourself and a few other new members of the forum, plus some regulars we are just not putting up with it anymore.  Some long time members that never used to say anything about it have joined in this time too.  Gerard and Philip have got to be starting to realize that we just don't want the crap around here anymore.

I think the spam was a result of someone monitoring the forum and targeting it.

I use it and I dealt with it, so it didn't actually have spam in it, except for a few seconds before I stopped it. But I could see the attempts (as op).

Thank you. I know their views are highly specific to them and are not Catholic, but their apparent free reign makes it appear it is accepted.

But, it turns out it was just a moderator who was very busy who will deal with it in.
