Anatomist,

You may see it as me continuing to complain, I see it as defending myself against your attacks.

In fact I have done everything you suggested with the exception of the personal contacts. I have basicly let it the fuck go with the exception of trying to clear up the fact that I"m not bitching about the forum. You continue to twist my words around without giving any example of my supposed ingratutide toward Kallisti or the forum.

Marc,
I have time and again said that I support Kallisti's decision to do what ever she wants. I respect her and the rest of the people here to do what they want.
The site you mention is run my some members of my family.
They try to encourage adults as well as kids to write and submit their work to the site, so it's obvious that X-rated work would conflict with that partiular goal.

Everyone has the right to censor themselves or their works. I support Kallisti's right to do what she wants here. I agree that what she did was the smart thing to do. I also believe that she did what she did because of fear that she or members of this forum would be harassed or worse by the government, and I believe that sucks.

As Forrest Gump said, "And that's all I have to say about that."

I support her decision too, its not censorship, its common sense.

FWIW, I'm 100% in support of Kallisti's decision. A friend of hers (identity unknown to me) was endangered, and she did the things it was in her power to do, to ensure it doesn't happen to anybody else. For this she should get nothing but gratitude.

I find it interesting that mogan david pisses and moans about censorship when the online magazine he is associated with will not publish anything they deem pornographic.

MD,

You continued to complain about censorship. Kallisti is doing the censorship, not the government. Therefore, prevarication notwithstanding, you are complaining about her, not the government. BTW, that's censorship with a small 'c' - this is essentially a private publication, and no one has any 'right' to be published here. The fact that you're complaining about not being able to talk about making your own here, and the level of understanding implied by the substance of your complaints is ample evidence that you are merely a lazy idler and dilettante.

If you were serious about it, first of all you'd respect and understand the outlaw's code: if you want to operate outside the law, don't advertise, wear neon signs, or otherwise needlessly draw attention to yourself. If you were actually considering building a lab in your house, you wouldn't be whining about the unfairness of the government in public view, and you'd appreciate Kallisti's new rule, not resent it. A serious outlaw is interested in action, not armchair political speeches.

Second, you'd be willing to do some actual research, including making personal contacts, and, oh, say, even searching through the freaking forum archives. If you had already undertaken even modest initiative towards self-education, it would be evident in your comments.

Call me what you want, you're a rude guest making a pointless mess.

Depends on the opera, Tort! What if it were . . . um . . . well, I've made my point, anyway.

It's more like a B movie to me, anyway . . . "Attack of the Killer Jackasses," maybe?

My, I must say that between the ATF, under age girls pimping homemade porno, and the fights, this is quite an exciting place. Better than a night at the opera!

"Yeah, those laws prohibiting bootlegging are a real drag. I think the cane sugar tariffs are a bummer too... So what? Your flip-floppery fools no one"

Flip-floppery? Just when exactly do you think I said or implied anything other than what a shame it is that fear has stifled conversation?

In making absinthe the idea is to extract essential oils from the herbs involved. I have no interest in making my alcohol, and would be very happy to start with something like everclear for the base of the drink.

Now since all alcohol taxes have already been paid to the state, how is that like bootlegging. The only similarity is that the process requires distillation.

There are tons of threads here where people gripe about injustice and unfairness of our government. You choose to fuck with me because I state my opinion of this particular law and the way the ATF uses scare tactics to censor conversation.

The gripe is legitimate, on topic and involves absinthe.

Again, I must reiterate, you are acting like a huge prick. Have you ever tried Prozac? You never know it might help your condition.

If someone wanted to start a hogsmack forum, more power to them. I'm sure it would be useful, if people were inclined to use it.

Go and register hogsmack.com. Go nuts. And when you're done, let us know.

"I have a breakthrough, incredible Absinth recipe, which comes from a chemist I know at Mattel Toys (yes..Mattel Toys.) that I wanted to share w/ you all."

Cool. I have an incredible set of directions for how to sing the arias from The Magic Flute. Doesn't mean anyone here is actually planning on singing such, or that anyone here could do it worth a shit, either.


"I was just saying it sucks that you were forced to make that decision. I agree that you did the right thing."

Yeah, those laws prohibiting bootlegging are a real drag. I think the cane sugar tariffs are a bummer too... So what? Your flip-floppery fools no one.

Kallisti,
"I feel a very deep and sincere responsibility to those here who have become my nearest & dearest over the past 4+ years. THAT ALONE is enough to justify this decision. "

I was just saying it sucks that you were forced to make that decision. I agree that you did the right thing.

and I'm sick of all the whiners who cry "censorship" everytime they're told they shouldn't scratch their nuts in public.

oh yeah, this ain't public. this is a private forum.

whatever, you're lamenting something that never was discussed here at any length at any given time, for a number of reasons. Now we just have one more reeeeal good reason not to bring the topic up.

Correction,

1. I do greatly respect Kallisti, and would never go against her rules.

2. I do belive that this is somehow censorship.

3. No big f-ing deal! I understand now that shit went down with the ATF and one of us. I'm new here, and did not know that.

4. I have a breakthrough, incredible Absinth recipe, which comes from a chemist I know at Mattel Toys (yes..Mattel Toys.) that I wanted to share w/ you all. This is why I have an invested interest in this topic, and Anatomist, no you are quite wrong when you say "Of course, the worst part is neither of you gives a rat's ass about making your own absinthe, and you just want to bitch to hear your own voices and squeeze your own over-civilized nads to see if there's any juice left in them."

I'm a good guy, trying to spread good spirit, that's all.

Fuck you.

I feel a very deep and sincere responsibility to those here who have become my nearest & dearest over the past 4+ years. THAT ALONE is enough to justify this decision. If it meant deleting the archives, I'd do it. We're talkin' the ruining of people's lives who may not want that kind of martyrdom.

And thank you Anatomist ... I'm right there with ya.

Anatomist,

You should really try to get your money back from the people at the anger management class, because they obviously aren't working.

I don't know why you suddenly decided to act like such a prick but I wasn't coming down on Kallisti. I totally support her right to run her forum any way she wants. If it bothers me a little that decisions are made because of fear of government reprisals, I have the right to state my opinion.

I personally don't give a rat's ass if that pisses you off.
