Re: I do have sympathy for the lgbt when it comes to asexuals

Haha August 2010 isn't "before your time": I know, because we've been squabbling about this very issue longer than that. It was arguments with you and a few other people that caused me to put together that document linked above, which we handed out at London Pride in July 2010 for the firs...

Re: Remind me Never EVER look at AVEN again!

I think I only changed it once ever and I changed it back within minutes. I don't do Halloween either. :-p

I also find the name changes confusing. Another possibility would be to ask that they put their original name in their sig, possibly spoilered.

Re: I do have sympathy for the lgbt when it comes to asexuals

I'm not inclined to rehash the LGBTQ+ argument yet again - as far as I can tell, what I wrote (originally) 5 years ago in this document still more or less applies with minor modifications or updates - but on a purely factual point: in every poll within aven when asked one defining question...should ...

Re: American gun control

Look at Britain. Here, outside of gun clubs, ownership of handguns is almost impossible, ownership of automatic weapons illegal, yet shootings are an almost daily event. In the UK, deaths by firearms are about 0.25 per year per 100,000 population. In the USA that figure is more like 10. That's a 40...

Re: Apositive chat room?

As I said, I don't believe the chat would need to be moderated.

I wasn't really intending it to be linked from anywhere ...

And its location - near Waterloo - allows us to do stuff during the day without much travelling. Plus this year it's the 800th ...

Re: This has to be a wind up?

There is practically zero chance the vid is meant seriously. My surprise wasn't that the comments were less than polite (that's regrettably expected) but that they were unable to recognise such an obvious joke.

Ah seems I'm overestimating people. Looking at the comments, quite incredibly most of them do not realise this is a joke, even though it should be blindingly obvious.

Re: Asexuality as bullies

The fact you count 5'11" as "quite short" suggests your calibration is a little off. Actually I was by far the shortest in my year of 120, for a few years, and then caught up somewhat and ended up slightly above average height for a UK male of my age group. The tallest ace I've come a...

Yes it obviously is a wind up. That was obvious even before she got to the Jupiter bit. I suppose they had to tack on the Jupiter part to make it really really really obvious as way too many people don't get irony[1], which is why it's sadly customary to pepper internet postings with smilies and oth...

Re: Remind me Never EVER look at AVEN again!

We (AVEN staff members) are not supposed to endorse candidates. That's never been an official rule mind, but it's a well established convention.

That being said, it's ok to say someone would make a great mod, as long as the context doesn't make it look like an endorsement over the other candidates.

Well known fake quote, SD. DJ's response in full (13 March 2012). I’v been getting a bunch of e-mail recently about a quote that was attributed to me on Tumblr.
