    Default Irish Oppression In The Backroom

    Well it finally happened. I knew great-great-great-grandads membership in the know-nothings would come back to bite me.

    The two most active moderators here are both Irish.

    As Good Anglos we must over throw the yoke of paddy oppression (My family left in 1620 but I still count!)

    I just noticed this now. I still though Seamus was in the Gameroom.
    There, but for the grace of God, goes John Bradford

    My aim, then, was to whip the rebels, to humble their pride, to follow them to their inmost recesses, and make them fear and dread us. Fear is the beginning of wisdom.

    I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation.

    Sorry, no help here. Most of my ancestors are from the continent.


    Reinvent the British and you get a global finance center, edible food and better service. Reinvent the French and you may just get more Germans.

    TBH I hate the lot of you. My relatives fought with you once and against you twice. I figured we could put aside our differences for the Irish but I'm perfectly willing to go back to me being the hyper-power and yall following orders.

    Besides you spell wrong and your tea is horrid.

    What's with the "anglo" business, Strike? I know you mean it in the national origin, not the racial sense, but seriously, wouldn't where your 5th generation ancestors started their great journey to the promised land be pretty far down the list of your personal sorting algorithm?

    I've got little to no discrimination in me. I don't discriminate on gender, political viewpoint, race, creed, religion, sexuality, national origin, even what pet you prefer to keep. There's room for everyone in the great human experience. . Except Yankee fans.

    Im just busting balls. I'm simply say Anglo because I really have no idea what exact % of anything I have after 400 years of killing Mexicans and keeping the black man down.

    Mind you this is just my mothers side. My fathers side is very easy to track

    Also I'm very much an American but I'm just having fun.

    I'm sorry Strike, I was just pickin'. I know you're no WASP nativist. Hell, I think you're more of a guinea than I am. It's just a pet project I have... making my American friends stop saying they're Italian, Irish, English, African, whatever the hell they claim to be. I'm more of the soup versus salad guy when it comes to integration. Besides, we're all Americans. That alone gives us bragging rights all these Brits, Canucks, Dutchies and everyone else just sit around and turn green wishing to be.

    One of my great-grandfathers grew up in Cork. They're just continuing the tradition, I figger.

    As to oppression: (and I know this is intended as a teasing thread) you won't find anywhere on the 'net - no exaggeration: nowhere - where posts and threads get more respect, benefit-of-a-doubt in favor of the poster, assumption of good intention despite suspected evil or previous 'bad' behavior, or anguished analysis, than this place, this backroom.

    When I moderated here, I had to ask TosaInu for extra PM space, just to keep up with the PM discussions among my co-Mods about: this post, that post, this poster, that poster - let alone the PM's to and from individual posters, cussing and discussing their choice of words, or heated points-of-view. Not dozens, or hundreds... thousands of PMs per month. If any poster here thought or thinks that no one is paying attentiion to them, believe me: at least 4 people did. I used to spend 50% of my org-time in my PM in/out box.

    Again: I know this thread was a "j/k" thingee. I just thought it presented an opportune 'training opportunity', as we used to call a lull in the action in the army.

    Well Strike, we Irish are known for being labourers, hard-working and cheap. Tosa-sama's favourite attributes for his staff.

    Anyway, by your apparent reckoning of pedigree, it's even worse - your destiny here is in the hands of the French.

    Can't speak for Kukri-sama, but my PM box gets so full so fast that massive, blind, panicked deleting is the only answer. You would be astonished at how much PM back-and-forth a single no-point warning can generate. It's absurd, really.

    I take my warnings like a man. I throw stuff about, kick the cat, shout and swear at the monitor, think dark thoughts about the mod, crack open the beer and drink it down in one, rant and rave to the wife about lifes inequalities, kick the cat again and light a spliff.

    Just thought I'd share that with you all.
    There are times I wish they’d just ban everything- baccy and beer, burgers and bangers, and all the rest- once and for all. Instead, they creep forward one apparently tiny step at a time. It’s like being executed with a bacon slicer.

    “Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it whether it exists or not, diagnosing it incorrectly, and applying the wrong remedy.”

    To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticise.

    I do the same, except I throw a spliff around, kick some stuff, shout and swear at the cat, think dark thoughts about the monitor, crack open the mod and drink it down in one, rant and rave to the beer about life's inequalities, kick the wife again, and light the cat.

    Well, not like I've gotten many but when I do I think I can at least apologize for my bad behaviour, unless you guys think that's just PM spam.
