    ... well, except for the guy who lost $50K.
    Clearly there is some kind of conspiracy afoot.

    Also, there’s this clue:

    Oh well, at least we have you back, cafe.

    He hid it well enough. I guess he just got careless.

    No. It really couldn't. It's there in black and white and red all over.

    Those of us who knew more of him than his forum persona, don't have to speculate.

    This the first time I'm even slightly sad about a banning

    I actually liked MacGuffin. I rather enjoyed his conversation and sense of humour. Sure, he sometimes came very close to the line, and occasionally crossed it - but for some reason he didn't seem anywhere near as obnoxious to me as others that do the same.

    Not that I doubt your judgement, Haight. I'm sure you did what you had to.

    they've gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the colour of my mind.

    Yes, "Look at this pretty little site I've made for all you NF'ers. It is a land dripping with milk and honey, with fruit on the vine and grass underfoot and pretty bunnies frolicking in the clover and unicorns in the sky... and better yet, if you're over there you won't be trying to get squatter's rights on INTPc. So go! Be happy! Be free!"

    Of course, it was called MBTIc at the time. Blast from the Past.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Haha, I just restrained myself A LOT from answering, but you've said it thru the flowers. All my very blunt german answers would have prolly earned me the next ban

    I suppose this thread is Haight's way of showing how much he enjoys playing Alan Greenspan.
