    Atomic M33t X! - 21st August 2010

    In light of recent changes in the community atmosphere, financial and logistic concerns, I am withdrawing my interest. In short, no longer worth my money, time or effort. Have fun.

    For the most part I don't. I'm not a hundred percent sure how asylum-seeking works, but I'm fairly sure a lot of governments where these people come from won't co-operate with their attempts to get Visas. I don't know if they have alternative options to that, or whether it's just a case of set sail and hope for the best. Start reading: http://forums.atomicmpc.com.au/index.php?showtopic=30171 Ah, thanks for that. I thought the UN had a hand in it somehow, but didn't know the specifics.

    The posts are there, I linked to them. You said those things, and said them in the context of the argument as stated in the thread topic. I'm not going to explain it to you again. If you insist on being obstinate and insisting that I said things that all comprehensive evidence shows I did not, with absolutely no evidence to back that claim up other than reciting the same old tired, debunked trite comments over and over again then go and live in your little fairy world and let the big boys have their conversation.

    Save what's left of your dignity and do it. I mean, come on, Rybags, you don't even know what the fuck you're accusing me of. You've lost. Put yourself out of your misery. I've lost? No. You've lost ages back. And now resorting to denying the opinions you've posted and/or agreed with, and generally tried to throw the thread way off topic. Why don't you go back and start your desalination tangent again... you were going alright there for a while. At least I still know what I'm arguing over.

    Now you're just trolling. Plenty of people hold similar views to those expressed by the "Anti" in this thread. They just don't want to put up with your blanket labelling of being racist or bogan. What are you on about? This has nothing to do with anti or pro! Stop embarrassing yourself by trying to make up swerve after swerve and lie after lie and just admit that you were talking out of your arse accusing me of saying things I did not.

    You of all people speak for everyone? Damn right I do. But hey, I'm a fair man. I'll let people have there say. Anybody here agree with Rybags? I'm fairly sure Logic and the Frat Pack are going to put their hands up by default, but is there anybody else? I'm open to criticism. Anybody believe I typecasted Australians? C'mon, don't be shy.

    Short memory, hey? Like I said, you're not necessarily making all the slag-off remarks about Australians, but are pretty quick to jump up, quote and agree. All in this thread, so it's not like I had to dig through much: http://forums.atomicmpc.com.au/index.php?s...st&p=670364 * http://forums.atomicmpc.com.au/index.php?s...st&p=670388 http://forums.atomicmpc.com.au/index.php?s...st&p=670402 * = you've quoted and agreed in that post. The other two, you've produced an original insult against Australians. Maybe you should do some research on things you've said yourself, before denying it in the same breath as accusing others of making so-called baseless assumptions. Again, I'd like to see where I accused Australians as a people of being bogans. Or insulted Australians as a people. Did I say there were bogans here? Yes. Did I say Australians were bogans? No. If anybody's hinting that bogans and Australians are one and the same, it is you, and I as an Australian citizen take that as a personal affront. Give up, Rybags. Nobody agrees with you but Logic - and I dare say that hurts your cause more than it helps it.

    OK. First of all, I have not seen a single post here accusing Australians in general of being bogans. The only person to make that connection is yourself. Secondly, you have this problem of typecasting anyone with beliefs contrary to your own. You do it constantly. Anyone disagrees with you, they're obviously PC, do-gooders, blah blah. It's a lame substitute for critical thought and we're over it. Thirdly it is painfully obvious you're clutching at straws. First I supposedly talked smack about Australians. Now that you have failed miserably to back that up you're making up some crap about a sentiment I agree with. Next you'll probably use who I voted for as evidence. You're fooling nobody. I'd advise you to either admit you're mistaken or slink off quietly, because I have no qualms shooting down anything you make up.

    I haven't 'personally attacked' anyone. Have I called you anything? No. I've absolutely obliterated your outright ludicrous claims and mis-quotes, yes, but that's different and you know it. If I am being curt with you, it's because quite frankly I am sick of your poorly-thought out crap. I can tolerate you whinging about Rudd every second day, but when you try your typecasting crap with me and lie your arse off, it's not going to fly. Now show me a quote, or sit down and stop spouting garbage.

    You said that, no? And, such "bludger" issues have been gone over in the past. I can remember seeing ABS figures that had the modern day refugees at 3 times the average Unemployment Rate, and another 18% or so of them on Disability. So, wait. Me saying that productive workers are more valuable than lazy bludgers of any nationality somehow equates to me 'having the hide to say that a bunch of walk-ins that possibly have never seen a modern brick-veneer house, let alone built something resembling one, can just produce some Snowy Mountain Scheme style big new piece of infrastructure more quickly than the natives here'? I understand you're all chest-beating Captain Australia I Love A Sunburned Country I Miss John Howard And Will Bitch About It Every Second Of Every Day but FFS, use your brain, get over the ignorant typecasting and read instead of making a jackass out of yourself. Fuck.

    Heh, you don't have to convince me on that front. I don't mind migrant workers, certainly beats migrant (or native-born) bludgers. Once that problem is solved, we can then operate under the condition of having a near-limitless water supply. Where do you get off perpetuating this bullshit? Australia is walking all over most of the other developed economies right now. Our Unemployment is lower than practically all of them, and Australians on average work more hours a week than most. Then you have the hide to say that a bunch of walk-ins that possibly have never seen a modern brick-veneer house, let alone built something resembling one, can just produce some Snowy Mountain Scheme style big new piece of infrastructure more quickly than the natives here. Uh... read the posts before losing your shit, homie. rhodarius is saying all that stuff, not me - if you'd actually read any of what I posted, I'm merely following his line of thought.

    Baldur's Gate 2?

    Honestly? The entire trilogy is still worth $40 based on the adventure alone.
