    If this happened a couple of years ago I would have been chuffed...Kazaa these days is just full of Trojans bots and other nasties and as annoying as popups...Limewire for Mac the way to go.

    What the hell?
    All i was saying is that seeing as communism has come up in this thread already, and then we have a German guy posting about racism just seems a little amusing.

    You want to take this outside?

    He wasn't comparing it to a desert or Afghan. He worded it badly i agree, but when i read it i kind of understood. Don't read so much into it.

    As for the German thing, the way he spoke about hating everyone equally made a link to Nazis.....

    to be honest, you're a little over sensitive.

    I wasnt referring to archimage's comment. In fact, I found it funny. I was referring to you, otherwise I wouldnt have mentioned it. There are limits to humour, its just like telling a jewish guy an oven joke. It's not funny, you just look like an ignorant fool.

    Okay, I'd like to start off by apologising to _xell & fospher as they seem to have got worked up as a result of a Quip originally posted by me. "I appologise unreservedly" (it worked for the BBC).

    To clear things up, the comment about Racism was refering to my own text where I offered a hypothetical senario where I was a purveyor of Racist/Hate mail and was using an Product provided by a certain company.

    Thats all it was a Hypothetical senario. I thought I'd put it in in case someone spotted the German connection and jumped to the wrong conclusion.(too clever for my own good).

    On the point of Racism in Germany, I suppose it exists like in most countries. The Authorities/Politicians are very wary of anythng that could be misconstrued as racism and there have been cases where a politician has fallen on his sword for seemingly innocuous comments directed unfortuneatly at Jewish/Israeli people. A similar case to England where asking Tony Blair about WMD is not advisable ATM.
    The point being that "The Germans" run around with a collective "Bad Feeling" any time the Second World War or the Holocaust is mentioned.

    I am English, I just live in Germany. I often use my outrageous sence of humour to bring Germans onto subjects which they would never in a million years think of talking about. I imagine the Internet forums are a bad place to convey Humour where a Nod or a "Knowing Wink" cannot be used for emphasis or intonation.

    I also say things like that as I am a diagnosed Claustrophobic, the thought of going places with a throng of people is unsetteling to say the least. Hence my tendance to comments indicating that I am uncomfortable around people. Here comes a Joking comment!!! Relax guys I won't progress to SocioPath for anoth year or two.end of joking comment!!!


    Huge P.S. I don't use Kazaa, if fact downloading music is'nt my bag, I am an Olde Pharte who goes to concerts for music.
