You guys have your place to spout your anti-american stuff and we have our place to spout anti-euro stuff. Probably for the best, I don't see why your so bitter about it.

Just had a quick look and I don't want to hear it. I can't read without responding 'cause it makes me too mad so it's best I leave them to it.

BTW that burn them comment is the kind of stuff that people were complaining about in that closed thread, it's a bit hypocritical of you to close that thread and then do it yourself. Mr Matthew "the management" Higgs.

America could learn something from Old Europe. If they want to brutally invade a country they could ask countries that have actually been invaded.

Did that spark anything? Closing this thread?

Higgsy sounds bitter and maroule seems like he's sad he can't fight Chris anymore. I would think this would please several of the posters here. Not having the bloody Americans around.

I hope it does solve problems. I for one know that I won't post in any political thread here. I won't add any fuel to the fire. When I feel like venting I'll go to FFZ and vent.

Hopefully we'll still be able to post about all the "fun" shit we used to.

It's in the perception, funko. When people talk trash about europe, we shrug. When people talk trash about the US, (some) americans are insulted. When you know that it would be the polite thing to be considerate.

Saying hey, we are not insulted when we are attacked, doesn't work. Rather etno-centric to push your own values onto other cultures.

Nahh. It's more like it's always cool to crap about the US because they are top dog. But if we fight back, we are arrogant bastards. Love it when Euros come to our country and lecture us in our homes about what our country should be doing. I wouldn't dream of that in Europe.

But it's sorta like that tall guy in second grade. It is always ok to start fights with him since he is all tall and stuff.

Bitter? Hmm maybe. Though more let down that regular Counterglow posters just upped ship and left, people that I thought were better than that. So some people have different opinions to you, welcom to the real world.

What if you found out a long time old friend had a different opinion and he though the war on Iraq was wrong. Would you just severe all ties. No friendship means more than that, that is what I can't understand. You've all known people like Funko for years but you just up and leave like that.

If that wasn't bad enough then the threads that have been posted at your new Utopia are just fucking disgusting, apart from the babe threads that is. It gets me so fucking angry just reading them. I can't even be arsed carrying on this 'discussion' you are a bunch of pricks the lot of you just carry on posting your bigoted shit without anyone to challenge your opinions.

well, not really, I do like heated political discussions, but I didn't really enjoy his straw man arguments (hence my sig) and got bored into repeating I did not mean/think/said what he reproached me.

I have also realised that, while nothing written here could piss me off, others were more sensitive, so I've been refraining from entering in any mined field for some time now.

Well first of all Higgsy, I never left but that's nit picking. But there was obviously a massive difference of opinion going on here. So people left. I think that's rather respectful to leave. Instead of continuing fighting and arguing here and turning this place into Poly wannabe site, people left. Now everyone has a place to vent hopefully we'll be able to come back together someday when feelings are released and tensions eased. I'm guessing no based on your reply.

And as for the friends thing, I don't think that anyone who left felt like anyone here was their friend. You start to feel that way after a lot of crap gets piled up on you and your beliefs. And I know there are a lot of people here who are happy that some people have left. For me it's easy to stay because I'm used to being disliked and hated and made fun. Other people can't handle it all day every day, hell even I can't sometimes.
