    I'm glad my futile scuffles with TAZ at least provided some amusement.

    They did get me thrown out of the place in quite a hurry, though. Maybe I did not take his personal attacks sufficiently meekly for Byrons taste?


    Going for ban #2, huh? :lol:

    Anything else, don't hesitate to ask...


    Welcome Lundse!! I still have a copy of your "great debate" with the Almighty Zeus (aka TAZ). I too am a fan of your TAZ beatdowns!!

    (shall we repost them here somewhere??)

    All right reversed and all that jazz - as long as noone messes with the attribution, feel free.

    Who is this "Taz" ... and why does he seem to inspire violence upon his person? :)

    Someone else should field this one...for balance's sake. :)

    The Almighty Zeus.

    He was apparently King Preek over on DN(and wiki, I guess?) back before I joined up over there(so, a long time ago, probably back when the Legends books were still being written/published). Apparently, there were epic debates between TaZ and SC, Freak, TMB, and maybe some others? I don't know the exact list, but some of the core OH faction.

    TaZ is what I like to call "the great justifier." It seemed he would stretch logic far beyond the breaking point it justify ANYTHING from the prequel novels...

    He's also a KJA fanboy and apparently does alot of those blinky graphics you'll find on KJA's MySpace. SOME suspect TaZ even meets up with KJA for lunches, or something like that.

    I think in the old days he would have been introduced as a nephew or something.

    Is it a true sentence?

    Well...that would depend on its truth conditions, no? Shall we engage in a model theoretic semantic analysis? (NO!!!)

    Or do you mean, is it a real sentence, acceptable as a complete sentence?

    Sure, why not? In context. ;)

    It contains an ellipsis (objective noun phrase or infinitival phrase complement) in a way that "Jesus wept" does not, of course.

    Blah blah blah...I could go on and on! :D
