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:

My name is Kristian Lund, I live in Århus, Denmark. Dune was the first 'literature' I read and part of the reason I now study philosophy.

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??)

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.

(Side note, SC is the above a true sentence ala Jesus wept.)

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
