Quote from: UlrichMessage to anyone reading this:feel free to post your theories!But be
prepared for 2 things:1)not everyone will agree 2)someone might question your
theory,especially if not well thought out or underlined by quotes of lyrics or anything
to do with reality.
First of all:I won't continue a heated debate.The above mentioned notice occupied
me for a while.These measures may appear understandable to keep away a 'potential
nutcase',but new members or those with good intentions could be confused,if not deterred.
Nobody wants to be hit over the head with own triple quotes,for example,if every member
has the possibility to delete a post,even after weeks.A bit more forbearance would be great,wouldn't it?
Il y a, en Russie, une unité d'aspiration sans ana-
logue en Europe, cette force invincible du peuple
jeune, en croissance, qui lui assure la prochaine
hégémonie: mais le caractère russe, plus ingénu
qu'aucun autre, n'a point de défense contre les poi-
sons de la philosophie allemande. (J. Péladan)

Why?

There are no "measures" at all, it was just a "message" to people who might read that topic and think that posting a theory might be difficult!
(Taking it out of context into here, is not a good idea in my opinion!)

The quote function is used to make clear what one refers to. I didn't know we could delete/change post for weeks, if that is fact, then it is even more useful to quote!

I'm just a fan from Holland who's waiting when they come to Europe for a tour..

Welcome, janet! This is a theory most of us can agree with (I guess, especially those from Europe)!  :)
