I just wanted to poke my head in the door, say hi, and see if any of the old folks are still around. I can't remember the last time I was here, and that may be for the best since I seem to recall I was kind of (very much) an asshole in the good old days.

Well, how's things, guys?

Good to see you too! I'm okay, just taking things a day at a time. I still compose music, although what I've been doing the past few years is quite different to anything I used to share here back in the day. I also compose soundtracks for games at my friend's development studio.

How's things with you?

Much the same, still accidentally hurting myself on a regular basis...

Oof, that's not so great. But you're keeping up with the drawing and stuff?

Jeez. That's a real epilogue slide montage of people I suspect may not exist right there. Much appreciated.

What about baddy, or feets, or MGG? Slime? BTM? There are names I'm forgetting, like the one guy who use to announce himself as being from "Cincinasty. NOhio". Hell, what about Cleon? What even, dare I ask, about Trendmonger?

Trendy's not here as far as I know, JayPFunk got banned and we suspect he's now back to his usual trolling, and there's a new troll who you've met already.
MGG's still a regular and most of the others still pop in.

I try to draw, at the moment I have two pupils: my BF's nieces. Cute.

That's good, I guess. Never thought I'd hear about someone getting banned on the Zappa forums, though.

Yeah he was rude to admin. Guess all the racist remarks he was making was okay, as long as you don't upset the management...

I remember him being very right wing and very loud about it for sure, not racist necessarily, but I guess crime statistics by race are a popular thing for right wingers to hold up in response to BLM now, so it makes sense. Personally I don't think racism or anything like that should be cause for banning, as long as it's on a forum it's just an idea, and an idea that cannot be expressed is an idea that cannot be challenged. Obviously, free speech protections in law don't cover forums, but I think as a principle it's a better idea to discuss stuff like that than it is to shut it down by force, and I've always kind of appreciated this forum's laissez faire approach to what people can and cannot say. Of course, arguments only tend to make people more entrenched, so maybe there is no good approach to dealing with that kind of stuff.

The thing is most sites are on a service provider. If a user here calls for, say, murder of all the blacks, it's not just the site but also the provider that can be held responsible, and a provider can demand the site to remove such content.
Also there are laws against discrimination, and as you can tell from recent Facebook verdicts, social media are being held responsible for the outings of its users.

'Course there's more chance such a thing happens when you upload illegal movies.

You're not a fully vested troll until you've been on the forum for five full years. It's similar to the partial/full-on Zappa fan delineation noted in the Z-Forum Rules, Section 5.2.

Mr. Crudblud - Welcome back! I remember your name but I don't think we ever really interacted much. Lapsed maps is ok. He's just one of those people that you either really hate or a, yeah. So, welcome back!

Thanks! Not interacting with angry teenage me is probably a good thing, to be honest.

The political situation is dire, but you know, what else is new? I'm doing okay in my part of the country, at the very least, but the north tends to be quieter in general. How are you doing?

I ask myself the same thing on a regular basis. I remember you if that's any consolation.

Brazil is, indeed, in dire political situation. Since last election, the loosing party has done everything to destabilize the country political scene, pushing for a Venezuela-like scenario, which led to a white coup (the parliment overthrew the elected president, without a responsability crime) and opened way for the non-elected platform to take over. We are facing the growth of an army of more than 14 mi unemployed, loss of purchase power, increase in crime rates and everything that comes along with an economical crisis. The person in office is a known criminal, but still the (mostly) criminal house of representatives won't do shit.

I, personally (other than that), can't complain, though. I am employed, trying to produce science and raising a beautiful girl. :mrgreen:
