So it's not meant to be ironic or anything like that, you're literally proud of being a holocaust denier?

I'd say he'll admit to whatever's expedient in generating the most drama and lulz; that's clearly why he's here. I'm not stirring trouble here, I'm just stating the obvious mellow.gif

I never lie, it's an Aspie thing.

At the time it was the lulz, the neo-nazi bit came from Black's Jewish chip on the shoulder.

Before making any more accusations, people should read the WP article talkpage, or wherever the hell I left my comments, I don't recall exactly where.

99% of the time, no. Seriousness is far too bad for my blood pressure, as the WR 3.0 thread is proving to be.

Anyway, I thought you'd buggered off, or is it your turn to troll?

I'm five years here on WR, long before it was fashionable for the "other side" to hang out here. I'm just finding it hard to let go ... same with WP bored.gif

Shouldn't that be a capital G?

I don't know about you, but I've never met a Jew who didn't have one, and I've met an awful lot of Jews.

I also don't worry about being politically correct about religion.

Personally I think anyone who belongs to any religion needs their fucking heads examining.

I'm not religious... You should be able to figure that out not least from my posting if not userpage tongue.gif

But the issue with jewish people is it's mixed up by them being a race too, so genericising an entire race etc.. is well... Racism.

But that's a distraction as well, because the point is why you were trying to cover up IBM's role in knowingly supplying computers for the holocaust death camps, as well as denying that it happened? That very much makes it seem like it wasn't "just lulz" as you seem to be trying to make out...

I didn't say you were, or that you needed your head examining (well not for religion anyway).

No it isn't, and I do wish people, you included, knew the difference between racism and stereotyping.

If you'd read it and didn't just take Black's word for it. I was copyediting the article and Black was insisting on putting his own books in as reliable sources. Blaxthos and I stopped him because at that point there was nothing to show that his book was notable, not to mention the fact that there was CoI.

War history is not my strong point and I had no idea that IBM did what they did, and I'm still not convinced that things are as black and white as Black says (pardon the pun).

So no I'm not a Holocaust denier, but I am an Edwin Black denier, I denied him his chance at free advertising, and we all know how the Jews freak if they're held back from something free!

Imagine that, the Holocaust denier needs remediation concerning racism.
