  • merk666 is a fellow poet, I can't deny my respect and admiration. Circumstances beyond our reach just happen to place him on the Death Star and by pure genetic happenstance, I'm a 15th generation Danish Jedi. We're not good or evil(well we are), faith simply had it, that our forefathers chose paths, that led us down different axes of good and evil. merk666 knows this is not personal, we share a mutual respect and fondness for the poetic absurdity of life. Who knows, if things and events had been slightly different, merk666 could easily have become a Scandinavian beacon of light and I know for certain, I would have made an outstanding Comrade and embraced the darkness that lies dormant in the heart of man.

    Also Happy New Year everybody!

        • The whole troll story is a one-sided view on things. To basically any topic you'll find people trying to push their agenda by any means necessary - as seen in this and other threads by the two posters above me. Only if you look at things selectively, you could ever come to the conclusion that fake news, memes and social media trolling are used exclusively by Russia or favor Russia only in contrary to the reality - namely that this is just how the internet is these days for everyone and everything.
          So big fat MEH at those stories.

                And you keep bringing it up on this forum; one has to wonder what your agenda is.
