yeh i read on the other page that that guy got banned. why did he get banned milo? great character buy the way milo...theres always a catch :wink: ...as for the forum, no not much is being said, with no disregard for mithras it is dull,... maybe the guests don't like those strict rules that have been set; noone likes being told what to say or do; but thats just my opinion, and by the looks of things what says goes...
noone is posting anything thats generating an "intellectual disscussion" so until then the chances of it happening are very slim...

umm, Davemustaine was banned because she was randomly insulting people.

I believe she is back though.

And the rules are hardly strict, we just want a friendly enviroment, nothing more, nothing less. I dont see that being too much to ask.

You are well informed Toozey, quite rightly so, Dave Mustaine, just might
well be back, best watch out she might insult you!

Electra i take it your into Greek Tragedy...hmmm the Euripides translation...i prefer the sophecles translation me, the way in which he presents electra is by far more deserving and effective than euripides' he tends to pussy foot around in portraying her character, where sophecles tends to show her in one light only she is a right B**** in sophecles translation...have you read it in Greek? what other Ancient s*** are you into?

(too Electra_in...) finally someone to have an intellectual conversation
with...

Forgive me Toozey, i forgot you were there...

"Randomly insluting people"??? hahaha Why didn't they insult her back??? It seems petty that you band her for that? people like that you just ignore and get on with it. She was proberbly attention seeking, or trying to provoke a reaction just like the one she got! but that seems pretty funny hahahha "Randomly insulting people" hahhaa bet that was real funny.
In addition Toozey i said that that was just my opinion, but take into account if one person feels like that just imagine what the others might be thinking, Whats Your opinion Milo, Authorised and Weasel?

MiloMinderBinder you must know alot about Greek literature. Yes you are right i've quoted from the Euripides Translation, however Milo i beg to differ with you that Sophecles' version deserves the praise that you give it. Euripides was a misogonist, most of his plays were directed at showing women in an evil light, so by this he clearly had the experience to show Electra in the worst possible light ever, he does no favours for Clytemnestra there is no pathos shown for her predicament. By contrast Sophecles translation is by far more weaker, he allows the viewer to feel pity and sadness for Clytemnestra. take Sophecles' translation of Antigone for instance, had Euripides translated that we would have got a version where Antigone would have been portrayed in a more foul light, Sophecles portrays Antigone like Electra in a more of a heroic tragic light!

I read alot of Greek/Roman Epics all the well know accessable ones by Homer and Virgil, I don't understand and dislike the Comedy and have read alot of tragedy. No i haven't read any in Greek, i don't speek the language, i do however know a few sentances in Latin but thats about it.

GOD not greek PLEASE... for the love of satan NO MORE GREEK.

I'm living with 3 greeks (aaaargh) and have been for 2 years. my cockney london accent has totally disappeared and been replaced with this weird GrEnglish accent. I sound like an indian now.....

I just spent 4 months modelling an ancient Greek lost city palace....

There are 7 Greeks in my house right now

My name is Alexander....

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH

NO. MORE. GREEKS

It's quite literally all Greek to me...

:oops: :evil: :shock: :x

hahaha cool! i should have been born a Greek, i love their country, i was thinking of going out their to teach when i finish uni, however i don't mean on the Greek islands but rather the mainland, i dispise the Greek Islands, people their are hostile, and its filled with British Twats and their "cockney accents" :wink: i love their way of life. you must admit that their ancient history is fantastic, the old pagan religion. It was the Greeks who invented democracy...it took the western world another 5 to 6 centuries to catch on, yet in the 21st century, our democracy still isn't as effective or fair as the ancient Greeks was...

Ok am i boring anyone yet...yes think i had better shut the fuck up!

I Think that they call it communism, wanting the forum to say the same old boring things...no wonder why theres no action going on here...inbred...a*** licking want to be's...hey bob your so great...shut people up who have something different to say....but i'll stop there before i get banned...coughagaincough!

In order to understand or even enjoy the comedy you need to know historical, cultural, contextual influences at the time it was written. You usely find that the comedy plays are political satires as well, so it'd be worth noteing that political context is important to know about...
I like alot of the greek/roman myths epic peoms also, i've studied them and they are throughly enjoyable. one of my main hobbies is reading so i read alot when i have the time, and i'm into war literature at the moment.
my classics teacher used to read chunks out to use of the odyssey in Greek, you get a true sense of it actually being an epic peom rather than a narrative, its beautiful! the aeneid also when its read in latin is better than the translations, but they are bound to be...

...Toozey are you keeping up? this s*** is worth knowing, very interesting stuff...we will call this page the intellectuals only page, Toozey you are more than welcome to stay and watch...learn...

MotherMachine, how comes you ended up living with Greek people?

for a change of subject...i have decide that i'm a psychopath...no actually i'm more of a...sociopath....yeh i've decided that i'm a sociopath, because i'm to social to be a psychopath....what'd do ya think?

Milo - People can do what they like in Non-Music Discussion, a little spam never did any harm. The other sections should be kept to what they are there for and not the Mustaines babble.

I'm not quite sure what your problem is with me, I banned someone because I and Leon thought they were behaving stupidly. I'm not saying Mustaine was a bad poster she just took some of her "jokes" too far sometimes and its not what we want.

Of course I may be wrong about who you are but you've made it quite obvious.

Is there something i've missed???

psychopath and sociopath are the same thing, it means the same thing. Good Word Play, Tip: try using quotes that people don't know! Great film though, Denis Leary is very sardonic no maybe not, i like black/dry humour me, so it appeals, Johnny Crown.

Actually, it has nothing to do with communism at all.
