But please note that this is not an assertion, but a guess.

Uh, no. Not even close.

That was not even close a guess?

I can guarantee you, that was a guess.

You wouldn't happen to be, after the above two, the third sock puppet, would you? :lol:

Just joking .... Sorry.

There is no need to be sorry, I found it rather, hilarious. What purpose would James have for even one sock puppet? There are plenty of puppets already!

Yes, you made a guess. In terms of estimation, however, there is an error in the judgment of the value regarding James having the motivation behind using a sock puppet, to begin with.

One can't really do much wrong with a question in an opening post. Well, it has to be appropriate to the forum and the subforum where the thread with the question is to be opened, and it has to be serious, understandable and not offensive.

The standard should stay liberal, all points of view have some merit, some more then others, for the sake of preserving freedom of speech.


All else are twisted and hidden prejudicial cover-ups.

But maybe a ILP voting should commence, although it may become a microcosm of what's 'out there' and mimic the hurrendous political atmosphere of senseless confusion.

But even confusion has a meaningful correlate to some reason for allowence.


Moderators should be a cut above!

A sensation really...in more way than one...

Meno_ wrote:Actually, maybe. But as being Hungarian, i'm hangin'.

Attila the Hun-g-Aryan - terror of Romans and seed of formation, having too, Venetian results.

"the Sword of Attila had been presented to Otto of Nordheim by the exiled queen of Hungary, Anastasia of Kiev"

Quite fitting...all things considered.

Otto von Northeim was one of my ancestors. As true as I write here, folks.

If he were a moderator here, all would be right with the world again. **

Ahh.. I had wondered if there was any connection between you and a famous Otto.. I’m sure his moderation style would be awe-inspiringly impeccable.

I had also wondered who the Saxons actually were.. never having met an actual Saxon, so now I know the Saxon lineage.

Why is it Anglo-Saxon, and not just Anglo or Saxon? Did they merge at some point?

The Anglo-Saxons were called "Anglo-Saxons" because they came from Saxony (Old Saxony) and from Angles. Today there are still areas and peoples called Saxons and Angles. Westphalia, Engern and Eastphalia belong to Saxony. Angeln is a peninsula in Schleswig-Holstein.

Otto von Northeim came from Northeim in the Eastphalian part of Saxony (Old Saxony).

Yes, but why not just Angles or Saxons.. why Anglo-Saxons? Are they not separate Peoples? Did they bandy-together and become one Peoples? I am part Angle, so have a bit of a vested-interest in the 'why'.

Angles and Saxons are or - let's say - were separate people. They became one people, more or less. If someone tried to separate them again today, it would be pretty difficult, I guess.

By the way, the name "England" contains the word "Angles". You certainly know that.

And because I don't want to drift from the topic of this thread: An Anglo-Saxon as moderator would certainly be a good solution for ILP. :)

I do indeed.. the Angles had a massive influence on the integral structure and infrastructure of Great Britain, with whole swathes and/or parts of the country being named after them.. including TV and radio broadcasting networks, a Religion.. tho I’m RC, and then you have angles.. geometry, and angling.. fishing, amongst (so many) other concepts and objects.

I am not so learn-ed on all things Saxon I’m afraid, as my European lineages descend from the Angles.. tho I have visited ancient and medieval Saxon towns, villages, and churches etc. in England. My mother’s maiden-name actually means English, but I only found that out last year, when I was researching the more in-depth origins of my ancestry.

The Angles settled in the Midlands, East Anglia and the North of England, while the Saxons settled in the South. This is still reflected in dialectical differences between those areas, and in names of counties, for example. The Angles, who, unlike the Saxons, migrated here as an entire tribe, were more numerous and for centuries were the dominant element in the population, and gave their name both to the language, English, and to the country, England. The term Anglo-Saxon dates from the time of Alfred the Great, who wanted to distinguish the Saxons in England from the Old Saxons who remained behind in Europe.

@Maia: Ahhh, that’s where the Saxons mainly are.. in the South.

I did not know that the Angles migrated here in almost their entirety, but that would explain their influence on all things English and the language and Place names themselves, due to their dominant presence.. of numbers.

Maia said: “The term Anglo-Saxon dates from the time of Alfred the Great, who wanted to distinguish the Saxons in England from the Old Saxons who remained behind in Europe”. —that’s the pivotal moment in time and the reason behind the why that I was seeking. Saxons still remain in Saxony, but Angeln still remains uninhabited to this day.. since the Angles’ mass-migration to England.

My mind is now at peace on the matter, thanks. :D

No one, other than a moderator or “The Moderator on High”, can stop you from derailing thread after thread, but that wasn’t my only complaint about that particular copy/paste. My other problem with that Satyr paste was bringing unwanted, and quite frankly, overt harassment of an ILP member from another forum into that ILP member’s thread so that you are essentially harassing him as well, creating unnecessary drama. If Satyr interests you so much, bring over all the threads where he calls you a chimp amongst other creative names and place them in the sandbox where we can all weigh in, rather than hiding the shit where he holds you in high regards in the rant house. Or perhaps you would welcome my connecting the dots with copy/pasting Satyrs colorful posts about you in your non-rant house threads?
