    Other people said, in a thread that was subsequently closed before I saw it:

    Blah blah blah.

    I have a one word reply to these people:

    irony

    Thanks for reinforcing it; now bugger off.

    I couldn't reply in the original, and we have folks running around these forums thinking I'm a fan of Stalin.

    I thought they could use a nice smack upside the head.

    Dare I say it?? Better dead than red.

    That is the irony, right?

    It's true. I've always thought yours was the evilest avatar on MacRumors. ;)

    Mine is just obscure.

    Almost makes me wish he would stop posting. ;)

    If he could just get that little piano-chime-thingy noise integrated to sound off on mouseover, the madness would be crushing.

    Welcome to the liberal snakepit, comrade.

    Nah, pseudo, no one could consider you anything other than a Trotskyist.

    "I guess irony can be pretty ironic sometimes."

    :D I happen to think they have one of the most beautiful National Anthems ever written, which requires some compartmentalization. I wouldn't choose to whistle it, in line, at Wal-Mart.

    You'd be okay whistling in line..

    I think most of these people are too young to remember the USSR, and they wouldn't recognise you as supporting a regime which killed more people than the Nazis ever did.

    Now if you wore a swastika while whistling Deutschland Über Alles, you'd really cause a stink. :rolleyes:

    Umm... I remember the Soviet Union. I remember the day that my mother told me that nuclear missiles were pointed at my city and could be launched at any minute. Yikes! I think I was seven or eight. (I asked a lot of questions and my mom was always honest with me.)

    Well, I wouldn't use it as an avatar, but it doesn't particularly offend me. People might make assumptions about your viewpoint if they're looking at your avatar rather than reading your posts, but that's somebody else's problem, not mine.

    Pinko? I am flabbergasted. I've tried so hard to prove my full-on redness, and all I can muster out of the incensed masses is a "pinko"?

    Maybe you need to make it more obvious, some people just can't see irony, it's like it was hidden behind an irony curtain!
    *drum-roll & cymbal*


    Thank you very much I'm here all week!

    Boo.

    I'd throw rotten vegetables at you, but it wasn't available this week. You'll have to settle for a handful of rancid buckwheat.

    If you're lucky, you might get ergot poisoning. Viva la tarantella!
