TESTEMONAIL: Right and Discordianism allows room for personal interpretation. You have your theories and I have mine. Unlike Christianity, Discordia allows room for ideas and opinions, and mine is well-informed and based on ancient philosophy and theology, so, my neo-Discordian friends, open your minds to my interpretation and I will open my mind to yours. That's fair enough, right? Just claiming to be discordian should mean that your mind is open and willing to learn and share ideas. You guys are fucking bashing me and your laughing at my theologies and my friends know what's up and are laughing at you and honestly this is my last shot at putting a label on my belief structure and your making me lose all hope of ever finding a ideological group I can relate to because you don't even know what the fuck I'm talking about and everything I have said is based on the founding principals of real Discordianism. Expand your mind.

i think blaming conservatism is just as naive as blaming liberalism, or even for that matter blaming government in and of itself.
I think the closest you got to a coherent statement is "people like jack are the problem". are you like jack?
This fread is a fucking toolbox. I was all "fair enough" until I had a think about it last night and you know what? GET A FUCKING GRIP ON REALITY!
This is shit we type on the internets. If you think you can make money on something you've written then go make some fucking money on it. Don't post it in a goddamn message board. Here's the deal - I will use whatever the hell I goddamn well please for #6 (permission or not) If you aint happy with this guess what - that's right you can go fuck yourself. Or grow the fuck up, one of the two.
I'm not planning on making money from it, you sure as hell don't seem to be. If someone else manages it then well fucking done that guy. You want to get all butthurt cos you never thought of it then be my guest but FFS we're not talking the great american novel here and if we are then save it on an encrypted hard drive an guard it with your life. Don't broadcast it in cyberspace, don't expect some joke hippy play on the word "copyright" to somehow protect you.
I have an alternate proposal. You publish anything of mine, for any reason, and you will be buried under a pile of subpeonas so fast your fucking head will spin. I still have a rather large retainer with Irritable John, my attorney back in Illinois, and that is money already spent...so I will have absolutely no problem with lawyering you into bankruptcy, because it won't cost me a dime.
Posting something on the internet does NOT make it public domain, and even if it did, I'd just use procedural monkey business to drive you broke. Please note that the server and the board (ie, ECH and Faust) will be left out of any legal wranglings...you and you alone will be the sole target of the hilarity.
If you think I am bluffing, by all means, do something dumb.
Okay, that being said, and having read most of the thread, I see no reason to continue ranting, or to finish the handbook, or post podcasts. I did it for FUN, not so some fucking tapeworm could make a quick buck off of my writing. You have made it NOT fun, simply by virtue of your above post.
You want to make a buck on writing? Write your own shit, you fucking vulture.
On the other hand, P3nT wrote a great rant....
So, Rat, I take it that you view anything posted anywhere on the internet as an "internet post", and therefore not worth worrying about intellectual property rights over?
