I like these forums even though I think they basically died just when I started posting (sorry smile).

We've found the culprit, everybody!

Where is the thread containing the cartoon series that took the piss out of the libertarian poster? 'The adventures of Captain Buckethead' I think it was.

Ooooh, I sort of remember that. Those were fun. I'd love to read them again!

That was one of Omen's cartoons, I believe.

I think Omen made the error message for libcom, back when he was Nemo. iirc he took a break, forgot his password so started a new account.
Some of the things here are his, not all of them make sense if you weren't obsessively posting on libcom ten years ago though.

Those individualists surely had their way with words:

'You should listen to me I have solved these contradictions, my doctrine is consistent, moral and pragmatic.'

and my personal favorite insult:

'You libcommies are slipperier than an oilskin sack of greased eels.'

To this day, I don't know what that means but I think we should be proud to be on the receiving end of that one.

Omen's comics are so great smile

I wish it was easier to post images on the forums. We can only post online images but can't upload stuff from our own files.

Btw, if the forums do get shut down, will the old posts remain as an archive? Or will it all be deleted from the internet, gone without a trace?

Easiest way to do images is to upload to something like imgur, then embed them.

And no, we won't delete stuff (well, we may unpublish some crap but not any good stuff)

Aside from the comics, Omen also wrote this 'capitalism under the dome' comedy sketch. It's basically a script, so there's no images that accompany it.
