What about "The Dark Lord"? Why must the lord always be a good one?

Why can't "Dark ____" be good?

Not sure. By definition, everything dark seems to be bad.

Keep this up and he'll once again tell us that he's leaving forever.

I never had the pleasure of seeing someone threaten to kill themselves and actually pull it thru but when someone says that, I usually tell them to go ahead and give good advice on how to do it, just in case. So far, it has been hot air and a disappointment. I hate it when people don't follow thru

Fair enough. Many things.

Dark Lord
Dark Rites
Dark Side
Dark Power

Not sure why they are considered just because they are dark

Larry was not really what i considered a troll, he just started misbehavin, somewhat before exiting--and he was encouraged to overbear his point of view by the real trolls.
The thread about what would you have done if you were a 17 yr old in 67.........
It could have been taken either way, none the less--all the patriotic/moralistic bs aside---No way I would have ever been their boy.
Maybe he was trollin for an excuse to look down on anybody without the flattop point of view-maybe he wasn't.

Sure, it is somebody else who is responsible for your actions. Sorry, he did what he did and nobody put a gun to his head. Nice try.

Thing is, when he left, he declared he wanted to be gone and wanted us to beg him to stay. Popped back in a bit too, IIRC. All his content is deleted probably by his request. Then lo and behold, back he comes after his grandstanding "I'm Done with you". And this time for real
