    You know how they banned the ladder theory here? And the n-word?

    How about any of the following?

    Atheism threads

    Abortion threads

    Libertarianism threads

    'The US is a republic, not a democracy.'


    What do you reckon?

    Hmm, maybe this should be an OP, written properly with a poll.

    No.
    They banned ladder theory? When? O_o

    Like, back when Quid's Law was in the rulebook on phpBB.

    It's the idea that women instantly categorize any man they meet as [friend material] or [lover material], and you can never transfer from the former category to the latter.

    Nothing works into that. Stupid works into that. Occasionally some drunk girl with self-esteem issues will fuck a lonely nerd and they'll declare themselves Don Juan and get reality show on VH1.

    Nice Guys do just fine. "Nice" Guys creep everyone the fuck out and refuse to acknowledge that they're the problem. Hilarious levels of self-denial are pretty much required for accepting ladder-theory and its bullshit.

    Basically. Ladder theory is a satirical way of explaining why girls supposedly don't like nice guys. Although it's not really funny, and some people take it seriously.

    Load, Reload and Garage Inc weren't really moving on creatively... more like trying to make a quick buck with radio friendly soft rock. AJFA and the black album represents the band moving on creatively.
