    Oh, that's right! Bit-tech is occupied by humourless pedophobic moral crusaders. I forget these things.

    Distinguish between displaying something because it's poignant and celebrating something as a moral template, for Christ's sake.

    The difference is you support that man - not the tanks.

    If you're ever a suspect in a crime, and they find that on your hard drive - that's gonna put you right in the spotlight....
