Warning: This post was published more than 10 years ago.
I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!
But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:
- My views might have changed in the 10 years since I wrote this post.
- This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
- Factual information might be outdated.
- Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.
Many thanks for your understanding.
There really could be only one final post in this series of classics, given that I’m focussing on those with interesting discussions. The discussion following the publication of Denmark cartoon controversy was the biggest ever on the site – some of the comments are unintelligible rants, but many make interesting reading. Please remember to leave any further comments there, rather than here.
I do hope you enjoyed your Christmas, and (less importantly) this experimental series of classic posts – I hope that it will encourage you to browse the archives more often. Normal service will be resumed shortly!
