We have before us an ordeal of the most grievous kind. We have before us many, many long hours and days of struggle and of suffering. You ask, what is our policy? I will say: It is to wage war, by football, nags and other sports, with all our might and with all the strength that Slick can give us; to wage war against a monstrous tyranny never surpassed in the dark, lamentable catalogue of human forums. That is our policy. You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word: It is victory, victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror of losing, victory, however long and hard the road may be. I have, myself, full confidence that if all do their duty, (you listening Yorkie) if nothing is neglected, (you again, Yorkie) and if the best arrangements are made (err...and again), as they are being made (castration for losers, death for clean sheets), we shall prove ourselves once more able to defend our forum home, to ride out the storm of war, and to outlive the menace of the Irish, if necessary for years, if necessary alone. At any rate, that is what we are going to try to do. That is the resolve of Betnods hierarchy — every man of them. That is the will of the mods and the posters. The British Empire (well, England, anyway, with a bit of help from the Jocks) and the French Republic (not sure about them tbh), linked together in their cause and in their need, will defend to the death their native soil, aiding each other like good comrades to the utmost of their strength. Even though large tracts of the internet and many old and famous sites have fallen or may fall into the grip of SOPA & PIPA and all the odious apparatus of Leprechaun rule, we shall not flag or fail. We shall go on to the end. We shall fight in France with the unders line, we shall fight on the seas and oceans (that'll be other sports), we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air (long ball game then), we shall defend our forum, whatever the cost may be (hopefully only Yorkie). We shall fight on the beach volleyball courts, we shall fight on the football grounds, we shall fight in the final furlongs and in the tennis courts, we shall fight in the darts & snooker halls if necessary; we shall never surrender, and if, which I do not for a moment believe, this forum or a large part of it were subjugated and starving/dieting, then our Empire beyond the seas (possibly mord if we can find him, or that Radoslav character thats always on & has never hardly posted), armed and guarded by RC, would carry on the struggle, until, in Komps good time, the new world, with all its power and might, steps forth to the rescue and the liberation of the old.
