Sadly it would do no good. People who engage in such point-via-vandalism are usually too concerned with the rightness of their position to listen to any resonable counter and are often of the ends justifying the means philosophy. In truth, you'll find that such people tend to view shutting down an operation more desirable than the status quo even if they are actually seeking the continuance of the mission. Sad really, but all too obvious with many people and groups.

Hmm... When this so called "pr@t" hacked this group he said something like "[some name] strikes again!" in the description, though I was too annoyed to remember it. Not sure if he actually said his screen name (I doubt it) or just something like "[weird hacker name] strikes again!"

Not for the contest, but I wrote some poetry for... various reasons IRL.

-----
Am I an outcast? Am I not a friend?
Or am I someone else instead.
Is there something wrong? Am I a castaway?
Hanging on by boards in the ocean spray.

For whenever I speak, others shut their ears,
Turning away and leaving only tears.
If I attempt to comment, then the subject ends,
And I am left alone again.

What is my wrong? What is my folly?
Why must I always skirt the edge of society?
Oh world, reveal your tally of my sin!
For I fear that my sorrow will be my end.

-----
Dreams, so fleeting, pass me by
Dreams, so wondrous, cannot fly
If man doth dream of that which he has not
Then man, in sorrow, is left with what he's got.

Tis rare an occasion for dream to bear fruit
Tis common to see man's vision given the boot
Then is it better to dream and be left with thy lot?
Or is it better to stay low, down in the rot?

This is what I see, in my weighted heart
And in bitter tears keep in life to my lowly part
But anger hold I not, for if others' dreams soar
I will not hold it back, but rather proclaim it at the fore.

Must be an Australian thing. Essentially, generally in Grades 11 and 12, you go to a workplace one day a week and do a bunch of work theory modules. Over the course of two years you get a Certificate and usually a job with the workplace in question. You also get paid for the one day a week work.

In general I think the expectation will be that the paper comes out "early" in the week - similar to our behavior last winter/spring, since we are all just doing this as a fun hobby.

If you want to write a mech Colum or Star Wars one each week, then that would mean we would have to, for the sake of fairness, do weekly articles for every genre/theme.

If any big event happens (eg. Lego announces the next Star Wars line) then we could do some articles. I'll see what the other staff think, as I'm not the boss...yet..... But soon.... Soon.... I mean... Ur.... I'll ask the others.

Although it has been relatively quiet here, I would like to give you all something to cheer about. Decisive Action 3 is about to get underway and I would encourage all to join in. Promoting this battle royale would invigorate the pages, competing in the game would bring a healthy dose of life, and actively participating would lift the community. Hopefully the next issue here is on its way as well, reporting the insane workings there would be a wonderful addition to the News.
