By his own admission, his username is intended to be a homage to the Das Reich panzer division, rather than the Third Reich as a whole. Worse than tasteless, imo. The Oradour-sur-Glane episode is just one of the reasons for thinking that.eh?
Because of his username?
Hey guess what, I am not really a very tall furry beast from a galaxy a far far away !!!!
You are also not very bright. No-one is suggesting that we have an SS panzer division posting on NSC.Hey guess what, I am not really a very tall furry beast from a galaxy a far far away !!!!
^ Bill, I'm guessing you're agreeing with me rather than Lord Bracknell, going by the time posted.
I know about Das Reich, it's not nice stuff, as I've said I've visited the place. But if I changed my username to Genghis Khan or Chairman Mao or any dictator or genocide movement is that tasteless? It's an interesting thought, one that's stopping me from tidying up the flat.
(by the way, I know nothing of Das Reich the NSC poster, I only remember not agreeing with him on most things so I'm not being biased)
We have debated the validity of his using deliberately this provocative username,I know the history thank you and my reason for re-starting this debate is the fact that Germany is at last attempting to bring justice to the surviving murderers.How does he pollute the site you obviously just found out where the name comes from, learn your history.
I've never had a problem with it
