How do YOU react when someone points out YOUR errors in an unnecessarily insulting manner? Do YOU simply admit gracefully that you were wrong and not object at all to the insults?<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Actually I think Neoatheist is making it quite funny. I love it when people go on the offensive when they are wrong. If you don't back down they get really bent out of shape.</font>
Be that as it may, speaking as someone noted for doing quite a bit of web research (see my posts in the Church-State Separation forum, for example), I nonetheless see nothing wrong with Neoatheist's question. I suspect that the main thing Neoatheist wanted to know was something NOT likely to be found out from relevant websites, namely the significance of "All your base" to people in this forum. I suspect that Neoatheist assumed it was some sort of in-joke, as did I, except that I wasn't curious enough to bother asking.
It is obvious, even without resort to a search engine, that "All your base" is a reference to some poorly translated Japanese something-or-other. But that, in itself, does not explain the constant references to it in this forum. There are so many other items of pop culture out there that people here could refer to endlessly, if they wanted to, but don't. So why this one in particular?
