The best thing about Padraig is that after being banned he'd always invent a new persona and try very hard to disguise himself. But slowly, and then more quickly, tell-tale Padraigisms would sneak into his posts and somebody (usually me) would unmask him, and the whole thing would start all over again. Even now I divide Dissensians into pre- and post-Padraig.For me nothing comes close to the kind of craziness that HMLT generated by being so utterly crazy - and aggressive - in himself.
I have some friends on FB that I think come from ILM and they are constantly making lists of best albums and stuff - but it's mainly stuff I don't really like, you know obscure US guitar bands from 2004 or whatever. Seem fairly cool guys though. Not cool cool but you know what I mean, nice I suppose.
