    It's the same voice I was talking about when I said I don't like Twitter. The "voice of reason".

    Language is the most fascinating thing there is. A lot of people think the universe itself is language, or was formed from language.

    Probably better off having Luka in front of you TBH. You need to keep an eye on him.

    Legend says it's what you call a member of the secret Subversive Order of Dissensus.

    The SODs are renowned for their breadth of knowledge, large members and ability to feud.

    Once you pass 2000 posts you may be invited for initiation.

    I'm still waiting.
