Sad really. I used to enjoy his maniacal posts.

They were kind of like ‘A Beautiful Mind’ minus the chalkboard but with a greater emphasis on manly handshakes, the Northern stands, social clubs and multicolored and uncountable varieties of different font types.

Yes Col, the immoderators on this site have much to answer for.

Such beauty, such eloquent prose, such insight - a postmodernist genius destroyed at a stroke.

[censored] vandals!

I'll add a PS here. No doubt you are familiar with Seldon's commentary on Roland Barthes. I think it applies equally to ' luded.

" The virtuous writer recognises the artifice of all writing and proceeds to make play with it. .... Avant garde writers ( such as 'luded) allow the unconscious of language to rise to the surface ... (they) undermine the censorship of the signified and its repressive insistence on one meaning."

I'm sure you will agree on this fine point Col.

Luke 4:24 in the New Testament holds more weight than most would ascribe to it, Uncle Bitter.

You can't destroy something which only ever existed as a societal construct in the first place. 'Luded was just told to Foucaulf.

i just love it that roland was a semiotician. such a wonderful word........very 'woody'

Quote

Semiotics is the study of meaning-making, the study of sign process and meaningful communication. It is not to be confused with the Saussurean tradition called semiology which is a subset of semiotics.

You dare to compare the great man to a mere artifact, "a societal construct" ? You deserve a jolly good thrashing Skuit.

From what I understand Michel Foucault was quite partial to the administration and reception of, as you so eloquently put it, a jolly good flogging.
