1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    You will hardly find any German company older than 65 years which is not fully acknowledging their involvements with the Nazi regime (including financing independent research evaluating and documenting the full extend) and apologizing for it. Never seen companies in other countries addressing their involvements with dictators, human rights violations, etc.

    Yeah everyone knows that Hugo Ferdinand Boss was a real scoundrel. Not sure how it is related to the current brand but still good on them for apologizing.

    In before people throw around "fused" comments while pretending HB: TL doesn't exist. [​IMG]

    A lot of British and American companies profited from war as well but since they were on the winning side of the war, their companies don't have to apologize. Ford and IBM to name just two. It was an American IBM computer that assigned the numbers for concentration camp prisoners arm tattoos, based on age, body weight, etc IBM never apologised.

    Or how about where did the Nazi's get the idea for their Eugenics policies? Not from Germany but from America.
    American Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes being the culprit. He never said 'sorry' either.

    We can go on and on and on and on. There is no point in targeting Hugo Boss (company/man) unless you are prepared to target every other individual and company along with it (him), regardless of their country.
    Target not the weak-minded minion multitudes, but rather the evil itself and you'll win.
    This thread belongs only in the Politics section. It has no place on MC.
