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,

    I love that the only women they saw fit to make their top five was Kate Middleton. If I was a woman I'd boycott the magazine

    Seems a bit vague, but it'll work I suppose?

    It's fucking lazy. It could've been that Tunisian guy that lit himself on fire thereby litting most of the Arab/North African world on fire. Nope the left him at number 2 or 3.

    I've been looking for a convenient way to compare OWS with Stalin, so this will do just fine.

    I wish we could feed the OWSers TO stalin. At least then they'd be put to good use.

    It should have been the Tunisian fruit merchant. You can't lump self-immolation in the same category as urban camping.

    The Tunisian was the main man this year without a doubt with Ambrosini the trousers crook from Naples..

    I think one has to look at these things in context though. The USSR was an ally during WW2 and the US was friends with Nazi Germany in 1938, obviously before WW2 and Pearl Harbor.

    Here's another interesting one...

    Ayatollah Khomeini.

    Think this was after the 1979 Iran revolution and during the American hostage crisis.

    Richard Nixon "Tricky Dicky" was also Time Person Of The Year(twice)...before Watergate.

    Strange choices..

    Pierre Laval was also man of the year before his collaborationist years but it was for great economical recovery..
