The Collective Guilt Thread

This being the new, new thing on GMG I guess we need a place to collect examples.

I nominate my neighbour Bob, because Bob has grey eyes and so did Charles Manson. I have no evidence against Bob, but he is grey-eyed.

What I don’t understand, Ken, is you have already left twice now and have come back, but you continue to post threads like this one where you’re sure to get all riled up and leave again. Why can’t you just stick to writing about music?

Probably like in the (just so?) story with the frog and the scorpion crossing the river. Some cannot change their nature ;)
Struck by the sounds before the sun,
I knew the night had gone.
The morning breeze like a bugle blew
Against the drums of dawn.

I nominate myself. I was part of the environment of the Socialist Republic of Romania, in which quality I hindered the career and violated the human rights of all those people who were fired and / or imprisoned for expressing political views contrary to those officially held and promoted.
