A resolution is legal act by the EU parliament that is non-binding. The details are complicated but everything the european parliament does is either:

1.) a regulation = a law that is immediately effective in all member states
2.) a directive = not a law but the member states are legally obligated to create national laws according to whatever the directive descripes
3.) a decision = only affects a certain person or entity
4.) everything else is just the parliamant saying: "it would be nice if you did that but we really don't care"

That's not what I was talking about. Eurounionforumites is shorthand for European Union Forumites, since if I just say Euroforumites I'm sure the non-union Euroforumites will bitch at me.

HEY EUROUNIONFORUMITES, YOUR SOCIALIST TRASH SUPRANATIONAL PARLIAMENT IS GOING TO BAN ALL PORNOGRAPHY NEXT TUESDAY!

The EU are capitalists. Public service provision =/= socialism. Private money controls politics in the EU, just the same as in the United States.

Signapore and Hong Kong have good public health and education systems, and they are quintessential capitalists.

Yeah, I always call you guys socialist trash. I'm pretty sure most forum searches for that term would lead to my posts.

Close, but you only have 50% of the results for socialist trash. Though I believe the other two posts are discussing garbage as an example of public services in a discussion of socialism.

I think I've also used Eurotrash and Communists, it can be hard to remember with 15000 posts. I know this isn't the first time.

Generally don't refer to you guys, It's assumed my audience is either international or american, never had to refer.
 
I suppose I'll go with a Romance "Y'all". Europe is now officially "Y'all fancy folks wit dem britches", or "dem euros" for short.

I'm still surprise this porn stuff is going on. I'd love to see the exact wording, but since it basically a useless resolution made by a toothless body, I won't bother looking it up.

I read that as: "the only good porn is gay porn. Less titties, more hot man luvin' "

The recent anti-porn bill scare has completely proven that people on the internet don't pay any attention to bills besides "Oh no, will it hurt my internets? Government is trying to kill freedom of speech! Bring out the Orwell references!"

I mean, I was pretty sure they were mindless single-issue people just like everyone they ridicule, but I thought there was a small chance that the people crusading for freedom of information would occasionally make an effort to use that freedom.

You don't use freedom Penguin. First you demand it, then you have it.

No using. That's not what freedom is for.

What's funny is that the article right next to it is : "Convictions for file-sharing violates human rights" by the European Convention. Which is again not exactly what was said.
