Is Goth Just a Phase?

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Some of the nonsense contained herein may be very loosely related to The Sisters of Mercy, but I wouldn't bet your PayPal account on it. In keeping with the internet's general theme nothing written here should be taken as Gospel: over three quarters of it is utter gibberish, and most of the forum's denizens haven't spoken to another human being face-to-face for decades. Don't worry your pretty little heads about it. Above all else, remember this: You don't have to stay forever. I will understand.

I know you've explained it before, but where did you get that name? Every time I see it I shudder with horror yet nevertheless find myself amused.
The most successful tyranny is not the one that uses force to assure uniformity but the one that removes the awareness of other possibilities, that makes it seem inconceivable that other ways are viable, that removes the sense that there is an outside.

Survey done - yet another for who 'this phase I'm going through ' equates to 30 years and counting

but nothing comes out when they move their lips

Looks like Mr Sinister (The Blogging Goth) has joined in too. ;)
Expect lots of surveys :D
Well it's a small world (and it smells funny). Should have known this place would be Ground Zero for us all!

I dropped Emma an e-mail as I'm curious about what she finds out, so there will be an article on her results for us non-academic lot in the future.

It's like being an alcoholic. You're always an alcoholic, even if you've got in under control.

That is the best quote yet!!

Thanks again everyone. I will keep you posted as the response rate has been great and people have been very generous with their time.
