Aldie is the Site Admin. IE, he's basically the guy who owns the site

Sorry guys, but I think that someone with an Avatar, an Uberbadge, and several Microbadges is probably joking when he asks who is Aldie.

By the way, I would feel myself more identificated with the comic if instead of the pschicologist, there appeared my banker asking me why I was broke. My answer would be:

"Well, it all started with Boardgamegeek"

I take Geekmail from Aldie, print them on fine vellum and bind them in a leather book.

I get a geekmail from Aldie once a month. Many, many years ago, Aldie was testing the 'Geek Marketplace, and he used my account to purchase a number of fake games from him. So I've been getting monthly reminders from Aldie to pay him $1.57 in commissions for games I never bought. It's like the little paperboy from 'Better Off Dead'

If you want some geekmails from Aldi just subscribe to the Aldi-Newsletter at http://aldi.us/corporate_05/index.html
Btw is there an Aldie Newsletter with special offers?
And another btw: what the hell is a geekmail... (and what is a newsletter).. I don't get it.

I tried to translate it in german so that maybe some friends can understand it...

(I hope nobody is offended by a german making some Nazi jokes... [thin ice here!]) - I will remove the image if anybody finds it offensive!

Edit: removed the picture

I think the joke is that this "doc" is obsessed with letters..and Aldie can be pronouced like "LD", so the doc is just excited he got a GeekMail from two of his favourite letters!

Better to make jokes about them, then to vote them ( or their heirs the NPD ) again.

And thats probably the best way to show that being a german didn´t mean to be a Nazi.

geez, I better not let the wife see this one. She might realize that I need to see a shrink about my "Gaming problem" and waste money, that should go to buying more games, on trying to get me "help"

Okay, given the fact that wargames can't have Ye Olde Swastika on them in Germany, is this pic allowed in Germany at all?

Note: For a change, I'm not saying this tongue-in-cheek like I usually do, but because I honestly don't know the details of the laws there.

I wouldn't worry, it looks like the doctor doesn't think it's really an issue, he's checking out what game to buy next, after all, he did say "Aldie Sent me a geekmail"... So it can't be bad, can it?

Edit: I can't read, I thought the doc said : Hold on Aldie, send me a geekmail. - That was funnier!
