      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

  1. What IS harrassment?

    I'm dealing with a case at work. Guy came in late to a meeting and someone called him on why he was late. He responded by saying "Because I was fucking your wife". This offended one of the women that was present. But instead of saying something to him, she contacted HR and all her Union reps and her boss immediately. There was no chance for correction or apology. This is on a manufacturing floor so there's quite a bit of off-color behavior. This guy faces losing his job over a comment that would have funny in different company. His comment was well over the line, but zero tolerance policies say he should lose his job, and that's just not right to me.
  2. Net Neutrality - gone.....

    Yeah, I came to that same conclusion. No facts, just throwing around random opinions trying to piss people off. That's ok, the ignore function is superb on these boards.
  3. Yep - all the parts I've ordered have come in and look good. Not CNC machine good in terms of fit, but they definitely work well.
  4. S2 7.9

    Yeah, but be ready to pay. No knock on whitewater's quality - they turn out top notch work. But when I priced out a bow pulpit their quote was pretty expensive.
  5. Net Neutrality - gone.....

    AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. You're a jewel. Let us know when you grow up.
  6. Net Neutrality - gone.....

    Yeah, in a land where most people are lucky to HAVE one provider. You're a worthless corporate twat that just reeks of "I don't have a problem so fuck everyone else."
  7. Net Neutrality - gone.....

    JZK, I think everyone here needs to take a good long look at you and consider what your agenda might be with regards to net Neutrality, because you are literally parroting the mind blowingly stupid talking points that Pai has already used and lied about. Clearly you're a tool that doesn't want to educate yourself, so on the incredibly off chance that you might shut the fuck up and learn something, here you go: 2005 - Madison River Communications was blocking VOIP services from competing with their voice offering. The FCC put a stop to it.2005 - Comcast was denying access to p2p services without notifying customers.2007-2009 - AT&T was having Skype and other VOIPs blocked because they didn't like there was competition for their cellphones.2011 - MetroPCS tried to block all streaming except YouTube.2011-2013, AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon were blocking access to Google Wallet because it competed with their own wallet apps.2012, Verizon was demanding Google block tethering apps on android because it let owners avoid their $20 tethering fee. This was despite guaranteeing they wouldn't do that as part of a winning bid on an airwaves auction.2012, AT&T - tried to block access to FaceTime unless customers paid more money. So yes, there were FUCKING PROBLEMS. Do you think that the FCC created Net Neutrality rules because there were fucking bored and had nothing better to do? You're a useless shill, and the only thing left is to determine whose cock you're sucking to spew your bullshit. Why am I pissed at idiots like you? Because I'm in the enviable position of being 1 mile outside comcast serivce, and they won't extend. 1 mile outside DSL. And with the mobile broadband providers all colluding on the price of 'unlimited' data that really isn't, my only choice for broadband is satellite internet that barely works on the best day. Because of monopolies (comcast), collusion (the wireless companies) and LACK of any meaningful government oversight. But despite all that the government claims that I'm in an acceptable broadband region - even though my average throughput rate is south of .5mB on a good day. And that's in Macomb county, Michigan, one of the most populated counties in the state. It's the same symptom of the same problem - basic services being fucked with because large companies can do it without any retribution.
  8. mass beatings, rape and murder

    Oh shit. I was arguing with Meli. Derp.
  9. BITCOIN,,, anyone playing that game?

    Digital currency is profitable for only a couple groups. The exchange owners, who can walk away with your money whenever they like. The early adopters who can sell after the initial 5000% jump... and the scammers that walk away when early adopters put their money in. https://www.cryptocoinsnews.com/exit-scam-confido-startup-vanishes-after-raising-375k-in-ico/

    People just do not understand technology. I DO robots...... GPS and Gyro stabilization units are now the size of a pea. Sending real time video back to a cloud for computation of things like facial recognition is already here - the processors on the drones don't have the CPU for it. The biggest problem is the processor minaturization - it isn't quite there yet. But..... it will be in 2 years.
  11. mass beatings, rape and murder

    Yeah... kinda coming to the conclusion the Shortforbob has some pretty thick rosy glasses on. We've seen time and again that it doesn't work. Definition of insanity and all that.
  12. mass beatings, rape and murder

    Seen North Korea lately? Cuba?
  13. mass beatings, rape and murder

    Check your history man. We've a ton of it, from Japan to Poland to Iraq to Haiti to Burma. We've persuaded the EU to hit everything from Belarus to Congo. But fucking over a country just pisses off the people and makes them stand up against you. We've learned that lesson over and over again. We need to fix our own country.
  14. mass beatings, rape and murder

    The same reason we couldn't "fix" Iraq and Afghanistan. True change needs to be internal, and the peoples of these countries don't see the need or have the want to actually change. We need to give up on nationbuilding. It's pretty simple.
  15. mass beatings, rape and murder

    No doubt we waste a lot of time on things like oil and ignore the human rights aspects, but until the governments of Myanmar and India want to change, their people aren't going to change. We can't fix that.
