      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. A Picture is Worth 1,000 Words

    Everybody's got that generic stuff on their phone. It's a near straight line from end of 2008 to today, except for the dip in 2015. It all started at $6,600 and we've had a nice ride, in spite of Republican obstruction on economic policy for 6 straight years. Now....This is the first year that the Dotard can take credit for what the stock market does, starting after the November tax bill. Very mixed reviews to say the least. By the way, using the really tired old trope "***More Fake News***" is just a way to announce to the world that you are a kool-aid drinker and to ignore what follows as regurgitated bot-talk. So, on to ignore.
  2. 1000 Days Anne Finds a New Home

    If they paid a little more, they could get a couple of boxes of drywall screws thrown in.
  3. VOR Leg 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

    So you're going on and on about a group - dedicated to reducing the use of unnecessary plastic - not providing water in plastic bottles for your daughter. Now, who is really responsible for providing that water for her? Didn't remember to pack any along, eh?
  4. Fast "safe" boat....

    Carbon fiber belt. Still has that 34" waist he had in high school! Same bra size too! (Speaking of "utter twat")
  5. VOR Leg 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

    Until this particular rubber band contracts again.
  6. Now we have the basis for a constructive dialogue.
  7. A Picture is Worth 1,000 Words

    Not as well as it did under Obama. But you knew that.
  8. Rosenstein says Happy Jack not who he seems

    I expect they used a large font, Kept the bullet points to 5 per page, No more than 7 words in each bullet point, and the briefing to under 15 minutes. WH rules for getting and keeping the Dotard's attention. Pictures help. I wonder if they have tried colored paper yet. Or gold ink.
  9. Just Another High School Shooting

    "Guns don't kill people, people with guns kill people" Do I have that mantra right? How about "People with fewer guns kill fewer people" Or "People without access to military weapons kill fewer people". Or "People who are mentally unstable who do not have access to military weapons kill way fewer people". Now we are getting somewhere.
  10. Trump won! Get over yourself! Benghazi! E-mails! All polls forever are tainted! The national polls indicated that she would win the popular vote by just about the 4 million vote margin that occured.
  11. Graffiti Artists sue building owner for painting the building

    "Wouldn't I have the right to head up there and tag their shit?" Oh, please, please do. Post pictures.
  12. Front Page: Big Problem Big Solution and Fail

    When the problem is everywhere,the solution is to do everything. Not to nitpick individual efforts, but to make additional efforts on your own. The problem is poverty, the problem is the convenience culture, the problem is education, the problem is greed, the problem is denial.... The solution is to do everything.
  13. Just Another High School Shooting

    Self-recognition as a sociopath cannot be expected. What, you don't want my thoughts and prayers for improved mental health? The kids were shot, by a member of the weapons culture. QED.
  14. Could AI reliably identify likely shooters?

    Sociopaths are actually pretty easy to pick out. In fact, they often WANT to be picked out, particularly if they're a bit narcissistic on top of it. They LIKE being thought of as unique and special because in their mind, they ARE! And "they" take pleasure in signing laws that make it easier for the mentally disturbed to get access to weapons.
