      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. Best Rock Song Intros

    Conquistador -- Maynard Ferguson Oh, wait... never mind. You said rock songs...

  3. W

    "it's buried under this big W... You'll see it, ya can't miss it... this big W... "
  4. I get what you're saying... but to my mind, desperation like that maybe should just concede defeat and live with it, or find an expression more socially.... ummm ... mainstream... like maybe paying for it. "Irregardless" I know you do that on purpose... It seems to me that "civilization" is less and less just being inherently civil and more and more government's attempts at preventing lowest-common-denominator stupidity (i.e. placing him under formal investigation for "rape by surprise" ) Yes, I am a cynic...
  5. waht? rape by surprise?!?! YGBFKM Woman got scammed, plain and simple, and she just needs to acknowledge that, learn from it and move on. And shame, shame on the guy. How far must the authorities go to protect stupid people?
  6. A Moment of Respectful Silence...

    A former co-worker's son was there and escaped with just a bullet hole in his cowboy hat. Sorry to hear your friend wasn't so lucky, Jeff....
  7. what are you listening to right now ... part trois

    That was gorgeous... thanks, NH
  8. Names that have been ruined forever

    Yes. "Good evening ladies and Bruces!" just doesn't sound the same anymore...
  9. Jerry Pournelle Has Died

    his column in Byte magazine always a great read.
  10. HOT! HOT! HOT! (Peppers, that is)

    When I'm done cutting up hot peppers, I have a small glass dish with sealable lid that I keep a bit of isopropyl alcohol in to dip my fingers in and rub them abit... gets the oils off the skin that even hot soap and water won't always completely remove. Then those oils don't get near my eyes, into my nose or other sensitive places. I learned this the hard way.
  11. How do you know if the moon is waxing, or waning?

    That works, too... I just hope some precious lily doesn't whine about this being Northern-Hemisphere-centric...
  12. How do you know if the moon is waxing, or waning?

    To extend that, think of "DOC" D--waxing, O--full, C--waning
  13. Earworms...

    She has a very distracting tongue...
  14. Fumduck Athletes

    Never been comfortable with that idea... holding someone criminally accountable for an 'intent'. Technically, I would think that intent could never be proved beyond a shadow of a doubt, but.... maybe it's like double-secret Minority Report, or something...
  15. Best Science Fiction Movies

    If this list grows any longer, it's going to look more like a list of most of the science fiction movies, not just 'the best'.... but I'm ok with that... Silent Running
