      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.

    Now that BJ fixed it so I turned off the notification for every “vote”.....I am finding this whole “reputation journey” immensely entertaining. The whining will probably get old, but for now it’s totally popcorn worthy.

    I gotta say......if you’re 40, or 50, or 60 and still chewing on your service - good or bad - frequently....you need to let it go. I don’t own any item of clothing or hat or anything that says “I was”. I don’t hide it, I’ll occasionally chat about it in general terms if it comes up, but it’s not front and center in my everyday. I’m a vet, I pulled my weight. I can’t say I’m glad I did, but I’m proud that I did. I’m proud of the people I was with. I had it worse than some and way better than quite a few. But it’s done....a long time ago. Other than that infrequent moment when you stand with others in remembernce of your shared experience......just let it go......

    Nothing wrong with asking. Didn’t he also ask for lifetime medical for him and his kids or something like that?
  5. i dont get it.

    No they don’t. They most certainly don’t.

    But unless it matters to you how is it an injustice? I mean the whole website is just meaningless entertainment. I guess I must just view it differently. Carry on. Thanks.

    Not wanting to engage in a internet shitfight with someone I don't know over something absolutely meaningless, I am curious...genuinely so....what is the impact to you of "downvotes"? How exactly does it change your world. I mean......If I have 12,000 down or up votes on some internet BB..........it does not impact me or change my life in any aspect. I'm just wondering why it seems to mean so much to you.

    First....High School Teacher? Respect. Tough important job. Sounds like your Doc was dialed in on your individual case. That’s priceless when you have a Doc that knows you and your issues that well.

    I’ve noticed at a certain age that receptionists, clerks, etc. start talking to you like you suddenly became stupid. You suddenly fall victim to the lowest common denominator approach to explaining things.
  11. weird sinus issue

    There are certainly individual variances so it’s certainly possible your case was at one tail or the other of the curve. Also, i know zero about chronic sinus infections so I’d hesitate to try to generalize about your individual experience. It is certainly possible that your immune response dealt with the virus concurrently with you taking the antibiotic and they had nothing to do with each other. It’s also possible you individually had a chronic recurring bacterial infection. Just curious, was it ever cultured?

    That was a serious, good ole fashioned ass whupping. Impressive!
  13. weird sinus issue

    I use distilled. Its a bit of a pain cuz I warm it in the microwave first and then take it into the shower.....and the chances of getting a brain killer from tap water is pretty low but does exist. I figure being a retired fireman brain damage has already occurred...............
  14. Fuck you im sick anarchy

    Yeah, serious side effects are very rare so the worst case is you got a shot and still got the flu. The best case is you got the shot and have partial or complete immunity to the most prolific strain that year. Despite anecdotal stories, you don't get the flu from flu shots, most places the shots are free, and you run a good chance of increased protection. I don't see a down side unless you are a needle wuss. BTW - Grande's advice about hand washing etc. is key. From my time as a medic, I am a consistent hand washer. If your grocery doesn't have the antiseptic cart wipes, you might think of bringing a small package of your own as well. There are a few small studies that suggest that 1) grocery carts are a common vector for transmission and 2) antiseptic wipes probably help. I also reduce eating out at the height of flu season (lower my exposure opportunities) and never, never, never eat at a public buffet. Never.............
