      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. I'm the troublemaker, frenchie.
  2. Political responses by elected officials to similar incidents can be found here, here, and here.
  3. Looks like a giant piano. Needs a giant clown playing it.
  4. The personal right and the miltia clause intersect at the people. That's us.
  5. Haven't you learned yet? When something is apparently uncited in a post of mine, look upthread. You might find mention of an uncooperative federal judge. You might have been complaining about repeated mentions of him for weeks. And, as usual, it appears you might not have read his injunction.
  6. And this is why I'm not allowed to touch them. At least, on the list of reasons.
  7. Nanothermite is addictive.
  8. My thoughts and prayers are not political. What is political about this topic?
  9. I'm not allowed to touch her cast iron stuff. Apparently, it requires special care and feeding.
  10. The law has been slowly evolving to accomplish that result since Santa Clara County v Southern Pacific RR, but has been moving in the opposite direction from the one you and Bent favor.
  11. I agree with your point about more laws = less enforcement, not to mention less respect for the law. In particular, as I've mentioned, parents I know don't have a lot of respect for the pool fencing law. They view them as govt-required eyesores/nuisances that do little if anything to enhance household safety. Getting back to hurricanes, I'm considering a shipping container as a sort of "hurricane bunker" shed to protect those things needed first/most after a storm. There are various ways to secure such a thing to the ground, but before you suggest concrete, I have to get a permit to make anything larger than 3' x 3' out of concrete. I can see the drainage issue in an urban area but the rule is county-wide. I fail to see any point at all to this rule. I'm allowed to put up a pole barn. No permit. Just build whatever. Might fly into a neighbor's home in a hurricane. Oh well. But don't you dare put a concrete pad for a shipping container.
  12. Thanks for the morning chuckle, Joe. A priceless addition to this thread.
  13. No stove? My wife just got a new induction stove. It loves to heat cast iron and does it in a big hurry. But she won't let me burn orange wood in the kitchen.
  14. Enough Is Enough would be a good title for a bill repealing the suppressor tax.
  15. You can lead a congresscritter to war, even if you're Trump, but you can't make him declare it.
