      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.

    to be fast is good
    but fastest with no control
    means all can be lost

    a ghost from the past
    haunting present and future
    legacy systems

    night covers smoothly
    brewing storms between the stars
    bird flies softly still

    Now this stalker knows what's what: http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/2018/04/18/taylor-swift-stalker-suspect-wore-mask-had-knife-and-rope-police-say.html Those here in SA are too fixated with what doesn't work. There's a lesson here, folks. P.S. Don't worry about UpVoting or DownVoting my comments. @Editor (aka @LB 15) has seen fit to make sure no one can like or dislike what I post. Nice guy, huh? Aw, Tempesta (or was it @mad?). You've gone and spoiled it. An Icon just appeared for the first time in weeks on one of my posts. Weeks!! <sigh> Not going to pay attention to anything more you post, piggy @mad. Consider this an official "Ignore" post.

  5. Such a focus of attention, am I. Get over it, gang. They're only 1s and 0s. (FYI, someone in an unguarded moment of glee, decided to slap up four posts of 30 Downvotes each on my account on October 31, drastically escalating my negative community reputation here. It snowballed from that point on, amusing everyone to no end. I took no notice of it, but everyone else did.) Updated 04.22.2018: Speaking Different Languages —Captain Gigi 04.22.2018 • Tempesta: I found only one person, who could do that on SA, and it wasn't you or your cohorts. ("I'll tell it not in Gath.") • SB: They just don't get that they've hacked Drive, not my account. Stupid, huh?
