      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. Shooting fish in a barrel.

    That. in a nutshell. Of course then we would have nothing to argue about. Oh wait, there would still be the last 20% so it's all good.
  2. Which nutjob was Hillary before getting flicked? That doesn't seem to help as Eva Dent
  3. Shooting fish in a barrel.

    haha, I stick to a nice ale, IPA or the occasional single malt. There are a lot of very conservative people in my neck of the woods (Texas) and they are to a fault well meaning and convinced that liberals are just naively brainwashed sheep. I rarely bother engaging in anything religious or political since they aren't interested in anything but reinforcing their own beliefs. Sort of like here.....
  4. Shooting fish in a barrel.

    No need - there are a variety of plans currently implemented around the world. Frontline did an excellent piece on them years ago including comparisons. You must realize that as a country we pay much more for less. As to you, I don't know - my better half works for a company based in the UK and her healthcare is free to her and is outstanding. She also hates her job to the point it has degraded her health but can't afford to leave because of ........ wait for it......... the cost of obtaining that coverage on her own. ( I am self employed so no help). In conclusion I consider you to be well meaning while also myopically self centered. Enjoy.

    Good to see we are focused on the money. That's what is important.
  6. Rimas is alive

    Now if you look up "washed up" in the dictionary it has his picture.
  7. He knew what he signed up for

    Put the mirror down dude.
  8. Thank you John McCain

    or peasants? (fowl pun intended) For the record few knew how ignorant either were until they started speaking. Put the blame on the vetting crew who know that the average GOP voter likes someone white and attractive. The end.
  9. He knew what he signed up for

    Not often I disagree with Ben - if I were the grieving widow I would like to know that most people are insulted and upset by the phone call from the Toddler In Chief. Or we just say nothing and let her think well, maybe he should have just been a lineman for the phone company - if he died he would know what he climbed up for.

    This thread and Rimis lives. It never ends.
  11. Shooting fish in a barrel.

    yep - always with the "people tell me" anecdotes. There is absolutely no reason the US doesn't have basic universal healthcare - and nothing stops anyone from buying premium care if they so choose. To be fair what is stopping this is the vested interests enriching themselves and convincing the voters they shouldn't vote in their best interest. Plenty of evidence in this thread for that. Few people know there are sales guys knocking down 7 figures selling these policies to large corporations. LOTS of money to keep the status quo and quiet.
  12. Defending Trump ain't easy. Or smart if ya get my drift. It's harder to discern the truth from Trump as lying is what he does best. #sad
  13. Shooting fish in a barrel.

    The rest of the civilized world has figured out that a sick populace is bad. Sick people don't work - they contribute nothing while consuming massive amounts of resources. Healthcare is just as much a right as clean air and water and disease free food. Some of you should spend some time to see how a large % of the population is living and dying. It's fucking depressing.
  14. When you can't defend deflect. There is no defending the Toddler In Chief.
  15. kimmel rules

    Wall of Shame - classic. I used to sail with a guy who got photos of anyone who got seasick, made for great comedy. If the forum actually did this the pussies would scatter like cockroaches when the light comes on.
