      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.

Salyersville, KY — Worldwide, people are rallying to help a 9-year-old eastern Kentucky boy suffering from cystic fibrosis set a Guinness World Record.

The young boy, Dalton Dingus, is battling stage four cystic fibrosis. His goal is to beat the current Guinness Book of World Records for receiving the most Christmas cards.

News station WKYT reports that the current record is 35,000 and Dalton currently has 23,000 cards. Recently the Morehead State University softball team spent Friday afternoon collecting Christmas cards. No one has asked for money to be sent, just a Christmas card.

Cards can be sent directly to Dalton at:

Dalton Dingus

HC 62 Box 1249

Salyersville, Ky. 41465

In 1989 Craig Shergold received an estimated 350 million greeting cards, earning him a place in the Guinness Book of World Records.

In fact, variations of the plea for greeting cards sent out on his behalf in 1989 are still distributed through the Internet, making the plea a persistent urban legend. Shergold was the same age as Dalton when his request was made.

We did some digging and found a Facebook page dedicated to Dalton, called Dalton’s Destroyer’s.

A post shows the thousands of cards delivered, in just one morning. A post on Snopesconfirms that Dalton is receiving Christmas cards, but doesn’t mention Guinness Book of World Records goal, just that “this is something you can feel good about…”

In November, Dalton was visited by “Banjo Neal.” You can see the advanced stage of cystic fibrosis that Dalton is battling.
