      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.

OTTAWA (AP) — Canada's highest court has struck down the country's prostitution laws in their entirety in a unanimous 9-0 ruling.


The high court on Friday struck down all three prostitution-related laws: against keeping a brothel, living on the avails of prostitution, and street soliciting.


The ruling is a victory for sex workers seeking safer working conditions because it found that the laws violated the charter guarantee to life, liberty and security of the person.


But the Supreme Court of Canada decision also gives Parliament a one-year reprieve to respond with new legislation.


Ontario's Appeal Court previously struck down the ban on brothels on the grounds it exposed women to more danger.


Friday's landmark ruling comes 34 years after the Supreme Court last upheld the country's anti-prostitution laws.

Yet firearms owners can be thrown in jail for letting their license lapse. Security of the person doesn't come close to applying.

I don't need a license to feel secure. if you do, HTFU or move south.

 

Oh, I just noticed, you're from BC. Isn't that precious! That explains everything.

Fuck, the Supremes sensibly favour more freedom and somebody manages to find something to "Yet" whine about.

Don't get your hopes up. The standard MO between the courts and government is being followed here. The courts declared the legislation unconstitutional, but instead of declaring the it void effective immediately, they give the government time to reintroduce new legislation. The government brings in a bill to repeal the old legislation, then reinstates it word for word.

 

Then the whole legal process re-starts. The government, however, has unlimited tax dollars to spend fighting citizens in the courts, while the citizens do not.

 

Welcome to the new democracy....
