      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.

Worthless fucking Lightbox - how to defeat

Recommended Posts

OK, when they did the big Forum downgrade, when you click on a pic, whether it is a hotlink or attached image, you get this stupid Lightbox thing rather than a new tab opening with the actual pic. And you cannot right-click and save, or really do anything with it.

 

Is there a way to defeat this? Could the admin turn this feature off, to go back to the old style?

 

Does anyone else hate this as much as I do?

Yup. Then add in the wetf it isstupid 'You may not post this type of image extension' frickin thingy (that are now found on about half of the news sights I try to C & P the story from)....and I end now having to save their image, toss into my computer, move it over to P/Bucket then post 'em that way. Big pain in the ass.

 

Which brings me to my next question---why the fuk do people always feel the need to fix something that ain't f'ng broke?....
