      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.

The Italian Job

5 posts in this topic

Part 7 of an ongoing series.

First up

Trump pays tribute to Luciano Pavarotti.Could someone please tell him he's been dead for ten years and his family are not friends either?

"Through the ages your country has been a beacon of artistic and scientific achievement," Trump told Prime Minister Gentiloni. "That continues today."

"From Venice to Florence to Verdi to Pavarotti – friend of mine," President Trump said. "Great friend of mine," he concluded.

Trump should remember the late Italian operatic tenor. Last summer during the race for the White House the Trump campaign frequently used Pavarotti's rendition of the Puccini's aria "Nessun Dorma" ("None Shall Sleep") without permission. Pavarotti's family sent a letter requesting they stop using his music.

The family's statement was not a generic request, but rather, an attack on Trump's character. It said that "the values of brotherhood and solidarity which Luciano Pavarotti expressed throughout the course of his artistic career are entirely incompatible with the worldview offered by the candidate Donald Trump."

So much for being great friends.
