      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.

Sounds like you don't know.

In the 1950s, they took all the farm land from the landlords and executed 800,000 of them.  Then they started collective farming.  That caused a famine and the death about 30 million more people, give or take 10 million.  

Then, in the late 70s, peasants started allocating land privately, but unofficially.  On these private plots of land, outputs tripled.  The Chinese government found out about it and started permitting others to do it.

That is how China became capitalist.  No more famines in China.  As the rest of the world develops in a similar fashion, hunger will be eliminated there as well.

You make all of these predictions, but the opposite of what you say is happening.  

We are talking fertilizer here, not social change.
