      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.

Because they don't have the benefit of white male privilege?

You know white males CANT be victims therefore would never need help from the police.  Why would you post that which you know is not possible?

While I am not a fan of Secretary DeVos WRT education and policy, and I don't believe this should be the standard, I commend her for this.

Secretary DeVos does fly private on work trips........by using her own plane.

And, she is not out there bragging about it, to my knowledge.  

I applaud her.

She's covering her ass.  She lives the high life but someone close to her told her to keep it on her own dime.  Smart.  This will protect her from the shit storm that is hitting Price.  And it really back stabs him in the best way possible.  You think pyramid man is playing this right?

Oh, for what it's worth, Amherst costs $72,000 a year. 

FFS - each student should have a personal professor for that much.

Fucking ridiculous.

That is pretty near the reality.  I remember seeing a report in The Chronicle of Higher Education a few years ago.  CHE is the weekly job site and news for the university types.  If I remember correctly, Amherst Profs (real ones, not adjuncts) had just about the highest salaries and lowest teaching loads of all US universities, including the R1 research shops (Berkeley, etc).  Sure hope it is worth it.

I think she's doing it because it's Nicole and dime money for her and no one can snipe around asking where and when and why.  Also no one listening in on her private conversations, etc.

Regardless of her reason(s) for flying on her own dime, I respect her decision. Funny how Secretary Price is happy to provide such a glaring example of dickishness in counterpoint.

I suspect she never even thought of billing taxpayers for her jet (missed opportunity).  And once Price stepped on his dick, came out quick to point it out.

Was it her who brought it up?  I must’ve missed that.
