      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.

No Free Speech in America

How's this for a fucked up place.

A US teacher who was handcuffed and arrested after questioning her superior's pay rise at a public school board meeting has said she does not think the man who arrested her should lose his job.

Key points:

  • Teacher Deyshia Hargrave hopes her arrest for questioning school superintendent's pay will empower students
  • Rally held supporting Ms Hargrave, who is considering lawsuit for First Amendment violations
  • School boss says incident took community by surprise


Deyshia Hargrave was escorted out of the school by deputy city marshal Reggie Hilts after she contested a planned salary increase for the Louisiana school board member despite teachers not being given one in a decade.

Around 100 supporters attended a rally, chanting "Stand by Deyshia" and waving signs promoting free speech to condemn the treatment of the English teacher.

Ms Hargrave said her arrest emphasised the need to speak out on important issues and hoped the case would serve as a positive example to her students
