      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.

As a taxpayer for over 4 decades I just love lines like this:

 

"Because the Army was not able to provide us with a full assessment of program costs, we were unable to address the issue that the

constituent raised concerning cost overruns for the MDARS Program."

 

So....since the Army was incompetent (or conveniently shredded documents) , the GAO could not address the issue?

 

This for a program that started at $1.7 mil and rose to over $20 mil and missed at least 5 deadlines? Nope, no evidence of cost overrun issues here....

a slippery slope to PA, but - government spending is an unmitigated disaster on almost every level.

As a taxpayer if you knew what "non-profit" companies like Mitre and Aerospace got in the past 25 years you'd probably have a heart attack on the spot.

 

That program is par for the course.
