You got some sort of bet to see how quickly you can get banned, or something? If so, I want in on it.

don't generalize-- Homos DO NOT receive small appliances as rewards for new recruitments; it isn't mary kay cosmetics we're selling.

did I mention how much I have missed these finger-lickin' good personal attacks of an uberpetty nature yet?

Nao-- It only seems fair to represent all of minutia in instances like this. I recommend one froot moderator, one asian moderator, one black moderator, one arabic moderator, one christian moderator, one athiest moderator, one muslim moderator, one pacific-islander moderator, one hispanic moderator, one buddhist moderator and two white moderators.

I thought the whole point of off-topic was, uhh.... to let people go crazy **** wild so they don't take it to the other various fora?
Exactly who are you ranting at?

Just a thought III

If the contents of the PM, according to the TOU, are not to be made public (in my understanding, ANY third party whether it's all across the forum or to an individual),

then

why is there a "FORWARD" button option when I read incoming PMs?



Seems like the TOU and PM interface is in contradiction with each other, or perhaps it is an elaborate entrapment/sting operation.


as I said, just a thought

Obviously to facilitate forwarding messages to the admin in case of threatening or similar messages come in to your inbox. The fact a tool exists does not negate any tenent of the TOU, no more than does a pistol's existence negate the unlawfullness of commiting a crime with one (armed robbery, eg).

Where is it again that we are going... And why are we in a handbasket?

why, everyone of course=)

Mostly whomever started in on private clubs discrimination being perfectly fine-- Does that mean that if the Ku Klux Klan seeks protection as a private club, then they're ok?

I'm not about to side with Bush and say that there should be limits to freedom in the grand sense of society as a whole, but I think the idea of needing some sort of decency is acceptable for a private club. You have to admit, we do have a lot of leeway here as compared to other places like m*shop.com.

BTW, it isn't that the rules apply to just some specific group. They apply equally to all.
