Remember when Snowstalker promised to change?

So we should judge a poster on the basis of another poster's behavior? Seems totally fair to me.

Well he's already flooding this thread with unfunny inside jokes and memes so I'm not optimistic.

My big thing is his version of Update was the single worst thread in Atlas history. In fact Mikado locked primarily because he knew how embarassing it was going to be.

Time for a vintage Update trip down memory lane: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MBsKZUAHzAc

Also Xahar recounts a classic episode here that I'm reminded somewhat of here: http://uselectionatlas.org/FORUM/index.php?topic=173181.msg3739207#msg3739207

What's a payroll card and how is one paid with it?

It's basically a prepaid debit card that your employer adds onto every pay period. My employer uses them for the few employees who refuse to get direct deposit, it discontinued checks about two years ago.

Generally better, but still worse than it was pre-2014.

I want to keep him around just because I'm amused by the idea that he's opebo despite having basically nothing in common. Like seriously how does snyone get that idea?

Once again, BRTD latches on to obsessively discussing a weird theory someone had 3 months ago...

Man, imagine if someone ever started obsessively hunting for the source of rather mundane "leaked" info from the mod forum including blackmail...

Why, so every thread can be a circlejerk about how terrible the Russians are and how great Israel is?

So it's LARPing as tech-sector yuppies in aviator shades, or...?

It's Google's pathetically transparent attempt to get people to actually use G+, far as I can tell.

Which is perfectly fine by me, as G+ is superior to Facebook in every way functionally and aesthetically. And of course if it was used as much as Facebook it'd be full with as many idiots as Facebook so I'm not sure I'm going to ask for that to happen. Think of how MySpace was terrible, everyone complained about it, Facebook was better, and then when MySpace started dying and everyone started migrating to Facebook Facebook turned into what MySpace was.

He's nothing like opebo in any remote way whatsoever.

That is a serious red flag. My brother was paid via direct deposit working at McDonald's.

Why on Earth do people think Pollo is opebo? The stuff he's saying there is about as far from opebo as they come.

I'm SOOOOO disappointed someone deleted this thread before I could enjoy whatever life tragedy it addressed. Sad

Wasn't deleted. Just merged into a megathread. Here's my original post it's in response to (in response to claiming that Ingress is larping):

No one should refer to The Obamanation as The Worst anymore. He might not be a quality poster at all, but he is now quite clearly not the worst active poster.

24  General Discussion / Religion & Philosophy / Are almost all churches evangelical? on: July 21, 2014, 07:21:41 pm
I would've said "all" if it wasn't for the Amish and a few other very insular groups. But exclude them and all churches evangelize. They all have outreach programs and seek converts, though often in different ways. But evangelism doesn't have to mean standing on a street corner handing out pamphlets or holding up a sign and screaming about how the end is near.

So basically should virtually all churches be considered evangelical on this ground?
25  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: The Present Israel-Palestine Conflict Thread on: July 21, 2014, 07:16:53 pm
When on Earth did I ever express support for Hamas, refuse to condemn them or imply they were morally equivalent to Israel?

Also don't see anything remotely offensive about that tweet.

You didn't quite imply that they were morally equivalent to Israel, but the bolded part of this post was in that general ballpark, although in fairness to you, as I look back at the post it seems like I may have misinterpreted what your post.

For the record I was referring only to synogagues that promote unconditional support for Israel. That's equivalent to protesting a mosque that expresses support for suicide bombers, which is completely legitimate. Protesting all synogagues over Israel or all mosques over terrorism isn't.

And yes I doubt the protestors are making such a distinction. But violent or non-violent they still make up a fringe minority. Ray seems to think a majority of Europeans are anti-Semites.

It was in response to the point that protesting synagogues is like protesting mosques after Islamist terrorist attacks. The point was that protesting a synagogue of a Kahanist or Dov Hikind-esque bent is more comparable to protesting a mosque that actually promotes suicide bombings and speaks out in favor of terrorists. That's fair game and I fail to see how either is any different than protesting anti-gay churches.

Are the protestors in question making this distinction? Probably not. And the hate crimes are also quite horrifying. But they make up clearly a very small fringe in any country, and Ray's claims that a "pogrom" is about to start is absurd fearmongering.
