Alcon the "Rochambeau incident" was when he changed an image in Rochambeau's signature hosted on a site he had access to into pornography, thus displaying that on the forum anywhere Rochambeau posted.

I don't think I need to explain why that's a problem for others than Rochambeau.

As I've said before, I can't see how Jesus would ever permanently ban someone.

http://uselectionatlas.org/FORUM/index.php?topic=205921.0

Now temp bans I've come around to realizing are perhaps something I could see Jesus doing, but never a permaban. I mean Jesus didn't even "permaban" Saul/Paul, whose crimes against Christians were far worse than the crimes of Tweed against the forum. So any type of permanent ban I just see as wrong.

Tweed should be banned with the prospect of coming back after a period of time if he can reprove himself on AAD and show legitimate remorse. (Yes, I know using AAD as a barometer will never happen.)

I agree with Alcon here: http://uselectionatlas.org/FORUM/index.php?topic=216319.msg4667774#msg4667774

about holding off on making any big decisions until things cool down, but I cannot imagine a universe in which Dave ever allows Tweed back.  Hamilton and Atheist2006 have better chances of being allowed back.

Sad

Don't be too down BRTD.  His existing posts will still be here.  You can still quote "The Group" post whenever you want to.


He was on the forum for half his life. When the same amount of time has elapsed from his last post as was from his last post from his first post, it'll be 2027, meaning that whoever is elected in 2016 can not possibly be President even if re-elected. THIS IS A BIG DEAL.

Thanks for the maps as always, Dave.

Question-Are you making maps for the 2004 Dem primary?  

Tweed's earliest post in a non-locked thread. Wow.

I'm a Moderate Hero on Atlas vs. AAD.  Though the nature of that Moderate Heroism has recently changed from "both places are good" to "both places suck," alas.

Can't you at least give the AAD admins credit? Because they handled this perfectly, much better than Atlas did.

Kind of an Atlas hipster. He left Atlas in protest before it was cool!

And he had great foresight about how miserable this place would become, that's for sure.

Positive/Positive

As I said there, HockeyDude and xenogard are probably the people involved who handled this the BEST of anyone involved, and managed to avoid insane knee-jerk reactions and blatant hypocrisy.

Definitely.

An atheist president is one of those thing that's unthinkable until it isn't. Like a Black president or nationwide gay marriage. Seriously, how many people who have predicted those things in the yer 2000?

And to all the people saying America is too religious, Chile has an agnostic president.

A black president in 2000 was not an unrealistic possibility.

An atheist president isn't impossible, but it would have to be a matter of someone who is really well liked, and then people find out he's an atheist and they are willing to overlook it. 

(And I say he as I think a woman atheist president might be a bit much.)

Actually I think a woman atheist would have an easier time than a man. Male atheists are too associated with Dawkins/Hitchens types.

Let's see: Hamilton is horrified by his lack of human decency.

I mean come on. I don't think that even needs elaboration.

I currently count 10 dislikes to 8 likes, so it appears AAD is leaning in favor of having a moral compass. Will Atlas Prime?

Man angus, those pixels you're using could be put to such more substantive use, like erotic Backstreet Boys fanfiction or something.

Why even debate if you just want to hear the sound of your own opinion?

You heard of this place called AAD that actually has some pretty interesting and enlightening discussions like this place used to have back in the day? And great maps from Lewis Trondheim as well?

Horrible, and f[inks] you for thinking piddly Cave leaks justifies what he did to BK.

That I will not defend.

But I'd like to judge him by the entirety of his posting history and history here, not the awful mistake that resulted in his downfall.

Those ADD guys are always so classy, this must be a mistake!

Who are the "AAD guys" (typo corrected)? If you mean everyone who posts on AAD, that includes several moderators, including the one who posted that thread and the one with the account compromised.

If you're implying that anyone on AAD or involved in administrating it requested it, then you're completely wrong. A poster appeared on AAD with links showing the obtained info from the mod board who had never posted prior to this. The AAD administrator actually edited out the links, which I'll point out is a HUGE deal since moderation virtually never happens on AAD, I can count the number of posts modded on one hand. The leaker has not divulged their identity on AAD either.

Also I'll note that the admin of AAD is not a current Atlas poster, never has been a poster, has stated he never wishes to ever post here, and has shown no interest in internal Atlas drama. AAD is his only priority.

Just noticed that Al is 3 posts away from overtaking Lewis for the #2 spot.

EDIT: Oh, apparently they've been going back and forth lately, which means Lewis reclaimed his #2 spot. I thought Lewis wasn't posting here anymore. Guess I just haven't ran across any posts from him.
He posts almost exclusively in International Elections now and even there infrequently.
