Dave Liep pays me for trolling this dump.

He should have paid you to learn the spelling of "Leip".

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?

I haven't heard anyone say anything about that.

Can you link to this "Dave Liep" account, so that Nym can check it out, and see if there are any posts that are sufficiently bad that he might consider a ban?

Taking all of the recent GE state polling in totality, it looks like, at least at the moment, Huckabee is the strongest GOP candidate in the South, while Paul is the strongest outside the South.

I analyzed irregular meter readings of customers gas meters and took appropriate action either adjusting the reading or sending out a service tech to investigate possible leaks.

We should have hired you to investigate leaks from the mod board.

I haven't been around here for very long, but this is definitely the dumbest thread I've seen so far.

Yup. Gully should clearly be banned for making it.

Good point.

I'm sorry that I have to piss on your freak show but Gully is clearly an attention seeking troll (he says diplomatically). His contributions do little good and this thread has become the centre center of a forum circus which is followed by the chronically bored and 'ironists' alike. It's clear that he ignores our advice and is really only interested in the attention. Given the difficulties of his life and the way that he abuses the forum with constant calls to ban posters he doesn't like, I think it would be best that he be banned instantly.

Right now Atlas is in a pretty terrible state even by its own standards. I think we should take steps towards improving it and this would be the first.

I doubt that petition will be necessary- he's already on the ban brothers list.

This is true.  Gully would never abide the continued presence of a notorious troll like Gully on the forum.

Will a bad thing happen on Page 10?

If there is something bad, I'm sure my moderators will be up to the task of handling it.  But do we really want this thread to reach page 10?  I made this website for election maps, so I don't understand why you're spending so much time on this "Forum Community" board.

Thanks,
Dave




Here, happy now?

I'm satisfied with your efforts, but let me be clear.  The only maps that can truly make me "happy", and forgetful of my imprisonment in Tender Branson's basement are those maps that I color in myself.  Fortunately, Tender allows me ample time every day for map coloring.

Thanks,

Looting of the passengers' possessions:

http://www.smh.com.au/world/mh17-crash-site-freelance-journalist-filip-warwick-reveals-grim-first-views-20140719-zurxu.html

Quote
Warwick's arrival at the scene came in the first few hours before there was any security presence, and he believes he saw strong evidence that looting was already well underway.

"I noticed that I hadn't come across a single wallet with money, or a mobile phone or a camera. They've all mysteriously gone missing."

Among the shocks for Warwick was the almost complete lack of official presence or signs of investigation, noting: "The place hadn’t yet been roped off."

Rubio has moved back up into a tie with Bush for first place:

Bush 16.8
Rubio 16.8
Paul 11.6
Christie 10.7
Walker 6.4
Cruz 6.2
Ryan 5.4
Huckabee 4.0

However, let's look at the bigger picture of how things have shifted so far this year.  Here were the numbers in February:

Rubio 16.8
Bush 12.8
Christie 11.1
Paul 9.5
Walker 6.4
Cruz 6.0
Huckabee 4.0
Ryan 4.0

Since then, Bush has been the biggest gainer (he went all the way above 20 at one point, but has now come somewhat back down to Earth), with Paul and Ryan also having gained on their positions from February.  None of the top contenders has seen a dropoff.  It's basically just "field" that has dropped since then.

You're probably actually the most prolific poster at the moment.  You've made over 11,000 posts in just the last two years, which not even BRTD has managed.  Others have obviously posted at incredibly high rates before, but all the others seem to have burned out and aren't posting so prolifically anymore.

I'm not familiar with how it works exactly, but I believe people who upload super popular videos on youtube can now get paid. It may be time for Video Update!!!

Yes, from advertising revenue.  If you were to come out with a video every week that gets a few hundred thousand views, you could certainly make enough $ to live off of in a place like Oklahoma.  That is, assuming that you don't have to spend big $ to produce the videos in the first place.  But I'm assuming that "Update" videos would be awfully low budget, so that's not a problem.
20  Forum Community / Town Hall / Re: So Al is still a mod here? on: July 18, 2014, 06:10:08 pm
The Vorlon is still "mod" of the Polling board.

Yes, and in both cases, if you go to their profile pages, it doesn't say that they're moderators.  (In contrast, go to, say, Bacon King's profile page, and it says "Position: Moderators": http://uselectionatlas.org/FORUM/index.php?action=profile;u=1478 )

However, when you click on any thread on the respective boards that they moderate, such as:

http://uselectionatlas.org/FORUM/index.php?topic=128830.0

they do in fact show up as moderators.  I guess it's some kind of bug in the system.  I presume this means that they still have full moderation powers on the boards that they moderate, and can delete posts, merge threads, and even look up people's IP addresses and the like, but can't actually access the mod board or the moderator reports board?

Yes, I believe that is so.

Here's a summary of where things stand on the New Jersey legislature's investigation of Bridgeghazi:

http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/07/18/how-the-bridgegate-investigation-ground-to-a-halt-and-let-chris-christie-zoom-off-to-iowa.html

Quote
No one has admitted to corruption or obviously illegal behavior. The revelations have mostly been in the form of witnesses either contradicting themselves or other people in their efforts to remember timelines and correspondence. And they failed to force two key witnesses--Bridget Anne Kelly and Bill Stepien--to produce documents. Another hit to the credibility of the committee: they have focused on what one member described as the “rinky-dink” operation to close the lanes, when there are other, potentially seriously damaging events being investigated by more legitimate entities.
.
.
.
Wisniewski assures that the point of the committee is to secure checks and balances and also for the benefit of the public--because who knows what Fishman will ever reveal of his findings? There are questions, Wisniewski told me, that “may not ever be answered by the U.S. Attorney process.” But it seems likely that they may not ever be answered by the committee, either. (A spokesman for Christie, Kevin Roberts, declined to comment on the investigation, but noted that the administration planned to “continue to cooperate with appropriate investigations.”)

“Every witness we’ve heard from and every witness we’re likely to hear from gives us the same little speech--it’s thirty seconds long. They say, ‘I didn’t know anything about it,’ and then they spend the next five or six hours repeating that speech,” Carroll said, dismissively.

Now, that doesn't mean that nothing will come of this.  The "real" investigation is being done by US Attorney Paul Fishman.  But the thing is that his office doesn't seem to be leaking to the media, so no one really knows what they've got, or what his timeline is for the investigation.  In lieu of any imminent indictment, Christie seems be going full speed ahead in Iowa, which he's currently visiting, and of which he says "I will be back a lot":

Christie, during his trip to Iowa, says that he'll be returning to the state frequently:

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/07/18/us/politics/christie-in-iowa-i-will-be-back-a-lot.html?_r=0

Quote
And he assured the locals that, no, this would not be his last visit to Iowa. “I will be back,” he said. “I will be back a lot.”

There was also this exchange:

Quote
Mr. Christie, the Republican governor of New Jersey, reveled in repeated pleas to run for president, nodding as a middle-aged man here told him that he alone possessed the “rough-and-tumble style” necessary to tame Washington.

“You know how to play that game,” the man said.

“I do,” Mr. Christie replied.

So I've seen quite a few stories about Australian passengers, but none about American passengers.  Given that the supposed 20+ American passengers weren't listed in Malaysia Airlines' accounting of the nationalities of the passengers, are we to conclude that that number was just a screw-up?  Were there any American passengers as far as we know?
