Secret democratic plant.

Wouldn't it be awesome if he came out after November 2016 and said he was doing all that to f**k the Republicans over? Cheesy

HockeyDude and Xenogard are all right, but none of them created the absolute wonder that is Dave's Atlas.

His economic policy doesn't seem to have been very successful either. I don't see a reason to vote differently from the other poll.

It should be 1-2 weeks. That's more than enough to pack your stuff and get out.

Of course that entails adopting first-world vote counting procedures.

How would you handle overseas ballots that can be mailed up to election day?

How would you handle provisional ballots that have to be checked against voter lists by the same people who are certifying the vote totals from regular ballots? There's actually a lot of required cross-checking of precinct data before a count is certified.

That's why it's unrealistic to do it in less than 3-4 weeks.

How does every other country in the developed world manage to count all its votes within 24 hours with virtually no errors? Well, do as they do.

Freedom Values, because defining 'family values' the way RR1997 is is the first step to letting them win.

Additionally, former PSD Prime Minister José Manuel Durao Barroso was actually an active Maoist in the 70s.

lol

Better question: Is OutofBox sucking up because he wants to sit at the Kewl Kids table at AAD?

Yes, and it's getting really obnoxious.

Yeah, that's the most ironic aspect in all that. The AAD kids are constantly one-upping each other and patting themselves on the back for being so good, because doing so gets you tons of "likes" and other forms approval from the community, yet they act as if they were taking some brave stance against an oppressive power. Meanwhile, those who dare to defend the moderators, which is actually the unpopular stance, are "sheeple" or "sucking up".

I don't recall anyone on AAD ever using the word sheeple (I'm sure it would get heaps of likes though!), no one considers posting on a different message board "brave" (what the actual hell), and your need to belittle them by referring to them as "kids" (I also believe you referred to AAD as "kindergarten") is impressively lacking in self awareness.

Yes, and I mean it. I've abundantly seen the sort of talking that goes around whenever a certain type of discussions comes up, and it's nothing short of immature. There are many people I like on AAD (you are one of them), but there is something deeply wrong about this forum, and the recent trainwreck has convinced me that staying the hell away from it is the only correct choice.

I wonder how many posters who by now only post on AAD will come over just to vote in this poll. Tongue

Sure, no problem. Honestly, I was just curious. Tongue

The collective delusion that is at work in this place is truly amazing. It would be hilarious if it hadn't already done so much damage to the community.

As one might have expected based on who created it, the AAD culture is toxic. It's why I've never made a post there and why I don't plan on starting now. It's unfortunate that Lief is responsible for encouraging so much of that, because I like him and I enjoy his posts. It's equally a shame that Lewis has committed so wholly to that lot.

Yeah, we know you just made an account to creepily lurk on there constantly.

Strangely enough, I'm not looking for your approval!

91  Questions and Answers / The Atlas / Re: Atlas Moderation in April - 0.22% Mod Rate. You be the Mod Poll on: July 25, 2015, 12:57:06 pm
Infract 1 (serious personal attack), 5 (serious profanity), 8 (serious profanity), and 10 (extreme callousness). Mild personal attacks (like "moron") and mild profanity (like the f-word) should be tolerated IMO, as should factually wrong posts like 2 or 11.
92  Questions and Answers / The Atlas / Re: Leip, one of your mods is encouraging people to kill themselves. on: July 25, 2015, 12:41:39 pm
Ok I'm back.  All this discussion would have been pointless if I had been able to post this a few days ago, but still:  I quit.

Let's review:  I very rarely browse the boards I'm supposed to govern.  I only occasionally check to see if there are any reported posts I'm supposed to moderate, and before this past week I seldom cared to involve myself in any discussions on the Mod board.  I'm still fairly active as a poster, but as a moderator?  Nah.

Alcon, you're awesome for engaging with the assholes who don't even care to see this forum be fixed, but rather see it burned to the ground.

Thanks for this decision. That's probably the best outcome in light of the situation.

And yeah, Alcon, don't waste your time with Bgwah. He's just looking for a cheap gotcha to brag about on AAD.

I think Alcon knows me a little better than you... You being a person who seemed fine with me until I dared mine one of your posts. Which is ironic given that mining is huge portion of all that you post.

Nah, you were the one who was fine with me until I dared opposing your extremist vegetarian views on IRC. Unless that was when I expressed distaste at the way you exploited the Paris shootings for your talking points while the blood literally hadn't dried yet. Even without that and without the creepy vendetta you've had against me ever since, I'd still be calling out your anti-mod/pro-AAD fanaticism.

Hi, this is Green Line.  I made this account about 2 years back when I decided to first start posting, but I lost interest at the time and only used it for a couple days.  I was just banned. Can someone explain why?

I  think you know why.

Care to explain to us?

At this point given the appeal and further chat, it's best that Nym speak for himself when he deems it appropriate about this matter.

I thought the new policy was to keep us up with the state of investigations and deliberations?

While we're at it, I'll go ahead and nominate one of our most well-respected and beloved members, PollsPuffPass.

Yeah, I understood upon rereading it. I'm posting on the phone for these days, so both my reading and my writing are somewhat more distracted than usual. Sorry again, and FTR I completely agree with your point.
