I was at a Judiciary Subcommittee hearing in 2015 where Cruz proposed 18-year limits. I think it's honestly not terrible. Though, I think justices should have the opportunity to be confirmed again.

I disagree. A desire to be reappointed would put a heavy bias on their work.

I am unsure how comfortable I am with my name on this thing.

Now look what you've done, Cathcon.



It would be rude not to grant his wish.

I honestly feel bad that more people are paying attention to me playing Rayman than the fact that Enduro became a published author. Tongue

This forum can be extremely unfair can't it? Tongue

Oh, by the way, I'm a published author.

Welcome to the club Smiley Congratulations.

At the very least we could have a single "ban/moderation suggestions" megathread to discuss these issues.

I believe whether you can delete threads depends on which board you are on. idk why its that way but it has always been the case afaik

I think you can't delete/modify posts on archived boards, such as 2012 election.

Let's make a deal: I will forever adopt a R-MI avatar if you'll never mention Family Guy on this forum again Smiley

The idea of Underwood as a Republican is tempting if anything because most of fictional Presidents from popular TV series happens to be Democrats. And his "AmeriWork" scheme, I just don't see him being able to sustain any significant support among the base.

As of Urquhart, please keep in mind Michael Dobbs was a conservative party operative, so it was probably much easier for him than to come up with a Labour or LidDem FU.

BREAKING: Trump to nominate Neil Hardigan, per Roger Stone.

I wonder if Thomas Hardiman has heard the news that he was passed over again...

A 78-years old nominated to replace an 80-years old?

Suuuure.

Liberal smugness personified, continuing in The Daily Show's established tradition of detached center-left political commentary in which most of the attempts at humor comprise lazy vulgarity or pointless pop culture references. ("Hahaha! They're referencing things I know!")

Seems like a perfect fit for BRTD.
39  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Do people who think Le Pen can "because Trump" understand math? on: May 01, 2017, 04:35:24 pm
There's a very significant difference between American electoral system and French one. If the latter had a popular vote system with a runoff, Trump wouldn't have won.

I can Le Pen coming closer than predicted now, but there's no palatable comparison.

What we could really use is a separate board for "Petition to ban XXX" threads and all other discussion of mod actions.  Putting that stuff on the same board that's used for discussion of the Atlas itself makes no sense.  Why are "Let's ban XXX" threads on the same board as "Error in the Virginia results for the 1900 election" threads?


Having such a subboard is a great idea!

She was very clearly troubled and getting worse. A break would do her some good.

A break from Atlas would do wonders for anyone (especially Kalwejt!)

After you, my friend.

I've been on very long breaks, bud.

I was about to propose a gentleman wager of us two taking a break simultaneously to see who lasts longer, but I guess we're stuck together.

He should meet him.

Have him tour USA, experience capitalism....maybe it'll change his mind.

Kim is very familiar with capitalist-manufactured luxuries.

Time to rename this thread.

Done, my good sir.

I've made my position on this case clear. How are you going to interpret my words is your God-given rights, guys.

If one actively partakes in a system specifically designated to discipline fellow posters, said person shouldn't play a pure-hearted defender of oppressed in public, just to stick it to the people she or he doesn't like. Less vitriol, less flame drama, is it really too hard?

As of myself, yes, it would be better to consult such action before. My bad, at least we now have a clear line here.

Hey, at least its more accurate than the typical crackpot EV maps from movies/shows, like the West Wing's abortion of a map.

My brain is still recovering from seeing their 2006 map.

Look, if you want to erase your post trail here, I don't think the ModAdmin wouldn't mind you asking him to get rid off these remaining posts, given you've pretty much deleted hundreds on your own.

I don't like you.

Is it really polite to just say things like that unprompted? Unless you're joking or something.

I don't dislike you either.

Since this idea had been discussed recently, I think it's only fair to see where the community stands on this.

I'm leaning toward "no", since, it had to be said, these threads almost never has any impact on whether someone gets banned or unbanned, while generating more vitriol. At the same time people must have an option to communicate with the team when they see a unacceptable patterns.

Thoughts?
