Besides, I've never seen the problem with empty quoting. If you don't want to read it, just scroll down.

One of the more irritating things about this forum is returning to an interesting thread that has a New Post notification, only to find that said posts are just morons empty-quoting each other.

If she wins the state by a Kerry 2004 margin, it might suggest good news for Republicans in PA.

And Hillary is a much better fit there than Obama.

This might have been true in 2008, but not today. If she's such a better fit than Obama, why isn't she polling better than Obama 2012 there? She's currently at Kerry 2004 numbers in PA.

Well polling almost 16 months from an election is usually BS anyhow...

Unlike some bland automatons, Jesus probably wouldn't spend all his time trolling the community board for people he could make fun of.

Ran some quick numbers, Conway carried old KY-07 50.1 to 49.9, ALG lost it about 57-40.

Nice work, thank you!

Can someone link me to posts explaining exactly what happened?

basically:

- tweed manipulates bq into giving him her password and uses this to gain access to the modcave (and also read bq's private messages
- he then asks adam griffin how to go about hosting a record of the modcave. griff gives some generic advice about wordpress or whatever. worth noting that griff did not know about how the info was obtained, nor that tweed was planning to release it without redacting personal info like ip addresses etc
- tweed (as "@modcaveleaks2015") posts links to the (as mentioned, entirely unfiltered) leaks on aad. also mocks bq's gender identity in passing.
- bq realizes pretty much immediately that she messed up, initially tries to claim she was hacked, but soon admits to what happened. all three posters are banned from atlas.
- aftermath: griff is mad about being unjustly banned, bq is aggressively apologetic, tweed continues to be a slimy little sht

Indeed, I think it's pretty safe to say that Tweed would've still leaked the info regardless of what Adam said.

My view:

1. Non-trivial personal attack.  Delete/modify, but not a serious offense.

2. Leave alone.  I don't like questions of fact being left up to Moderator discretion.

3. Non-trivial personal attack.  Delete/modify, but not a serious offense.

4. Leave alone.  This is political speech, and I strongly oppose moderating it.

5. Indifferent.  I think we should have a consistent policy toward mild vulgarity.  I generally oppose editing mild vulgarity, but I think it might be more reasonable in cases where the vulgarity is directed toward specific people (like people who oppose a political belief).

6. Leave alone.  Political speech.  Absolutely oppose moderating it.

7. Delete/modify.  Trolling.

8. Indifferent.  See #5.

9. Leave alone.  Political speech.  Absolutely oppose moderating it.

10. Not sure.  Was this directly encouraging violence or criminal conduct?  If yes, delete/modify.  If not, leave alone as political speech.

11. Leave alone.  Political speech (I guess...hard to tell without context).  Absolutely oppose moderating it.

12. Leave alone.  Political speech.  Absolutely oppose moderating it.

^Pretty much this.  Although I could see why #5 could be interpreted in some manner as a personal attack, so I wouldn't complain if it were infracted.
13  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Do you support the bans of Tweed, BK and AdamGriffin? on: July 25, 2015, 02:42:37 pm
Tweed should be perma-banned, BK should be given a temp ban, and Adam Griffin should be immediately unbanned

I'm sorry to all the applicants in this thread, but I believe I have the honor:

I demand fuzzy be awarded the position of Modadmin for his accomplishments in this thread Smiley

X Jbrase

x Julio

^In response to my maps.  I've been line for over three years, so no cutting! 

On a more serious note, I really would interested.  I think that the creation and maintenance of our official unofficial Facebook page "Election Maps Co." proves that I'm more than devoted to creating a engaging and pretty laid back environment when it comes to discussing politics.

Hi - There is no plan to shut the forum down.  Quite the contrary, I'm soliciting feedback and will be putting effort into makings some changes to help mitigate the concerns.

Thanks,
Dave

Awesome, thank you Dave!

What rumors? Huh

The ones swirling around on AAD.  Yes, I know that rumors are rumors, but still.  It would be nice to have some confirmation. Tongue  [/ocd]

I should mention that Dave has indicated a willingness to possibly downgrade this to a temp ban, though there is no fixed time frame being discussed. That decision now lies with him.

That's great news, and I very much thank Dave for his open-mindedness.

Come to think of it, I wonder how Conway and Grimes both did in KY-7 in their recent senate bids.  It looks like Conway won it, and I'm guessing Grimes lost it like 62%-36% or something.

A big thank you goes out to Miles, who did more presidential results for KY-7!

How would the old 5th have voted with 7th still present? I would assume mid 70s?

Maybe even more!  I'll look into it.

I definitely support a like button, but a dislike button would be pretty terrible. By definition its only contribution would be negative, and it would be used by a lot of posters who simply drive by discussions to s**t it up instead of contribute anything substantive. Positive reinforcement is a great thing, but a dislike button in the hands of a message board community can only be a bad thing.

This.  It's annoying how people will simply dislike your post without saying why they did so.  Communication ftw.
