RosettaStoned: "Imma Nazi blah blah blah fascism"
Forum: *yawn*

RosettaStoned "Game of Thrones spoilerz!"
Forum: "HOW DARE YOU SAY THIS HORRIBLE THING BAN NOW PLZ"

The level of reaction on the forum to his various flavors of trolling has been... revealing, shall we say.

But, yeah, horrible poster, horrible person, unlike AD or Obamanation or any of the other popular recent targets he actually does deserve a ban... just wish people cared more about his Naziism than about their HBO shows.

Well I usually don't see his posts, as I have him on ignore. I wasn't even aware he was a Nazi. But I bothered looking in a harmless thread in off-topic, and what did I see? I wouldn't have said he should have been banned for it, but if he's espousing Nazism that's another matter entirely.
77  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Study: Marijuana use dangerous to young peoples' brains on: April 16, 2014, 01:26:58 pm
The study conducted by professors as the Harvard and Northwestern medical schools showed that marijuana use creates significant abnormalities in the brain. Of course, the weed "scientists" here will come and say this is false, and expect us to believe them, because they're the experts and the  tenured faculty are the junk scientists

For those young people — and their parents — who think that smoking pot in moderation isn’t harmful, it’s time to think again.

“There is this general perspective out there that using marijuana recreationally is not a problem — that it is a safe drug,” says Anne Blood, an assistant professor at Harvard Medical School and the co-senior author of the study, which is being published in the Journal of Neuroscience. “We are seeing that this is not the case.”

The scientists say theirs is the first study to examine the relationship between casual use of marijuana in young people and pot’s effects on two parts of the brain that regulate emotion and motivation. As such, it is sure to challenge many people’s assumptions that smoking a joint or two on the weekends is no big deal.

Probably none. Children are loud, dirty, and awful. I don't really feel like trading my life in for taking care of them.

You sound a bit less firm there than you did when we last spoke. Tongue I don't get such thinking- we were all such children once, after all.

Ban RosettaStoned immediately for boring trolled coupled with excessive bravery.

I mean it's one thing to post spoilers but another entirely to be a d[inks] about it.

Three sounds like a nice number, although two would be more realistic.

Murder is indefensible.

This is very defensible.

No one is being killed because of this policy. No one is being physically harmed in any way because of it.

The only thing being hurt is the feelings of people who hate America.

Yeah, God forbid other countries should be remotely upset that we supported a brutal dictator in their country for decades. How dare they not bend to our will.

Clearly there has been a palace coup amongst the moderation.

There was actually stronger support to unban him than there was to unban you.

How delightful. Was he not also banned for repeat sockpuppetry?

That was not the reason for his initial ban.  I just think the forum (especially you, considering your past) should not be too quick to pass judgment.  He was able to convince a large majority of the participating mods that he has changed, and he was able to convince Nym.  Give him a chance.

And I certainly shall. Smiley

Nay

Well because they already exist. What about the future? Who will innovate and create the new industries? The workers? They are too busy working.

Workers would be replaced by machines, freeing up labor to go on to more productive tasks, of course.

Like not working? Tongue

That's a cheap attack.

I admit that a part of this is for fun with regards to Mr. Jefferson's alleged insecurities, but I think this is a legitimate question to ask, especially in light of the thread. It might be fun to see the results.

...he insisted we make a poll.

Simfan, had you have just PMed a mod, we could've easily told you that he's from Britain.

Yes, but that's not the usual way things work here, no? I wouldn't want to be seen as denying people their say on such matters. I was going to post this in the Comedy Institute, but that wouldn't have been appropriate, nor would have making a new thread in Forum Community.
92  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Poll: Is Guntaker actually British? on: April 15, 2014, 06:51:08 pm
He is pretending to be a member of the Great Civilisation, and should be punished accordingly.

Yikes, if she's the sort to get herself pregnant I'd say run away. But then again, I'm in no position to give advice on this, and my sole action ever has been to run away and hide, so...

Oh I don't think she's that type; I'm just being paranoid. She's on birth control, or so she says.

Let us know if there's a Lil' Duke running around in ~9 months.

That's a rapper, right?

Seek therapy. This sort of passive-aggression suggests you are deeply disturbed. Furthermore, if you learn to construct a condescending counter-argument, you won't have to resort to insults.

This merited your response how?

The bill was hemorrhaging popularity, and it showed extensively, even among any Republicans (Hell, even Christie booed it in private), and Gingrich didn't seem to care as much as everyone else, so the load of making the bill pass fell to  Veep Fallin, who just gave one impassioned speech on the Senate floor, no-one seemed impressed, even Dewhurst, who was a great fan of Gingrich and his programs, secretly remarked that "It didn't move me at all", it absolutely burned on the 6th, where the Senate Voted against it 69-31, with no Democrats voting for and a number of Moderate Republicans voting against, and absolutely flat lined in the House 350-75, the only Dem voting for was McIntyre, it was a mixed bag for the President, he won out with one measure and lost out on the next before he even gave the State of The Union-James Carville, Crash-Newt's Presidency

No. Only God can end somebody's life no matter what crime they committed. I am for much harsher prisons though.
