He has tapped into the heart of a large swath of Middle America. It is actually scary.

Can we please stop pretending that if it was anyone other than BK everyone would be tossing the person to the wolves?

i don't think torie or inks being manipulated in the way that bq was is a realistic scenario

Maybe that just speaks to the fact that blaming it all on someone else's manipulation is a little weak.

are you saying we should have no sympathy for people living with mental illnesses?

No, but finding the line between culpability and not being in the right state of mind to be properly responsible is quite difficult. I believe the moderator action was warranted, and I believe if it was not BK making all the same defenses the ban would be better received in the community.

I kind of like the idea of the US and Canada. I mean, we have a parliamentary democracy right next door to the United States. Maybe Atlasia was in shambles and Canada, by order of international accord, constitutional amendments, acts from both the Canadian and British parliaments, whatever, absorbed the territory previously occupied by Atlasia. We have a continental capital in Ottawa and the formation of a new state run by parliament.

Well if there's a free spot I'd like to be considered too.

I'll be the ass who says it.

Why the f-ck are people doing obviously questionable things, putting their friends' security in jeopardy, in the first place? If you play with fire you're going to get burned, and this whole situation was preventable if people had just used some common damn sense. I actually came around on Griffin with our love-hate relationship, so I know the Atlas is losing a good poster, but I'll never understand why people push the limits for the thrill of personal notoriety.

Anyway, pile on. But there are also good posters here who would never find themselves in this position to begin with.

Well, if Trump can weather this, he could pretty much weather anything. These people know who Trump is. They expect madness. They're getting what they want. It's kind of scary.

Lookin' good, folks. I'm trying to restrain myself with the selfies, but I'm sure I'll splurge later with the backlog.

And I do apologize if there was a euphemism in there.

87  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Trump doxxes Graham on: July 21, 2015, 06:19:38 pm
I feel like we should start getting worried about Trump. He was apparently even hurling some abuse towards Greg Abbott. The man can't have a single friend in the party at this point- which almost guarantees he'll run as an Independent, with his temperament. In that case, 2016 would certainly be lost for the Republicans, even if he got just 2-3%.

Maybe that's the point? Loom large as a giant threat like that and then use it as leverage to cut some kind of deal with the next Republican president-to-be.

Nah. Although I'm on the far end of "normal" for sure.

Those ADD guys are always so classy, this must be a mistake!

Who are the "AAD guys" (typo corrected)? If you mean everyone who posts on AAD, that includes several moderators, including the one who posted that thread and the one with the account compromised.

If you're implying that anyone on AAD or involved in administrating it requested it, then you're completely wrong. A poster appeared on AAD with links showing the obtained info from the mod board who had never posted prior to this. The AAD administrator actually edited out the links, which I'll point out is a HUGE deal since moderation virtually never happens on AAD, I can count the number of posts modded on one hand. The leaker has not divulged their identity on AAD either.

Also I'll note that the admin of AAD is not a current Atlas poster, never has been a poster, has stated he never wishes to ever post here, and has shown no interest in internal Atlas drama. AAD is his only priority.

That's not true. The Hot Guys thread was basically obliterated. Sad Which is why I hardly go, except to watch Libertas keep flying further and further off the rails.

I would certainly participate.

We should consider the in-game story that led to the formation of whatever this country is. What laws do we start with on the books? How did it come to be that the country previously known as America is a parliamentary democracy?
92  General Discussion / Religion & Philosophy / Re: Can one be an atheist and believe in an afterlife? on: July 20, 2015, 03:23:27 pm
I don't see why not. I ground my openness to an afterlife in the multiverse theory. If there are universes out there with laws of physics that we can't even comprehend, who's to say we don't "sink" into one of these universes after we die in this one?

I mean, there's no way to really know. And with this example, it's more about science than some kind of fantastical religion.

That may be so, but Huntsman had basically zero self-awareness. No one cared about a "trust deficit." Kasich will market himself better. It may not pay off, mind you, but he's certainly the real deal.

I'm coming in here with a big family problem I don't want to talk about. Don't know what I expect, but I needed to say something. Send warm feels. I need 'em. Sad

Bush. But if I ever believed in throwing my vote away to sad little candidates who could never win squat, Sen. Graham would have my vote. I do have a soft spot for him.
