Yes. There are many threads on this topic; I advise you do a search.

PS: The concerned member(s) have made a point of indicating a preference that their names are not repeatedly brought up.

Massive HP. She is an absolutely filthy, degenerate, blasphemous harlot who despises Jesus Christ and has made a living off of mocking and denigrating Him; in addition to promoting and encouraging sin amongst the populace (which is all Hollywood ever does). Hollywood is an abomination. If I ever have kids, I will encourage them not to consume Hollywood products.


She's Jewish, you know.

That depends. Is your content-generation algorithm proprietary? You don't want to find yourself in legal trouble.

How many possible ridiculous election outcomes do you think could be viable if over half the electorate was blind drunk or high when they cast there vote, can take place in any type of election nationwide.
For example: Donald Trump carrying all 50 states.
Have fun! Smiley

Hillary Clinton (D) 53% 312 EV
Marco Rubio (R) 46% 226 EV

My head hurts.

Another problem are that a partition basedf on the borders and factions on the map, would result in a Al Nusra (Al Qaeda) and a ISIS state. This are not a viable solution. The only solution of ISIS are the complete destruction of it, Al Nusra on the other hand, while connected to Al Qaeda are more moderate than ISIS but still horrible and it's mostly based on local Syrians rather than foreign adventures. So maybe a compromise could be reached. But still do anyone want a Al Qaeda Emirate in  northern syria.

You're not seriously suggesting Jabhat al-Nusra is the "moderate" option these days, right?

I mean, my concern is that we could scrap it and then spend 6 months trying to work out what to want. And even if we did, we'd create a new country with new parties but the same old faces would try and control it. The same problems, in my view would still be there

Tbh if we want something really challenging then make ourself a new country in Southern Africa in the 1980's, when it was really impossible to govern.

That sounds fun. A country or the country, though?

Can an IP address be banned? I've seen that approach on other forums.

Yes, both the individual account and the IP can be banned, but then the perpetrator can just move on to a new account and new IP.

I'm not sure if the perpetrator of all this gross stuff is smart enough to figure out how to change his computer's IP, at least not for a few days. The banning IP approach seems to work well on other forums. I don't see how it wouldn't work here.

He's already changed his IP from one banned account to the next one (I'm assuming it's the same guy).  He's posting from proxies, so it's not very difficult to change from one IP to the next.  He's not dumb.  I'm guessing it's Atheist2006, since he knows our "weaknesses" here and has targeted moderator-less boards.  But really, I don't know who it is, as there's no easy way to tell.

Ah, that would do it. Thanks for the explanation. So just an extremely fast-moving spammer with multiple accounts and proxies, then? What a sad sack, invading a forum with his crap since we banned him.

it's more that the mod regime is extremely slow-moving

There appears to be a Young Turks movement of sorts but it remains to be seen how much success they will have.

And by 2018 the damage will have been done as much of the Labour Right would have left the party.

An unexpected Lib Dem revival?

Does Gilmore even have a FB page?  There are plenty of "Jim Gilmore"s out there, but couldn't find one that was obviously the former Virginia Gov.

I don't think he has an official Facebook page, but it looks like this might be his personal page: https://www.facebook.com/jim.gilmore.948

Down to earth!

Let's suggest a moderate compromise people: homeschooling should of course be illegal, but people who are homeschooled are invariably creepy weirdos (TimTurner aside).

Where's the compromise?

1989 is her best album but I'll always have a place in my heart for the Red transitional phase because I once had a vision of unearthly beauty while looking through a junk shop in Hokkaido while some nearby house was blasting 'We Are Never Getting Back Together'.

Hollande is officially going for a Eurozone parliament, as endorsed by Piketty and a handful of academics. Seems like a sensible idea, so it will never pass in a feasible form.

Who else thinks varafoukis is going to try and return under a non-Syriza banner?

Maybe they need a compromise on the lines of a EZVEZL. Also Remember the French made the Euro happen in the first place... don't rule them out.

Freedom City on balance though more of one before Ghouliani and Bloomborg destroyed its soul for the highest tourist bidder and made it unaffordable for working people and artists.

Ah yes, the "soul" being a spectacular crime rate and over two-thousand murders a year.

Why can't we go back to those good ol' days?

There was really life in the city back in the times of peep shows, squeegee men, and crack cocaine that there just isn't any more, you know?

The artists were a catalyst of the change, not its victims. They can still live in the city... in Upper Manhattan. Who knows, if they do, maybe 25 years from now Hamilton Heights will be the city's coolest neighbourhood.

The worst thing about not being with someone is having no one to sleep with and spoon. Sad

Like 95% of the Atlas deals with this as part of their default and ongoing existence. We cope.

Well that's ing depressing.


Indeed, but it is (for some of us) the moral way.

Rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic. Sad to see a once great forum go down this route. RIP.

And you and your ilk are the iceberg... I enjoy seeing a cabinet reshuffle but neither President Leip nor Prime Minister Nym seem to have done what's necessary.

The GOP should instate a policy that all royalties from candidate's books etc. during and for a brief time after their campaigns, are automobile given to the RNC.

I like this idea. I like it a lot, actually-  provided that they're automatically given to the RNC. Tongue
