Or enough people know how to find out without asking you.

Re: ***February Low Content Thread***

i for one don't think there's any point in PMing you about anything. I've done that a few times about your awful thread locking decisions and it hasn't gotten me anywhere.

(your last post in this thread is really making you seem like a bad word that would get me banned by the way)

This.

I don't have anything against Elliot, but........

OK, fine, I will delete it then since you are misunderstanding. Let me be clearer:

I am not going to talk about a banning in the forum. If you want to know why someone is banned and how long the ban is you can PM me and I will respond.

Gah I hate it when something gets merged with the LC thread and it subscribes me.

Oh, that was your point. I thought you were just saying "see, no one cares about borodog". I wonder how I got that insane interpretation in my head.

No, obviously a lot of people care about Boro. Just not, apparently, people who read the sticky.

That's a clear 180 degrees. Deleting your posts will not cover that up.

Meh. Subtlety and sarcasm is apparently lost on some people. And the posts are only soft deleted, so that one can be restored if you like (never mind that it was quoted by TomCollins in a post that I didn't delete, so LOL @ U and your "cover up")

So "nobody cares about Boro" was supposed to be funny, after you banned him?

That's a kind of funny I don't resonate with. You see, it's taking pleasure in someone else's suffering.

Re: ***February Low Content Thread***

I'm pretty reluctant to cross post OPs from other forums (goldismoney), especially when they are posted under anonymous handles. But this strikes me as being very similar to what happened to another 2+2er. Someone who posted in MyTurnToRaise's epic thread. iirc said 2+2er was from Chicago, had long hair and was done by local PD for out of date prescription. Alleged quantity/type of drug/s was later inflated...

http://goldismoney.info/forums/showthread.php?t=345308

Cliffs: -Man goes to bar after ball game, sees cop checking plates/waiting to bust DUI so has *one* beer & leaves. Cop follows.
-OP's wife's car rego expired.
-Contents seized incl prescription (Aderol) & car towed.
-6 cops later search house, ask for drug stash.
-OP defends self, wins on 4th court appearance.
-Drug lab still hasn't tested drugs on 4th appearance.

WTF this would never go down in Australia. How common is this in USA? Jeebus every 2nd person in this country has some type of prescription, god help them should every other cop get suspicious...

I'm not on the ACist cabal email LISTSERV but you can just look at his posts prior to his banning and guess it revolved around his exchange with vulturesrow about him murdering brown children.

I'm watching Barney Frank bable his way through this 2009 outline agenda speech for the House Financial Services and he mentioned something on online gambling. I didn't quite catch it and i was hoping someone here did or if any of you know where I can get a copy of what was said or a reply somewhere. Thanks.

Re: ***February Low Content Thread***

In some thread here a few months ago there was a threadjack discussion about water availability in the future. FWIW, here's some projections of water stress from the BBC's site. No idea about the methodology, but it does show some possible long-term trends. Quite negative for the southwestern US (look at Texas in particular), parts of South America and much of Africa. But it's not all downhill, at least in this model, parts of Asia get better from 2050 to 2070.

It's not common, but when something like this happens the outcome is usually worse for the "accused".
