Just a spinal fusion. It is a common surgery with 80%-85% success.



Good luck. That success rate is a bit low for "common" for my taste. Last spinal work I got done turned me off for life.

Ironically, the very solution that people are proposing here so politics threads won't be removed is the same solution that could have been used here as relates Nathan.



Incorrect!! Blocking a thread is easy, and does not make the experience of participating in another thread you enjoy less enjoyable. Blocking a single poster makes the thread you WANT to participate in disjointed and not enjoyable.

I am no computer expert, but I 'think' it should be quite easy to have only gambling/vegas type threads come up in the list on page 1 which we all click on. .



Itís been suggested multiple times.

And if anyone would complain it wouldnít work, then they can explain how you donít actually have to go looking for threads to be upset about.

All your gambling threads up top. Voila!

Problem threads will be closed



Need clarification. Just political and
PC threads and religion threads
will be blocked? We can still talk
about Bitcoin, and unicycles, and
movies, and eclipses, and Walmart,
and pet peeves, and the myriad of
other topics? Or is it to gambling
only, 99% of the time.

Maybe. I haven't done either to know, that I recall.

Bitcoin and stocks would be considered gambling, I would think. In either case, you're buying something with an uncertain financial outcome.

If there's an ICE raid at every casino except Trump's, I guess that wouldn't be political?

I haven't seen people this over upset about an announcement since they stopped making Oldsmobiles.

That doesn't answer my question at
all. What about all the other non
controversial non gambling topics,
are they or are they not allowed.
