Rumor has it that Babs and Timspeed are best friends. I hope she does not abuse her new powers.

I always remember what one of my long lost friends and coworkers said. He was clearly upset When they hired a new female manager, I asked him,Why he was upset? Personally, I thought she was nice and attractive to. He said, you will see ......."WOMEN EXPLOIT POWER!"

If I were about being powerful, I would be in my second term running the FAA about now. I had the tools, skills, support, and the opportunity to make that climb, but not the ambition or political ruthlessness needed. You're safe. Lol...

Just make a disparaging remark against the climate skeptics in the warming thread.


No need. They make themselves look foolish.

Normally I don't like to issue suspensions over old stuff, but I hope HotBlonde won't mind me saying that she is just livid over her seven-day suspension. As part of her argument on the injustice of it all was this two-year old post by DorothyGale, which said she has a "psychological disorder."

I would have to agree that is on par with saying SOOPOO "isn't a nice guy" so I'm giving Dorothy three days as her first offense. In response, Dorothy asked to state the following:

I have been fearful to return, knowing that I would be immediately suspended for nearly everything that I used to be able to say but I also understand that life can get complicated.

It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I don't think I've seen this many red names on the 24-hour list since the original HBC petered out.
The trick to poker is learning not to beat yourself up for your mistakes too much, and certainly not too little, but just the right amount.

One person who said that she was never coming back is upset about being suspended (huh?) so you're suspending someone else who was last online in October?

I feel like I missed a key episode of this show somewhere along the line.

That's my impression, too, soxfan, as I said. Working on it.

Edit: I have verified to my satisfaction that what Axel said was a typo and not intended to read as it did. The thread has been edited and the ban reversed.

Ah, the typo defense, good to know. Not exactly the
Nurenberg defense, but it will do.
