The forum is pretty dead.

It's now 50% gambling posts, 50% bus trolling posts.

I am liking this post-politics forum -there seems to be an uptick in gambling/math/Vegas posts -or maybe they are just more visible.. I don't miss the sewage pf the politics threads. Just my opinion.


Same. I am happy for the change.

Sure you can block posts you don't want to read...but when there are 5 new ones popping up every day to block, you kind of get fatigued.

Plus, I actually enjoy some of those discussions, I just don't have the time. So I would stay away just so I wouldn't get sucked in.

ams288, could you please make an agreement with EvenBob to not use the same thumbnail? Itís irritating to think one posted when itís the other...

(Actually, itís irritating to have to look at a <present leader>ís face, anyway. If you wish to make a political statement, put up Lincoln or Kennedy or Obama or Washington or Roosevelt... My preferred US president is Eisenhower: he was apolitical.)

As a political history buff and button collector, may I offer a suggestion that might satisfy you both?

Why is it that when someone quotes your post, sometimes you can still edit it, sometimes itís frozen?

You can only edit your own posts.

And you have a limited amount of time till its locked. I think 3 days or perhaps 48 hours. Not sure

There is a timer.

It can help prevent people from changing something controversial and say, "No, I didn't say that!"

Forum has reverted to about a dozen active members arguing with each other. Perhaps that is all it ever was?

Interesting. You are banned from creating threads, so you bump one of your old ones from 2 years ago.

If you don't like it here, you don't have to stay.
Beware. The earth is NOT flat. Hit and run is not a winning strategy: Pressing into trends IS not a winning strategy: Progressives are not a winning strategy: Don't Buy It! .Don't even take it for free.

If that's true, then by all means, feel free to make it eleven active members arguing with each other anytime you want.
