    I invited him


    He's been off and on all morning just perusing the threads.


    I'm NOT stubborn! I'm RIGHT!

    I think Scott and Fayebelle should just kiss already. You guys are hot after each other, I can feel it.

    Maybe he's just trying to figure us out first....could be a hopeless task!

    @ faye... I hope the "referral" took.

    I actually wrote a ginormous introductory post that touched on everything from Ron Paul to the Council of Trent to the Psychedelic Furs. Fortunately I forgot to click on the "remember me" button...so that epic went to the server in the sky. Yes, I got logged out.

    Which I've now concluded is a good thing, else I doubtless would be thought of as an escapee from an Umberto Eco novel.

    As to the rest of it, I was giving the kid lunch and generally chasing him around the house. When I had a sec I was popping in to read a thread. Figured I'd post when I had a minute. This thread kinda forced my hand. Ripped me away from Teletubbies (wish I was kidding, but I'm not.)

    Briefly, since I've already made one attempt at a War and Peace type introduction and I'm not really in the mood for another...I'm a married middle-aged white guy who drinks too much coffee, doesn't watch what he eats, and follows the Boston Red Sox. Dunno what other labels apply to me. Paleolibertarian? Radical agnostic?

    Beyond that, this looks like kind of an interesting place. I'm not 100% sure I'll be able to post here, in all honesty. The moderation seems a bit more strict than what I'm used to, but I'd like to give it a shot. Besides, I can usually suss out if I think I'm going to fall afoul of a particular board's ToS, and typically walk before I'm made to run. The libertarian (small "l" intentional) part of me means I scrupulously respect other's property rights. Or try to, given that I'm as fallible as the next guy.

    You tend to avoid insulting members and spamming- those seem to be the biggest No No's here.

    Yeah, you probably will need to be much more careful: Thank goodness I'm naturally able to be kind and thoughtful 100% of the time.

    I do like my f-bombs, which it appears are a no-no here

    But although I'd rather not re-live the wearying DA soap opera it is true that I walked because I started to go into full-bore flame war mode vs. the Daughter of Cthulu. Didn't like that about me, but at least I knew enough to know when it was time to go. And as long as I won't be confronting nonsense of that sort I think I can keep inside the rules pretty easily, excluding only the occasional bit of potty-mouthery.

    Every time I see the name "Scott" here I'm going to mentally hear Gilda Radner in my head.

    Are words censored here? If so - that won't be a problem either accept on a credibility level perhaps

    I think the Vision here is Mutual Respect, Love, Serious issues, Fun, Laughter, and Caring for each other and each other's views; plus the fact that youngsters are here! Duke will elaborate on his Views for this wonderful Website.

    Patrick, again, for one, I am glad you joined! You had a big buildup from Fayebelle, now it's up to you to live up to it!

    I posted in "Baseball" just for you since you are a Red Sox Fan! I want to hear what you think.

    ROFL... I think they are censored. At least they were the last time I cursed.

    Has Duke every considered an Adults Only section for topics that may be sensitive for younger posters?

    Some words are censored here.

    Flame wars are really a no-no here. You can argue your position strongly here, but don't say things like: "Are you a <insert derogatory term> How can you agree with what that leech said?".

    The guideline is not to engage in personal attacks. It detracts from the points anyone may be trying to make, when debating issues. This applies especially to political and religious debate, when things can get extremely sensitive.

    Calling all Muslims goatlovers or calling all Christians dumb because of belief in the Second Coming of Christ, are overboard. They do not add anything substantial to the debate. Respect for personal beliefs is key.

    I do not have a high opinion of G.W. Bush. That does not mean I have to describe him as a moron or an idiot. It does not address the issues at hand, which would (should) be his policies. If I can spell out why I think his policies are bad, we can discuss those, civilly. A flame war, will hopelessly detract from the subject, and only result in a plethora of hostile posts back and forth.

    As for f-bombs, let's say that occasionally I am having those as well - but I always ensure or try to ensure that I am not aiming them at individual members, or named individuals. Wit can get you extremely far to convey frustration, in a non-harmful way.

    Practically everything else is permitted (unless people decide to spam porn links and that, or promotes racism, etc.) Moderation is actually pretty relaxed.

    We are definitely not going over each and every post, nor do we send them to 3 psycho-analists, to determine whether or not someone has been too obsessed by a certain issue.

    Flames will be moderated (when it is clear they were meant as such; however you must be quite persistent to get yourself banned for flaming and / or trolling). We will always try to look at the full story and get the perspectives of people, even moreso if it is a two-way flame war.

    You are perfectly allowed to say sh1t (that is one word that is censored). Just don't say that this member or that member is full of sh1t. If you want to complain about sh1tty service, feel free to do so.
