If Blue Sardine can call me a liar, then I can call him a liar for lying about me lying. If that's not allowed and my retort is thrown in civil jail, then the post I'm replying to will be as well.

I get to refute any false accusations of lying. Period.

Updated for clarity.

It doesn't matter how you fucking twist it. My original point stands. Fox News is deceiving its audience in material ways, and as you have demonstrated, its audience is dumb enough to be fooled.

HEY YOU says

What kind of President allows blasphemous Muslims to insult his son-in-law?

In his defense, the Muslims had much, much bigger hands.

For example, Zillow and Trulia are the same company, but most of their users do not know that.

So why does Zillow suck so much more?

If you are going to claim that fox omitted the explicit reason given by ESPN, then don't validate your lie by quoting both sources showing that fox did not omit it.

Honey, once again you fucked up. The blockquote from Fox clearly shows a quote of ESPN cut off to change its meaning. Fox omitted the first two thirds of the sentence as well as the subsequent two sentences. All three of these things materially change the meaning of the statement.

Not even you are so god-damn stupid to not realize that, which means that you are lying about Fox News and lying about me lying. That makes you both a liar and a hypocrite.

Every time you open your mouth, you make your team look stupid.

Dan it seems as if you're implying that as bad as the left is, the Republicans are almost always worse.

The most extreme leftists are every bit as bad as the most extreme rightist. However, such extremists make up a tiny minority of the Democratic voters, less than 1%. Whereas the corresponding extremists on the right make up at least a third if not the majority of the Republican voters. The DNC and MSNBC do not promote the loonies on the left. The RNC and Fox News not only promotes, but is almost entirely responsible for, the loonies on the right.

As such, the right is still significantly more dangerous than the left. That said, there is no reason to not call out the dangers of the left. It's not a zero-sum game.

By 2050 there will be only one corporation in the world. Every other company will be a front for that corporation.

I am not sure why are they so enamored with the crowd size.

Why you should never give your phone number to Google, Twitter, Facebook

I can think of a lot of other reasons why as well. Do you really want them tying everything you do to your phone and SSN?

Phone numbers have become the new SSN, credit card number, and pin number all rolled up into one.

Phone can't even reach the site!

You shouldn't be using a phone to connect to PatNet. It's just a front for the Dept. of Homeland Security to identify the kind of malcontent delusional fuck off that would engage in domestic terrorism. Do you not remember what happened to Call It Crazy? No one has seen or heard from him in months.

Libs fail to convict the Bundy's

You clearly don't even know how our legal system works. It's a criminal proceeding, not an election. But your attitude does show how you care nothing for justice or law and order, only about "scoring a win against the other team" as if America were a sport and the only purpose of our laws is to stroke your ego with selective enforcement.

A federal jury in Las Vegas refused Tuesday to convict four defendants who were retried on accusations that they threatened and assaulted federal agents by wielding assault weapons in a 2014 confrontation to stop a cattle roundup near the Nevada ranch of states' rights figure Cliven Bundy.

Translation: The four jury practice jury nullification. They knew the law was broken, but chose not to vote guilty, most likely because of the politics involved rather than because the jury actually disagreed with the law.

It's apparently Confirmed.

It's not confirmed if you cite Fox News. You have to site a real news source.

NY Times: ESPN Pulls Announcer Robert Lee From Virginia Game Because of His Name
We collectively made the decision with Robert to switch games as the tragic events in Charlottesville were unfolding, simply because of the coincidence of his name, ESPN said in a statement. In that moment it felt right to all parties. Its a shame that this is even a topic of conversation and we regret that who calls play-by-play for a football game has become an issue.

OK, now confirmed. But Fox New still twisted the story into something far more perverse. From the Fox News article
In the wake of the events in Charlottesville, Va., ESPN decided to pull one of its announcers from calling a University of Virginia football game -- because his name is Robert Lee.

Lee, an Asian-American sportscaster who started with the network in 2016, was moved to a different game "simply because of the coincidence of his name," ESPN said, referencing the Confederate general Robert E. Lee.

It omits the explicit reason given by ESPN for removing the sportscaster and that it was doing so perforced. Instead, Fox News misrepresents ESPN as trying to make some silly political statement and callously disregarding the career of a minority employee. This is downright libel.

This is why you should never reference Fox News. It just outright deceives. It has absolutely no integrity.

Now I disagree with ESPN's decision, or even that they should have the right to do so, but I would not misrepresent this as malice.

Furthermore, the Republican Party platform is that a corporation should be able to fire or redirect any employee for any reason. So it is exactly Republican policies that enable ESPN to remove Lee from the broadcast with zero legal consequences. According to GOP principles, this is no one's business except the corporation's.

More bugs. Cannot read property 'number_format' of undefined

Also, the ban list does not show on the user page. If the ban list is not working, get it up before the trolls take advantage of the bug.

Also, if ignore was implemented, the ignore list is not showing. If not, then some user comments are not being displayed or links to them within a post are not working. Example:

Not working on my phone.

Thanks for telling me.

What happens? What do you mean by no working?

You know zzyzzx. He's just saying that because his phone is black.

@Patrick, you should set up URL forwarding rules on the new site so that the old URLs to threads will go to the URLs used by the new site. For example, the path for the Funny Pictures thread on the old site was /1200568/2011-12-09-funny-picture-thread whereas the path on the new site is /post/1200568/funny-picture-thread. Your URL redirection should include the HTTP code for permanent redirect.

Doing this will have several advantages. First internal and external links won't break. Second Google will update its model of your site, keeping your page ranking high. Google does not like broken links. Third, the Google search results won't take users to an error page. Most users will simply close a tab if an error page is shown.

The fucking smear campaign headquarters main web page.

So any evidence that does not support your delusions is, by definition, propaganda? How convenient.

Read the history of the KKK in any American history textbook.
