2 jobs, womyn, kid and an active sports/workout schedule suck the time out of the day ;) I won't be able to jail uncivil/illegal comments in time. If Patrick is ok with a hands off mod sure, but that likely defeats the purpose of mods in the first place. What about Strategist bob, or curious2?
Ok then, I like #investing, let's do it
Only one page of users comes up, there is no "next" button to see additional users. There are more than one page of users, right?
You know what’s awesome about the new system? I’ll never be able to defend deleting a comment or banning anyone if a personal attack is not involved. It’s a pretty neat system.
So as Tracey Bailey and many other dedicated teachers have learned, schools can't improve until reformers confront the deadly consequences of the power that teachers' unions wield over a monopolistic industry, not only through contracts but also through the unions' influence on the elected officials who regulate the education industry. Until then, any reform—whether more money for the schools or smaller classes or high national standards or charter schools—will get short-circuited from the very outset.
Imagine a Robot flipping burgers, continuing to flip burgers as a grease fire rages.
patrick Do you consider vulgarity uncivil?
Since Politics has evolved into the biggest category, why not have 2 politics topics with 2 different moderators. One of the anons can come out of the woodwork and take the other politics topic, or justme or PCGyver. @Patrick what's your input
Patrick, I think we need some modifications to the "uncivil" check again. Some members are using this to "uncivil" warnings from mods. Perhaps mod comments should not be jailable IMO. Works two ways, mods cannot "lie" about their post, and warnings cannot be jailed. Food for thought.
I think you should do away with the anons.
Hey Patrick I shot you an email about my account could you respond to it not sure if its going to your junk mail or something,
the high and mighty want the average joes on both sides to fight amongst themselves while they guide us into our new lives as serfs.
I swear though PatNet wasn’t like this back in the days when thomas1986 and others were still around (for people who were around then).
C’mon now Patrick....you’ve moved politically to the right in large part due to how vitriolic the left has become over the last 5-6 years.
so now you’re a Republican
Patrick, who is deleting my comments? I can see that the comments marked as uncivil go to jail, but who is deleting my other comments, and why?
What things are you understanding better now?You voted for and supported Obama in both elections. Do you believe that if you’re old and liberal, you have no brain?Personally, I believe if at any age you find yourself in the same camp as Religious folk, you obviously have no brain.
It's an interesting concept. I think it is all much more innocent than that. My take is that Patrick just wants to have some moderators, because he didn't want to have to do it himself.
Your presence here is uncivil.I don’t usually speak for others, but I’m sure there’s a few others here that would appreciate if Patrick addressed this.Patrick, is it possible for the forum to return to civility, so long as CiC is posting here with his Sniper alias?
I hope we can both agree that openly vicious racism is extremely hateful and the person who would use racism to hurt other people is probably a person who lacks moral character.
Unless your goal is to suppress free speech, and silence any dissenting opinions and critiques. Maybe that is what Patrick is going for these days
As long as they don't recruit Realtor's.
Leftist have tried to push the message out there that "diversity builds better communities", this is wrong. The truth is UNITY builds better communities. Islam and Western culture are extremely incompatible and that's why Europe is experiencing such social turmoil at the moment.
