Patrick.net is an anonymous forum.

I hope to make it pleasant to use while still maintaining everyone's right to speak and to draw a following for their ideas. I especially want to people to have a place to say things they cannot say in person because of family or work or school pressure to conform to the politically correct opinions in their area.

Moderation policy:

TL;DR If you are expressing a sincerely held point of view with good will, you don't need to read the next 3 lines. Such comments and posts are very welcome here.
Do not deliberately insult the other users. That shuts down actual debate and kills the spirit of good will.
Do not insult the moderators. They have been very fair.
Do not insult the site. Just go somewhere else. This was lot of work for me, and is completely free for you. There aren't even ads.


Here are the original articles that made this site famous:

https://patrick.net/post/1282720/2015-07-11-ten-reasons-it-s-a-terrible-time-to-buy-an-expensive-house
https://patrick.net/post/1282721/2015-07-11-eight-groups-who-lie-about-the-housing-market
https://patrick.net/post/1282722/2015-07-11-37-bogus-arguments-about-housing

If you don't like this site, please allow me to start your own forum for you where you can personally be in charge of its moderation policies. Complaints about moderation policies will also swiftly be deleted.

Please do talk about news, issues, facts, opinions and everything else under the sun. Comments expressed with sincere good will are especially welcome.

Flag personal comments with the "personal" link by each comment so that they will go into moderation where they will be reviewed by a moderator. Please do not mark comments as personal if they are not about you or the others users. Please do not post personally identifying information about yourself or others. That will be deleted, and you may get banned.

If you're not registered or don't have the "personal" link, please report the personal comment to p@patrick.net by email.

If you ignore another user, you will not see their posts or comments. The ignore link is on their user page. Just click their name or icon to get to their user page.

To get another user's attention, mention him in a comment with an @ character prepended to his username ( for example @Patrick ) and then he will get an email of that comment.

If you include an image URL ending in .jpg, .png, or .gif it will be converted into the visible image in a post or comment.

If you include a YouTube or Vimeo URL, the post or comment will display the video.

These basic html tags work: a b blockquote br code del font hr i iframe img li ol ol p strike sub sup u ul video vsmall

You can also surround a word or phrase with the * character to make it bold or the _ character to make it italic.

You can edit any post or comment you entered within a week of creating it. After a week, content is permanent and will not be deleted.

Please write p@patrick.net with questions or suggestions.

patrick.net has never received a national security letter.

OK. Goran has become a large enough troll that it's no longer fun to come here. So I guess he wins.

If this is what you want the site to be, have at it.

Take a look at the blue wave thread and tell me I'm wrong. Iwog was right all along that having him as a moderator will kill the site. I stayed much longer than I should have...

You’re always welcome back. Calling someone a troll is going to always result in a flag though. Now or later.

Now that I see Mr. Magic's post was made her where it belongs, I think it should be approved, actually.

HappyGilmore, I don't know why you're @ing me. I only get the odd posts at odd hours. If it isn't blatantly insulting, I usually let it pass and only insist that posts complaining about pat.net get made here.

The fact is when Trump won many posters became toilet mouths full of invective. It used to be pretty much confined between Captain Shuddup and Dan and Iwog, but then it spread all over. That's why the change had to be made.

I’m glad someone said it. HappyGilmore is 99% someone’s sock account. I would bet $1,000 cash on it.

I'd like to know why it wasn't approved too, it was posted under "Discuss Anything" since...

I posted a 100% true comment, if they aren't allowed to stay, what's left to discuss?

is a housing crash coming?
don't understand why people still buy houses at such insane price.

@www365 My own opinion is that Bay Area prices will decline for the next few years at least, but slowly.

One factor is that the new tax law limits the deductibility of interest for the rich. Also, I expect interest rates to rise.

Well it appears we can not discuss everything.
