Look at these REMOVED posts. Special snowflake DangerDog can't handle his opinion being criticised and has to get it removed. Just like his hero Donald Trump. Grow a pair, Cletus.

The post was not reported by DangerDog.

Please everyone try to keep the personal attacks in check, especially in topics that get this heated.

What sign does your pup fall under? Use the traits of the Gunnar man, it's the only way to be sure.

Gunnar is more Scorpio than I am. He was born on November 2nd, and I was born on the 21st, which is technically on the cusp of Sagittarius.

Though all kidding aside, I really don't follow astrology.

I asked this before but didn't receive an answer (possibly because it was simply lost in the multitude of posts on the site) so, I'll ask again..
Mr. Tact wrote on Oct 31, 2017, 13:27:
Are her misgivings about the new job or just the prospect of having to move? Is she currently working remotely for her new job? Whatever the answers, your approach seems sound. Although I've literally never been the marrying type, it has always seemed to me the cliche "Happy wife, happy life." was good guidance.

She's expressing misgivings about her job, but it seems pretty apparent that this is really because of her misgivings about moving, and there's no blaming her for that. She is pretty much of two minds about everything in general, so that doesn't help. She claims that's because she's a Gemini, but I'm a Scorpio, and we don't believe in astrology.

That's the fourth time you've trotted out that hashtag for this story. I'm curious about what you intend it to say.

All this knee-jerk over-reaction and PC, social media bullshit is getting out of hand. Netflix have just lost a lot of respect with their handling of all this.

That's what happens when people have waaaaaay to much spare time

Flush men is the new black so followwww

So people should keep themselves busy enough to ignore pedophilia?

Way to put political correctness on blast.

Blue, are you going to get moved before the end of the year? Seems like the process has been taking a bit longer than you'd have thought...

At this point I'd say we won't, we seem to be perpetually a couple of weeks away from putting the house on the market. I've grown to realize that MrsBlue is actually being an obstruction at this point because of her misgivings about this all. So I've decided that the only way to keep this from making me crazy is to do my best to facilitate, but to go with the flow and not let it make me crazy. It'll all work out in the end.

I find this post amusing because alcohol is legal and people use it to crash into other peoples cars all the time. Yet we already tried prohibition and it only made things worse. And the people who grab guns and go on killing sprees are typically not on any substances at all...

While technically that's true, the correlation between alcohol and violent crime is quite striking:

"On an average day in 1996, corrections authorities supervised an estimated 5.3 convicted offenders. Nearly 2 million (about 36%) had been drinking alcohol when they committed their conviction offense."

Source: US Department of Justice.

Used the older stat because it was from the DOJ rather than more recent stats from sites about alcohol abuse (in general their estimates seem to be ~40%).

Sucks for Rodgers coming from what is apparently a 'legal' late hit. I understand they don't want to discourage defenders from pursuing the QB, but I see that kind of hit a lot, and I know it's meant to intimidate QB's and physically shake them.

I dunno, I didn't like that at all. It seemed there was a clear beat after the ball left his hand, and the defender definitely made an effort to fall on Rodgers with his full weight. I've seen flags dropped on far cleaner hits than that. I'd be beside myself if I was a Packers fan.

All of this is moot, really. The real point is that even if we do not agree, it costs nothing to be understanding of a group choosing to stand up against bullies. At the same time, we only diminish ourselves by demeaning them.

Well said.

Also with that roller coaster example -

A person scared of heights might try a roller coaster in an effort to get over their phobia and grow as a person.

Twitter offers nothing of the sort.

Let me clarify my minor point here, which is to agree with your final sentiment. For most people Twitter offers nothing. Most all social media carries some potential for flame wars, but that seems to be Twitter's raison d'etre.

I am not trying to demean people standing up against bullies. I'm surprised anyone familiar with my sentiments would interpret this that way. I am simply questioning why any individual would choose to spend time sharing opinions in a toxic, hostile environment.

What is the upside of participating in Twitter? You share a thought, get affirmation from your echo chamber, and hatred from those who disagree. No one changes their views, and it just spirals into a war of words. Even worse, it's all truncated so there's no chance for nuance or real information exchange, and a much greater chance that things are misconstrued (look what happened here after my 13 word comment). And this is not even getting into the armies of trolls who deliberately foment problems wherever they can for the lulz.

No one is safe, there's always someone to disagree with even the most reasonable point, and people seem to spend as much time managing their block lists as posting.

I would never suggest kids who are bullied should just avoid school, but I don't see why people tweet. It just seems like a battlefield tailored to online warfare.

Why would anyone against online harassment be on Twitter in the first place?

That's a very victim blaming sentiment.

Why would someone afraid of heights ride a roller coaster.

Oops, there I go blaming the victim again.

Well that is the bright side. Unless you do the math on where I'd be if I didn't stubbornly pick the Giants every week.

And now I see that Y.A. Tittle died. Pretty rough day for a lifelong Giants fan.
