Into the Black

I have to apologize. I have suffered compound hardware failures today. Barring a miracle, this leaves me unable to complete an update this evening. I am very unhappy, since I have no one but myself to blame for my woes (a story for another time). I'll keep working on it, but a fix is probably not happening until tomorrow.

Again, my apologies. Any patience you can muster for this situation is greatly appreciated.

Ooc, what's the general consensus on why whole posts get Removed, instead of an offending word or phrase?

It's easier.
Good enough, guess I just need to keep a copy of my posts. I honestly don't remember posts but I certainly don't want to make Blue's job harder. Hug
I'm ok with being wrong but I never see myself as attacking anyone, mock sure and defensive reflective, absolutely but usually public personalities like Ellen's Musky Beaver.
Figured it was like a comedian having right to mock public figures. I just noticed another one Removed, and wondered because no clue what it said much less the attack.

First time I recall getting a post removed, it didn't make sense from my perspective and actually had to ask.
It was back when ea was sending people in the forums to manipulate their position about controlling speech in their own forums.
I decided to tear them a new one, and ended with "keep on sucking it". In my mind that was phrase from public discourse about corporations,
sucking on the corporate tit. It seemed to apply in this instance because in my mind it was an ea corpo spy.
About a week later there was a report about ea doing it to control the narrative and ea gave up, once caught and exposed.
But the post got Removed, then I reposted everything but that phrase, and it was allowed.

I'm going to bet there was warnings of an imminent drive failure that Blue ignored. Place your bets as to what happened.

I'm gonna bet he tried overclocking his CPU again, to disastrous results.

No worries. There probably wasn't anything big happening in the gaming world anyways.

I told him that I probably could but wouldn’t and directed him to a shop in town along with a link to a Black Friday deal on new iPads.
When I finally saw it up close I noticed the whole frame was bent/tweaked.
