    asshole, not ass. I believe both men and women have those, yes?

    Odd to think that "ass" in "don't be an ass" would be considered misogynistic, but IIRC correctly it was done in pictorial form - if it had been in words the possibility for misunderstanding might have been reduced.

      hell and back for any reason and if enough people hr you and if they sound all agreeved you'll get the can.

      The rules absolutely do not apply fairly and never have that I've seen. A lot depends on what side of a paticular issue you are on. If it's different from the paticular stance of this web site you can get hr'd and no one really give a ###.

      Just the way it is. Works for everything, I've seen plenty of calls for kiling and torturing people, no hrs. One thread had blinding with spoons and slowly crushed by elephant foot. Progressives aren't so progressive if it's someone they don't like.

        30,000 comments and perhaps a handful or so of hide ratings. A few of those go back to the 2008 campaign when I photobombed a couple of vile diaries. The rest are from people who were subsequently banned.

        I find it helps to imagine you are addressing a cousin with whom you disagree, but you know you are going to be seeing them again every Thanksgiving and Fourth of July.

          the family and extended family does too. Banning doesn't mean someone is a bad poster, just means they got banned.

          I've got lots of comments and few hrs too. But then I stay away from controversy and I for sure never broach certain subjects.
