    eddyatwork: It's not my fault you don't have enough cats to be a moderator.

    Yes. You sound fat.

    sabine: Hmm. It looks fairly straightforward to add wifi networks programmatically, so I guess that transforms the problem into "how do I bulk install an APK onto a bunch of tablets?".

    Yeah, which unfortunately isn't much easier. They run a cordova application that I built, but for the most part we never change the binary and it just pulls html from our webserver and presents it as an app. Replacing the apk would probably be the easiest option.

    I was considering what to have for dinner. I'm going to have a Hungry Man turkey, stuffing, and potatoes dinner. It says ONE POUND OF FOOD right on the box! Personally that's why I like Swanson's. Unlike those wimpy ass little Lean Cuisine dinners that women eat and they tout low calories, Hungry Man dinners simply tell you how much the food weighs. That's how all food should be sold, not this Healthy Choice crap that tastes like the cardboard box it comes in.

    osirisothedead: So can we have actual community moderation yet?

    Yeah, grahams: , id like to second this motion. Before flash started his whole "it not fair" spiel, we had v$, and if you look back, he stirred more shit and generated more ire than any troll since. Yet today we love him. If you recall, v$ got communkty moderated to hell an back, including by you. I remember him offfering money to have his face as the banner. Then came flash and you decided to become magnamious. Flash lied. He lied by ommision. Flash would claim he was being bullied as soon as he realosed his argument had been lost. But hes gone now. I miss him. Now we have phil. I will wager that irl Phils about as conservative as I am. He is a troll. How do I tell, well please note phil never defends his positions, he just jumps to another tslking point. Thats trolling. Compare that to alexandra., now she believed, and she would leave a thread really upset. Phils just a troll. He doesnt belive any of the shit he says. Take a look at how he argues.

    Let the community moderate. Just for a while.

    I worry that i'll have a whole bunch of shit zapped that makes no sense, whenever it's perceived that I'm giving the community any kind of leeway to exercise judgement some people take it as an invitation to go off the deep end and zap tbs for "being drunk" or whatever.

    In the death threat situation it the only slightly questionable thing is whether an actionable threat against a pseudo anonymous entity is really actionable. The law varies by state and in any case I have no idea if czar knows bake in real life.

    Ok, so a post gets zapped. So what? No one is submitting the next great american novel in thier posts. Its a post. A post being zapped will not deprive humanity of anything much.. It being zapped just means enoigh people didnt like it. Thats how communities work. If you want to take the edge off, take away the anonimity from strikes. Hell, make itso that an unstrike Iis worth two strikes, or even three strikes. That way, kne symapthetic poster can counter three unwarranted strikers.

    But that's not typical of what gets zapped (or at least what gets appealed).

    Most of the time there's an active discussion with a bunch of replies back and forth and someone will zap a bunch of tbs posts. Even though other users are clearly engaging him.

    Maybe we could relax the rules on zapping if any reply to a post (by another user) would could as an unzap?

    A lot of the time I end up taking the full 48hrs before I even get round to processing appeals, that means appeals are a lot more for idealogical reasons now as the stfu will often be nearly gone.

    Of course if you waste my time with a stupid appeal then i'll double the penalty and restart the clock.

    It's an interesting model since it'd make it very hard to strike posts that generate replies and traffic yet still not raise the burden at all for posts that are truly strikeable.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think a lot of the people who want "freedom to moderate as a community" would still consider striking posts that others are responding to, so maybe this wouldn't help

    's what a downvote's for: telling someone they're a fuckhead. You can still have a conversation with a fuckhead if you're masochistic.

    A strike's for when someone's gone beyond mere fuckheadedness and into territory that's actively harmful, so by definition you should NOT talk to someone you're striking. Conversation's over.

    Actually...it'd probably put the load on the server up, but taking away the ability to strike if you respond, or taking away the ability to respond if you strike, would make it very clear what's what. Strip out the reply line, as it were.

    I favor the even more active approach of a reply actually counting as a pre-emptive unstrike. Then you wouldn't be able to strike or unstrike that comment separately.

    That way if three people are engaging TBS then it'd take 6 strikes to take out one of his comments. Unfortunately knowing how those users sometimes operate I fear they'd just seek out other random comments in other threads that don't have replies and strike those instead.

    Yeah flash was smart. He'd appeal very strategically so I could only see a small subset of posts, so he'd post something like

    "you're a pedo"

    followed by

    "no really, you are"

    and then only appeal the second one of those.

    This argument runs a bit close to the "forced FORCED" pseudo-meme around here. I'm lacking a lot of details, but who posts and how they feel about that is a negotiation. TrollyTrollerson ran UserX off, but somehow couldn't break all the members of the cabal, who are still around to talk about it? That argument itself could turn a little concern trolly.

    And then there is the perspective that the site demands some kind of "utility". And anyone who detracts from the "usefulness" of the site is some breed of troll. That's a nice argument. Especially if you control the definition of utility. Tech talk? Impurtent inernet stuffs! Glorious truths about the demise of the federal reserve that the media is afraid to report? DEM R PONIES!

    I tend to believe the site exists for amusement. To amuse me, and maybe others. However, that is pretty trolly by other definitions and admittedly self-centered. My self-absorption is held in check by my experience with anonyments. I am less than half of any communication around here. ("Anonymity" is my surest path to double-digit cool points or an inexplicable hate-fueled tirade.) I keep that in mind: nothing here is about me.

    As Sabine has noted, even one's favorite users are capable of the most egregious shit. The only thing constant are "the rules", and yet taking a considered approach toward them is the art of the troll.

    Y'know, I wouldn't mind a Windows phone, but I'm afraid I'm too entrenched in the Android setup. I have yet to find a major complaint about my S3.

    And I'm cheap. I don't want to replace this until it's dead.

    I guess it depends on how you want to define "engage", but let's say user A posts "I'm going to pee in your mouth you fat cunty bitch and you know you want it because all you bitches love a real man with balls".

    If you ever decide you want a ghostwriter for your life, holla. I can think of about 20 fairly bodacious responses to that that range from subtly passive-aggressive to flat-out glow-in-the-dark snark.

    For example:

    [look down at your stomach]
    [look slowly back up at her]
    [remember the scene when Bambi learns that his mother has died and make that sad doe-eyed face]

    Yeah, you might be onto something there, hon. I guess maybe I'm using peanut butter as a substitute for quality time with you.

    cannonhawk: “‎’Slut’ is attacking women for their right to say yes. ‘Friend Zone’ is attacking women for their right to say no.

    Enh? "Frigid" is an attack. "FriendZone"... is kind of a descriptor of a social phenomena. Strangers have the potential of sexual attraction because they are unknown. Friends do not because they are thoroughly known, yet found wanting. There is no way the FriendZoned individual can hope regain status as a potential sexual partner. It's not "saying no" so much as "precluding the possibility".
    You really only have one shot at a relationship. When we "look for a date", we mean "cast our social net wider" not "reconsider the merits of people we've rejected".

    Met due to mutual friends and attended many of the same parties over a stretch of a few years. Zero romantic interest on either side, didn't even particularly like one another, but acted cordial and polite. Ended up accidentally stranded on what was supposed to be a group outing and turned into an involuntary first date, and the rest as they say is history.

    I don't know that it helps your quandary, but I think those two are categorically different. TBS has periods where he goes off the rails, ostensibly honestly and relatively involuntarily. He also has periods of lucid contribution. Phil, OTOH, does what he does purposefully, consistently, and insincerely to manipulate discussion.

    Interesting. Thank you. I still don't get the "20+ years". Still curious. "Mutual friends" implies post-college socializing. Curious about the stranding. That can bond people... particularly if it's negative. I'm not convinced "dating" is a productive practice. It seems to encourage the type of behavior ill-conducive to a stable relationship.

    Group (including him) met for dinner. She couldn't make it that early, but was to join later for drinks and billiards at a different predetermined location. Pre-cellphone era, so it was impossible to renegotiate plans on the fly. Dinner ran late, he offered to make the meet on time and tell her the rest of the group was running late. The rest of them never showed, or never found us. Meeting spot was 渋谷ハチ公, which can be a bit of a zoo.

    Oh. And. I got to spend time with Miss O today. She was born almost 3 months early, after her brother miscarried. Dreadful time for the poor mother. Concerns, among other things, were the placenta left behind from the boy child.

    Mother and Miss O are doing great. Miss O is still on oxygen, and the Dr is in his 70's and calls her every couple of days to see how they are doing. I held her, she clamped on to my fingers, and appears to be able to develop normally, with no conditions that can occur with early birth.

    I am Happy
