RE: Presidential election.
Wow, had I known, I would have hand written-in SuperSleeper for President on my Ballot.   Coffee
Or at least first dog walker for the first dog.
Woof woof, and pay no attention to my avatar.  Oh-jeez 
Well said boss.

BTW...
This is pretty interesting:

Watch the The Epoch Times adds too - also very interesting stuff.

And this one is pretty dry, but very good, for the data junkies and techno-nerds of the group: (Be forewarned of a little colorful language outburst)

Thanks Melman... just to spring-board off your statement a bit... allow me to say some things to our members:


To be clear, I'm not calling for a "truce" where all sides quit discussing politics or the elections.  I'm just appealing to all participants to not take heated political discussion as a personal attack, nor equate someone's critique of a particular politician as some sort of attack upon another forum member.

I'm simply recommending that everyone involved have very thick skin if they want to read what's posted here, and don't come to "the management" to ask us to restrict another forum member simply because you can't articulate your own points in a convincing manner, so you instead ask the staff here to "silence your opposition".  EITHER defend your own position yourself with convincing, rational, civil words, OR don't bother reading what's posted in Off-Topic. 

The staff here isn't going to do your work for you, nor will we subject our members to censorship, regardless of where they are on the political spectrum.  The only time we edit or remove posts is when someone violates a forum rule.

This is the way Apnea Board has operated since it's beginning over 16 years ago in 2004.  And no, I don't think (as some have written to me) that allowing heated political discussion "will destroy the forum".  It didn't destroy the forum YET anyway (in over 16 years), and I sincerely doubt that allowing open speech here now will have any long term negative effects, other than a few unbalanced members losing their sanity because they allowed someone else to get under their skin, and allowed opposing opinions to trigger them into an emotional frenzy.  If they allow such things, that's their own fault.


So, like I said, feel completely free to continue the conversation.  Simply keep all the political discussion here (in the Off-Topic Forum) and don't let it spill over into other areas of Apnea Board.


Thanks

You can read my opinion in the next Pew Poll. While my advice is generally worth 2-cents, they pay me 5-bucks...so much for my worthless opinions.

RE: Presidential election.
Just to give an example of what's allowed and what's not allowed...

Personal attacks against other forum members are not allowed.  Personal attacks against politicians is allowable.

Example:


Allowed:
Member6677 says, "Congressman Smith is the most corrupt immoral representative we've ever had!"


Not allowed:
Member4953 replies, "You're an idiot moron if you think that about Congressman Smith!"


See the difference here?  In the first example, you're not personally attacking a forum member.  In the second example, you are personally attacking a forum member

Okay, enough lessons for today.   Too-funny

RE: Presidential election.
P&R is allowed on another forum I'm a member of. There, is does get mean & nasty. No holds are barred there. It's basically a take no prisoners mentality. 

Members that you thought you knew rather well, end up showing their true colors. All of a sudden, you are no longer on speaking terms with them, and you end up being bitter enemies. 

And yet, another forum I'm a member of, did away with P&R just because of the grief it causes. The forum no longer even tolerates subjects / topics even remotely being P&R. You get a warning or two, and then banned if you continue.

RE: Presidential election.
Just a suggestion, but if a member here finds themselves getting all upset and emotional about what's discussed in the Off-Topic forum, probably the best thing they could do is leave here and go to the Main Forum or the Software Support Forum and see if they can find someone else to help with their problems.  Get your thoughts off yourself and your own issues and focus on the needs of others.

Helping other people has a way of calming you down, giving you perspective and helps you realize that in the vast scheme of things, all that's going to matter in the end is how many folks you've helped along the way.

Yeah, I know... more lessons... last one for the day, I promise.   Too-funny

RE: Presidential election.
It's OK Boss. You're allowed as much lesson time as you want. It served as a good reminder to me that political talk is an easy way to drive others away and to instill newfound voluntary madness.

It's all good and the election is over, but you'd never know it by all the fussing that is still going on.  Oh-jeez
