RE: Scotland officially bans free speech
@homppeliboy Welcome to posting on the boards. Unfortunately, you've noticed the worst thing about them: There are a few trolls on here who, when they disagree with your viewpoint, will start insulting the poster, rather than making arguments. This is the classical fallacy of arguing ad hominem...which essentially means that when someone can't make a reasonable argument, they just start calling people names. At that point, the forum thread has lost any value and is best ignored.
I hope you post on other threads that don't get similarly corrupted.
RE: What kept you from completing suicide?
Had never thought of completing suicide... If I ever thought of that, I would just need to think of all the great people I have around me (my boyfriend, my parents, my brother, my closest friends...).
I had a boyfriend some years back who committed suicide. The wreckage that leaves among family and friends is overwhelming. I've had some dark times now and then, but I could never have my legacy be that kind of destruction.
Suicide is not a grand Shakespearean "to be or not to be" existential decision. It's about ending one's pain. But it doesn't solve anything--it's surrendering to the pain and darkness because one cannot see any alternatives.
I am not passing negative judgment on those who attempt/complete suicide--I still love my lost boyfriend very much. It is, though, tragic that he, and many others, did not see an alternative to resolving their pain.
RE: National Debt Exceeds $123 Trillion, or Nearly $800,000 per Taxpayer
That's still a huge number. If only the Americans had elected Donald Trump as President in 2016: He promised to pay off the debt within eight years. (https://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/presidential-races/275003-trump-i-will-eliminate-us-debt-in-8-years )
Instead, the person who was in the White House from 2017 to 2021, with the consent of a Republican Senate, increased the national debt by 36%.
RE: Frequent "lost connection"
This connection problem absolutely must be fixed. I'm sure admins notice that the traffic on the forum has gone way down with the new system, both because of the connection issues and the clumsiness of the interface.
Once connection issues are resolved, I suggest two more fixes:
- Restore the "mouse over" functionality that lets one read the initial post when mousing over a title.
- Restore the "frozen pane" at the top of the forum screen so one can go immediately back to the torrent section/search features rather than clicking once to get to the torrents, and then again to select a search option.
Good luck as you work on these issues.
RE: Co-founder of Christian TV network that railed against vaccines dies of Covid-19
But fully vaccinated people have died too.
But what about....?
Yes, some fully vaxed people do get very ill and die--but the undeniable fact is that people who are vaxed are much less likely to do so.
Public health and safety issues should be seen as risk reduction, not risk elimination. People who follow traffic signals might still get into a crash at a junction, but they're less likely to. People who exercise might still get heart disease, but they're less likely to. The fact that preventive measures don't always work doesn't mean they aren't effective and should be taken. This might be a difficult concept for some people to understand.
Who are YOU to say that he would have survived?
@bi4smooth did not say that. But it is a fact that people who are vaccinated are less likely to become very ill and die.
RE: I'm having this issue whenever I browse the forum
Is there any desire to fix the ongoing login/unavailable/error issues with the new forum software?
If not, rolling back to the previous version would be an improvement.
RE: Sex-Ed for 18-24 Group
And guys think that they have to have perfect bodies, huge cocks, and cum liters to be "normal."
The worst take-away from porn as an educational tool is that the models never talk to each other--they're being told what to do by a director. In real life, communication is what makes sex even greater.
RE: It's just too bad to stay as it is
Browsing the forum as it is at the moment is just... Not worth it. It's too annoying. Each 30 seconds connection is lost, then you're randomly kicked out and have to login again but each time this happen there's an unnecessary captcha to make things even more annoying.
I really want to browse the forum, there's lots of interesting stuff but I guess people won't have this bs for much longer. Just close it already until it's fixed or at least revert it back to the old one. If it's so hard to fix make another one, I'm sure there are lots of people here who would gladly help with that, myself included.
I sadly agree. The forum is pretty much useless now. It's a real shame, because it used to be that people posted lots of thoughtful comments--some gay-related, other household hints, etc.
It's especially tragic given that occasionally there would be a post from someone, likely young, experiencing serious depression and seeking support, or at least conversation, from people in the forum. This new forum software has likely destroyed that mechanism.
Even if things got fixed, I think enough people have been alienated from the forum that it will probably never return to its previous value.

RE: Lush cosmetics store kicks out disabled child over inability to wear a mask
All we really know is that the child had an exemption that the store would not honor. All the other details people are adding are coming from your own imaginations!
I would fine-tune this to say that an employee, not necessarily the entire store, did not honour the exemption. (And I'm still a bit skeptical that the event even occurred--neither of the Edmonton newspapers carried this, and I can't find the account anywhere other than fringe websites.)
RE: Georgia Officials Tampered With and Deleted Hours of Ballot Box Video Before It Was Released to Investigators
When Trump got on the plane, he received a phone call from Chief Justice John Roberts, who explained that, should Biden leave office - once he was sworn in - for any reason, Kamala Harris would immediately become President... and if she were to quit too, Speaker Pelosi would immediately become President (but would have to resign from the House first - she can't be both!).
People used to say that the best security measure protecting the life of US President George H. W. Bush (#41) was that Dan Quayle, as VP, was next in line.
(Quayle was justifiably maligned for his less-than-stellar intellect,* but he deserves credit for popularizing the internet: After leaving office, he started a campaign to rid the world wide web of "obscenity and pornography." Millions of people who saw the internet as something for computer hobbyists suddenly realized what they could find online, and online subscription signups skyrocketed. Just a coincidence? You be the judge....)

RE: Lush cosmetics store kicks out disabled child over inability to wear a mask
2 of my kids work in "retail" - both as managers... finding good help is SOOOO hard!
These days it's quite difficult in retail and food service to find entry-level employees. In some places, the only requirement seems to be a heartbeat, or reasonable facsimile thereof. The unfortunate situation in Edmonton was likely the result of an uninformed and/or less than brilliant employee acting on his/her own. The nutjob websites reporting this story want to hint at some Grand Conspiracy to Oppress the Citizens, but that doesn't work. (Note that this story is only found on a handful of fringe websites, all citing each other as sources. While the "Edmonton event" may very well have occurred, it's not impossible that it's a fabrication.)
One thing missing from all of the crapsheet "reporting" is the child's age, vaccination status, and/or medical condition that led to the mask exemption. While these are personal matters that can be reserved from the "press," it wouldn't surprise me if Mommy Karen and the child weren't vaccinated. Even if the kid were vaccinated, one has to question to wisdom of bringing such child without a mask into a crowded shopping mall.
Nine inches? I don't think so.
We're probably all familiar with the difference between "real inches" and "online inches," the latter being inflated (!) A little exaggeration in a hookup ad is to be expected, but there are limits to credibility.
I found the following graphic interesting: A US banknote is 6 1/8 inches (15.5 cm) long, which is a longer than the "average" erect penis size of 5.5" (14 cm) that most studies report:
I think most of us would consider a "dollar size" penis to be adequate...but nobody's going to proudly advertise that.
What about larger? Standard letter-size paper in Canada and the US is 8.5"x11" (216 x 279 mm); standard A4 paper in Europe is 210 x 297 mm (8.3" x 11.7"). How many "nine inch" porn models (or hookups) are longer than the width of standard business paper?
As much as I like numbers, perhaps we should leave them out of size discussions. Some adjectives like "good," "large," or "huge" can be helpful, but I think anyone advertising something larger than average needs to show a photograph. We all know "big" when we see it; we don't need to put a number on it.
RE: A neighbor’s noisy toilet is a human rights violation, Italy’s top court rules
But I also think the idea that the problem is the freaking TOILET is actually FUNNY....
...and that it took nineteen years to resolve.
RE: Seedpoints to comments.
Sometimes I don't know how to thank a comment with good information. It's sad. I hope they do something about it.
You can post another comment to the torrent, perhaps starting with the commenter's name. The previous commenter will get a message saying that there's a new comment on that torrent, and he can then go back to the torrent page and read it.
As far as I know, there isn't a way to give seed points to another user unless they post a torrent and you give seed points to that torrent.
A neighbor’s noisy toilet is a human rights violation, Italy’s top court rules
Italy’s top court has added a new human rights violation to a list commonly thought to include enslavement, torture and forced starvation: the sound of a toilet flushing at night. That country’s supreme court ... concluded a 19-year legal battle that began when a couple living in a flat near La Spezia complained that their neighbors’ new toilet was keeping them awake with “intolerable noises,” according to the Milan-based newspaper Il Giornale.
And we thought judicial issues were messy in the US...
RE: Can a bottom rape a top?
Hi, I wonder if a power bottom can overwhelm a top resulting in a so-called bottom raping the top?
In theory, yes: Forcible* rape only requires that one of the parties involved does not consent to the act. The most likely scenario here would be if the top is impaired by alcohol or other drugs and is not capable of giving consent, but still has a dick hard enough to penetrate.
Also, I could envision two completely sober people,** with the top lying on his back and his cock completely hard (maybe right after blow job), and the bottom straddling him. If the bottom's hole is loose and lubed, s/he could quickly sit down on the top's cock without there having been any discussion/consent/expression of desire on the top's part. From a legal perspective this would be a difficult case to make, but it would still count as rape if the top didn't agree to have this happen.
*The comments above about "forcible" rape assume that both parties are at/above the local age of consent (and that age varies by country, and even by province/state in Canada/the US). If the top is below the age of consent, and the bottom is above the age of consent, then any intercourse would be considered statutory rape of the top by the bottom.
**This discussion also applies to a situation where the "bottom" is a female and takes the top's cock into her vagina or ass.
There's probably some rape-fantasy porn showing a situation like this, although I can't recall having seen any.
