Egg sammich with Ham and Cheese..
And I'm about to come out of my cave, and start smacking members like salmon out of an Oregon river.
If it's not an out-and-out political thread, it's thread being turned political.
We know the rules. We've all read the sticky regarding the posting of political content, right?
Still, it's popping up constantly, this problem. I don't like problems. I don't like coming home from busting my hienie at work in 110+ heat to find that those who like to skirt the bitter edge of the line (and often way beyond it) have taken advantage of the staff working and run ape-$hit with political commentary. It's happening enough to have me write this "letter of caution".
I've already had to ban someone today for a month, and likely lost a friend I've had for years.
Re politics: Not a damn soul will sway anybody up in here their way on much of anything....
At the risk of incurring wrath, I will try to speak truth to power. You may unknowingly be part of the problem. As mentioned by others the whole 'Snowflake/SJW/LBGT' bashing that goes on here is in its very nature political.... and you have done your share in starting posts of this nature. So others believe that it must be ok and non-political.
But its not. It took me a while to understand, by your tough tutelage, that posting seemingly benign science articles will indeed be twisted into a political contest. You were right, so now I refrain from posting anything in that vain. The same goes with the minority bashing around here. It's tiring and really beneath everyone here (I hope).
Rich, was just pointing this out to Bill H., who crossed the line. IMO, you banned the wrong guy.
