    Re: I fail to see the insult....

    In addition, I submit this:



    (emphasis mine)

    It is therefore reasonable to assume that the standards for "offensive" or "insulting" should be relaxed within the confines of the Backyard, as...

    Re: I fail to see the insult....

    Please check the context of the quote (vis-a-vis the quote I posted, and was responding to). That post insinuated the same. I merely gave my response and one possible explanation. This is not...

    I fail to see the insult....

    Received from KiwiNZ:



    I said nothing about anyone's "right to believe". Nobody's name was mentioned. Nobody posted back with any disagreement (the next post was actually a ringing...

    Re: Lockergnome on Linux OEM systems

    I am sorry to report to you, as one who actually works in the IT department of a very large company, that this is not true. In general, we tend to look for "off-the-shelf" solutions. Spending time on...
  8. Re: Scandinavian Socialism thread closed?

    Thanks.
  9. Re: Scandinavian Socialism thread closed?

    So far as I can tell, it never really went off-topic. Certainly no more than any number of similar threads, and to my mind, considerably less. Even the last three posts were ostensibly on-topic....
  10. Re: Scandinavian Socialism thread closed?

    Why the lack of response on this? Was the subject matter too sacrosanct to be questioned? Did I step on a few beliefs?

    Consider this a "bump".
  11. Scandinavian Socialism thread closed? resolved

    Why was this thread closed? It was the most active thread in the Backyard while open (so far as I can tell). There are other similar (but different) threads that have been open for quite a while....

    Re: Reasons for jailed posts, if any?

    The point was that the obvious conlusion of his premise was without merit and kinda disgusting. I thought tippy-toe-ing around it would be disrespectful to the entire "class" of people he was...

    Reasons for jailed posts, if any?

    OK. Why have the 2 posts now in the jail been jailed? The first was obviously meant sarcastically (the little rolly-eyes is a clue), and was clearly a consequence of the post I was replying to. And...
