    Good to see the new year has brought about much needed change amongst members… B);)

    Well now, that brings up an interesting question:  Why is January 1st called "new year"?  There's nothing new about it.  Wouldn't it make more sense to use the winter solstice as the start of a new year?  I just don't get it.

    Yes it was totally "prickish".  It's not at all cool to be telling another member to leave.  Who gave you (or anyone else) that right?  And I know BBH,do you?  Why was OK about bringing him into this if not being a dick (not to mention flagrant breaking of forum rules)? 
    But WTF, go ahead and flirt with a time out or getting banned.  Whatever.

    Making a reference to a past board member who also announced plans to leave is the same thing as calling someone a prick and flirting with a ban?  
    I don't see that.

    I'm not telling anyone they should leave, I'm finding humor in people announcing the possibility of their departure.   Could be I really want Halifax to stay.  Could be I laugh so I don't 😢 

     (Again, I'm not offended and wouldn't want you to be censored for repeatedly calling me a prick.)

    The love he receives is the love that is saved

    I think the 10 club should allow people to retire their 10 club number.  After, they can set up a tribute thread in which members can either roast you or toast you…

    The assumptions made are not only way off base, but (almost) as entertaining as the initial @ comment. Unbunch them panties! Or cling tight to them if that’s your choice. In the end, it’s inconsequential.

    Gotta love seeing her in Florida, enjoying herself during this latest wave. She obviously has every right to , but it’s still funny. 
    Hanging out on Drudge? 

    Curious as to why it's funny? Did she advocate for no one leaving their home during this wave? I don't like AOC for a bunch of reasons but I saw the Drudge thing and NRO and it's stupid in my opinion.  Is she being hypocritical? 
    Seems hypocritical to me. But by all means. Enjoy. 
    So be specific for how she is being hypocritical.  That's what I'm asking.  Now I'm very pro mask, but I was just outside changing the oil in my truck.  A neighbor stopped by and said what's up.  Should I be worried that someone took a photo and I'm being a hypocrite too?>
    No. But are you a public figure? I’m frankly not interested in going back and forth about this. I find it funny. You don’t. We can leave it at that. No? 
    it's just kind of odd, in my opinion, this pattern of commenting on something but then refusing to engage about it. 
    Yes it’s my fault. You guys are way better at typing and arguing online. I lose interest and find it a waste of time. I’m getting better at holding back posts to not start an argument then not respond. 
    Well, in 15 days, there'll be one less person typing and arguing around here.....

    Oh man! Sorry to hear but I’m sure you have your reasons. 
    mainly you hit the nail right on the head....arguing....waste of time....shit like that. and if I have access, I'll be here. so I have to rip off the band aid, so to speak. 
    Call a bunch of people a lot of rude names. That way you get banned from the forum but still have membership.
