    I dont buy #1 either. But that is the excuse that many companies use. Although I *can* sorta see where they are coming from on #1, especially on small sites, such as a free site or a person that doesnt really have much tech experience trying to administer the site themselves. I dont buy the excuse for a split second when its the larger companies. Yahoo used to have a "Discuss" feature on every news article. That was shut down long ago. Same thing as many other news websites. Now, they have gotten very lazy. "Discuss this article on Fedbook". Or they use other tech giants to enable "discussion". What has happened is the big companies started to recognize that we were competing with them. It wasnt because we were reporting the news itself, but we posted different interpretations of the information as it was presented. Now, in the age of Total Tech Censorship, they want ONE point of view. They are trying to maintain relevance during a time when we have the power to spread information, not them. The goal, as usual, is a Monopoly. Only the news they report is important, and your point of view is irrelevant. This is DOUBLY dangerous. One form of Lying that typically comes from the MSM is to "Lie by Exclusion". For example, "the Russian runner came in 2nd place, while the American runner came in second to last place." The lie in that example statement is made by excluding the fact that there were only two runners in the race. Wording is also used to alter perception. Second to Last sounds bad, like that runner got his ass handed to him. But, Second to Last Place in a two man race is FIRST place. Lying by Exclusion and manipulation of wording causes a reader to believe that the person that actually won the race had lost badly. Without comments or the ability to express alternative points of view, or interpretations of the data as presented, most will believe what they are manipulated to believe.

    Pffft... BFD - reality no longer applies. You simply identify yourself any way you wish, and anyone who disagrees is a racist, sexist, homophobe... Pelosi's grandchild's wishes will be irrelevant, the result of political pandering by his grandmother. Young man, you can be whatever you wish to be - just dont expect everyone else in society to embrace your decision as sane/rational.

    But if any of this were to happen in Hollywood, or I daresay, by politicians, it would be a tinfoil hat conspiracy theory.

    I don't buy #1. That was the reasoning behind the IMDb forum shutdown (which really chapped my ass since there isn't really a similar place with similar traffic where movies have their own forums). Other than looking up something about a movie or actor, there wasn't any other reason to hang out at IMDb aside from the forums, so it didn't make sense to nuke them. Regarding disruptive behavior, sites provide features for users to ignore/block other users, which is one of the more annoying aspects of Facebook, Twitter, etc., shutting down rightwing users.

    Pelosi: My Grandson's Birthday Wish Was To Have Brown Skin, Brown Eyes; "Face Of The Future Of Our Country" https://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2018/02/07/pelosi_my_grandsons_birthday_wish_was_to_have_brown_skin_the_face_of_the_future_of_our_country.html During an extended speech on the House floor Wednesday morning, where she read a long list of profiles of DACA recipients, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was reminded of her own grandson. Pelosi, who noted her Italian heritage, said her grandson comes from Irish, English, "whatever, whatever" descent. She added that he is a "mix." Pelosi shared that when her grandson blew out the candles at his sixth birthday party he made a wish that he would have "brown skin and brown eyes" like his Hispanic friend Antonio. NANCY PELOSI: I'm reminded of my own grandson. He is Irish, English, whatever, whatever, and Italian-American, he is a mix. But he looks more the other side of the family, shall we say. And when he had his sixth birthday... he had a very close friend whose name is Antonio, he's from Guatemala. And he has beautiful tan skinned, beautiful brown eyes, and this was a proud day for me, because when my grandson blew out the candles on his cake, they said did you make a wish?

    The difference is when Obama was playing golf, he was just playing a game of golf. When Trump plays golf with someone, it's more of an interview than a game. To determine how much of a winner someone is, like Rand.

    The short answer: the land was fallow, empty, worthless and uninhabited. When a mob of machete wielding genocidal maniacs show up at your front gate, in what way would you convince them to respect your rights as an individual? Oh that's rich.

    Assuming this is true, and assuming that vaccination rates have increased, what is wrong with a vaccine that it does not protect the 90 percent? From the article: So it would seem I have answered my own question from the information in the OP. If you do not vaccinate yourself you may put yourself at risk, but you are not putting anybody else at risk in any substantial way.

    You know with all the legitimate protests on here about government seizing the land of private individuals, one is left to wonder how so few white people came to own so much of the land in the first place. I mean, I'm sure it has nothing to do with the centuries of invasion, domination, rape, and murder perpetuated by foriegn invaders through overwhelming military violence. Never that. None of this will end well. None of it will be just or respect the rights of individuals. But then again this is what nationalism gets you. When you insist on have a violent monopoly through which to compel others to submit or die, this is inevitable. Live by the State, die by the State. Too bad America doesn't have a free market immigration policy so those affected could come here if they wished. But, you know, "BUILD THE WALL!" and all that.

    On the upside: Bryan and mods take note. As this trend accelerates, it could be the best thing in the world to have happen to online forums and RPFs in particular, which had been in decline for years now as Disqus and FedBook and Twatter have come to prominence. Be prepared to take advantage.
