I'm done with this pissed off circle jerk. It brings out the worst in me and everyone else. I'll be over at the sailing threads if you want me. Peace and Love to you all!

" An Egyptian cleric formerly known as the "preacher of the revolution" during the revolt against President Hosni Mubarak warned Egyptian television viewers this week that Muslim Brotherhood sheiks have issued a fatwa permitting "anal jihad" for terrorists far from their wives, which is exactly what it sounds like."

THAT'S the most honest, accurate, enviable statement I've seen here in a LONG freaking time. Many of us have more quietly retreated, but promising cold turkey rehab is a challenge few of us are willing to make. It's like vowing never to look in the Porta Potty Pit. Good luck.

Dogster,

Life is good. Iso is good. NW is good. We need and love you. However, I totally agree, the tone sucks.

We have Music, dance, "how to cook a thanksgiving turkey", Christmas carols, stevenbard jokes, origami, nation building, glass blowing, Obama sucks crap, Bush sucks crap, I suck crap, you suck crap, racist crap, guns and crap, freaking climate change! Dead songs, Brady Bunch songs, weather, nazis, racism, cotton thread counts, travel, rental car rates, food, snow totals, hockey, lacrosse, tennis, badminton, chess, dentistry, beer, sailing, dying, living, hiking, guitar, violin, sex, lack of sex, tuba playing, canoeing, backpacking, bear encounters, fishing stories, scuba diving and always more music. Just saw Willie Nelson about an hour ago.

Life no good without dog.

So much to talk about other than politics. I am out.

Folks here do seem to enjoy flagellating one another in a perverse fashion.
Not entirely healthy.
Here comes the nightly North shore Kauai rain.

I left two years ago, and glad I did. Same 10 to 15 people just barking at each other. Really makes no sense at all. To busy riding, almost 50 days so far this year!!

I blame people like mac and pueno specifically for dragging this thing down in the gutter with impolite personal attacks. On most forums personal attacks of this nature lead to banning. I'm fairly certain those are the rules here but they just aren't enforced.
When you call out mac and pueno on these personal insults and attacks they claim that because myself and others attack oboma this is the same as attacking them personally. How's that for some logic?
There is a fine line you can walk along but when crossed it's clear and indisputable what you have done. Calling someone stupid or uneducated etc... crosses that line and should not be tolerated. Taunting and twisting someone's user name into an insulting phrase is also a personal insult.
Really it gets away from the debate and starts it swirling down the toilet bowl.

Now that I don't mind. We've seen some imaginative and sometimes funny distortions of "isobars", and no one has taken offense yet.

OTOH, this forum would look a lot more populous by > 30 monikers to me if pueno and mac were the only frequent ad hominem offenders. What amazes me is the number of people who PUBLICLY behave this way despite their identities being known. Normal humans would be embarrassed behaving like that.
