    In the spirit of compromise and hopefully increased goodwill, I intend to change my Forum avatar as soon as I can decide on an appropriate replacement. I will keep the work of art as my Header on My Profile page, however.

    July 4th is for patriotic Americans, not for protesters !
    The two are not mutually exclusive.

    This country has a proud history of protests.

    The Ballard of RHP

    There once was a great site for chess
    That started to get in a mess
    A man called Russ
    Put an end to the fuss
    And declared it no place to regress

    Bathtime.

    There once was a man from Calcutta
    Who sat in a bath full of butter
    He could make it sound sane
    When he tried to explain
    But he's really a bit of a nutter.

    Diagnosis.

    Since his life was a war of attrition
    He decided to ask a physician
    'Do not worry, my dear
    'cause it's all very clear
    What you have is the human condition.'

    I don't know how exactly the system will be changed, but if it gives more opportunities for non-subs to do mischief by mass alerting innocuous posts who's politics they don't agree with, they will do so. One only has to read the thread in General to see that certain right wing posters (who accomplished making Debates into the JV version of Stormfront over the last month or so) view the suspension of Debates as a leftist conspiracy to deprive them of their non-existent "right" to post racist swill on a private chess site and are itching to continue their noble fight by any means possible. It is, after all, the most popular news story on Britbart and the rest; "White, Right WIngers viciously deprived of their rights by liberal conspiracy".

    It's only a matter of time before the Russ-Soros link is revealed.

    I am willing to bet all moderators are left wing.

    Prove me wrong.
    Define left wing. You clearly consider the term pejorative.

    I was studying this evening (exam tomorrow!) when I noticed a purply-orange-ish glow coming from my window.

    I was just in time to catch what was apparently a penumbral lunar eclipse rising above the mountains across the bay where I live. I ran outside and just managed to catch it on camera.

    Here is the map of where in the world the eclipse can (or could) be seen:

    See the following link:

    Feel free to share your own photos - I thought it would be nice after the drama of the last few days.

    What will I call someone who posts something that’s blatantly idiotic?
    Answers must fall within posting guidelines.
    Just "whodey" will do in 90% of cases here.

    I like the new way of alerting a post. A thumbs up.
