Social Groups, Public and Private

Holy shit, that thread about the moderation of public social groups got out of hand.

Am I the only person who doesn't know this baby shark song?

I don't think you are very strange to do that. I suspect you will stop singing baby songs when your kids stop being babies, though.

Yes, it's a nice routine, and children like hearing their parent's voices.

Prunes, like dates, add a lot of sugar. Prunes also hold it into a more cohesive mass. I don't generally like prunes, but the work well for this.

Same to you! Although my family's Charoset recipe also calls for chopped prunes and maybe some other spices, and is way more delicious than the standard apple & walnut mash. ;)

I use a Windows computer for work, and a Mac for my own stuff. Windows uses CNTL and Macs use the apple key, and they are in different places. Drives me nuts.

I don't think the poster was talking about direct harm from the vaccine, but rather, why are vaccinated people harmed if others choose not to vaccinate. And the answer is that no vaccine is 100%...

Yup. This is one case where the mods have bent over backwards to be fair and generous to a poster. On any less generous board, you would have been perm-banned about three temp-bans ago.

Fine, so you brought up a six year old incident that upset his wife, someone you've barely met. You brought it up out of the blue, and you described it in crude and exaggerated terms.

I'd decide vaccine by vaccine. There's a cost-benefit analysis for each jab, and i don't feel as strongly about the public health aspect of all of them.

Honestly, if someone wants a religious...

Sorry, I misunderstood. I was talking about ao fan, not TiMA.

TiMA's main crime is that he does nothing but troll. So there's no sympathy for the poster when he breaks a rule. Back when he used a...

Right. Instead of taking the group private and kicking him out, which you could have done, you chose to paste about Facebook-stalking him to the whole forum.

You know what, knowing where someone lives isn't creepy. All my friends know where I live. Announcing that you know where someone lives is creepy. You seem to be missing that important distinction.
