    No problem about the accidental reporting. :lmao

    Why terrible though? I've been really good, just decided to check up on this old place.
    My dear old friend, the dawn of summer is indeed here. Pray tell, is thou taste in the literal genre, still the sameth? I might have a few suggestions for thee, if so.

    Excellent! I will start by verifying, have you begun any of the Stormlight Archive(3 long ass books but amazing) books yet? Or the Dinosaur Lords(3 books)? Still into Urban Fantasy? The Daniel Faust books are a Dresden-esque take, from an Anti-hero with a heart of gold POV(8 books so far). Hellaquin Chronicles(first series is over 7 books, but another begins next year)?

    I'm well updated on the archives. Thanks for the others

    I may have given you this series before in the past, but Michael J Sullivan's Riyria Revelations is a completed 6 book series which also acts as one of the better fantasy novels without much magic present(only hints). There is much, much, much magic fantasy elements in it's currently being released prequel series, The Age of Myth, which takes place thousands of years prior.

    ha, yeah toriyama isnt ever gonna let that movie have a sequel, but it looks like while he was researcghing that role or whatever he actually became friendly with the dub cast? The dub director said folks would get a kick out of the VA they got to voice this villain and very recently he just started following a bunch of DBS voice actors on twitter and they followed him back.

    As a voice actor, he's one of the pretty big ballers in the field.
    And for my part I regret using the phrase "being annoying". It was the closest I could get at the moment of writing to express "posts that you'd rather not want to have to read on NF, but which you quite can't delete either, as it would be a too dictatorial approach to things."
    Hi, I thought to write to you about the posts you've reported and I've left to stand.

    I know you got angry when I quoted the Café rules, but the point of it was simply to show I'm trying to stay objective to the point a human - a being by nature subjective - can. I don't want to start deleting posts or threads just because they're annoying to some, as long as they're within the rules.

    If there's something I'd like to keep an eye on it's continously posting nothing but threads and posts aimed at mocking some country and annoying its inhabitants/supporters. This doesn't mean people can't take sides or drive their agendas. But somewhere there has to be a line.

    There is one particular poster who keeps doing this and I have brought his name up, but was told he hasn't done enough wrong to warrant action. So I stay alert and if the chance comes, collect evidence.

    As for what we mods "are and always have been", I can't speak for any other mods or what they have done or what their motives have been. I myself am simply trying to do a job I didn't want, find unsavory and simply accepted because I have the nice girl syndrome where you can't say no.
    There's a thread right in LOK, made at the same time, notifying everyone that it is also being shut down.
    Well, for logical arguments, Thomas Sowell is a good place to start. He's got almost all of his syndicated column online, and it's easy to find. Going back from there, you can find lots of videos and lecture transcripts of Milton Friedman. These two are older, but the principles apply today.

    If you're browsing YouTube, one of my favorites was Lee Doran, though he typically only posts videos talking about current news stories that aren't of interest to me recently. His videos countering some of the bullshit videos that made the rounds of Facebook a few years back are golden, though. Following that thread, you can eventually find videos by LearnLiberty, which are great, short, and concise.

    You basically want to stay away from Bible thumpers and focus on raw economics. Economics is a science, and it's theories are supported by experimental data like any science. This information, and these facts, are your best tool. When I'm in a heated argument I can typically find that economic theory backs me up, and there isn't a great counter to facts.
    Can you be more specific in what you're looking for, or what you're trying to defend? Do you want a list of not-crazy-sounding conservatives?
    I've sent Savior a warning but you should consider leaving him alone, too. It only takes one spark to ignite a fire.
    Man... just reading that thread makes my heart fill itself with sadness. :(

    Let us toast to our brothers in arms... internet armchairs that is. May they be shit talking with each other and casually checking out sexy angels in that big OBD/KT forum in the sky.

    :brofist
    Have you seen Book of Mormon? I just saw it for the first time, and it instantly went high up on my favorites list.
    No problem Ban. I can understand your frustration with that, and I know that there are still massive problems to be worked out. Just like this one though, they'll be dealt with in time. It's cool that you're doing such a good thing.
    I got interested because of the Point One book, is there a translation for the Asgardian stuff Loki is saying?
