Abusive PMs
Is it possible to block someone from sending you messages? There's a user who is sending abusive PMs to a few players who played a game with him a few weeks ago.

Not that I'm exactly getting upset about being called a colossal berk, but it's annoying when you think it might be a legitimate message each time

Tom Cotton (AR) to replace Paul Ryan?
Looks like Bannon is setting up Tom Cotton to replace Paul Ryan as speaker of the house. At least getting rid of Ryan is one part of #MAGA that I can get behind.

Sovereign rights?
I know lots of Americans talk the talk when it cones to states rights. But how do you feel about treaties signed with Indian Tribes guarenteeing their sovereignty? (What rights should they have? Where do you draw the line? - when this is happening: http://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/us_58c20238e4b0d1078ca597af )

Couldn't there be a possibility to make games even more unranked - meaning that the result wouldn't even appear on your game stats?

Income inequality in the US
How could one argue that income inequality is a bad thing, without saying that the rich are too rich, or proposing a redistribution of wealth?

Let's play a game
I have in my possession 3 small animals. I have preselected a rule for each (I.E if last post before getting locked is on first page then X dies) of course there is a way no animals have to die. Their fate is in your hands webdip.

No Wyatt that is just one possibility. There are also other rules some involve the thread getting over X replies in X days. Others involve the number of +1s on the OP.
CommanderByron (869 D (S))

The question is which rule keeps them all alive? If I get 10 +1s do they all die?? Or do they all live?? If this thread goes on for 65 replies in 2 days do I kill George or Jackson? So many variables and so little time. Tick tick webdip. Tick tick.

Why is a parakeet less valuable than a gerbil?

Is this an evolutionary pricing scheme?
Lethologica (203 D)
13 Mar 17 UTC
On pricing--practically speaking, they're probably ranked by tendency to induce "Mommy! Mommy! Can we get that one?!?!" squeals from small children.

On the thread as a whole--don't negotiate with terrorists or trolls.

This is a fucking waste of my time to have to respond to shit like this. It is a waste of mods' time that they have to be contacted with shit like this and consider how close to the line this is so they can decide whether they need to close the thread or not. This is a sick and stupid thread.

I am not going to close this thread, but I would highly encourage everyone to mute it and not post in this thread and let it die. This does not represent our site and what we do, and the mod team and I work too hard to make the site better and then having to put up with shit like this.
CommanderByron (869 D (S))
14 Mar 17 UTC
Okay, since i made Zultar upset i guess i should come clean. This is a social experiment that a few mates of mine and I discussed. (Didn't really think it was anywhere close to breaking site rules so didn't expect any official backlash) We were curious how a group of people would react if placed in a situation where either their inaction or action could either cause or prevent death. The curiosity was to see if people chose to respond or to ignore the situation. Inspired after watching a training video which described a phenomenon in which bystanders will not call authorities or act to prevent an action under the presumption someone else would soon enough. The "game" here was mainly to apply an awkward pressure; as not commenting, not responding could be just as negative as interacting at all. We were curious if people would react differently if inaction was just as risky as action. Feel free to discuss further, since I thought this would be very representative of the forum once i completed it and revealed it to the forum. You all tend to enjoy deep thinking things like this; i guess the line here is that you don't want to be the guinea pigs. Again, i apologize.

I think the issue here is twofold-

1) People probably didn't believe you and
2) If they did, there really isn't any right or wrong play here, since the "rules" aren't established. Expressing outrage/contacting mods doesn't really help. The mods could lock the thread, but that is an "out of sight, out of mind" solution no different from muting the thread yourself. The only way to actually stop you would be to attempt to find your real identity and report you to an animal rights group or law enforcement agency that might give you grief irl. However, attempting to find and share your identity would be a violation of forum rules, iirc.

As for myself I don't really give a shit if animals are killed, I eat them and otherwise consume products dependent on their deaths on the daily. If you threatened to torture or abuse animals, I would care.

Trumpcare - costs will be lower for everyone
MSM keeps failing to note that Trumpcare lowers the cost of healthcare for everyone by lowering PREMIUMS while reducing BENEFITS. If nothing is covered, then Republicans can lower premiums drastically, but that doesn't really solve the problem of healthcare does it?

So I'm taking a week off at the end of summer and am going on my first solo vacation.

Trumpcare predictions?
I predict that Ryan's bill will fail and that Trump will continue to sabotage Obamacare by excusing penalty payments until Obamacare fails. Once Obamacare fails, there's no need to repeal it. Trump will just blame the Democrats for "failed Obamacare" and for failing to work with him on a plan to save it.

Should Trump's EPA be allowed to override state's clean air rules?
Looks like Scott Pruitt wants to gut California's clean emission standards. I'm confused, weren't the states supposed to know for themselves what was best? Why is fed government getting involved in a state's right to set its own standard?

Call it fake news or whatever you want, but the dissemination of factually incorrect statements is a disservice to the electorate. We all like the first amendment and free speech, but once you have enough viewers/followers etc, should you be held to a higher standard of accuracy?
