Host Poll [View all] Renew Deal Dec 2014 OP
I pass because I don't really understand the purpose of hosts. nt Erich Bloodaxe BSN Dec 2014 #1
No one does, which is why all but Renew Deal should be removed. cleanhippie Dec 2014 #2
That's illogical. If no one understands, there would be no host. rug Dec 2014 #35
I've probably MILDLY disagreed with this sentiment Dorian Gray Dec 2014 #221
Depends on the group. Renew Deal Dec 2014 #4
Hmm. Erich Bloodaxe BSN Dec 2014 #16
Has anyone asked you if you want to be solely responsible okasha Dec 2014 #185
Honestly Dorian Gray Dec 2014 #222
As I recall, the last time a thread went totally out of control okasha Dec 2014 #224
That may be true Dorian Gray Dec 2014 #234
I think a run off until there is a majority opinion would be a good idea. Warren Stupidity Dec 2014 #3
I support TexasTowlie! I think he would make a fine host. hrmjustin Dec 2014 #5
He/she is great in the Texas group LostOne4Ever Dec 2014 #11
I understand your view point but i never really found ut a problem to wait hrmjustin Dec 2014 #13
4 sure LostOne4Ever Dec 2014 #15
I think 5 people for such a contentious group is needed. hrmjustin Dec 2014 #18
Aside from the recent host malfunction when was the last time a post was locked here? Warren Stupidity Dec 2014 #23
I think Dorian Gray Dec 2014 #223
I think "preventing bias" is a good thing. okasha Dec 2014 #184
This really doesn't have anything to do with hosting at this point. cbayer Dec 2014 #188
That's why posting this in Interfaith is just as bad. Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #194
No it doesn't do that at all. cbayer Dec 2014 #198
As I've discussed, I have compromised Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #201
And, btw, "let them have it"? Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #209
I have a question for you. cbayer Dec 2014 #6
Sorry, just saw your reply in the other thread. cbayer Dec 2014 #7
We stopped that practice when the 5 post suspensions started Renew Deal Dec 2014 #133
Did you make a decision that blocking was off the table? cbayer Dec 2014 #136
At the time yes. Renew Deal Dec 2014 #138
I'm not sure I agree with that, but I have no data to show it would be otherwise. cbayer Dec 2014 #140
How did we ever survive? Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #155
How did we ever survive what? cbayer Dec 2014 #158
You said you don't want to live in a system where hosts don't block. Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #160
I was mistaken, but I still think they have the option and I would expect them to use it. cbayer Dec 2014 #165
And in the Lord of the Flies there was a small group working for the common good. Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #167
You continue to completely miss my point about the current hosts. cbayer Dec 2014 #173
Or you don't get it. Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #177
And being shitheads towards each other is a particular problem in this group. cbayer Dec 2014 #178
Well, again, I would argue that using LotF for that Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #179
Keep teaching the novel. I could not care less. cbayer Dec 2014 #181
literature is like the bible, you can just toss out the bits you don't like, Warren Stupidity Dec 2014 #199
That's pretty much all we covered Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #207
This is why a new host is needed. rug Dec 2014 #211
I'll do whatever the group wants Renew Deal Dec 2014 #132
I am confident that you could handle it as well. cbayer Dec 2014 #135
One of my concerns okasha Dec 2014 #189
It doesn't make any difference. cbayer Dec 2014 #190
"If people are willing to go out and recruit non-participants to vote in this meaningless poll" trotsky Dec 2014 #193
Well there was that thread in Interfaith. Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #195
Oh right, it's OK when her team does it. trotsky Dec 2014 #196
And when specific people do it Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #197
Likely true. okasha Dec 2014 #208
I'll tell ya what....I'll be the sole host. A HERETIC I AM Dec 2014 #8
Hey hey hey now. AtheistCrusader Dec 2014 #236
The operative word there is "was". A HERETIC I AM Dec 2014 #238
So, in other words... NeoGreen Dec 2014 #244
You talk like he doesn't do that now. n/t Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #250
Well, as long as the towel doesn't read... NeoGreen Dec 2014 #256
Don't we need consensus to change the rules? hrmjustin Dec 2014 #9
If this poll says we should just have one or none Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #10
No. Consensus to me would be both sides agreeing the rules need to be changed. hrmjustin Dec 2014 #12
So it's never going to change, then? Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #14
This, imo, is a partisan battle in which two sides are likely to be highly invested cbayer Dec 2014 #19
"The bat sign has obviously gone up" Warren Stupidity Dec 2014 #24
In a non-safe haven group, there is no need to block users. Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #25
I disagree. Members have been blocked from this group previously. cbayer Dec 2014 #29
And I'm fine with one host where I would rather have none. Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #32
Scott was the last one blocked. for one month. hrmjustin Dec 2014 #33
When was that? Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #39
No before. After the 90 day rule came in we decided to just let the software work its will. hrmjustin Dec 2014 #47
That's not a compromise at all, unless you are compromising with your cbayer Dec 2014 #34
Of course it's a compromise. Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #41
It's a compromise with those who want one host, not with those that want to cbayer Dec 2014 #45
Last block was in 2013 as per Justin above. Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #53
I'm not sure, but I will concede that you are likely correct. cbayer Dec 2014 #55
So we keep RD Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #57
You are so funny. You are again acting like you are making a big compromise. cbayer Dec 2014 #60
I'm already compromising. Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #64
I reject your "compromise" as a farce. cbayer Dec 2014 #65
I reject your "compromise" as you on a power trip. Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #67
Additionally, though you dismiss it as the bat signal Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #71
I'm not referring to atheists at all, but you knew that. cbayer Dec 2014 #73
So what did you mean with the bat signal going up? Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #75
I love it when you are coy! cbayer Dec 2014 #79
Batman is also male, white and economically privileged. rug Dec 2014 #96
And he has a cave! cbayer Dec 2014 #99
But he has only one sidekick. rug Dec 2014 #104
Well, that is just showing how little you know about Batman. Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #110
Who did he have besides Robin? rug Dec 2014 #112
I guess it depends on how you define sidekick. Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #118
What's the consensus definition? rug Dec 2014 #121
Well played Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #125
Depends which Batgirl Prophet 451 Dec 2014 #233
And yet he fights for the poor and downtrodden regardless of race or gender. Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #100
I'll give you comic books and you give me the New Testament. rug Dec 2014 #102
I'll give you New Testament only on being currently involved with it. Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #105
Here's one: Without googling, what was The Atom's superpower? rug Dec 2014 #108
That's a good question to decide understanding. Kudos Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #113
He is my all-time favorite superhero. rug Dec 2014 #116
He may make a comeback? Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #120
I hope. rug Dec 2014 #123
He's turned up on the small screen now Prophet 451 Dec 2014 #232
I'll have to look that up. rug Dec 2014 #237
NP, dude Prophet 451 Dec 2014 #408
What is the difference? tradewinds Dec 2014 #351
The intelligence of the reader. rug Dec 2014 #355
You're right. tradewinds Dec 2014 #377
But would not grasp the elements of grammar and spelling. rug Dec 2014 #395
Of course, the truly intelligent of us know there is only so much value to tradewinds Dec 2014 #396
The truly intelligent would know when to use the first person plural. rug Dec 2014 #397
But does he discriminate based on someone being a religious believer? Or a supporter of religion? cbayer Dec 2014 #109
In Groups that are not safe havens, chronic disruption occurs. rug Dec 2014 #37
So when is the last time that has happened? Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #42
The one to whom it last happened is currently vacationing on his transparency page. rug Dec 2014 #44
Last block was in 2013 Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #54
There's ten days left. rug Dec 2014 #59
And there are some people only a hide or two from a vacation. Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #63
Oh there's a big difference between your weaselly worded alerts and what he does day in and day out. rug Dec 2014 #81
I've alerted on only 1 of your hides. Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #84
And how many of your alerts have failed? rug Dec 2014 #86
You're right, rug, you have 4 hides not because of what you have done Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #88
So, do you have the data on how many failed alerts were sent? rug Dec 2014 #91
On you? None. I'm 1 for 1 with you. Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #98
Anectdotally, I've received jury results on eleven failed alerts to every hide. rug Dec 2014 #106
Yeah I got several alerts I was alerted on throughout this years as well. hrmjustin Dec 2014 #114
Wait, the election's not over yet. rug Dec 2014 #117
Are you to be the arbiter of who is/is not a "chronic disruptor"? tradewinds Dec 2014 #264
That is the hosts job. hrmjustin Dec 2014 #266
Yes. rug Dec 2014 #276
So are you going to tut-tut Justin for sending up the bat signal Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #163
I'm not aware of that having happened, but interfaith is an open group. cbayer Dec 2014 #168
So, basically, it's OK when your friends do it. Got it. Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #169
I will absolutely scoff at that. cbayer Dec 2014 #171
Can you explain what you mean here? hrmjustin Dec 2014 #170
Cbayer said it was crappy because she thought atheists were rallying the troops. Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #175
Oh ok. hrmjustin Dec 2014 #176
I bet they need klieg lights for that. rug Dec 2014 #215
Like you didn't know. AtheistCrusader Dec 2014 #239
Your opinion is noted. hrmjustin Dec 2014 #241
"As a host your comment is under review. i will let you know." AtheistCrusader Dec 2014 #242
That is not an attack. hrmjustin Dec 2014 #243
At the very least, it's a threat. AtheistCrusader Dec 2014 #245
Oh please! a threat? stop being dramatic. hrmjustin Dec 2014 #247
Yes, because your use of host powers is eminently predictable. AtheistCrusader Dec 2014 #249
Your opinion is noted. i disagree. hrmjustin Dec 2014 #251
It's cool. AtheistCrusader Dec 2014 #253
I will. hrmjustin Dec 2014 #254
I said no such thing. Are you ever going to stop distorting what I say? cbayer Dec 2014 #180
Well, I got a hypocrisy point, but not for what you think. Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #182
I would love for things to be less partisan, but they are partisan and I am definitely cbayer Dec 2014 #183
I don't know. Honestly. I don't know what changes it. Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #206
So are you saying I deserve the treatment I receive here from some people? cbayer Dec 2014 #301
You asked what I could do. Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #306
So now you're telling someone else I'm an ass? rug Dec 2014 #307
I said I was an ass, too! Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #308
You didn't answer my question, but I didn't really expect you to. cbayer Dec 2014 #310
"Go sit in judgement of someone else." Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #311
"What would you have me do?" - well that is an interesting question. Warren Stupidity Dec 2014 #280
Well i don't make that decision but yes I think we need agreement on both sides to change the hrmjustin Dec 2014 #20
I don't. Because that will never happen. Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #26
I am not going to start a revolt if my side loses. hrmjustin Dec 2014 #27
I didn't think you would, my man. Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #28
Lol i guess an elf and a dwarf can get along. hrmjustin Dec 2014 #31
"none of the above" is not changing the rules. Warren Stupidity Dec 2014 #17
Vote in the poll Renew Deal Dec 2014 #21
I did. hrmjustin Dec 2014 #22
When you get a chance, would you please answer my question above. cbayer Dec 2014 #30
Sorry. Which one? Renew Deal Dec 2014 #40
My question above about how you feel about dealing with blocking members cbayer Dec 2014 #48
Hmmm. okasha Dec 2014 #205
Just seeking feedback at this point. Renew Deal Dec 2014 #403
No. DU consensus means no strong objection. rug Dec 2014 #36
So where is it indicated that we need that definition of consensus to make a change? Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #43
That is the definition of consensus. What you're now saying is change without consensus. rug Dec 2014 #46
That alone says legions about what this is all about. cbayer Dec 2014 #49
Where in the rules does it say we need consensus to change hosting? Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #56
You think we can come to general agreement? What do you imagine that agreement to be? cbayer Dec 2014 #61
Where in the rules does it say it's done by polls? rug Dec 2014 #62
Then that is a MIRT definition. Not how the word is actually defined. Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #66
Oh no, the foot-stomping tantrum was just days ago. rug Dec 2014 #82
There was no tantrum that I saw. Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #85
Of course you didn't. It's what you consider discussion. rug Dec 2014 #87
Oh come on. Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #90
He didn't, now did he? He doesn't disrupt. Especially out of manufactured pique. rug Dec 2014 #93
Do you approve of pinto's lock of that thread? Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #103
No. rug Dec 2014 #111
you can't even bring yourself to answer a simple question unambiguously. Warren Stupidity Dec 2014 #142
Ambiguity is the stuff of life, Warren. rug Dec 2014 #151
Why should a host be able to overextend their powers? Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #157
carefully avoiding an explicit personal attack is important at this point. Warren Stupidity Dec 2014 #143
Ah, is that why you modified your alleged ignore list? rug Dec 2014 #152
I'd like to ask that I not be used any further, specifically, in this manner. Please stop. pinto Dec 2014 #227
Couple things. Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #235
Do tell, monger. What is telling about it? rug Dec 2014 #286
I'm sorry. I was talking to pinto there. Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #289
I'm sorry. I thought you were talking to pinto about me there. rug Dec 2014 #293
No more admonishments of people interrupting, then. Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #295
There won't be any admonitions if there's no more trash talking of other DU members. rug Dec 2014 #299
What does your support of his action-- Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #302
Ah, you just can't help making personal attacks. rug Dec 2014 #303
Yes there was a tantrum. one of our members decided he needed to do three threads over the issue. hrmjustin Dec 2014 #92
Really? I think that pretty much defines a tantrum. cbayer Dec 2014 #94
I cleared out my ignore list for the fun. hrmjustin Dec 2014 #97
I have a thing about abuse of authority. Warren Stupidity Dec 2014 #141
Yesterday i got truly upset for the first time here ever. i needed to take a break. hrmjustin Dec 2014 #145
The rules have a thing about abuse. rug Dec 2014 #153
Rules can't actually "have a thing" but please elaborate. Warren Stupidity Dec 2014 #192
They can and they do. rug Dec 2014 #200
This is the bottom line. This poll is nothing more than advice. cbayer Dec 2014 #68
Yes I expect a meltdown by a few but i think most will move on. hrmjustin Dec 2014 #70
I'm really tired already of you calling my plan a farce. Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #72
Aww…. is it ok if I tell you all the things I am really tired of? cbayer Dec 2014 #77
I don't believe this is a compromise either. hrmjustin Dec 2014 #80
2.5 hosts is the true compromise! Rainforestgoddess Dec 2014 #373
Love it. We currently have 4, so we could keep RD and cut the other three into halfs and cbayer Dec 2014 #374
Glad I'm not a host! Rainforestgoddess Dec 2014 #375
I'm glad neither of us are. I personally like being in one piece. cbayer Dec 2014 #376
If you're happy you're not a host Heddi Dec 2014 #394
Didn't see your post before posting #205. okasha Dec 2014 #210
Yes. i think to change the rules we shoukd have consensus. hrmjustin Dec 2014 #50
Define "consensus" tradewinds Dec 2014 #269
Very simple! In this room consensus is both the majority of believers and non-believers agreeing on hrmjustin Dec 2014 #270
No, that is just majority rule. tradewinds Dec 2014 #275
The fact is the hosts have the final say what really happens here. hrmjustin Dec 2014 #278
So, consensus is out of the question, then? tradewinds Dec 2014 #281
Hosting is not all that hard. hrmjustin Dec 2014 #283
"its a democracy but the hosts have the final say"????? tradewinds Dec 2014 #285
This is how the site is set up. hrmjustin Dec 2014 #290
Not a democracy. tradewinds Dec 2014 #291
Well it is in some respects but not in others. hrmjustin Dec 2014 #292
So, then it is not. tradewinds Dec 2014 #294
Well in this instance i think the hosts will go with a majority vote. hrmjustin Dec 2014 #296
Magic 8 ball says: No. tradewinds Dec 2014 #297
Why? hrmjustin Dec 2014 #298
So complain to Skinner. okasha Dec 2014 #328
This site never has been and has never intended to be a democracy. cbayer Dec 2014 #305
Only some "word salad " posts here. tradewinds Dec 2014 #314
Uh, oh. Did you not know it is an open board and anyone can respond to anything? cbayer Dec 2014 #315
Sure. Respond away. tradewinds Dec 2014 #317
Cbayer is one of our best posters in this room. hrmjustin Dec 2014 #318
This is not Mark Charles, by the way. Even Mark Charles does it better. cbayer Dec 2014 #320
Agreed that he is not Mark. hrmjustin Dec 2014 #321
No, it isn't. okasha Dec 2014 #335
Idiolect - I like that! cbayer Dec 2014 #337
That would be your opinion. tradewinds Dec 2014 #322
And you based this on being here for a few days and at one of this rooms low moments? hrmjustin Dec 2014 #323
This is not the only rodeo. tradewinds Dec 2014 #325
Is that an insult at me? hrmjustin Dec 2014 #326
Of course not. Why on earth would you think that? tradewinds Dec 2014 #330
Well in general I think people in this room have a wealth of experience in real life. hrmjustin Dec 2014 #332
In general? tradewinds Dec 2014 #334
You haven't been here long enough to know that. hrmjustin Dec 2014 #339
Like I said, this is not the only rodeo. tradewinds Dec 2014 #342
You picked the most contentious room to post in. hrmjustin Dec 2014 #343
Discussions involving fantasy often are. tradewinds Dec 2014 #344
Lol well we disagree on religion. hrmjustin Dec 2014 #345

I don't think this one is. rug Dec 2014 #95
ok - what was dishonest about my response? Warren Stupidity Dec 2014 #144
I must check a calendar. Lent seemed unusually long this time. rug Dec 2014 #150

Should current hosts be voting in this poll? trotsky Dec 2014 #83
They hsve the right. They participate here. hrmjustin Dec 2014 #89
This should be called the free floating hostility thread in honor of George Carlin. hrmjustin Dec 2014 #107

Well, Pinto, and I forget who he replaced Lordquinton Dec 2014 #129

They are never going to trash this group. Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #214
Well, you have a point there, re GD. longship Dec 2014 #216
I have no problem peacefully discussing this LostOne4Ever Dec 2014 #228

Both of those groups have significant differences from Religion though LostOne4Ever Dec 2014 #231
I'll go with the bunnies. okasha Dec 2014 #348
Thank you for your input. longship Dec 2014 #230

Would it be possible... NeoGreen Dec 2014 #240
I would also like to see an option for 3 hosts. cbayer Dec 2014 #246
How is 'let juries handle it' partisan? AtheistCrusader Dec 2014 #252
Do you have an indication that those voting for just RD Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #257
Heavens no. You think that coalition is going to break ranks in order to reach a compromise. cbayer Dec 2014 #259
The option I really want isn't even up there, either. Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #260
So, it the poll is changed to show "no hosts" as an option, are you going to change your vote? cbayer Dec 2014 #265
Wait a minute. I thought I was TPTB. Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #272
Oh, no, you are clearly not TPTB. cbayer Dec 2014 #284
Oooh, 3+RD instead of 4+RD, what a fucking compromise. AtheistCrusader Dec 2014 #262
2+RD=3. okasha Dec 2014 #357
Still not half of the former 5. (Counting RD) AtheistCrusader Dec 2014 #358
Whom do you propose to split down the middle, Solly? okasha Dec 2014 #364
The hosts aren't necessary. AtheistCrusader Dec 2014 #367
Same reason SCOTUS has 9. okasha Dec 2014 #369
Try looking up the history of the court. AtheistCrusader Dec 2014 #370
And an odd number was eventually settled on. okasha Dec 2014 #371
settles on FOR NOW. AtheistCrusader Dec 2014 #372
"I don't condemn" - well sure you did and do. Warren Stupidity Dec 2014 #263
And of those voting for Texas Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #267
I want you to consider something here. cbayer Dec 2014 #273
What a crock of shit. AtheistCrusader Dec 2014 #279
What exactly are they being protected from? Warren Stupidity Dec 2014 #287
There have been a couple LostOne4Ever Dec 2014 #300
Ok I take it back, every now and then an actual off topic post goes up. Warren Stupidity Dec 2014 #329
I think they *want* hosts to wield the banhammer. AtheistCrusader Dec 2014 #309
To ban those who follow the SoP? LostOne4Ever Dec 2014 #312
Not me. This is not a safe-haven and at this point I expect what I see in this room. hrmjustin Dec 2014 #313
So what do you think you need a committee of hosts for? Warren Stupidity Dec 2014 #331
With more hosts you get different perspectives. hrmjustin Dec 2014 #333
"Different" AtheistCrusader Dec 2014 #360
Yes. hrmjustin Dec 2014 #363
Because I'm a Thor geek, I get to post this Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #316

I approve of both the Thor image and the Loki response Rainforestgoddess Dec 2014 #381
Im happy to be of of service! LostOne4Ever Dec 2014 #393
Too pretty, that one Rainforestgoddess Dec 2014 #409
To some extent, yes, there is a split. Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #288
To some extent there is a split? Some extent? cbayer Dec 2014 #304
But, you can't prove the atheist orginization doesn't exist! Lordquinton Dec 2014 #338
I'd like to see the 3-host option, too. okasha Dec 2014 #349
It is the compromise position, despite other things being cbayer Dec 2014 #350
Option four has that effect. AtheistCrusader Dec 2014 #248
I read it as retaining RD... NeoGreen Dec 2014 #258
I could be wrong, but I think someone has to 'own' the group. AtheistCrusader Dec 2014 #261
See Skinners reply from last time. No hosts is fine. Warren Stupidity Dec 2014 #271
That's a good point Renew Deal Dec 2014 #407
Yes, I read options #3 and #4 as the same... NeoGreen Dec 2014 #410
Ok, I stand corrected... NeoGreen Dec 2014 #413
I'm glad to have you hosting and I support Texas Towlie as a great new nonpartisan host. NYC_SKP Dec 2014 #324
Solid. I was a mod. Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #327
I was a mod but I wouldn't recommend myself to host this particular group. NYC_SKP Dec 2014 #336
While it is true that what is popular is not always wise LostOne4Ever Dec 2014 #341
I'd like to kick this thread for more votes with this humorous little Tosh.0 clip. NYC_SKP Dec 2014 #346
I'd like to call the question, so to speak. Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #347
It's not an up and down vote, but I second a call to close the debate. cbayer Dec 2014 #353
So when those of us that wanted no hosts last time were in the minority Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #354
Do you ever stop? cbayer Dec 2014 #356
He can't. okasha Dec 2014 #361
He is indeed an aristocrat of the soul. cbayer Dec 2014 #365
Nope. I'm like the damn energizer bunny. Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #398

I hope not. I'm on a desk 'pute now, okasha Dec 2014 #366
I hope they decide tonight. hrmjustin Dec 2014 #368
Well LostOne4Ever Dec 2014 #378
lol I love it. hrmjustin Dec 2014 #379
We would probably be the first people blocked here since the jury change though LostOne4Ever Dec 2014 #380
I think people would find the humor in it. lol. hrmjustin Dec 2014 #382
I'd think that through, again. tradewinds Dec 2014 #383
All the more reason to do it. You want in? LostOne4Ever Dec 2014 #385

I just wanted post 400 Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #400
I got to 50,000 today. hrmjustin Dec 2014 #401
You realize that is almost 50 per day for every day you have been a member? A HERETIC I AM Dec 2014 #429
A lot of it was my NY room posts. I posted a lot of updates in there. hrmjustin Dec 2014 #430
I don't know what "NUY" is, but neither here nor there. A HERETIC I AM Dec 2014 #431
Typo sorry. NY room posts. hrmjustin Dec 2014 #432
I give up what is a "NY room post"? Warren Stupidity Dec 2014 #440
You forgot the s. hrmjustin Dec 2014 #441
Oh, by "room" you mean "group" or "forum". Warren Stupidity Dec 2014 #442
I have escaped from time to time. hrmjustin Dec 2014 #443
Seems like people have had enough of this. Renew Deal Dec 2014 #402
.?. haikugal Dec 2014 #411
it is the Only renew deal option (56%) vrs everything else put together (44%) (nt) LostOne4Ever Dec 2014 #412
That is an odd characterization of the results. Warren Stupidity Dec 2014 #415
Yeah, a vote for me should be in no way translated as opposite the 'no hosts' option. AtheistCrusader Dec 2014 #424
RD, I object to the way you have stated the results of this poll. trotsky Dec 2014 #414
Goood point Renew Deal Dec 2014 #422
Maybe you should ask him to resign. rug Dec 2014 #426
If you are confused by the results you could hold a run-off between the top two. Warren Stupidity Dec 2014 #416
And a run-off is generally only used when no option got a majority vote. trotsky Dec 2014 #417
To interpret this as anything other than a clear indication of just you as host Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #420
I understand why you think that Dorian Gray Dec 2014 #433
I believe he said up above he would. Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #435
But it's totally a thankless job Dorian Gray Dec 2014 #436
In which case, we can just do as Skinner himself suggested, and have no hosts. trotsky Dec 2014 #437
Absolutely Goblinmonger Dec 2014 #438
Good luck with the decision. n/t. hrmjustin Dec 2014 #421
You seriously have to "figure out what that means"? Curmudgeoness Dec 2014 #423
Good luck Dorian Gray Dec 2014 #434
Why have a poll and then ignore the resuts of that poll and try to fnd ways mr blur Dec 2014 #418
No one has done anything like that. Renew Deal Dec 2014 #444
I vote for no hosts at all. Metatron Dec 2014 #425
Whatever you do, and the rules are clear it is entirely the hosts' decision,- rug Dec 2014 #427
