    He's spending all of the money out of his PayPal on speakers. File your claim as soon as you get the package. There are no jaces, this guy is scamming Paypal.

    Quote from Ximbad
    People aren't starving to death because there isn't enough food to feed the homeless. The real problems are drugs (you forget to eat, lol) and paranoia (you won't accept help out of fear). Giving people junk food doen't solve any real problem. When there are people who are willing to accept handouts who stave to death because the food bank is empty your argument will be valid. But the food banks are well stocked with safe, healthy food.


    *ahem*

    Would you care to cite your sources? I think you just made that up to support your thin argument.


    I find it quite hard to believe that, without donations, the state can fund and stock food banks sufficiently enough to feed every homeless person willing to accept handouts.

    I made a statement: "Junk food is demonstrably superior to no food." That's not up for debate and requires no sources. A person dies without food.

    The burden of proof here, would be firmly on those denying good intention donations. Prove that you can feed people without the donations, then we'll stop trying to help people.

    While homelessness is a tragedy, there aren't that many homeless people. In June 46,000 people were living in municipal shelters in New York.link Wholesale a meal can cost less than a quarter. link

    The ban is only on donations to government run facilities. The New York food bank is still taking donations. The second link has information if you're planning on making a charitable donation.
    Quote from bocephus
    Its just another example of the government over stepping their bounds and getting involved into something they have no business butting into. With actions like this, soon it will be illegal to have a non-state funded caring/food center.
    The government is running the government-run homeless shelters? What isn't over the line if think like that?

  • posted a message on How to End the CI War in Four Easy Steps
    Quote from resonance
    I feel this needs to be tossed out there as an astute observer and hear me out before considering any of the OP. This entire Community Issues war, yes, this ENTIRE recent Gutter debacle is Azrael's fault. All the advice he's ever given you guys has only complicated your job.

    1) Azrael somehow convinced staff to negotiate with the Gutterites the first time it was seemingly arbitrarily closed. One of the primary criticisms of staff now is that staff was negotiating with the Gutter with bad faith. Wouldn't it have been easier to just close the Gutter the first time and be done with it?
    2) Azrael may have inadvertently caused the "leak". Azrael and the Gutter pushed for greater lower staff participation in site policy making. You've shared and gathered input regarding the Curse transaction with lower staff. Look where it got you.
    3) Azrael is the source of significant Community Issues drama and staff turnover. Azrael made the highly controversial "The Gloves Are Off" thread. He called for Rianalnn, despite Rianalnn being largely innocent, to step down and he got it. Now he's calling for staff members to step down again? At one time, the Gutter loved {MikeyG}. They loved Rianalnn. They loved Galspanic. It's all flavor of the month with users.

    Now Azrael is claiming there is this massive "CI War" and that it can only be resolved with an esoteric ritual of negotiation, compromise, and staff resignations. Think before you act and think carefully. I feel the greatest issue with staff has always been its inability to think critically. Rather than dismiss bad arguments, it often validates them merely on basis of popularity amongst users.
    I think it is fair to point out that you have no idea what you are talking about.

    Anyone that took this guy seriously can go ahead and stop doing that.

    Whay I don't get is why your splashing for such mediocre cards. Trestle troll and golgliari charm? Isepera's skywatch? You'd be better off just playing mediocre cards in your colors. You don't have nearly the fixing required to throw a random blue cards in.

    Was I the only person who correctly named Tom as scum?


    I was going to rob him and I was hoping I could deflect the roleblock by not mentioning I thought he was scum. I was killing mander there regardless and tom would be an easy lynch the next day when I claimed. I was so sure the G_D was scum that I didn't really come up with a contingency plan.

    It's -2.

    -2: When you cast your next instant or sorcery spell this turn, copy that spell. You may choose new targets for the copy.

    It only,works for one turn.

    Sell it. Getting rid of your collection that you don't even have the time to use is way better than going into debt.

    If you think you're wasting money rebuying stuff you sold that went up in price, wait until you see what a little bit of debt adds up to.

    I'm kinda confused as to how Manders being hammered by G_D would give us a 2-for-1 as well, unless I missed a bread crumb or something...
    Manders claimed that if she was killed, whoever voted her last would also die.

    It doesn't make sense for someone to go through that much trouble to try and rip you off. Why woulf they get real ice age cards and reseal them? Your box is real.

    If you read the Forum Rules, you'll see that 1 and 2 word posts are not allowed. And no, the point of the Clans' Forum is not to give people a place to spam. It's meant for friends to gather and talk in a more relaxed way. But it's still a place where actual conversations should take place.


    Why do you say you can't trust the Mods and Admins. Have people been lying to you? I, for one, have never lied here and I like to believe that other mods have the same moral grounds...
