    She hasn't gone.
    Pretty sure people can pop back whenever they like.

    It's a bit weird how you react to such a thing.

    What do the other fingers feel if only thumbs count?

    That too, well said.

    A 6 to 4 win should only be 2 points if you went with that system. In my opinion.
    The number of extra wins being the points won.

    That way...if you have a guy resigning or "losing" because he sees the match has been won would actually be taking points away from his own team.

    Edit...That system with a seperate clan rating is much better than the system used now.
    In 2016, several people proposed more or less the same modification to the clan system, and were shouted down.

    "Probable"? So you also think it's probably 18 different people?
    Yes I do. And I can't be sure, so "probably".

    Plus I can't understand why the concept of using probable when one can't be really sure seems to be so difficult to understand.

    Doing a Metal Brain, asking "can you proove it" in any situation when it is evident that the fact is beyond reasonable doubt, but not beyond unreasonable doubt.

    I don't think it is weird. But I do find it a bit odd how you are so defensive on her behalf even in a trifling, jocular matter like this.
    There is nothing trifling or jocular about your toxicity.

    It pleases me not to.

    Why does that bother you?
    The pertinent question is, why does that please you?

    "a trifling, jocular matter"

    It's a bit odd how you and divegeester indulge yourselves in trifling, jocular matters such as this.

    Doing a FMF: creating as many stupid threads as possible.
    In fact I now added my thumb. Just for the LULZ.

    Unlike thumbs, the fingers are not opposable so they are inferior digits.
    My thumbs are not opposed to fingers at all, they are very tolerant.

    Nor is it "rocket science" to realize that there are posters here who have multiple accounts for thumbing purposes like Executioner Brand and that Stella who was using upwards of 6 accounts to cause a storm of thumbs at the time Duchess64 self-destructed.
    That’s not a problem with the thumbs feature, that’s simply a violation of TOS.

    Removing the thumbs feature just because one or two posters abuse it is silly and unfairly penalizes the rest of the posters here who don’t abuse it. That’s like cities which remove park benches to keep bums from sleeping on them, thereby depriving the rest of the population of a place to sit. Pfui !

    I started a club for people who want to argue about any topic without fear of moderation.

    This would also free up the debates forum from the plethora of American/Trump/Biden/Socialist vs Capitalism/Racial threads.

    I'm not recommending anyone leave the debates forum but if you want a place to battle it out with a rival, then by all means join the Booger Club.

    Actually not a bad idea I’m sick of using emojis and misspelled swear words to explain to Joe how irrevocably stupid he is.
    But I fear that I’d bet be the only libtard in the club

    Ukraine was Russia's territory. It was part of the USSR. They are just trying to get back what they lost to a coup. Is that so bad (Bay of Pigs invasion) to try to get a colony back after losing it to a coup?

    Why did your Margaret Thatcher invade the Falkland Islands? Be honest.
    Russia is not the ussr though is it unless your admitting that the Soviet Union was really a Russian empire carved out in the aftermath of WWII in which case every ex vassal state from Germany to Ukraine has every right to not only join nato but take every opportunity to thwart Putin’s attempts to recreate that empire in any way shape or form.
    Russia is the self sworn enemy of nato and the west, thus nato and the west have an obvious duty to defend their citizens from Russian aggression by any means necessary from supporting Ukraine to direct confrontation with Putin’s conventional and nuclear forces. You imperialistic Russians need to wake up and smell the coffee, the world has moved on from czars and commissars and whole continents being carved up by imperial powers.
    You’re all over the place on this one, Ukraine is a sovereign state just like Russia and the US.

    You don't want to acknowledge the difference between "when" and "after". You are out of your mind if you think "when" means "after".

    This is a conspiracy of silence. News outlets want to see the evidence.
    Well, you've seen the evidence now. DePape has his hands on Pelosi and the hammer as soon as the door opens and Pelosi doesn't "step back" until DePape wrestles the hammer free.

    How's that crow taste?
