  1. Have all admins abandoned Toytown?

      If you don't like mansplaining, would you be amenable to correctile dysfunction?
  2. Only in America

    Well, corporate welfare is alive and well in the US.    
  3. Only in America

      One of the founders of SVB was a Lehman Bros.  CFO who bailed out of Lehman right before it fell apart. SVB lobbied the Trump administration to roll back Dodd-Frank, a law that would have caught this unforced error before it caused problems. Furthermore, the tech companies who banked there were well aware of the deposit limits, e.g., Roku at $490 million or so, but it might not have mattered anyway. The tech sector and its cross-eyed cousin venture capital have got to stop thinking that the free market should be untouched by regulation when they're doing well, but they should be the beneficiaries of corporate welfare when they fail
  4. I didn't know Katheliz well. She DMed me out of the blue in October 2020 to talk a bit about anti-Islamic hate on TT and the US elections. She was a terrific wit on the board, and she raised good people. My deepest sympathy for the family. 
  5. The War in Ukraine

      Yep.     Sure.
  6.   That and/or you can ask for the correspondence between her and the previous landlord. 
  7. The War in Ukraine

      Well, it's also against TOS to post the content of a PM, but there are no more moderators, so, yeah.
  8. The War in Ukraine

      Wait. There was a post?
  9. The War in Ukraine

      No one has ever told Jeba to stop posting. However, I do not have to tolerate in silence his tolerance of an attempt at the genocide of Ukrainians, which is, after all, on the same conceptual level as the Holocaust.
  10. The War in Ukraine

      No. I have no problem telling you in public that I think your ideas are morally bereft, indicating a bankruptcy of the soul that makes me feel sorry for your children. Furthermore, my vocabulary is better and I never use that many exclamation points or all caps.   Are you surprised that more than one person takes umbrage at your selfishness? 
  11. The War in Ukraine

    Abusive husband says, "You made me hit you!" That's to emphasize how stupid Putin's statement that "they [Ukraine] started the war. And we used the force in order to stop it.”   What a load of total bullshit.    
  12. Verdi demanding 15% wage hike

      Bear with him. English is not his first language and to assume he has mastered all aspects of the language would be a mistake.
  13. Verdi demanding 15% wage hike

    Yes, it would be bad if skilled workers could decide where they wanted to live and for whom they wanted to work based on pay and benefits. Horrible concept.    
  14. The War in Ukraine

    More critique of the Kremlinologist Krone-Schmalz from the director of the Institute for East European History and Regional Studies at the Eberhard Karls University in Tübingen, who was cited by Constanze Stelzenmueller of the Brookings Institute today.
