2/25    Since people seem to like posting sfgate URLs, maybe someone-who-
        knows-someone can tell them the wisdom of pre-generating articles
        from templates, instead of using CGI to regenerate something that
        doesnt change for days
        \_ I charge $250/hour.
        \_ you missed the concept.

2/25    Vote to legalize gay marriage among trolls!  Same-sex troll unions
        have been discriminated against for too long.  Just because we're
        ugly and have warts and eat people and are of the same sex doesn't
        mean you can beat on us anymore!        -The gay trolls

2/25    The gay marriage thread has become really really tiresome.  Can't
        you trolls find anything else more interesting to flame about?  We
        need some fresh blood.  All you trollers are getting old and very
        unimaginative. -- disgruntled troller

2/25    What do you people do with old MSDOS games or Win 3.1 games?
        Donate?  Throw away?  Or are there some avid gamers who still
        play those games?
        \_ MSDOS games? Some of the best games I've ever played were MSDOS.
           And, hey -- they run great under DOSEMU, so I don't even have to
           reboot to play them. I really don't think you have to be all that
           avid a gamer to still play old games -- as a lot of them have much
           more creativity and fun gameplay than today's crop of deathmatch
           games, which gets old fast. Win3.1 games? There were Win3.1 games
           that people actually bought and played? -- ajani

2/25    For those of you who were wondering why bother legalizing gay marriage
        and claimed the benfits were minor: read the following url.
        \_  Let's just get to the point:  if two guys are girls what to
        \_  Let's just get to the point:  if two guys or girls want to
            hook up and engage it dick-sucking, asshole-fucking, carpet-
            munching, finger-fucking, or whatever else it is that same-
            sex couples do, that nobody else's business.  Or maybe they
            want to be married in a non-sexual union.  whatever. The government
            has no right to legislate on who gets to marry who...that
            constitution.  And regardless of what the law says, it's
            is in direct violation of the first amendment of the U.S.
            \_ true. Marriage has no business being in U.S. law at all.
            yourselves...your insularity is a sickness in itself.
            And regardless of what the law says, it's
            nobody else's business anyhow save for the two people
            in the relationship.  Case closed.  I can't believe people
            are arguing homosexuality as a disease.  Just look at
            some of you. Your insularity is a sickness in itself.
               - rational straight guy

               - damned straight guy

            yourselves...your insularity is a sickness in itself.
            \_*stupid comment nuked again*  my, you are stubborn!
            \_ Your sickness is a sickness
        \_ It is more proof the benefits are minor. Do we really want to
           ship in MORE gays to the gay capitol of the world?
        (Yah it
        is sappy, sorry about that.)  Also those of you who think gays and
        lesbians should have the right to marry please print out
        /csua/tmp/petition.pdf, fill it out and mail it in.  Signatures are
        needed.  Every damn one counts.  And to the idiot who keeps
        deleting anything in to motd related to this topic, grow up you little

         [a little rougher formatting, but nicer to cut-n-paste]
        \_ Anyone who uses Adair Lara's column for anything other than TP should
           have his head checked (or already did at the door).
           \_ I know.  That is why I apolgized for the sappy content -aspo
        \_ gays and lesbians should not be allowed to get married, they
           should go to mental hospital or be shot. They are like a a
           disease or virus. Naturally they will all perish because
           there will be no offsprings. What's the point of getting married?
           \_ because they want to pretend their sickness is "normal"
              \_ Even better, they want to force you to recognize with no
                 scientific or medical basis that they are "born that way" and
                 that it's okay.
                 \_ even if there really is a "gay gene", doesn't mean
                    it should be accepted as "okay". After all, there are
                    allegedly cancer genes, too.
                    \_ so cancerous people can't marry these days? -aspo
                       \_ "marriage" is fundamentally "A union between a man
                           and a woman". If you want "communal living partner
                           benefits", then lobby for them. Dont try to
                           corrupt marriage.
                           \_ Wow.  You can really thump that Bible.  Have you
                              considered following in the footsteps of Billy
                       \_ Now aren't we the clever one.
                        \_ I wasn't the person who brought up cancer, but we
                           have strict laws against discriminating against
                           people becuase they have cancer.  -aspo
                              \_ I like how when I reply intelligently to this
                                 someone feels the need to delete it. -aspo
                           \_ JOB discrimination, HOUSING discrimination.
                              But I guess that's not enough for you, let's
                              legislate EVERYTHING, and make sure that
                              trillions of dollars  are spent to ensure that
                              people with monobrows are not unfairly
                              seated during rock concerts!
                           \_ necrophiles are people too!  Discrimination is
                    \_ Hey, lay off.  -The gay gene
                       GAY! GAY! GAY IS THE STANDARD! Alternative lifestyle.
                        \_ no s&m is
           \_ The same should be done for trolls like yourselves.  You
              obviously won't produce any offsprings either, but, in your
              case, it's because you're completely without social grace.  The
              worst part is that, on the off chance that you DO have any
              offsprings (calling them kids would be much too kind), you'll
              likely do it with someone else completely lacking in social
              grace.  I'm sure this is just what the world needs, more
              close-minded assholes who think they've got something to prove.
              Sign your posts you trolling twink. -dans
              \_ btw, I'm one of the above group, but I'm married. Yes,
                 REAL marriage, unlike the proposed farce.
                 \_ Yes, only straight WASPy yuppie fucks like yourself
                    deserve the tax benefits of being considered legally
                    married.  I almost look forward to when you have your
                    pathetic clones, er kids so that my kids can crush them
                    using sheer willpower. -dans
              \_ Why is social grace a good, dans? -- ilyas
                 \_ Absolutely speaking, it isn't.  Someone who is always
                    deferential to others is just as bad as someone who
                    always pick fights.  Social grace is good when someone
                    possesses it in combination with the ability to decide
                    when to use it and when to ignore it. -dans
              \_ Gee , when anyone who dissents from "no on 22" is villified,
                 I'm not surprised that some poeple don't want to sign their
                 names.  -emarkp
                 \_ if you are so afraid of being called names for your
                    politics that you aren't willing to sign your name
                    you should keep quiet about them.  -aspo
                    \_ That's  right. Everyone should have to put their
                       SSN on their voting sheet. Vote for Aspo!
                        \_ I'm not saying don't hold your beliefs and vote
                           on them.  I'm just saing if you want to be a part
                           of a debate and anonymous at the same time, don't
                           expect anyone to take you for anything but a troll.
              \_ gays and lesbian marriages are like father and daughter
                 marriages, people and animal marriages, they are in one
                 word, sicko.
        \_ So you should be able to get a green card because you are roommates?
           More weak arguments like "I say marriage is a farce so you crazy
           people shouldn't try to defend it."  Weak weak weak.
        \_ Legalize trolls!  -The trolls
            \_  If we can't allow marriage between gays, how much longer until
                we ban intra-racial marriage.  Or worse, marriages between
                \_ Not to disagree with your point (I'm for gay marriage),
                  but this is fallacious reasoning -- it's called the
                  Slippery Slope fallacy.  Back to Rethoric 1A for you!

2/25    Now you idiots know why I deleted all of aspo's trollish bullshit for
        the last three days.  You had your fun for a few hours.  You spewed
        hatred at each other over a hot button topic that no one is going to
        budge from.  Now it's over.  Polito, take your troll crap elsewhere.
        You're convincing no one.  You are polarising, not bringing together.
        Abortion, the death penalty, gay marriage, immigration.  These are
        all stupid and ridiculous "debate" topics suitable only for first
        year dormies who think they can convince someone else of how right
        they are and whether or not God exists through superior logic and
        when that fails simply resort to personal abuse.  Go away.  I've
        nothing more to say but will continue to quietly delete this sort of
        spewage for so long as dormy-style idiots continue to post it.
        \_ I think the mysterious aspo rant deleter is aspo's other personality!
        \_ If you feel inclined to systematically delete posts that you
           disagree with, then we'd be more than happy to sorry your account
           for motd hozing.  It's one thing to delete things that everyone
           agrees are trolls (i.e. "Linux Rulez--RIDE BIKE" or "Man, I love
           Microsoft"), but most of the community is not of the opinion that
           Aspo's (or anyone else's posts on this subject are trolls).  If
           you don't want to read the debates they provoke, then hit the
           space bar until you're past them.  Let the rest of us (i.e. the
           larger group of people who are a) reading the thread and
           b) posting to it) decide for ourselves when the thread is tired
           and dead.  I certainly didn't ask you to sanitize the motd for my
           protection, and neither did anybody else. -dans (President Hat)
