        Thanks politburo for turning my account back
        on! - motd boob guy
        \_ Maybe you'd like this site?
           \_ So what _is_ the rule on flickr?  No complete nipples?
              \_ Well, the "community guidelines" say:
                DON'T Upload photos that include frontal nudity,
                genitalia and/or "intimate moments" between consenting
                partners in public areas of Flickr. If you do we'll make
                your photostream private and remind you of this
                Guideline. If you don't heed our warning and continue to
                make similar content public, we'll terminate your account
                without warning. This applies to your Buddy Icon as well.
                 I haven't looked at the page, but it's possible that:
                 Flickr hasn't noticed, this area is private(?), or it's
                 not "frontal nudity."

12/19   Firefox and are out.  I thought there wouldn't be any
        more 1.5.x versions.
        \_ Have you looked at the changes file? -dans

12/20   Georgia kid gets 10 years for getting a bj from a 15 yo when he was 17.
        No parole plus sexual offender registration.
        \_ IMHO 10 years is too much, given that the age of consent in Georgia
           is 16.  I wonder if that's even longer than some adult rape
           sentensings there.
           \_ The point is, why is it even a crime?
        \_ Who pressed charges? The girl's parents? If so, they are
           \_ The people who made the law are despicable.
              \_ What's the problem with the law? It protects minors from
                 abuse. What I want to know is how he got convicted.
        \_ Way to ruin a life morons.
        \_ I bet the girl was white.  Our lily white daughter befouled by this
           colored boy!?  Guilty!
           \- if BILLARY wins, he may get a presidntial pardon!
              are any of the sex fiend teachers having relations with
              students cases in GA?

12/20   More attempts to track down the elusive "Capt. Hussein"
        \_ she's pretty hot, I'll convert to a Republican to screw her.
        \_ I haven't read the above url, but I've read a lot of MM urls,
           and she is a troll of the highest order.  Doesn't contribute
           anything, is thin skinned, isn't particularly witty, I'm
           just not gonna do it anymore.  Even Andrew Sullivan
           and Pat Buchanan make points that I can agree with
           now and then.  MM should be ejected into the sun.
           \_ "Written by fools to be read by imbeciles."
           \_ Wow, I'm glad you're so damn open-minded.  The post is about
              trying to track down the fake Cap. Hussein.  It's not nearly as
              much opinion as simple investigation.
              \_ It doesn't even matter.  CNN/AP/Reuters/NBC/etc have been
                 busted making up stories or twisting the truth so many times
                 it isn't possible to read their stories as anything more
                 than that anymore: stories.  This Captain Hussein thing is
                 just one more in a long long long list of lies.
                 \_ Do the voices tell you to do things? -dans
        \_ I'm trying to figure out the desired end result here.  So you
           and MM are saying that someone is deliberately exaggerating
           the number of violent incidents around Baghdad?  Is that it?
           I happen to think that it's all underreported.  I think there
           are tons of violent incidents in Baghdad and the surrounding
           areas that are a result of sectarian civil whatever the hell
           you want to call it violence, and a lot of horrible things
           happen but it's not reported, since reporters cannot safely
           travel anywhere in Iraq.  It all sucks.  MM sucks.
           \_ The desired end result is that the media report the truth, not
              report what they think or want the truth to be even if they
              sometimes guess right. No one is denying there are deaths,
              death squads, violence, etc.
              \_ This Hussein thing must be under my radar.  I scan
                 paper copies of the Chronicle, NY Times, and WSJ nearly
                 every day and I've never heard of it.
                 \_ Exactly.  Look at your news sources.
                    \_ All right smart guy, I try to stay informed.  I read.
                       I read the above 3 papers.  I watch Fox to get a good
                       chuckle now and then.  WHAT SHOULD I BE READING?
                       Your fucking retarded MM blog?  Or maybe Little
                       Green Footballs?  The WSJ, if you ignore the editorial
                       page, is one of the finest news sources around.
                       \_ It isn't "my fucking retarded MM blog".  Anyway, I
                          don't think it matters what _you_ read.  Your mind
                          is set.  Read whatever reinforces whatever you
                          already want to believe and be happy.
                       \_ I actually don't know why anyone would object to that
                          list. Though the Chron is one of the most biased rags
                          I've ever seen.  -op
                       \_ Actually, it doesn't even really qualify as a blog
                          since she doesn't allow any reader comments. More
                          of a self-published amateur diary.
                          \_ She used to... but then people started posting
                             naked penii redirects all over her pages.  She should
                             have hired a right wing CAPTCHA dude.
                             naked penii redirects all over her pages. She
                             should have hired a right wing CAPTCHA dude.
                             \_ The plural of Penis is not Penii.
           \_ The stories citing this mythical Capt Hussein are invariably the
              most extreme examples.  The story about people throwing kerosene
              on worshippers leaving a mosque and lighting them on fire as
              Iraqi police were watching for instance. -op
              \_ You are right, MM is so fair and balanced and unbiased,
                 I am glad you showed me the light. I can now stop wasting
                 my time reading the WSJ, NYT, The Economist, The Week and
                 all that other MSM trash and just get all my information
                 about the outside world from the brilliant and beautiful
                 \_ I haven't been saying anything about your reading choices.
                    But you're not responding to the points about Hussein. -op
                    \_ Points were made about Hussein in this thread?  I don't
                       see any. -dans
