The Racism Thread
Not really a problem, but I suppose we could discuss poster conduct here instead of dragging the other thread off-topic.

Re: newbie out of line
I wouldn't make too much of it, Faith.

Just based on the quote, I knew who you were talking about without having to click the link. He/She pulled the same stunt with me in Computer Help Please?. His/Her other post in that same thread isn't worth anything either; just another dismissal declaring it all not worth his/her effort.

Personally, I don't think coffee_addict is here to discuss much of anything. He/She just wants to grunt along with people he/she agrees with and dismiss the arguments he/she disagrees with as not worth his/her time... adding an insult or two for good measure.

I find the whole thing too sad and pitiful to be insulted or angry about any of it.

Re: newbie out of line
ABE: Couldn't find the post you were linking to, but finally did. Yes, this person definitely needs to be called out. /ABE

Sorry. Should have linked straight to the post

I think someone who is willing to come on here and slander someone needs to be called on it for the sake of the level of discourse in general, trying to keep at least a small semblance of civility.

I just don't think they are here to do anything other than waste bandwidth tossing about condescension and one-liners.

And I think that says more about them than they've said about anyone else.

There's nothing 'pithy' about babies dying in Africa.

Perhaps Moose wasn't troubled by TAD's trivialization of marc's god but by his trivialization of a continent-wide humanitarian crisis that claims hundreds of lives every year.

Re: Tilt
My life partner is a native of the war torn and starved region of Africa - born and raised. I have done more than you know in the direct aid of this terrible tragedy.

And if no one knows that?

In the anonymity of the Internet, your words rest on their own.

And thank you.

Economic Growth Thread
It's usually enough to remind someone they are off topic and then not respond to their further off-topicness.

But Tangle seems intent on pushing his own agenda (discussion of the third world) in a topic that is specifically about discussion of the first world, and is now serial posting assertions that he is on topic and it's just wasting space. As if it weren't bad enough that he's refusing to offer evidence for his position or even relate anything he says to the topic.

If he wants to discuss the third world, he should start a separate thread.

Because right now the discussion he wants to have is not the discussion that thread was started to have.

Kitchens Have Feelings Too
I don't know.

I think it's worth discussing.

Personally, I like a wood countertop for the island, but the main counter needs to be non-porous. White works in some instances, but it also reminds me of slumlords who white wash everything to hide how rundown their properties are.

While this one looks nice, I find it a little impractical:

The limitation of the wood worktop to the island and the general color scheme makes this one, in my opinion, closer to ideal:

I have more to say, but I'll wait till the thread is promoted.

Phascism on the Phorum
Apparently EvC is now the place where ideas get silenced for there phailure to conform to the accepted political agenda.

And where that silencing gets cheered.
