Not enough Bats in your belfry...

Some would argue that there are entirely too many...

A family unit is a good guess. Poor little things.

For the last two years we've had a pair of loggerhead shrikes nesting in some nearby trees. Now we have some juvenile shrikes who enjoy hanging out on our back fence. Boy are they loud! I can't figure out if they are trying to establish territory, or if they are just making noise for the sheer joy of it.

Thank you for red-xing your own post. I am happy to remove it, at your request, as it does provide a link to an inappropriate profile in a currently banned account.

Per your request, I will leave my response and your subsequent post standing, as I think that the discussion clarifies one of the issues you have raised.

Moderating is an imperfect "art" done with some imperfect software.

We do what we can to make our boards a pleasant place for most.

It's currently out of the technical reach of the mods (as you can see froma profile that hasn't changed in almost a week)
...so it pretty much gives you "carte-blanche" for even non-'kid friendly' content (until the official antiquated forum rules get a well-deserved update)


The offensive profile you have cited is in a currently banned account.

You are correct in that moderators cannot make changes to or hide profiles. If a profile is inappropriate, the user is asked to modify it. If the user does not comply, the account is banned.

Suggesting that a fellow community member post offensive material in a profile is neither good nor helpful advice.

Since we are currently engaged in the WOW event, I have changed my signature to my battle raccoon. (Go Team Raccoon Lovers!!!)

I just hope I remember how to change it back....

Do you know any forum experts that could help you? :-)


I believe that I do....

Even your husband of many years has not trained you yet.

"Trained???!!!"

Given an attitude like that, I predict that you will die alone.

Back from Wisconsin win!!!

You consider leaving Wisconsin a win???
I guess then, that you were visiting Eric's family again.
Shame on you for considering leaving our fine state a good thing.
May Eric whip you with a thousand noodles.
Virtual noodles, of course.

Meow.



I did not mean to imply that leaving Wisconsin was a win. I was simply posting in the most common format of this thread: State what you have just done (i.e. eaten breakfast, smoked a cigarette, washed the kitchen floor) and then follow it with the word "win".

I actually think that Wisconsin is a lovely state, especially in August when the grass is still green, the wildflowers are still blooming, most of the disease carrying ticks are gone, you don't inhale nearly as many insects when you breathe in, the bears are slightly less aggressive, its idiotic governor is on vacation, it's not deer huntin' season, and one does not have to worry about dying of hypothermia because one's car has just skidded off the icy road right into a ditch filled will several feet of freshly fallen snow.

Wisconsin... where the state motto should be "nine months of snow, three months of bugs".

Probably yes. That Next Generation episode about the meta-morph was without phaser fire, if I recall correctly. The Next Generation episode about the culture whose linguistic system was based on metaphors (one of my "favs", of course, as a lover of language) was a great example of the extremely judicious use of violence.

Not sure about the original Star Trek... better experts here than me. Same deal for Deep Space 9 and Voyager and most of the movies.

Anyway, a little phaser fire, used in moderation, can be a good thing. Non-stop phaser fire, explosions and falls from which one could not possibly survive physically intact are completely beyond my ability to appreciate.

If I were 19, perhaps I would think Star Trek Beyond was a great movie.

At 53, I am simply too old for such nonsense.

Phaser fire, fireballs, free-falls...

Star Trek movies do not HAVE to be action movies.

I'm too old for movies like this.
