{Mod hat = ON}

Mark,
Angela's post does NOT give the mods "open season" on the Kittieman's posts. What it does do is serve you a warning that SOME of your posts overstep the line between what is acceptable and what is unacceptable. Using video, or third party quotes that make death threats is unacceptable on this forum (and has been for a long time). So take the hint, yes berate about your politicians (or who ever), but DO NOT make death threat, either veiled or outright. Posts containing such threats will be removed.

Note to other posters - the same applies to you, don't think that Mark is alone in this warning.

Dear friends, I'm afraid that my tolerance for the intolerant is at its end. If you feel similarly, please join me in my campaign to eliminate death threats from our forum.

Thank you for taking a principled stand Angela.
High RAC numbers are not a get out of jail free card. The rules must apply to everyone, or the rules mean nothing.

Now I gotta ask this.........

Why?

Obvious kitties are in pain. Why do you keep pouring alcohol into the wound? It just makes it hurt worse and prevents it ever healing. Are you a masochist and enjoy the pain?

Ask yourself, how many more kitties you could save if you didn't drink the booze? How many more work units of electricity could you crunch? How much bigger a donation to Seti could you make?

Why are 12 little steps so dang hard?

Why don't you want to be in control of yourself?
