    Personally, I'm holding out for 'Nittany Lion'.




    Yeah right. Any association with Penn State is toxic these days.

    You know, I always let that stuff directed at me slide back when. That was by choice; I don't choose to now. imageimage





    You once let stuff slide? Wow, how many decades ago was that? ;)

    And Steve Ballmer will appear on a giant screen behind Tim Cook to announce Office for iPad, and an investment in Apple.

    What a brilliant analysis and wonderful conclusion that you have come to.

    I suggest that you and any others who think like you should embark on a politically correct campaign to censor and ban all Nazi symbols from ever being displayed again.

    You can start by petitioning Spielberg, I noticed a few Nazi symbols in Schindler's List. How disgusting is that? Who does that guy think that he is? :lol:

    Ever played certain Call of Duty or Medal of Honor games? Oh my, what a despicable outrage! :lol:

    Ever see certain movies by Mel Brooks? The horror! :lol:

    Do you watch any movies at all?:lol:

    It is quite ironic that politically correct people who lack culture and are also ignorant of history seek to emulate those that they claim to despise. You'd fit right in wearing a brown shirt in the previous century.
    You don't want to hear what I suggest you do.

    I don't advocate censorship, and didn't say I did. I do advocate not being a jerk about serious stuff that people are sensitive about unless you have a damn good reason.

    Grow up and stop with the straw man bullshit.

    Cultured and educated you claim? Try using that culture and eductation to not be a rampant moron.

    This is Tim Cook's watershed moment. He can put up all the banners he wants around the world. But he better have something to show us geeks. Because if he doesn't Apple is on a slow decline.

    Why in the heck do you reference this moderator stuff? I see no correlation whatsoever.

    Ah ok, good to know. So when did you stop being a moderator, must have been last week, but I can't find the thread were the title was dropped. Just curious, no need to respond if you don't want to, obviously.

    <div class="definition">(n.)Someone who moderates a chatroom or message board. There are generally five types of moderators: 


    1. Asswipe: Moderator that likes to punish members for little or no reason, harasses members and then punishes them for harassing back or questioning them, or is an asshole in general to those around him, not including his suckup friends, who will respond to his powerabuse with: "lol", "pwned bitch", or "wut a fag". 


    2. Strict Moderator: Follows the rules by the book, no exceptions. Any rule infraction spotted will be punished, often without warning. Normally dreaded. 


    3. Do-Nothing Moderator: Moderator that acts more like a member than a moderator, only intervening in serious matters that require mod attention. Usually ignores rule infractions for fear of angering the <a href="http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=administrator" style="color:rgb(251,255,234);padding:2px 3px;background-color:rgb(102,152,203);" target="_blank">administrator</a>
     or stricter moderators. Usually friendly. 


    4. Badass: Best moderator there is. They are fair, and will usually joke around and let things go if the intention of the rule infraction was not fitting with the reason the rule was created. However, if someone is being a total idiot, especially flaming, they will proceed to argue with them for the sole purpose of getting them to make a fool of themselves, often to the point of losing their cool and posting a last "FUK U ALL!!!!!" message, at which point there is much<a href="http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=lulz" style="color:rgb(251,255,234);padding:2px 3px;background-color:rgb(102,152,203);" target="_blank">lulz</a>
     and the nooblet gets <a href="http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=b7" style="color:rgb(251,255,234);padding:2px 3px;background-color:rgb(102,152,203);" target="_blank">b7</a>
    . See <a href="http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Winrar" style="color:rgb(251,255,234);padding:2px 3px;background-color:rgb(102,152,203);" target="_blank">Winrar</a>
     


    5. Nutcase: Moderator that not only rarely enforces rules, but often breaks them themselves in the name of fun, or sometimes just out of boredom. Usually doesn't have modship for long, or is constantly scolded by other mods or the admin. Me. 


    These are the main five categories, there are several other types and combinations of types out there. 

     </div>
    <div class="example" style="font-style:italic;margin-top:5pt;margin-bottom:5pt;">"Ugh, I told that moderator that he's being a jerk, and he banned me. What an asswipe." 


    "That moderator is mad strict. She just suspended six members for spamming just because they had too much chatspeak." 


    "Is that dude even a moderator? He hasn't done jack through all this flooding." 


    "Haha, this moderator is so awesome." 


    "What the hell...? That guy just flooded six pages of the chat away... he's a moderator? Wtf?"</div>

    I really like these banners.  Best in years.

    Clean.  Well designed.  Thought provoking.

    We'll see if the keynote is half as brain juicing.

    Lemon Bon Bon.

    You don't need to sign your posts. But you are correct.

    The Romans invented a time-telling device, the sundial.
    With those Roman numerals on the banner, and rumors of an iwatch, I think the whole new world refers to the reinvention of the watch. A new device that can tell time?

    Or not. You know.

    Bullshit.  

    If Nazi (basically just the swastika apparently) imagery is so offensive, why was it perfectly fine to use it for over 40 years since the close of World War II and the defeat of the Nazis?  No one complained about it for 40 years, and then some nervous nellies got all het up about it and all of a sudden it's actually illegal in some countries to post a swastika.  Ridiculous.  

    Banning the swastika works right into the hands of the idiots that think is has any kind of "power" as a symbol.  
    It's the exact opposite of the right thing to do if you want people to stop using it.  

    Here is one of the worlds most famous Jewish guys doing it the right way (making fun of the swastika).

    Oh, and yeah, Metreon used to contain a Microsoft Store. It closed after 2 years, in 2001.


     


    Next thing Apple will buy Sony film business

    And if you choose the Mobile Version you can't see how many thumbs-up there are, and what people wrote, so you'll need to switch back and forth. Totally sucks.
