  • I think the censorship is silly. For one thing, if somebody wants to pepper their thoughts with expletives, I say let 'em. Just like in real life. It gives you a better idea of the intelligence level of the "speaker." For another thing, it's i…
    in Censorship? Comment by spotbug June 2002
  • Off until I get to, oh, 300. Then on. Then off again when I get to, let's say, 1000. Not on again after that. So, basically, only on while I'm between 299 and 1000; in that range, the count says, "hey, I've been here a bit, but I'm not c…
  • 9/30 phone call not for Serial Number The contest rules clearly state that the contest runs from 8/26/02 to 12/31/02. It wouldn't make any sense to make the start date 8/26 if you couldn't enter until making that phone call on 9/30. Why wouldn't …

  • I suck at these puzzles, but has anybody tried translating the first two keys (e4c6 and d4d5) into the old chess notation format as in that chess picture? I tried "q4kb6," "q5kb3," "k4k5" and "k5k4." They were invalid. I was just guessing at the …

  • I'd really like to see the commercial(s), but... Negative, comparison advertising, where a specific competitor is mentioned and even shown is such an extremely bad (ineffective) form of advertising (for various reasons) that, usually, there's an …

  • That other guy in the photo looks... hmmm... I don't know... he's really interested in Mr. Jobs. SJ's probably thinking, "Maybe if I just stand really still and don't make eye contact, he'll go away. Go away, go away... away."
