They are very young. If he truly is smart he may start to analyze as time passes. I felt sorry for them and would just give them a good meal and let them talk about what they wanted, which was usually their homes.

Everyone here is on a privately supported board. Their board their rules. There is no need for angry rants against the moderators. I completely support the mods and appreciate their unpaid efforts. If people would take a minute and read the board guidelines and go by them, there would be no need for these off-topic threads started to insult the mods. I think the mods have shown great patience

Thanks Admins. He always uses the same offensive terms, so I will be on the lookout for someone new writing in the same style. You can change your name but not your vocabulary. I had been ignoring his posts for a while, since I had a poor opinion of him, it surprised me that so many long-term regulars were responding every time he started yet another of his many topics. Thank you, CZ, for k

Gosh! So, over 100 MLM companies founded in Salt Lake? Seems a very lucrative business for the people at the top... not so much for others. Just read that the founders of Uber just became Billionaires...again, don’t think the people actually driving cars and picking up passengers are doing that well! Thanks for the link, a real eye-opener!

It seems to be common now to just send everybody to PT. My experience is the co-pays are expensive and it does nothing. But maybe saves insurance companies money. Good luck with your surgery. They have probably improved it since you had it 20 years ago but don’t count on getting any pain pills after, due to the opioid crisis.

Amazing that this research was so suppressed apparently because it does not fit the prevailing paradigm of everything being the fault of the drug companies.

Anon Vega, The posts here should help answer your questions about poker. But since you mentioned you have also been counseled about playing Halo, I think you could legitimately challenge anyone to find that prohibition in D&C or BoM as I’m sure they weren’t thought up by JS back when he was making that stuff up.

Secular Priest, I have reread your question and gave it a Little more thought. I believe what you are getting to is questioning the details of the changes, which lead to to question the big stuff that you reference: the creation. I believe if you follow your questions to their logical end you will get to where most of us here are: not believing any of it. I understand that it might

Hi Felix, I am not a moderator but you can email a question to them directly. Usually if you review the guidelines carefully you will find the answer. It also could just be a technical glitch with your post. Good luck!

I don’t know of this specific instance but in general, yes, google has a revenue stream for search term responses to be topped. You should be able to bookmark this site on your phone so you get to it via favorites instead of a google search.
