I'm about to disappear for a few months and was wondering if anyone would like to step up and assist with the moderation of this site while I'm gone.
There's not a lot to do given I have a don't delete anything policy.
We do get a few spammers a week though. When they appear I delete their account and all their content. The quickest way to spot this is to subscribe to all content and, when a dodgy one comes though, click through to the site, click the authors name, edit and delete. It's less than a minute in most cases.
So, any takers?
Our second meetup in scheduled for Saturday December 3rd, 2:30pm at The Bank on Victoria Street. We'll probably be sitting out the back.
For our second meetup we thought we'd try a loose theme, so we'll be peering into the misty realm of the future and the great beyond. Psychics and Clairvoyants of all shapes and sizes will be the topic of the day, please bring along any info or stories of personal experiences.
Hope to see you there!
I'm planning on voting for the Greens this year. There's a lot of their core policy that I back and I trust them more than any of the others. Most of my attention to them is due to @GarethMP who seems to be one of the few intelligent MPs out there that has a clue when it comes to technology and the nature of the internet. He was one of the few that campaigned against and voted against a law removed the "innocent until proven guilty" policy from the books. In case you weren't aware you are now automatically assumed to be guilty by the mere accusation of downloading pirated materials.
Is there an account that donations can be paid into? I dislike Paypal and will not be using it to make donations.
Following up on the Chiro fixes DNA post, I found that the General Chiropractic Council in the UK doesn't promote subluxation as an actual mechanism.
The chiropractic vertebral subluxation complex is an historical concept but it remains a theoretical model. It is not supported by any clinical research evidence that would allow claims to be made that it
is the cause of disease.
I just found this over at Forbes.com.
The headline above should be good for a laugh, but believe it or not, chiropracters around the world are claiming that they can help your body repair its DNA. All of them cite the same 2005 article as evidence, so I read the article to find out what it was all about.
I have few friends that claim to be religious and when I see shit like this I wonder how they can be so firm in their position. This is just disgusting. How can they claim 'moral conviction' as an exception when the law itself is so blatantly immoral?
In Michigan, the State’s Republican-controlled Senate has passed an anti-bullying law named after a gay victim.
Good thing you might think. Except it’s not.
Any progress on a venue?
It appears we have interest from Hawkes Bay also.
Steve Darroch should be joining the forums soon, if he's not already a member. If you're from the Hawkes Bay region and are interested in helping out or just coming along now would be a great time to make yourself known. :)
So, it looks like there's at least one carload heading from Wellington to Hamilton for the first meetup. There may even be one from Auckland. Now to see how many more we can get...
