Re: Zach Horan (legendneverdies) Banned

I'm sorry but if a PM causes you to feel fear, maybe the internet is not the place for you. So says a user with a history of complaining to moderators whenever someone is a bit unkind to him in a post. If I let you (gnash) get away with it, you would only escalate the vulgarity of your posts. Call ...

I am firmly #TeamTalia on this one. Anyone surprised? No. Talia 4 Life. I didn't see this: "waving your arms in a hissy fit like manner and giving the stinkeye to the person who did ring in" I saw this: "waving your arms in frustration at not being able to get the hang of the buzzer and looking ove...

Re: LL66 (For the LLamas)

Thursday was a day of "when in doubt, guess" or "when in doubt, go for the obvious." Only missed cyanide; since carbon and nitrogen are two of the most abundant elements, why should their combination be poisonous? Q2, total guess; Q3, TOM of hanging; Q5, only composer I was sure is from the time per...

What did you put when they asked you how much money you lost?

In any case, I will be interested to hear what they say.

Re: Zach Horan (legendneverdies) Banned

As it is obvious Zach has been doing some really horrible things, and he appears to be escalating while making no distinction if a victim is a minor, I have reported Zach to the FBI. If anyone who has been directly victimized by Zach wishes to report him as well, ic3.gov is the website to make that...

I wonder if my "Amen to that" counts as a most common wrong answer (which is just Amen, not even a phrase).

Re: LL66 (For the LLamas)

Perhaps a more meaningful measure would be how many matches someone would have won with a better defense, compared to the number of non-trivial ( not 0(0) and not 9(6)) matches.

Plop. I fell right into the 1776 trap and guessed Jefferson. Didn't help that I never did memorize the Declaration, nor did I have the year of The Wealth of Nations internalized. Congrats to Audrey. Strong overall and a great recovery. She almost got a "Get off my TV!" after Massachusetts Bay, but ...

Have you all lost your minds? Posting stuff on the internet is not harassment. Furthermore, your concern with this guy trivializes incidents of real harassment.

Personally, I always read the same message into you-know-who’s choice of “legendneverdies” as his handle…”you can ban me but I will be back”…and I do have to say that I found that highly creepy myownself. And this tendency of his to mutate into another identity is yet another reason the Feds should...

There were 10 6(5)s in A-Horizon out of 28 people and 8 other (5)s of other scores. I feel bad for anyone who didn't give 3 to the Stroessner one or had their opponent miss a different one. Just a weird day with 5 unbelievably easy questions and 1 difficult you-know-it-or-you-don't one. I submitted...
