See? It's easy to keep the riff-raff away. Make them 'ignore' you by doing exactly what pisses them off uncontrollably. It's so nice to have space to move and to breath freely without pests hanging about.

From BREITBART.com
President Donald Trump created the first national park to honor black people who fought in the Civil War with the designation of Camp Nelson in Nicholasville, Kentucky, as the nation’s newest National Monument.

The media paid little attention, but President Trump signed the proclamation on October 26 making Camp Nelson a national monument, Daily Wire noted.

Luckily no Breitbart infestation yet.

Just read Lurk's Reply #100.

Edit: It appears that the posters who link to alt-right sources, just love Neven's 'bothsidesism' decorum approach.

It's funny other how otherwise quite smart people do not get the simplest of things that happen right in front of their face. Even when it's explained to them in plain english as it happens. :)

While others never get to see the joke because you're plonked in their ignore list. lol

 A University of Pennsylvania study has proven that reducing social media use to 10 minutes a day (like that’s even possible) can help reduce depression and loneliness.

Feeling depressed, lonely, disconnected? A new study from the University of Pennsylvania suggests prolonged exposure to social media might be the cause – which for some will come as little surprise, even though it seems to be the exact opposite of what social networks are supposed to do.



Social media has become as fiercely competitive as the rest of our lives, with users struggling desperately with one another for likes, shares and followers, and now it is clear that this can have serious side-effects. While the study has identified the problem, the odds of anyone missing out on the latest cat memes and pictures of their friend’s lunch for something as trivial as mental health seems unlikely.

People keep telling me that this forum is social media too, so maybe that's why I often feel that way?

I'm neither happy or unhappy. I respect the position, and I understand where it's coming from. I'd be happier if we can start mitigating AGW for real without having had to wait for extreme AGW-fuelled events to do serious damage (except to Mar-a-lago, of course, that would be okay, right?).

It's out of our hands anyway, and of course, it's already happening.

I've stated repeatedly that I don't mind the occasional curse word or insult. But others do, and then they start complaining, and that means more work for Neven. And as Neven already has plenty of work online and offline, he gets unhappy.

Yesterday was an all time "Most Online" record if this is correct?
