  2. Re: What Is Socialist And How Successful Is it

    Part of the problem is precisely the fact that China is not particularly socialist any more. It's closer to authoritarian capitalism. It means that it can compete directly with more obviously...

    You followed the rules, so why would I? I don't care what your opinions are, only how you express them.

    Re: What Is 2019-2020 Reality Fake OR Fact

    It is only censorship when a government does it. Because "Free Speech" only applies to governments. What you are asking for (nay, demanding) is the right to be as offensive as you want in someone...

    If you are going to cite free speech arguments, please, please, please actually understand the meaning of "free speech" first. It means the right not to be arrested for anything you say. That's it....

    Re: PCI3 Video card recommendation

    Photoshop is doing all the work in RAM and CPU, so the gfx card isn't that important. I'm personally an nVidia man, so I'd say best 20xx series card you can afford. You might also consider an older...

    Ah -"asking for a friend". Of course you are.

    Actually using the expression "concentration camps" is exactly correct, as in the original use of the expression, which is the British in the Boer...

    But that's also the point of dog-whistle statements: the statement in question can be taken either way. The supporters know it's racist, and they agree with it. The opposition claim it's racist, but...

    No, I act as the moderator. In order to describe a person's bad behaviour I am going to have to say things that they might well consider an insult. Of course, if they follow the rules I will never...

    What makes you think these are mutually exclusive? "In school" and "behave like you're in school" are not the same thing. I've seen children who behave like adults and adults who behave children. I'm...

    Re: From monday 22nd July a new rule...

    Let's try and keep this simple.

    1) This is not TLR.
    2) This is not other places either.

    Therefore neither of these facts are relevant. I do not expect you to be "nice", but I expect you to...

    Well, first, that rule violation did occur, and you just agreed that it did. The rules are there to be enforced. I enforced them. Why are you now complaining?

    Second, if you want rambling threads...

    Re: We need a new name

    While technically it is off topic, it is at least reasonably thought out. I' may move it to a new thread later, so it becomes the topic.

    From Monday there will be a new rule:

    STAY ON TOPIC.

    If your post is not relevant, and especially if it's little more than a "me too" post then it will be removed. If you have nothing useful...

    Also, going briefly back to the topic at hand, I think "The Crucible" is the best suggestion so far. Anyone any serious objections?
