    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...

    Re: What Is 2019-2020 Reality Fake OR Fact

    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...

    Re: What Is 2019-2020 Reality Fake OR Fact

    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: We need a new name

    I am not enforcing rules retrospectively. As you almost certainly know, since all the old posts that broke that rule are still there.

    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: Rolleyes News of the Day II

    You know "Me Too" posts are banned. What made you think a thread that consisted of nothing else was going to be allowed? The ban does include "Me Too" about items from the news. If you want to debate...

    The story is/was legit, but your comments were not. Hence the deletion.

    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 22nd July a new rule...

    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?

    Re: We need a new name

    So you are saying that because today's politics are so polarised, we should polarise them more? And I'm always worried when someone suggests that what is needed is "firm resolve and a strong spine"....

    3) Ditto for being anti-Trump. Because...

    In psychology, this is called "transference".
