The Show / Re: Car registration
« on: November 05, 2011, 10:08:53 PM »
I just moved to NH and my tags are good until April. Can I put off registering until then?

Not legally.  When you move to NH you only have a certain amount of days before you have to register and get inspected in NH.  It is either 30 or 60 days and explained pretty well on the DMV website.
You have 60 days once you establish "residency" in NH to change your vehicle registration according to NH RSA 261:45.

Also check out the following quotes for some legal definitions related to residency vs domicile:

Quote from: RSA 259:23 Domicile
RSA 259:23 Domicile. ""Domicile'' shall mean a natural person taking up residence in a town or city within the state and includes but is not limited to occupying a primary place of habitation, placing children in a public school within the state, accepting gainful employment, or being a registered voter liable for a resident tax, provided, however, that no person shall be considered to be domiciled in this state who simultaneously claims residence in any other state for any of the purposes indicated above. In the case of other than a natural person, domicile shall also apply in the case of vehicles principally garaged or kept on the premises of a firm or corporation with a place of business within the state.

Quote from: 259:88 Resident.
RSA 259:88 Resident. ""Resident'' shall mean a resident of the state as defined in RSA 21:6, except that no person shall be deemed to be a resident who claims residence in any other state for any purpose.

Quote from: RSA 21:6 Resident; Inhabitant.
RSA 21:6 Resident; Inhabitant. A resident or inhabitant or both of this state and of any city, town or other political subdivision of this state shall be a person who is domiciled or has a place of abode or both in this state and in any city, town or other political subdivision of this state, and who has, through all of his actions, demonstrated a current intent to designate that place of abode as his principal place of physical presence for the indefinite future to the exclusion of all others.

Quote from: RSA 21:6-a Residence
RSA 21:6-a Residence. Residence or residency shall mean a person's place of abode or domicile. The place of abode or domicile is that designated by a person as his principal place of physical presence for the indefinite future to the exclusion of all others. Such residence or residency shall not be interrupted or lost by a temporary absence from it, if there is an intent to return to such residence or residency as the principal place of physical presence.

I don't know a lot of the behind the scenes.
So, why are you including yourself in a months-old argument, if you don't know a fucking thing about it?  

To me, this speaks volumes.  
I am sorry, I didn't know this was a private behind-the-scenes conversation...  :?

I wouldn't dream or dare to presume my position is valid, if I were you.  Its like watching the last half-hour of a movie, and telling everyone you're an expert on the plot.
You are horrible with analogies. Your analogy presupposes that I somehow indicated I was an expert on you, the BBS moderator flame war, or life in general. I never did so. I merely pointed out that you were and are flying off the handle and it seemed unjustified; while pointing out that I don't know a lot of the back-story. I purposely indicated that I was only responding to your current outburst which seemed over-the-top.

I suggest that you soften your responses if you want to win friends and influence people in this new era of FTL BBS.

Its a fine analogy, and I'll stick with it.  If you want to throw your two cents into the ring, go review the shit you're commenting on.

I don't care what you are, then or now. 

Nobody says I have to like you.
Never asked for anyone to care about me "then or now." I read the entire thread before commenting in the thread and it was limited to your postings within the thread. I came at you harsh because you appeared to be way off base and was sarcastic by posting the ignore list url. If you want to move forward I would like that. If you want to stay mad with me that's up to you. I can use colorful language too while making demands, but would more or less people think I'm a fucking hot head...?

Oh..  and as I have been anointed a Global Moderator I have used my new ability to designate assawyer a member of the "FTL Crew." 
Oooooh, pretty blue stars and a fancy title!  :D
He is the FTL Facebook page admin and also a #LRN chat operator...  so as he donates his time to the furtherance of FTL and LRN,
It is all true, though I am "one" of the FTL Facebook page admins. I can't take all the credit.

I believe he deserves the title.   8)

You kinda stepped in into the middle of a conflict that has spread across months and probably a half dozen threads. I totally get that that can tint your view of the situation. Totally understandable.

Just keep in mind what Brasky has DONE versus what he had said. Also, watch carefully exactly what he says rather than how he says it.
Which is why I made the initial post in the first place, outsiders/new posters would likely have a very different view of Brasky than others that have followed what he's said and done. I pretty much said "knock the ess off" without using those words; harsh, yes, but I don't mind calling it how I see it even if it puts me in a hornets nest.  8)

Bill Brasky is making it easier for me to think that he's difficult to deal with and what people have said about him in this thread have more credibility.

Your interactions with him must have been limited so far. This stuff is a culmination of a couple years of back and forth between quite a few users.

Brasky is one of the mellower people around here and an all around good guy.

People aren't allowed to post racist crap on the BBS.

Hellbilly/Aunt Bee has, in the past, taken, shall we say, ambiguous stances on the issue of race, and definitely has a... significant interest in the subject and pushing the boundaries, if not relentlessly and offensively then at least consistently.

Consistently to the point where I and other people on the BBS, mods or not, have called him a racist. He chooses to deny this by saying that he is ""Not a bigot."

Fine.

But at the center of every single topic about race and racism and ethnicity and all of that wrapped up with genetics you will find no one on the BBS more active than "Aunt Bee"

I've had angry and annoyed outbursts about it, other people have as well. Brasky deserves a turn.

The fact that Aunt Bee/Hellbilly continues to be tolerated in regards to this subject is that he never pokes more than a couple toes over the line, and we are, in fact tolerant, contrary to what some people may tell you.

But lemme tell you this - There's a threshold for dancing on the line. Toes in, wiggling fingers over it, pissing over it, that sort of thing has eventual limits.

Brasky is a mod. He hasn't banned Aunt Bee. He has told him to knock it off, and now to fuck off.

Aunt Bee will probably gladly admit that he's trying to push buttons. Well he pushed 'em and now he got yelled at. Aw shucks.
This is what I would have preferred to see from Brasky. I appreciate there is a lot of back-and-forth that I am not aware of. If "Brasky is one of the mellower people" he definitely isn't showing it in this thread.

Moving on, hopefully the race baiting trolls will be stamped out and moderators will punish them and other miscreants accordingly.  Love live FTL BBS 2.0.1

" . " - sounds like you're still on one.

Two things, short as shit:

1. The BBS has a "No Racism & Bigotry" rule. You were enforcing a "No N-Word" rule. Those two are not the same.
2. There are obvious workarounds to most any rule. In the spirit of FTL in general (big fans of pointing out the pointlessness in petty rules - manicure licenses, etc.) my intent was to show you a loophole - the username.

I did nothing to provoke you on a personal level (as in lookin ya right in the eye), you chose to make it personal with lame name-calling. Dunno why, but I'm still surprised at how emotional you seem to be about it. To me it's still just two members of a forum having an exchange, light jabs, etc. and certainly nothing major. Ease up, Dude.

Don't fucking talk to me. 
Bill Brasky, you have an ignore list, it appears you need to use it and/or calm the eff down and discuss things rationally. As someone looking in you're not doing yourself any favors by flying off the handle when someone brings up what appear to be valid and truthful critiques of your moderation.

Mind your own business.
You again make my point for me Bill Brasky.

Not to imply that you've chosen sides or anything - but thanks assawyer for the words.
You're welcome Aunt Bee. I haven't taken sides because I don't know a lot of the behind the scenes. Bill Brasky is making it easier for me to think that he's difficult to deal with and what people have said about him in this thread have more credibility.

The Show / Re: Mark and Stephanie 9/24/11 show
« on: September 29, 2011, 03:06:35 PM »
Denis is right. I soooo wanted Stephanie to complain when Denis chimed in when he was guest hosting and that thin skinned chick called in.
I liked the Luther/ Derrick show. Mark could take a break and let those two bicker once a week.
Paraphrasing:
Luther "We worked and helped people and you guys got more attention in the media by partying and getting high!"
Derrick "yeah but...." *asked every new caller if the protesters partied*
I think stuff like that is hysterical.
Nah, Denis is wrong-
I agree with Denis.

I think Nemi did a great job; look forward to her hosting more shows. Even if she is a friend of Denis...  :wink:

You yourself said that if Ian and Sam had allowed the police to search that they would have been allowed to remain.

Heika showed she was drinking water, and was generally cooperative.  She was explicitly allowed to stay.  I'd argue that she was allowed to stay because she was being cooperative, not _directly_ because she allowed them to examine her bottle, though that was a component of her cooperation.  The cop _defends_ her because of this cooperation she shows: she wants to assure them she's not want to disrupt things.  Meanwhile Ian and Sam argue and Sam wanders off to film and berate the Mayor and Manager.

If Ian and Sam had allowed a search but stayed unruly otherwise, _perhaps_ they might have been allowed to stay, perhaps not to due to otherwise lack of cooperation and not sitting quietly for the meeting to continue.  We won't know now, will we?  As I said, I think Monica's got the case here... if she was otherwise quiet, and merely refused to be searched.  Likely, they'll claim she was 'part of the group' and so Sam/Ian's behavior takes them all out.  Next time, be individuals, sit apart from each other... don't let them lump you together so one bad apple can take you all out (this applies to lots of situations, not just this one)
Seth, let me see if I understand you correctly. Do you think:
*Ian and Sam were disruptive because they inquired from the Mayor who he was referring to drinking/having alcohol/containers etc
*Ian and Sam weren't being disruptive because they drank from their containers
*Because Ian and Sam didn't give up their rights regarding a search they were further being disruptive so they had to leave
*Heika was cooperative because in part she gave up her right against a search, and as such she was allowed to stay
*People who disagree/question government officials are inherently disruptive

Is that a fair summary of your position? Do you think that people who make information requests of the chair are disruptive? Or are they only disruptive if they are also mocking the government body that is having the meeting?
