Libmand fears no mod,

For he carries a pitchfork!

(Which symbolizes the freedom to "fork" content and start a new project when the old one goes fascist.)

On the basis of that...

Can't we all just get along?

I can explain it in a different thread if you prefer.

Yes please start / link to a thread (on another BBS perhaps).

I don't think clothing should be mandated by law, but I do think "the law" should protect the rights of business to have mandated dress codes for their employees and anyone who wishes to enter their property.

If I'm trolling I'm a really bad troll, because I only seem to be able to irritate wtfk, who has a propensity to be difficult with people that he disagrees with and me in particular. Nobody else made a big deal about anything I said in this thread except him. Am I the troll or is he?

I have a propensity to be difficult with people who deliberately talk in circles and don't make sense.  In the big picture, that's mostly you.
Why do you talk as if any disagreement between us is because I choose to make your life more difficult? Anytime you think I'm wrong you think I'm deliberately wrong, like I actually know what's right and choose to say something else anyways. Being immature and difficult doesn't advance either of our lives in any way.

Would you like to answer the actual question that I asked?

I'll make one in the No-Hijack zone soon.

Get together with a bunch of like-minded folks, buy a vast tract, and declare it "in common".

The owner of this thread can move it straight to the hi-jack free  zone. So basically, any thread can be in there at any time.

No, I answered it and you have no ground to stand on, so you've ignored it and claimed victory.

Similar question: Have you stopped murdering people yet?

Most murderers aren't that honest.
