    This of course will not be enforced, but you can expect PI levels of neg rep from if you post during those times. Fair warning. Crimson White










    Maybe it would be easier on everyone if you just shut the board down for 20 minutes.

    I agree. The threads should be locked for that time...but the board should stay open for viewing and PMs etc.

    I really don't understand why we wallow in victimhood on 9.11. there's remembering and there's being professional victims.

    I have to say, i feel like the best way to give the finger to the people who orchestrated that type of destruction is to rebuild and go on. But it's been nine years and it's still a hole in the ground....

    Terrorists and terrorist sympathizers must get a rush every time we do this.

    Everyone deals with grief in different ways. And Fuck the terrorists and their sympathizers. If they think they've won I don't give a crap. We cannot get into the habit of doing or not doing something becasue it may set a terrorist in motion. Do that and then they have won. so FUCK THEM ALL.

    Actually, I think wallowing lets them win. In Israel, when something gets blown up, its cleaned up and re-built. you'd never even know they noticed. and they've had losses proportionate to their population that 9/11 was to ours.

    And today I get to hear a lot of people talk about how they should re-play something that was the worst day EVER... do you really think we need to *see* and *smell* that again?

    why would we do that?

    and the best... the best... is we have loons of all political persuasions protesting down there today. so much for honoring the day. :cuckoo:

    A moment of silence is specifically FOR remembering,

    and how you manage to misconstrue it into "Wallowing In Victimhood" is beyond me.
