[Report] Possible post past ban in NS Olympic sign-ups

Rwekaza City wrote:RWEKAZALAND PLAYERS[/size] (Image) (I Had to used this alt because my main was not working)

That's an interesting claim. I can think of a few technical reasons for it (lost password, for example), but I can also think of a much more common reason. Could somebody look into this, please?

You can block whomever you want to -- people don't have a right to talk to you if you don't want to talk to them. Right? A moderator of Max Barry's personal father knows best site talks about rights online? :P Practically, of course, it depends on the site's ToS and tools. Here, of course, nobody c...

I don't think it's that. Rather, the poor are just naturally more inclined to be dangerous. Your random middle or upper class person is very unlikely to be involved with violent crime. Where as much of the poor either live off crime or live near to and around those that do which makes them far more...

Of course. Two of the biggest fireworks stores in the region are just south of Philly, and another one is just north of it. And people are buying fireworks like crazy; thousands of dollars worth at a shot.

Within a single mission, yes: if NASA's approved a (notional) billion dollar mission, spending less on the booster means there's more to spend on science for that mission. But the notion that NASA's budget is a slush fund, and that saving money on, for example, manned missions to the space station ...
