Say I'm an online maths tutor.

I don't do maths in college, so that wouldn't work - also, even if I did, "what's his/her name? I didn't see him/her at your school! Are you lying to me?"

A very interesting idea, but alas I do not think it wise that I participate.

Given the maddening effect that minorities having an opinion generally engenders in the fanatics, and the fact that I know of at least two specific individuals from our august ranks who are sufficiently enraged by my existence to waste their limited hours on this earth trying to muckrake and spread false rumours offsite, it does not seem personally wise.

I would advise that anyone who does join thinks very hard first about whether they've made any enemies here or if they've ever said anything controversial that might cause them issues if someone obsessive manages to identify them IRL from some obscure detail or another.

Good luck, and I hope this does not backfire on anyone.

I stopped posting personally identifying information on the internet when that guy several years ago on the UK politics thread (DOS person I believe) sent me a tg with a handy list of all of it.
That was creepy as fuck.

Oh yes, I remember that. There were also rumours a year or so ago of a user having someone directly threatening them with the release of personal information to employers if they didn't leave the site or if the threat was reported.

GHRs are very bad for this sort of thing since if it happens offsite and you don't have direct documentary proof that x person on the site is y person over here then the moderators can't do a thing about it other than advise you to block them. Which is perfectly understandble because otherwise that can be exploited itself, but rather means that anyone who does this sort of thing can get away with it unless they're utterly indiscreet in how they do it.

Why? Being in the virtual presence of drinkers isn't (afaik) illegal anywhere. It's not like being in a bar (drinking or not, forbidden).

It's implied that we'll all be drinking, rather than this being one of those family bars that has the ball pit that the kids can be dumped into while the adults drink.

Nobel Hobos 2 wrote:The host is in the US, would it therefore follow that no-one under 21 should attend? That would rule out 18-20 year olds who can legally drink in their own countries.

Wouldn't affect me anyway, as I'm so far past those ages that they are now distant specks on the horizon behind me.

Someone did say he wouldn't be drinking. I'll of course be drinking because it is one of those days that has 'day' at the end of it.

I know the feeling dude. I grew up with parents like that. Joined the military at 18 to get the fuck away


I moved away for two years to escape mine...but then my mom begged me to come help her with a terminally ill dog and I didn't say no, and I sold my place and moved back in.

I moved out again in May of 2019 but after a summer of hell with a cheap dime store amos and Andy ripoff, some mandingo looking ass bitch, a whore, a weeb (me and him actually are friends so we straight), a baby mama, several children and a crackhead all inside of one trailer, I said screw it and reluctantly moved back in with them.

Both of my parents can be real tools. I think much of what they do with me is just so they can protect their own asses and so they can feel better than me. They want to point their fingers and say "you're the problem." I'm a convenient scapegoat. I abandoned any notion that they really respected me back when I was 16 and while I can't stop loving my mom and dad, I'm pretty sure they stopped loving me at like 10. Up till the lockdown I spent most of my time with my friends, because I really don't get along with them. Unfortunately I'm stuck under the same roof with them now and I gotta deal with them bitching about everything everyday. Once this lockdown ends, I'm going back to spending dawn till dusk either at work or out on the streets.

They can do whatever they do without me around and I'll either be cashing you out at my job, or I'll be at some nightclub or hookah lounge or bar or bowling alley in Utica or Warren, and I'll be drinking and toking till past midnight. Happy hour will be returning fr at that time and it won't remain online.

why do I relate so much - in my case, since my other sibling left years ago, I'm the only available person they can point at

Honestly, if one were to keep a list of every complaint as well, I think you'd eventually run out of space within a fortnight.

They claim I'm abusive. Me? I didnt call them idiots. I never told them they were a monster. I never said everyone would abandon them.

So here is how I am going to do this. Thursday (tomorrow) I will go through this thread and list all the people interested.
I will then ask for team leaders and assign them people.

At Saturday when I set up the Conference call I will TG the team leaders who will TG those directly under them. I will ask Team Leaders to respond so I know they received the message and our TGing those assigned under them.

I'm interested but also deeply anxious and scared of strangers. I'm thinking a tentative "sure why not" atm.

NSG virtual happy hour this Saturday: join us on zoom, what could possibly go wrong?

“Silent acquiescence in the face of tyranny is no better than outright agreement." - C.J. Redwine
“The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles." - Jeff Cooper
