Re: Poll: Is Donald Trump a Good President?

You are mistaken. Polls can only be created with the first message of a Topic. Looking back, it is clear that this Topic, and poll, were created nearly a year ago by Amy Probenski on 2017 Aug 20 12:33. As stated before, from time to time I will alter the Forum for clarity or cosmetics by reorganizin...

Re: Stonewall's Chatter (Running the Forum, tech, etc.)

This boils the net neutrality issue down to https://t.co/9EWjtbenv8 terms that anybody can understand . Our only hope is that the Congress will reverse this stupid FCC action. PS. The end shot is hilarious, a takeoff on this photo of the FCC Chairman who got his Republican colleagues to do this dumb...

Re: BANG !

Did you notice AO and Stonewall took off all the GUN TOTING and GUN SHOOTING smileys?? Your Administrator does not understand this remark. Please explain: ⋅ No change has occurred for years in the list of available smileys. I see two that have guns in them. Do we need more? ⋅ I ...

Re: Stonewall's Chatter (Running the Forum, tech, etc.)

I seldom post here, but this issue is so important to me. All my worst fears were realized, and the Republican dominated FCC has rewritten the rules to hand over monopolistic control of our most precious modern communications medium. Internet Neutrality has been destroyed by Republicans. This act of...

Your forum administrator is neither liberal nor conservative. He aims to be an impartial provider of this Rockbridge Forum service that people will enjoy to air their views, whatever they may be. He does not delete postings, ever, unless they cross a line into the unlawful, a situation that has neve...

A Fox News outlet story on how Republican-driven loss of net neutrality will impact Netflix and small startups. It is not pretty.

Stonewall's global intelligence network has revealed a disturbing fact. Our beloved Coondog has been struck down, we hope only temporarily, by a life-threatening event. We believe he is in good hands and is recovering, if slowly as he emerges from a dire medical emergency. We offer best wishes to hi...
