Given that some people treat their cats as gods, isn't Rule 4 being violated?
Quoted from Rules:
No politics (including enviro-politics[^]), no sex, no religion. This is a community for software development. There are plenty of other sites that are far more appropriate for these discussions. Or if you must, use the Back Room[^] - but enter at your own risk.
If you have an important point to make, don't try to be subtle or clever. Use a pile driver. Hit the point once. Then come back and hit it again. Then hit it a third time - a tremendous whack.
Anything that is unrelated to elephants is irrelephant Anonymous - The problem with quotes on the internet is that you can never tell if they're genuine Winston Churchill, 1944 - Never argue with a fool. Onlookers may not be able to tell the difference. Mark Twain
Just imagine your last post in an old black and white newsreel, the booming voice of the narrator reading your text and perhaps a flag waving in the background.
Only some commie bastard would not agree with you, right? Connecting propaganda (Mickeysoft tools to make awesome blah blah blah) with 'awesome' ("running intergalactic empires blah blah blah") and something one can't possibly have anything against ("...putting food on the table...") is one of the simplest tricks of rhetorical manipulation. And yes, manipulation is by its very nature dishonest.
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.
Actually, your post violates the rules. There are ethnic groups active today whose ancestors treated cats as representatives on Earth of deities of one sort or another. On that basis, your post can be considered political and therefore inappropriate for the Lounge.
