Is the forum spammy? I notice that we've been blocked by AT&T again. I'm considering some other options for managing the outgoing mail.
No, sorry, I didn't mean to imply that. Was just acknowledging the implication in my statement.

Re: My money owns me

This type of thing is a luxury I'd be able to afford. I loathe commercial air travel, but the step up to any kind of private solution is an order of magnitude more expensive. Maybe a binary order of magnitude but not a decimal one. Perhaps things have changed since I looked, or I was looking at the...

Re: When the cops are the criminals

It isn't quite as clear for actions that take place off duty, when the officer is acting as an ordinary citizen. Whether or not a crime is prosecuted, and whether the officer/suspect is guilty or innocent, shouldn't have anything to do with his status as a policeman unless it related to being a pol...

Re: When the cops are the criminals

...any number of things could have killed their kid, and if they had cared enough, they could have prevented it. True, but those other things didn't. In this case, it was the actions of the officer that triggered the outcome. Agree that the parents made a poor choice, but I also believe that those ...

Re: Privacy terms - Google Drive vs OneDrive

Lesson: never let anyone else "manage" your domain for you. Register it yourself. Isn't this true of most things in life? No one else is as invested as you are, as is likely to mess it up. I keep a personal domain for email, and use KolabNow as a host. One day I'll just set up my own mail server, b...

Welcome! I'm curious, how much effort goes into maintaining all of this? One of the nice things about the HBPP is it's incredibly low-maintenance.

How much time do you spend maintaining your allocations in a given month?

Re: Taxes on APMEX Gold

If you have an account, I believe APMEX will keep a history....I believe mine goes back 8 years or so. I've bought PMs from a few places, but always been happy with APMEX. Depending what you're buying (and whether you're willing to buy what's cheap/on offer), I haven't found their prices to be far o...

there are high percentage of the callers who self-identify themselves as either a Democrat or a Republican.
Curious, do you (or anyone else here) think most people are that way?

Re: 55%?

She was addressing Republicans in the context of Republican voters, not Republican politicians. That is what I understood and was responding to. I think it's a disservice to our country to label individual voters as being "in" a party, vs voting for one (or voting for a candidate who's a member of ...

Re: 55%?

"Today, 55% of Republicans and 64% of Democrats say they have few or no friends in the opposite party." Note the terminology... " in the opposite party". It's not a sports team, nor a life-long, exclusive commitment. Politicians may be members of a party, but to try to cast voters in such a single-...
