Hey there,

 

I have BB listed as showing at 1135 PM Thursday Night, to make room for the football game again. I'm in the Los Angeles area. Under the Dome, however, is on at it's usual time.

 

Just a heads up if you all aren't aware.

It all exists, if you are viewing the full HT.

If anyone is still using the outdated 800 x 600 screen resolution on your computer, you will not see the full HT. As explained in the Upgrade Tour thread (a good "dummies" read), the new HT is "responsive," which means as your screen narrows, parts of HT such as the sidebar with all that useful information "collapse" and/or disappear to make room for the really important stuff, like the forums. This is so the site seamlessly transitions from desktops to tablets to cell phones. The new forum version is designed for current web standards including a minimum screen resolution of 1024 pixels wide; if your resolution is set below that or your resize your browser below about 980 pixels in width, the sidebar disappears and menus start to collapse.

Hey, I just had an idea for a thread... so I'm in a super-pissy mood today, and all of the TV ads that normally annoy the shit out of me are almost inciting me to violence, today, punching whoever is responsible for those atrocities right in the scrum.

On the other hand, some of them are pretty funny.

There's a whole website something about "commercials i hate" or some such, that I found in doing a quick google to see if anyone else thought the ads I hate are incredibly stupid or if I'm just in a really bad mood today... turns out I'm not alone.  

Anyway, the snark over there almost made me think of here.  We might have fun snarking on stupid ads in the off-season... the people here are super-good at insults and stuff.

Any chance that recappers can refrain from using the word "midget"? It's as derogatory as "faggot" or "tranny" and I am pretty sure those wouldn't be used on this site. Don't get me wrong, I love the snark - but it's much funnier when it's based on a person's house behavior/words/game play, and not their physicality. Making fun of someone for their size seems like a cheap shot when there's so much else to skewer. 

Thanks!

Thank you for the suggestion, however we don't really tell recappers what language to use. That generally sorts itself out. It's like...I hate the c-word. Haaate it. But I'd never tell anyone here not to use it. Occasionally some have crossed the invisible line and we handle that behind the scenes. 

Now, someone may see your suggestion and think twice about using the term, so there is that.

Also, cheap shots are the foundation of HT.

Appreciate that you don't want to censor, but there are lines (invisible or visible) that make sense not to cross, and using an epithet that is insulting to a segment of the population is that line for me. Sorry to learn your policy is to just let it "sort itself out." I don't have much interest in waiting for that to happen, though.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts, medusa. We appreciate all points of view and choice of words. That's what HT is all about.
