Thankfully, the anti-science propaganda campaign surrounding man-made climate change seems to have lost some of its effect.

Are you seeing storm clouds on the horizon? Two recent studies suggest that the latest anti-science campaign is following its forerunners--the propaganda campaigns attempting to refute science that tobacco causes cancer, that CFC's caused the hole in the ozone layer, and so on—into oblivion. Global warming denial seems to have climbed to a peak in 2010, and global warming acceptance is now climbing. This bodes well for rational public policy.

moderation.. found on the backyard chickens website. a forum member suggests the Corgi and/or the Miniature Pinscher as being suitable for the protection of your chickens.

sometimes life offers a tidbit of decent humanity. after over 200 pages of relative nonsense, stillhere and mythravere's exchanges bloom into a wonderful expression of humanity, compassion and decency...which is worthy of a pause in life to acknowledge.

Speaking of coyotes. When I was still living with my parents out in the country I came home real late one night. As soon as I shut the door on my car I started hearing this huge amount of "crying" from on top the hill above my parents house.

I bet there was at least 10 coyotes up there going after something.

Well that sent the hairs right up on the back of my neck. And by sound of them I'd say they were no more than a few hundred yards away.

So quickly got my rear end inside. Even though I was a short distance from the house.

Talk about freaky.

"You are not worthless, no one is. If my jabs caused that level of feeling, well, that aint right."

You didn't cause me to develop those feelings. I've had them since I was in school.

I mean when you are in those learning disability classes(math was the only one I was in)and it gets to the point that in high school they pretty much say well not much we can do here....and hands you a calculator. You can't help but that dang I must really be bad for them to just hand me a calculator.

My problem stems from numbers pretty much acting like sand in someones hand. If you want to hold it you got to have a tight grip but as soon as you loosen your grip the sand starts pouring out. Except in my case the sand is numbers and the hand is my mind. The bigger the number the harder it is for me to hold onto it.

All the stuff that I wanted to do after I got out of school involved a high amount of math. Can't really rely on a calculator on a job site.

Thats it in a nutshell.

Yes, a swift, low profile canine may be an asset, but rac***** and coyotes have to be dealt with, as well.

Hey that works for me.

What is the point of threatening to slander someone with criminal activity?

Straight up. It was a shock tactic.

Honestly I just felt that there was no way to get to stop calling me a socialist. Which at the time I made the post...it got under my skin for some odd reason. And I acted out.

I am truthfully sorry I did that. And I mean that honestly. It was a lowly thing to do.

"YOu don't have a leg to stand on and YOU KNOW IT."

I am not denying anything.

But you have to take responsibility. You kept throwing gas on the flames by making some of the comments you made.

Also need I remind you that I was you who took a personal failing of mine and threw it in my face?

Shortbus ring a bell? And that was before I made my hollow threat.

You speaking about dogs earlier. Surely you must know that poking a dog with a stick enough times my just get you bit.

A person is no different.

Add in my own feelings of worthlessness because of that failing....well those two things never go together very well.

I mean what is the point in bringing up who I am and where I live?

Are you trying to have some true rightwing nut kill me?

An interesting thing happened. I google myself. Whew boy did I find a doosey.

Apparently one of my posts on here got mentioned on an extremely racist message board.

Now I'd like to avoid drawing real world attention from a group like that.

Which is what could happen if someone linked my online persona on here to my real world one.

There are some truthfully crazy people out there.

But playing nice has never stopped you guys before.

Anyway, I'll not be back here until the hatefulness ends.

As far as the information about myself that is out there. What right do you have to put that information out there?

If I haven't myself mentioned it on here then that should tell you that hey maybe I should respect that guys privacy.

I think thats pretty reasonable.

You know I might have hinted that I would possibly do something. But I never did. Did I?

I simply calmed down and let it go.

You on the other hand. Also Ithink. Have crossed a line.

If it was your information that I had. It would be safe with me.

I don't try to shut people up. I'd rather slog it out in a debate. No matter how contentious.

"Needless to say when I found the den,...".

That's only a threat to a fox.

I am not the one needing to drop the drama.

You Stillhere/Tiredofit of your own volition repeatedly state that me and other posters are socialists. You are also not on here to debate but to stir stuff up. You whole point is not the discussion of issues but to infuriate others.

I will readily admit that I lost my cool when I did what you mentioned. But I never had any intention of doing it. I only mentioned to see what it would take to get you to stop falsely identifying me as part of a political movement that I have nothing to do with.

I could have asked you to stop but that would only embolden you to do it more.

Like I said. Your goals on here are to crank people up. And it worked on me that one time.

But I think it rather sad that I had to pull that card out to try and get you to quit rather than ask you in a civilized manner. Which I know would not have worked.

I hope everyone understands the gravity of what they are doing.

I would also like to point out the legal problems in messing with someone's anonymity.

Someone could get my information and cause me a world of hurt.

This site has our IP addresses which can ultimately be traced back to our internet service providers and then to us.

Not saying that it will happen but if it did come to pass that I found myself the target of identity theft etc. Who's to say that the information you found about me wasn't passed onto someone by you who used it to steal said identity etc?

That would be a problem for the authorities to figure out wouldn't it?

As far as a motive if any that you guys would have for doing that? Well you guys do dislike me a lot...enough to put the screws to me in that kind of manner? Well I don't know that you wouldn't do it do I? I mean you are already searching for my personal information and posting said information or at the very least hinting at where it can be found.

For one thing I never resided in my "home town".

I lived not too far from there though. And you know sometimes personal information doesn't get updated .

Also I no longer live down there anyways. But my parents do.

If something were to happen to them...take a wild guess where I'd point the finger at?

Furthermore I haven't yet emailed the web administrator about this sudden interest in my personal information.

So I am asking nicely for it to stop. One chance is all I am giving. Which I don't expect you to do.

Because lets not mince words here. It is fully an attempt to get me to shut up.

Not going to work.

Don't like my opinions? Fine! No one is forcing you to read them. No one is forcing you to respond to them.
