    Nippy got a reaction from Funn3r in Just ordered a Paperwhite - have I done a bad thing?   
    When it comes to moving house, it would be a lot easier to cart a Kindle and an SD card than 1000 books. Things than annoy me about my Kobo e-reader:
    1) speed of page turning. Sometimes it seems really laggy
    2) artefacts that don't always disappear with a screen refresh
    3) accidentally touching the screen whilst holding it with one hand, resulting in some unwanted action, like jumping to another part of the book, or closing it entirely.
    4) the wrong thing happening when deliberately pressing the screen
    in short, it's a dissatisifying experience compared to using a real book.

    This is seems a reasonable adult approach to me: people do get up to worse things when they think no one can see them. The difficulty I have is that it's not my definition of too far that I need worry about, but that of SJW/plod/CPS.
    A man was prosecuted for a tweet venting his frustration at Robin Hood airport being closed because of snow. Count Dankula amassed large legal fees in defending himself in court for having an anti-semitic dog. Police called on Harry Miller for tweeting "I was assigned Mammal at Birth, but my orientation is Fish. Don’t mis species me” and a lengthy court battle ensued. If we only say things that we would be happy to say at work, then I'd have to have a rainbow signature and acquiesce to statements that gender is a social construct and that there is a gender paygap caused by sexism.

    To see the authoritarian left's no forgiveness, 'we're good; you're evil' mentality at work, this was posted in the Trump-Biden thread. It seems a genuine call by one of our favourite democrat representatives. Do we think we won't be tracked down when they turn their attention on us?

    Conniption married into it, didn't she? If everyone on here got breeding, we'd have the next generation of Dosbodders coming up.

    It already is an echo chamber in my opinion because the type of poster is self-selecting. We have very few high tax, Marxist, trans-rights, pro benefits, gender reassigned, BBC loving bleeding heart open borders globalists. We have a few people with foreign spouses, and a few bi/gay, and a few on benefits out of necessity. The biggest disagreements seem to be about Mrs T, and whether Jewish people are controlling the world from moon base Alpha. Why it works is that almost everyone on here is smart, and can provide reasoned argument or data. There is enough variation to make it interesting, but enough homogeneity to prevent falling out and fighting (mostly). It's a microcosm of how we'd like the country to be.

    And TR thread.
    David Craig who runs the snoutsinthetrough.com blog has had plod call at his door because people have been offended by him, and he has even recently deleted one of his own blog entries on 'advice'. Now, you could wonder why someone would be reading his blog when they disagreed with the type of content it contains, but it happened, and people are going around looking to be offended, to expose the wrong think, and to enjoy a power trip. If it hasn't happened here, it will soon. The police are looking to meet targets, and the government is keen to make right leaning people look like baddies "RWE is the fastest growing form of extremism in the UK"----probably means it's doubled from 1 to 2 examples in a year.

    You would be guilty by association. Imagine the headline "Mr Leonard, whose real name is Stacey Gavin Lenin, was a member of a far right extremist forum which called for, amongst other things, ..."

    Icke had his twitter taken down a couple of days ago; yet we are told he is nuts. So we've now got the reintroduction of digital asylums and the repeal of care in the community.

    The above sort of thing, along with banking services being withdrawn is an extra legal form of punishment that is being used on those guilty of wrongthink and it requires no police or court involvement. We've also seen in the Companies whose virtue signalling is of the scale thread tweets from telecoms providers saying "with those views, we don't want you as a customer". The worry is not necessarily about now, it's about the state of the country in five years time when this sort of thing has become embedded as normal, and it is impossible to delete what you've said from the Internet.  BTW, despite browser and IP hygiene, I reckon most posters here have supplied enough tidbits of information to doxx themselves to a sufficiently motivated team of SJW researchers. Statement similar to: I had a teacher called xxxx, no joke; a lad in my class went on to win xxxx award; I've just bought one of these ..... from ....; my lad's school has just said that the school trip to xxx is cancelled; I used to work at xxxx; I'll be forty this year; I went to xxx concert this summer.

    But thread drift means the topic starts out OK for the family lounge. Indeed, you never know when a thread on cakes is going to veer off into some race/sex/religion/court case/corruption or bad politician discussion.

    Lurkers decloaking to say "don't take the forum private" is sort of proving the point that being open to read isn't resulting in more contributions. Having to log in in order to read and the need to post occasionally to avoid suspension would increase contributions far faster that waiting for google to send someone our way.

    Like a few others flushed out here, I'm a (silver) stacker and long time lurker.
    Came here from ToS for the brilliant DurhamBorn thread. Would love to be able to contribute there but, while I find the macro economics stuff fascinating, I still have no clue how they do it nor any industry knowledge to add much value. Originally stumbled there from a random google - was looking for a second opinion on the excellent (but gloomy) predictions on the economy from the SurplusEnergyEconomics blog. 
    Didn't venture much beyond the DB's Deflation thread until lockdown, then found out I'm not alone being suspicious of the MSM disinformation on the scamdemic or the ongoing pantomime distraction that is the US elections. Now I know why you all call it the So-Called BBC (once you see it, you can't unsee it).
    Before XYY starts, i really am a poof. Did try searching for the Italian male bottoms in lycra thread mentioned recently by TMT, but I'm beginning to think it was just a wind up...
    As per previous lurkers in this thread, not sure it's really my place to vote, but it would be a shame if others couldn't find hidden gems like e.g. the Deflation thread to protect their life savings from the incoming govt theft by inflation.
