    Just an idea suggestion to the mods. A lot of lurkers and some new participants here. Was just wondering if a contributor, or someone not politically biased can write up a quick bio of the main posters in here. Stuff like they're conservative, or liberal, if they support trump, nor not, what their ideas are, ect, then sticky it locked. That way people can get a gist of whose who and where they stand? Would that be fair and helpful to people in here?

    Cannot imagine a worse idea for this forum. Good lord.

    You’re free to add your bio to your sig. Do you need instructions?

    Not everyone is going to look at your signature, but if they can see a list of the main posters and see what their history and behavior has been, that would be helpful.

    Wouldn't the main posters have to consent to such a thing?

    Why would they?

    Of course, a simple pm and some general questions, followed by post history.

    Sounds likes you’re just passing the buck. Maybe you should offer to pay the mods for said work.

    That doesn't answer my questions. Such a thing should or would require consent from said main posters. Why would they do such a thing? What is gotten out of it for them? I don't imagine the main posters imagine themselves as part of a roster of professional wrestlers that need bios flashed across the page for the edification of casual posters.

    "Behavior"? o_O

    You’re suggesting something to the mods. There is already an avenue to post your feelings captured in a short blurb people will ignore anyway. Did I missi anything?

    To give the lurkers and the newbies here a chance to see and what to expect from the regular participants they're going to interact with.

    They can do that the same way you, I, and any others did.

    Post.

    Not that hard. I can't imagine anyone needs hand holding. This is one of more tamer political forums you could run across on the internet.

    How about a good old-fashioned forum roast? We all pretend to be other users and have to guess which one we're mocking imitating. That's bound to be a friendly, cordial affair. :)

    I think so. :confused:

    Either that, or he wants to more easily ID who falls on what side of the political spectrum for some people. I can't imagine that will go well.

    Wut? Let them figure it out for themselves, it's part of the regular hazing routine, isn't it?

    Or were y'all just pickin' on me when I first showed up in here to get schooled by a bunch of y'all y'all...?!

    Is this some kind of millennial thing? I don’t understand.

    Me first!

    Who is this:

    Who said I voted for Trump? I don't even like the guy. I'm just going to defend every single policy, repeat every talking point verbatum because I make up my own mind about these things. I absolutely do not read Breitbart either. I accidentally stumbled across that site while looking up reasons Alex Jones was framed.

    Give up?

    Answer: Every online "Independent voter" you've come across over the last two years.

    Times like these I miss the midget. We’d be beating him with virtual rubber hoses right now.

    Also, I’m retiring my use of “y’all”. Back to good old “youse”.

    I know, I would have scooped him up in a heartbeat. He was in some article about how to make toys for shelter cats. I think I identified with how bewildered he looked. That is often enough how I feel after popping into PRSI on the average day, so it's about time I posted him up as a meme. :D
