Great interview over on owldolatrous.com:
Captain Stephen Hill is the gay soldier deployed to Iraq who was booed on national TV at one of last year’s Republican Presidential Primary debates.
He’d been invited to ask a question for the debates on the subject of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” the policy which for nearly twenty years had kept soldiers quiet about their sexual orientations and had only recently been repealed.
This is what happened:

And nothing goes better with an online interview than a delicious bowl of Orville Redenbacher's® Ready-To-Eat Popcorn! It's the same great popcorn you've loved for years, ready to eat whenever you are. And with four delicious flavors, there's something for everyone. Grab a bag from the snack section of your favorite grocery store. Tell 'em Orville sent you!
R1, it's a good article, and the topic is appropriate for this forum, adn I thought it would be interesting to discuss here, and also thought more people would be interested in seeing it.
Unlike, you know, your contribution to this thread.
Op, thanks for the video.
I like OR popcorn but r1 remains a diversionary asshole.
He does the corn an injustice.
Thank you Stephen Hill for your service.
Each of my posts to this thread bumps this advertisement for your blog to the top of page 1, OP. You should be paying me commission.
You can figure out my rate in a jiffy with one of the fine pocket calculators by Texas Instruments®. Computations are a snap with this handy gadget that goes where you go. Available at fine department stores or at Amazon.
It's not my blog, you idiot.
Stop being such a cynical tool.
I post a lot of things I find interesting here, that I think others will find interesting too.
In the spirit of full disclosure, OP, I am not Orville Redenbacher. Like you, I promote his products here at out of my enthusiasm for their quality. Why are you mad at me for doing exactly what you're doing?
Because you're doing it in my thread and being a dick about it. Go start your own thread. And get over yourself... you're laughably wrong, wrong-headed, and your ire is misdirected.
So... you want to dictate how the conversation goes on "your" thread, and who participates, and what they say. With your control issues, it's a good thing you have a blog. Maybe you should move this conversation to your blog, so you could delete all the posts that don't meet with your approval.
Stop being such a fucking troll, R1.
I'm not dictating anything. I don't have a blog. You're as misinformed as you are annoying.
Jesus, what is [italic]wrong[/italic] with you? Why don't you grow up and stop being a dick.
Why are you shitting all over this thread? Seriously? I'll bet you didn't even read the link.
[quote]I'm not dictating anything.
All you've done on "your" thread, besides promote your blog, is tell me to stop posting on it. Bossy, bossy, bossy.
Are people more accepting at the other message boards on which you flog your blog? If so, maybe your energy would be better spent at one of those.
And while we're sharing things we don't like about each other, it really bugs me when you don't sign your posts. I know it seems silly, since we're the only two people on this thread, but it's the proper thing to do when you post more than once in a thread. Plus, it would help to stake your claim on "your" thread.
I love R1
That's because r11 is mentally ill, like r1.
Another potentially itneresting thread ruined by a pathetic troll.
Fuck you, R1. You're an idiot, you're wrong, and you're a pathetic attention whore.
R1/R10, for the last time, it's not my blog you idiot.
R1: an obvious obsessive Benderson fanbot.
Get a fucking life, moron.
[italic]I'm[/italic] the attention whore? You're not only writing a blog, but also going around trying to trick people into visiting it, and [italic]I'm[/italic] the attention whore? Oh, yeah, I can't wait for all the attention "your" thread is going to bring to me, an anonymous DL poster. It's Anonymous' turn to bask in the white-hot spotlight of fame!
I was going to keep this to myself, but since you've been so mean to me, I have to point out that your spelling and punctuation is atrocious. I hope you have someone look over your blog entries before you post them.
If you were right, even then you'd still be a dick. But your'e wrong. You're waging some sort of holy war against something that doesn't even exist. Your'e an idiot and an asshole making this thread all about you, and your amazing (and non-existant) ability to divine the motivations behind posts and threads. Jesus, you're pathetic. Just stop while you're behind.
"Holy war?" You're not overburdened with modesty, are you?
If all my posts are about your blog, and all your posts are about me, how am I making this thread about me? Is that what you think "attention whore" means? That would actually make me more of an "attention pimp."
And it's "non-exist[bold]e[/bold]nt."
Welcome to the R1-Hijacked thread that used to be about a gay military officer.
It is now about a delusional queen and her popcorn fetish.
Whatever, R1/R18... You still hijacked a thread for no good reason, and you're still a smug little douchebag.
Luv the gay soldier.
I'm a gay military officer and I know for a fact that Stephen Hill is a fucking opportunist. He's definitely not someone to hold up as a hero, but I can see how he serves a purpose for gay marriage advocates.
Why do people post their blogs?
This isn't Pinterest.
