Pretty good actually, tasteful for the most part and sportsmanlike as usually becomes this forum. Incidentally, does anyone know who won and what his/her plans are for the new term?
OP, you have trolled thread after thread sniffing about the mean name-calling and hatred coming from Dems. You know damn well why this country voted for Obama, but just to reiterate:
- He saved the auto industry
- He pulled America of a new Great Depression
- He made life easier for Main Street than Wall Street
- He killed Osama bin Laden and avenged 9/11
- He is pulling us out of two expensive, costly foolish wars
- He is revolutionizing health care to help real people in the real world
- He stood for marriage equality and human rights
And that's just a few things.
This country voted by an overwhelming majority for a man with a real plan and real accomplishments. This is the future of our multicultural electorate. This is the future of America. And you are being left behind by your own choice. That can change any time you like.
Until then, you're F&Fed.
OP It is easier for many of the posters here to hate Romney than support Obama, because they never liked Obama in the first place. These are Hillary's angriest supporters from 2008 and they have never forgiven Obama for taking her nomination.
And R1, you have stalked me from thread to thread. Good! Do you ff everyone with whom you disagree? You were positively Jeffersonian up until then, but it always drools out, doesn't it?
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
