Boy Scouts councils to national HQ: Don't make hasty decision on gays
A coalition of Boy Scouts councils representing some 540,000 youth asked the national organization on Monday to hold off on determining whether to end the controversial policy banning gay Scouts and leaders, saying it was concerned about the executives’ fast pace on a decision that can’t be “undone.”

Hasty? Hasty?! Get real. The Boy Scouts stance on the issue of equality for gays is the exact opposite of 'hasty.'
What the hell is the goddamn delay?
I'm 46 years-old. I was a Cub Scout and a Boy Scout. To this day these are the gayest group activities I have ever participated in. At night on camping trips, there was always some boy getting naked and playing with himself. In the showers, the older Eagle Scouts were always thrusting their cocks in our faces.
I don't know what this organisation is banging on about but they've got their work cut out for them eradicating boy on boy sex. Boy Scouts is the gayest thing ever.

Are you sure you're not thinking of a porn movie?
I thought the different age levels of cub scout, boy scout, and eagle scout would not be camping at the same time. And certainly not in the showers at the same time. But I can't say that R3 is lying because I was never in such an organization. My father took my brothers and me, along with some of our friends, on camping/fishing trips, and it was always very primitive with no showers at all. We would go swimming naked to bathe, but it was always just our little group. My parents were always suspicious of adults who wanted to spend time with the children of other people.
"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...
