Suddenly every frau on christianmingle.com would lose all of their online matches.
Um, OP, should idiots who don't know how to make a plural without an apostrophe be allowed to post new threads?
We think not.
Mmmmmmm -- just snail mail.
This thread stinks...of Mama's mussy.
prisoner's what? cats?
Absolutely not. Prisoners would have 24 hours a day to think up internet scams. They would contact their victims. They would run their drug enterprises from prison. A complete parade of horribles.
Genius @R2, the OP used an apostrophe but just in the wrong place. (OP, it should've gone after the "s" and not before)
Might want to brush up on your grammar cunt skills. Shoo yourself, cunt.
There is no cause for an apostrophe in the op.
There's hilariously pointless bitchy, and then there's just smelly and cunty. r2, I'm afraid you fall into the latter category.
If you're going to be a bitch, great--but you've got to be funny about it too or you're just nasty.
No they should not. And I also propose elimination of apostrophes altogether as the next big internet meme.
They probably shouldn't have unfiltered access, but I think they should have it - keeps them occupied and out of conflict with other inmates.
I never understand people who give a shit if prisoners have creature comforts like internet, TV, etc. Give them gourmet food for all I care. They're in fucking prison - they're controlled by the State. They have to do as they're told when they're. TV and internet isn't going to make that situation luxurious. Loss of liberty seems like enough to me, in most instances.
Prisoners do have access. Airlines and other customer service lines have been in-sourced to prisons. Cheaper than India!
The U.S. prison system is based on a punitive effort. Some programs in Nordic countries look at it from a more behavioral perspective and their outcomes are BETTER than ours.
OP, many prisons allow prisoners to have TVs in their cells. Is that really worse than allowing Internet access? I would assume that said access is severely limited, much like it is at public libraries, with many sites blocked off. They might even be limited to using e-mail and/or research tools for filing appeals in their convictions.
What is going through the heads of these women who deliberately seek out imprisoned criminal pen pals? Is it the bad boy attraction or some kind of misguided notion that their "special love" can transform a man for the better?

God, you're a fucking idiot. Prison is supposed to be a form of punishment, and being confined to a luxury hotel with internet, tv, gourmet food, massages (I'm sure you think criminals deserve those, too) and conjugal visits (deprive them of sex?! Oh, what cruelty!) doesn't seem like a bad life at all. Hell, a lot of people would LOVE to be in prison if it were that cushy and comfortable.
As for them having internet access...well, criminals can do all kinds of illegal things with internet access. They should not be allowed to have it; it just gives them opportunity to commit more crimes.
Elmer Wayne Henley was the teenage accomplice of Dean Corll, the Texas homosexual serial killer with a taste for young boys. Henley would lure teenagers as young as 13 (some of them were his childhood friends) to Corll's lair with promises of a good time; there they would be handcuffed spread-eageled to a plywood board, where they would be raped and tortured before being murdered. Henley helped dispose of the bodies. There were at least 27 victims, probably more. Somehow Wayne Henley got himself a page on Facebook! It's speculated that one of his groupies (yes, this serial killer has groupies) managed to put up the Facebook page for him. Due to the understandable outcry, it was taken down. A serial killer communicating and making "friends" on Facebook...that is SICK.
Just books. Lots of books.

Good lord, you are even dumber than the OP. You thought this shit through, and still came up with a dead-wrong answer.
"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...
