    You All Need More Ethics Training!

    Bad members! You just had to open a board clearly marked "Secret Moderator Subforum" . You should all be so ashamed that you immediately sign yourselves up for APA sponsored ethics training.

    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Let's not be didactic in this profession, because that is a path to disillusion and irrelevancy.

    Off-topic:
    That "boo-urns" reminded me of college! One of my buddies was always saying that.

    "Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."

    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    Eat it!

    To Cyburbia's not-so-mod mods: You all are frickin' hilarious!

    Just so you wouldn't think I had any hurt feelings, I'm offering a present to you all. You know, in the spirit of peace and mutual respect. Plus, you deserve it...

    Since I can't post any attachments (ahem!), you'll have to link to it here:

    Enjoy!

    Tresmo, log out and view the page again. Things might appear clearer.

    And here I thought that cyburbia would have taken on the Uber-tree-hugging eco green environmentalist side for April fools day.

    Or worse yet, say that the website is being sold to WAL-MART

    Knowing Dan, he would not let a ‘secret mod forum board’ just pop up.

    I started a small business this week. The business plan:
    1. Post inline images for non-Plus Cyburbians.
    2. ????
    3. PROFIT.
    PM me if you are interested.

    Mods, go suck your ethics.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    The blog Stuff White People Like had a 4/1 post that they were being acquired by Target.

    I'd call this off-topic, but I don't know how and am currently too lazy to figure it out.

    Stuff White People Like needs a post about how white people like that blog.
