    My sister told me about this place.

    So I thought I'd join and get to know some new people.

    Your stepsister Emma?

    As a good Jewish girl, you should know that Cyburbia is shomer Shabbat. We shut down the site tonight at 8:39 PM (sunset in Buffalo), and turn it on tomorrow at 8:38 PM. We have to shut the site down to keep our Kosher certification. Shabbat shalom!

    I think we can coin a new phrase. Do you ban her because it may be a sockpuppet or not? It's called... *drumroll*

    Jewish_Becca, my sincerest apologies if no one seems to believe you are who say, and are merely some sort of - what is the term Americans use - ah yes, sock puppet. In any event, for my part at least I believe you wholeheartedly.
    Canada is a place of infinite promise. We like the people, and if one ever had to emigrate, this would be the destination, not the U.S.A. The hills, lakes and forests make it a place of peace and repose of the mind, such as one never finds in the U.S.A.

    I think we have Dan's permission to keep it up until (s)he crosses the line. I wasn't trying to be a spoilsport.

    I swear this is the most bizarre 48 hours I have witnessed on Cyburbia. It is beginning to feel like April 1 on repeat.

    When was it that Emma crossed the line? Don't say trolling because radical political views isn't trolling.

    She was only following the thread topic and being brutally honest in her opinion. It's not her fault people are the way they are. Looks to me like the messenger just got shoot!
