How could I possibly vote without knowing if the homeless guy pronounces it correctly?

This is ridiculous even by grundle standards. Let's hope Wikipedia lifts his ban soon.

I saw the flag story this morning on CNN.

The poll and OP is lame and ridiculous, but I dig that homeless guy picking up and properly folding the flag. Cool stuff.

I've been making lots of edits under lots of different handles at wikipedia.

It's illegal according to wikipedia rules, but I think "victimless crimes" should be legal.

Thank God for that, even if you try as hard as you can to post as much annoying crap as you can here.

Edited after watching the homeless man video: I didn't know Woody Harrelson was so down on his luck. Possibly researching a movie role?

So is it that you think the rules don't apply to you? That wikipedia shouldn't be allowed to decide who can and who cannot edit its pages? You just don't believe in accountability?

He must be trying to convert his indefinite ban into a lifetime ban-- especially since editors at wikipedia have access to links to dvdtalk threads where he admits to editing under multiple names after his ban. Bizarre.

That's a myth. Although Wikipedia editors appreciate a good movie now and then, they can't read.

It's not a crime at all. It's a rule of a private company which has a right to make and enforce those rules.

What would you say, on average, is the dollar amount of what you pilfer from your local Wal-Mart lost and found before your wife donates the rest to Goodwill?

In that case, can I recommend drugs to you. I think crack or meth would do you well. If you're afraid of being arrested, maybe some airplane glue.

I think this thread has as much 'validity' and merit as a number of threads on this forum have.

I finally open up this forum thinking, I have been ignoring the political news lately, I'll get some insight from some everyday political debate.... and I open this thread first. :'(

I don't think it's left to the moderators to determine what a stupid thread is.
I damn sure hope not.
