I don't know, if you act up we might have to defend the fair lady.
I got the rest of my costume today. I just tried all of it on together. I think it looks good, for something not homemade. Anyway, I gotta go do my homework now. I may be on the boards later tonight though.
Indeed we will.
Tony and I will tie you to one of those "its gonna rain" benches and throw you into the harbor
It's gonna rain!
NO NO NO Y Y Y

Too bad you don't know what we are talking about, n00b.

Ok, let's stop this flame war right now.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
Besides, I'll just call you a CENSORED in person, and not get banned.
We aren't harrasing you. just calm down dude
everyone is "mistreated" when they first get here. I was by Bib when he was active here and Tony was by me. So relax. If you can't deal with a little good natured humor, go away.
"This bickering is pointless..."
The Boston Rebels charter says that people are n00bs when 1.)they have completed TF.N's registration and posted on the boards; and 2.)have not yet attended a meet. This seems to be the case.
When a person attends a meet, they are a full memeber, and get all rights and privleges there-in, including not being called a n00b. I believe this will change on Friday, right Arthur?
So quit getting your knickers in a twist, and wait two days, and then you'll be fine.
well try reading this
"In light of recent decisions of the Michigan and U.S. Supreme Courts, staff has undertaken a thorough review of the Civil Service rules and regulations governing discrimination and sexual harassment. Staff recommends that the Civil Service rules and regulations governing discrimination and sexual harassment be amended. The proposed amendments to the rules are attached.
The principal proposed amendments to the rules are highlighted and discussed below:
1. Amendments to Rule 1-7* (Prohibited Discrimination). Staff recommends amending the text of the Rule 1-7 to follow the statutory language used in the Michigan Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act (ELCR Act) and the Michigan Persons with Disabilities Civil Rights Act (PWDCR Act).
DISCUSSION: The Commission has generally interpreted Rule 1-7 to be similar (if not identical) in coverage and interpretation to the ELCR Act and the PWDCR Act. The recommended amendments strengthen this relationship by modeling the text of the rule on the ELCR Act and PWDCR Act.
This may be particularly useful under the Michigan Supreme Court?s decision in Nummer v Department of Treasury. In Nummer, the Court gave preclusive effect to a Civil Service grievance determination (under Rule 1-7) when the Plaintiff later tried to relitigate the same claim in the circuit court under the ELCR Act. If an employee files a discrimination or harassment grievance under the rules, it will be useful for the parties, the hearing officer, and the courts to have the Civil Service rules congruent with the ELCR Act and the PWDCR Act.
2. Prohibited Bases of Discrimination. Staff recommends conforming the various possible prohibited bases of discrimination in Rule 1-7 and Rule 1-8 to those in the ELCR Act and the PWDCR Act.
A. The draft retains the following eight prohibited bases now in the rules:
4. "National Origin"
8. "Partisan considerations" [This, of course, has its origin in Article 11, Â§5, of the Michigan Constitution and does not have a corollary in the ELCR Act or the PWDCR Act.]
B. The draft adds the following three additional prohibited bases from the ELCR Act:
3. "Marital Status"
C. The draft deletes the following one prohibited base from the rules:
1. "Ancestry" [This is redundant because "ancestry" is included in "national origin."]
DISCUSSION: Staff recommends that, as part of modeling the text of the rules on the ELCR Act and the PWDCR Act, the rules adopt the same prohibited bases in the statutes. The only substantive change adds "height," "weight," and "marital status" to the rules. Since appointing authorities are already prohibited from discriminating on the basis of "height," "weight," and "marital status" under the ELCR Act, the addition of these three bases in the Civil Service rules does not create any additional burdens for state agencies.
3. New Disability Definitions. Staff recommends adding the following definitions:
A. "Disability" [new Rule 8-35]
B. "Unrelated to the individual?s ability" [new Rule 8-122]
DISCUSSION: Again, these proposed definitions are modeled on the statutory language in the PWDCR Act. The proposed definitions do not substantively alter the Commission?s current interpretations of the rules prohibiting disability discrimination.
4. New Rules Defining and Prohibiting "Discriminatory Harassment."
Staff recommends adding a new definition of "discriminatory harassment" [new Rule 8-36]. Staff also recommends adding a rule [new Rule 1-7.2] that (1) prohibits "discriminatory harassment," (2) requires employees to report "discriminatory harassment," and (3) requires agencies to investigate complaints of "discriminatory harassment."
DISCUSSION: The developing case law recognizes that improper workplace "harassment" can be more that just "sexual harassment." Staff recommends expanding the definition of "sexual harassment" to a more inclusive definition of "discriminatory harass
You didn't have to write out a amendment. haha
we understand your upset for some strange reason. But doing the stuff you are doing is annoying and I am losing simpathy for you.
If you read above your super long post, you'll see the way the Boston Rebels work. Don't like it? Then be a member of TF.N, but not the Rebels.
Based on your long post, are we discriminating on:
1. "Religion" -- NO
2. "Race" -- NO
3. "Color" -- NO
4. "National Origin" -- NO
5. "Age" -- NO
6. "Sex" -- NO
7. "Disability" -- NO
8. "Partisan considerations" -- NO
1. "Height" -- NO
2. "Weight" -- NO
3. "Marital Status" -- NO
As you can see, there are no bias that are used against you. Just calm down and wait 48 hours, and you won't be called that. It's just a hazing name, and you have to live with it.

And even if we were Arthur, I have over 30 private messages that you sent to me that are harrasing. Especially since I politely asked you not to send me anymore PM's. A fact that you claim to forget on a daily basis. Besides Arthur, can you really blame them? You come onto the boards and brag about your money and stuff that you have, when no one really cares. You do the same thing at school. If anyone is going to get banned from these boards, it will most likely be you.
Edit: And you just sent me another PM!!!
