Seriously folks...

Every thread in this forum is derailed and taken WAY off topic by our resident 'nutt. Let's have one without him.

Particularly invited:
Pamela
Dr. G
GA
Well... Just about everybody.

Here are the rules:
1 No Macnutt
2 Ignore Macnutt
3 Don't mention Macnutt
4 Post things that make Macnutt mad
5 Don't let him get you mad
6 No Trolls (that means Macnutt)
7 Statements must be TRUE
8 Truths must be backed up with facts
9 Facts must be backed up with links
10 Have fun

I'll start:

Bill Clinton was a great president... Discuss!

thewitt, an interesting, albeit contentious idea. The only thing is that I am not in favor of banning "you know who" from any thread. I would be a hypocrit if I felt this way, since he wanted me to stop posting on ehMac until I got a Mac of my own, and only backed down on this "request" when I demanded that he put it to a vote of all ehMacLanders.

Thus, I shall abide by all the rules except #1 and #4 and #6. If his freedom is restricted then everyone's freedom is restricted. As well, why taunt him and then not let him respond?

This is like a private club, where certain people are not welcomed. I have been barred from certain places because I was Jewish, so I am not in favor of setting up a private domain for only certain people.

Points #2,3, 5,7,8,9 and 10 are fine with me, since it restricts no one and is in keeping with the basic idea of freedom of speech.

Tempting, very tempting, but . . .

You really don't need a special thread to ignore Macnutt.

You can, as Nike says, just do it.

Good Gawd, does this stuff still happen?!? Very sorry to hear that good Doctor. You have, as always, enlightened me...

It certainly has in my lifetime, albeit not as frequently as years ago. I have seen people banned from things as paltry as a service club, a golf or curling club for various reasons to name but a few.

When I was a youngster growing up in western Canada after the second world war, there were many immigrants who came here from Europe seeking a better life. They "rode the rails" as a means of getting around the country and were labelled "DPs", which was short for "Displaced Persons". I saw far too many of them run off from public events, or groups or even churches.

It was sad, but as we lived right beside the railway tracks and just outside a major railway yard, many of them came to our door hungry, tired and cold. My mother always fed them and offered them blankets to curl up and rest in the large barn, out of the cold and wind.

Most of these people were "eastern Europeans" and the language barrier was a problem for them.

In short to answer your question, you bet this kind of thing still happens. Be very glad you live in a country where laws now prohibit open rejection of identifiable groups.

Cheers

At least if you're banned for being Jewish, there are certain factions in the world who will take up your cause.

How about being ostracized from woman's groups 'cuz you refuse to play dumb, and not being accepted at the men's table 'cuz you're not pretty and vapid or buxom enough or having your ideas pooh-poohed 'cuz your hairs a little gray but your name is Maggie instead of Albert - and then the final insult, you walk into a meeting an hour later and hear your idea being presented, but it's not you speaking!

Ah the world is yet a cruel place. It is hurtful to be ignored in any social situation where you feel you've contributed to the best of your ability.

Bah! Macnutt is harmless. Infuriating at times, yes. But I'd be lying if I didn't admit there's kind of an odd spectator-sport element of wading into a thread--pretty much any thread within Everything Else--and being entertained by Macnutt's cowpatties of wisdom that he dispenses like candy from a Pez container.

Realizing you're being tongue-in-cheek with this thread, are you sure you're not taking things a little too personally? I don't agree with his views, but I'm uncomfortable with the idea that anyone--even him--should be shunned from a discussion.

"My mother always fed them and offered them blankets to curl up and rest in the large barn, out of the cold and wind." Sinc, your mother taught you well the real meaning of "always caring, always sharing". I have a feeling that your mother and my mother would have gotten along quite well had they ever met. Paix, mon ami.

Margaret, I refuse to be a member of any group, be it formal or informal, that treats women in the manner you speak of in your previous post. I have never been "one of the boys", sharing "humor" that demeans women (or any other group). As my wife has said, "A woman has to work twice as hard just to show that she is capable of doing the basic job of a man in certain companies." This is why she left Shell Canada in Calgary to come to St.John's where we could make a life together, as partners who are, by and large, equal in opportunity.
