1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Plus one.
    And don't people talk about another member's sister/mother all the time?
    :brick:

    What he said may have been out of line....but SO MANY others do the same.....
    I guess if it is in DT vs general chat, it gets a pass.....

    I think the issue is making the joke and then doubling down when you realize you've offended someone.

    This is correct. The first comment wasn't enough to earn a TO on its own. However, he was explicitly told to back off, and he continued to push. The math is simple, really: Families are off limits, and, even when there's a grey area, failing to heed a direct instruction from a mod (and then insulting that mod) pretty much guarantees things aren't going to break your way.

    Also, yes, ter, the rules are different in DT. There are still standards, but they're not nearly as rigid as they are elsewhere. That different standard plays no small part in the fact that I very rarely mention my personal life down there. Also, note that I have intervened in DT when the line is crossed. Doing so is how I became the wiener mod.

    Anyhow, Fang is welcome to return after his well-deserved time off, and I'm sure his commentary on the matter will include the well-spoken, enlightened insight we've all come to expect from him. Until then, I say we try to get back on track with the thread.

    Some guy nearly ran me off the road yesterday. Boy, did that p me o!

    When we moved my wife's contribution was, two weeks prior to move date, take an extra large box and put it in the middle of our small kitchen. Proceed to fill the entire box with miscellaneous and loose kitchen items.

    The box was far too heavy to move and sat in the way of using the kitchen for two weeks. My wife is now in charge of packing books when we move.

    Here is my experience of women and moving: they fret a lot about the process, but do very little actual work. But then in retrospect, they think they've done a lot of work because they recall the mental strain of fretting. Betimes they even insist that they did the lion's share of the work, to where others are deficient in expressing their appreciation.

    I helped a fried move some years ago. His wife sat in her bedroom combing her daughter's hair the entire time(at the old and new apartment.)
    She then asked....."When will you guys be finished?" She didn't even want her husband to buy us some brews when we stopped for lunch. Me and another friend chipped in for a few 6 packs.

    She is known as a bitch!

    This is a well earned moniker, based on the sample of data you provide. My wife, as an example, gets stressed, and helps little, but is appreciative of those that help, and understands that gratitude should be expressed in the form of cold beverages, and some kind of food.

    Oddly, it seems that, in my wife's social circle no one understands the basic social contract of helping a friend move = pizza & beer, plus an implicit promise of help moving in the future, if feasible. She is only 23, so this concept should still apply, and she does, and has, helped her friends move. This is annoying, as I did basically all of the moving, and lifting, myself, the three times she has moved since I have been here.

    Also oddly, her parents paid to move all of her furniture, and belongings (ALL) from the family home, to the apartment she rented when she was attending graduate school. Is this weird to anyone else? I bought some stuff at Ikea, and Sears, to do the job while I lived there, then sold it all before I left.

    When I moved to my current place, I had about 5-6 friends help.
    -I took them to breakfast before we lifted a box.
    -I had a bunch of beers in my old and new apartment(more in the new one) so that we could partake during the move.
    -After everything was moved over to my new casa, I took them all to dinner at this Italian place not far from where I am now(I knew the place as I only moved about 3 blocks.)

    Simple things like that are key IMO...

    ^ yep.

    A couple years ago I helped my sister move. She had not really packed and was not really helping with the move, nor had she provided the obligatory refreshments, so I just started taking things that I wanted. After I had liberated a couple pounds of bacon and some jars of my mother's jam from the freezer as well as a bottle of lambic beer, I called it good.

    I had the luxury of moving from the brooklyn apartment to CT house when my wife was working overseas for two weeks. I hired movers to do everything and invited my friend down so we could just hang out, chill, and do a road trip with the time I saved using movers. It was glorious!

    I'm pissed off because a dear friend's mother just died and she was totally quiet about it. apparently she took almost 5 months off from work to take care of her ailing mother and didn't ask/accept any help from friends or family (financially) and now everyone/friends are scrambling to help out. The worst part is there has been some finger pointing to why friends didn't help out sooner :facepalm: and its getting ugly publicly on Facebook.

    So where do mom jokes lie in relation to no family insults? Is it a spectrum or is it binary? Also mom jokes are only in dumb threads or also acceptable elsewhere?

    If it weren't for me my girlfriend never would have moved out of her place in time. I had to go in and start throwing things in the garbage. She would just sit around going through old pictures and talking about them out loud. I was like :fu: we gotta get this fucking done!!!
