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,

    grounding == gronder ( en français ) ?
    Non. C'est priver de sortie.

    for example: grounding =/= grinding

    That is what I mean. Perhaps Fritzl thinks we are suggesting to make hamburger meat out of VG's daughter. Or perhaps to attach electrical wires to her. Or to put her in the cold cold ground.

    Fritzl, "grounding" is a common punishment used by parents to take away a child's privilege of being able to go ouside and play.

    That is disgusting. Personally, I'm offended!

    I'm more wont to say "I'll chop off your toes and give them away." Seriously. And the kids love it, delightfully twisted creatures that they are.

    I've always been fond of this one, not originally mine:

    "If you don't stop ____, I'll chop off your legs, sharpen the stumps, and drive you into the ground with a mallet."

    That's a great one.

    Makes me want to have kids just to be able to use it.

    I think it would work from about age four onwards...

    Perhaps we have a vocabulary comprehension problem here.

    Fritzl, what is your understanding of "grounding"?


    After all, it's not important anymore what my understanding of grounding is.

    The statements here and there are quite inappropriate.

    You are making no sense. Please do that in another thread, not this one. Thanks.

    A practice that could aptly be termed "grounding".

    This question is under review by the Confidential Committee on Advanced Trolling. Its findings will be published shortly.

    Sorry for the short downtime, a glitch in the Matrix had to be fixed. Thanks for pointing out the thread.

    I just added Google search capability to the site. Check the usual Search link at the top for the form. This allows you to use better logic operators to get better search results, and also cuts the load on the server a little by using Google's computers instead.
