Folks, The polls at the top, if you read it, has a vast majority against locking the Forum. It should be obvious that there is no need to lock anyone out who has manners.
Above, someone said that her assertive style sometimes grates on the guys on the Forum. So what? Who cares? Things grate on me all the time here and I just let it go. If guys can't handle an assertive woman, particularly an armed one, they need to join the 21st century.
WHAT I HAVE LEARNED SO FAR, MOSTLY THE HARD WAY
• Do only safe sex. Never have sex with someone crazier than you are.
• Don't marry or move in together before you're both at least 25.
• Don't have children until you're married five years or at least age 30.
• Put 10% of your salary into savings every month no matter how broke you are.
• Don't ever screw around with the IRS.
• Keep a handgun on your bedside table.
• Don't smart-mouth judges, or cops who stop you on the road.
