    For some reason I'm getting a picture of someone cruising around in a beat '98 Crown Vic with a dozen antennas sticking out in all directions following cops around just in case they might need some help...

    Glad you have your explanation...

    Well, I suppose if the image helps you get through the day, like your conspiracy theory where you, an innocent member, was just arbitrarily and unjustly punished by the mods, you're welcome to it. Enjoy!

    Maybe I'll hold off on my "save the pro-life atheist democrat transgendered whales from the political slaves of the military-industrial complex" thread..............

    Pretty sad that we're just jumping to conclusions that there are some "rats" here telling on people. Might not be a rat, could be a stool pigeon. You have to keep an open mind.

    Nailed it. They don't seem to grow tired of it either.

    This is TGP. Definitely Rats. Probably stacked in series.

    "Snowflake" is a political term, used as an insult, and it's all over the Pub. Why this is tolerated is something to be considered.

    It really does depend on what team you are playing for, in my experience.

    Everybody seems to use it pretty equally. Or mis-use it, I should say.
    If it is directed at a fellow Pub member, it’s a personal insult (/rules). If it is directed at third parties, it’s merely a disdainful label.
    While I don’t favor the term myself, I personally wouldn’t want to see speech curtailed to that extent. See it, move on. Every little thing doesn’t have to be retaliated against.

    Thank you. "Fake news" is the same, loaded with political content and used as an insult, and tolerated in the pub.

    It is a personal insult loaded with political content, which should make it a double rule breaker.
