    When we moved to NJ in 1968, there was a lot of farmland. One large tract was soon sold, and a store went up, which then had a mall added on by 1970/71. I clearly remember asking "What's a mall?" Haha! That...

    It's evolution. Mall stores are going the way of the T. Rex (i.e.: evolving into turkeys). The ease, accessibility, and variety offered by internet shopping is doing to malls what plate tectonics did to...

    Those of us who have been here a while will remember the times when the belligerent loud mouths attacked this forum. Management was very good at attempting to allow free speech, but the bullying and...

    Muramasa replied to a thread Account deletion in Site Information
    I'm fine with that. My posts are not very identifiable and there are not that many of them. I would prefere to have them deleted as well, since they didn't span much discussion, but if they have to stay, so...

    It may depend on the town itself. Some of my family went to the mall today for something and I'm told that it was actually really busy. Of course, this mall always has been for as long as I've lived here....

    Thank you. He's now in the hospital, but they say he's just on the borderline of needing to be - so he's not doing TOO bad. My other cousin (his sister) has flown to where he is to help out. She's fully...

    Gab has vastly improved its performance in the last couple of months. Many of us have donated money so that Torba can buy more servers. I will always take glitchy infrastructure over outright authoritarianism.

    I'm sure people will attempt this and there may even be enough people working on it to make something moderately enduring. I have my doubts that they'll outperform the existing tech giants to the degree you're...

    The best way to deal with cancel culture is to build the entire infrastructure from scratch, with people who value free speech. New social media, new messaging apps, new companies and then let authoritarian...

    Ok. I was posting a thread about a movie review of Coming to 2 America where I was expressing my opinion on an internet forum. It was a very decent review. And next thing that happens it was locked and...

    Yeah, his stuff is always good. I'd say that I might even pick out one little offhand quip that explains cancel culture, the political weapon of cancel culture as propaganda, perfectly. You play the hand...

    I'd start with forcing them to print all of their contributions to rightwing pacs. It's becoming more important for companies to produce marketing that appeals to the changing sensibilities of their customer...

    If we're gonna start forcing private companies to print things they don't want to then I can find things less contraversial to start with. There's a Star Wars Omnibus of Tales of the Jedi comics that I'd love...

    Cancelling a thing requires either vast swathes of the population deciding to avoid dealing with or for industries that are necessary to it to turn around and say, "We're done with you." If Dr. Seuss and Pepe...
