    And I'm sure you'd only be okay with it provided you're one of the ones invited.

    good god this post is moronic for several reasons
    Well, I open my eyes and I see things. I've seen spirits moving through the walls. I've seen a vortex coming through the wall. I've seen amorphous little balls of light bouncing all around in the front yard through the window. I've seen giant bugs on the floor. I was in a hotel room in Amarillo, Texas, and all I remember is standing on the bed and seeing the whole wall in front of me filled with lights that were [makes popping sound] popping like popcorn out of the wall. Then I'll wake up and I go "Wow, I was standing on my bed and staring at this wall."

    Invite only forums never last long.

    Just look at gr00vy. Remove the fact that gr00vy 4 is still around only because Mario refuses to post anywhere else, they were very temporary.

    no it's not elitism; if you had bothered reading the thread instead of looking for a perfect window of opportunity to let everyone know how much of a holier-than-thou pseudo intellectual you are, you'd know we'd say it's invite only for the sake of privacy protection. and obviously if it was my fucking idea and i'm a core member of both forums as well as an ex-admin (technically of pd as well) i'd get an invite. as for anyone who doesn't get an invite? i don't think any of us would be mean enough to leave anyone out but if we did, they must have had to really fuck up. why am i even going into the mechanics this was purely hypothetical to begin with

    yeah but this is assuming a complete migration of active posters from pd and inactive posters from cosmo to the new forum would take place. with dedicated concentration like that you don't need an influx of new members, just a bubble

    no, rarity increases demand. what if there were like, invite codes, given out once every three months. word would spread around, people would want to get in based on being able to alone. it's a risky tactic but it might be crazy enough to work

    private forums are stupid, they literally don't make any logistical sense, people leave forums

    yup.

    "Mr. Owens, you;re running for the Mississippi Congress and yet youve posted consistently on a pokemon forum?"

    "Yeah, So? I also like Fried foods and I have sex with my wife. Thomas Jefferson had black kids!"

    "Touche"

    And I win by a landslide.

    "Fact A: I work in Child Nutrition, and Fact B: Political Correctness has gotten to the point where no red blooded American can speak their mind. It's time for us as a nation to just get over it. People are going to say mean things. Bullying in schools might be a problem, a problem we're working on as a society, but you know what, trying to police people's speech is not the way to run a nation. We're built on freedoms. Those freedoms are being steadily stripped from the American people, and I will not stand for it. I'm certain that the majority of the nation won't stand for it either. I also support the right for gays to have some form of union comparable to marriage. I say comparable because the intent of marriage is to PRODUCE children, something that a joined gay couple are unable to do on their own. I DO support their right to be together though, so definately something comparable. Bush was a terrible president, so was Obama. We need real change and as long as political correctness nazis and the ridiculously wealthy remain in office, we will see no positive change in this great Nation. Next question."

    See? This is a prime example of how the fat cat lobbyists are trying to curb your freedoms by dragging down your hard working red blooded american candidates, so that they can put their rich boy sycophants on the throne. As long as we let them push us around, the Eagle will be a bird with clipped wings.

    I never made FUN of a child for his autism, merely used it as a descriptive term. Everyone can see how this agent of a skewed, far left liberal agenda is attacking a candidate who can get us back on the right track. Do we need wellfare? Of course we do. But there need to be limits and measures put into place to see that the people that need it are getting it, and more importantly help to make them self sustaining. If we just let these lobbyists, like Mr. Justin for instance, win, by putting one of their pawns in office, the next thing you know, the top 1% well be working the system to get welfare. How is that fair to you, the average tax payer? I guess you'd have to ask Mr. Justin.
