Topic February Fast Approaches... Donald Trump is being taken seriously... Should we be TERRIFIED???
Posted 26 Jul 2016 16:27

Anyone see the 60 Minutes interview with Chump and his running mate? It was laughable. Cringe worthy. They dodged questions and stammered their way through the ones they thought they answered satisfactorily. Trump was rude and spoke over the interviewer constantly, and all the while it was like he had a gun pointed in Pence's back to make sure he said what Trump wanted to hear, and not what he really thought. They have different views on things, that's no secret, and when Trump was asked if he would listen to the advice given to him on certain things, he said he would listen, but there is no way in hell he is going to let that alter his final decision. He's far too egotistical for that. Ego's and politics, a bad combination. He sat forward in his chair in a very defensive, passive aggressive manner. Does the world need someone like that in a position of power as high as the US President? I think the world should get to vote on this as well.

I just find it odd that a lot of people are complaining about the two nominees for differing reasons, when ultimately it was the American people who have put them there. I guess most didn't think they would need to go and vote, that common sense would prevail, things would take care of themselves. Well I just did a quick search and ball park figures showed that only 1 in 3 illegible voters nationwide got off their couches and voted. Some states were as low as 1 in 5. So 66% of the country is probably kicking itself right now.

I have moved this to here. Not sure what it was in the video sharing part of the forum, and both genders have given input.

Topic Which improvements or features would you like to see added?
Posted 22 Jul 2016 06:18

Where the thread page count is, I'd like a "Next" button added. Clicking on the individual numbers on handheld devices can be hit and miss. At least the word "Next" is a little larger and should improve ones strike rate in getting to the next page.

Topic Experimenting with the Notifications API
Posted 18 Jul 2016 17:56

If it was limited just to lush it would be ok, but it pops up in every window I have open...

Actually, this is what the feature is made for. If you only had Lush open on one tab or browser, you would see the black box because its the only window open. If you had multiple tabs open, and Lush was one of them, you will get the extra notification on all tabs, including the Lush one, regardless of what tab you had active so you dont miss any messages. Why someone insinuated you are always logged in was because if you weren't, you would not get the notification. People read between the lines they are given. For those that dont like it, next time it pops up, click on the settings of the pop up (looks like a gear or cog) and turn it off. Its really that simple.

Topic The Rage Cage
Posted 11 Jul 2016 06:46

You!! Yes, you. The guy driving in the middle lane, not passing anyone. And you as well, yeah, the guy in front of this other asshole I am referring to. You are also just putting along in the middle lane. Get the fuck over to the slow lane. Keep left unless overtaking does not mean keep middle. If I gave you three things and lined them up in a row and asked you to pick up the one on the left, would you grab the middle one??? NO!! That's right, because I asked you to pick the one up on the left, and left is not the same as middle. Like the sign says to the keep left. Now, get the fuck over, and out of everyone's way. Its cockheads like you that piss other motorists off, and its really not necessary if you adhere to the road rules...director

Let us not panic. I am sure it has something to do with site maintenance and things will return to normal shortly. Good chance for some to get some fresh air.

Topic Chat room for transgendered.
Posted 09 Jul 2016 16:26

The best option is to create your own room, with assigned room monitors (room owner is assigned and can assign their own in their absence) and your own set of rules. Lush has tried the dedicated room thing before, like an image room which prove to be the most popular but no one used it, so it was removed. Another thing, if one was created for what ever genre, there's nothing to stop people coming in and harassing other members. There's no idiot filter, yet in your own room, you'd be able to boot these pests. And I suggest blocking anyone who does harass you.

Posted 03 Jul 2016 23:06

I'd prefer a thumbs up/down system. Much simpler and it would avoid this low score drama. Personally, I don't care as much about scoring as I do about receiving comments. If someone takes time to write, at least they were moved enough by the story to want to respond to it. I appreciate that.

I would not give a thumbs up to a story that I only thought was worthy of a 2.5 or a little more.

Topic Gas Prices Need to Go Up!
Posted 25 Jun 2016 22:40

Personally, I dont like them either. But its the people who drive them that are the real issue here when it comes to safety, not the vehicle itself. I was in Houston a couple months ago when the floods hit. I had to drive my tiny little rental car through rain and standing water on the freeways with white knuckles and great difficulty. At the same time, the these cowboy hillbilly rednecks in their big pickups chose to ignore the horrific driving conditions and go about their business like the roads were completely dry and the sun was shining. Total reckless behaviour. So for me its the morons with the 'get out of my way, I'm bigger than you' attitude that pisses me off. You are barking up the wrong tree if you think that higher gas prices are going to make the roads safer. Its not.

Topic Muirfield Golf Club - Blatant Sexism
Posted 17 Jun 2016 01:26

Looks like we have a contender for the most stupid post of the week award.

My dad plays golf, and he is absolutely shit at it. But he still gets to play. Excluding all women from a club because of a misogynistic belief that they are inferior at a particular sport is sexist bullshit.

You're a moron.

+1..and 2...oh, and 3. I think moron was overly polite. Clearly, pussyprick, you're better than Lydia Ko, based on your belief that all women are inferior to all male golfers, including yourself. Just another idiotic post. You're on a roll.

Topic February Fast Approaches... Donald Trump is being taken seriously... Should we be TERRIFIED???
Posted 13 Jun 2016 02:31

What I dont understand is this. I have browsed this forum since it started, and from what I have noticed, he has no (or maybe little, I have not read every single post) support at all. If we say Lush is a slice of normal (?) society, and there is no support for him here, how the hell has he gotten to this point? Are his supporters here just too afraid to admit they will vote for him and that they agree with his policies, if you can call them that? I dont get it, at all. God fucking help us.

Topic Online music streaming. What do you use?
Posted 04 Jun 2016 22:08

So, I have been using Spotify for about 6 months. I think for the most part, its great service that is reliable and has great features. I really like the fact that you can save the music to your devices and listen when there is no internet connection (like on a plane, I fly a lot). However, there seems to be one thing that is missing, well, its a feature that has been removed on the mobile app and there has been quite a stink created about on boards everywhere. That is, the ability to save music you already have in say MP3 format to your playlists. It works on the PC based version, but not the mobile version. For this reason, I am looking at an alternative. Not all the music I like has been made available on Spotify either, so usually what I do is if there is a video clip, I will grab the audio with Audacity (a very useful program in its own right) and add the audio file. I know there are a few options, but there are many with pros and cons of their own, so I am hoping to wade through the rubbish and get feedback from actual users, not from online sites that road test this kind of thing. So, what are you guys using?

Topic Who is your celebrity crush?
Posted 04 Jun 2016 19:59

I only answer intelligent questions, like why I was banned & not even told, whereas you were allowed to violate rules repeatedly long before I came & after I was wrongfully removed.

If you feel you have been so unfairly mistreated, then why return? If a friend screwed you over, or you thought they had, in your humble opinion, would you continue to be friends with that person? Seems like an intelligent question to me.

Topic Muirfield Golf Club - Blatant Sexism
Posted 29 May 2016 05:53

my golf club in Australia only allowed us to play on Tuesdays and Sunday afternoons... they get away with that by calling the Ladies 'Asssociate Members' ... and we paying a reduced fee ... but at some clubs we pay full fees even if yr spouse is a member ... but still have unequal playing rights... such is life!

Well I totally support the R and A's decision to remove the rights for them to host an Open in the future. Total horse shit. In an effort to buck the trend of golf, the club that I am a member of even allows Associate members to compete within the men's competition. Of course to do so, they have to pay the full membership that the men do, but it gives them greater flexibility in when they can play. I think we have up to 5 events a week where the women have 2 (mixed on Sunday's and Associates only on Wednesdays). In a sport like golf, the field's are evened out with the handicap system, so there is no reason why men and women cant compete against each other, regardless of whats considered "the norm".

Topic Can a profile be too long?
Posted 25 Apr 2016 19:26

If your bio goes much beyond the height of your avatar, or at worse, I have to scroll to keep reading, you'll likely lose me. Not that I am a friend collector anyway, so nobody's loss. When you need hundreds of words to describe yourself, for me, you are far too complicated. There are other things on your profile that can sound the alarm for me but I wont go into that. But it is your profile. It might be something too think about if your friend requests go unanswered.

I really wish I would stop getting the reminders about updating. Its not going to happen. I even purchased a copy of W7 two years ago just in case one of my computers failed and I was forced to purchase a new one with either W8 or the current 10. By the way, what happened to Windows 9? And dont tell me it was 8.1, because that makes no numeric sense either. I just dont understand why Microsoft cant fix the bugs without forcing you to learn how to use an operating system again. They do the same shit with Office and Outlook.
