    I don't think enough people know about this site. I came to it quite by happenstance. Also, I think the fact that people can be brutally honest and snarky kind of keeps the snowflakes away. I have enjoyed sparring, getting mad, and getting along, in equal measure. But, my skin is thick. It's a shame that people get scared away by straight talk.

    I think, by far, you get the award for the most entertaining member. Love to read your latest legal exploits. How did it turn out for your buddy who got the deferred on the retaliation? You went kind of silent on that. Did he get off? Were the suits successful?

    And, being an IT geek who can hack anyone - what is your position on "hacktivism?" Do you think Bradley Manning, or Edward Snowden, or Julian Assange are heroes, or outlaws, or a bit of both? Just curious.

    Just to note how many people come here.
    This week you have had approximately 20 posters (some of them rarely post) and about 13 lurkers.

    Oddly, the "Total members that have visited the forum in the last 24 hours: 29" at the bottom of the page shows 5 more than that, so I would guess there are 5 people who lurk here using the 'cloaking' feature. Possibly members of law enforcement or media.

    I do agree the honesty in here probably scares some of them away.

    I don't mind being called far right.
    I have been right so far.

    1) Travis Sheppard ( who allegedly retaliated against a Brazos County Judge ) is about to be released from deferred adjudication, so I am told by his dad last week.

    2) Our Federal suit was shoved up my/his - A--. But it did get everyone's attention, and the Texas trooper got stomped for illegally using Texas State resources to help his buddy in a divorce proceeding, that was banging Travis's wife.

    3) I am on the fence on Snowden. He is an NSA contractor that abused his access, and exploited his friends. But his information was extremely useful to people I hang with.

    4) Julian Assange is a hero in my book. He will be back on the scene very soon.

    It IS possible to 'lurk' here for a short time without logging in. I've sometimes forgotten to log in on occasion, and I've been able to read some posts, before getting a reminder that I have reached the end of my "free access", and need to register or just sign in. Maybe some people just up and leave when they get "caught"?

    That is possible, but I think they are using the method I used to use, when the forum had nearly 100 posters.
    Click here:
    http://www.centextalk.com/vb/profile.php?do=editoptions
    The first item on the list should be:
    Invisible Mode:
    Invisible Mode on
    Invisible Mode off
    Invisible mode allows you to browse the forums without appearing in the 'Currently Active Users' lists.
    Click "Invisible Mode" and it won't list you, but it will count you, in the statistics.

    I have been right so far.

    I am not a lurker in a voyeuristic way, I just listen more than I post. Sometimes it is because I generally agree, sometimes I don't think its worth an argument. I do enjoy the forum and will try to contribute more. Thanks to all for years worth of enlightenment, entertainment, education, and a little angst.

  15. Thanks Rick, Mestral, txswimmer thanked this post
