  1. I’ve remained quiet in a lot of this. I have a few things to say. After 42 years of being married to DTEL I can say with complete confidence that if he gets angry about something it’s usually justified.

    As far as posts being arbitrary, all of us have other careers, jobs, businesses and personal responsibilities. There is absolutely no way we can moderate every single post. Trust me, I tried.

    This forum is not a democracy. It is wholly and owned and controlled by Klipsch. The moderators here serve at their pleasure, with no compensation whatsoever. If you are unhappy with the way one or more of us moderate please feel free to contact Chad with your complaints or suggestions. He’s our boss.

    Better yet, if you feel you can assist with moderating please feel free to PM one of us. We will be happy to discuss the duties and responsibilities that come along with the “title”

    For those of you that don’t realize it, we hide a lot of threads, even more comments to try to keep a topic on course. It becomes increasingly difficult when one or more of us can be here in a daily basis. It’s like herding cats. We turn our backs and well, y’all become feral. It’s really ridiculous.

    Each of us have our shortcomings when it comes to moderation. For example, I don’t catch some of the sly innuendos that some of you use regarding politics and insults. I just don’t operate on that level. Therefore I dibt always catch those types of posts. That’s why generally we moderate as a group. No one is ever put on moderated posts or banned without a thorough vetting between moderators.

    Bottom line is that you are grown *ss men doing grown *ss things, try acting like it. Follow the few simple rules.

  2. Interrupting your regularly scheduled program. There is an active shooter reported at the Naval Air Station in Corpus Christi TX. Our very own [mention]USNRET [/mention] is employed at that facility. Prayers for all.

  3. and the people said "Amen!"
     
    Seriously, my big stubby fingers have a hard time typing on the small keyboard of a large for my pocket phone. The voice dictating function works ok but after I press send it looks like a dummy wrote it without any punctuation at all. I still insist that phones are for talking.
     
    customer service representative or human being please doesn't work as well with phone defense systems as it did twenty years ago. Entities still try to route you to go away!
     
    Sign of the times Mr Man.

    The key to using the voice dictation function is to insert the words comma, question mark, period etc where you would normally use them in written language.

    For example: How are you today question mark.
    Will translate to: How are you today?

    Hope that helps!!!

  4. Had 3 years to build them back up.
     
    (I know that's not your quote, Sput.)

    Even if the stockpile was replenished the responsibility lies with the states.

  5. I guess you must have missed the part in the terms of service about whining, bitching and moaning…

    Maybe some of you should refresh yourselves with the “friendly reminder” posted by Chad at the top of the lounge section. You should be grateful the mods are trying to go the extra mile on this thread. cc1cfd327a05e203b3cb33edce48a07e.jpg

  6. Bitter has absolutely nothing to do with it.  It's called reality.  Something that many here refuse to acknowledge.
     
     

    The reality is that what is done darkness always comes to light. That’s beginning to happen, but sadly a very minuscule number of folks here will never admit their beliefs were with the dark side. It’s a pity really. The bitterness, disrespect and anger will continue no matter what darkness is exposed because some will refuse to see the truth no matter what.

  7. Exactly right... to Mar-a-Lago

    Of course it does silly boy. How sad for you to be so bitter.

    When you donate your paycheck you have to make up for it some way.

  8. I don't believe that is happening. Is that happening? And if so, what would be the point?
     
    People who are symptomatic and admitted are tested. If they test positive, they should be coded for COVID-19. I don't think anyone could get away with falsifying that kind of data, at least not for long. That's the problem with conspiracy theories -- it requires that people keep their mouths shut -- and they rarely can.

    FOLLOW THE MONEY!!!!!

  9. I suppose, but only if your stated premise is true.  Why do medical professionals wear masks around sick patients?

    This is why they wear N95 masks along with other PPE.

    But unless they already have it, they are increasing their own odds of contracting it and creating a larger  source of infection Jeff, soo that is a bad thing right ??
     
    Roger

    In my particular case it’s a very bad thing since I’m in one of the vulnerable groups. It’s very frustrating that when I positively must go out that I’m expected to wear a mask that increases my odds of becoming infected.

  11. If all those other people are protecting me by wearing masks, that's a good thing, right?

    It’s a good thing for you.

  12.  

     

     

    NOPE !!

     

    Unless you have a N-95 mask with an air tight seal a mask only protects others from you if you are sick. Unless you have an N-95 mask with an air tight seal, you are actually increasing your own odds of getting sick PERIOD ...

    He’s right you know!!!

  13. It was a German study. In aerosolized form, you have be pretty close - hence the six feet. Some of the conclusions from the study came under heavy fire.  

    A few studies have shown droplets can travel 12 feet or further from a cough or sneeze. I did not personally read those particular reports. Dtel read them and passed the info along. He made the statement that according to one report he read we could be sitting on our front porch and someone passing in their car could pass on the road and if the wind was blowing the droplets could reach the porch. Our porch is approximately 100 feet from the road. Not sure how true that is....but he read it.

  14. After ignoring several calls to my cell phone from an unknown Ohio number with no voicemail left, the persistent caller finally left a voicemail.  It was Ryan from PNC Bank calling to initiate the closing on the PPP loan.  Documents are now reviewed and E-Signed.  The $$$ are to appear in our business checking account soon.
     
    Ryan was a pleasure to deal with.  He informed us that PNC is the 7th largest bank, but processed $14,000,000,000.00, the 3rd largest amount of PPP loans.  That’s punching above your weight.
     
    I’m pleased that I have had a long history with PNC.  They are big enough to get things done, but still provide personal service.

    This is great news. Such a relief for you. Congratulations!!!

  15. A change from all the BS here. Dtel and I are so proud of our oldest daughter. Nice to know how much her employer appreciates her too. She’s on the frontline.
