    So in our country we don't think that a 14  year old is competent enough to make medical decisions for themselves, to sign contracts, to decide whether or not to go to school, to get a tattoo, to get more »

    Say I'm going to a new city, say Chicago, and I know a lot of people on facebook who live in that city, and I say, "All Chicago residents, where is a good place to take a big group for dinner?" Is tha more »

    I'm surprised no one has mentioned the most practical reason of all why a woman might want a degree even if she goes in knowing that she plans to be a housewife/stay at home mom....what if the marriag more »

    I don't understand why getting a degree and later becoming a stay at home mom is a waste of money. That's what I want out of my life. I have a master's degree and a job now, but I look forward to gett more »

    Posted 11/15/2011 02:57:23 EST

    I don't have a landline, but I think once I was living in a more permanent place, not just short term apartments, I'd consider getting one as a back-up. But by and large, as long as the service was go more »

    Nitanny, I'd leave now, you're just going to get more upset than you already were and engaging Sean will be no more productive or helpful for you than engaging this guy at your work. more »

    I can't add to the excellent advice given to nittanny, but I just wanted to say how much I like TCD's advice for dealing with these type of conversations in settings where a thorough airing of views i more »

    I vote for #2, DG. Kids are going to get picked on for all sorts of stuff. IMO you don't make them the weirdos for the stuff that doesn't matter and is within your control so that they'll have the str more »

    To the question of whether you should just accept an institution's rules... I think a couple of things are in play. 1) Knowing how to choose your battles. Not everything is worth the fight. You have t more »

    Wow... Well, I just finished reading what had posted since I went to bed Friday night and I am sorry to see things degenerated a bit here. Some thoughts: Again, I think getting caught up on what is or more »

    Well to quote something my dad said often:

    It's been real. It's been fun. But it hasn't been real fun.

    :)

    J/K I think this has been a good conversation, but it's bed time for me.

    Good night everyone!

    And also, I agree, that had it been directed at me, depending on how much free time I had, I'd either engage sarcastically or rationally (depending on the post) or ignore as I have in past. I don't se more »

    I was not personally offended by the rooster, Porkchop, he didn't say anything to me. I found it obnoxious and mean, and something I rather not see on this blog, but I was not offended myself. I'm mer more »

    I see your point Porkchop, but is that really all it takes then? If I create some sock puppet and make it "out there" enough, I have free rein to say whatever I please to whoever I please? I rather no more »

    Well, I would lean towards agreeing with that McRob, but again the problem is the meaning of the word "bully" is so expansive and vague I can see how CHC can end up on the other side of the divide. Bu more »

    Posted 11/05/2011 12:15:02 EDT

    I don't really want to get sucked up into this debate on "bullying." The word only means "to treat abusively" in which case almost anything intentionally cruel would be bullying.  I've had a hard time more »

    Porkchop, I agree the sockpuppet speculation gets a bit tiring, but I think the reason for that is that people are trying to decide whether or not to be offended. If it's a regular just doing a schtic more »

    CHC, if that is indeed the case, that moderators don't automatically remove offensive material until/unless somebody flags it, then I think that's a problem. I guess with a site as large as BDC with s more »

    Posted 11/04/2011 11:04:30 EDT

    I'm a little unclear on a point...do moderators *only* remove a post that's been flagged by a user?? They don't just follow along looking for things that violate the policy? It would seem that they wo more »
