    Rather than put someone on "Ignore" that is just simply dumb. Not saying it's mack or price or anyone else in particular, but I have an idea. Code could be written so that someone on "Retard" could post and filters would transform their jibberish into a coherent post. I think it should be available to premium members for sure. :thumb:

    My posts are coherent. Mack's posts are getting better, but those damn kids from SB are driving me CRAZY!

    If they can not filter out a simple six letter word that begis with n and ends in r that most people find offensive......

    But as a Premium member I'd have the retard function, I'd rather they add another word to their filter.

    I'm not as suprised that it's not filtered as I am that someone chose to use it.

    In retrospect, there is no amount of programming that can unretard those two. If there was, I am sure it would take more mainframe to run it than we could come up with. :think:

    You do know that some businesses still run them, right??? You do know that they are still powerful, right??? I actually was an operator at my last job.

    :D Bwhahaha! Awesome! I've only ever seen them in crinkled black and white photos myself, so I guess you're lucky to have lived through that era. Can you teach me the Jitterbug? :D ;)

    Google:

    "No standard web pages containing all your search terms were found.

    Your search - Mainframe - did not match any documents.

    Suggestions:

    - Make sure all words are spelled correctly.
    - Try different keywords.
    - Try more general keywords.
    - Try fewer keywords."

    Now this is some serious thread deterioration.....not only would a retard filter be nice, but RM could seriously use a tool that stops people from posting on things that are way off point and derail threads. (That and a spell checker too.....damn, some people can't spell to save their life)!

    A good way to filter out 90% of retarded posts would be to ban Loco.

    for those of you still running IE, all you need is a simple "right-click" and select the 2nd from bottom option:

    We still have one at work.

    Trouble is it's the size of a large suitcase.

    How the f**k can they call something tiny like that a "mainframe"?

    It ain't right, I tell ya.........

    I contend that every company of more than 2000 employees has a VAX hiding *somewhere* in the company. :D

    We have a VAX emulator running legacy junk. :thumb:
