Both of you, take it from me; I find being superior a burden rather than an asset--one I bare regally, but nevertheless.. Posted: 06/03/2012 04:43:00Last Edit: 06/03/2012 04:45:04 by Groaner
Granted, but you didn't mean it in that manner. You meant - showing a consciousness or feeling of being better than or above others. To that I say I disagree, and believe it to be wrong. Posted: 06/03/2012 04:44:17

You would think, when our children grew up, they would smile, and clue us in as to how they duped us at every turn when we thought we were leading them down the right paths. Posted: 06/03/2012 04:50:20
Like all of us, I never thought to tune them in to the fact that, as a youngster, I was convinced they--and anyone else their age--weren't from this planet. Posted: 06/03/2012 04:55:07
In all those many profound talks from my parents, passing of knowledge, wisdom and expectations, I tried to keep a tiny part of my mind (and only a tiny part) alert for pauses, or inquiring looks, where I was expected to inject an, "uh huh" to show that I was listening. Posted: 06/03/2012 05:05:12

Okay, I go to bed and we're talking PayPal, I wake up and it's Dr. Phil. Parenting? Virginity? My God, corporate entities are getting way too far into our personal lives... Posted: 06/03/2012 21:00:13
My son is 15 and a half...
And I'm not getting involved in that discussion...

Amazon Kindle doesn't publish these books. They reject them and send the publisher an email. People used to go through Smashwords to get the books on Amazon. The Kindle boards had threads about this.

I can see why a book seller may decide not to stock certain titles and genres. They are professionals in the field and have some expertise about what will sell and what their customers will tolerate.
I can see why a government might make a policy about what titles and images can appear in public places or be accessible by minors, and to even want to supress inflammatory works. At least they have our implicit permission to attempt these things; we voted for them.
But Paypal! What the frig have they got to do with anything? Who died and made them President of the World, Arbiter of Taste and Book-Burner General? All that money has gone to their collective head. Posted: 07/03/2012 13:11:01Last Edit: 07/03/2012 13:12:41 by Baccus
