Hello everyone. I have arrived here by the good graces of RE from the Doomstead Diner and hope to provide stimulating information on topics such as energy, innovations, truth and consequences.

I, A. G. Gelbert,  will be the administrator.

I hope all who come can argue about everything under the sun and anything else they think of but I just ask you to keep it rational.

Here are the rules for those who didn't read them well when they registered.

Registration Agreement

You agree, through your use of this forum, that you will not post any material which is false, defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, adult material, or otherwise in violation of any International or United States Federal law. You also agree not to post any copyrighted material unless you own the copyright or you have written consent from the owner of the copyrighted material. Spam, flooding, advertisements, chain letters, pyramid schemes, and solicitations are also forbidden on this forum.

Note that it is impossible for the staff or the owners of this forum to confirm the validity of posts. Please remember that we do not actively monitor the posted messages, and as such, are not responsible for the content contained within. We do not warrant the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of any information presented. The posted messages express the views of the author, and not necessarily the views of this forum, its staff, its subsidiaries, or this forum's owner.

Anyone who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to notify an administrator or moderator of this forum immediately. The staff and the owner of this forum reserve the right to remove objectionable content, within a reasonable time frame, if they determine that removal is necessary. This is a manual process, however, please realize that they may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately. This policy applies to member profile information as well.


You remain solely responsible for the content of your posted messages. Furthermore, you agree to indemnify and hold harmless the owners of this forum, any related websites to this forum, its staff, and its subsidiaries. The owners of this forum also reserve the right to reveal your identity (or any other related information collected on this service) in the event of a formal complaint or legal action arising from any situation caused by your use of this forum.

You have the ability, as you register, to choose your username. We advise that you keep the name appropriate. With this user account you are about to register, you agree to never give your password out to another person except an administrator, for your protection and for validity reasons. You also agree to NEVER use another person's account for any reason. We also HIGHLY recommend you use a complex and unique password for your account, to prevent account theft.

After you register and login to this forum, you will be able to fill out a detailed profile. It is your responsibility to present clean and accurate information. Any information the forum owner or staff determines to be inaccurate or vulgar in nature will be removed, with or without prior notice. Appropriate sanctions may be applicable.

Please note that with each post, your IP address is recorded, in the event that you need to be banned from this forum or your ISP contacted. This will only happen in the event of a major violation of this agreement or violation/spam posting!!! Spamming will result in immediate and unnoticed Banning.

Also note that the software places a cookie, a text file containing bits of information (such as your username and password), in your browser's cache. This is ONLY used to keep you logged in/out. The software does not collect or send any other form of information to your computer.

Please be as helpful and as nice as possible some members are new and not very good at computers!

Give me a little time to get organized and start providing posting fodder. I promise you won't be disappointed by the content. Have a good day.

Hi AG,

In re this-

You also agree not to post any copyrighted material unless you own the copyright or you have written consent from the owner of the copyrighted material.

This would seem to preclude cross-posting articles from most other websites unless they expressly post a Creative Commons license, yes? Am I understanding your intent correctly?

Nice forum.

Nice forum.

Yes, I read that bit of boilerplate from the registration and was uncomfortable with it as well. Consequently I placed large bold font on the part I am mainly concerned with... ;D

According to something I learned long ago in a course in law as part of a business administration course of study back in the 1970s, in the USA, laws are challenged by testing them.  ;D

I asked our prof. Do you mean to say I just can't claim a law is unconstitutional or wrong somehow? He said, "Not unless you are a legislator writing to change the law. In order for a common citizen to get a law changed, they must "test" (break) the law, be taken to court and have the courts rule in your favor. That forms Stari Decicis (case law) that is then used as a precedent to ignore the law legally."  ;D

The bottom line Vox Populi, Vox Dei (the voice of the people is the voice of God for the courts) is that certain laws are not enforceable...  ;D

For new arrivals: The Global Moderator here, Surly1, also manages the Doomstead Diner Facebook Page.  Be sure and check it out for interesting and thought provoking articles. Surly1 is a wordsmith with a vocabulary and such skill at explaining complex subjects in succinct and accurate terms that just reading his comments can save you hours of reading. I highly recommend this Occupy Veteran's prose and linked stories.

Surly1 is a man of peace, but as his handle implies, don't take lightly his views or opinions. He has a lifetime of experience at seriously thinking about what ails Homo Sap and how to go about, if such a thing is possible at this late date, improving the lot of mankind.


Surly1's message to the Facebook Page Readers:

"Welcome to the Doomstead Diner, a hub for discussion and information pertaining to the ongoing Economic Collapse of the Industrial Economy." plus other copy from here. I really try to mirror the tone and tenor of this place and its denizens.
