    Default Backroom

    The Backroom is now open to all new members, members and senior members. It's no longer required to ask permission to access it. The only requirement to access it now, is having a postcount of 1.

    You mean it is open not just to viewers, but posters?

    Damn it Andres, you're just doing it so you can get newbie votes.

    Stop destroying our Backroom!

    This was the way with some men. They sealed themselves in, bricked their ears and their mouths, and spent their remaining days speaking only with their eyes—until these too became inscrutable. Many, you could wager, held chaos in their hearts, shrill and juvenile. But since ignorance is immovable, they seem immovable, imperturbable. Such is the power of silence.
    it is time we attempt to conceptualize proximate and ultimate forms of causation in terms consistent with philosophical materialism, not in terms consistent with mind-body dualism.

    I believe this is a very good change.
    Hammer, anvil, forge and fire, chase away The Hoofed Liar. Roof and doorway, block and beam, chase The Trickster from our dreams.
    Vigilance is our shield, that protects us from our squalid past. Knowledge is our weapon, with which we carve a path to an enlightened future.

    *cackle* Like lambs.....
    There are times I wish they’d just ban everything- baccy and beer, burgers and bangers, and all the rest- once and for all. Instead, they creep forward one apparently tiny step at a time. It’s like being executed with a bacon slicer.

    Indeed.

    The Backroom staff still reserve the right to ban people from the sub-forum, however.

    But we don't hope such drastic measures are ever necessary, do we?

    What happened to all the stuff about keeping the resident abomination hidden from the faint-hearted new members.

    The resident abomination is now seen as an asset to this site and all faint-hearted new members are invited to get a good scare.

    It's not a bug, it's a feature!

    The Backroom isn't as bad as it's made out to be anyway.
    It's like a family. (think "Married with Children")
