Genuine question. how does one become a moderator? I'm not interested in the position myself but I would like to know how you lot are appointed.

Or is it some kind of ancient secret known only to our lizard overlords?

You're simply nominated and chosen by your peers. There was once a democratic vote but that ended in vote manipulation, sensitive information in Area 51 being shared by one Mod to regular posters via PM and the Mod Wars. So to curtail such tedious bollocks in the future it was decreed that regular posters would no longer have any say in the matter. When an opening arises the Mods discuss potential candidates based on certain criteria (they're not a dick, contribute to the Forum regularly, love Evil Dead 2, have shown potential for deflating conflict between other posters when things are getting out of hand) and then choose the best of the bunch. That's pretty much it.

Well I'd be 50% of the way there.  Cheers for the info.

I agree with the Republican view on abortion: "I'm in favor of abortion being legal in the case of rape and incest, and the health and life of the mother."

Abortion = murder. Also, If abortions were illegal:

- Unprotected sex would decrease (younger generation would think twice)
- Price of contraception would decrease (more demand)
- Acceptability of single virgins would increase (yay)

Plus if abortion was illegal, you'd get an increase in the numbers of backstreet or self-induced abortions, which bring with them, what is it, about 70,000 deaths every year at the moment worldwide, plus injuries, both physical and mental.

And abortion being illegal wouldn't stop underage sex.

And it's a huge infringement on women's rights which we are lucky to have in this country.


Edit: Sorry for taking it off topic/rising to the bait.

Not all republicans think that way, some believe the whole 'abortion= murder' thing means just that. Which is why some numpties say things like 'legitimate rape'. Also it is a huge kick in the teeth for woman's rights. It is their body and should be able to do with it as they wish.

Genuine question, you say you think abortion should only be legal in certain circumstances, so you want a law passed that says women shouldn't have control over this aspect of their body, right?

Underage sex would decrease because teenage boys would have to start paying child support and confess to their parents about what they've done.

And i'm done on this subject.
