I got 16, and I still don't know what an Oxford comma is, even with an example.

I'm the low scorer so far but you can't expect blood form a turnip.

I deal with commercial drivers so grammatical stuff is entirely optional.  However, a good grasp of 4 letter words is manfatory.

You weren't lying.

This is what I see when I visit:

"Sorry Frenchfry, you are banned from posting and sending personal messages on this forum.
This ban is not set to expire."

No emails, no warnings, no communication whatsoever...just that ban

May be what happened to the other libs as well.

I guess disabling the report to admin link only on the lib side was indicative of the slanted games they play.

Enjoy your spoon-fed Faux News type right-wing echo-chamber.

Edited to add:

This is the only way to answer some of the questions posed:

1) I did nothing to warrant the banishment, it's political.

2) It's the router that's blocked but considering all the nonsense right-wing games being played by those running the site...it's just not worth it to bypass the banishment block.

3) The moron stalkers from MT contemplating a visit will be considered a threat and can expect to have a bad day if they act upon those idiotic thoughts.

I matched you Flip - but I was guessing half the time - just like I did in English class on tests I might add.

It gave me a compliment for my skill at 13 I might add.
