    Discussion: Guidelines For Referencing Articles From Another Site

    If you reference an article or study from another site, please do not post the entire article or study within your post. Simply quote a small segment of it, along with a link to the source.

    You should also use our quote function to help make it clear that the words are not yours.

    Example: A quoted section would look like the following.

    “I suppose I am a prepper,” I said, “because what most people call prepping I just call life. I grew up in a small, isolated town in a poor family. We learned to do things ourselves in order to survive. But more importantly, I am a hunter. So, yeah, I guess I am a prepper. At least, I have a lot of the skills and tools needed to get through a troubled time.” https://www.americanhunter.org/artic...pper-survivor/
    Additionally, we should NOT share pictures from another site without permission to do so.

    Please do not just post a link to an article without adding your own thoughts regarding the information you are sharing.

    First you have to give up. First you have to know, not fear, know that someday you're going to die.

    Oops for got my 2 pennies
    Moderators witb Internet God complexs are quite abundant as well as the little cry baby whining pricks who go behind scene an pm them to flex their finger mussels an ban someone.
    Ok how about now?
    ------------------
    Urban dictionary :Moderator
    Moderators are assigned to "moderate" something which means they are in charge of seeing that it does what it is supposed to do and nothing more.

    Most moderators are driven mad by their lust for power and will cause suffering and hatred at every turn because it makes them happy to see others unhappy.
    (n.)Someone who moderates a chatroom or message board. There are generally five types of moderators:

    1. Asswipe: Moderator that likes to punish members for little or no reason, harasses members and then punishes them for harassing back or questioning them, or is an asshole in general to those around him, not including his suckup friends, who will respond to his powerabuse with: "lol", "pwned bitch", or "wut a fag".

    2. Strict Moderator: Follows the rules by the book, no exceptions. Any rule infraction spotted will be punished, often without warning. Normally dreaded.
