Do you want any special rules,

    Do you want any special rules,

    or just have a free for all no holds barred exhibition of dog and cat fighting back stabbing bicker fest?

    We going to enforce some sort of age limit (lower) to join? Is that even legal?

    What are your thoughts on these weighty matters of decorum?

    EDIT FOR CONTENT:

    Wait a goldarn minute! I thinks me mispoken.

    What I am asking about is what if anything should not be allowed in this forum. If you post Putin crap in Progressive Parties, you’re probably going to be asked to take it somewhere else more fitting of the subject.

    Do we just want to have our own little world where all the other topics are here but being posted by old farts?

    Or should this be somehow, I don’t know how, somewhat limited to mature issues?

      1. How would you enforce an age restriction?

      Require a Birth Certificate or Picture ID?

      Let’s not build any more fences.

        8. Bullshit. I tell lots of these stories.

          35. Ahem….TOY Vader. Not Lord Vader.

          I still like Baby Vader better.

          It's beginning to look a lot like fuck this.

      3. Keep in mind…

      Site rules still apply.

        9. Of course they do.

        I just want to see what those of us that are actually in this group (i.e. aged and infirm) want besides those rules, if they’re legal.

            13. Now now,

            we know you want to come and play with the grown ups. Just keep in mind that you’re not old enough to understand some of the things we’re going to be talking about.

      5. Since we are allegedly very mature adults I would be opposed to heavy handed

      site management.  Until some of us old farts prove we can’t handle the freedom, just let us post and don’t take anything too seriously.

      Age limits?  Probably not legal, and you aren’t going to inspect birth certificates anyway.  But if there is a consensus that age limits are a good idea, I would suggest you have to have been alive when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor in order to join.

        7. Not only alive when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor, but able–and annoyingly

        willing–to recount in detail where you were and what you were doing when you heard it.

        (Watching a movie with John Belushi in it does not count.)

      6. Site rules only

      No age limit.  We can learn from young whippersnappers.

      Now get off my lawn.

      11. Site rules only, please. No age limit–sheesh.

      50 qualifies one for AARP and 62 for SS, 65 for Medicare. What would we choose? I think we have many members who are ‘old souls’ and maybe we can all learn from each other.

      Example: Some might possibly be dealing with aging parents/grandparents and probably see a lot of stuff some of us are currently doing that they could help us with—like HIRE someone to go up on the roof.

      21. Everyone should be able to post.

      I’d assumed that the purpose of the group was to provide a convenient home for issues that solely or primarily concern seniors.

      Proposal for Medicare for All — might as well post that in GD.  Proposal to change payments by or benefits provided to Medicare recipients — that could be in Seniors.

      There’s no reason to bar younger people from participating.  I’d even allow them to quote Justin Bieber lyrics if they want to.  Even though today’s music is just garbage compared to what we listened to.

          25. Thanks! That suggests one possible rule.

          Every OP must include a clip from an artist (individual or group) that’s been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

          If you want to start a thread in Seniors, you don’t have to meet a formal age test, but you must at least prove that you belong.
