There was an opportunity for some relevant discussion on the "niggardly" thread but I guess not. It just goes to show how strongly people here feel about these things. Its not racism, I believe. Without these types of things thrown in our faces even a racist might come around. These things are more divisive than anything. I honestly believe that woman on H&C was too stupid to know what she was actually doing. JMHO BP

I'd call the action of the moderator definitely not niggardly.z

Unreal. When will all the PC crap stop?

I think the mods are too niggardly about allowing us to express our thoughts and concerns.

I absolutely agree. I had a question, but I couldn't get it in before the quick trigger-fingered lock. My question is this. The word "niggardly" pre-dates the word "nigger" by at least 100 years. This being the case, why would Blacks want to take ownership of this word and secondly, why do they feel they have the right to take ownership of a word that has nothing to do with them? By taking ownership, I mean the belief that that word applies to their race.

It has not been locked yet.... and I think Mattja makes a valid point, if the word has no racial slurs inherent, meaning it was not based off of a racial slur, and even predates said racial slur, why is everyone acting like it is the worst word in the world? edited because I can not spell for shite today

This is what I thought when I read the thread. Someone tryin' to get folks all worked up. How about a thread on inbred southern folk? (just joshin') [:D] AB

Granted, some members will start a thread that’s barely within the board rules with the clear intention that it will quickly move outside the rules. They fool only themselves with their cleverness - invariably their thread gets locked and they squeal like stuck pigs (sound of small violin playing). However, I think this one started as a quite legitimate thread raising some valid points. Regardless, one opportunistic member seized the chance to make a racist remark - at which point [b]tatjana[/b] quite legitimately shut things down. IMHO [b]captainpooby[/b] can be correctly irritated at the thread being locked, but not with [b]tatjana[/b] doing it.

I think the red bottle is temporary and the blue bottle is permenant but you may want to check here: [url]http://www.loctite.com/[/url] Nothing to see here, carry on, carry on.

As a mechanic in my previous life, I always wondered how come you CAN get the cap off the red Loctite bottle.

If you mix the two does it become SEMI-permenant ? [;D]

Must I solve all the world's problems single handedly? It's: EmbiggeRates Loctite isn't designed to lock PLASTIC. See also: why doesn't the acid eat thru the storage container?

OHC you are pretty smart fella. Maybe you can tell us how a thermos knows whether to keep the liquid hot OR cold. Lets see you get that one smartyhead. BP

I'm confused. I thought "niggardly" meant "miserly" or "cheap", but given the above usages I think I might be wrong. So, what does it mean? I guess I could pull out a dictionary, but it is at least 3.5 feet away from me and I am just too lazy.

Seadweller, its a joke.
