    But generally, you could consider me a lobbyist, in a way. But I'm more about facilitating grassroots advocacy efforts.

    I'm a lobbyist.

    I don't see why you should be ashamed of saying so.

    The South had democratic representation at all levels of government.
    According to that big document called the Constitution, they could be no more ruled by Washington, then by Whitehall. Nullification is constitutional, and was part of the agreement that States did not have to pass laws that the federal government passed. They also had the right to secede from the United States.

    BTW, we up here in Canada abolished slavery long before you guys got around to it, because that big, bad evil King had his parliament abolish it in the colonies. If you had remained with Britain, slavery would have been a dead issue. Instead, the yankees preserved slavery in their constitution.

    They weren't being ruled by a king. They were afraid that the democratic system would vote against their interests so they took their ball and went home.
    No, they had voted in opposition to what the federal government wanted, by democratic process, and were afraid of the feds ramming it down their throat, just as the King used to do the same. I really can't see why the South was wrong and the Yankees were right. The Revolutionary war did not free the slaves.

    So the values of the South were entirely opposed to those of the Revolution.
    WRT to slavery, it was better for a slave to be in a colony the in the supposedly 'free' america. That's a tremendous blemish.

    Anyhow, we should start a thread in OT.

    It was indeed a big blemish. No denying that. But you support the folks who tried to stop the country from fixing that blemish.

    Though as President of the OT, your opinion may have mattered . Oh, and isn't there a hockey draft thread as well?

    Oh, and one can think the motives of the South for revolting were wrong while the American colonies' motives were correct.

    DC is "The South" technically as it is below the Mason-Dixon line.

    Frankly, all of the hockey threads should be stickied and the other sports should be banned. I'm sick and tired of wading through all of these pseudo-sports to get to the real one.

    I didn't read this thread, but rather then open a new thread with a request to the Moderator, I thought I would just hijack this one :P

    Can the Moderator ensure that any posts on sports that don't include teh sport in the thread title add it? "Survival League Draft Thread" doesn't tell me the sport and I usually end up opening it only to find out it is some useless sport like Baseball.

    It should be a simple thing to include the sport in the title, but many posters seem to forget that their sport isn't the end all, be all.

    Agree with Sparrow. There's too much arrogance on behalf of the Baseball and Football players in this forum, to assume everyone knows all the fantasy threads are about them by default.

    That's not a bad suggestion actually. Oh, and no BSing from certain posters about which is the "real" football and whatnot.

    Actually this can be a stickied question thread, better than PMs or multiple threads, I guess.

    Well, excuuuuuse me. I didn't mean to get anyone's panties in a wad. Normally I would specify.
    If you would put aside your indignance for a moment, I would remind you that I (arrogantly) included all sports in the request.
    So kiss my ass, dipshits.

    They don't need to be giving you a hard time either. When have they ever asked?
    Maybe they did, but if they didn't, they don't need to act so high and mighty.

    I saw no high and mighty-- just some gratuitous slams toward other sports-- so nothing out of the ordinary

    As for idea-- making sure the sport is clearly identified in the thread title is a good idea just like the earlier idea to sticky the draft threads was a good idea.

    But both are also not big deals-- Its not like there is that much traffic in here . But that shouldn't stop the mods from implementing decent ideas
