    1) Is it on OCDO or on your computer (based on cookies)?

    2) Why are you asking here instead of PMing John Pierce who would be most interested in researching this?

    I don't mind if the anti-gunners advertise here. I luuuuuv the idea they help fund our forum.
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    Since no one here is going to fall for their line and because they have to PAY for each impression, as Citizen said, it is rather ironic that the other side is supporting the forum.

    What ad?

    Step 1: Download and install Firefox
    Step 2: Upper left hand corner click "Tools".
    Step 3: Scroll down and click "Add-ons"
    Step 4: In the Add-ons search bar enter "Adblock Plus"
    Step 5: Install "Adblock Plus" and surf with no ads flashing in your face!
