A Gentle Reminder

From the FAQ: About Essay Content and Sourcing

C99 is a non-partisan site. That means that the site itself takes no official stance on any political party or candidate. Users are free to support any candidate or party across the political spectrum, from left to right. You are liable to see essays and comments here that also span that political arc. We are an open discussion board that takes pride in tolerance and a lack of censorship unless it is beyond the pale of civility. Beyond the pale of civility is a blanket term but I think we all would agree that there are some things that should be out of bounds and we would all recognize them as such if they were to pop up.

It's easy for a toe to cross the line when tap dancing close to it.

About Those Essays...

First there was the essay accusing "us" of being enablers of racists. Then there was the essay telling "us" we must be either miserable, depressed, or lazy for voicing our un-cited belief in the various ways we will be electorally screwed again come 2020.

Can "we" not speak for everyone here in our essays anymore?

Thank you.

Meta Monkeyshines: The FAQs and only the FAQs

Several days ago the c99p Monkey Team was assembled (see photo below), with apologies, please ignore that the Team are actually apes, but that is another tail, err tailess, err tale. With an important commission in mind, the Team and myself were locked in a undisclosed location for three days, a store of libation including a 50 gallon drum of coffee for the Team leader and several drums of banana smoothies for the coalition of the willing, willing that is, as long as the smoothies flowed freely.

We still haven't heard from either of them and under the circumstances that is understandable.

Folks, We Need to Come Together for One of Our Own

In case you haven't heard, there has been a large and dangerous wildfire in Northern California that started yesterday morning. From what I've read and seen the town of Paradise has been devastated.

One of our dear friends and author, hecate, lives in that general area with his beloved pets. Folks, if you pray to any deity, please do.
