To be clear, I did not understand that my request would mean altering the history of the board (which I would not want, either).

Voronwë, I've checked the control panel and can't find a way to de-member myself. Could you please remove me from membership? Thanks.

Re: 2020 Election: Predictions, Results and Reactions

I wouldn't dream of modifying my use of words based on what someone tells me other people say. I know what I mean by the words I use, and I have stated what I mean as clearly as I am able, and that is an end of the matter to me.

It does not mean Jews. We had a discussion of this a short time ago, somewhere; Túrin succinctly characterized what is understood by the phrase, and anyone who is sincerely interested in understanding what is meant by this can take the time to scroll through some threads.

Re: 2020 Election: Predictions, Results and Reactions

If there is one thing everyone should understand at this point, it's that the nation is divided. One half of the country sees things differently than the other half sees them. How you view the election and the lawsuits from your global elitist perspective (or however you would prefer to characterize...

Re: 2020 Election: Predictions, Results and Reactions

Do the publications questioning the lack of a concession not understand that there are recounts and court cases pending, and that it would make no sense for Trump to concede before these recounts and court cases reach their conclusions? Did Al Gore concede before his recount in a single state was co...

Re: 2020 Election: Predictions, Results and Reactions

"Polling is difficult and imperfect, which is evidence that mainstream media outlets are dishonest and biased" is certainly a very post-Trump way of viewing the world. Polling aside, there is, imo, no question that the media is biased. And yes, the degree to which it has abandoned even a ...

Re: 2020 Election: Predictions, Results and Reactions

Logically speaking, the mainstream media narrative being pushed now is probably just as accurate as the polling narrative they pushed for months, considering that the underlying bias is the same.

Re: 2020 Election: Predictions, Results and Reactions

Incidentally, Philadelphia did *not* halt counting overnight. They have live webcams of their poll workers to prove it. The whole accusation is just the usual social media bullshit. My post about vote-counting being stopped was based in part on a post by Voronwë which mentioned counting being stopp...

Re: 2020 Election: Predictions, Results and Reactions

I'd imagine the reaction amongst some might sound similar to this: All of the swing states have Republican Governors and Secretaries of State, who will control the voting processes in those states. Eighty percent of votes will be cast on electronic voting machines that are owned by Republican-leani...

Re: 2020 Election: Predictions, Results and Reactions

It's really not suspicious at all. We were repeatedly told in advance that the vote would not be all counted tonight. And I think that as a general matter, boards of election in urban areas are underfunded and understaffed compared to other districts. And yet I can just imagine the reaction if thre...

Re: 2020 Election: Predictions, Results and Reactions

It's tremendously upsetting and suspicious that they are stopping the vote count in these vital areas where the process is controlled by Democrats and Trump is leading. Normally vote counting would continue long into the night. I've just heard a report that poll workers are walking out of a building...

Re: 2020 Presidential Election

Now that it's been explained to me, that it works without results being leaked, I can see the sense of beginning counting early. (The article Voronwë posted explained that the suit in question was about the procedures being used in that particular case).

Re: 2020 Presidential Election

The Supreme Court has ruled 5-3 that ballots in Wisconsin must be in by election day, not six days after. Presumably, the principle will hold across the board when the other state cases reach the court. I'm tremendously relieved by this, because having ballots come in for days would have guaranteed ...

Re: 2020 Presidential Election

Voronwë, I was responding specifically to elengil's proposal, that the reason for Texas limiting the number of boxes to one per county was to set up 'consolidated targets.' In that case, it would be a larger number of ballots being destroyed from a variety of areas and constituencies; so once again ...
