    I don't like blackboard. I don't know why but my eyes don't like white text on black background. Reading in dark mode is harder for me.

    I rotate between dark blue, light blue, green, and grey. Just switch whenever I get tired of looking at the color.

    I prefer white text on dark. The blackness of it is a little windows 95 contrast, but it’s alright so far. I’d enjoy a dark gray.

    gambling board has been replaced by the gambling thread here.
    idk about the video game and book boards, they could probably get replaced by threads here.
    got board should just be archived

    I would burn this motherfucker down if they came for the Book Club Board.

    You can also ignore sub boards - I had completely forgotten we even had a Soccer or Gambling board.

    Example?

    If they're just wearing shit fuck t shirts or hats, I ignore it as they're just seeking attention. IF they're bullying people, I'd step in.

    some old white guy yelling at a latino dude who's just buying stuff at Safeway about "his people" are ruining "my country." it's not like i'm some tough guy but i would have knocked him into last week. and no one said anything, including myself.

    we all just checked out. it was bizarre.

    I understand the regret. Just do something next time. It's all you can do.

    I dont consider myself some tough guy either and It's hard not to sound like a douche but Im a pretty big guy 6'5 230 (dan patrick *ding*) and can be physically intimidating when I want to. Ive diffused a lot of bar fights because of my idiot friends. Havent actually had to get into a fight since college. :idk:

    Only time Ive really had to stop something like that recently was on the L. When one group of kids was really bullying a younger girl.
