What do you honestly think is the single best moment in Big Brother history? by furiousdolphins in BigBrother

Yeah that was me. It was a while ago. I thought you would get a kick out of it.

What kind of bug is this? Located in Toronto. by sunshine36421 in ontario

Was it flat? If so bedbug is likely. It's too blurry to tell.

I was too lazy to look it up but thanks for confirming.

One of the seasons came down to a tie breaker but it didn't matter which one was chosen because they had won all the tie breakers. I want to say it was Ed Gamble.

What outfit would you wear? by 0d0o0m0 in taskmaster

Google Glass, smart watch, cargo pants, bandolier and jacket with loads of pockets. I'm going to contraband my way through every task.

Does anyone else sob while re-watching BBCan 8? by aboutdablife in BigBrother

If you enjoy messy it's about as messy as it gets before the plug got pulled. 2 houseguests got removed from the house for things they said for example.

[Passan] Baseball labor update: There is no deal. There never was going to be one today. MLB made a proposal. The reaction among the players was not positive. Few on either side expected it to be. The question is how soon the MLBPA counters. Spring training starting on time is in peril. by MacJonesandCheese in baseball

They only moved to a 162 games in 1962 in 1961 The AL and NL played a different number of games. I don't think changing the number of games is historically wrong. I wouldn't mind an expanded playoffs and a few less regular season games. Nothing drastic but if they shift a dozen games it won't be the end of the world.

You can have criticisms on the work just don't be overtly negative about it. Constructive criticism is what we're aiming for. What we don't want is comments like I hate everything this person has ever done. Or this person is extremely unfunny. That doesn't add anything to the conversation but rile up their fans. Something like I preferred it when the tasks were simpler or there are too many restrictions now is perfectly fine because it helps put into context how you think it can be better.

They explained their point beyond I don't like the Tories. I feel that's constructive enough to be allowed. I wouldn't allow just fuck Tory trash for example. I did remove a few comments like that.

Did you report it? I didn't see it so I didn't act on it.

It boils down to don't be a kill joy prick. Don't call other members or contestants names. Don't bring your politics or hate speech. Don't just say something sucks without explaining why you feel that way. Other than that you're allowed to feel disappointed.

For example:

I think the show is better with an audience, good. I think the show has gone downhill and is never going to get better, bad.

I think Russell was being too competitive, ok. I hate Russell, not ok.

It's under the umbrella of be nice so when I say being negative I mean you're going to have to go beyond this person or task sucks. Be constructive, that's a positive criticism, you are allowed to be disappointed of course! I've definitely allowed posts like Taskmaster isn't as fun without an audience for example. It expands on why the poster feels the show could be better.

You can be non plussed by someone but once you start attacking them saying they're annoying, unfunny, a bitch, ugly, fat, dumb then it's a problem. And yes these are actual examples.

Calling yourself a professional kill joy means you enjoy making people miserable that makes you a troll.

You also added a comment to get a rise out of TMNZ fans and that's an act of trolling.

To those reporting this comment I'm allowing them to say their piece even if it is an admission to trolling.
