    Someone must have handed them a mirror. Death by ugly, finally documented. Now maybe you all will start taking a guy's self esteem issues more seriously.

    Why is this in the politics section? Was the deductible so high on their new Obamacare policies that they couldn't afford to go to the doctor? Did the thought of a Hillary presidency drive them to mass suicide? Were they crossing the road when Marco Rubio was driving by? Are they part of that shrinking Republican conservative base?

    Maybe half of them are just transitioning and will be back soon as female saiga.

    There were never but a handful anyway. The rest were socks of the conservative ones.

    Ah, read the forum description: "Discuss general news & politics"

    This Saiga item is general news. When I proposed this forum title and wrote that description it was to separate the existing gay news from general news and politics, which used to be all thrown together. I also proposed a separate Politics forum, but the site Admin at that time didn't want a proliferation of forum topics. He let me add one more topic to the sports section, but that was it.

    Someone wrote this methinks!

    "Many people had suggested various forum topics, but the then-admin ignored them all. But finally after I made the suggestion that a new Forum area be established, the then-admin saw the light. He wrote to me that all the previous suggestions to him didn't make too much sense, but mine was so well thought out, both logical and intelligent, that he finally saw the light. He even offered to include my screen name in the Forum title, but I suggested he not do that. I'm very humble and modest and would be embarrassed at such recognition. That's just the way I am."

    The result of massive poaching, and then along comes a disease wiping out many of the ones left. Without their previous numbers, the species could disappear, which would be a shame.
