    OK, I'll admit getting a bit annoyed seeing the forums cluttered up with endless plugs for the NY Times online service - especially when the same messages are continuously deleted and reposted to keep them at the top of the list.

    But it's time to put the compassion hat on. Our poor RJ member is just struggling to make a living, to get some recognition in a cruel world, to be someone important instead of a also-ran nerd. Put yourself in his shoes and give the guy a break.

    He's trying his heart out to get subscriptions by posting all those messages, just hoping some of you would be sold by the messages and subscribe to the NY Times. But no, you aren't doing that. So please, look into your heart, your soul and see if you can help.

    PLEASE CLICK TO SUBSCRIBE TO NY TIMES TO HELP OUR BUDDY MAKE A DECENT LIVING.

    This fledgling NY Times subscription salesman will be forever in your debt

    Thank you and God Bless!

    Please, please. He's trying so hard. He's even trying to get a second job at MediaMatters by changing the headlines to fit their narrative. Give the poor guy a break!

    Well, I guess times ARE tough, though our resident NY Times salesman seems to be doing quite a good job for the company:

    Times Co. Reports a Loss

    The New York Times Company posted a $14 million net loss for the first quarter of 2015, driven by a pension settlement charge and a drop in lucrative print advertising. But digital subscriptions continued to show solid growth, the company said on Thursday, and digital advertising grew at a double-digit pace.


    http://www.nytimes.com/2015/05/01/business/media/new-york-times-company-q1-earnings.html

    The Times numbers for on-line services are good, but our local RJ buddy does not have good numbers. Probably his tactics and poor people skills not working out. So we all need to pitch in to help.

    Nah.... sorry. I left my wallet at work.


    Besides he's not without other employment possibilities.







    Give him a sign saying "Will Give sex For Food"
    and put him out on the highway
    and see how many canned goods people throw at him at 70 mph.

    I guess I'm just a softie at heart. He really must be struggling so hard. Someone in a PM said he posted 4 messages in a 3 minute period, so you know he's got a good work ethic. Or possibly an obsessive-compulsive disorder like the guy who must repeatedly open a new bar of soap and wash his hands every 2 minutes.

    You and Clitory Hinton can dish that "i'm a softie" BS around and see how many people believe it if you want. Sooner or later I'm going to get you to break face in here and drop that stodgy dignified stance you always take and get into the mud wrestling. LOL.

    Why do right-wingers love to bully people?
    Oh, wait, who am I kidding, that's most of what makes them right-wingers to begin with.
    Carry on.

    Ah yes! No thread is complete without the walking talking bag of rotting cat vaginas calling us bullies. What day is complete without it?

    What's that make? The 4,268th time so far this year?

    He's the archetype of a liberal whose greatest contribution to society can be made from a 14th floor balcony or the front end of a bus. We should wish him a speedy fulfillment of his destiny.

    What's that? All I heard was "bla bla bla I hate being called out for being an asshole bla bla bla"

    Own your assholism, Bob Boob. Everyone here recognizes it.

    Let's review.

    You dragged your trollish lying ideologically myopic butt onto this thread to make yet another of your uber-redundant attempts to bully people who don't share your views by calling them bullies.

    Now you want to show what an cloaca you are by calling people assholes.


    HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA

    All you've accomplished is confirming......

    "You really are the archetype of a liberal whose greatest contribution to society can be made from a 14th floor balcony or at the front end of a bus."

    So sad. All you can manage as a comeback is "I know you are but what am I?" Appropriate, considering what a pathetic arrested-development case you are, but sad nonetheless. Although not terribly surprising, considering the extremely low wattage that your "brain" puts out.

    At least Woodsmen is transparent in his promo activities. Twenty-five thousand posts later and we still have no idea who is paying Southbeach to troll this gay website with right-wing propaganda. Safe to say, it ain't the NY Times.

    Yep the same 4 people who hate Hillary and the NYT.
    And we hate FOX and GWB....get over it.

    I think they consider themselves little "Rush Limbaughs" and get their jollies out of annoying the Gay Liberals.

    Kinda sick and pathetic. Sad to be sure.

    GWB: It is frustratingly slow and will forever be synonymous with Republican stupidity.

    As for the bridge, there are plenty of reasons to hate that too.
