Fellas,

I admire how that thread was handled, but it got to a point where names were getting used and that can lead to a bad path as we are all clearly different in our preferences.

With the news that came out yesterday from the DOJ and the fallout that's going to come, I just felt like that thread would have gone worse than it already started to get.

I'm completely open for discussion on this. I'm not a dictator - this place is for ALL of us. Tell me what you think.
This is fine and I'm fine with it. Not mad it was closed.

If people want my opinions on such things, they can DM me. Chances are they will not.

Should you ever drink beer with pie?  (Not pizza, regular pie, like apple).  (Asking for an aunt.)
... Is there any good beer desert combo? I feel like sugar residue on the tastebuds makes beer (soda too) taste very odd.

Stout floats is a good one. 

Any REALLY dark stout with a very chocolate dessert pairs well. 

Some Belgian beers can pair well with dessert. 

And sometimes beer with another beer is a great dessert.

Bingo.  This is the correct answer.

But yeah, a Belgian Kriek with chocolate cake is really tasty.

New Glarus Wisconsin Belgian Red, their Raspberry Tart or Serendipity are some of the best fruit beers in the world, and are great w dessert.   Of course you can only buy them in WI or through a friendly trade.

Even my non beer drinking friends love em.

I have six or so bottles at my home. Large format w a wax seal on the cap.

My pie choices after drinking beer are questionable at best.

There's a whole forum at the bottom of the list where people can discuss politics.  
That's not a place to discuss anything.  It's an echo chamber for the willfully ignorant and anyone to the left of Rush Limbaugh is outnumbered 10 to 1.

True. So there are places to debate politics elsewhere than this site. 

That's where I do it, because Area 51 is a cesspool.

it didn't use to be that way...   

i keep hoping it will turn around.  folks didn't use to take things personal- they argued the topic and not each other... however, the 'trick' to that joint is extremism... absurdity... 

I'm as conservative as they come i don't mind telling y'all- but i still speak in absurdities there- and those guys respond in like... i'd have a beer with any and all of them- we'd just laugh and laugh... seriously.. and i call them friends even though i've not met most of them, personally, myself... and i'll stand by them and let them become whatever they become as a collective or individual... and they'll always have a home so long as i can afford renting the server.  i promised them that.  i'll stand by that promise just like the one to y'all. 

atop that- i'll continue to throw crap at the wall and see what sticks, which is the nature of that place- or at least the nature that it once was..... well, it's still that.. it just seems to have a sense of finality to it now... seriousness... as if people are trying to force their will instead of listening to other opinions... it has straight up lost that characteristic.  People don't seem to want to hear others opinions- they want to hear their opinion come from your mouth... i heard that somewhere... that seems to be the case there, now... and i don't know what to do about it. 

i think i'll try to force a reset... it is past time.  the only reason i've not done it is because it would seem like moderation coming from me, and, i'm still not certain the appearance of what happens there is the actuality of it (as understood by the 'old' group there). 

i don't expect that to make sense to anyone here... you'd had to have been 'there' almost 20 years ago when it was conceived and reset daily... until folks caught on.
