"I posted in both threads when I locked them saying it was locked (and the first one, explicitly why). That's as clear as I know how to make it. I welcome other suggestions.
I'll erase the threads later today unless the…"
"I recommend putting up a visible indicator that makes it obvious that the discussion was pro-actively locked by moderators and the reason for said locking. Otherwise it just looks like a rapey discussion that's sitting there, inactive but…"
Brother McKay - Anything you can do on the blog to revitalize the official AoM book club? Great idea but starting to fade. I just joined today, hoping to find a vital community but not much happening there.
Been following your site for a while, decided to join the Community recently. Noticed you also have a section on Careers, and recently did a podcast with John Corcoran about reaching influencers.
I am also finishing a guide for people looking to get ahead in life, it's got a ton of powerful "hacks" that not a lot of people are talking about yet. It can save a lot of time for job seekers, headhunters etc and can also be applied for entrepreneurs.
I think your audience could find many of them useful in their business/life/work.
Would you be interested in taking a look at it, and tell me what you think?
I really like most of your articles and even more — so I've already translated one of them into russian (talkin' about Adrian Peter Shmidt and his odd exercises).
So my question is: can I place my translation of your article at FurFur.me? This is the popular russian web-issue about men's way of life in the modern city. And don't worry, I promise to put the active link of original article below or even above the translation!
I think you guys doing the great things and I want to share it with the russian audience, chasing the goal to promote healthy way of life and ideals of manliness.
"What does that actually have to do with the matter? Because we have a high standard for entry we shouldn't consider refining or pausing the inflow while we work with other nations (who are not currently assisting us in the vetting process), to…"
"If you spent 3 years trying to get somewhere and someone told you that because you come from a certain place, not only are you not getting in right now, but you might not get in at all, how would you feel?
Not to mention, in some cases these folks…"
"Ok, so in spending 3 years of vetting, another 90 days will be that big of a deal? Remember, we're dealing specifically with countries that are NOT cooperating with the vetting process. Personally, I'd prefer we waited longer and had a…"
"What Obama did was a slow down, not a pause, and certainly not a "ban". There were still people coming in while the "slow down" was in effect. No one spent 3 years going through the process, only to be told during the…"
"So then is he factually incorrect? He proposes his solution, or any solution and then what? The courts shoot it down. Ok, so how long does that go on when you have judges lobbying from the bench before you simply throw up your hands and walk…"
"The world only expect you to be world police because that's the role you've willingly taken on for yourself and haven't let go of. If I never volunteer to shovel my neighbour's driveway, he'll never expect me to just come…"
