"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.
Are hipsters the ones who who are into obscure hoppy micro craft beers and weird imported trappist trippels and imperial stouts you've never heard of . . . or are they ones that are into Pabst Blue Ribbon and other run-of-the-mill blue…"
"That's why medical costs keep going up. Un/underinsured go to the hospital and never pay their bills. Just google what your county hospital writes off in a year in unpaid hospital bills...So hospitals raise their costs across the…"
""Why not? I can decide that someone that pulls a gun in McDonalds over poor quality McNuggets is over-reacting, why can't I decide that getting someone fired and publicly castigated for properly using the word "niggardly"…"
"I know why it's that way with tuition. I'm sure that it's for the same reason in most of, if not all, those other categories you listed.
The government is constantly giving young men and women money to "help" them pay for…"

"As a side bar, I was told years ago that when Playgirl magazine was first published, men for the first time got to feel what it's been like for women forever it seems. (No one of either gender can compete with the perfect air-brushed…"
""I'll also add: if there needs to be a change, the leaders of the change should be members of the group. For self-appointed guardians to decide for other ethnicities what they should be offended by seems pretty demeaning."
"The whole "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me" thing is B.S. I remember meeting a woman in her 80s a few years ago who shared with me that when she was a child she was called ugly, and that stuck with…"
