Question on crosspost etiquette

So last night, shit went down almost solely because of a crosspost by a member of oppo and another kinja blog. Normally this itself wouldn't warrant a blog post but we are currently editing and revising the handbook so now is the time to bring it up - how do we/they handle crossposts? Actual discussion and suggestions… » 7/28/14 1:30am Today 1:30am

I'll drop who OP was. I didn't read the post but in all seriousness, he's still growing up and didn't deserve the treatment from what I understand - It was K-roll talking about teenage/college time girl problems. He was the typical level of dumb you expect from an 18-22 y/o who is just starting to understand that… » 7/28/14 1:14am Today 1:14am

Schtickers - a website dedicated to making laptop skins for the lid or even the palmrests and side bits of the laptop. I had a really nice one years ago for my asus that had a piano black lid but nothing in terms of badging or ornamentation. They managed to nail this design quite well. » 7/27/14 9:07pm Yesterday 9:07pm

I know a lot of people are saying "Don't go" or "you did nothing wrong" but here's a piece of advice from what I observed - you lack a bit of empathy that comes from life experiences but your interaction with us on Oppo is giving them to you. I didn't see the original post, nor do I really care, but you have a bad… » 7/27/14 8:42pm Yesterday 8:42pm

I think the person who changes it themselves are more likely to double gasket than anything else. I always shudder when my car-ignorant friends do their first ever oil change themselves and they don't know what I mean when I ask if their old gasket stuck. In the dead of winter I don't have a garage to do my own oil… » 7/25/14 5:08pm Friday 5:08pm

eeko. "Echo"boost is a mispronunciation or a product of a dialect. "Eco" in ecoboost comes from "ecological" so logic says that ecoboost follows the same pronunciation. You can hear an english pronunciation here » 7/25/14 1:23pm Friday 1:23pm

Minivans. Specifically the dodge/chrysler vans with that brutish pentastar V6. It's not that the vans should be saddled with an anemic four banger for hauling 8 people and a trailer, but the drivers of minivans often thrash them like they're in a sports sedan. They are not. They are not meant for constant 70 mph… » 7/25/14 12:16pm Friday 12:16pm

Wait, the "best" game boy was the worst? The screen was too small and a different ratio than the others o you had distortion of the game image. I had a friend who bought one and he struggled to read text in games like fire emblem. The SP was the best of the lineup by far. Rechargeable batteries and backlighting with a… » 7/25/14 8:33am Friday 8:33am

The celica is okay but at that point, I say he should spend the xtra dough and get a minty 2003 Focus SVT. The more you spend initially, the less you spend in the long run. And for his "reliable" vehicle if his other car will be an old 944? I'm trying to get him as close to the current millenium as possible. » 7/25/14 2:04am Friday 2:04am

........Okay? The 3000gt isn't forgotten, it's just not the most popular car. I love them as GT cars though. I want a silver one with gold 5-spokes, a 1" drop on stiffer springs and shocks/struts and a very low wing. No engine upgrades. Stock power and delivery is enough. » 7/24/14 10:35pm Thursday 10:35pm
