Why do they get away with "We'd love to help you what is your number/name/id etc" Do they have so many unresolved complaints that they have no hope of tracking it down without a number? And if so.... why are they so bad at their business?

How much does it cost to deploy 1200 firefighters? How much are those 69 homes worth?
Forests need to burn, its what they do, the longer you keep them from burning the worse the fire is. Can we please start managing forests responsibly with controlled burns.

commented on Lindy West vs. Jim Norton: Are Rape Jokes Okay?
Jim Norton destroys his own side when he mentions that comedy is about speaking truth to power. Rape victims have no power. Making jokes at their expense is not only offensive it is bad comedy. If you want to make good comedy about rape it should start with being at the expense of the rapist(s) and their enablers.
So, yes a joke involving a rape situation could potentially be 'okay' but it certainly is more of a minefield than say... how many Starbucks' are in Seattle.

Well, perusing the gutter of urban dictionary leads to 3 main possibilities they are asking you to stop:
1. Luring sailors to a sexy watery grave.
2. A particular subset of fashion sense too nuanced for me to attempt to describe.
3. Only giving oral sex.
