@Sabrblade Depends on when you're here. I used to have the backups happen once daily, now I have them happen once per hour so you might often see a hesitation at the top of every hour for 30-45 seconds.

Second thing is we do actually have the ability to ban users specifically from using Shoutbox if it's being abused like that

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Hey all - just a reminder and heads up. The Shoutbox has been kept here as a courtesy because it's what you folks like in lieu of Discord - but a few things to remember is that P&R should stay in P&R and isn't really something that needs to be dragged out here in the most public of spaces.

There was a thread but it appears to have disappeared. Might have been lost in one of the older forum sweeps.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 09:58 AM)

Yeah this is pretty much circumventing the fact that we have different rules for political talk.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2019 - 09:55 AM)

Okay, so, basically, can we not do politics in here anymore? I mean, considering how often @Nevermore, you talk about your work conditions, don't you think it's time for a dedicated thread in P&R?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 July 2019 - 08:52 AM)

It's amusing how so many (U.S.) wankers in this world love to whine "capitalism good socialism bad!" in the abstract while simultaneously pretending that megacorporations dominating de facto monopolies is anathema to the core capitalistic principle of competition benefits everyone.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 05:17 AM)

I know Shockwave's super mode is pretty lame and Magnus is kinda greebly but it's not that bad.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 July 2019 - 12:38 AM)

Though with the luck and caliber of leaders we've had of late in the darkest timeline, maybe it's too much to hope for.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 July 2019 - 12:36 AM)

Just like democracy, it's not perfect but better than the present alternatives. Capitalism as it's practiced today won't be able to weather the coming wave of automation, though. Best to plan for it and hope for a gentle transition rather than the aforementioned collapse

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 12:27 AM)

Capitalism is the worst amiright? Sent from my iPhone

@  Vexwing : (15 July 2019 - 11:24 PM)

Because the collapse is gonna be just great.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 July 2019 - 10:41 PM)

Let's hope this is late stage and we're on the cusp of something better.

@  abates : (15 July 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Late stage capitalism is the absolute best.

That's not a huge shock to me considering how much is going on right now.

Interesting note: The Arrow wiki has a screenshot of Felicity's file on Vigilante from the premiere (when he was a candidate for the new Team Arrow). He's identified as a hacktivist, kinda sorta like the group Felicity just joined up with? (I'm not putting all of my hopes into this one, just because it could've been something the art department did on their own, but I'm keeping an eye on it.)

The Vigilante is secret bad-ass, Felicity's dad, hacker extraordinaire, the Calculator!

 

EDIT:  Seriously though, that puts Felicity's "friend" in Helix as a contender for Vigilante.  I don't think the show would put in that kind of an Easter Egg just to drop it.  The Arrow-verse has been very deliberate about that stuff since Day 1.

The building exterior that Team Arrow rescues Susan from looks to be the same building used for the exterior of the mental home that Polly was living in on Riverdale.

 

Also, was anyone else getting discomforting flashbacks to The Dark Knight Rises from that last scene with Talia? :rolleyes

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

I thought Oliver already had said to Felicity or Diggle that he used to kill because he wanted to, at some previous point in the show. This confession of his to Adrian really doesn't sound that new or surprising.

Gotta say, I was a little disappointed how much focal time the Helix vs. Argus plot took away from the Chase manhunt plot, but that reunion between Rene and his daughter got me right here.

 

As much as I like Wilddog, once he gets his daughter back for good, I want Rene to hang up his hockey mask and become the full-time father that she needs him to be. Though he's a hero to the city as Wilddog, he can be a greater hero to his daughter just by being her dad.

So much Batman going on in this show. How many times is Oliver going to question himself and what it is he is doing? Id rather see more team ups with Flash and Supergirl vs his team of merry men.

I didn't have it so bad, but my cable company's inability to deliver CBS or CW channels reliably meant that the final flashback scene completely checkerboarded out.  Anything surprising or interesting happen beyond

Spoiler
 Because that much I was able to figure out from the few seconds before it went completely garbled.  Signal came back in time for the final present-day scene.
