JeffyWantsAnApple,
True story. My wife two weeks ago when we were outside working out at the end of August, some asshole in our neighborhood actually had the gall to cat-call my wife. This douche drives up besides her while jogging and says something to the effect "Hey baby" and made the traditional wolf "arooooo" call and drove off. The bitter irony is they did when I was just going down a very small cul de sac because I like to extend the distance of my run a little by running the small side streets (she just runs the main route cause she's not at that level yet). I was gone for maybe 30 seconds and I hear about and am like "WTF!?!?" Some people; I live in a part of town where we have assholes and inbreds I swear.

In other not sooo serious news news my buddy Chuck and I at work tried to set up a RAID 6 Array on an Ubuntu 14.08 Server and the damn thing refuses to recognize the drive partitions. I'm about to throw the chassis clean across the office because GRUB refuses to install. Some days...

Scammers pretending to be from Revenue Canada leaving threatening voicemails. Blocking their number just isn't satisfying enough, I want to taser them in the eyeballs.
I had three of those yesterday, from three different numbers - one local Ottawa, one Toronto, one overseas. But the recording they're using sounds like a cassette tape machine that's wearing out - the female voice actually warbled the way old cassette tapes used to !

The current scam in my area seems to be a letter, purporting to be from a company preparing to sue you, urging you to phone them and discuss it. But the letter is on plain paper, not company stationery, and nowhere in the letter is the company named. Besides, why would someone send you a letter telling you to call him when he could just pick up the phone? I can't believe anyone would fall for this. Yes, I can: this is Oklahoma.

If I get one more call from somebody with a really foreign accent (sounds like from India) who calls himself "Dan" or "James" but really sounds like his name could be (notice I said could) "Mohinder" or "Ranbir", asking if I want to eliminate my credit card debt, I'm going to have a freakin' fit!

I heard some #MeToo stories today that made my blood boil -- most of them occurring within my circle of family and friends and one of them involving the same man who had harassed me, only this happened years earlier. Makes me wonder who he harassed after me and that thought is driving me crazy. I no longer know anyone in the city where he lives (not CT, thank god!), so I can do nothing. But it makes me want to break everything.

*Huuuuuugs* God, Tad. So sorry you had to get such news. You're always such a voice of strength and reason around here. I hope the support you always give will be given to you a hundredfold in this time. I'll be thinking of you and your family.

Someone's been spamming all the forums on another site I'm on with personal ads looking for someone (male) with a "MAX age 18-22" for kinky sex (she's 57). She used to have a line in her profile saying that if you're old enough to have facial hair or body hair you're too old, but she's since removed that. Given the stress on "MAX" and an age range that starts at 18, as well as the now-deleted note about anybody old enough to have facial or body hair being too old (most boys start developing those in their early to mid teens), it seems very predatory to me, but because she's a woman and looking for boys instead of a man looking for girls, everyone seems to be just looking the other way or treating it as, "Hey, not my thing, but to each their own." It seems to go along with the general cultural idea that girls preyed upon by older men are exploited (which I agree with) but boys preyed upon by older women are lucky (no, they're also exploited), and it makes me seriously angry.

That's super creepy and predatory. Are the mods on that site doing anything about it?
