    Huh. Guess all those pioneers that settled North America were all on public utilities.

    History's been lying to us all these decades. 

    As Love said it's likely something weird with the way Americans use English compared to the rest of the world.

    Off the grid is pretty much you make your own power.

    I wish for innocence to return once more.

    Granted, but those daipers you are wearing chafe and that tall person who makes the funny noises keeps wanting to put her female presenting nipples in your mouth.

    I wish the USA toddler in chief would allow all the unfortunate furloughed federal workers to return to the jobs so they can pay mortgages and feed their kids.

    Someone looks for an “off grid” relationship but will use SL. In American English, “going off grid” means without internet, away from society (perhaps without communications and even electricity).

    It's a bit of a spectrum. One can take one's city home off grid if you install solar power and a water tank (although sewage still goes through the pipes and you have internet)

    As Wikipedia says

    Quote

    A common misconception is that a true off-grid house is able to operate completely independently of all traditional public utility services. Although this is not the case. The term "off the grid" traditionally refers to the electrical grid only.

    A sign of historical sickness, absolutely, same as my examples of Gay Pride and Black Pride. In a healthy world, there would be no reason to be "proud" of any identity, only of achievement.

    Don't you think this (condensed) statement is highly offensive...

    all pride in identity rather than in achievement is a sign of sickness,

    Being proud is a way for those in a minority to throw off the chains of their oppressors. You might think Gay Pride or Female Pride is a sickness, but it is through this pride that these marginalised groups find each other, find a common voice, and rise above the oppression of the patriarchy.

    It's not a sickness Qie.

    It's not really new, but happening quite often lately... why do people put their name in the Subject field/Title of the thread?, also see this in the Answers section.
    For me it doesn't make sense... put your related subject there is a lot easier to catch attention.

    I've often wondered it, the best reason I can come up with is that people think this an official way to get support from the lab.

    The only thing I have been able to figure out is to block the persons IM and text.  But, from what I understand this won't totally block him?  Is this true?

    Yes, this is what a block is. It stops the person sending IMs/Text. It also stops notecards and inventory offers. You will see therm turn into a grey shadow.

    It only affects you. It doesn't stop them seeing you, and it doesn't stop them hearing what you say in local chat.
