    I volunteer for a school for special kids. I am aware the term is not
    supposed to used anymore. Medical professionals use the term "MR"
    (mentally retarded).

    I call the kids "special people" (not directly to them) and they teach me
    things about life in general. They don't have mean streaks, it's almost
    like they are pure, like they never learned how to hate or be mean. They
    just want hugs and someone to talk to. We are not allowed to give them
    real hugs anymore, legal said it was a liability. :-(

    Sure it does - look at the manufacture date.

  3. More PC crap IMO. Any new term for that affliction can (and probably
    will) eventually be used in a derogatory manner causing it to be
    campaigned against in the name of political correctness.

    I couldn't help but notice you tried spinning what he told you to
    something else in another newsgroup. [g]

    Take your own advice, stupid. Think before you hit reply and write
    nonsense, lies, and, slime.

    Then again, one can never truly know who's written posts that appear
    under the troll's "name".

    Linda at least I don't pretend they're all my own work.... which I
    imagine you do. Just saying!

    Another lie. You do claim them as your own work, unless/until one of
    us finds out where the information really came from and brings to
    everyones attention. THEN, you admit it's not yours and try to
    deflect; as you're doing now.

    I think i'll put you in the score file today too. clean up some
    clutter and useless posts.

    Any post that appears under my nym was written by me unless I say
    otherwise. And you do pretend they're your own work because you never
    mention who actually wrote them until you get called out. Think about
    that you lying troll.

    NEW POST ------------ 12/14/2014 -------------

    I did a clean reinstall,the problem went away, until today, when Windows 8.1 would not boot and I had to do another reinstall (without formating). h Elp !! !!! meee... pA ul an d Fl asher ly... lol

    My question is:

    It seems the "Seagate 1TB" HDD is bad...but can that be? If I had the old Western Digital 500 MB HDD as "C", in November, and this Seagate 1Tb HDD as"D", back in November, and I did a clean reinstall around Thanksgiving Nov25, but switched SATA3 drives (so the old Seagate "D" drive is now "C", and vice versa), is it possible that the old WD HDD can 'infect' the new drive with problems? I did a fast format of both drives in November (and deleted the old Windows), so the chances of a virus somehow living on the old drive and infecting the new drive are slim. Also I run MS Security Essentials, full scan, and it's not found a virus.

    If my theory about the old drive somehow corrupting the new drive is true, or, equally (because I believe this is true) the Seagate 1 TB drive--the new 'c' drive,old 'd' drive--was defective when I purchased it this year (long story, but the merchant I bought it from sold it suspiciously quick, cheap and with a smirk on his face, and it did not have the original box, though it has warranty stickers on it (this being southeast Asia)--then is it possible that my November problem was caused by the Seagate drive (which at that time was drive "D", now it's system drive "C"). Any feedback appreciated. I've built many a PC from scratch and also code so I'm not a total noob..

    PC is running Windows 8.1, legal version (ironically I had no problems withthis same system --minus the 'new' and I think defective Seagate 1TB drive-- running a pirate version of Win7) and has mostly legal software save a suspect version of Visual Studio 2013, was built around 2011, i5-quad core, RAM memory is fine except when it is not seated properly (which often happens every few years, but I pop the case, reseat the memory, and the problem goes away--btw, can a memory chip not seated properly cause a HD error, as in CHKDSK error? Interesting if so...) and the BIOS is AMD's with the latest (as of last year) version reflashed into it (I did this after the clean reinstall in Nov. 25).
