OPEN THREAD: Welcome to SPARTA REPORT! Contests and Prizes HERE! Contest Over!

The time has come for Hot Gas dot Net to gradu­ate from High School and move on to the “big leagues,” as Donald Trump would say. We are now a dot com! Welcome to!

A couple of things to note:

  1. Manage­ment and owner­ship remains the same as it did at Hot Gas.
  2. There will be NO Facebook comment­ing installed.
  3. Our mission - to promote conser­vatism, Ameri­can­ism, and liber­ty while fight­ing the left at every oppor­tu­ni­ty — will remain the same.
  4. This gets us out from under the shadow of DeadAir, remov­ing any oppor­tu­ni­ty for accusa­tions of copycat­ting. We’re our own indepen­dent entity, putting those old memories behind us.
  5. will redirect you to for the time being, to give you time to change your favorites.
  6. Follow us on twitter @spartareport.
  7. Like and share us on  Facebook! Just click the button to like us in the sidebar!

As part of the new rollout, we are holding sever­al contests* today, in this very thread:

  1. Coolest catch­phrase to go with our header that captures the essence of what we are about (i.e. Ace’s H.L. Menck­en quote at Ace of Spades)
  2. Coolest “boss tag” name for the moder­a­tors
  3. Best art work to be used as featured pic in all open threads (No copyright viola­tions please!)

*The winners will be chosen by the moder­a­tors, but to quali­fy you must get a signif­i­cant number of up-votes from your peers.

*The winners get a $100 Amazon gift card emailed to them direct­ly, courtesy of Sparta Report!
