No it's not. It's like not wearing perfume or cologne even though you want to because someone who maybe around you during the day might possibly be allergic to it.
Sorry, that's the person who is allergic to fragrances problem, not the problem of every person who wants to wear perfume or cologne. I feel that way even though I don't wear cologne.
I disagree. It's a one time thing here -- like giving up your seat for a few minutes or hours, not giving up something you do every day.

More like giving up your seat for an old lady. Helping a blind man to cross the street. Letting pregnant woman and people with disabilities get on the plane first.

rif.org . I said mostly flaming liberals.
In your case it's not so much that you are a flaming liberal, but more so that you are complete f'ing bimbo.

<quoted text>I already said I agree with you as far as general practoce, but I don't have a problem giving up peanuts for one froggin game so people who don't normally get to go can have the opportunity. If I was someone who got 3 bags at every game, I would not be pissed off of I was unable to one time a year.
The problem with that logic is that it leads right into a complete ban.

If they can be banned for 3 hours, while in a stadium for 1 day out of the year and it is no big deal, then how can it possibly be a big deal if they are banned from a stadium for 3 hours while folks are in a stadium for 16 days out of the year. How do you decide when limiting folks freedom of choice for no other reason than to benefit .05% of the population becomes a big deal. Are you telling me that a ban for 3 hours X 16 days or a total of 48 hours out of a whole year is a big deal? It's not.

What about if they completely banned peanuts everywhere, except in your home? Would that be a big deal? Probably not ... I'd probably manage just fine. Egg rolls might not taste the same, but is it going to have some major lasting devastating impact on my life ... I don't think so.

Still, I think it's effing ridiculous. So, I don't think "big deal" is the proper metric. I could say the same about not being able to go to a game, however. It's not a big deal. It won't devastate your life.

Instead, I like this metric ... if .05% of the population don't feel comfortable going to a venue that peanuts have been historically served at for the last 100 years, that isn't my problem ... isn't societies problem ... isn't anybody's problem except the person who suffers from the allergy.

I have to stay in doors in the spring because of my tree allergies. I don't ask that everyone cut down their trees so I can go outside and get to live like everyone else does in the spring time.

Go argue with someone else. Even when they are not directed at me, reading your posts is like nails on a chalk board.

I'm sure it will involve following folks around on topix or blogging.

I ignore his outbursts mostly. I figure it's the medication wearing off.
